This hotel is in a great location. Friendly welcome. Bar underneath the hotel is very busy and a good atmosphere. Live music too. Surprisingly well soundproof for the rooms above. We stayed in room 8 which overlooked the road...very noisy from the street. Shower was fairly terrible but just about useable as very low pressure. No fan or air con... More

We choose this hotel for location and prize and were not disappointed. Our room was comfy and clean and the bathroom was adequate. Staff were always friendly and the pub downstairs was great for a nightcap. Lots of shops and restaurants around and the beautiful promenade to walk on. Also so close to the show Trad on the Prom.

The Holiday Hotel is located in the Salthill district of Galway....under a block away from the beautiful coast line! To get to the city center it is a 30 minute walk...which was less than ideal...but since it was such a beautiful walk, we didn't mind. The hotel staff were very non-existent...we only saw them upon check in. The room perfectly... More

The rooms were a bit dated, but were clean and for a nights stay were ideal. Bed was comfortable, 2 pillows provided per person, ample towels etc. Prior to our stay... More

Seen some negative reveiws about this hotel. I found well worth the money we paid, which was fifty euro for two adults and one child. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean with fresh bedding. Even though there was a pub underneath, never heard any noise. Only issue we had the water pressure in the shower... More

Beautiful location, great bed, clean and quiet (even tho it's above a pub) what more do you want? Very friendly staff on check in. Nice restaurants and shops all around. We would definitely be back! Highly recommended for such a reasonable price

Very nice hotel and rooms. It was overall clean and we even had our towels changed during our short 2night-stay. Free parking spots nearby. About a 25 min walk to city centre - but that's totally fine b/c you walk down the beautiful ocean road. Supermarket and restaurants right on the other side of the road. Only the bathroom was...

i stayed at this hotel on Wed 26th August. It wasnt a pre-booked room but we were pleasantly surpised. The rooms were clean, well presented and fairly big for the 2star rating this Hotel has. The en suite was not big but adequate. There was plenty of tea/coffee/biscuits. There was even a hairdryer and toiletries. The beds were comfortable and... More
