We had a lovely time in Galway. Nice location lovely hotel spotlessly clean great food etc. Only fault was on last night of stay food was just ok small portions compared with other nights. Waited full hour for dessert after main course and then only got one of two. Staff seemed under pressure.

nice hotel and good food but room not clean
Check in was good and swift. Food was good. Service was ok. Room was not clean. Cobwebs on window. Old sweet on the floor under the dressing table which was not one of ours. Rubbish not cleared from between locker and curtain wall. Bits of plastic and papers from previous guests throw down beside the locker. Dust on bedside lights. Lots of traffic noise as it’s beside a very busy road so we couldn’t leave the window open and air con kept going off itself.

Filled discriminated
Hi, the hotel is very good but the experience we have with the staff was very disappointed. From the beginning when we do the check-in nobody informed us that they have presume we are flying over different country, so we filled discriminate. Me with my family, we are living in Ireland for 12 years and never had this problems. I have compiled to the Manager therebut still nothing changed, they had the same attitude through us. Me and my family are very disappointed about this and i think if nobody will contact me to ghive me the proper explanation why we was treated differently, they will here from my solicitor.

Great friendly staff!
I have to say the hotel was in a great location. In 10 minutes you can walk straight into the city centre. The staff where lovely and really helpful. I have to give a big thank you to Leona on reception she booked us into a very busy Galway city centre for dinner. Without her we would have been walking around hoping for a space in a very tightly run Covid- Galway. Everywhere was already booked and we really struggled getting places to eat in Galway town due to the restrictions.

Gaway break.
The hotel has free parking underground, ideally situated for touring, only 25 minutes walk from eyre square. Friendly staff and excellent food in the restaurant. Plenty of hand sanitizers in the hotel.
