“Harbour Hotel Galway”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2012

Stayed here for 2 nights in May for a couples break, have stayed here before, its very central and you can get it reasonably priced.The hotel is clean, comfortable and functional.The staff were very nice in reception and the bar and restaurant in the morning. We had bar food once which was grand, but for a special meal I would recommend eating out.The parking is handy and we paid €5 a night.I really dislike hotels charging for parking but it is very common.The cooked breakfast on the first morning was disappointing, it was very tasteless, this was included in our rate, but if I was paying for it separate I would have asked for my money back, unfortunately it was poor.On the second day had the croissants, and breads and they were good. I think the best thing about the hotel is the location.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a view and high up to avoid noise

Stayed here one night with my family,lovely modern hotel with really comfortable beds,staff very friendly and helpful,good location just a few minutes walk to shops and bars,just one problem our room service breakfast came without napkins,salt and pepper and sugar and with some errors in our order but when I phoned reception this was corrected swiftly,would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for one overlooking the harbour otherwise you maybe overlooking the car park.

I stayed here twicw in the last few weeks once for my sisters birthday where we ate in the restaurant. The Food was fab the restaurant itself was lovely and our waitress was just fantastic i think here name is Tina.

The second time we stayed here was for the may bank holiday sunday night, Galway is the place to be brill weekend.
One member of staff stood out, He's name is Kevin he was a trainee on reception and he really bent over backwards for us running all over the hotel looking for condtioner for my sister.
The only negative part for me of this hotel is that the residents bar shuts at 3:30 am not good when your still thirsty.

Beds are really comfortable

Stayed here last weekend as part of a small hen group and couldn't have been made feel more welcome. A tad off the beaten track in terms of location, but less than 10 minutes walk to town centre so fine with me!

Staff friendly at each encounter, especially the Night porter/Night Bar staff who were polite and curteous despite the time of night/morning!

Breakfast Hot & tasty, Bed sooo comfy and shower was great.

Carpark for just €5 was a steal and our request for 1pm checkout was confirmed without hesitation!

Ate dinner in the House Hotel up the street which is a great choice for groups - food was delicious and good value!

If I had to nit pick - the bathroom needed a bit of a lick of paint, bath chipped and the edges of the mirror was a bit unsightly. Also, our room looked onto the Carpark - would try to opt for a better view next time!

This aside, I would definately return to this hotel! Great choice!
