Mixed reviews are warranted. Yes, it's in a great location but saggy mattress, lumpy pillows, no breakfast, no service and no phone/contact ( and no contact when things go wrong ....we opened the door to someone who's keys didn't work because there was no one on site). No volunteer offering of wifi or any recommendations or city maps. To add...

Visited Galway on a stag do and stayed here for the weekend. It has potential to be great but its very run down and dirty, the kettle in room 5 had brown flakes inside. One member of staff has a poor attitude who works at night, even the locals we met spoke bad of him. Food is good and catered...

Never have I ever encountered such blatant rudeness, the owner (I believe) foul language aggressively intimidating a individual for no apparent reason, unwelcoming, food was foul, service poor and general overall hygiene despicable. Worst establishment I have ever had the displeasure of having visited. Left a very bad taste in my mouth, literally.

Stayed with 5 friends. Great rooms at a great price. The owner was a great guy. Had a good chat and laugh over breakfast which was also good. Would recommend. Latin quarter is a great night out as is Galway.

Hotel is in a perfect location only a short stroll from all that Galway has to offer. The rooms are all clean & the breakfast was great. Nothing to fancy but for the location & the price it is excellent value for money.

Nice central location, pay & display car park 100 yards away (free after 7pm on a Saturday till 8am Mon morning) Close to all pubs in Galway. Rooms basic but sat TV and clean Food in pub was fantastic. After a long day travelling you don't need to hunt for a restaurant. Landlord was really pleasant and happy and couldn't...

- Good location, very short walking distance from the center - Lots of space in the room, spacious despite suitcase - I've always wanted to sleep over a pub; we were not disturbed at night at all from any noise - Lots of light through multiple windows - The bathroom wasn't the cleanest I've seen (maybe because it's older), but...
