Stayed at this hotel end of October, 2013 and had room in "New Wing". Room was very clean with plenty of space. Bathroom had both bath and shower clean with good towels. There is dual heating via central heating radiator and also via a very efficient air conditioning cum heating system. The double bed was, however, not very comfortable. The mattress was worn and had lost its 'spring' leaving it flat and hard. Still have 'creak' in my neck. Bedclothes too should be upgraded to duvets for comfort and hygiene. The TV was small and old with just the 4 Irish channels available - not good for keeping kids entertained for even short periods. To get to our room one had to traverse a long narrow corridor (about 3 feet/900cm wide) in the old house part of the hotel - quiet a long walk and a little worrying if one had to leave quickly in an emergency. Lift in this area is small noisy and worn. There was an alternative to reach reception and dining room by going outside along covered walk (roof only) through garden but in Galway the rain comes sideways most times and its cold. Apart from these items of concern the hotel is in great location and its strong point are its staff - they are most helpful, efficient, friendly and work very hard. The public areas in reception, the bars and leisure centre are all excellent and make for a relaxing stay. Breakfast is average with poor selection of fruit. Dinner however is good, with a good menu, good wine list and excellent service in a very well appointed and pleasant dining room.
