“Great Value”
Reviewed 20 August 2014 via mobile

GREAT HOTEL, WONDERFUL BREAKFAST AND STAFF. ROOMS WERE CLEAN AND TIDY. THIS IS OUR THIRD TIME AT THIS HOTEL. Very close to the city centre and a great location for a short Galway City break or the perfect base to explore Connemara and further afield.

Stayed here in august and turns out the place is pretty much a hostel - nothing wrong with that of course, except it cost €120 per room! Maybe just overpriced as we booked late and Galway v busy at this time of year, but the quality is nearer €50 a night

Dear LondontoDublin,

Thank you for taking the time to review our property.
I hope you enjoyed your time in Galway. While you may have found the price expensive, we pride ourselves in consistently offering the most competitive hotel rate in the city. Also, taking into account the hostel comparison, I think it is important to point out that we are in fact a 3 star hotel. We have our own bar and restaurant and all of our 59 rooms are en-suite and completely private. Furthermore we provide free parking to our guests in our 70+ space lot.
I am grateful for your feedback as it is an absolute necessity in order fur us to further improve or services here.


Kind Regards,

Stayed here during Race Week this year and considering it's the busiest time of the year I found the hotel spotlessly clean, the staff courtesy and helpful at all times. The rooms were very well maintained and clean also. The breakfast we had the next morning was cooked fresh and was very tasty. I would have no hesitation in staying here again or recommending this hotel to any of my friends.

Stayed here with friends over race week. Excellent location, 10 min walk to the city centre. Found Seamus( general manager) very helpful and knowledgable about Galway, gave us great info about local pubs and transport to the races. All the staff we came across were polite and friendly. Got a great breakfast every morning in preparation for our day at the races! Thanks for a great stay and we have already booked another weekend in November!

Speak as you find - I was polite to the receptionists - they were absolutely great back. I have to say that the very good refers to what I had for the price I paid in advance. I have checked my card statements and no unauthorised payments have been made as some reviewers imply. It was a reasonable room, with fresh towels each day, soap and shampoo available, fresh mugs daily. Like all places you get what you pay - if you want posh - pay more.

There were a couple of small things that management could solve and get rid of niggles from visitors. The curtain hooks hadn't been done up properly- two minutes could have fixed that. A hole in the table top - again some filler and stain- slightly longer but makes a difference.

Wifi available in the bar as well as the vestibule - that's for free. I paid to have the comfort of using it in my room - so it cost more. The bar was nice and reasonably priced. Didn't eat here but was given good advice where to get good food in Galway.

Yes we were quite satisfied for what we paid.

It's a ten minute walk to the centre of Galway Town and all the lively goings on, but it's half the price of the town centre hotels. Staff were very helpful and the Wifi in the bar and breakfast room was fast. You could have paid for wifi in your room but not necessary for me.

Room Tip: Main road to front so ask for a room at the back

Stayed in Travel lodge few times and it was alright. However.... Traveled down to country last week and stayed in Galway for a night... €156 - no breakfast or WiFi included. Joke.... Your bathrooms needs a lick of paint also.

Dear sharinta,

Thank you for staying with us.
I am sorry to hear you had grievances with the rate, however this is peak season here in Galway and we pride ourselves in consistently offering the most lowest hotel room rate in the city. The night of your stay was no exception. We offer free WiFi to guests in our lobby and bar/restaurant area. WiFi is only chargeable in the actual rooms. We also do offer discounted bed and breakfast rates when booking in advance but you chose to avail of a room only rate.
All criticism is constructive nonetheless and I grateful for your feedback.

Kind Regards,

Seamus McWilliams
