Park House Hotel or Hotel Meyrick--Is one a little nicer?

We are finalizing our summer vacation and are still debating between the Park House Hotel or the Hotel Meyrick. Are one of these properties nicer than the other? Or is there some advantage of one over the other? We really can't tell from reading about them as they both seem nice.

Our only "must have" is an easy walk to the Galway Coach Station (and also possibly the GoBus station), so we can take our tours and catch our buses.

I'm in Galway right now. Park House in unequivocally nicer. If PH is not available, the Forster Court next door is nice too. Meyrick looks great on the exterior, but needs a renovation on the interior. Hope this helps.

We have stayed at the Park House twice now and really enjoy it, the location can't be beat! I haven't stayed at the Meyrick so I cannot compare the two but will certainly state that for all other trips we have to Galway, we will certainly stay at the Park House Hotel!

We've stayed at the Park House from check to check out everything was perfect.

Both Park House and Meyrick are close to the bus station, if you decide on Meyrick ask for a room overlooking Eyre Square.

Our preference though is Park House

If its not available then go with The Meyrick, far nicer than Forster Court which is a run of the mill 3 star. The coach station is the Go Bus station too just so you know.

I'm staying at Park House now - it's excellent. Highly recommend. We had dinner in the restaurant last night and it was over the top - some of the best food we've had in the 2 week stay.
