How this place can use the term boutique is beyond me. Rooms are tiny. Like, TINY. And yes my husband is tall, but after placing a very small carry on bag on the floor, there really wasn't anywhere to move, let alone for him to be comfortable. It's also difficult to find. There's no sign, apart from the lettering on... More

Stayed here in September and was not at all what is was described on booking.com we had expected a quaint little boutique hotel but it is a B and B in a very old house. The rooms are absolutely tiny there is no reception area just a little hallway with a kitchen table to take payment. A tiny stairs leads... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night whilst visiting Galway. The location is fantastic and close to the beach in Salthill. Staff were lovely, friendly and helpful. We booked at a special offer price so found it good value for money but the rooms are very small - if you suffer from claustrophobia I would not recommend staying... More

 The room  was damp and stinking of cooking from the kitchen in the restaurant below, which provided all the noise of a party in your room. The bed sheets (also damp) had been washed but were stained with who knows what,  as were the pillows (blood stains), duvets & sheets. There were 3 hangers and a hat stand for the... More

The rooms are very small for the price. This place is a little quirky, tiny room with a bath inside the room. The owner however is a very pleasant man. I have asked for a room upgrade as we were celebrating my partner's birthday and we got it. Despite the room being tiny, we've had the best sleep ever as... More

WE DIDN'T LIKE ANYTHING. Rooms were SMALL, the closest experience of being in a jail cell ever. No space to open your suitcases, really (!) No closet (just a hollow space in a wall with a hanging bar). Dust everywhere, rusted toiletries, a window facing a cement dark patio, broken blinds, so sun entered really early in the morning. Some... More

Stayed here last weekend. Way too expensive for what you get - tiny, tiny room that backed onto a small yard which is used by the restaurant downstairs and so quite noisy. The images on the booking.com website a really misleading. The room was tiny - with hardly space to store bags. Also none of the usual facilities you would... More
