Amber Heights Guesthouse
Ranked #75 of 189 Galway B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 18, 2012

Very small bathroom and the room did not seem very clean. The place is a little far from the city so you'll definitely need a car to get anywhere. We didn't order the breakfast, so we can't comment on the food.

We stayed in the two bedroom self catering unit out the back and it was great for us. SO nice to be able to cook your own meal after eating out most of the time.

TV is huge in lounge room and smaller ones in both bedrooms.

Nice way to spend a quiet night in and beach is 15min walk away

You will not find kinder, more hospitable hosts in all of Galway than the ones at Amber Heights. We were waiting on our lost luggage to arrive. He offered his personal cell phone for us to use to call the airport, and then at one point he even called the Dublin airport baggage claim for us and spoke on our behalf. This was the morning of our checkout, and when it looked like we might have to stay in Galway to wait on the bags, he offered their lounge and latte machine (which was wonderful) free of charge for us for as long as we needed, even after we had already checked out of our room. Not only was our room clean and suited our accommodations just fine (a bit of a walk from downtown Galway--about 40 min--but a great location in Salthill very close to the coast), but their kind and generous hospitality was what made this B&B a winner.

We liked this B&B, it was an easy 10 min. drive into Galway, but convenient as we had a car hire and needed parking. The staff was very helpful and had great recommendations on places to eat.

Our room was lovely, it was clean and cozy. The breakfast area/sitting area was comfortable and had a feeling of home.

We would stay here again if we found ourselves in Galway again.

Stayed for 2 nights with my mum and sister in a triple room. It cost us euro10 by taxi to get into the city centre with local cab firm. Very quiet at night so you can get a good night's rest.

In peak season they don't include breakfast in room rate so check your booking! Breakfast is very reasonably priced so well worth getting up for.
