We recently stayed at the galtres lodge and unfortunately we were very disappointed. When we walked in I was surprised to see there was no reception, you were straight into the restaurant area where staff was carrying meals to and fro. We arrived 30 minutes before check in and asked if they had a room we could leave our luggage...

I want to start with positives because I would like this review to be classed as constructive criticism. The location is fab and if you are at the front you may experience some noise, but you'd expect that. The staff are amazing and extremely attentive and helpful. The rooms are really clean but... We booked a superior room and that...

The hotel was in a central location so we decided to see if they had any rooms. The staff were very friendly and helpful, they said they had a 'superior' double room, which was £117 per night including breakfast. The room was number 4, located at the front of the hotel. Unfortunately we didn't get much sleep as it was...

Galtres lodge hotel is a guest house charging premium hotel prices. The nearby Shambles take their name from this hotels plumbing. We were put in room 12 in the attic. This room would give a hobbit claustrophobia. No windows, no room for a stool and intermittent hot water. Apparently there is a pressure problem with the boiler so the roof-space...

First the good points - Location excellent right in the heart of town Good breakfast Now the bad We had room 15 on third floor. The bathroom was the smallest bathroom I've ever seen.
