Positive Reviews

You'll Feel Like Part of the Family

Guests say you'll feel right at home from the moment you step inside this hotel. From the warm greetings by staff, including the charming resident cat, to the kindness of all the staff, nothing is too much trouble. Guests appreciate that they will store you luggage if you arrive before check-in time.

Central Galway Location

Guests appreciate the central location of this hotel, as it's just a short walk to Eyre Square and just a bit farther away to the lively Latin Quarter at Quay Street. If you're planning to see a rugby match, this is a great location near the Sportsground.

Breakfast Delights Guests

Breakfast is described as "out of this world" and "the best cooked breakfast." Served in a bright dining room and cooked-to-order, you won't be disappointed. The hosts also provide free breads and cakes all day long, and you're able to use the microwave throughout the day as well.

Negative Reviews

Rooms in Need of an Update

Most guests note that rooms are small and ready for a refurbishment. They say the decor is dated and the furnishings are old and tired. Guests also mention that the mattresses are ready for replacement as they sag in the middle.

Lack of Lift

Be aware that this hotel does not have a lift and you'll have to carry your luggage up and down the stairs if you take a room on a higher floor. This may especially be a problem for guests with mobility issues.

Inconsistent Hot Water

Determining when you'll get a hot shower can be a bit tricky. Guests say that the water is quite often cold in the early morning, and that hot water is available at only certain times of the day.
