The Staff were were very helpfull and had time for us 24/7. I hope the owners of this hotel know they have great Staff.
Receptionists were very helpful and friendly. Handy location to viist Galway city without being in the middle of a city. Good breakfast
It was easy to find being on the main N59 towards Connemara. The bedroom was quiet and there was ample car parking space.
Comfortable and "old fashioned". Off season, minimal staff so bar/restaurant staff had to check-in and check out. Like early morning walk but was unable to leave as no one on duty in reception to unlock door. Liked hotel though!
The bed was comfortable.
Yes. The bar area was full of Midges, the barman said it was a result of the lake nearby. There was a smell of kerosene/must in reception. Reception closed early forcing all guests to travel through the bar to access their rooms. Laser was not accepted in the bar, this meant youhad to pay for drinks at reception. Breakfast was terrible, the food was dried out and cold, OJ was horrible. The whole hotel needs to be redecorated, the decor is very outdated and sparce. Th price is far too much for such a mediocor hotel. It's a 2 star at best.
