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

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

Stayed here for two nights whilst on a bus tour of Ireland. A bit out of the centre of Galway but centre only a bus ride away. Clean smart hotel friendly staff and food not bad. Pool looked good but did not have time for a swim.

Hotel looks very nice from the out side, rooms average, but the bed very comfortable, clean, staff pleasant and help full. Breakfast was average, busy place, a few bus tours staying there and a few hens parties. It was not luxury.
