Reviewed 15 November 2013

Reception where lovely, the room was huge, very clean, but the carpet had a stain, which it looked like was kinda cleaned but still there. Went to hav a drink in the bar one afternoon but couldnt because they were setting up for dinner, would one of the other lounges be more suitable for setting up for dinner. Had afternoon tea another evening which was not great for the price the scones were well over done. . Overall nice hotel great if got at a reduced rate. .

Myself and my partner stayed here for three nights we were so sad on the day we checked out. The room we stayed in was excellent very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was the best selection of food we have seen in a hotel. We had a meeting with Mairead geehan and she had plenty of information about things to do in Galway and was very informative about the hotel. We are looking forward to our next stay in this lovely hotel.

Loved this hotel for it's modern upbeat funky style and service. The Superior room was fabulous with so much room it felt sinful to leave it but we did. It's right beside the Eye cinema which was so handy and also just a nice walk into Galway city.

we stayed here mon ,tues 11 and 12 nov.
staff very friendly and helpful.
we asked to change our first booked bed room as it faced the retail centre at the back. the view was of hedges up to head high giving the appearance of being very enclosed, not what you would expect from a 5 star hotel.
was told it would cost 160 extra per night to change, how ever the manager rang back 5 mins later and moved us to front of hotel at no extra cost. the manager Virginia was most helpful in the matter.
restaurant was good with a very friendly staff who really made you feel at home.
breakfast was very good, better than a lot of hotels.

over all very good but not sure they justify the high prices for this hotel.

the better half said the espa was great.

Room Tip: check you are not being given a room at the back

I recently stayed at the G Hotel with a couple friends after their wedding in Maynooth. We had such a great time at the wedding and the good times continued in Galway. We stayed at the G Hotel for 3 nights and 4 days...The front desk helped me get a room last minute so I could stay with my friends (I hadn't booked a hotel yet because I'm a bit of a procrastinator :) and the concierge helped me try to book a sky diving excursion multiple times keeping me updated on the local weather and contacting me several times with updates (unfortunately the winds were to high when I was there so I didn't get to go but not because he didn't try his hardest to get me up in the sky). The hotel rooms were great, clean, and very comfortable... but most of all it was the continued good times my friends and I had at the Gigi restaurant and the lounges at the hotel that made my experience there so great. The cocktails and food were delicious, the bartenders were friendly and courteous, the lounge staff were fun and engaging which provided the perfect atmosphere for the newlyweds and I to continue the laughs, the fun, and the good times we had on their wedding day. Thank You G Hotel for ending our trip to Ireland in style, with smiles, with class, and with laughs!!! I would recommend this Hotel to anyone traveling to or through Galway!
