Stayed for 2 nights in January. once we had booked we received an e-mail with details and a map of the available parking,,,always handy ..saved us the effort of searching google maps for it! Arrive mid-friday afternoon to Crunchies on the bed...not a bad way to start the weekend!
Room was spacious larger than most luxury hotels, chains etc, modern decor comfy & extra large bed..shower was huge too and powerful..shower alone was nearly worth the visit. Heating was air-conditioned so we had full control over the heat in our room rather than the usual too sutffy or too cold option that you get from hotels that control the heat from a main source.
Location was unbeatable ... right around the corner from the main streets for shopping, dining, pubs etc. Hotel itself had a lively bar and free entry to the night club beneath (dont worry we didnt hear any noise in the room at night!)
Hotels food was great we ate dinner here on both nights and the breakfast choice was more than your usual cooked breakfast..porridge,some other healthy stuff...and pancakes,..mmm! breakfast was til 12 as well so we didnt even have to get up too early.
Staff were well friendly and helpful.
cuoldnt rate the place highly enough!! and Galway is just fab!!...we'll be back
