This hotel was perfect for our needs, when going to a friend's wedding in Galway. Okay, the rooms are small and simple, but the hotel is good value for Galway. The staff were very friendly and welcoming to quite a large group of wedding guests, and the hotel has a great bar that serves fantastic Guinness well into the night.... More

Stayed here for one night while touring the west of Ireland. The room was tired and shabby. The bedding didn't fit the bed and the mattress was starting to unthread. The best was yet to come, when I went to use the ensuite bathroom, I was hit with the smell of stale urine. It was overpowering and sickening. I couldn't... More

good small hotel with a bar on the ground floor; parking is at the back and the location is very convenient to Galway city centre; easy enough to find by following the signs for Salthill as you approach Galway

Paid 55 Euro for a double room which included breakfast. Rooms are located above a pub which could get a bit noisy towards pub closing time. Room was clean, bed comfortable, bathroom clean with plenty of hot water and a very powerful shower. Enjoyed a good full breakfast in the morning which was served briskly. Overall a good bargain hotel... More

Stayed here for one night for the Connemara marathon. Had to leave early so didn't get to sample breakfast. Hotel is a little old-fashioned but the room had everything needed. Location is very good as only a short walk into town or to Salthill.

This hotel is above a pub in Lower Salthill. Its pretty basic and small but room was clean, central and very reasonable - €45 for a single room. I was at the Spanish Arch after only 10mins walking so great location. Missed breakfast so can't comment. Not for people who hit to bed early but can't fault the place.

The location is in a quiet residential area with only about a 5 minute walk to the beach and 5-10 minute walk to the city centre. The room was small but comfortable and very clean. The bed was actually comfortable, unlike most of the concrete slab type mattresses you find in Irish lodgings. They also had top (flat) sheets on... More
