We enjoyed our stay, though cleaning of the rooms was not top notch (e.g. dust on tables, mildew on grouting in bathroom), and some carpets were dirty and some paint was peeling away. The hotel needs more investment to bring all areas up to modern standards. There was plenty of parking, and free wifi in the rooms, though you had... More

Check-in was quick and efficient. The room was large with a double and single bed, plenty of power points and was clean and tidy. there were only lamps and no overhead lighting for those who like to read before going to sleep.

This is a very large hotel complex on the outskirts of Galway. The room was very nice , modern and everything you would need. Lots of coach tours stay here so very busy and bar restaurant area is vast and confusing. However the bar and waiting staff were very efficient. The bar staff work exceptionally hard and long hours but... More

I stayed in the two bed apartment and it was fab :) Very spacious. Highly recommend it. I stayed there with my partner and another couple. Food was fab. Lively bar on Saturday night. Kids still in the bar at 11.30pm so grand for people with families. 5 min drive from Eyre Square

Was booked into this hotel as a group, when arrived and tried to get keys was grumpily informed that the operator should have collected the keys and distributed them. Stayed for two nights using the table de note menu, on both nights service was slow as insufficient staff allocated to the group. The desert course was exactly the same for... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in August 2014. The rooms are quite large and in good condition. They are quiet as well. Set a 3 storey huge maze building means long walks. There's 2 lifts here but each one only does a single floor at a time. You guessed it [my drift] the lifts are at least 100 meters apart... More

Great facilities especially considering the star rating. Is as good as many hotels a star higher. Night manager James,I think is, a top man also. Would... More

I was there with my husband for a weekend and the service that we got was very poor for a 4 Star Hotel. The facilities were really good, however the service wasn't. I got the impression that the employees weren't happy to work there and that was reflected in their service.The people in the reception didn't seem to be happy... More
