              3.2

              The hotel's proximity to the centre of Galway

              The room was extremely noisy - we were kept awake until 3am with music from a nightclub situated below. The hotel is expensive and I would have expected a much greater level of attentiveness and luxury for the pricetag. roomservice did not arrive after requesting.

            • Couple
              3.8

              no air condtioning, very warm inside and noisy when window opened, fungal smell in the bathroom, looks dirty, low quality breakfast,

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              very central for shops and resturants

              as it is a quite expensive i object to being charged for car arking

            • Couple
              7.4

              liked the valet parking facility and the spa

              white robes were advertised on the website but did not feature in the room, the handle on the toilet basin was broken and was hurting your hand when you used it

            • Couple
              7.0

              It was a beautiful room.

              i really enjoyed my stay but i was disappointed that the phone in the room was ringing at two in the morning then hotel staff bringing people to knock on the door. I would have to think hard to return to the hotel.

              5.0

              The only positives about the hotel is its location and the room we stayed in was well maintained.

              The service in the Oyster Restaurant, the lobby for afternoon tea and the bar was rubbish. We waited over an hour for our main course which was cold. Afternoon snack arrived 45 mins after ordering and was burnt. the bar staff forgot our order. I noticed many other guests being annoyed and complaining about the sevice in these departments.

              Hotel is a bit "old world" but in a good way. It's right beside the train station and I'm quite sure in years gone by the rich and famous were the bulk of clientelle. Suites are lovely and large .. great shower .. and brilliant view over Eyre Square and the city.

            • Older travelers
              5.6

              Overall quality good hOWEVER surprised to see main lobby sofa by window stained and ripped. Alos bathroom by oyster bar very poorly maintained sTAINED contertops.. In toilet cubicle the dust on pannels inside was so obvivous iT had not been cleaned for weeks

            • Older travelers
              5.4

              The location was perfect for walking to shopping, pubs, museum, etc. Breakfast (which was included) was very nice.

              This was one of the better-rated hotels in the area, and the quality did not live up to this rating. The rooms were tired and unclean, though the lobby area was nice.

            • Family with children
              8.8

              The location of the Meyrick is perfect for exploring Galway City. Old fashioned, grand hotel with modern facilities eg bathroom, wifi etc. Very friendly welcoming staff. Good public areas for sitting and relaxing in. Valet parking for €5 which is great - esp as parking is a challenge in Galway city centre.

              No outdoor smoking area/terrace

              The receptionist embarassed me when my visa would not swipe even though I had only used it in another Hotel that morning and it worked using the offline terminal. She didnt even apologise..................

            • Couple
              7.4

              Location was excellent. Room was ok but felt a bit dated for an executive suite

              Location good and staff helpful

            • Family with children
              8.2

              The staff were so lovely and attentive to our 2 year old. The valet parking made things a lot easier. Loved the look of the place

              The breakfast buffet is pretty tired, would be much better to invest in fresh food and a simpler menu cooked to order rather than giant piles of food steaming away in big pots, it's not a nice way to eat.Our room was incredibly tiny, and I would have preferred a larger space. Also the outdoor roof top hot tub, one of the reasons we booked this particular hotel, was out of order the whole time we were there.
