We stayed here just before xmas, what can i say, what great value! we had a family room, double bed and two singles for just 39 euro. The food was also very good, i have eaten here before so i knew this, we got an 8oz steak with homemade chips for 9.99.

Spent three days at the hotel while attending a local wedding. It was the perfect meeting place for lots of old friends who came to see us there. The staff couldn't be more helpful. The rooms are large and confy. Really enjoyed ourselves.

Stayed here for two nights and have to say it was absolutely wonderful. The Management and staff were ever so helpful and friendly. The food and service was excellent. The rooms were to the highest standard of cleanliness, warm & cosy. Location is also ideal as its only ten minutes from the city centre. I would most definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who would be looking for excellent food, service and friendly atmosphere.

i stayed in the family room with my 3 children,10,11,12 and we found it brilliant.Despite our best efforts the staff kept it that way!!!we found the great value available on the food front really made life easier,why bother running around looking for something you have on your doorstep?cant go wrong with the big brekkie and then the lunchtime specials for 6euro to keep a hungry army on the march!Location is of vital importance of course and this was a major influence on my choice,and can only speak of my own experience,the hotel is on the main bus routes,has all manner of shops within minutes and also has good historical attractions,13th century friary,castle,heritage museum in Lackagh etc.

Total value throughout stay in this ideally placed small hotel.Great bar with good quality food available all day and evening. Top notch breakfast and friendliest staff ever. Really clean, comfortable and welcoming. Good transport links into Galway, but local shops and restaurants available nearby.Having stayed previously in Galway City centre we honestly think this is the ideal location .

My husband and I along with friends stayed at this hotel for a long weekend. The hotel was recommended to us by a local resident, a relative of our friends. Believe me, this is inside information that you can rely on! Everything was first class.
The accommodation could not be faulted. The location is ideal. Get a bus into Galway city from straight outside the hotel and a ten minute ride saves you all the hassle of parking.
Best of all was the friendliness of the staff. Nothing was too much trouble from coping with our very varied breakfast orders to spending time in the evenings with us to recommend trips for the following day.
We will definitely stay again. Worth it for the craic with Tina!!
