The room was spacious, as was the bathroom, with large windows overlooking the street. The room was immaculate with a big, comfy bed. Good location - Galway is fairly small anyway, but the hotel is close to...

I gave this 4 stars because of the staff. Nothing was too much trouble and they even smile while doing it! The room was a good size, and very clean. The all day breakfast was good. 1200 checkout is great and other hotels in Europe and the UK could learn from this. The bus station across the road is a...
