Excellent fast service, very safe with the covid restrictions. Beautiful rooms.

Stayed 2 nights in Jul 2020

4/5 Good

Very good except for room 411.

Hotel is very nice, only problem we had was room 411. Room 411 is part of an addition to the hotel. R 411 was nice a little crowded and a decent view, bed was comfortable, etc. That night, there as a down pour and I was awoken at 2:00am by the sound of dripping water. I called the front desk and they told me they were not aware of any issues concerning leaks, but would come a take a look. While they were coming up I decided to look for the leak. To my surprise, I found it and it looked like they had found it too, there were at least 2 towels placed underneath the leak. When the hotel staff came up and verified the leak, they moved us to a new room that was not part of the new addition and they lets us stay there the next night without additional charge (The room was clearly an upgrade). The staff was very nice and in the end they stay was nice, I just would say careful if they put you in room 411.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet

Well done Hotel Meyrick

This hotel met and exceeded our expectations from start to finish. The location in Galway is perfect. Valet Parking is a real bonus as parking around Galway can be tricky. The hotel design/decor is modern and tasteful, but the history of the building seeps through creating a memorable experience. The Hot Tub and Jacuzzi on the roof were a welcome break and the breakfast is second to none. I would 100% recommend this hotel. *****
