We had dinner one night last week here. The food was amazing and the service was top class. It was our first time being there but we will definately be going back. We were looked after by a girl called siobhan. She couldn't have been anymore helpful. Definately recommend.

Hi Stephen, Thank you for your very nice comments. I am delighted to mentioned Siobhan's name. All the team try so hard to please and it really means a great deal to see one's name mentioned.

Myself and my husband are just back from an amazing stay at this hotel. From start to finish the service from all the staff was the best I've come across in a long time. We arrived too early for check-in so decided to have an early lunch in the bar restaurant which was lovely. The very friendly receptionist who started...

Stayed with my husband for two nights. Its very easy to find on the main road into Barna from Galway city, a 10-15 min drive. On arrival we were greeted with a glass of ice tea which was a nice touch. Check in was quick but our first room key didnt work. The room itself was very nice, decorated well,...

The decor of this hotel was very dark and club-like. We stayed in a suite which was decorated with a bar kitchenette area, very dark walls, red lampshades. Even in daylight one felt one was in a cave. The bathroom even had flashing multicolored lights. It seemed that the hotel was trying too hard to be edgy which made the...

Hotel came highly recommended,but was disappointing. Rooms very dark and poor artificial lighting available. No bath in our room tho that wasnt a big issue for us. No bottle of water in room which seems standard now in even most 3star hotels, no ice machine and when we asked at night about a bottle of water were told to purchase...

The welcoming experience is fantastic with professional and friendly staff. The room we had was too dark and the wooden flooring looks nice but felt too cold. There was a noisy bathroom fan. The whole room needed a refresh. The highlight was the amazing food in the gastro bar.

One of my favourite hotels, this place is a gem. Service is excellent and the rooms are so luxurious in impeccable condition. Try their top suite. ..one of the best in Ireland. This hotel will not disappoint with attention to detail that is second to none. Should be number one.

This was a great hotel away from the crowd in Galway city and a very good breakfast. It also supplied a robe and slippers. No courtesy water and with a very deep soaking tub that was very hard to reach the faucets to adjust the temperature of the water. The 1/2 glass partition was fixed in place as opposed to...
