The location is just 10 minute walk from the city centre and only a 2 minute walk from a lovely sandy beach. The bed was comfy. The breakfast was not very good. There was no hot water for a shower in the morning. Take your shower before breakfast if staying here. It appears that the hot water tank is not... More

Comfortable B&B in Salthill, Galway. The rooms are a bit old and chilly but clean and the beds comfy. Great view. Free wifi in room. Good full irish breakfast (not included in the room price) and free coffee and tea. The city centre is accessible by a nice 15 min walk by the sea front. The owners are kind and... More

Great little place to stay for young travellers who want something cheap and comfortable. It has a great location in the middle of town and opposite the water. If you are not really fussed about having a basic room stay here.

I read other reviews on here about this place and became worried that The White House would be a sub standard B&B. This was simply untrue. Rooms were clean with a fresh supply of towels everyday. Lovely location on the coast for coastal walks, yet a short walk into town (10-15 minutes). Only saw staff when I was checking in... More

The rooms in this B&B are old, outdated, musty and not the cleanest. All the noise in the corridors echoes into every other room. I had one of the worst nights sleep I've ever had. The bathroom was ridiculously tiny. It is a 10 minute walk into town. If you're on a budget and don't mind roughing it, then this... More

Everybody who is complaining about this place- you got what you paid for! This place is the perfect B & B for young travelers or for people on a budget in general. It has recently been bought out by a young couple and they do a wonderful job running the place. The staff was extremely helpful and kind, and as... More

Stayed here for 2 nights it's my daughter. We had a ground floor twin room.,the beds were comfy and there was a lot of room but the bathroom could use an update. Everything always felt damp there was not enough ventilation in the bathroom so it had a damp musty smell. The owners were friendly and breakfast was hearty. The... More

Grotty room, cheap lumpy bed with dirty divan base. Tiny shower. The whole place needs a major overhaul. Feel ripped off, definitely paying for location in this place but unless you have no other option, don't stay here!
