Galway bay heaven...
This was a lovely stay and the weather was clear so Galway Bay looked gorgeous. The staff were lovely. Parking was good and the paths were gritted around the hotel - important with the frost. I thought the main restaurant was a bit dated in decor and everyone was trying to sit near a window for the view - however, the breakfast was super and food seems to be good. I went out to Salthill for restaurants - the Galleon had really nice seafood - and the cinema all within 10 minutes walk, plus Leisureland is nextdoor and plenty of city buses outside the hotel. The City is only 30 minutes walk along the seafront as well. Unfortunately the windows were all in need of a good clean, but otherwise I had a very pleasant stay and the room was really comfortable and clean inside. The swimming pool was small enough but very well kept and clean and had a sauna but not a steam room. But very pleasant stay all round. Definitel would go back

You have to stay here!
What can i say. Superb. The hotel and staff are the best. Always willing to help when its needed. The room in which i slept is ideal for disabled guests or anyone with mobility issues. The beds are very comfortable. I stayed in a corner room it does face the back however the side windows give you beautiful views of trees and the see. I was amazed by my room. I hope to stay again.
