Stayed for 2 nights in August- hotel was in a great location but wouldnt return. On 1st day entering room there was a strong smell in the room of drainage pipes. We alerted management who came up to check. We were offered a change of room & reduced rate & given complimentary drinks. If you are going to use it... More

The room had outdated and the furniture was beat up. The bed covers were skippy and red bed skirt and cover were nasty and stained. Kept shoes or socks on so we didn't... More

This hotel needs a refurbishment. The foyer looks faded and in need of attention. The rooms are clean and the staff are really helpful. However the bar was good and the location was excellent. The free wifi only worked in the lobby.

The location for Galway could not be bettered. Everything else about the hotel was just a bit below average. Room was not that clean, breakfast was ordinary, service was nothing special, but I had a great time in Galway so I give it an extra star.

The hotel was very central. The room was basic but had all you needed in it. Very clean and towels changed everyday. Breakfast was very good and staff were all lovely and friendly. No problem staying here again. For a central hotel in Galway the price was grand.

Did you ever walk into a hotel and want to walk right back out again?? Christ , this place is just a hostel that just happens to like charging hotel rates. Do yourselves a favour and only stay here if every hostel,homeless shelter and bus shelter is full. It's scandalous that the owners of this place have the nerve to... More

The location was great, but the room was a little outdated. We had an inside room and it was very warm and the windows opened to a tiny inside courtyard so there was no way to get any air into the room. The breakfast was good and the staff was very friendly.

Spent two nights here & the location is great to the city center. The staff were very friendly & the service in the bar area was great. It did appear to be a haven for hen parties as there were at least three the two nights we were here.

Despite a great central location and friendly staff this hotel is stuck in the 80s. A horrible, dank, dusty hotel. The rooms are disgusting, not clean, chips off all the furniture, the pillow cases werent ironed, stains on the carpets, no mini bar, 3 in a room and only 1 towel. Im embarrassed for the tourists that stay here
