Walking distance to pubs and shopping. Friendly staff. Has a pub and coffee shop on site. Off site parking for fee. Great location

Overall great stay. Good restaurant in hotel, amazing location. Hotel rooms good but could have been cleaner.

The location is excellent. Walking distance to everything in Galway. However, there were numerous problems with our room. The hair dryer did not work, and it was a wall mounted unit so not an easy fix. The mattress was old, and therefore had a deep sag down the middle. The shower was really strange. There were separate taps for if you wanted a shower or a bath. Our first couple of days, the shower part ranged from inconsistent on temperature from hot to cold, but if you ran a bath the temp was fine. Then there were days where there was no hot water in the entire bathroom even when we woke up early thinking maybe there just wasn't enough hot water. When we mentioned these water problems, we did receive an apology and an offer to move rooms. We opted not to because we were going to be leaving. We're pretty easy going people, but the combination of all of these things made for a fairly unpleasant stay. There were signs saying they are renovating so hopefully our room is on that list.

The hotel is clean, the staff bent over backwards to help us. There were a few gliches-the tub didn't drain right, so they came several times to work on it while we were gone for the day. I needed ice for an injury and they got it for me right away. Our room was tucked away and one night the internet didn't work right. The night manager reset it, and then came personally to make sure it worked. Really nice people. They were helpful in finding great places to eat. Cookes was delicious and quaint and The Spanish Arch hotel has a great restaurant with fun Irish music. There is a grocery store just across the street to get sandwiches, cut up fruit, croissants, etc. for day trips. The bus station was a short walk-maybe two minutes away. There is also a small pharmacy across the street as well. We liked it so much, we stayed an extra day!

Walking distance to restaurants & shops. Parking not included however the lot the hotel partners with is around the corner and easy to get to.
