  • Group of friends
    7.0

    Loved the food and the entertainment. Staff very friendly.

    The floorboards in the corridor upstairs creaked terribly. Lights in the room too dim for reading.

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    Room very comfortable and quiet. We had a great rest!

    We arrived 10 minutes after the restaurant closed and couldn't get anything to eat. We we're too tired to look around the city to get something to eat so we snacked on peanuts at the bar.

  • Family with children
    7.4

    Nice hotel, friendly helpful staff, good food, good location, free parking,

    room noisy at night

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Great breakfasts. Very good bar area. Free broadband in room was a very good extra.

    I didn't like the fact that it is a ten euro taxi trip each way to the centre of Galway.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Just 20 min walk to city centre. Plenty car park space. Leisure facilities very good. We stayed mid week and even though lots of people around we found room nice and quiet.

  • Couple

    The staff were incredibly friendly ! Rooms were spotless, views were amazing, all in all the hotel was absolutely flawless couldn't say a bad word about the place , we're definitely going to go back there soon .

  • Group of friends
    9.2

    the facilities were excellent and the staff were very helpful and friendly all in all we had a very enjoyable weekend.

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    The staff where amazing, so friendly and very efficient .. They really made you feel at home .... I would back just for that

    The main reason 2 of my answers where fair ... I booked a triple room but there was only towels and tea and coffee facilities for two. In the morning we where leaving the shower was cold .... We even went to breakfast and came back to the room An hour later and they where still cold,the receptionist was like ok sorry about that !!!!! Ended up going to the leisure centre for a shower just not good enough!!

  • Couple
    7.0

    Nice big lounge area in the bar. Perfect for a stay with Kids.

    Staff were hit and miss, Some were very nice and some couldn't care less if you stayed or not.

  • Family with children
    7.8

    What I actually liked about the hotel were the staff. In fact, normally when you stay at a hotel you find one or two people that stand out. However, in this hotel, all of the staff were exceptional. They all appeared to get on really well with each other which made the atmosphere really nice for all. Who ever employed these people keep doing what you're doing as that's one of the main reasons why we'd actually com back among others. Well done to all!!!!

    Breakfast is ridiculously priced for two adults and two children.

  • Single

    Easy location, very polite and helpful front desk, friendly atmosphere

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    It was near to the 7 days of racing

    we had a room that was facing the back car park and due to that fact it was very noisy.

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    We really enjoyed our stay, the staff were incredibly helpful & friendly. It was great value & a very pleasant stay. I would recommend the Carlton.

  • Group of friends

    There were children playing chasing in the corridor from 8am. This went on for quite a while and ruined any chance of the lay in we were looking forward too
