Decided to go on a spontaneous one night break away and picked this hotel. Great value for price, we had afternoon tea which was amazing, late checkout, upgrade to a superior room, use of the leisure centre and breakfast. Staff were more than helpful and always got a smile leaving or coming back. Very clean, 5 minutes from the city... More

We were traveling with a group of 46 from the United States. The hotel is large and has been added on several times. There was a lot of walking for some in our group. There are elevators but still you almost need a map not to take a wrong turn. The room was fine for our one night's stay and... More

There were lots of parties in for Christmas so there was a noise factor but it really didn't stop me from... More

Myself and my brother had a break here during the week for two nights and we found the hotel, staff, location and service there very satisfactory and we would recommend it to others wanting to stay in Galway or anyone with a view to taking a break somewhere in Ireland. Particularly we loved that the hotel's leisure facilities were really... More

Nice modern quiet hotel, up to date facilities. Staff is very pleasant and knowledgeable. Only (minor) drawback is that the hotel is in a residential neighborhood and away from tourist area. (not exactly a bad thing).

Two night B&B stay was quite pleasant. Great staff, average breakfast, spacious rooms nice and quiet but a long walk to reception and leisure centre. No soap or shampoo in changing rooms at pool. Small TV,no bottled water and very average toiletries. Thin blanket on bed and shiny cover,not very comfortable. Good value for 3 star but no more. .

We are disappointed that you were not entirely happy with all facilities. It is not common practice to supply toiletries in leisure club facilities for health and safety reasons. That... More
