Galway, Ireland
Reviewed 13 August 2014

Nice hotel but too expensive for what it is and staff could be friendlier, this is not a realy 5 star hotel. I would recommend staying closer to the town there are much nicer places which are much cheaper. Didnt try the breakfast here but heard it wasnt great from another visitor.

People had told me this hotel was stylish but a bit impersonal. We went there as a family on a special offer deal and were delighted with it.

We stayed there at the weekend and the hotel is lovely but it’s not a 5 star. The decor is fantastic and really adds to the hotel. The staff were courteous and helpful at all times and did go above and beyond. It is let down by its facilities. Our room didn’t have a mini bar, not that we wanted...

Booked for a weekend stay for a wedding in Salthill. The hotel is very modern and contemporary and can be quite impressive on first glance, but areas are tired and in need of refurb/replacing. (Sofa's/armchairs in public areas were stained, torn etc). The service was very slick in all areas and extremely helpful and friendly. Big plus's inc free parking,...

I recently stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in the start of August during a week long trip to Ireland. There is not an easily accessible ramp to bring up your heavy suitcases, and not one person at the reception offered to assist myself or friend. This was a very difficult task as my bag was very heavy and...
