Hotel Meyrick is in a great location for Galway. There is no doubt about that. If location is all that matters to you - stay here! As for the actual hotel, though, we were very disappointing.
The outside of the hotel is stunning. Absolutely gorgeous. Even the entrance and lobby are beautiful. Then we go to our room. It is up stairs and down a lot of hallways. The hallways get increasingly less nice - you start to smell smoke and sewage - and then you get to your room. We were in the annex.
I had seen here on Trip Advisor warnings about this - but thought "no way". I didn't think it would be true and I certainly thought I would have gotten a nicer room. The room smells of stale smoke (despite having a non smoking room), there is mold all over the bathroom, the sheets were dirty (blood stains on the pillow), and the paint was literally falling off of the ceiling. I was so appalled.
It is *not* what you think you are going to get when you see this hotel on the outside. Unless of course, you look around the corner and spot the annex (there are photos of this if you go to users photos above).
I felt deceived, dirty and very disappointed in our stay. I would have stayed around the corner at the new(er) Radisson or found a nicer local hotel before staying here if I could do it again.
I guess that is what I get for not listening to the warnings I saw here!
