We booked a family room, on arrival we were given our keys but were not told that the family room is in a different part of the hotel, so we lugged all our lugggage with three children in tow up to the fourth floor and just couldn' find the room only to...

Please please be sure that my criticism of this hotel is not of the staff who were friendly and helpful. Food for breakfast was very good quality, a little slow due to numbers of holidaymakers all at the same time but good experience. We also had food in the bar which was good. We were given a present of a... More

I was traveling on business and I arrived on a school formal night and the reception was full of teenagers and was so noisy that I could barely hear the receptionist speaking. However the party-goers soon went and quietness returned. I dined in the hotel restaurant "Prom" and had a wonderful meal. It was served quickly and the staff were... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. The location is perfect and only a short bus ride into Galway City. It is just up from the main street in salthill, which is great, as you are away from the take aways & pubs etc. U have two parks beside you, so it is a bit more peaceful & quiet. Underground carpark is... More

Stayed here for the second time. Rooms are very large, quiet and clean and ours had seaview. Location is great on Salthill Promenade which is a 20 min walk from the city center. Staff is friendly and breakfast was buffet style. Very recommended.

Easy parking below the hotel. Nice spa facilities. Friendly staff. Great location to enjoy the prom. Nice food at breakfast. There were notices in the spa/pool area to wear overshoe protectors - no-one does. I wrote my name in the dust on the bedroom furniture. Didn't bother complaining only there one night and don't expect to waste precious time reporting... More

We recently stayed at The Salthill hotel in a family room which for the money was a bit of a let down.. The roman blinds had damp patches which is off putting and the view was nothing only roof tops couldn't really open windows very well... There was a wedding party in the hotel when we arrived which was right... More

We stayed in a sea view room and sitting looking out over the bay was spectacular. Our break included breakfast and dinner on one night and that meal was really good quality and the restaurant staff very friendly. We were traveling around Ireland and this was one of the best breakfasts we had with good quality ingredients. Although travelling by... More

It... More
