“Walls paper thin”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2007

We've just returned from 2 nights stay in this hotel.
On the plus side the hotel was cheap, very clean and the food was good and not so expensive.
The bed is really comfortable. The staff in the restaurant were really friendly and nice.
On the negative side we didn't sleep a wink because you could hear the TV next door. The walls are paper thin. This was really annoying.
I would say that if you're somebody who isn't bothered by the noise then this is a great budget hotel. This was the only negative thing about it.

  • Liked — The restaurant
  • Disliked — The paper thin bedroom walls
  • Tips/Secrets — Stay in the Travellodge in Galway city which is better and also cheap.
  • Stayed January 2007, travelled with family

Stayed with my partner overnight as we had a wedding to go to. Staff friendly and the rooms were clean and warm. Breakfast the next morning was lovely. It's an excellent budget hotel sitting in a lovely complex of shops etc just outside galway city (10 minutes drive) and worth a visit for a quiet relaxing break

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2006

I stayed here a few weeks ago and was very impressed. The staff were friendly and helpful. The whole hotel was very clean including the rooms, and the bed was extremely comfortable. The bar is nicely decorated with friendly relaxing atmosphere and although i did not eat in the restaurant, i heard from others that the food was very good. The village itself has a few restaurant/bars and as a cheaper alternative to staying in Galway city centre, it comes highly recommended. Especially as it is practically impossible to get an affordable hotel room in the city at weekends. It costs between 12 and 14 euro for a taxi into the city centre which is just a 10 minute drive and the hotel itself is half the price of most in the city.
