This was a very nice hotel on the docks in Galway. Easy walk to attractions, shopping and food. Staff is friendly at the desk and around the hotel. Parking behind is easy and affordable for 10 euro

Room (double or queen bed & a twin bed) had comfortable mattresses & pillows (half plush, half form). The staff was v accommodating to change our tv when it didn’t work. The maintenance guy was friendly & asked us the next day how it was working. Cleaning staff was friendly & gave us top sheets when asked. The hotel is a 7min walk from tourist attractions & the train station. Only a 4min walk from an electronics store to get a plug for my iPhone. Clean bathroom & spacious room for 2-3 adults. The sticky pudding dessert @ the restaurant in the hotel is 10/10. The breakfast buffet was excellent! The staff @ the restaurant (morning & night) were friendly- they even cooked me turkey bacon when asked. I highly recommend staying at this hotel. The only con is the walls are thin. A man in the next room sneezed at 5am and I woke up thinking he was at the foot of my bed. Later that day we heard him talking to his partner & then when they heard us talking they were trying to lock the adjoining door. Luckily it never opened. Then we heard sounds over night. Besides the thin walls it’s 5 star hotel. We would stay again. Also the reception staff made our trip wonderful by helping us plan our trip to the Cliffs. Thx kevin for being so wonderful.

Very clean and modern hotel, felt very safe. But you can hear every pipe near you. Anytime a neighbor uses the bathroom or takes a shower you can hear it.

This is a nice hotel. We were looking for something central and it was good walking distance to where we wanted to go. It was a bit more of an industrial area than I expected but the room and staff were great.

We stayed here for a couple nights last week during our trip to Ireland and were very happy. The hotel is about a 5min walk to the main shopping and restaurant area in Galway. There was a lot of construction going on across the street from the hotel, however, we didn’t find it a problem or notice any noise in our room. The room seemed a bit “thrown together” - sloppy painting of the walls, the bathroom was very plain, and the fan in the bathroom couldn’t be shut off if the light was on. There was a sign that said “pull string to turn fan on/off”, but there was no string? Not a big deal, just more of a nuisance. I wasn’t crazy about no carpeting in the room at first, but didn’t mind it after awhile. I loved the rain shower feature and there was shampoo, soap, lotion, etc. provided. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay here again.
