What a gem of a hotel . Quirky but beautiful. Staff are exceptional. They seem to take great pride in the hotel. Food was fantastic . I am wheat intolerant and I have never stayed anywhere with a better range of options. Overall a fantastic place I will definitely return too.

We stayed here in April 2015 as a family. The hotel is excellent, the family room we received was quiet, spacious and well appointed, with TV's in both the master bedroom and the sitting room.The bathroom was clean and functional. Breakfast is an excellent experience, and the staff are super friendly and helpful. Our daughter blocked the sink with paper... More

We stayed last night in The Twelve hotel as a surprise for my other half's birthday. We have stayed here on previous occasions but hadn't been fortunate to get back there for a while.... On arrival we were greeted by a delightful girl at reception who took our details and checked us in, she then welcomed us back and thanked... More

This hotel in Barna hidden twenty minutes (depending on traffic) from Galway city is an absolutely charming hotel. Arrived to a complimentary iced tea and an extremely warm and friendly welcome from the girl on reception. The room was spacious, spotlessly clean and had beautiful Voya products to use as required. The only negative was the main road was busy... More

Fabulous Easter lunch with the family, was very busy but the staff still managed fast and friendly service. Kids had garlic bread and chips, the garlic bread was a culinary masterpiece- the pizza chef needs a raise! My only gripe was with my warm chicken salad instead of been drizzled in balsamic it was drenched but I still ate it.... More

We stayed here for an overnight break and we're delighted with our choice. We couldn't have felt more welcome. Our package included an evening meal which we had in West Restaurant. We paid a small supplement to eat there rather than in the Bistro. We thought the food was superb. The restaurant was quiet that evening so perhaps lacked a... More

Stayed with my partner for extended weekend, the hotel and the countryside are overwhelming. Rooms are roomy and well decorated. The beds are good quality and the hotel is very silent. The room was equipped with small bar where hot drinks could be prepared, this was located in a separate room to the bedroom.

This is a fantastic hotel The service in the bar, restaurant and breakfast area is second to none. Their menus are extensive and can compete with any 5 star hotels I've stayed in. It's also pet friendly which is important to me and my wife and our dog is always welcomed lovingly. We were greeted on arrival by the lovely... More
