Staff all very nice and polite nothing was a problem.excellant location.breakfast and other food was very good
Smaller swimming then originally thought.
Friendly and approachable staff. Tasty breakfast. Leisure facilities were spotlessly clean. Amazing location, terrace over looking Galway Bay. Big spacious room with comfy beds. Highly recommend.
Nothing, it was perfect
The food was excellent, and staff were very friendly.
Our table was the last to receive dinner and as we were all enjoying it... the staff started reaching in for empty glasses the whole way around., not nice when you’re trying to eat. One man had to actually stop eating and lean back to let him in. He was not impressed! They took side plates and even the salt and pepper as we were offered seconds on meat. EVERYONE at the table was disgusted by this with one lady suggesting they’ll take the plate from under us next !!
Pleasant one night stay at the Galway Bay. Lovely staff, lovely hotel, clean & comfortable rooms. Built on the sea front so a lovely setting on a nice day! Food at the wedding I attended was excellent, the best I have ever tasted and very original!
Check in quite late - 4pm. Earlier check in time not available despite attending a wedding at the facility. Check in was very busy so may be advisable to allow extra time
