    The G was fabulous. All the surprise little extras were amazing and we especially enjoyed the complimentary cup cakes! We will definately visit again, the staff were extremely polite and catered to our everyneed, and the room was exquisite.

    The setting of the hotel was not the best.

    Very good

    The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The rooms were well designed and the bed was exceptionally comfortable. Breakfast was very good.

    The location was a let down, the hotel was situated in a retail park aprox 10 - 15 minuits walk from Eyre Square. It didn't impress us from the outside.

    We stayed only for one night, but I found it very nice. Room was very spacious and nice, beds were good, maybe pillows are bit too big. Staff was very friendly and helpfull. Location is nice too, but its around 15-20 min on foot to the city centre.

    Superb

    The friendly fast efficient service...the spa was outstanding,very clean,great service and well laid out

    The food and wine we recieved was V.poor. The chips were not cooked properly,slightly cold also.the portions were V.small for the price.also the wine was recommended by the waiter so we went ahead with her choice but neither myself or my boyfriend could drink it!!! Also another down fall with the hotel is the lack of lifts.we stayed in room 242 and the distance from lift to hotel room was too far for any hotel.was surprised with this!!!

    Very good

    different....loads of colour .....bit too much for me.....but then again i maybe a bit old fashioned ........room excellent all good to excellent....security excellent.....porter excellent.....car park to rear and underground......could benefit from newer and bigger signs...maybe info for car park should be on web site.....hallways very dark............breakfast very poor...........bigger effort required in this area.

    too dark on corridors.....signage very poor....all about the hotel....breakfast needs more attention.....more one star than five.....

    Fabulous

    The freindly staff

    First impressions were good, but to start with we found pubic hair on our pillows on our first night, every morning for breakfast was a disaster. The first morning we got cold toast, asked for fresh toast and never received it. The second morning we received cold toast again, asked for fresh toast and some ketchup. We were over 10 minutes waiting for both by which time my wife's breskfast had gone cold. The waiting time in trying to order a drink from the bar and actually receiving it is a joke. And what annoyed us even more so was that the lower VAT rate was introduced but the price never changed which sees the hotel pocket the profit. We will never return or recommend. Honestly do not know how it has 5 stars

    Very good

    We have upgraded to a spacious suite with the view for the bay. Complementary water and good morning / evening care of the room. We had an open fire in our room and tv in front of the comfortable bath. Double shower with plenty of space.

    Poor selection of breakfast does not match with the rest of the hotel. One sort of meat, cheese and jam. Warm buffet does not start till 9am and we had to wait for a coffe over 10 min each of the 3 days we were there. Service is slow and once we received burned toast - taking into consideration the price - this should not take place.

    Good

    Room was very comfortable, especially the bed,had a great nights sleep we also liked the piped music into the bathroom, the dvd library and the fridge in the room, the room was also serviced every day, the pink hangers in the closet were a nice touch as was the pink umbrella we were given, when we asked for tea we were given complementary cupcakes which was nice, the design of the hotel lounge is very pretty and contemporary, but there was no actual bar, all in all a nice stay not really amazing which is what i expected it being a 5 star hotel, a bit too pretentious for me and i don't think we will ever return.

    when we checked in we were quickly told about breakfast times thats all!!! not told where the lounges/resturant were. The view from the room was dissapointing,i was also given a dirty spoon and pint glass at lunch, the spa prices in the hotel are very high the cheapest message i could find was 100e!to use the spa without a treatment was an extra charge of 30e, which i feel is a bit pricey considering the price we paid for the room, there was no tea making facilities in the room, dont go to this hotel unless you have money thats the way i feel after spending 3nights there,the breakfast was average, i feel its 5star for all the wrong reasons(design) and doubt i will return.

    What can you say about such an outrageously furnished hotel, except WOW! You either love it or hate it, and we love it. You have to see it to believe it, and there is always something to surprise and enjoy. It was our second visit and it did not disappoint either in accommodation, service or food, and frankly it was good value on a B&B basis for this quality.

    The location of the hotel is somehow not in keeping with its quality but it is convenient for the road system and the City centre. The lighting when entering from the car park and in the corridors is very dark (atmospheric?) and there are sudden changes from light to dark which tended to throw us, but this is a minor downside.

    I meant to fill in the evaluation card before leaving the bedroom but forgot therefore I'm glad to have this opportunity to let you know my views on your magnificent hotel. Your reception staff were so welcoming ,courteous and accommodating, nothing was too much trouble. The hotel decor is superb, so relaxing and inviting. The bedroom was amazing, I only wish I could have stayed longer. The food was first class and the waiters were just excellent, very friendly and attentive. Perhaps the service was a little too quick at breakfast, I ordered a small cooked breakfast and it arrived before I had time to sample the delicious fruit. It is a fantastic hotel , the only other hotel on a par (in my experience) is Lough Eske Castle in Donegal. Please do not publish my comments, they are just for your viewing.

    I have no complaints whatsoever.. Please do not put my views on your website

    Very good

    Loved staying in hotel. Very luxurious and unique decor. Rooms very comfortable. Welcoming staff very friendly and helpful. Lovely cakes in the room and cookies and milk for the children on arrival. Excellent location for Galway city centre. Breakfast was great.

    Had to look for staff to take orders for teas and coffees and lunch. Charged €6.50 for plain pasta for one of my children. Light lunch very expensive and not worth the money. No swimming pool or other entertainment for small children.
