“Wedding”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

I recently had my wedding in the Meyrick (July 18th) and myself and my new wife couldn't have been happier. The staff (Paula, Siobhan and everyone else who helped us in the build up and on the day) were fantastic, the service was superb, the room and breakfast was A1 and the food during the meal couldn't have been better. I would highly recommend the place to anyone getting married in Galway and also considering staying in Galway.
Thank you to everyone involved, made our day go so smoothly!

When you read a review here it is often obvious that one small thing turns average to excellent or turns average to terrible. My one small thing with the Meyrick was breakfast. Slow, limited choice of indifferent foods and poor service even from the M'd. And all setup in the basement! But I am only docking one star for that.

Front of house staff all very friendly and helpful.

Room was good but the whole place really needs decorating, housekeeping was efficient and discrete. And there is no aircon, with a busy, noisy, central location this might be a problem for some. (Also noted free standing heater in suite so winters might not be warm enough!)

Valet parking at EU5 is a snip.

I would stay again here but because of the one thing can't recommend it. Jury's Inn might be better located and benefit from a more modern design.

Room Tip: Sq View is a must, Bay View looks over railway and factories.

Dear hazy_amersham,

Thank you for this review. All your comments have been taken on board by our management team.

It was disappointing to read that you found our breakfast food and service quality poor, as this is not what we expect of ourselves. We will raise there issues with relevant personnel.

You comments have been duly noted, we at the Hotel Meyrick are continuously reinvesting in the product and it is always important for us to hear where guests feel we need to improve on our Décor.

Thank you once again for your time and we hope you will visit us again to see an improvement on all the points raised above.

Kind Regards

This hotel has so many issues that it won't survive if it doesn't do something urgently. The telephone is not picked up for hours. No baggage storage facility, no option to pay by credit card at the bar unless you have a type of pay as you go top up. Our room must have been used in a previous life for vacuum cleaner storage. Met another guest after checking out who paid EUR80 for room after negotiation rather than EUR200.The breakfast in the basement is terrible such potential over lovely Eyre Square but what was most shocking is that the hotel reception staff are ashamed to work in the hotel so much so they said it's hotel managements fault and the hotels fault not theirs. The best thing about this hotel is the lovely man who works for Brinks security for the train station. He was very helpful and said no way can you leave luggage unattended in public areas of the hotel and especially without a e

Dear MsEuro,

We are grateful for you taking time to write this review. We at Hotel Meyrick take all of our guest feedback in a constructive manner as without it we are at loss as to know if we provide the service we expect of ourselves. With that said we have to say that we feel that your review is not very honest.

First of all we have a very efficient team at a Front Desk and I can assure you that all phone calls are answered promptly and in a professional manner and every staff member is proud of working at Hotel Meyrick. Regarding your comment on the room rate, prices might variate depending on the room type and day of the week, but under no circumstances would there be such a big price difference on two standard rooms during Galway Race Week. Regarding the size of the room; you were made aware that the room you were getting was the last room we had to sell and that it was on the small side. We were under the impression that you understood this on the day. I would like to remind you that we did offer you a room move on the second day to a nicer and bigger room and a complimentary upgrade.

We do have luggage storage facilities for our guests if they leave their bags with us long-term otherwise we bring the bags to guests room or have them in the Reception Area which is manned at all times.
We did not understand your comments regarding the top up system in our bar as we do accept credit cards, cash and room charges as any Hotel Bar in Galway City.

We are disappointed to hear that you did not like our newly refurbished No 15 on the Square Restaurant for breakfast. But I guess it is a personal choice. It would be great if you could specify what food choices were "terrible ". Was it our cold buffet selection of Cheese,Cold Meats, Smoked Salmon, 5 different types of cereal, pastry selection,different juice variation and homemede scones/breads?Or was it our Full Irish Breakfast buffet that included bacon, sausages, puddings, grilled tomatoes hash browns and scrambled eggs? Or was it the fact that if you did not find anything to your liking at our breakfast buffet you could order directly from the kitchen?

We hope that you still did enjoy Galway as it is a beautiful city and if you ever come to visit The West of Ireland, please pay us a visit.

Kind Regards
Hotel Meyrick

My stay here was excellent. Couldn't ask for any better. Location was great. Shops/ restaurant all walking distance.Lady at reception was very polite and check in was very quick. Also great you don't have to worry about parking car as hotel has car valeting. The room was big enough for me. Had dinner in bar and couldn't fault it and service was good. I hadn't a great view from bedroom which didn't bother me. Uses spa aswell which was great and so relaxing. However there wasn't much power from shower and room vertmy warm at night. Overall stay here was great.

We spent 3 very pleasant nights here and travelled out each day to visit Connemara (don't miss Clifden) and The Burren. Service was faultless, cheerful, friendly staff. Breakfast was delicious - feasted on soda bread, scrambled eggs (freshly made in the kitchen if you ask - better than from the buffet) and Galway bay smoked salmon. Highly recommended! Our room was a suite on the 5th floor, overlooking the square - a better view than the bay view, which is a bit industrial and the sea is rather distant. That said, there was noise from the square at night which didn't bother us - we enjoyed the experience of being in a lively town. There is no air con, so in warm weather you'll need the windows open. We were very helpfully provided with an extra fan.
There is an 'Executive lounge' on the 5th floor with complimentary coffee (gaggia machine) pastries ad fruit. Lots of offers at the spa but I didn't try it - seemed reasonable prices.
We didn't eat in the restaurant - Galway town is bursting with good places to eat, mostly walk in ( no reservation), great to walk out at night and hear live music everywhere. A MOST enjoyable stay at a slightly faded but fantastically friendly and helpful hotel in a brilliant location.
Valet parking at €5 per day was super - just pull up outside and the concierge arranges parking!

Room Tip: Front is noisy at night but nicer view!

As the Ardilaun had no availability on Saturday August 2nd I phoned a number of alternatives. Bernie answered my phone call and prayers in confirming availability. We were facilitated with an early check in and valet parking on site. Our room was on the small side but was adequate and comfortable. The hotel has revamped the old dining room and it is an improvement. The foyer is comfortable and perfect for relaxing, snacking or people watching. I would have reservations about the basement/breakfast location which Is noisy. The hotel oozes character and is well worth a visit.
