My Welsh wife and I were in Galway and stayed at a mediocre hotel near the "Garvey" which is in the center of town. Later the following day, we saw a sign outside the Garvey that indicated Bed & Breakfast for some amount I don't recall now. Anyhow, we asked to see a room and were likely shown the best one in the place as the room we were assigned was far less tidy and had a few problems we'd later discover such as not being able to shut-off the water flow to the shower, and having to use the elevator because the stairwell was clogged with junk and the first floor door to the stairwell was locked; likely in attempt to prevent theft of the junk. When we went to check out the following day, we found that the bill was far more than expected. Sparing the details involving this issue, we refused to pay a cent more than what we were quoted. However, we had to make a few threats such as involving the Galway Fire Department should they continue to demand the unreasonable and misleading rate. Staying at the Garvey really ruined to mood of the day.
