Jill scored 3 / 5 on 19/11/2021

Website did say basic but wasn't even plug socket by mirror. Pillows like rocks. No glasses in bathroom & also no extraction fan everywhere steamed up when using shower.There 3 days, breakfast first day waited 15 mins & was stone cold. On 2nd morning everything overcooked, scrambled egg was like rubber. Had bsr meal first evening which was lovely. All staff extremely friendly & helpful & despite breakfasts would use hotel again as so central.

Our room was small but we got a bigger room was much better

Hilary scored 3 / 5 on 03/10/2021

Hotel room was very basic, but was clean. Staff were very friendly. Breakfast on first day wasn't great, but was lovely the following 2 mornings. €12 daily for car park was on top of hotel price, was reduced to this by hotel, usual price is €20 in 24 hours. We stayed in the car park at the back of hotel. Hotel is nicely situated close to everything, but room started in needs updating.

Eleanor scored 2 / 5 on 01/10/2021

Sarah scored 4 / 5 on 16/09/2021

Great experience in the hotel. Breakfast and dinner was delicious and staff were very friendly. Great location as just off Eyre Square, 2 min walk to the shopping centre and next to train station. We didn't have any issues. Room was bit small but was clean and comfortable. Would defo book a stay again.

staff lovey rooms very clean food lovely only drawback was no air con during warm weather.

Mary scored 4 / 5 on 08/09/2021

We got confirmation of our reservation by text, but when we arrived at to check in at the hotel there was no record of this on the hotel’s system. This was corrected only after the receptionist checked in other guests ahead of us. Next morning our booking for breakfast hadn’t been given to the waitress serving breakfast. At check in we were given a quiet room as requested on the first floor, which was small but adequate(112).The possibility of a 4th floor room was suggested & we got the impression a this would have been a better option and possibly not given to us as we got a good rate in comparison to the rate which was given over the phone. There was no WiFi available & any improvement suggested by the receptionist didn’t work. Cups but no saucers were available in the room which is a pretty poor standard of service. The duvets & bed linen were very comfortable. Breakfast was good as was the standard of service. We will have reason to be in Galway on a regular basis in the future, and will not be interested in this hotel for the reasons outlined. This a pity considering it’s ideal location.

Olive scored 4 / 5 on 20/06/2021

Staff were ever so friendly and helpful. Especially the breakfast staff. Couldn’t do enough for you. Room was tidied daily. Could do with more than 1 elevator. Wouldn’t stay on 4th floor again due to noise of birds. Other than that a most pleasant stay and the staff alone would make me return.

Debra scored 5 / 5 on 20/06/2021

Very pleased with our visit to eyre square hotel..... staff very attentive especially the girls serving breakfast and serving in the bar. Nothing was ever too much trouble for them.. Breakfast was lovely, plenty pots of extra tea. Hotel was run very efficiently through the covid crisis and even though the hotel was following the government guidelines we still has a relaxing and happy vacation. Would definitely return and book through Lidl breaks

Deurdre scored 3 / 5 on 04/08/2020

The renovated bedrooms are lovely however I would be very unhappy if I got one of the older rooms. Breakfast was a bit unorganized , a lot of tables leftuncleared, it would help if one if the staff was given the task of clearing and cleaning all tables leaving others to take and bring orders , needs someone to take charge and supervise , however the hotel is going through a renovation and is a lovely building with huge potential . Location excellent

Mary scored 3 / 5 on 26/07/2020

Location of the hotel is excellent right in Eyre Square. The hotel would benefit from renovation to the rooms as the decor is dated also the toilet door is damaged which isn't very inviting. Breakfast was excellent and staff are lovely.

Jennette scored 4 / 5 on 17/07/2020

Very central, staff were friendly and getting used to the system in place for covid. The first night I found the room cold so I asked for a quilt and was immediately supplied with one. I didn't realize I had to pay for parking, it was discounted for the weekend anyway so I was lucky. The breakfast was good.
