Reviewed 30 July 2014

I stayed here for a few nights during the Galway Film Fleadh and found my stay really enjoyable. The staff were really helpful and friendly, the gym facilities are great and the bar 'Bar Solo' was a great place for a drink with friends in the evenings. The staff really made us feel welcome, next time I go to Galway I'll be staying here again

Stayed in the Connacht hotel in mid July. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. My room was nice and it was well worth the money. Unfortunately I didn't get to use the pool because I was in a cast, but my girlfriend said it was really nice. The only fault I could find is the food was only ok. Otherwise a great place to stay. Would definitely return

Really enjoyed my stay here in July. Food was great, entertainment was great and suite was first class although quite a treck from bar area. Overall no complaints. breakfast was mighty as well. Slightly out of the city centre but nothing a short taxi ride didng cure. (around 9 euro)

My family stayed here for few days in July 2014. It wasn't cheap we had an apartment and we had everything we needed.
We used the swimming pool where I was met with rude patrons who felt we shouldn't be there as they pay there membership and thought they deserved better. I didn't try gym after this bad experience with an older lady while I had my 2 young daughters.
Kids club was enjoyable for them while my partner and I decided to enjoy a nice meal down stairs but after being told we had sorted in wrong colour zone and moving the staff continued to gossip instead of take orders and food was coming from kitchen that staff hadn't a clue who owned it.
On the whole my stay was ok as my daughters where happy but when we asked how much to add a night to our stay €180 was too much. No chance it's worth that for nothing but room.
