My mom and I stayed here for a couple of nights for a weekend away. It was definitely one of the most affordable options in Salthill. The design of the room was dated but this didn't bother us as we really only used Ocean Crest for sleep. The bathroom was slightly claustrophobic and very close to the bed in the... More

This hostel was exactly what was published about it, cute, comfortable, reasonable and great location (beach front). The receptionist offers full assistance, is fast and pleased to help. I don't think I could chose any better place during my stay, it was short, 2 nights only, but I was happy about it!

The B&B was well located. It's 15 minutes walk from the city centre. We had a nice room with a view on the ocean. The room was adequate and the staff was very kind. I must recommend if you are on a small budget and want to visit Galway. It's a value for money B&B. You can park your car... More

Good location easy walk along prom at salthills or into Galway very nice welcome and advice on where to go and best restaurants we were in a ground floor room next to front door which meant everyone entering or leaving looked into our room so would benefit from vertical or Venetian blinds rather than having to keep curtains closed

This is a commercially owned B&B so more like a hotel. Very nice location across from ocean. Five minute walk to many pubs and restaurants. Good breakfast, comfy room and bed. Easy to find with good parking.

Booked this with a few friends for a few drinks, really well located on the sea front and only a short walk into Galway itself. The room was really dated and in need of modernisation. The bathroom was really claustrophobic. The woman working there was lovely and really helpful though

Stayed here for 1 night for a night out. Parking out front which is handy, and just a 5 minute taxi ride into the town centre where all the restaurants and pubs are. Room was clean, beds a bit squeaky but comfy enough, old tv, ironing board to borrow if needed would stay again if in Galway. I was concerned... More

Upon arrival, I was rudely informed by an employee (no idea who she was) that I had booked a single room and we could not stay. I kindly told the woman I specifically booked a room for two people. She even pulled out her booking (appeared hand written!) that showed we only had one guest. I know what I booked.... More
