A Budget Friendly Stay in City Centre
The locate of Hotel is in prime location at Eyre Square. Everything is close by like shopping, eat out and nice pubs. The bus stop is a few steps away to take you around Galway. There is the Largest Supermac in Ireland adjacent to the hotel. The in house restaurant is good, especially for breakfast. The dinner wasn't up to the mark though. The staffs are really helpful and responsive with your query.

Good 6.0
Not very enjoyable
Arrived an hour and half after check in should have been available, room was not ready for another half hour. No towels in room. Room very dark as only a small recessed frosted window in room. Very noisy due to busy area of corridor and beer kegs getting moved about in back yard from early morning

Stayed here on Tues 1st September while visiting Galway, I have stayed here now a few times and cant fault it ... Staff on the front desk checking in and out were very polite and very helpful, I had asked for just a simple single room and when i arrived in my room it was large with almost a king size bed ... very comfy !! I will be staying here in future . Highly recommended
