Fabulous location for tourists, restaurants, shops and entertainment on your doorstep. Hotel staff were friendly and engaged in conversation. The buffet style breakfast was tasty and there was a good selection to choose from. The room was clean and modern. Disappointed over the parking arrangements, a public car park next door. The €10 advertised covers you from 6pm till 9am, anything over and additional charges apply. There was also a tourist bus that looked like a train that was sometimes parked in the drop off area outside the hotel. This made it really difficult to unload bags when we arrived as the hotel is situated on the main road into Galway. Overall happy with the hotel and would stay here again.
