I had my hen party in this hotel last weekend. From the minute we arrived we were so well looked after, everything was perfect. All of the staff that we met from when we arrived to when we left were so pleasant although I do have to give a special mention to Sean who looked after us so well and... More

Really good value, excellent breakfast. Room was nice size and spotlessly clean. Great location on the quayside. Staff very friendly and helpful. Only slight issue was that air con was a bit loud. Otherwise a great stay.

Had a great weekend in Galway at the food festival, my brother john used to work here and when we were coming to Galway he said this was the ideal place to stay and it was. Lovely decor and the staff were top notch, definitely not the last time we stay at this hotel.

The hotel is very well placed for Shop Street in Galway. Very nice hotel interior, the room was very clean and well sized (214), comfy bed and a good warm shower. Breakfast was very good, nice spread and a good selection of cooked food. Coffee could have been better.
