          Nice stay”

          Okay. Biggest issue is parking. You get a nice rate staying in the hotel. But it is confusing. Drop your luggage at the hotel. Circle around trying to find the parking garage. Make sure you get a paper ticket! Outside of that, the hotel was clean and quiet especially given the location. The staff were very nice and helpful. Breakfast was nice too.

          From the moment we walked through the door we couldn't have had a better experience. The staff at reception were really friendly and helpful. The room was spotless and airy . The bar staff were very attentive . The pint of Guinness was lovely so the other half said. The wings we would recommend. Overall we had a great experience and would highly recommend and definitely will return.

          Great location ”

          Booked the room for a very good price. Based on other reviews I was expecting very little but it wasn't half bad - great location, breakfast served until 11.30am which suits the late riser and a large room. Staff were friendly. It seemed that the hotel has been making some effort to upgrade itself and the bathroom was nice but it showed up the slightly more dated room which could have done with some new carpet and bed frames but the mattresses were comfortable enough. It's a work in progress but if you get it at the right price it's definitely worth a go.

It was the most lovely visit as ALL the Staff were most welcoming and during this short stay made sure we had everything to make our visit comfortable.

          Old style hotel with rooms as you would expect - quite thin walls, mostly ageing fixtures and fittings. That said, it is a great location. We found the room to be reasonably clean, beds comfortable, and the bathroom appeared to have been renovated in the past couple of years. As long as you don’t expect a lot of frills or extras, I would be happy to recommend for 1 or 2 nights.

          Great hotel and perfect location just opposite the Eyre square as I was travelling to visit the Xmas market in Galway The rooms facing the Main Street can be noisy a bit but didn’t bother me as the room windows are double glazed (might be a hassle for light sleepers) Comfy beds with all amenities better than a 4star hotel. Breakfast was 10€ per person worth a try and good variety to order from.

          I stayed for two nights at this property. Location was great..easy to walk to sights and a super short walk to the train station for an early morning departure. The red carpeted hallways were a bit dated but the room was clean, nicely decorated and the bed was large. Front desk staff did a nice job. My only complaint is that I was woken up about 10 times during the night from doors slamming shut. Some of these were probably weekend party folks but I think the doorknobs lock in such a way that closing it quietly is not not possible. Maybe some new hardware could solve the problem.

          Stayed 1 night in December 2021

          Left high and dry”

          Bar closed without warning no last orders called 1 hour before closing. Left us with no option to go elsewhere so were left with no option but go to bed. Staff wouldn't even let us order a drink to the room. Spoiled our visit to be honest.

          Very good”

          Staff were great but rooms are very dark & too hot. Tried to adjust the heating following the instructions but it still went back to the original setting. The website is misleading as the room I booked was nothing like the room I was given
