Was in Galway City for the weekend at a wedding, so decided to stay in Oranmore for a change. We were looking for something basic and of good value and this hotel ticks both boxes. The rooms are functional with all the conveniences you would expect and very clean too. The only thing that needed fixing (I didn't ask as it was minor) was the TV. Loads of sport channels (good), but no news channel, just for something on in the background.
The bar is perfect for a nice quiet pint and a newspaper, or if you're looking for other choices, walk out onto the main street (the hotel is right on it) and you've several other choices of bars and restaurants.
We didn't get to eat in the restaurant so cannot comment, but they must be doing something right, as it was extremely busy on the Saturday night. We did have breakfast on both days, which was included in the rate and that was tasty and plentiful. One great thing about breakfast, it's serviced until 11:30 on Saturday! Most hotels are finished breakfast while you're still asleep!
Not sure how much a taxi is from Oranmore to Galway as we were driving, but can't imagine it's that much, as it's only about 10 minutes in the car and it's only 2 hours from Dublin thanks to the M6.
If you're spending a few days in the west, this is a great hotel to use as your base.
