myself and my husband stayed here last weekend and all I can say is we have never stayed in a place so grotty and run down as it is, to make matters worse they charged us €95 for one night which was a complete rip off for the service provided. the room we were in was dated and dirty I...

Rooms just nice for our family. we just need this to have a night stay and recover for us and children as well. Good sleep and easy to find the location. Free parking and really nice since we can get 2 rooms near each other because we travel in a big family.

This bnb was the ideal place to stay in during a visit to Galway. It's only ten minutes out of town in the lovely quiet part caller Salthill. The facilities themselves were excellent and the bed was SO comfy. Would have loved to stay longer. Would definitely go back again.

We stayed overnight here .A break away from work.It was very out dated .The decor leaves a lot to the imagination...awful . Old fashion but not in a nice vintage way it was just tacky .The breakfast was terrible so even that didn't make up for everything else,would not stay here again very disappointed.

Expensive room for the size, Small and dirty bathroom compleate with unflushed soiled toilet. Small breakfast with very limited choices. Poor value for money. For the cost of this room i would have expected more. Next time i will pay the extra to stay at a hotel.

This is as basic a B&B as you can find. The room was very tired, bathroom tiny. They spent money on the outside, but inside its in need of a makeover. The place has no personality, and the owners have delegated their hosting responsibilities to two foreign students who can't cook or interact. This is not an Irish B&B experience....

First the location is great, in Salthill overlooking the bay - if you get a front room the views are great. It is a ten minute walk into Galway where there are a host of restaurants and bars. Also, its ten minutes in the other direction to Salthill where there are also lots of good bars and restaurants. The rooms...
