people and the view no complaints
It is a nice place nearby theGalway Bay with a wonderful view, and the service is quite good. Wow, it is extremly clean!
Pedro and his wife are great hosts ,friendly and helpful. The place is beautiful and clean, room warm and hot shower. Well situated on the Galway bay.
the service was excellent and the family running the place very kind. Breakfast (included in the price) was perfetct.
Excellent stay here. We had a triple room and it was spacious. the owner was very helpful. great stay.
The owner did a nice job of taking care of our needs. The bed is very firm and uncomfortable
The excellent service and breakfast.
It was cosy and practical, because It was not in the city center, but really near going by foot. The staff were really helpful.
Friendly and helpful hosts. Fantastic breakfast and comfortable rooms. Easy walking distance to Galway city centre.
beautiful seaside location, the city is easily reachable in 15 minutes by foot, free parking directly in front of the house, very clean rooms, very friendly and family atmosphere, great Irish breakfast. Bathroom is very small, the sink was loose
The hotel is wonderfully located very close to the center of Galway and all activities. while being a 1-10 min walk from anything you could want, its also quiet. The staff was very nice, helpful and friendly. The beds were fairly uncomfortable, the amenities are not terrible new, but are current enough to satisfy and certainly high quality in galway.
Location Room was very hot (it was the middle of Jan!!)
The location is great, right in the city center and only 15 minute walk to the beach and it is a very clean and comfortable. Stayed here be fore and would stay here again the next time I stay in Galway.
Nothing Room, Bathroom facilities, lack of heating
calm / kindness
The hotel is well located, walking distance to many shops and restaurants. The staff is very kind and the rooms are clean and affordable. no complaints
The location was excellent. The bed was to small.
Staff very friendly, professional and prompt in accommodating requests. Do Not Disturb sign and. Make Up Room sign practically identical. If one grabs Do Not Disturb sign at night one can easily grab wrong sign (as I did) and be awakened early by the maid thinking I wanted my room cleaned. Very aggravating!!
This was a lovely hotel in a great location. The staff was great & rooms were very clean & comfortable. We loved that you could walk to everything-restaurants & shops in one direction & just over the bridge the Salthill Promenade for a beautiful walk. We arrived on the weekend & it's kind of a party town on Fri & Sat. We loved it but when return I think we'll come Sunday thru Thursday.
location room was very noisy, no breakfast included, had to pay for carpark, not good value for money
When we checked in we did not get the room we had requested. The check in agent was not willing to change our room. We had to get the manager to help us. He made the changes that were needed and we were very satisfied. After that the manager checked with us each day to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. At the end of our 3 day stay the manager even got our car out of the garage. The garage that the hotel uses is just awful. very tight corners, and hard for out of town guests to maneuver. They should find another garage to use.
convenience, cleanliness and efficiency. perfect location, great parking. Stayed here several times and cannot find any fault to report
Room was clean, and warm, good broadband signal Public areas were cold, only barfood available, no parking near hotel due to construction vans, breakfast was poor
The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The hotel was beautifuly designed. Food was gud value and portion sizes were just enough.
Staff were very friendly and helpful. Relaxed atmosphere.
I really loved the space and comfort of the hotel. I did not have the opportunity to get to pool unfortunately but I did visit and it looked smashing. I will visit again definitely Nothing that I didnt like about the hotel just that its a little walk outside Athenry
The Hotel is modern, mostly glass and well maintained. The reception and catering staff were friendly and efficient. The inclusive breakfast was excellent. When I returned to my room at 10.45pm the heating was off. The room telephone was not working so I had to go down to reception - only to be told that the heating is programmed to go off between certain times ... but would be on again soon! Disappointing.
booked two double rooms. One had a bath and the other only a shower.would expect them to be the same or be told.
The room was spacious and very comfortable,the evening meal and the breakfast were excellent with friendly and attentive staff.
Very laid back atmosphere no pressure nice and quiet locality ( apart from the rooks ) but no problem wildlife is natural .
It was spacious, friendly, and good value. We ate in the bar where the menu had a reasonable choice and was served very promptly by excellent staff who were multi-tasking i.e. serving behind the bar and clearing tables. It was a little difficult to find (our Garmin GPS was confused) and we were disappointed to find the restaurant was only open at week-ends.
The accomodation and design of hotel was really good and the pool and gym were brilliant The bar food could have been better
Staff were very friendly and helpful. It was clean, comfortable and quiet, which I enjoyed. Complimentary continental breakfast. Parking was a bit difficult at times and the entrance lobby was dark, which was a bit discouraging. General decor very old fashioned, and bathroom especially outdated, but everything functioned perfectly, and suited my needs very adequately. No tea/coffee facilities in the room which I missed.
It was homely with nice comfortable rooms and very good value for money now that people are watching their money. Well done!! I'd like an electric kettle in my room even though there was coffee on the house available down stairs.
Warm friendly athmosphere Water quality
friendlyness of staff some of the cushions in the room were not very clean, very old fashioned furniture, carpet.
Staff and owners very helpful and friendly. Very competitive prices. Would be very happy to stay there again.
The size of the room was good, however it had a very musty smell. It was very expensive.
this hotel is small and compact. room was bright and clean. staff were very plesant and helpful. got a voucher for a continetal breakfast as there was no breakfast included in our price selection was limited for the continetal breakfast, could have had more fruits and yogurts. lack of tea making facilities was a disadvantage
Could have had a bigger bathroom with a bath. It was dear for what was given.
The service was friendly and personal, local information was readily available and given in an informal though informative way.
wifi for my laptop decent speed. And cup of tea that was just right. Friendly staff who clearly explained policies
food excellent,staff excellent tap water in the room was bad taste,had to use bottled water
Very comfortable room, friendly and efficient staff, excellent dinner, comfortable bar and lounge areas, splendid sea view, calm and relaxed atmosphere. No complaints.
very friendly staff, lovely food and atmosphere there was a slight smell of fust in the Gallery restaurant, other than that it was very nice
Piano Music I did not like the room I stayed in you charge 4* prices for very adequate accommodation. Our Room was very ordinary. I had the worse Chowder ever it was full of cheap fish with too many veg.
Very relaxing friendly atmosphere.
I loved the late breakfast - served until 11.00 a.m., and the food in the restaurant is great. I had stayed at this hotel before and I was disappointed this time with the leisure centre. Some of the facilities were not working during my stay and, generally, the leisure centre needs a facelift.
We had a fantastic time and were looked after like royalty Not a long enough stay
The smiles on the faces of the staff, not one sour face to be seen.
the room, scenery of the coastline and the staff you don't provide rooms for smokers and it was difficult to obtain wash cloths
staff were very helpfull,and the food was excellent
spacious and warm room, delicious breakfast, very reasonable price. nothing
Exactly what I wanted! Clean, good breakfast, fast wifi, quiet part of town. Perfect! Nothing at all - an excellent two nights at a friendy place
Staff was very accommodating and friendly. Great breakfast! Great location and there is a great pub with music right down the road.
Room was bright, well laid out, good tv and channel selection, tea and coffee making facilities were appreciated in the cold weather! Breakfast was at 8am, which is quite late. Would of liked the option of having it earlier as I had to be at a course by 8am
Friendly, clean, comfortable, affordable. An excellent place. Extra facilities very good including free WiFi and printing facilities which many top hotels do not yet have. None that I can think of!
Very friendly kitchen staff. Private bathroom. Computer with free Internet for guests. Noisy
Excellent staff, very friendly.
Its was just what was needed! And the breakfast was amazing! By far superior to many expensive hotels! None
Staff was very friendly...breakfast was wonderful! None
Excellent service georgeous rooms and very near city centre perfect
Lovely B&B and extremely helpful and Friendly Owners. Couldn't have asked for more. Would definately stay here again. Location excellent.
We stayed College Crest for one night. It was well located, near Eyre Square. The woman who ran the place was very friendly and helpful. It was a nice, basic hotel.
Close to the bus and railway terminals. The owner is nice and kind. Meals are good and my room was clean and comfortable.
Just 5 minutes walk to Eyre square. Free parking. Great breakfast. Weekday rates are good value for money. Street noise. Heating in the room could not be turned off.
I thought the staff, imparticular the manager was professional, helpful and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. There was nothing i could complain about.
we enjoyed the leisure facilities the room wasnt cleaned properly ie. cobwebs and dust. also windows very dirty. disused fountain full of water a danger to children
room was too small
The staff were very friendly and helpful. the food was excellent. the athmosphere was very relaxing.
Restaurant was great, the staff were great, It's all good!
Friendly staff and good food Having to go outside to get to get to my room.
beautiful setting, comfortable, good food, friendly staff poor service in restaurant and bar, our order of drinks was forgotten about, we waited 20 minutes and had to go order again. Also one of our lunch orders was forgotten and only remmebered when everyone else finished, pity because the food was very nice.
We made a booking for 2 doubles. One room was of a considerable better standard, size and location than the other, in fact we had to request a room change in view of its proximity to car park and delivery entrance. The room was dark and dismal and in no way was the room worth the high rate charged
I didnt get to enjoy the hotel as I felt unwell when I got there I was suffering from an upset tummy and stayed in the room the whole time. The room service was excellent as my partner used this facility and was very inpressed with the food pity we didnt get to try the resturant but we will go back
Our room was excellent, the staff were very friendly and helpfull and the food was also excellent. The weather was bad other than that i was very happy
Excellent helpful staff and a general feeling of a busy but very well run hotel. Very good breakfast and dinner was excellent and very good value. Leisure centre and pool were all of a very high standard and well maintained. Location was good in that it was just outside city centre but it was within easy walking distance or simple bus journey and had good parking facilities and easy to get to and from by car. Nice grounds. A liitle bit noisy in the room at times.
Had a lovely time here and would defiantly stay again. Very nice chap running the place very accommodating
People were very helpful and willing to work with our schedule. Our room was facking to a busy street and was a bit noisy all night.
Good value for money, comfortable room, nice variety at breakfast, very pleasant staff
Nothing 1. Double room booked but on arrival twin rooms available only 2. Dining room not clean. 3. Breakfast deep fried (no alternative. 4. Prices a rip off.
it was very comfortable and the staff so kind! no, nothing at all!
EXcellent service and friendliness
The room was very comfortable and breakfast was tasty. However, what stood out was the length the proprietors went to for us. One of our party accidentally left her passport behind. When we called, they found it for us, and discussed the best place for it to be sent on to. They called the place we had reservations for three nights ahead, confirmed that they would hold it for us, and mailed it to that hotel! Thank you! The coffee, but that was true all over Ireland.
Sorry cozy bed and breakfast. Wonderful service and very comfortable accommodations. We got the full Irish breakfast in the morning too - it was delicious too. The parking out front is convenient as well.
Execellent service, very comfortable.
Nice clean and basic room,friendly and helpful owner.Good location for either Galway city or Salthill.Good value for money!
Bed was extremely comfy, room was very clean as well as bathroom and lots of channels on tv was slightly too expensive
I felt like home, all atmosphere was so cosy, the staff man was very friendly. I liked every single thing there.
better than a 4*hotel, amberhill is a very comfortable guesthouse, our room was modern and very clean and had all the things you would need: fridge/safe/tea,coffee tray/tv/dvd/bath/shower/. the staff were very helpfull and friendly. breakfast was very good and included in the price. i will return here again in the future nothing it was all very good
Patrick was so very helpful in everything we asked of him, and he took the time to go that extra mile to make our stay comfortable and wonderful! There was nothing not to like. It was wonderful!
Friendly service, efficient in rearranging rooms, clear directions on the phone and later on in the house. Free good-quality map available. Good price for very good quality. We had difficulties finding the street, as there seem to be not so many signs with street names in Ireland in general. This was easily solved after a phone call.
The nice comfortable bedroom and large bathroom were great. I think it was a little over priced at 198euro for two nights
the staff were brillient and very accomadating of any needs, they were very friendly and worm and the hotel was comfortable and in an excellent location.
Was only a ten minute drive from the city center. The staff was nice enough. The bed wasn't comfortable, with hardish springs. The sheets were dirty on the sides and there was a big stain on the silky coverlet on the bed. We also saw hair in the bathtub drain upon arrival, which didn't help the cleanliness factor. There were loads of young people on our floor who were loud, partying and smoking. (The smoke alarm also went off in the middle of the night due to the smoke levels.) The walls are paper thin, so if you get rowdy neighbors forget getting a good nights sleep. Management didn't seem to bother stopping them only explaining "Anyone can book a room here." Maybe we dropped in on the wrong night, but it was terrible. I felt like I had small children at a frat house. Oh, and the breakfast isn't included at this Bed and Breakfast, so plan on paying 8 euros for your greasy eggs.
The rooms were clean and the stuff were really nice
The room was lovely, breakfast was great, the staff were lovely and helpful. After staying in a number of bed and breakfasts this one was exceptional. Cant fault it.
This was without doubt the best B & B i have stayed in, and i would recommend it to anyone. The staff and information about the area provided by them was outstanding
Given my failure to appreciate the type of hotel the Amber Hill is, I actually enjoyed my stay there. The room was comfortable, well furnished, large enough and immaculately clean. The food at breakfast time was plentiful and well cooked and presented. The staff were pleasant and helpful. I was surprised & pleased at the availability of wireless broadband & even internet access for leisure use It might have been made clearer that the hotel was a fair distance from the city centre- though a taxi was readily available and not too expensive (about 8 Euros). Given how well they do breakfast, and the distance from town, perhaps meals in the evening (not actually a complaint, more a suggestion).
The cosiness and convenience of the lounge...especially due to the fine treatment by Colette! Not a major issue but the front lobby could stand more colorful or interesting decor...maybe some ferns, etc.
The staff were helpful and our room was very clean and the proximity to the town and its restaurants and bars was very convenient.
The staff was very helpful and friendly at all times. Food was great and excellent value for the money. There should be heating controls in the rooms, not at the reception desk.
We had stayed there before, and on our way to catch the ferry to Arran Island, it was a good overnight break location, We tried to book it earlier in the summer but it was full. On the Friday night, after midnight (1am onwards), we were disturbed by loud talking and doors banging right under our bedroom window a number of times.
Very comfortable room and spotlessly clean-also extremely pleasant staff and good atmosphere. Good car parking.Restful and tasteful decor--Kerry wool blankets on beds etc.it felt like a smoothly run hotel
we were the only couple staying
We liked the variety/choice of food at breakfast time. coffee was very good. ANothing we disliked but we did mss a clock/radio in the room - fortunately we did not need an early call or set an alarm. The hotel should invest in a computer for guests to use if only to send emails for communication . Lots of hotels we have used have these facilities.
The hotel was nice but the bathroom wasn't very clean, we did mention this but not alot was done about this.
room facilities & size, pub facilities & food choice & quality, location, service looks better on the outside than inside. Rooms are looking a bit tired & ours could have been cleaner. [especially mattress side which had large brown stain] Beds with duvets create a 'cleaner' impression than blankets [NB blanket was freshly laundered]
The ocean view from the main guest room was excelent. We awoke to watch the sunrise each morning. It was close enough to the city center to walk in, but far enough away to have peace and quiet and enjoy Galway!
Clean, good location with Ocean views ib dinning area.
Peter was fantastic. The location was great. Beds were pretty uncomfortable.
Very good value, great breakfast. Private baths, clean, well-appointed. In a quiet area of town, but close enough to city center to be able to walk.
Good family room, nice sized bedrooms. Great staff, made to feel very welcome. Very small bathroom, an extractor fan would have helped clear the condensation. Cooked breakfast was basic.
Host, Peter & staff were delightful folks who went the extra mile. Breakfasts were simple but well done. Location on Galway Bay is wonderful. None
The B&B was very comfortable. Excellent price for location as it is only 15 minutes walk from city centre. Breakfast next morning was also very nice. Bathroom a little on the small side but still very clean.
Great location, welcoming daytime host, rooms clean and comfortable. Evening host unhelpful - I.e didn't offer to help with luggage up to attic room, no option of vegetarian breakfast, television volume unreasonably low.
Very clean, perfect location, excellent value for money through the activehotels website. No bad points really, bnb was really perfect, breakfast 'ok' good selection though. Owner liked to inform us of our great bargain that we received through the internet - that, I didnt' like! And in his own subtle way let us know on 2 occasions over breakfast not to forget to pay, the day we were leaving. That was the only bad point and a small price to pay for such a lovely place to stay
This is a charming little place, but very basic. The breakfast was nice. This place was not set up to handle winter weather. I would definitely recommend staying here in the summer only
Friendly staff, great food, great value for money. I liked the fact you could have breakfast but only pay for what you ate rather than one charge when all I want is tea and toast. Turning right out of the car park was sometimes difficult as the N17 is very busy.
Good sized room and comfortable Room could have been cleaner specifically the toilet/bathroom and the carpet.
free parking, nice and clean room
Staff were extremely friendly & very helpful. Prior to arriving at hotel I was contacted the previous night to see if i needed an early check-in as I was attending a wedding.
The staff were so kind and helpful
Good polite well trained staff. Amention for the restaurant here for a night when they coped very well with numbers they hadn't expected, presumably because of poor weather, and guests chose to eat in. Food was of a high standard, and the whole package offered excellent value for money. We managed to change our room on first viewing, to one without the air-conditioning unit for the building right outside. This was done without a fuss by staff.
gave me first a smoking room though I had ordered a non smoking one
The hotel was set in beautful galway country side. not to close to the city but able to get thier in a very short time
The hotel was good value for money. The hotel was close to the Airport Parking was very difficult and the Bistro in the morning for breakfast was crowded. More space is required and a special area for parents with children is suggested.
we liked everyhting i have no flaws with this hotel i found it so beautiful,comforting and especially welcoming we cant wait to make another trip to this hotel again
Great Hosts - extremely clean. Quiet location (a little difficult to find first time around).
Welcoming and friendly owners of the guesthouse always willing to help and give guidance. Good access to the motorway and the airport. Nothing.
great place, the staff made me feel as though I was at home. Breakfast was excellent too. the cheesy egg is delicious
I loved the people--they were so helpful and sweet. The breakfasts were delicious!
Bright , clean , very welcoming None
Fantastic breakfast, spacious room, family atmosphere, way better than a commercial hotel
Gorgeous view, clean, good breakfast, good location, on-site parking, and host was accommodating. We were overwhelmed with information at check in, our bathroom was a bit cramped, and some of the staff came off as a bit pushy.
I would like to say that I considered it very homely and the staff were friendly and courteous and I would recommend it to anybody and my husband and I werey very pleased with our stay no cant think of any complaints
Staff is very friendly, enough parking space, close the the city The bathroom is really small
the white house is within walking distance of the city center and salthill...,,food was excellant,,,,with a beautiful breakfast room,,,,, biggest complaint was the en suite,,,,,which was just too small....
We stayed in the attic room and the view was amazing. The room is quite spacious and clean. The breakfast is tasty and the White House has a perfect location.
Good value for money, location close to city centre, very friendly and helpful staff
Friendly,helpful staff, clean,good food,within easy walking distance of city very pleasant stay.
Unable to state as not allocated room in chosen booked hotel Not what I would call a true Galway expierence ...felt very let down with whole "irish welcome " thing
The hostel is great value for money and in a nice location of great scenery. It is far from the city for walking distance.
Staff was nice. Dirty, holes in walls and doors, ceiling cracking, uncomfortable beds and pillows. We ran out if toilet paper and had to go find some. No staff was on the premises. Was the most expensive hotel we stayed in and the worst. Don't stay here! Not worth the money.
Good location between Salthill and Galway City. Room accommodations somewhat tacky, chairs stained, hairdryer did not work, bathroom dirty. Sofa in lounge was torn and worn.
The room was very clean and spacious. There is plenty of safe parking spaces available. The bar food was very disappointing. The dish I got was clearly reheated but was still cold.
Lovely room, nice staff
great value room was a too warm
Very friendly and courteous staff at this family run hotel who even remembered my name and room number at check out
Welcoming staff and comfortable surroundings. Not Applicable.
Nice room, nice bathroom Very friendly staff Excellent free wireless Internet connexion Not at walking distance from town centre There was a wedding reception on the night we staid at the hotel with lots of inconvenience
The management and staff were very helpful.
The room was fabulous and extremely comfortable, apart from the cold See above
We got upgraded to a kingsize suite for free.
Nice hotel,comfortable bed and a good Irish Breakfast offered. Location was slightly further than I would have liked, but very acceptable. ~€8 in a taxi if needed.
Dominic the owner was simply fantastic went out of his way to help me a number of times The noise outside - I stayed on a Friday night and the hotel overlooks a busy night life scene - was very noisy but I imagine this would be fine on a weekday night
beautiful, stylish, brand new b&b in the heart of galway city center. we loved it. Being so central some rooms might be noisy because of the pubs on the street. Separate hot and cold water.
Loved the location. It´s the perfect experience for a weekend break in Galway.
Lovely small hotel , i really like the decor and how tastefully some of the original features were restored, room was lovely, bed and bed linen luxurious and very comfortable, staff very friendly. i thought the room was a bit small. and some of the services like iron & ironing board & hair dryer werent in room as described, also no wardrobe for storing clothes,
We were not allowed to stay because we arrived at 1045-11pm...they had no one to open the door and forced us to book elsewhere
