Ideal spot for a quick stay in Galway. Parking outside the door, 5 min walk to salthill main st and a 10 min walk to Spanish arch! Friendly staff and clean room. Breakfast is extra but loads of cafes close by. Family room was perfect. Lack of hot water in the morning the only problem but highly recommend a stay!

We arrived early but the staff allowed us to have our room then. The room was good, towels provided and an amazing view across the bay. Bed was comfy and breakfast was nice (although over priced at £8.50). Shower took a long time to warm up and the bathroom was very small and cramped. Staff were friendly though although the...

Clean, good location but when we arrived after 5pm I expected our rooms to be ready! Curtain rails were broken and no towels. I had to phone at 9 pm to remind them they had not provided towels. They do not provide hand towels, bath mats or toiletries so not good for cabin luggage only passengers!! Breakfast at €8.50 was...

We stayed three nights at this b&b, we paid upfront. The breakfast was disappointing. The full Irish was overcooked. We asked the night before for brown bread with the breakfast, a simple request we felt, the next morning we were informed there was none. This request was repeated and unfortunately not met throughout our stay. Breakfast was not served before...

We stayed in this b&b recently and will certainly not be returning . Rooms very shoddy and badly appointed . Only two towels in our room , no glasses , no hand soap and no door to the bathroom . Shower was cold and room was very noisy .Totally overpriced for what is provided .

I accidentally book this thinking it was a hostel. But the hotel is very beautiful and the rooms are clean, neat, tidy, and very cute. They serve really good Irish breakfast in the morning for a good value. I was very impressed. It's right by the ocean as well, and by the pubs/bars.

The location was only a 10 minute walk from centre. It was also next to sea and a few nice pubs. Great, tidy room with excellent breakfast included. Owner was helpful and nice. Recommended! The room had also a bathtub, water boiler, cups and tea/coffee.

I would strongly advise people to avoid this Bed and Breakfast. My partner and I were due to stay here on a recent trip to Galway. Our car broke down on the way to Galway and we phoned the White House from the side of the road (7pm) to let them know we were running late. We were told to...

myself and my husband stayed here last weekend and all I can say is we have never stayed in a place so grotty and run down as it is, to make matters worse they charged us €95 for one night which was a complete rip off for the service provided. the room we were in was dated and dirty I...
