The staff was friendly, it looked like the amenities were pretty nice but we did not use any of them. Everything was nice enough but there were a few issues with the room itself, ie. the sink, toilet, bathroom door not working as they should. In
addition, wifi is ONLY available in the lobby which was not clear on the description. overall it was ok but too expensive for what you get.
Receptionist on arrival was very welcoming but other staff on reception were not as friendly or helpful.
Leisure centre hot tub lovely.
Humming sound in the room from heating/a/c a bit annoying when trying to sleep. Bathroom toiletories very sparce.
The place reminded me of one of the large motor hotels you see along the highways in the States. It was okay, but there was nothing exceptional about it. We ended up there because all the hotels in town were full because of the Volvo Ocean Race
festival. It's too far from town for people without cars. The local bus service is ideosyncratic at best (that's an understatement). Taxis are okay, but can get expensive. We spoke with other American tourists who had better experiences at the Galway B&B's.
One last comment, on the live music in the bar. One of the duet was over-amplified and drowned out the other. And covers of Cat Stevens, Johnny Cash and Hank Williams were not quite what we were expecting.
We had a fine stay, but this has so much potential to be better. We don't have any complaints other than I think they are short-staffed. We had to wait a while for service in the restaurant and the front desk person had to perform multi-functions.
It was somewhat out of town in Galway- we took the bus for 1.80 euro and this worked out great because we would NOT want to drive in the heart of Galway! It only took about 10-15minutes to get into the city. The bus stop was right in front of the hotel. I think the rooms need some artwork. The walls were just very bare. Positive note- the bed slept great! The pool and workout room were fine, but it was an actual club for the community- so it was very crowded. You have to have a cap to swim in the swimming pool, and the workout room was quite smelly since it was so crowded with sweaty people.
Overall, this was a fine stay. It seems that the hotel is trying to be a super nice hotel, but it's just a middle of the line hotel. It was clean and people were nice. Just don't expect anything super fancy.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Long walk from hotel
Be sure to be prepared to take the bus into the city. It comes every half hour. Do NOT drive into the city centre- you would be stressed. The bus costs 1.80 euros and took just a few minutes to get into town (10-15 minutes). This hotel is not in the middle of the city-- you can't walk to the city.
