We stayed in the pillo hotel on the Headford Rd Galway for a post Christmas break. I am very familiar with Galway and hotels around, and I am delighted I found the pillo hotel. It is clearly a step up from other 4 stars in Galway and we got a very good price for our 2 night stay.
We paid extra for breakfast not knowing what would be open in the vicinity of the hotel but there is a Spar shop right next door the hotel so one could easily skip hotel breakfast - but we found the hotel breakfast lovely and enjoyed relaxing and reading the papers.
The hotel was reasonably busy but not too much. The staff were friendly and helpful. There is free parking underground. The hotel is at least 20 mins walk to city centre but busses and taxis are plentyful.
There is a spa in the hotel which we did not make use of. Neither did we use the hotel restaurant.
The room was spacious with a large double and single and was spotlessly cleaned and serviced. There was tea/coffee making facilities and a fridge. The room we had looked out to the busy road but we didn't think the traffic noise was too much. The hotel has free Wifi which unfortunately was not available in our room on the 3rd floor.
The hotel has a number of offers when Connacht rugby matches are on so well worth considering if visiting for a match.
We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning at some future date and making use of the spa and restaurant as well.
