Peter was great. He's super friendly. The hotel is quaint, and our room was spotless.
Not a "luxury" hotel, but perfectly acceptable and comfortable for an overnight stay. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Rooms upstsairs are quieter.

Got a double room from Monday to Friday. It was cleaned every morning. We were never disturbed. It's in a great location right by the sea. The manager was possibly the nicest person I've ever come across. I will definitely be back.

Got there last friday evening met with Peter (the aussie) the boss,his wit, friendleness and charm took us by surprise he was so helpful and friendly not every manager takes the time to ask the names of the whole group and further more addresses you by name for the whole weeend, he is one gentleman. The hotel was spotless, the bed was so comfortable.The bar down stairs was great with a lovely friendly atmosphere.Lohans excellant for dinner and breakfast.Had a really lovely weekend in Salthill and Peter we will be back;

We were so well looked after by Peter, the owner. Nothing was too much trouble. The room was great and the shower was excellent. All Peter's recommendations were spot on. Thank you and we really hope to see you again soon.

Room Tip: Room 10 was great for a family with one child and really peaceful.

Yes, the manager is friendly and helpful but that is the only positive thing I can say. We were travelling round Ireland and this was the worst and, by comparison, the most expensive place we stayed. We paid 59 euros for a double room (which is the same price we had paid the previous night for a luxury B & B with breakfast in Clifden) which was small, poorly decorated with a very uncomfortable bed and this does not include breakfast. We paid 63 euros for a luxurious room in the Radisson Blu in Athlone with a magnificent breakfast. No comparison. Our single friend paid 49 euros and this again was the most expensive room he had on the tour and also the worst. Bathroom was poky with barely enough room to move. Hot water to the tiny shower was intermittent. There is no residents lounge but you can go into the pub which is below the hotel. It is a good walk into Galway - about 25 minutes - although it is an easy, flat walk. The hotel is very run down but when I spoke to the manager the following day about the bed he said that our room was the next to have a new bed. Really? We were on the second floor and there is no lift but the manager did offer to carry our bags up for us. The room was hot and stuffy and we could not leave the window open as the smokers from the pub downstairs gather in the doorway and the smoke drifts upwards. Also the taxi rank is outside and the taxis leave their engines running all night. I would not recommend this hotel - we found some lovely B & Bs down the road which were cheaper and provided much nicer rooms. We will definitely be returning to Galway as it is a fun city but will NOT be staying here. There is no parking but we were lucky to find a space on the street. This is not a hotel, it is an overpriced pub with rooms.

Room Tip: Don't get a room at the front or over the bar.
