The hotel was comfortable and clean. The staff was great! They went out of their way to help us print vouchers, book tours and find our way around Galway! Food at the hotel was very tasty... a continental choice for breakfast would have been nice. The only downside for us was the distance from center city. It was a confusing 20 minute walk particularly at the end of long day.

Staff at this hotel are wonderful! We stayed at three hotels that are part of the larger Irish/English chains, and this was unquestionably the best. Although it is about a mile walk from the City Center, it is easy to catch a cab to and from the hotel.

Close to City Centre

We enjoyed this hotel! It was fairly easy to get to, their restaurant was decently good food, and it was close to the action. A cab ride to city centre cost less than 10 euro but is close enough that you can walk. The city is unique with an interesting vibe and a mix of young and old. Of all the hotels we stayed at in Ireland, this was probably the best.
