We spent 6 nights in a family suite at the Twelve hotel and had a pleasant stay. Checking in was easy, quick and friendly (with nice ice tea while processing everything). The rooms were clean, tidy and spacious. Breakfast is absolutely gorgeous with very tasty croissants, pains au chocolats and pains aux raisins (I am French, I can tell you when these things taste as nice as if they were from my local boulangerie). We had dinner on several nights and I really enjoyed it: the highlight of my son's holidays was actually the chocolate and marshmallow pizza. So all good, yet bits and pieces that would need to be cared for: wifi wasn't working well (we didn't want to complain because at the end of the day you shouldn't be stuck on the internet while on holidays and on the last day it worked perfectly: they knew about it and had IT engineers working on it - so we were told when checking out - hopefully it's 100% ok now). DVD players in rooms not working properly either but we were hardly in the room during the day so again, didn't suffer from it. The corridors are really dark too - too dark to my taste.
Location is perfect - was perfect for us anyway: didn't want to be in Galway itself but close enough. We walked to the pier one evening and had dinner at a lovely restaurant there too. The small town of Barna can be busy with traffic but it's convenient to all the nice places we wanted to visit. There is also a Supervalu, a barber, a few beauty salon, hairdressers etc...
We would recommend this hotel.
