Score from 524 reviews Very good
friendly helpful staff. Location perfect. Overall a most enjoyable stay. Tried to book for second night but fully booked. Would definitely stay again. Upper floor rooms recommended if light sleeper. No noise problems on Fri night but sat might be livelier. All you require is within easy walking distance.
Some mildew on shower grout R202 and breakfast service a bit slow. This was not really worth mentioning but it is easy to sort. Copy of food menus in rooms would be nice.
The staff were very helpful and friendly and complimented the excellent midday checkout time. The location is fantastic and we found it really easy, were ble to unload the car and park just around the corner. Being, so close to the restaurant and bars and shops was awessome
It was raining and the internal gutters made quite a loud water dripping noise
there was a spot of blood on the pillow the room smelt like cigarettes (must have been coming up from outside Karma nightclub) we were told we could check out at 12.30 but we started getting called at 10 to 12. luckily I had the email saying that checkout was 12.30 as the man behind reception got a bit thick about it. It was nothing like the first stay I had there at the start of the summer
Location, food, atmosphere.
Due to hotel being part of a very popular bar extremely noisy at night. However if you expect it or you are part of the crowd should not be an issue.
The breakfast was fantastic and the Guinness perfect
There was a constant drain smell in the bathroom and no parking. Problems with the door entry key but value for money
Convenient for Aran Islands, Galway Tours, Airport Bus large room with view of eyre square Held my bags before and after breakfast very good with choices
I liked everything! Especially the staff, all genuinely nice, friendly and helpful , it's ideally located and has quiet rooms for those who don't party too late !!!
Clean New Good price Quality place and worker Top wifi
Location, staff, service
The Skeff's location is ideal for me when I plan an overnight in Galway. I especially appreciate the staff who are genuine in their friendliness and always looking for ways to help. I also like that their single rooms are quite large. It is a popular nightspot, but noise has never been an issue.
GREAT LOCATION, VERY NICE STAFF!
DID NOT LIKE HEARING THE DRUNK KIDS PARTYING ON THE STREET UNTIL 3AM
Perfect location for a weekend break, the place was buzzing with activity! Will definitely be back. 10/10!!
Great location, lovely big bed, ideal for a short break. Steps away from shops, bars, restaurants. Would recommend!
Couldn't connect to wifi, breakfast served in bar.
The room was really very nice
No top sheet
The young man on reception from Donegal was the most helpful, friendly and courtious person I have meet in a long time, chatty without being in your face and considerate to a fault - he's a real keeper!!!!
The fact that breakfast wasn't included in the price, but the price was so good l can't really complain.
During our one night stay at the hotel it rained which was really nice, until the water started draining off the roof into the rain gutter making an anoyying water drip sound that lasted all night.
the walls must be so thin, kept awake all night with the man next door snoring all night
location was great with parking a bit of an inconvenience and confusion. The staff, room and breakfast were all good.
This hotel is right above a night club that has techno music playing until late hours but worse than that, our room was right over the back alley where bar staff would drag empty beer barrels late into the night.
Nice Hotel. Good Location.
Nightclub went on to 2.30am and was very loud! Did not get much sleep even though we booked a quiet room.
location, location. its so convenient right near bus and rail station.will defiantly stay here again, the staff especially the receptionist and the girls serving breakfast were very helpful. the skiff bar was great craic and we could not hear any noise from the bar in our room.
we spent a lot of money in the bar and there was no discount for food or drinks.
I left my phone in the hotel and Lisa in reception made it her business to make sure I got it back asap, an outstanding example of great customer service
Location. Staff. Breakfast.
No parking. Noisy - so ask for a quiet room. Can't drop off at/drive to front of hotel at certain times (street closes during certain hours).
Excellent value. Lovely Brekfast room overlooking Eyre Square. Perfect location. Very clean and neat
Noise from Disco, subdued but audible
Big room plenty of space to move. Fabulous breakfast.
