Booked 2 rooms and 1 wasn't available.

Posted 14-Apr-2017
I booked 2 rooms and when we arrived only 1 was available. We had to go to another hotel which cost significantly more. The Harbour Hotel didn't offer to pay the diffference or even pick up the fee for the cab to the other Hotel. On top of all of this, the Harbour was under construction and it was a mess. Needless to say we will never stay at the Harbour or recommend it. I completely understand that they made a mistake with the booking however, the fact they didn't compensate us for the huge inconvenience and extra costs is unexceptable.

Some construction taking place now, so lobby is occasionally loud and dusty. Rooms are good, but nothing special.

Close to main town

Posted 03-Apr-2017
Pros: Access to other local areas
Cons: Parking signage.
Very good hotel, early check in accommodated. Hotel was under renovation but this information was not relayed when reservation booked. Some noise through the day, did not start too early. Parking access for direct hotel site was nasty. Had to back around various points because folks were illegally parked. No information on other parking, actually asked a guest who was putting something in their car.

Sub par

Half of the rooms are situated right next to some apartments or other hotel. The rooms look directly into this hotel room. Also, they had construction going almost our whole stay so we were woken up by Jack hammers and given no notice beforehand. Breakfast was free which was nice. Had to pay for parking which wasn't too expensive. I guess my real gripe was the location.

Close to Galway Center

Posted 18-Mar-2017
Overall the Hotel was a good place to stay. The Hotel is within walking distance to Galway Center main street and harbor area. My only complaint is I was charged in US dollars when I asked to be charged in Euros. I was charged an additional 3%.

Perfect location

Posted 17-Mar-2017
Hotel is easy to find. Greeted with smiles from the staff upon checking in and throughout our stay. Had no problems printing out our boarding passes. Room was perfect size for two. Bed was comfortable. Downtown was only a 5 minute walk over the bridge. Breakfast had many options to choose from. The only negative is that the food could have been kept warmer (the hot foods) as it was pretty cool upon sitting down to eat it. Overall experience was great. I would stay here again.
