I accidentally book this thinking it was a hostel. But the hotel is very beautiful and the rooms are clean, neat, tidy, and very cute. They serve really good Irish breakfast in the morning for a good value. I was very impressed. It's right by the ocean as well, and by the pubs/bars.

The location was only a 10 minute walk from centre. It was also next to sea and a few nice pubs. Great, tidy room with excellent breakfast included. Owner was helpful and nice. Recommended! The room had also a bathtub, water boiler, cups and tea/coffee.

Rooms just nice for our family. we just need this to have a night stay and recover for us and children as well. Good sleep and easy to find the location. Free parking and really nice since we can get 2 rooms near each other because we travel in a big family.

This bnb was the ideal place to stay in during a visit to Galway. It's only ten minutes out of town in the lovely quiet part caller Salthill. The facilities themselves were excellent and the bed was SO comfy. Would have loved to stay longer. Would definitely go back again.

We stayed overnight here .A break away from work.It was very out dated .The decor leaves a lot to the imagination...awful . Old fashion but not in a nice vintage way it was just tacky .The breakfast was terrible so even that didn't make up for everything else,would not stay here again very disappointed.
