probably because we don't normally stay in a big city centre hotel, we found the noise of people in the corridors trying our door! at all hours of the morning not to our liking. Otherwise the staff, the breakfast, and rooms were fine.

We had a wonderful weekend in the Connacht hotel on Galway races weekend. Food was great at breakfast and the evening menu in the restaurant, and they best the restaurant open late for race goers and revellers. My only problem with the hotel is that I was on crutches for the weekend, and no member of staff offered to carry bags to the room which was quite a distance away, and at breakfast- despite the restaurant being only a quarter full, we were seated at the lower level down a set of steps. Again there was no awareness of the issues this caused or an offer of assistance to collect breakfast from the buffet lay out, back up the steps. This was the only disappointment in an otherwise great stay.

Staff at reception seemed to be overwhelmed (although it was not busy at all) - it took a while to get the keys to our room and a little information about how to get to the town centre. Room was nice as it is, spacious and clean, but attention to detail was missing - It could be a great place if they made a little bit more effort. Overall good value for money.
