Recent guest reviews

Stayed here recently some work going on on one of the floors which they told me about. However the hotel needs a complete going over very tired looking rooms very basic Breakfast was also very basic in comparison to other hotels I have stayed in Galway.

Went there to watch Rugby was very quant and welcoming, large front reception area, the bar had easy access, they had a problem with the Ladies Toilets but was sorted within a couple of hours, staff were friendly and prices were reasonable will go back when back in Galway

Hard to put into words my experience in this hotel. My journey didn't start too well when arriving at the hotel I realized my friend (who was arriving later) booked the wrong dates. Once we got sorted at reception after an extra fee, which was fair . The girls at reception done what they could do for me, Thanks Aoife. The location is excellent, within walking distance of most things in Galway city centre. The room was very dated, as in the style of furniture, bed clothes, the carpet, the bathroom was clean and the lock on door was the old lock and key. All his you can handle. My biggest gripe was the smell in reception area and the bar especially, it was like leaking sewage vapours, even with the doors open always seems to hang around. Breakfast was excellent and the staff were nice and very accommodating. It is a stag and hen hotel be under no illusions. There was a fight between two sets of couples on our floor at 6.AM approx, the night porter was called and sorted it within minutes. So the hens and stags are not always the problem.

Absolute dump!!! Avoid buy a tent Filthy carpets, wires hanging out of walls temperature gage on wall fell off. bottle of vodka left on table outside my room empty it’s been there 6hrs now. Worst hotel I have ever stayed in

Nice hotel in a great location with friendly and helpful staff. Stayed for 2 nights at reasonable rates. Comfortable rooms. Breakfast was actually TOO hot when served but other then that,no problems at all. A point to remember,no car park. We didn't need it as we traveled by rail but the local rates seem to be about €8 a day.

Great hotel regarding the location to city centre. Room is adequate and has all amenities required. Breakfast is made to order and they offer plenty of options. Staff friendly. This is a good hotel for couples.

We got an amazing offer on for 2 nights BnB with a cocktail on arrival for €99. I cannot recommend this hotel enough. The staff were very welcoming and friendly from receptionists to the bar staff. Our room was located on the 1st floor and it was spacious, warm and newly renovated. The bed was huge and the shower was lovely and warm. The hotel is located in Galway City Centre and is so close to everything. We got a bus to salthill one day and the bus stop was right around the corner from the hotel. I will definitely be staying in this hotel the next time I return to Galway.

Stayed here recently for one night. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Only fault I found was they were doing renovations in the hotel early in the morning that's why I didn't give 5/5. Apart from that I couldn't fault this hotel it's right off eyre square which was perfect for me and the room was very clean and tidy. Would stay again!

The Walls are like cardboard. We could hear every stag and hen party on the same floor. Worst 2 nights in a hotel I’ve ever had. No peep hole on door so when a fight broke out on our floor we couldn’t tell where it was as we wanted to leave but didn’t want to open the door. Bathroom was very poorly maintained. Breakfast was average but very little choice, considering the price. My stay for 2 nights on a Friday - Sunday cost €278 which considering the experience we had was completely unjustified. Will never stay here again and definitely would not recommend it to anybody.

Stayed here with my wife and have to say we enjoyed our stay. On arrival there was construction going on but finished at 5pm and they didnt work on the weekend which was a plus. Old style hotel if your like that and great location on Eyre square. Have to sah not impressed with the bar, freezing cold, after coming in from been cold outside all you want is a nice coffee in the warmt. Didnt have dinner here so cant comment on that. Breakfast the next morning was beautiful and service was very friendly. Will return again.
