We stayed one night in a triple room. Everything was spotlessly clean, although the decor is starting to look a little outdated and worn, though this was not really an issue. It's a busy hotel with lots going on and lots of kids about the place giving a family friendly feel. The beds were comfortable and the room we had... More

I was getting married in a church down the road and booked this hotel to get ready in. The room was perfect and had a separate sitting room which worked out great. The staff were so helpful too. We would highly recommend this hotel for a trip to Galway - esp for families.

This is a brilliant hotel for a family with kids. We stayed in a spacious and clean one bed suite which was great. The staff did their best to help us in any way they could. The only thing that really bothered us is that there was a really funny smell in the reception area/lobby for the full two days... More

We stayed at this hotel recently. We got an excellent last min special offer of 20.15 pp room only..Room was spotless..However the room was very cold and I couldnt find anywhere to turn on or up the heat...we had drinks and lunch in the bar which was also lovely and the service was very good. Reception staff were very friendly.
