“What a view!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

We stayed at this hotel for three nights June 26-29. We had two ocean front rooms that h.ad wonderful views. The front desk staff was very helpful at check-in and throughout our stay. Our two children had much fun at the pool. We had the two course dinner one evening and it was great. The public bus right on the road by the hotel took us to Galway City for shopping and fun. The only drawback of our stay was a large party held on Friday night with a band that was very loud until about midnight. This did bother our sleep.

Nice, well-run hotel. Attentive, professional front desk staff. Expansive bar with top-notch music and active dance floor. We saw a 17- member band do Glenn Miller, Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin. Fabulous female vocalist! Good food.

Room Tip: get an upper-floor room facing the bay

We had a lovely time here at a friends wedding recently and enjoyed nursing our hangovers the day after in the pool and steam rooms which are second to none! Free car parking and beautiful views with the prom on the door step, what more would you want!

Room Tip: Definitely get a sea view on a higher floor and go down to breakfast

Just a note of thanks to yourself for the planning of our event in the Aran last Saturday.
Everyone really enjoyed themselves and had nothing but praise for the hotel and staff.
In particular we would like to mention Jean who controlled the dining service, and Opu the floor manager.
The young man at the bar was Ryan and he gave very good service ,complemented by all.
Hotel choice of DJ John Staunton was fantastic and he really excelled himself in music selection .
Those who stayed overnight all agreed on a lovely experience.

To Caitriona our event orgainiser kind wishes to yourself and please pass on our thanks to all concerned.

It was late afternoon when we arrived on a hot day only to find the ca rpark full of cars belonging to people going to the beach and it was chaos. Why no parking management like the hotel next door?
The room we booked was a sea view room which was part blocked by a wall.
The room was small and lacked character and the bed was terrible, the mattress had leaned away from the centre of the bed and staying in bed was a challenge.

I would not stay here again and think you are paying for location so the management feel little effort is needed in promoting standards.

Room Tip: Consider a better hotel

Nice hotel in a great location. Reception was fast friendly and efficient. Room was very dull with a small window looking out to the rear. Perhaps if you had a sea view room it would have been nicer. Though the room was dull and drab, the bed was comfortable and clean. Lovely bathroom with a big walk in shower ( no bath) . Tea and coffee making facilities were also supplied.Bar was busy with a good buzz and they served good bar food. Breakfast was good with lots of fruit etc. Dining room was very drab though and needs brightening up.
