As part of a group, I spent 2 nights in this very comfortable hotel, about 10 minutes' drive from the centre of Galway. The food was good. The hotel was very busy, so breakfast was a bit chaotic. At first I was put in a smoker's room - yes, they still exist! - but was immediately moved to a large... More

Stayed one night on business. Staff and service were very good. Room was very good and leisure facilities were good although steam room could do with more steam.Evening meal in bistro was good especially the soup although the fish was just average. Breakfast was excellent. The hotel is like an oasis close to the middle of the city

My wife and I needed a peaceful room. They had upgraded us to a suite by the time we checked in. It was spacious with good blackout curtains. The only thing that distracted us somewhat was the barking of the dog next door. The staff were happily pleasant.

The grounds and main floor of the hotel are very impressive, This is a gorgeous old building. The service was good and the restaurant service and food exceptional. Finding your way to the rooms is challenging, The corridors are strangely laid out. There is only one very small lift, with another that for some reason leads outside to the garden.... More

We stayed here on a 3 night package and we had the dog with us. On arrival there was a slight hiccup over the booking of the dog but this was very quickly resolved.

Stayed here recently for 1 night to meet up with some friends. Its what I would all a "traditional Irish" hotel with good service and good food. The hotel was really busy as there was a wedding on which added to the atmosphere. Fabulous grounds and a great location. Would definetly stay here again.

The hotel was lovely. We stayed two nights. The food was good and the staff were friendly. The people who waited on us in the pub were especially warm and friendly. One negative we experienced was the smell in our bathroom. There was an open space under the sink with exposed pipes. We did not report the smell. We just... More
