Stayed two nights here on summer vacation to Galway. Rented two rooms for our party of 5. Spacious living area was a bonus for relaxing after driving and sightseeing all day. Kitchenette was perfect for preparing late night snacks since everything closes early in Ireland compared to the states. Hotel has a bustling gym, pool and bar scene. Didn't have... More

We stopped in a self-catering apartment. It consisted of a separate bedroom with a double and a single bed and another room of the same size that was the kitchen and the sitting room. The facilities in the kitchen were perfect for what we needed, a fridge, oven and a dishwasher. There was a small supermarket nearby so it was... More

This is the worst hotel I ever stayed in, we were told they don't take dinner bookings for (leisure guests) that's anyone that's not part of a bus tour group. We could wait for first available table, that was at 6.30. At 8.50 we were still waiting for our main course , we gave up at that stage. Only positive... More

Our room was on the ground floor looking out into the car park which made me feel quite uncomfortable. The hotel was VERY busy, and there were children running all over. The bar was packed but there was a good atmosphere in here. It's quite a large hotel, there is quite a bit of walking to do before you reach... More

I received a very friendly welcome from the reception desk right through my stay. My room was very comfortable and clean. Wifi was a bit dodgy for part of my stay. As a business guest I received a little goodie bag and an invite to a complimentary drink. I was also invited to receive a loyalty card. Breakfast was self-serviche,... More

Having read some recent reviews I'm not sure what happened, but I had a great stay here and would recommend it to anyone. I found the staff exceptionally helpful on a recent stay here and having stayed in a number of Galway hotels I really enjoyed my stay. The staff on reception couldn't have been more helpful. I felt there... More

Staff very friendly. When we got to our room we had one handicapped room we didn't ask for that and we had book a few months in advance. They said they were full and couldn't give us another room, said they would change us rooms the next day. No follow up from hotel on that they didn't contact us to... More

As most will say, this place is huge! We heard a guest saying it took 3 different elevators to get to his room. We got lucky and were close to the front desk. Another complaint we saw a lot of, terrible mattresses. They're old and saggy and need to be replaced. The room was clean though. The hotel restaurant and... More
