Stayed here for two nights at the beginning of the week as a wedding gift. Rooms were modern and comfortable-small though. Road noise in the morning was very loud-a gas powered leaf blower and street sweeper (?) were very noisy each morning around 6am. While our bathroom looked nice there was no 'sealed door' so privacy was lacking. Our tub...

We stayed in The House Hotel for a weekend in September and from start to finish it was fantastic. We were greeted by lovely reception staff and checked into our room which was really comfortable and clean. The décor of the entire hotel is really funky and vibrant, from the reception to the room. We had dinner that night in...

The House Hotel is an excellent place to stay in Galway. There is no on-site parking which is a bit cumbersome and there is no place to load and unload your luggage. The decor is a little too modern for my tastes with lots of pink and black etc. The staff is friendly and accommodating. We had a deluxe room...

We had an absolutely amazing time at our stay at the House Hotel. For location you really can't get better; it is situated just at the bottom of Quay Street and right beside the Spanish Arch. As soon as you walk through the doors you are greeted with a cosy yet modern choice of decor, not usually a fan of...

This hotel has a good location, high quality rooms (although the bathrooms are a touch small), and high quality service. There is a restaurant/bar on the premises which has an interesting and well put together aesthetic. The overall package stands well above the usual standard of hotel in this price bracket...,

The staff and location are top notch. Breakfast is really good. The room was fine and was quiet. The reception staff went the extra mile to make us comfortable and to give us restAurant ideas. The lobby area is cheerful.

We were welcomed at checkin by a girl called Martha/Magda. Very welcoming and professional and advised us we were given a complimentary upgrade to a deluxe room. The room was great but still very small. I can't find fault with the bed. It was very comfy. At breakfast next morning, staff couldn't have been more helpful. My husband took advantage...

Very friendly greeting on arrival and efficient reception. Room was small, so those who need the wide open spaces may feel claustrophobic. The standard of room was excellent.
