“Excellent food, helpful staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

We found the hotel easily with directions found on their website, our twin room was good. Two big beds which was a pleasant surprise, and we requested a quiet location which we got. Only quibble was the strange set up with the mini fridge...the timber door outside it had to be left open to keep the fridge at the correct temperature which was awkward! We requested a wake up call which did not happen but we woke anyway. Dinner was excellent -both quality and value. 2 course meal for 2 incl wine €49, and was a better standard than many restaurants we have been to recently. Excellent service in restaurant. Breakfast was fine, nothing exciting but very acceptable. The spa was fully booked when we arrived, we did not realise we had to pre-book for only use of thermal suite so that was a pity. Underground parking accessible from bedrooms a great plus. We will definitely return to this hotel!

I stayed in the Pillo this weekend. The hotel is modern, rooms are clean and averagely appointed.
The hotel is about ten minutes walk from the centre of galway.
The outstanding feature for me as a chef,who gets to lots of hotels and restaurants,was the dining. I wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly surprised by the dishes that were presented to my group of ten, i had the pork belly which was well cooked and looked good on the plate,its accompaniments worked well.
I would stay there again next time i am in Galway.

This was booked for me as part of a group visit to Galway.Staff were helpful and cheerful.Room well equipped and comfortable. Breakast usual fare and plenty of it. Was a little disappointed that the Sauna was not included and there was no pool .Easy access to Galway either walking (15 mins) or taxi. Otherwise would certainly use again.

The staff was kind in the late morning and evening. Our room's A/C stopped working on our second day, but Mark was VERY helpful in remedying the situation quickly. He went above and beyond. Our first night our room faced the courtyard were sound bounced off really well. At 3 am we heard someone yelling on the first floor in the courtyard to be let in. After about 20 min of this noise, I called to the front desk but they seemed more annoyed that I was calling than helpful. The noise continued for another 20 min. Then at 6:30am we received a wake-up call from the front desk which was meant for a different room, and the young man on the phone did not even apologize. Do not know who was on duty during those two encounters, but they were not the staff we had dealt with during the day. There was a trainee in the evening and she was very kind. Sad we had two disappointing encounters with the staff during the night. The room was nice and the bathroom was clean.

About a 20 min walk to the City Center at the most, and the location is great for day trips to Connemara National Park and in the other direction, the Cliffs of Moher

Room Tip: Request a room that does not face the courtyard.

I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough basing it on my 1 night B&B with a 3 course meal. The food was of a very high standard and was served by very friendly, helpful staff. Ideal location also with free parking.

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the pillo hotel. The room was fabulous and staff were welcoming and friendly. There was plenty of choice at the breakfast buffet which caters for all tastes. I highly recommend this hotel and will stay here again.

Good hotel, with great service. The disabled friendly room was very convenient. Its location is a hop away from a huge departmental store Dunnes Store and the Galway Shopping Centre, thus making it easy to shop away late in the evening.
