Was a great reception with the girl behind the desk being really friendly ! We walked from the train station just to see how long it actually is and it was about 20 mins to the centre of the town , the walk is along a main road where all the main shopping is including many good places and the cinema , we then got the bus which stops right outside and goes right into town for 1.80 every 30 mins , taxi was about 8 euro , the room was nice and spacious and immaculate with a great shower , got very warm in middle of night but you can knock the heater off , the bar food there is great and great value for money , the breakfast which is 7-10 is delicious and very filling ! Overall it was a great stay !!

Yes, what a shame! We booked 3 nights mid-week and upgraded to a Superior room. Needed the rest and relaxation and can't figure out why when the hotel was so quiet that we were put in room 135 right over the loading bay - could have taken a step out the window on to the roof of the various delivery/laundry vans. Unfortunately also the superior room was probably the most depressing hotel room I have been to in a long time and resembled nothing of those shown on website. So...can only guess that if you take advantage of the 'specials', you will get the inferior rooms. What a shame when I could have found nice things to say but the above overshadowed everything. €345 not well spent!

Room Tip: 135 is dark and depressing but has a great bathroom!!

Dear UnaB2,

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We are sorry to hear you did not like room 135 which is our Bridal Suite. We have found it to be one of our most popular and requested rooms with its four poster bed and jacuzzi bath and designer furnishings. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss your experience in more detail.
Kind Regards,
Michelle,
Guest Relations.

I honestly dont know how they manage to have so many nice helpful people in one hotel. We are well travelled and visit many hotels and there are always a few very nice members of staff and some not so nice but here they are all charming and helpful its amazing! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and thought the service was excellent its very popular at lunch time with local people and that always means value for money and we found it to be the case.

would we stay there again? Yes definitely we would. Excellent meals, huge bedrooms and we found it quiet at night no being woken up by loud banging of doors and the carpets are very thick we noticed so you dont hear people above you either. So good night sleep and lovely breakfast this hotel is somewhere I noticed people return year after year, near to the town centre but not too near.

Stayed here after an emergency left us (5 in total) unable to stay in our holiday home in Mayo. Although it was the October Bank Holiday and the hotel was busy they found us two lovely rooms to stay in. They also managed to provide a soft diet for our son who is severely disabled.

I had my wedding here in August of this year and was really happy with the service provided. We had excellent service from start to finish. I can't thank Albert, Elaine and the rest of the staff enough for making our wedding day such a wonderful experience for all my family and friends. The hotel were really great in helping arrange the band, photographer and flowers for the big day and nothing was too much trouble. I would highly recommend the Hotel to anybody wishing to get married as they are also excellent value for money. Thanks again xx

My boyfriend and I stayed here last weekend for one night. Our room was a beautiful big corner room with a huge bathroom and king size bed. The bed was very comfortable and the room was really quiet.
We ate in the restaurant which was very good, with very attentive and friendly staff.
The hotel is very handy to the city centre (around 5E in a taxi), and the front desk staff were very helpful in giving directions and local information. Parts of the hotel are a little tired and dated, and there were cobwebs on the lights in the lobby, but our room seemed to have been newly refurbished so maybe they're carrying out refurbishment throughout the whole hotel.
All in all we had a great stay, it was our first trip to Galway and won't be our last!

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet room when we booked in case of hen or stag parties as it was a weekend. The hot...
