Great location poor attitude of staff

Posted 03-Oct-2016
Pros: The location and facilities
Cons: Staff attitude
Location: Great restaurants and on the beach
The hotel and facilities were perfect, the staff on the other hand were less than welcoming which surprised us as it was the first time since we have been in Ireland that this has happened. Talking with other guests who were Irish and have stayed there before said the same thing. They come back for the hotel not staff, and hope each time for a change of staff attitude

Great location

Posted 01-Oct-2016
Pros: See above!
Cons: Public lounge areas are dated and not as clean. While room was clean and large it the perfumed cleaning supplies used were very offensive to me.
Location: Go see the swimmers and the diving platform, or better yet take the plunge yourself. Drive to Connemerra especially Clifden and take the sky drive.
Great location for walking the prom,and walking into Galway. Also great for driving trips because you are out of the city with free parking and with easy access to Connemerra. Be sure to check out lovely garden next door. We really enjoyed the Trad on the Prom show which is conviently performed at the hotel. The pool/locker area is recently updated and lovely.

Hotel rooms need a serious facelift. Dingy, outdated. Hotel had a nice beach front location but the walk to town was just that little bit too far so required a taxi.

Nice hotel close to the beach and downtown

Posted 11-Aug-2016
Pros: Location.
Cons: In very good condition for an older, established facility.
Location: Beach, restaurants, amusement parks. Short drive or walk to the downtown. Lots to visit in the Galway area, including the Cliffs of Moher.
Enjoyed our stay. Rooms were clean with great views, staff was professional, food was excellent, across the street from the beach with beautiful adjoining garden with paths and fountains.
