When in Galway
Nice clean Hotel in central part of Galway. Easy to visit by car with own car park. Very friendly staffwith comfortable rooms

Exceptional 10.0
Great central spot
Great stay to be right in the thick of things. Underground parking was included though it did take some time to find a spot that wasn’t blocking anyone. Once orchestrated it was all good.
Samantha, ca1 night romance trip
Fair 4.0
Damp at best
Moist/damp room, all clothes we brought became damp and the sheets were damp each night when we went to bed. Not good circulation or a poor ventilation system... made the stay rather unpleasant.

Fair 4.0
Room felt/smelled cheap.
Honestly I felt pretty misled by the photos on this site - my room/bathroom looked nothing like most of the photos they show here. Room looked extremely cheap (and had that smell that all cheap hotels seem to have), sheets felt like plastic, and the bathroom had a gross shower curtain and the water temperature constantly fluctuated. I wouldn't recommend this hotel. I suppose I should have paid more attention to the 3 star rating than the pictures posted.

Good parking under the hotel accessed from the rear, good location and breakfast, but the rooms are compact.
