Fabulous 8.6 From 595 reviews

Good 6.0
Young inexperienced staff
Check in & out was perfect. The hotel room was very clean and comfortable. We decided to eat in the hotel bar, which was a so disappointing. The service was slow, the mains arrived before our starter and they were incorrect. The hotel manager did address the suitation and provided a complimentary drink as a result. In my opinion there were alot of young and inexperienced staff working in this hotel. They were tripping over each other in the bar area but did seem to have any interest in clearing tables or sweeping under the tables. Breakfast was the same way and the food at breakfast was only average.

Lovely stay
As we were in Galway for some Christmas shopping we didn't spend much time in the hotel but we found the staff to be most accommodating and the facilities most comfortable.

Good Service but dated decor
Found our hotel room and general decor of the hotel somewhat dated / tired - looks like it had no recent investment! Also bar area wasn't the cleanest - eg: dusty light shades. However on a positive note the breakfast was very good and the staff service in reception, bar & restaurant was excellent.
