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

My partner and I stayed at this hotel for one night during a recent visit to Galway. Yes the hotel is old, this is reflected in hallways and furnishing. However they are making great attempts at modernising the rooms. Our room was located at the back of the hotel. It was small but had new wardrobes, a flat screen TV,... More

The first we were given couldn't be opened and the 2nd room had no hot water, heating and the curtains didn't close properly. There was a smell of stale smoke throughout the building. The bathroom was dirty.

I stayed at Wards Hotel with 3 other people; two of whom had never been to Wards. Again, I was happy with my stay, with the food, with the pub and the entire friendly and efficient staff. I made all of the arrangements with instructions form the rest of my party that they are all 'watching it' (meaning their money)... More

Paid 50 euro to stay here during the Galway races when hotels are hard to find, particular cheap deals. 50 euro well spent I have to say. I don't believe in complaining about a place if it is the cheapest deal in town. Yes the rooms are basic, yes the toilets are the size of wardrobes, yes the wifi didn't... More
