“Cozy little chalet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2012

This is a nice and cosy BB. We had taken a self catering chalet with a kitchenette. The rooms were clean, not as great as expected. The breakfast was reasonable. However the location was a bit off from the centre. Without a car you can get quite handicapped. Overall a nice place

Nothing fancy as pictures show but for the rate they charge it was very reasonable. Room were clean and adequte so was the bathroom. Breakfast was good but no atmosphere. The area itself is nice and quite and short walk to the beach. There's a supermarket nearby.
Overall just O.K

My friends and I stayed at the Amber Hill B&B and had nothing but great things to say about it. Staff was friendly and super helpful. Room was very clean and modern and was definitely very warm. The sitting room/common area was like someone's living room that you could hang out in. It's a bit of a walk to downtown Salthill and definitely a bus/coach ride or car ride over to Galway City Centre. Salthill is very sweet, quaint and quiet. So if you're the type to prefer a go go go surrounding, probably better to stay in Galway City but for some peace and quiet, definitely Salthill. The sheets were clean, the beds were very comfortable, and the bathroom was very clean. There was a coffee and tea tray in the room that was greatly appreciated and I think there was a fridge in our room. The breakfast: the free breakfast is toast and cereal and coffee. But if you can, splurge on the full Irish breakfast. IT IS DELICIOUS. I think Amber Hill has ruined breakfast for me. HUGE plate. Even if you do just get the breakfast bar, it's a LOT of food, a lot of variety and the people we met in the dining room were really nice too. Definitely will go again!

Also, highly recommend the Galway Tour Company. They stop right in front of Amber Hill.

Room Tip: Triple bed rooms are a better deal than single rooms or a single and double. We were traveling as a...

We stayed in Amberhill For 2 nights me my husband and 2 kids. I have to say it was a pleasure we arrived at a highly decorated B&B very warm & friendly... The owners were so kind in accommodating us & or kids. they could not have did enough for us. Breakfast was only 6 euro and my kids had all the cereal and fruit the could eat for free. I will definitely be staying here again and would highly recommend this B&B to anybody looking to stay in Galway..Thanks a million guys we will be back soon

I was travelling with my two children, 5 and 8 and a friend and we stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment for the same price as renting a room inside the BnB. It was a little chalet in the garden, with its own functional kitchen/sitting room, bathroom and two bedrooms with two single beds in each. It is decorated in a very warm and inviting manner. There is a HUGE TV in the sitting room and one in each bedroom. It was warm and very private. I would have no hesitation in staying here again as it was excellent value - I think it was 59 euro for the night for the four of us. Breakfast isn't included but you can get a full Irish breakfast for 6 euros a head, and there was plenty of cereal, juice, yoghurt, fruit, toast etc available. I would stay here again definitely. Not too far a drive from the centre of Galway and excellent value. Coffee machine available in the guesthouse for guest use at any time was a nice touch.

Room Tip: If the chalet is available it is very private and warm and lovely. Good for a family because there i...
