The hotel is basic and perfect if you're only looking for an extremely central location and a place to sleep. The room itself was surprisingly large and both the room and bathroom were clean. The bed was comfortable. The shower pressure was pretty terrible, however. The room also wasn't cleaned even though we were there for two nights, although towels...

I stayed here on my own as I was meeting with friends. I booked it for the price, about € 65 for a single with continental breakfast included so my expectations weren't too high. Hotel is fairly basic but adequate. The staff were very friendly and even gave me the loan of a phone charger when I asked about where...

Lots of good sized mirrors with nearby...

We stayed in this hotel when visiting the Christmas Markets and it made our experience of Galway even better! It's a great hotel, very central and excellent value for money.

Great hotel service excellent and very clean but 2 people arrived for breakfast in their pyjamas. This should not be acceptable and staff should have told them so. The practice of people wearing pyjamas in public places having just rolled out of bed is a real lowering of standards and should not be permitted. Otherwise great hotel.
