We had a one night stay recently and could not have been happier with our experience. The staff were friendly, the hotel is excellently located within walking distance of Eyre Square ( 3 mins), the rooms were spotless and breakfast was first class. I would have no hesitation staying here again.

The reception staff were super friendly and helpful during our stay. Our room was very good quality. Nice big balcony. The room was clean on arrival, although there was a dirty towel left on the back of the bathroom door from the previous guests. We arrived on a Sunday, and as we walked to our room in the early afternoon, there were lots of dirty dishes/ plates and glasses in the corridors, along with bags of dirty linen. Surprisingly this wasn't cleared away until the evening. During the day on the Monday and the Tuesday - there was building work going on until 5.30pm. We were told it would stop at 5pm but it didn't. So in the room you could hear loud banging and drilling, which wasn't very relaxing. We did let reception know, but they were unable to stop the noise. The lift was also out of action on the Tuesday, which is awkward with baggage. The restaurant downstairs is supper flash, looks amazing, the staff were in a real rush though. We were there for two meals, and they tended to rush us through even though the place was pretty empty. I didn't think the breakfast was great. Also, we did the hotel meal deal where you eat each course in a different venue around Galway. It was a good experience, but the staff in the other venues had know idea on how the meal deal was supposed to work, so it was all a bit confused. Overall a mixed stay. Hotel location is great though.

Stayed here with friends for a few days and from start to finish ,this hotel was excellent. The room was gorgeous, and the shower was amazing...any staff we met were very pleasant,although Victor who served us breakfast each morning was so friendly and took time for a chat which was so lovely. His kindness and attentiveness was outstanding....
