Lovely hotel right on Galway Bay at Salthill. Check in was at 4pm we arrived at 5.30 ish but our room was not available. Helpful receptionist arranged for another room for us (as we had arrived in the throws of hurricane Lorenzo and were soaking wet) that she said was better than original booked one, she was right it had both views of the bay & gardens. We had a meal at the bar restaurant but service was very slow and food not that great we ordered a curry and popadom was stale and had to be sent back, staff was very apologetic. Think due to storm they may have been short of staff. Otherwise would recommend, but be aware you need to take a bus from Galway station as too far to walk with cases

Salthill Summer Holiday.
Very friendly hotel. Venue was top class as was the vista. Clean, airy and big rooms. Staff very friendly and accommodating save for sorting our sink which wouldn’t flush and continually taking a 3 rd towel away leaving only 2 despite 3 people staying In the room. Bar was slow in serving so put us off going there but as we had active days it worked out that we didn’t visit the bar much. I’ll definitely be back but next time I would like them to action issues despite allowing it to linger.
