My partner and I spent the weekend in The Twelve and I couldn't fault a single thing. From the moment we arrived we were greeted with warmth and friendliness (and a very welcome hot punch). To our surprise we were upgraded to the Suite XII. Wow! What a suite. Massive and so comfortable. I've never slept in such a comfortable bed, with the most amazing pillows.
The restaurant downstairs was very well staffed, and the lighting and decor added to the relaxed atmosphere. Our waiter was very helpful and friendly. The breakfast in the morning (in the same area) was also impressive. Good choice and very tasty.
The location, to us, is perfect. Our intention was to see the coast and you don't have to travel far to get there. It's also not far to drive in to Galway city. The best of both worlds.
All in all we were really impressed with the hotel and the staff. Many thanks too for the personal cards I had asked for (it was a special weekend for us) and the fabulous surprise of the bottle of champagne waiting for us in our room. It's these touches that make you feel important and cared for.
I would highly recommend this hotel. Worth every cent.
