We had a very enjoyable stay. Hotel was beautifully furnished & clean. Staff were friendly. Could be more similar breakfast options that are on the brunch menu but otherwise couldn't fault it

Hotel response

Great value. Excellent location for the center of Galway and parking very easy. Room on the small side but not a problem and the bed was really comfortable. Nice bar and restaurant, ate in the bar on the night and food was really good and freshly prepared full Irish breakfast was excellent. The best recommendation I can give is that I will stay here again if I need to stay overnight in Galway again.

Young helpful attentive staff who couldn't have been more helpful or engaging. Not only with ourselves but in the other interactions we saw them engaged with other guest's of the hotel. We would gladly recommend this hotel to family and friends with it's perfect location just off Eyre Square for easy rambling about the city.

Lovely staff - very helpful. Nice room, nice surroundings. No real complaints other than (and this is me being fussy) - I would appreciate face flannels in the bathroom. The breakfasts were plentiful with a wide choice, but I foumd the sausages to be of poor quality (agin, me being fussy). Great location but parking is costly in the adjacent car park (10euro per night with a discount) - of course this would be no different to any other hotel without its own car park oin the centre of Galway.

Hotel response

Dear Ian, Thank you for your feedback on your stay. All our staff are grateful for your comments regarding their level of hospitality. I do apologise for any issues you may have had with our breakfast service - we will be looking further into this matter for the benefit of future guests & diners. I hope none of the issues raised in your review spoiled your stay with us too much, and that we can have the pleasure of welcoming you back in the very near future. Kind Regards, Douglas Niland

A delightful hotel close to the bus and rain station but near the town center. Extremely clean, quiet. Very nice breakfast. All hotel staff were very pleasant, helpful and professional. The only issues I have are that a small clothes cupboard would be welcome and that a chair (not an armchair) would be in the room to work on the desk.

Hotel response

Hi Simon, We appreciate you taking the time to leave this review, we will use this feedback to improve guests services. regards Douglas

Both of us were somewhat allergic to the cleaning supplies used and left with sniffles the next day, but the front desk staff were very helpful and the breakfast was tasty and the rooms were great.

Hotel response

Dear Drew, Thank you for your feedback on your stay. I'm glad to hear you had an enjoyable stay and that everything from our reception team to the quality of the food served in HYDE was to your liking. I do apologise for the use of cleaning products which may have triggered allergies. We have spoken to our housekeeping team to look into this issue further to see if we can source neutral products with no ingredients that could cause our guests discomfort. Thank you for bringing this to our attention, and I hope we can still have the pleasure of welcoming you back sometime in the future. Kind Regards, Douglas Niland
