Stayed 2 nights here, a Thursday and a Friday. Lovely room, comfy bed but a bit short if you're 6ft or more.Breakfast outside door and nespresso coffee in room nice touches.Staff very good, offered to carry our bags to our 3rd floor room as lift out of action. According to to one staff member it's out of action a lot....

This was a fantastic hotel. Everything has been thought of. Fabulous room and everything brand new and finished to a high standard. Netflix in room was great and the breakfast bag was a lovely touch. Will definitely recommend to friends. We stayed mid week and got a fantastic rate for the quality of the room.

On check-in we were informed the lift was not operating, however two kind staff brought our luggage to level 3 for us. The breakfast bags in the morning were a welcome treat after a night...

Really liked this hotel, location was perfect for the city, decor was really slick and modern and the room had everything you'd need. The breakfast was a little bag with juice, yoghurt, muffins and fruit, a really nice touch. The rooms are over a late bar so it can be noisey but that's to be expected in that part of...

The rooms were excellent and is obvious care and taught went into the design. From the free nespresso pods, netflix access and complimentary orange juice and...

Have stayed in both the Spanish Arches and The Residence during all our trips to Galway. The new re-furbished bedrooms are beautiful and very fashionable. Staff are extremely professional and will do everything to make your stay enjoyable. I love this hotel and would highly recommend.

We stayed for one night and really enjoyed it. The decor is modern and the bed and pillows were very comfortable. We had a slight issue with our door but it was soon taken care of by Julie who was an excellent host. The little touches were great..nespresso machine, breakfast bag delivered to our door. The price was very competitive...

Stayed for 2 nights for a weekend away, rooms had just been refurbished so still had that newness although little was spent on upgrading the lift as we spent 15 minutes stuck in it (with a lashed up doorbell for an alarm) after checking in, had to call reception to send assistance but that wasn't going to put us off,...
