Plenty of other options in Galway
Definitely not a business hotel; more for tour groups. Spa only open from 10:00 to 18:00, which is pretty useless if you're on a business trip and working during the day. Ordered a pizza in the bar and it was extremely bland. I don't think I've ever had a pizza with less taste to it. I was quite hungry but could only eat half of it. Walking to the centre of town takes approx. 20 minutes.
To be fair, it was not a completely awful experience and hence the 2 stars instead of 1. But there are lots of other hotels in Galway and I can't think of a reason why you should not chose one of those instead of the Maldron.
