                • The pool area is great and the location of the hotel is very good within walking distance to Salthill. Service is fantastic and room size very generous. The food is delicious and the gym also is excellent and clean too.

                  Decor a bit outdated, rude staff and water in Jacuzzi was a little tepid and jets not that powerful. Sauna seats were not very secure, one waitress in particular was very unfriendly.

                • Lovely and peaceful near enough the city, fantastic Hotel, the lobby and reception area is very nice and bar is ok. Not a good idea to shower at night as there is an apartment block within clear sight of the shower.

                  Just weird combinations of poor quality food, very expensive to staff here and room was cool and would liked the dinning room open for dinner.

                • Nice location, very good value and free Internet in the lobby's Business Room. Very welcoming staff, clean comfortable bedroom and food was excellent and priced well. Pool was spotless.

                  Children unsupervised running around the hotel corridors and bar service rather slow.

                • Very nice leasure centre, great hotel and the breakfast was of buffet style and was very good. Staff were very friendly and room was perfect. The food was delicious.

                  Beds were worn out and very uncomfortable.

                • Food and leisure centre good, warm welcome. The lobby and dining areas are lovely, friendly staff,nice restaurant and out of hustle bustle of citybut convenient to same.

                  Worst hotel trip ever, drinks ordered at bar in wedding function room not delivered to table after 30 mins and the pool is great as we have a 2 year old boy.

                • Foyer area is spacious and the hotel itself is a credit to all concerned for clenliness variety for breakfast would be nice as all looked very ordinary.

                  The decor was old fashioned and did not appear very clean, the staff were rude. Shower was a little weak and bar food was expensive and very slow service. Large pool was cold.

                • Very good for Galway city, best Hotel Ever and the lobby and bar and general public areas looked very nice. Staff at reception are very professional and friendly, free internet access is a very convenient facility, food is great. The gardens are fabulous.

                  Decor is dated, e230 per room is ridiculous for the standard we got and in the restaurant you would hardly describe the meal as gourmet.

                • Leisure centre well facilitated and relaxed atmosphere. Old world style good food nice staff location, reception was big and i loved the room we got apparently was a honeymoon suite. The meal was adequate and service at dinner was friendly and efficient.

                  The hotel is dated.

                • Leisure centre very good and eyre Square. Once again, nowhere near its accredited rating, xmas decorations very nice and great wedding Very friendly staff Stayed night before wedding very comfortable. The room was amazing and the breakfast was excellent. The dinner menu was fantastic and well presented, checkout was fast and efficient, the gym and the pool was lovely too.

                  The ensuite and shower area was very poor indeed, the hotel itself was not very attractive. The water was barely warm and bar was small and had no music. The food came up cold and spa was tired.

                • Overall my stay was satisfactory, staff were friendly and hot water ran out around 11am on a Thursday morning.

                  The food in the hotel was lovely and the prices are not extortionate.

                • The atmosphere was friendly, staff at reception were apologetic later that evening and the room was massive and had such luxury. The food was lovely.
