Great 84%

Lovely modern and bright apartment with views over the city. Very clean and well furnished.
Beds very comfortable. Receptionist was friendly and very helpful. It is very convenient to the City Centre and it was great to have secure parking for the car. Would highly recommend these apartments.
The booking process was very straightforward and the information given was correct.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

very friendly staff- noreen was very professional. Hotel was a little dated but still very nice. tv was ancient but to be honest we didn't us it at all- this is the ideal spot to say if your going for a girls weekend to go out or shopping. parking was included which was great. its a 2 min walk to eyre square, right beside the new TKmax, debenhams and city centre. breakfast was perfect and great selection. staff plentiful and asking if there was anything else we needed!On the down side one of the night porters a little strange!, no safey deposit box in room and a few cracked tiles in bathroom but apart from that i would def return for a short stay. thanks again.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I wouldn't normally bother filling these things in, but I gotta say I was impressed with the Western Hotel. I injured my back a few weeks back, and I had to travel to Galway for an exam. I would usually just stay in a hostel or somewhere cheap, but as comfort was essential, I looked at budget hotels. The room was huge, we booked a twin room and it had 2 double beds. The room was really comfortable, quiet and clean. The restaurant was great value and the food was good. I would have no problem recommending the Western Hotel to anyone. Central, clean and good value.
