Disappointing

Posted 28-Oct-2014
Cons: The fact that the wing was a work in progress and we were not notified .
I booked this hotel as I stayed there a lot over the summer and always had a really good experience. We were put in wing D which in my opinion wasn't part of the hotel at all. The corridors went finished there was a pool table in the middle of the corridor and there was kids clubs going on into the evening. Fantastic for people with families but not so fantastic when you just want to chill out. Our room was freezing and we overlooked a yard full of bins. I booked this for my boyfriend as a surprise for his 30th birthday and I really felt awful .. Any time before I stayed in the Connacht I had a pleasant experience. I was really hoping for the same again.

Nice hotel - good food

A good hotel conveniently located. Busy restaurant so the service was a bit slow for dinner. However the food was good and worth waiting for.

Pros: Clean, comfortable room. Generous breakfast buffet.
Cons: Better management.
Location: It's an easy twenty minute walk from the center of Galway. It's right on a bus line, as well.
The Connacht is located a walkable distance from the busy center of Galway. The room was good, as was the included breakfast, which is served as a buffet. Dinner in the main restaurant was a mixed bag: the food was good, but the service was very slow, apparently because of an odd division of labor between the order-taker and the food-bringers. More than twenty minutes after we placed our order, the former came by to ask how things were and was surprised to discover that we'd not yet received our food. Fortunately, the kids were in a good mood and we had been playing Hangman to pass the time. But similar dysfunctions appeared at every turn, suggesting that the staff, for all their good will, are poorly managed--that the operational systems are fragmented and inefficient. So, be prepared for delays at check-in, on arriving at the restaurant, on getting your meal . . . . The kids also balked at the, to us, unusual requirement that everyone wear a swim cap in the pool, regardless of hair length. I don't know if this is typical for hotels in Ireland.

Hotel Staff Very Helpful

Posted 14-Aug-2014
Pros: The location, the facilities, the restaurant and, most of all, the staff.
Location: Two bus stops near by. Go to the road and turn right or left; your choice. Grab the #409 bus and get off by the bus stop. There's lots to do there!
I was most impressed by the staff's desire to help out. The room we were first assigned to had 3 single beds whereas I'd requested a single and a double. Once I informed them of this, however, they very graciously prepared another one for us; no fuss at all. We also had some missing luggage and the hotel customer care representative was instrumental in locating it. Awesome service! The restaurant staff were also excellent, as was the food.
