I had requested a room with a double bed, but was initially given a room with two singles. However, once I let the hotel staff know, they quickly changed my room...

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here on Monday and Tuesday night. Overall the hotel was very clean and the location was ideal- a 5 minute drive from Salthill beach and 10 minutes to Eyre Square.

Booked an overnight stay in the hotel. Receptionist on duty was friendly but that's where the niceties ended. The bar staff weren't helpful no eye contact and when I requested a certain drink I was shot down in such an abrupt manner that "we don't have that drink". We actually left the hotel and went to another one in town...
