Stayed here while on short trip to Galway and found staff extremely helpful. Ideally located just off Eyre Square, and near to restaurants and bars. Our room was very large and the residents bar was old-world style and quite relaxing. Full Irish breakfast in the morning (which was excellent) set me up for the day. Would have no hesitation in...

I was very skeptical based on some of the other reviews, but pleasantly surprised once settled in at the Victoria. Room 306 is great - corner room with lots of windows and hot water 24/7. Clean - yes, big - yes. There was a stag party going on on a Saturday night and they were all a hoot to talk... More

Walking to this place from the train station at night was a little off-putting. The neon sign outside seemed ominous, as did the extremely strong artificial smells coming from the candles all over the lobby. And strangest of all, we were required to pay for our full stay before we even got to see the room. Nonetheless, we'd booked a... More

Stated in the Victoria Hotel on a few different occasions. Every time we were met with friendly helpful staff, The hotel is old but in a great location and they don't rip off their customers. Breakfast is tasty and great staff serving too. we also had dinner and it too was lovely. Just love this hotel all round Mary. Mayo

We stayed for three nights B&B from 26th Sept. and really enjoyed it. We had a large,bright, clean room overlooking the hotel entrance. The food was fine but the really strong point was the staff. From reception to dining room, bar and cleaning staff everybody was warm, friendly and helpful. Paddy the barman from Donegal was most welcoming and humourous.... More

The hotel is quite dated, the inside is quite dark but the location is super. right next to eyre square, very close to the bus and rail stations. There's no parking in the hotel but there's a reasonable priced car park close by. Its quite cheap to stay here, it would be ideal for stags/hens. The rooms are pretty average.... More
