We spent two nights at this hotel as part of a CIE tour. We had a double room -- one queen size bed; the other was a twin. Like most hotels in Ireland, the hair dryer is in the bedroom and does not easily lend itself to effectively blowing your hair dry. We enjoyed a very hearty and delicious breakfast... More

Couldn't get any of my usual Galway hotels & hadn't heard about this place but what a great find. I'll definitely be using this hotel again. Everything from check in to check out was excellent. Only one fault, I would expect an hotel of this standard to have a couple of bottles of complimentary water in the bedrooms, especially this... More

Great venue for a family wedding. The staff were extremely helpful and couldn't do enough to help. The food was amazing and I couldn't fault the hotel at all. I would definitely recommend it as a venue for a wedding or just for a meal in the bar / restaurant. We had two very young children with us and the... More

Very nice hotel and stay. They were more than accommodating and fortunately had a room available for us to check in early after 15 hours of traveling. It's about a 35 minute walk to the hotel from the City Centre which we didn't realize. There are buses that run regularly, however the walk isn't terrible if you're up to it.... More

lovely hotel and helpful staff however after a four hour journey it was annoying not to get a parking space in the hotel even though I had confirmation that I would.

We had our wedding here on 30th May 2015 and we were absolutely delighted with all aspects of the hotel and service. From booking our wedding over 2 years ago, there was a change of management which bothered us a little but it need not have as everything was dealt with in such a professional and thorough manner. The food... More

The hotel it's self was lovely, we got a nice big room! The only problem was the music at late night which made it hard to sleep. But apart from that was a nice hotel. It was clean and offered everything you would need when staying at a hotel, if your in the area worth a visit.

I stayed here with a group of friends. The hotel is comfortable and well decorated. The rooms were spacious and well laid out . Friendly staff and good food, for a reasonable price. We stayed on a Friday night and there was live music and a great atmosphere in the bar. I'd definitely stay here again.
