I love this hotel! It's not everyone's cup of tea as it's a bit dated and the rooms are small, but seriously it's brilliant. The location is great, about a 10 walk into town. The staff are really nice and friendly. The parking is free. The price is so appealing. I have stayed here plenty of times in the past,... More

Stayed here a good while ago. Rooms are small but got it at a great price so it was ideal for us. It was a last minute booking idea and the rooms were very clean. Would recommend but not if you are looking for something spacious. More of a B and B than a hotel. Staff nice and friendly.

Value for money Bed and Breakfast, comfortable, good breakfast, good pint of Guinness. If you are not too fussy this place is 'grand' as the Irish say. Its a bit old in terms of décor but has a charm of its own nonetheless. The rooms were clean and the pub was cosy with a wood stove, good atmosphere, no trash... More

We stayed here at the end of August - on arrival we asked for a menu and were told that they were not serving food that day! On allocation of rooms we were put at the very top of the building with lots of stairs to climb No sign of a lift. The rooms are very small and shower room/bathroom... More

Stayed in July for a long weekend. Rooms are above a popular bar and have plenty of entertainment at weekends. Whilst the rooms may appear dated they are perfectly functional with all the usual amenities. We particularly liked the bed which was very comfortable, also loads of wardrobes etc for storage. Our room had a small room adjacent with a... More

Stayed here for a night on route to the Aran Islands. Location was great as we could walk to the city and also Salthill. Rooms were small but perfectly formed, although a little dated but we expected this, especially as the price was cheap. bar was well stocked and after we spent the night in Taffes in the city we...

My cousin and I stayed here for one night while visiting Galway and I have to say I was really happy with the accommodations! Yes the building is old (I prefer charming and quaint) and if you are looking for the ritz this is not it. BUT for the price and location it was an amazing deal. The room was... More
