Myself and my friends have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Galway Bay Hotel, and I have to say, we were all impressed by the courteousness and helpfulness of pretty much every member of staff, both on reception, dining area and bar.
Ok, decor may be a little dated, but personally I liked that, as it reflects a warmth about the place, which other hotels can lack.
The rooms were great, lots of space and fabulous comfy beds. Bathrooms have bath and shower combo, and spacious vanity area for all ones bits and pieces.
It was busy during our stay, with wedding parties etc, but this did not deter our enjoyment, and I have never enjoyed such a lovely atmosphere amongst staff and guests alike.
Breakfasts were fine with plenty to choose from, and staff always on hand to top up the tea and coffee pots !
On our final evening we ordered 5 sirloin steaks with various trimmings and sauces, and despite a wait of some 60 mins or so, every one of us enjoyed a very well cooked and well presented plate of food ! Well done to the chefs !
All in all, we think the Galway Bay Hotel has got it spot on !! Well done and thank you :)
