    Excellent base to explorer County Galway and Count

    The ample free parking was great. No car juggling to get in or out, which one often finds in Europe. Very nice view and an easy drive to Barna and Spiddal for good food without the crowds. The room was large and comfortable and the WiFi worked well. The staff was very friendly.

    The restaurant was over-priced for the breakfast buffet compared to other places we stayed on this trip. The wait staff seemed overwhelmed by large groups on tour busses, which made for slow service. Basically, the restaurant was understaffed and over-priced. The Coco Café a short walk up the street had an excellent Irish breakfast and good service for about 1/2 of the cost of the hotel.

    Nice location and staff are very freindly

    Leisure/pool facilities are poor and not as presented on the web site. The hotel is a little dated, especially the bathrooms and shower water pressure is very bad.

    THe best thing about this hotel is it's location. On the prom in Salthill and within walking distance of the pubs and restaurants on the main strip. The breakfast at the Galway Bay is one of the best in Ireland.

    Having stayed in this hotel before we were disappointed with the size of our room (small) and with the noise of the plant machinery (from the pool I think) which went on for most of the night and started early in the morning. Also the pool is small at 15 metres and the price should reflect this.
