This is a lovely hotel, in a great location - close enough to the nightlife to walk, but far enough away to avoid the noise. The rooms were roomy, clean & mine had a small balcony, which was lovely. The bathroom was perfect - large and roomy. The staff was very, very nice--especially when I lost my car keys the... More

Made a reservation at the end of June to stay in September. Was told by a friend that the hotel had flooding problems and therefore I should make contact. I contacted them earlier and was advised that the hotel would not be open in time for my booking. How long does it take to advise your guests? Hotel problems started... More

Unfortunately this hotel has been flooded and won't be open in July. We turned up having been told nothing by our agents to find the hotel was shut. The owners of the hotel could not of been more helpful and rang around other Galway hotels to accommodate us. Hope it gets dry soon! D Moore

The location was great and very close to the bus station and the bus to the Aran islands. The room was spacious and clean. The staff were very attentive. Breakfast was awesome and there was also a buffet. Also a family orientated hotel. This is a great place to stay and very reasonable.

Our rooms weren't ready but she managed to switch something around and we checked in immediately. The restaurant seemed like the outside but it... More
