We enjoyed a memorable stay at Amber heights last year, taking our lead from tripadvisor reviews, we booked up and drove down from Belfast for a two night stay.
The Guesthouse is easy to find and well situated, the beach was about a 10 minute walk away. The room was spacious, spotlessly clean and reasonably tastefully decorated, definitely not tired but not quite cutting edge modern either.
The service during our stay was very affable and attentive, it made the say all the more enjoyable and chilled. The complimentary, ever ready coffee machine was an added bonus and the buffet breakfast was essentially all you could eat which set us up beautifully for the day - in particular for our blustery walk round the coast into Galway City.
On the downside the walls upstairs in the rooms afforded just a bit too much intrusive interaction with the other guests for our tastes, so when there was a drunken row one night. We noted the fact that the management didn't actually reside at the guesthouse and thus were not readily on call to diffuse the incident (Which continued for some time). Still disputes do happen, it is what it is.
Overall, we had a nice stay here. It was memorable and pleasant and suited our needs perfectly, we would go back. For a Guesthouse it was great and we recommend Amber Heights to others looking an affordable, adequate and affable venue to visit Salthill and Galway.
