Just finished the annual service managers conference at the Salthill Hotel. The excellence of the staff, location and facilities all combined to turn a good conference into a great one. I cannot recommend the Salthill Hotel too highly.

Had our wedding here. Staff were amazing. Couldn't have asked for a better day. Food was great and they were extremely helpful with people who couldn't eat certain foods. They really made it a day to remember. Location is great as hotel looking out onto sea. Great for pictures.

We spent three nights at the Salthill Hotel in March and were very pleased with the hotel and staff. The food was excellent and the service matched the food. The location right on Galway Bay was a huge plus. Nice and comfortable rooms and added bonus, altogether a very nice experience and I would recommend this hotel highly.

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights from the 26/3/2014 and issues with customer service began at check in. With an empty lobby at 4pm my wife approached reception and was kept waiting while reception staff continued to discuss lets say non-work related issues. When she was eventually addressed and confirmed reservation, the receptionist took a very assumed comfortability... More

My wife and I spent a mid-week break at the Salthill Hotel last week March 26/27-2014. From the moment we walked in the door we were greeted by very friendly staff on the reception. Our room was very spacious on the second floor and spotless. Breakfast was excellent and the dining room staff made us so welcome. The pool/spa area... More

My overall impression of the Salthill Hotel was favourable. I wasn't involved in the booking process, so can't comment on it. Check-in was smooth and when problems arose with the originally assigned meeting room (more about this below), the reception staff rose to the occasion and efficiently sorted things out. I have to acknowledge that my colleagues' late arrival added... More
