I came to Galway for a week for work, and really enjoyed my stay. Being a solo traveller, the only time I spent in the rooms was early morning and evenings which were comfortable and pleasant. The room service and restaurant food were top notch, and really good value for the portion size and quality of the food. The decor... More

Checked into the hotel and was greeted with helpful and very friendly staff. The lounge area is really cosy. The room was a good size and very cosy as well. The best nights sleep I've ever had in a hotel. The breakfast the next morning was delicious and they had a great selection. We will definitely be back the next... More

Checked into this hotel this past weekend. Hotel was trendy, decor was bright. Room appeared to be decent, took a picture I was impressed. Went to lay on the bed and found a long brown hair (I am blond) and a few short brown hairs. If one thing totally turns me off from a place, its hairs in the bed.... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights whilst on our honeymoon in Ireland. We were very pleased with the location of the hotel (it couldn't be more central) and the arrangement with a nearby multi-storey car park where we parked our car for 7 euros a day. The hotel was very clean and newly re-furbished in a modern... More

We loved our stay. The room was very comfortable. Easy walk to the local pubs and dining spots. The hotel did charge us for a wine serving from the room refrigerator which we did not drink but otherwise it was a great value. The breakfast next morning was wonderful and among the best we had while in Ireland. The motif... More

Cute boutique hotel. We stayed here on our honeymoon. Great location, close to everything, but on a quiet street. Rooms were small but comfortable. Breakfast here was great as well. Staff was very friendly.
