I visited this hotel following a business trip to Galway. The hotels location is great being around 5 minutes from the central bar/restaurant area, ample car parking locally if required. Smallish gym but adequate if no one else is using this. Breakfast was buffet style with plenty of choice, excellent. Staff attitude was first class - nothing to much trouble....

The staff were only ok - not over friendly. One day we went to front desk to ask something and found two of the female receptionists discussing / challenging each...

On arrival at this hotel I got the most wonderful welcome by the friendly reception staff. This hotel is very pretty to the eye, extremely modern and trendy interior continues from the reception area to the restaurant/bar into the hallways and rooms.
