B&B (with no Breakfast) should be called B&

Posted 10-Sep-2014 on Hotels.com
The B&B was a huge disappointment -- based on the Hotel.com images. If you are looking I urge you to move on to another listing. Our room did face the sea but was extremely small (unlike the photos) and we had to be careful not to hit our head's on the low ceiling. There was no bathtub in the room as advertised. They charge 5% for a credit card and breakfast is €5 for continental (which other reviews say is awful) and €10 for full Irish. Should one not assume that a Bed and Breakfast includes breakfast? This is not a B&B . . . it is a bad motel. Stay away! The proprietress was also very unfriendly when we checked out and forked over our cash to avoid the insult of paying more for the room.

Disappointed

Posted 02-Sep-2014 on Hotels.com
We booked our room and the confirmation details sounded grand- but we did not get what was in our confirmation. The room was suppose to have a patio (it was down a floor), a bathtub which it did not, a television with satellite it was broken and had to be replaced after the owner tried repeatedly to fix it wih us in the room which he had to do while on one of the beds, the sheets were suppose to be 100% Egyptian cotton and they were 50/50 polyester... We wee under the impression that there was laundry services but it was at a charge of 10 euros which the staff person had to look into to get a price- this should all be listed in their ad on hotels.com, Chipped glassware and lipstick, no soap in the bathroom even after complaining!! For 149 euros a night we were extremely a free with the quality!! We could have stayed down the road for half the price but decided to splurge on the last leg of our journey- we felt Thorouly ripped off. We were told by the owner that they cannot guarantee which rooms you get when booking - to which I asked why did it give you options in rooms when booking then??? With no adequate reply. He said we should have felt lucky being by the ocean- but with a major road between us and the Oceanside it quite noisy and a 15-20 walk into city centre!!! After 2 weeks in Ireland we had stayed at many budget B&B's and that's what this place felt like bit they charged double the price!!! Would have rather stayed above bar.

Pleasant and quaint

Posted 02-Sep-2014
I booked the hotel because I am a visiting international student who needed accomodations while I house hunted. The staff (particularly the house boy) were lovely, and brekkie was both quality and well presented. The room was clean and comfortable, the wifi worked so well, and the loo was clean and well cared for. Overall my stay was very comfortable, and more than I expected. Staff was very accommodating! Location was awesome! Just off the ocean and near the bus line into the city centre.

No Breakfast and No View

Posted 07-Aug-2014 on Hotels.com
I don't understand how they can call themselves a Bed & Breakfast when breakfast is not included in the rate. Our reservation confirmation said we had a room with a water view but when we checked in we were stuck in a room in the back with no view. The view from the balcony in front was partially obscured by trees anyway. Great location but way overpriced for what we got.

Superbe bed and breakfast

Posted 16-Jul-2014
A 10min du centre de Galway, a 5min de salthill, le b&b est bien placé, avec une vue imprenable sur l'atlantique. Le petit dejeuner est tres bon, pour 7€50 prenez l'irish breakfast ! Les chambres sont spacieuses et propres. Le personnel est arrangeant, pour vos excursions, vos questions, votre départ ... Je conseille vivement!

Atlantic View Salthill Galway

Posted 07-Jul-2014
Pros: They were accommodating to the fact that we had to leave very early the next day and we still managed to get some breakfast.
Location: Location was excellent in Salthill. Superbly close to the beach and also a quite area to get good kip at night.
Stayed in the Atlantic view for one night. Excellent location in Salthill. Very comfortable beds and quiet location. We had to leave very early the following morning and the staff kindly left out food for us to make our breakfast the next morning before setting off.

Espantosa experiencia

Posted 06-Jun-2014 on Hotels.com
Horrorosa . Hubo un problema con la reserva por parte del Hoteles com y (ya que yo pagué la reserva con antelación y ellos no informaron al lugar) y la dueña fue sumamente desagradable conmigo y en vez de ayudar fue todo lo desagradable y maleducada que alguien que se dedica a la hostelería nunca tiene que ser llegando incluso a gritarme al teléfono. En todos mis años viajando nunca viví nada igual. Tuve que llamar yo a España y estar más de 1 h al telefono para solucionarlo. La habitación además sumamente cara el doble que otros bed and breakfast de alrededor que además sí incluían el desayuno. Nunca llevaría a alguien a allí

fairly basic but great location

Posted 03-Jun-2014 on Hotels.com
The hotel is fairly basic but it is in the perfect location in Galway. It is just in between the beach and the city centre, easy walk to both, but also just out of the way enough that you won't have any loud noises at night.

Over priced

Posted 26-May-2014 on Hotels.com
Ideal location for access to city but room was tiny for the price, not the cleanest and breakfast not included. Lacking the hospitality we experienced in other Irish guest houses.
