Booked last minute yesterday to go see Galway for a night. Perfect! Right on the central square, like 4 minutes walk from Shop Street and bars restaurants beyond. Fantastic bar / restaurant connects with the hotel, but rooms are soundproofed and aside from neighbours leaving in the morning we heard nothing. Room was slightly on the small size but perfectly adequate, all fittings are new and kept clean and nice.
Bed was very comfy, secondary glazing (which all works!) keeps noise out and air con was easy to work to have room at lovely comfortable temperature.
Rooms have plenty info in to plan an itinerary or show you local places to make things as hassle free as possible.
Foyer / reception staff very polite and friendly.
Breakfast was very yummy, endless tea and toast with a full breakfast was very welcome - again the staff at breakfast were distant enough not to annoy but there for anything you wanted.
All in all a great historical hotel, fab location, not a cheap and nasty but not a rip off joint.
Just right. Would DEFINITELY stay here again of we visit Galway another time. HEARTILY recommend.
