  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities

The location is nice and on the seaside, though a little bit away from the heart of Galway, unless you have a car or bus ride. We went in the winter, so weather wasn't great but the beachfront is across the street and must be awesome in summer.

Both managers were very helpful and did their best for us. Dudnt like the fact that expedia didnt let us cancel so we went and it was a waste of tome and money in this critical time.no reflection on hotel they understood our worry and concerns and had curtosy to tefund 1 night expedia have not compensated us in any way. To be fair expedia did process hotels refund promptly but we were stil 206 pound out of pocket for spending 2 days in a room which they could have had curtosy to compensate us in these hard times thank you
