I am just back from a two night stay at the house hotel. It is a lovely intimate hotel. Staff were very friendly and accommodating throughout the stay. Nothing was an issue. The service was just very friendly, down to earth service which I like. Very well selected and trained staff work here from reservations to reception to bar and... More

No parking at the hotel and difficult to find spaces at the nearby parking garage. Was overcharged by 40 euro on check in. Fan in bathroom droned on all night long, so bad in fact that my friends next door had to change rooms at 2 30am! (don't take a room on the 3rd floor). Very close to city centre... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. Due to being located in the heart of the city centre we do not have our own car park however we do have an arrangement with nearby Hynes Yard multi storey car park. We also have a cordoned off set-down area outside the hotel to facilitate arrival and luggage drop off. We apologise... More

I was very disappointed in this hotel heard great things about it. The staff were very friendly and efficient but the food was not up to scratch. The hotel itself could do with a makeover would not return.

Enjoyed recent visit. A couple of drinks plus lunch on a relaxed afternoon. Atmosphere and service were excellent. Food a bit underwhelming - maybe just an off day? Will be back though but will expect food to pick up... Enjoyable location for a relaxed time with paper and couple of glasses of wine.

This is a lovely boutique hotel - bright, modern decor and spotlessly clean in all areas. Also very convenient for Galway's vibrant Latin Quarter with its wide choice of restaurants, pubs and bars. We stayed for two nights and took advantage of an upgrade offer. I have to say that the Super Deluxe room was one of the best I... More

My wife and I spent 2 nights here recently. We arrived at the hotel very early on a weekday (7:30 AM) from an overnight flight to Shannon from Boston. We were both exhausted, as we don't sleep particularly well on red-eye flights. The front desk clerk, Marta, was really fantastic and managed to get us our room by 10:30am so... More
