Exceptional 10.0
Absolutely fantastic all around. We will definitely be back soon. Great staff with friendly welcome.

Good 6.0
Average. A lot of money for a routine hotel. Big plus is proximity to Eyre Square and this appears to be the sole rationale for charging a lot of money.
Sara, gb1 night trip
Very good 8.0
Good parking under the hotel accessed from the rear, good location and breakfast, but the rooms are compact.

Weekend away
Great location and a bonus having parking, nice breakfast friendly staff rooms need updating but would stay again
david, gb2 night romance trip
Fair 4.0
We were upgraded to a spacious apartment which was nice, however the place was sparse. No paper towels or kitchen towels. The kettle didn’t work (replaced 14 hours after request at 07:55 the next day with a surprising knock at the door). Really, though, for 300 Euro we expected better. No more, just better. Galway was great!
