My fiancé and I stayed here for three nights during our trip to Galway. As we were getting engaged my fiancé had spoken to the hotel and turns out they upgraded us to a suite :)! However, due to the huge price of staying here neither of us actually realised we had been upgraded until my fiancé got an email saying we had. I think if we stayed in the room we paid for I wouldn't be happy due to the high price.
The hotel provided wine and chocolate dipped strawberries upon check in at my fiancé's request for an additional fee.
The room is well presented and has all the things you need to stay including bathrobes and slippers which were lovely.
Each day the maid replaced the biscuits that come with the tea and coffee which was lovely.
The staff, in particular Catherine, were lovely and were so happy when they discovered I'd said yes to getting engaged and did extremely well in keeping it a secret :)!
The air con was broke so it was super warm but staff provided a fan which helped lots.
The cocktails at the main bar aren't very nice, very alcoholic and lack flavour.
The breakfast was atrocious. Tasteless beyond belief but 99% of hotels seem to have horrible breakfasts so I dunno what I was anticipating.
All in all I wouldn't stay again simply due to the high price of the hotel and the fact we hadn't released we'd been upgraded.
But if you can afford it I would recommend it :)
