A great little B&B for a good price in a good location. The breakfast was wonderful and the owners are so friendly and gracious. The only issue was that we had one key for the room even though there were three of us, but I expect that is common for a B&B like this one. Still, I would stay there again!
Quality of breakfast selection, reasonable 8:30 to 10:00am Breakfast times
You could walk to the promenade It was too expensive compared to what you got at other places. Toilet seat broken and fan stuck with tape to keep it together
The owners were magnificent in trying to meet our expectations which were very high as the B&B charged 170+ Euros. Breakfast was excellent, the property was very clean and fresh - bed excellent. The Bay view was not of the main Galway Bay but a side backwater!! However yes you could see a bit of water!! Lack of seating in room - owner did offer additional chair but space not really enough. Price a bit high for not being in a central Galway Bay facing location
Everything was great. Very personal attention - food was wonderful and owner extremely helpful in arranging tours and whatever we needed.
Excellent,very cozy and comfortable, roomy with beatiful view, great breakfast, .
We received a warm welcome from Freddie upon arrival and enjoyed a superb breakfast before we departed to Cork. The rooms were spacious and the beds were very comfortable!! We would love to return and spend more time there.
this destiantion turned out to be all thta i hoped for and more the inn keeper are wonderful poeple kind helpful enduring . I would recomend this b&b to anyone any time. The breaskfast meals were comforting delicious and convienent. this b&b is the ultimate place to stay in the galway area.
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.
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.
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
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.
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
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!
Peter was fantastic. The location was great. Beds were pretty uncomfortable.
Clean, good location with Ocean views ib dinning area.
The rooms were clean and the stuff were really nice
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.
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
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.
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).
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.
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
I felt like home, all atmosphere was so cosy, the staff man was very friendly. I liked every single thing there.
Staff was very accommodating and friendly. Great breakfast! Great location and there is a great pub with music right down the road.
Its was just what was needed! And the breakfast was amazing! By far superior to many expensive hotels! None
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
spacious and warm room, delicious breakfast, very reasonable price. nothing
Very friendly kitchen staff. Private bathroom. Computer with free Internet for guests. Noisy
Excellent staff, very friendly.
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!
Excellent service georgeous rooms and very near city centre perfect
Staff was very friendly...breakfast was wonderful! None
Fantastic breakfast, spacious room, family atmosphere, way better than a commercial hotel
I loved the people--they were so helpful and sweet. The breakfasts were delicious!
Bright , clean , very welcoming None
Welcoming and friendly owners of the guesthouse always willing to help and give guidance. Good access to the motorway and the airport. Nothing.
Great Hosts - extremely clean. Quiet location (a little difficult to find first time around).
great place, the staff made me feel as though I was at home. Breakfast was excellent too. the cheesy egg is delicious
Good position across from the bay. Nice area. Too many stairs. Old, tired furnishings.
Quite room The room was quite small.
The staff was more then welcoming, I didn't even feel like I was away from home. The location was more than ideal, I was able to take a beautiful walk around the coast or head right into downtown. The room was simple but comfortable. They were able to make great recommendations as far as what was the best things to see. They had wifi which was very reliable and important for my stay as that was my means of communication. Thank you for a great stay :) I had a stain on my sheet during my stay which is why I brought cleanliness down to 4 star. It was very mild and didn't effect my stay. The only other recommendation would be to possibly have a little more variety for breakfast, there wasn't anything there that absolutely grabbed my attention. That being said they were more then accommodating to those who had requests.
not too bad location (especially if you have a car) the room was small, no atlantic view, no balcony
Location is good. The room we were given was nowhere near the standard of the room shown in the photograph and I think it was fairly outdated especially the bathroom when you consider the competition in this market at the moment. Breakfast was alright but would expect better quality food in the full Irish breakfast. I feel this B&B is expensive when compared to budget hotels in the city that are similar price and much better standard.
A warm welcome and easy atmosphere
Location - proximity to sea and to Galway Hospital. It wasn't made clear when booking that cash payment was required on departure.
Friendly and helpful staff, great views over Galway bay. Though it was close to a main road it was quiet. Highly recommended.
Ideally situated - short walk to city - lovely views and great for walking along the promenade
very close to all amenities. fantastic location, free wifi,rooms great, we got a balcony!
We visited Galway city and met up with some friends. Had dinner at a good hotel. The room had everything you needed but was a bit small.
Good position close to the beach and 15 minutes walk from Galway centre. Wholesome breakfast, comfortable resident's lounge with computer, wifi downstairs. Small double rooms even with single occupancy.
the large room, tv & closeness to town it wasn't very clean i.e. needed dusting, unfriendly staff
Carmel was very friendly and helpful, especially with local knowledge. Internet connection/ access was teriffic . We all enjoyed our stay
The mgmt. was kind enough to let us have our room way early in am. for which we are very grateful.
the value for money and the staff were helpful and friendly would definatly stay there again. the bathroom in the triple room was very small and not enough towels for 3 people
big bathroom, clean rooms, plenty of hot water its a long walk from city center but its only 8 euro by taxi
No towels were provided, our booking stated that we were getting a large double room but the room we were assigned to was much smaller than all the other double rooms on the same floor
It was within walking distance to the Galway city bus station. The room was way too small. There was no room to turn around. The toilet didn't flush properly and when we told the staff they said to just keep on pumping the handle. Breakfast was an additional price which wasn't realised until we arrived at the the B&B.
Everything in Amber Lodge B&B, I like it.
Staff were very friendly Room and ensuite were very small and in need of some decorating, bed was small for a double.
The rooms were very small and the ensuite was like a match box.
Good location. Large room Shower was not good at all.
The beds were comfortable and the room was clean. It wasn't made clear that the booking we made didn't include breakfast which we thought was strange as Amber Lodge is a Bed and breakfast!
The shower pressure wasn't very good.
Friendliness of the staff & management. Cleanliness of the room & general comfort level for this type of accommodation.
nice room, close to town, very helpfull staff
Super clean. Close to town. Eric is super friendly and knows the area very well. Wifi on the top floor is weak but they are upgrading so it should be good soon.
Staff was very pleasant, rooms very clean, close to downtown and buses. Beds and linens crisp and clean. We are a mature couple and felt very comfortable and secure.
