Location. Good. 1 mile from the city centre. That’s pretty close. Good cinema next door.
Service - 2nd to none. Very friendly. Nothing a problem.
Design: The hotel is an absolute work of art. You have to sit in that white room and look up to appreciate the surroundings.
Price. Haggle – theres a recession on. Sometimes the phone gets you the best price, Sometimes its third party websites.
Kids. Yes take them. Even though there are few family rooms. I booked a superior (standard) and upgraded to a deluxe plus two temporary beds for an extra 70 per night. The temporary beds were as luxurious as the main beds. Result: 2 adults and 2 children stayed here and paid less than the vastly inferior Radission.
Freebies. Cakes with the children’s names painted in chocolate left in the room along with 2 fruit smoothies. Free newspapers. Free bottled water each night in the room. Coffee comes with brownies.
Rooms: superior is very nice. The deluxe is huge and almost like a suite with a hall between the bathroom and the bedroom. The air con works just fine.
Flowers. I have to mention them - they are numerous, unique and different than any you see else where. Who ever picks them has great taste.
The spa. - Visit - it is fantastic - not like any other.
Breakfast. Great. self service for some things. table service for kippers, omelettes, etc. Quick service.
Free valet parking every time.
Wifi - free and works well.
Good sleep. The best. The most comfortable 6ft wide bed. You hear no sound from the corridor or the rooms next door.
Bar scene: - none. Just big arm chairs I'm afraid. A buzzing bar would be nice.
Drink prices. Fine for this class of hotel.
This hotel is classy and is light years away from all others in Galway. Stay there.
