  • 8.0.Very Good

    Hotel room was lovely, very clean and modern. Only issue was the food service within the restaurant for dinner and breakfast. Dinner was very slow during our stay. Breakfast was carvery one morning and we had to order directly from the chef another morning which was unusual and cost a lot extra. Breakfast took an hour to get out to us and the staff were slow regarding same.

    Stellar hotel!

    I couldnt compliment this hotel more. Location is less than 10km from Galway city and very well priced as a result.The staff were really professional and very helpful from Deirdre at the reception to the waiters and waitresses. Food in the mornings and evenings was excellent (i didnt get to try at lunch time). The place was very clean and the wifi very good. Good selection of channels from flat screen tvs. Bathroom really spotless. Kettle came with a nice selection. Of bewleys coffee and tea, which was nice to get after a days work in the cold. Really enjoyed my stay here and will surely come back should i have more business in and around Galway city!

    Great staff

    Amazing staff, they take really care of you. The room was ok, the bed a bit uncomfortable. The downer was the food, not good at all. The breakfast was bad as well, no good quality.
