“Needs updating!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

Stayed at this hotel recently needs updating urgently! Very dated, there was a wedding on Saturday night all we could hear was loud music. The shower was a walk in one, again it had not been maintained as water was very slow to go down drains, we thought bathroom was going to flood at one point. Would not stay here again

I stayed in the Salthill Hotel for 4 nights last week. From check-in to leaving, there was nothing I could fault the hotel on. From the receptionists to the management, bar staff, restaurant staff, room staff and leisure centre personnel, they really prove that a stay in a hotel can be rewarding. The food was excellent as were the rooms. Nothing wasa problem when requested and that is how it should be. The General Manager was willing to involve himself in ensuring the guest was the number 1 priority.
Having stayed in many hotels across the world, I would recommend this hotel to anyone without hesitation

Room Tip: A slight problem was the loud air-conditioning vent outside my bedroom window

Stayed for 2 days on B & B in mid-September in an executive room 135 with sea view. Our first floor room very clean, well equipped and comfortable, the view restricted by gymnasium building part of hotel complex. Breakfast taken in Amber restaurant, good choice of both cold and hot food which was continually topped up to keep fresh. In the evening this restaurant was used by coach parties. The Prom restaurant served Italian menu too pricey for us. Outside nearest restaurants some mile away, had dinners in Bar. This is large area and popular but was well under staffed on two occasions we used it. The food was well cooked and plentiful and worth the 40 minutes we waited to have order taken.
The staff were friendly and helpful, hotel clean and well furnished with large comfortable lounge area as part of reception. Free WIiFi, ample free parking in front of hotel and in underground car park below the hotel. Placed conveniently on beautiful promenade about 2 miles from Galway town. Bus stop outside hotel with 10 minute run into Town, where parking is difficult. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: Best sea views at front in centre of hotel

The staff here are so helpful and willing to give you their attention despite two weddings over the three days stay there. On the down side, while the weddings were on, the noise level was such that it would disrupt your sleep.

I stayed at the Salthill for 2 days as part of a CIE tour. Beautiful, spacious lobby and quick check-in. Dinner in the dining room was great. Service was good and food delicious. I liked the ambiance of the Bar, friendly staff helped me select an Irish whisky, and atmosphere was cozy on a very rainy night. My room was large with a very comfortable bed and modern bath with lots of counter space. WIFI connection consistent and appreciated. Lovely View from window overlooked the bay and Promenade walkway. Comfort and quality...what more can you ask for?

Stayed April 2013, traveled solo

We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights last week. We were very impressed with the level of service we received from the reception, rooms, pool and especially the dining room. Nothing was to much trouble for any of these guys, the food was exceptional and always came with a smile and nothing was ever to much trouble. The room had a very large bed and loads of space and was very clean. The pool are was immaculate including the steam room and sauna.
The only fly in the ointment was the bar staff, the service was very poor and we always had to wait a long time at the bar to get served. When we did it was hard to get a smile from anyone as they were always to busy talking to each other or in a complete daze ! These guys could work in the laundry where they would not be seen, it was a shame as this was the only let down for the four days. I would stay here again but i think we would go out at night to get a drink, which would be a shame as the entertainment each night was great.
