I have emailed our complaint twice to the hotel manager but I have not received any reply so hence my review here. We recently stayed two nights at Westwood House Hotel (august 2014) Upon arrival we were greeted by a really nice receptionist. She was very welcoming, courteous and gave a great first impression of the hotel. Our room was... More

We had three nights at this hotel. Overall pretty good free parking good location nice and quiet. Could not get wifi to work in our room. Reception a bit standoffish. Dirty kettle in room but otherwise very good nice cotton bed linen. Breakfast was good but no gluten free cereal which in 2014 is not acceptable. Also no fresh fruit... More

It is a very nice hotel, not so centrally located but with nice comfortable rooms & friendly and helpful staff. The breakfast and dinner for 2 nights we stayed were good in quantity and quality in a nice private room for our group. The style of the hotel is rather Victorian? and our friends liked it very much. There is... More

Mom, Dad and three young children had a great time staying in this hotel. Reception was top class and a great help with advice. Great little treats for the kids in the package that we choose. Really made our holiday. Yum Yum, cookies before bed :)

After tiny hotel rooms in England the entry into our room at the Westwood House Hotel was a welcome sight, indeed. A large, spacious, spotlessly clean room with a large bathroom and everything we could want in a hotel. Our three-day visit included an in-house wedding, so we enjoyed both the accommodation and also the functions side of the hotel.... More

Another fantastic find by my partner, truly great hotel, freindly helpful staff (especially Katriona breakfast supervisor...she should be on stage!) Very clean, large comfy rooms, would loved to have stayed longer, if we ever visit Galway again we'll be booking straight into here!

Stayed here for one night and wished it was longer. The young lady on reception was very efficient and welcoming, as were all the staff we met during our stay! Room was immaculate and breakfast was brilliant and Catriona (breakfast supervisor) was great craic and really looked after us without fault. A must stay for anyone wanting a top class... More

Stayed here while visiting our daughter residing in Corrib Village. Perfect location to be within walking distance of the University. Nice pub, decent breakfast. Our room suited our needs perfectly. I disagree with reviewer who complained of noise during a wedding weekend - a wedding occurred during our visit, and we didn't hear a peep. Maybe it depends on where... More

Hotel has nice rooms but old fashioned toilets are noisy. Took a shower late and tried to dry my hair but the wall unit didn't work. So I tried to call reception to report the problem. But the phone didn't work either. 3 phones in the room but none of them worked. For the cost of the room at least... More
