This B&B is not really that close the Galway or the beach. It is out of the way from any shopping or dinning. Be prepared for a very long walk or drive or bus or taxi. Breakfast is not included but offered for additional fee. The rooms are small but very clean. The mattress was of poor quality and I...

A good place to stay overall. Good accommodation , but not enough heat. However, I feel this B&B could go from good to great with a few simple changes. I ordered a poached egg which clearly was cooked in a microwave- dreadful! It is so easy to cook correctly. Coffee was poor also. Not sure I'll be back.

I stayed in Amber Hill B&B, Galway one Fri night in late Feb. While the room was small, it was warm, had a comfortable bed and facilities were acceptable. The cost was Euro 65 for a single room. As it was advertised as a B&B I assumed I would receive breakfast. I was disappointed however when I checked in, was...

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I have checked the reservation you made and can see that you booked the "Single Room Only" option. I don't know what you thought this may have meant but it was clearly stated that breakfast was an additional cost. You booked the room and would have also had to click...

Stayed here 1 night during a holiday in Ireland. It's a short bus ride from station and centre of town. The receptionist was very pleasant and helpful upon arrival. Pleasant room with ensuite, quiet. I left my iPod in the room and the one of the staff kindly posted it to me. Very grateful.

If you're ok with small and confined rooms and hallways, this place might be ok for you. This Bed and Breakfast was challenging to find; we missed it the first time and had to U-turn for another 10 mins to finally make it. The place is clean and presentable enough; rooms are modern and friendly in appearance. I just felt...

In a quite setting not far from Galway.You may walk to downtow Good breakfast varied and abundant and kind staff. We came from The Rise which was very bad. Tea service in the room. Small TV, parking place at the very door.

It is a bit far from the city center and attractions; but it was all we could find. Given that; it was very clean, the staff was very friendly. The common room was large and was very comfortable to spend some down-time. One complaint was that the room could have used an extra blanket as it got a little cold.

I stayed in Galway for one night (room7 on 6.8.2016) on my way to cliffs of moher from Dublin. And absolutely loved it. Spacious room, nicely decorated. Everything was nice and tidy. Friendly front desk staff. I would say this B&B is better than some of the hotels I stayed in. Thanks for great experience.

This was a cute clean B&B but the breakfast was extra. The bathtub was very slippery one person slipped in the tub. Rooms were very small but clean, beds not so comfortable. Was not in walking distance to City center or the sea. We had a car so it wasn't so bad getting around.

I stayed in room 41 on the ground floor. It was noisy as everyone went out through the door next to the room. The mattress stank! And was very old and thin. I found the whole scene very strange. The staff appeared to be a bit challenged, it is not owner operated.
