The House Hotel is a lovely boutique hotel in Galway City.
Very close to the main shopping street and Eyre Square. Parking is not on site but in a garage 5 minutes walk away and was €7 for 24 hours.
The rooms are nicely decorated, some with balconies with obstructed views of the harbour.
The staff were helpful and I experienced no issues with service. Breakfast was included in the rate and was okay, what you'd expect with a good selection.
The restaurant doesn't have a great selection on the menu so we didn't dine there so cant comment on the quality.
The location is great, just around the corner from Shop Street and near plenty of bars and restaurants.
Salthill beach is only a 5 minute drive away too.
The rooms are nicely decorated, the beds are comfy and our double room had probably a king bed or a really big double, not two singles pushed together! But the pillows, like most hotels, are pretty hard and difficult to sleep on.
The A/C / heating doesn't go below 17 degrees and I found the room very hot and stuffy which made it uncomfortable to sleep although I have stayed here twice in two separate rooms and only experienced this on the second stay.
Noise from the corridor is very loud but it wasn't an issue as we had quiet neighbours, but you can clearly hear people's conversations and doors slamming, during a busy period this could be a nuisance.
Traffic noise was also very loud when it passed but thankfully it seemed to be a quiet street.
It is not the cheapest hotel in the area but based on reviews of other hotels seems like a good option as others are more basic.
There was not a great selection of TV channels.
Galway is a lovely city and well worth the trip and although the hotel isn't perfect it is nice and clean and I will more than likely stay again
