My husband and I went to The Galway Bay for Easter. When we booked in at we were asked what time we were having dinner as the dining room was nearly booked for that night.We went out to eat as it was good Friday.The room was clean, It overlooked the carpark.which was not ideal. The next morning i was awoken by children running up and down the corridor. breakfast was delivered to my room and was on time.That night we went to the lobster pot dining room for dinner, I know they were very busy but thats not my problem.We sat for 20 minutes before a wqiter came near us.we gave our order and I wanted a glass of white wine which waited half an hour for. Dinner was ok the chicken was dry. Easter Sunday we went to a football game and decided to eat that night in the Bistro in the hotel. We went in and were told we would have to sit in a certain place as a kids club was coming in for tea. No way. We went to the pub belonging to the hotel and the only place to sit was with people peering over at us looking at a football match. We stayed as dinner was already included in the price. .....Big mistake ordered soup first atter an eternity it came out STONE COLD I called a waiter over abd sent it back. another lo///ng wait it came back with the same bread I had taken a bite of..Next my steak arrived I turned it over, black as coal called the manager over and he said Jesus Christ thats cremated and took it away. My husbands fish and chips were ok, I ordered them instead.I ate the fish. We asked to see the dessert menu . and ordered coffee to go with the choc cookie we ordered. Coffee arrived when we finished.What really bugged me was the glares i was detting from the wait staff They were busy so what.To be fair I filled out the comment card. and 2 days ago my husband got an e-mail offering us a free week-end the vouchers in the post apparently.
Will I go? maybe I will as the week end cost nearly 500e I will let you know how I got on.
