Organised a hen party for 30 people in this hotel. Tara who organised the weekend was brilliant. Nothing was a problem. Rooms were perfect clean and got a superior room for the bride which was lovely and big. Walking distance to Galway city. Only 2 minutes. Thanks again for a lovely weekend.

It is not just the actual hotel itself, which is comfortable and inviting, but the entire staff, from the front desk to the maintenance people, it really doesn't matter, everyone was simply wonderful. The moment I walked in after an...

This hotel is in a great location right in the heart of Galway Centre. Personally the reception area gave the indication the hotel had a certain gothic boutique style which was not reflected in the rooms. The TV made no sense in terms of operation and the bathroom a very sterile white, with clinical lighting, loud extraction fan and yellowing...

I started using this hotel recently on recommendation from a friend and it ticks all the boxes for me. The number one thing that keeps bringing me back to good hotels on my travels is service and this place has it in spades. From the top down you can see they all pull together to get the job done.

To be fair, this hotel is more than adequate, does it's job and is in a great location. Galway is now becoming a very modern city and this hotel is a product of that, as in one of those that could be situated anywhere in the world, differentiated only by the accent of the staff. The room was fine, food...
