These apartments are desperately in need of refurbishment - burnt kitchen drawers, bodged shower screen repairs, toilet roll holders falling off, coat hangers falling off - there is a general air of neglect. We had no welcome pack and no guide to the apartment. We had to telephone for help on how to heat the water. The location is very good and apartments spacious but totally devoid of character. No pictures on the walls etc - although there clearly has been as marks visible on the bare walls. There is free parking but the car park is disgusting- overflowing bins and rat traps with missing lids. We moved on to an apartment in another part of Ireland after this - significantly better. Equally spacious but welcoming and with a clean car park. Also 100’s of Euro cheaper.

This is the best accommodation I have had whilst travelling. Fantastic cleanliness and very well equipped. The location is great with beautiful view across the bay. The outside of the building doesn’t do it to much justice but step inside the apartment and it’s a whole new world . Everything has been well thought out including having dishwasher tablets to get u started. Bathrooms very clean and have some great shower creams provided. The beds are large and very comfy. Can’t thank these people enough for a wonderful experience we had.

Dear ClaireB5426, Thank you for your honest and well-laid-out feedback it is very valuable to us. We will be happy to explain the issues you have raised. 1. We have a water immersion system in place, that heats up the water during the night, it also allows you to use the "boost" option to reheat the water if you used it during the day to ensure you have hot water for evening showers. All this is outlined in our guest information folder available in each apartment. 2. That is correct, we provide guests with enough product/items such as toilet paper, washing up liquid and tablets, sponge, jay cloth etc. to get them going until they can reach the local shop for extra supplies. Items such as dishwasher tabs, bin bags and toilet rolls can be requested with our staff over the phone. We do not provide multi-use items such as foil or film as a safety measure during COVID-19. Cleaning products are not provided due to H&S risks associated with chemicals. 3. Our check-out time is 10.30 am, not 11 am, hence why our housekeeping knocked on the door. 4. We are located right in the heart of Salthill, unfortunately, this comes with some noise. 5. We are sorry but there is not much we can do in relation to the thickness of the walls, but we rarely get complaints in relation to noise from neighbouring apartments. Thank you so much for all of the positive comments, we will ensure to pass them on to the rest of our team. We hope to have you as our guest again in the nearest future.

I spent three very pleasant nights at the Galway Bay Sea View Apartments. As this was my first time staying in a "holiday" apartment, I wasn't sure what to expect so was pleasantly surprised. The apartment was very basic but quite clean and comfortable with a small kitchen, living room, bedroom, bath and, what I thought was a big plus, a washer/dryer. Also, there was a little balcony overlooking the Salthill Promenade which was a nice place to relax after having spent several days sight seeing around the country. The location is also quite good. It is within easy walking distance to restaurants and convenience stores. I will definitely stay here again.

The place is in a great location and not very far from the square where there's plenty of restaurants, pubs, nightclubs etc. HOWEVER, there was VERY LIMITED hot water!! As a family, across 3 nights we had a total of 3 showers - repeated phone calls and no help at all other than wait an hour or two for the hot water to work!!! Absolutely appalling. I didn't manage to get a hot shower at all because by the time one of us had taken a shower the hot water was used up :( Meaning we'd have to wait again and that would just spoil our holiday. The owner uses a 'booster' which is evidently to reduce his water bills therefore I wouldn't stay again...

Thank you for taking the time to post this review. We are grateful for your feedback. We are sorry to see that our water immersion system did not quite work out for you. Perhaps we were not clear in the instructions, as water can be boosed before the boiler runs out of hot water to ensure a sufficient amount of water. We will review our hot water instructions. We hope you will give our property another chance someday and we will be happy to welcome you back.

Only ever enough hot water for one person to shower and there were four of us! Repeated calls to the manager who talked us thro the booster button and still it didnt work. We are still waiting for maintenance! If you want to have a grungy holiday, this is the place for you. A real pity because its in a beautiful location but totally spoilt by not being able to have a hot shower.

Thank you for your feedback. We are really sorry that there was a maintenance problem with the hot water immersion during your stay. As much as we try to do preventive maintenance an electrical failure can sometimes occur and is out of our control and we are really sorry it happened during your stay. The issue was resolved the same day it was reported to us, but we understand that it did cause an inconvenience. WE hope you will visit us again, as we can assure you we aim to provide an excellent experience to our guests.

We stayed here up until today..I Will start with good things. The place was impeccable your cleaners are a credit to you. The location is excellent some great eating places nearby we had a takeaway lunch in the creamery downstairs and It was fab. The bed was very comfortable. Now to the bad and I can't say I would.or wouldn't go back. The windows need resealed I know salt hill is exposed but not only was it baltic and we had to keep heating on nearly the whole time but the sound of the wind and the hen party in the room below the bedroom.window wasn't as bad but still not great either. The 2nd bedroom was so cold because it joins onto outdoor corridor and the noise booming up the corridor. The whole point of booking a two bedroom apartment was so the toddler could sleep in his own room.and we all ended up have 3 sleepless nights due to being cold and the constant wind. It's a real pity because its a great apartment I just Don't know if I would stay again maybe in a less windy season but then u would hear tourists. Room 22 without a doubt needs repaired at the windows

Stayed Here last week as part of Group booking for The All Ireland Mixed Hockey Intervarsity in Galway! From the moment you open the door to your apartment you know your in a Great Place. Two Bedrooms in each apartment along with self catering kitchen and washing facilities. Two of our apartments included a Penthouse balcony and let me tell you I could get use to waking up to that view of Salthill everyday. My Group absolutely loved the stay and can't wait for our next tournament in Galway! There's only one place we're staying! I'd like to also send a Huge thanks to Both Karina and Oisin who were great help in arranging the accommodation for us and always at the end of the phone if I had any queries!

The apartments are spotlessly clean, very comfortable and have everything you might need. Excellent location with parking. Easy check in and check out. Only issue being check in is late 4pm and check out is very early at 10.30. This is the only reason I would not stay here again.

Amazing What a stunning place to stay. The views over the bay are delightful, especially watching the sunrise. The apartment very clean, modern and accommodating with everything you might need. We stayed for a week but could easily have stayed much longer. Located a short journey (10mins by bus or 30min walk) fro Galway centre. The longer walk along the coast into Galway is beautiful. Highly recommend.
