A converted stone warehouse situated very close to the bars and restaurants of Galway.
We stayed in a double room (including breakfast) for one Friday night beginning of October 2011 (we were very lucky to find a room at such short notice).
The first thing you will notice when you enter the hotel is the pink and purple decor, maybe not to everyones taste but dont be put off. The main reception, sitting area, bar and restaurant are all on the same ground floor.
The rooms are very comfortable, clean and nicely furnished. We had a room overlooking the main road through the center of the city, but we couldn't hear the traffic because of the double glazed windows. The bed was large and comfortable.
Although we didn't have an evening meal in the hotel, apparently the restaurant is very good. However we did have an excellent full breakfast in the morning. The bar also looked very good and seemed to be quite popular the previous night
The only negative point is probably the access to the hotel for people with cars. If you want to drop off luggage or passengers you will end up parking with your hazards lights on. If you drive round to the back of the hotel there is a quieter off-street which is less dangerous. Overnight parking is at a secured multi-car park block 2-3 mins walk away. The hotel offers a discounted price for this service.
Overall, really enjoyed the hotel, comfortable, quiet, stylish and very central to Galway hotspots.
