Me and my boyfriend stayed here last weekend for a wedding. We arrived late on Thursday night, checked in, which was fast enough by a lovely Melbourne guy and were sent on our merry way to find our room. After about a mile of corridor we eventually found our room (bit of an exaggeration but a very long walk away... More

There was a time five or even 10 years ago when you mentioned the name ' Ardialaun Hotel' in Taylor's Hill in Galway that one understood what you meant. It was an upmarket refined hotel set in an exclusive location in Salthill in Galway. Sadly gone are those days, I concluded following a two night stay at the hotel on... More

We were given a room on the top floor, overlooking the back delivery area. That sounds worse than it was. Sitting on the bed, all we saw were trees but at night, when we opened the window (it was quite hot when we were there) we could here trash being taken out and employees leaving. The room was not very... More

Recently attended a family wedding at the Ardilaun and stayed in the hotel for the weekend. Cannot praise it highly enough. The staff, food and overall surroundings were all excellent. The welcome of the staff, particularly Maureen, Wedding Coordinator, was superb. I would highly recommend it as a venue for any occasion.

The Bistro at the Ardilaun Hotel was a major DISAPPOINTMENT. My husband and I both ordered the fish and chips. The FISH WAS NOT FRESH. It was definitely frozen fish. Not the traditional fish. The three pieces were more like frozen fish sticks. Another person in our party ordered the beef special. He said it was 'okay'. Not the quality... More

Food was excellent, stuffed supreme of chicken as was breakfast the following morning. Restaurant Manager was a thorough professional!

Yes, it was very busy and the staff were all very eager to help, but that really doesn't excuse the state of the bathroom. It was really very run down and dirty in all the corners, as was the rest of the room. The windows were not clean, either inside or out. They were fully booked, so no chance of... More

First, I'd like to point out the reception staff, especially Bernice, are very efficient, professional and wonderful. The food in the Bistro was excellent, and it was much appreciated it was arranged to get us something to eat after we arrived late after a long day's drive. My only criticism of this lovely hotel is the rooms were a little... More

Stuffy and airless cramped room with an horrendous view of rooftop, outdated decor - definitely paid far too much, lacking value for money. Took so long to get any service in the bistro/bar downstairs that we went out. I do not recommend this hotel to anyone.
