Stayed in this hotel twice now. As I love Galway. The hotel reception, bar, restaurant and pool is very nice. The hotel is obviously improving on customer service, and went out of their way, to assist guests. However, at the busy breakfast hour they could do with extra staff. I find that in Galway they don't cater for families as...
