Bed was not very comfortable - lumpy and hard. Room was at end of hall and no Internet most of the time. Good in restaurant very generic and not so Irish. Caters to your groups I think. Staff very friendly. Not to close to downtown. About 10 euro ride.

Came here to attend a one-day conference. Decided to bring the whole clan along with me, to chill out and do some work. Was not disappointed. Liked the hotel. Went to a movie in the nearby Eye Cinema. Very convenient. I didn't give it the full five stars for the following reasons: The family room was a little small for... More

The smaller rooms at this can feel a little claustrophobic, however the larger rooms are huge. I have stayed in the apartments on occasion and you really can't go wrong. The staff are brilliant and extremely accommodating. I even got rather oliver twist one evening and dropped a tray of drinks that I was bringing to my room. The hotel... More

This was my least favorite place on our ten day tour of Ireland. We were in the A wing down at the end of the hall, away from the elevators and close to the stairs on the second floor. While the long walk didn't bother us the lack of wi-fi did. We were lucky to get one bar! Of the... More

We stayed for 2 nights. Had a couple of drinks the night we arrived. The bar staff were not friendly at all and we're not at all efficient. Breakfast was of a good standard. The room was nice but the windows don't open, so we felt a bit claustrophobic. The king size bed was 2 singles pushed together. The reception... More

The hotel is very convenient for sight seeing in Galway, without the hassle of driving into or parking. Take the bus (409) into the city for 2.10 Euros each way and change provided by the bus driver. Hotel is very large and desk service was outstanding. Her presentation was outstanding and details of area were extremely helpful. Kudos! Room was... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. My husband was attending a conference here. The hotel has plenty of parking and a nice, casual restaurant. We had dinner here one night and the food was very good, reasonably priced, and served fairly quickly. They serve a very nice full breakfast buffet. Our room was fine. It probably needs some updating, but... More

Myself my partner and our son stayed here for two nights. We had a one bedroom apartment which was fantastic.Bright, large, spotlessly clean and everything we needed a home from home. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Had a small bit of a wait to check in as room was not ready and it is a bit of a walk to... More

Location was great. Only a few minute drive to city centre where we were able to park our car in a car park. We stayed in a two bedroom apartment for four nights. A bit of a walk from reception to the apartments (two separate lifts) but also out of the way and quiet. If your looking for a place... More
