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.

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.

overpriced B&B - just dont

Posted 18-May-2014 on Hotels.com
I have been there 2nights and regret every minute of it .. Even tho you book room with view and balcony, staff who is trained to do what the boss say, tells you that you can have them lovely rooms for extra 15€ and the whole fun starts. Because you have booked already, its safe for the owner to push you around, dont let them. After all, id say you're paying already too much thru hotels.com than if you just randomly stopped at some B&B .. i wont come back, and so you shouldn't!!!

Close to Water; Not So Close to City Center

Posted 08-May-2014
Pros: Quite B&B with printing capabilities (key when flying RyanAir). Close walk to the ocean.
Cons: Staff was rather quiet. The credit card machine will likely be broken when you're there so plan on bringing Euros with you to pay for the room.
Location: Right across from the Atlantic. A nice stroll along the ocean brings you to a few nice restaurants. Further walk from city center.
Quant B&B location right on the water. Close walking distance to some restaurants; however the city center of Galway is about a 20 minute walk. The room was clean and comfortable. The bed had a heat warming blanket that was an added bonus. Parking is available in front of the B&B which is also key if you are driving around Ireland.

No hot water

Posted 03-Apr-2014 on Hotels.com
We arrived late after a long day on the road to be rushed around by the owner who was on her way to the pub and really wasn't phased by us being there. She gave us a few quick tips and rushed out the door. The bathroom was freezing with no heater in it. And we woke for an early start on the road to find no hot water. My daughter attempted a shower but was unable as the conditions were ICY ! The best part of this hotel was the beautiful sunrise across the road over the ocean on our way out of it.

So close, yet so far.

Posted 28-Oct-2013
Pros: Excellent location on the Salthill Promenade and within easy walking distance to City Centre.
Cons: Definetely request an upstairs room. Downstairs room is immediately adjacent to front door with window looking into parking lot.
We came into Galway for one night on a busy Saturday. The Atlantice View was in a great location with a reasonable price, but lacked the charm of other B&Bs experienced along our journey. We loved being able to stroll the promenade and walk into the city with ease, but our accomadation was more utilitarian than relaxing.

Lacking Hospitality

Posted 29-Sep-2013 on Hotels.com
Disappointed from the moment we checked in. The online pictures of the rooms drastically overstate their size! The host, who appeared to be a college age student) wasn't very hospitable. After check-in he went right back to the only computer and watched TV, which was fine, but when asked if we could use it, he said "the signal is very bad can you try later'. Shortly later as we left he was still on the computer. The topper was the continental breakfast. Everything was packaged and processed, with ill fitting lids on the cereal canisters and a bug trap on the top shelf of the buffet. Nothing was fresh except the old bananas and apples. Try your luck some where else.

What is a B&B?

Posted 23-Sep-2013 on Hotels.com
I thought that the difference between B&B and a hotel was that you get a personnal welcome and service from the owner. Well, here is an hotel. The reception is made by a foreigner, very polite and attentive by the way. For the rest,compared to a hotel, smaller room, less clean, no views (Atlantic?) and to add insult to injury they charge you an extra 5% if you pay by credit card wich left me with 105€ less of my money. Next time I won't make the same mistake. Big hotel groups will get my money.

Perfect spot for my trip

Posted 30-Jul-2013 on Hotels.com
This B&B was in a perfect spot for my trip. If you are expecting city center Galway, this is not in that area, which was a blessing since the center was very busy and noisy. You can walk 15 minutes to the city center (5 Euro by cab), or walk the other direction 15 minutes to Salthill. Cross the road and you are on the promenade. There is a balcony accessed from the landing of the second floor, with a nice view of the ocean. Breakfast is available, but there is a (reasonable) charge for it. Grocery store is about 5 minutes walk. Refrigerator in room is VERY small, but large enough to put leftovers from dinner in or keep drinks cold. Staff very friendly and helpful.
