This was our first time staying at a B & B so we were not sure what to expect. We found it to be very nice and clean. The Inn Keeper, Debra was as sweet and accommodating as she could be. The breakfast was outstanding! Our only complaint was having to use the small pool next door.

We were lucky to get this room during the Galway races and ladies night. Pricey but clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were great and the staff friendly and welcoming and great with directions! Great location about a 10-15 minute walk into the centre. Ample parking and free wifi.

Very impressed by the professionalism of the staff and the standards of this B7B, they went the extra mile in everything as far as we were concerned. The room was spacious and clean, the bed was very comfortable after a days driving it was wondeful, good shower - so important and it was a big shower! Breakfast was a winner,... More

I think the title says it all. The water in the tiny bathroom was too cold to have a proper wash. The bedroom itself was very cramped and small and made us feel claustrophobic. The service of the staff left a lot to be desired. It was not worth the money and we were left disappointed by the whole experience

An awful experience from start to finish. We were dealt with very rudely upon arrival, then went up to our pokey room where literally every noise could be heard from next door and we were worried that we'd inadvertently been given a room that had already been given to a family of spiders! A terrible night's sleep in a hostel... More

We stayed in Desota a few weeks ago and we are still not over the experience. Initially we thought the rooms were just small but to add insult to injury they were not cleaned. We found a used contraceptive in the bed and as it was too late to find alternative accommodation we spent most of the night awake in... More

Straightforward no frills B&B. Great for its class. The rooms were clean and well maintained. The entire B&B is quite small but the rooms are well setup. Bathroom is clean, but quite small, nothing too serious though.Good full Irish breakfast, which is cooked fresh apparently. Really friendly service and great hosts. Great price and excellent value for money. In a... More

This is a pretty modest establishment. Thin on ambiance and character. Surroundings rather drab. Despite its proximity to the city centre I would consider it overpriced, especially for low season. My stay - and sleep - were seriously impacted by the intrusive scent of a well-known brand of carpet cleaner in the room. Left with a raw throat and sore... More

Yes, the rooms are small. Yes, the bathroom I had was so tiny that it was a miracle of engineering. But it felt like Europe, not a corporate brand. The hosts were kind and gentle and I appreciated that they'd structured breakfast to allow privacy for those who prefer it. The price did seem a bit high (though not extreme).... More
