“Great apartments, even better customer service”

Stayed here with friends for New Years. We rented 3 apartments, one of which was a penthouse. Looks plain on the outside but the rooms were great. Clean, spacious, warm, and with plenty of room for all 15 of us to gather in the penthouse for pre-drinks. There was a small issue about a smell in the penthouse, but they sorted that out for us straight away once we brought it to their attention. We also needed extra blankets and mattresses for people and that wasnt an issue at all. Staff were extremely friendly and efficient. We felt very well taken care of.

I would definitely recommend this place to groups of people looking to stay near Galway.

“Quieter Location But Easy Downtown”
Reviewed December 21, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed in Salthill at Galway Bay. The room was comfortable, clean, and in a great part of the city. It was fairly quiet but there are some good bars/restaurants in the surrounding area. A taxi is only $10 or so to downtown galway or a 20 minute walk. The room itself was comfortable but the bed could have been a little more comfortable. The washer/dryer was convenient but I think you need an astro-physics degree to operate it. Overall I think that this is a great place to stay in Galway, particularly if, like us, you had a car. The parking is simple and it's easy to get out of town. The two bath set up worked great for the 4 of us.

This was a great price for a party of 4 requiring 2 bedrooms compared to a hotel for 2 rooms. Location was good, along the waterfront. A bit of a walk to city center though, but not too bad. The closest bus stop is on the same block. Building and furnishings seemed worn. Bedrooms and bathrooms were generous size. Would recommend for a family or small group.

My friend from Canada and I stayed at Galway Sea View Apartments for four nights of our Irish vacation. Having seen our accommodation online, we had fairly high expectations. We were in no way disappointed. The only complaints would be that we were promised a double and two single beds in two bedrooms, and that the double turned out to be two single beds pushed together covered with one sheet forming a makeshift King size bed (with an obvious ridge down the middle). The hot water was a little tricky but in the end ample.

The rooms were large and bright & the kitchen was well equipped and functioned well. The view of the bay was spectacular. The building was clean and quiet. We would recommend this apartment highly.

“GREAT VIEWS”
Reviewed October 18, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed here for 5 nights in early October. We arrived earlier than expected but this didn't prove a problem and we were promptly checked in. Even though we had booked a one bedroom apartment we ended up with a 2 bedroom which was extremely spacious although quite starkly decorated for such a brilliant position and didn't look anything like the ads.The views over the bay more than made up for the decor. We were able to watch the fishermen each afternoon on returning to the rooms. We also saw seals in the mornings. The apartments are in a great position on the Promenade which makes for a nice walk into central Galway and easy access for day trips in all directions around the area. We were woken one morning at 5.30 by the fire alarm and everyone evacuated. Although not a nice way to be woken someone came in 20 minutes or so and we were able to go back to bed.

“Beautiful view the rest is average”

We stayed for four nights in the three room penthouse apartment. The view is absolutely gorgeous the rest is no more than average and we were quite disappointed when we arrived after having seen the homepage and read the reviews at Tripadvisor. We had expected just a little bit of luxury bud didn’t find any at all. Though there was lots of space in the apartment the kitchen was tiny and not too well equipped
The third morning there was no water in the shower in one of the bathrooms. It was repaired but the next morning we had the same problem. The fire alarm started three times during our stay twice during the daytime and once at three o’clock in the morning. All were false alarms. Luckily the night alarm was the third alarm else we would have rushed out of the apartment in the middle of the night.

Many thanks for your thoughtful feedback - we appreciate all guest comments and suggestions. We do apologize for the issue you had with one of the showers in your apartment. Unfortunately maintenance issues do occasionally arise and we do our best to resolve any problems reported to us in the most timely manner possible. We also investigate all fire alarms that occur in the building, and unfortunately the aforementioned incidents were due to guests late night cooking. We take on board all feedback received, and hope to see you again in the future.
