Stayed here for one night. I had a meeting with a few colleagues. Check in was ok but nothing special. Couple in front of me were registering a complaint. Not good to do this with other guests around. At lunch there was a group of 7 of us. We waited 20 minutes to be served. At one stage one of...

The only drawback to this hotel is its location. If one doesn't have a car, it is a bit of a walk to the center of the city. However, it is in a lovely suburban setting and there's always lots of action -- groups meeting there or people just sitting around the lobby, where one can be served from the...

I stayed her for a trip to NUI Galway. It is a little out of town and a taxi will cost around £9.00. However this can be offset by the price, the free parking and WIFI and use of the fantastic Leisure facilities. I used the pool and the gym. The pool has a 20mtr pool with spa etc and...

My wife and I have just returned from a 4 night stay at this hotel. We had a very pleasant stay. Our room (406) was spacious and clean. The hotel itself is in a lovely residential area in Salthill and it takes about 25 minutes to walk to the Spanish Arch. Breakfast was first class with an extensive buffet and...

My son and I stayed there for 2 nights. What attracted me about the hotel was the fact that it was surrounded by lush greens everywhere. Room was very cozy, spacious, had free wi-fi, service was good, had all the modern amenities. It's a 4 star hotel, so you will not be disappointed, they live up to their name. I...

The Ardilaun Hotel is very much "old world" hotel with all the modern facilities like swimming pool and Spa. The staff are very helpful and friendly, rooms good, and meals very nice. It is a little outside the City but only a €6/5 taxi trip. Always nice for a short break, will be back

Just spent one night in this hotel. We checked in around 1pm , the hotel wasn't particularly busy but my husband stood at the reception desk for about 3 mins being completely ignored by the female receptionist. She didn't even make eye contact but faffed around with the phone and PC before eventually saying gruffly "checking in" ? No warm...
