I stayed here for 1 night in a twin room (163). I can't fault the place, a really friendly welcome, a clean, lovely room (it was massive too!) and by bed was so comfortable I skipped breakfast to lie in for a few extra hours! It's on the bus route too, 30 mins into town so bear that in mind... More

It is a very large, modern hotel in Galway. True - It is far from the lovely city center but it has its own advantages. Big rooms, nice food, good service, large parking lot. close to shopping center - very comfortable.
