There are so many things to love about this hotel that its hard to even start the list. What looks like an office building on the outside completely surprises on the inside. The service was absolutely amazing - a true 5 star experience (although unlike normal 5 stars hotels there is nothing stuffy and snobbish about this place - in a good you can relax way). From the minute the car was taken by the valet we were treated like royalty.
On check in they asked for both of our signatures (I can only assume so that we could both sign for drinks etc - had never seen this before but quite intelligent). We were brought around and up to our room. We had booked a luxury room and although we looked out onto the street it was so quiet that we could have been in the middle of the country. The room itself was just beautiful and had loads of quirky little bits of design just waiting to be found and adored - cupcakes, the softest slippers I have ever had in a hotel, etro toiletries and every other thing in the hotel. The bed was definitely the most comfortable I had ever slept in - "like sleeping on the back of little lambs and the duvet made by magical fairies" (his quote not mine).
The reception rooms downstairs are all beautiful and the cocktails - well I should really stop here before I gush too much. We missed dinner but breakfast was absolutely yummy. On leaving I can only say that if I won the lotto I would love to live out the rest of my days there!
I will definitely head back - next time hopefully to a suite. Spend the few extra Euro for a fabulous hotel in Galway and you wont be disappointed.
