Interaction with Guests
I run a guesthouse directly across the road so am available if you have any questions
Yo no conocí a Rob el anfitrión porque no vive en le casa. La casa esta situada muy cerca del centro lo que te facilita mucho su visita .
Es una ciudad muy turística y llena de gente .
Cuando llegué me dieron la llave en una casa de B&B que hay en frente.
La Habitación es pequeña y limpia, el problema es que cuando te quedas mas de un día, te das cuenta que allí solo hay habitaciones para alquilar y un baño compartido por mucha gente.
No hay nadie que la mantenga si no eres tu mismo no hay nadie al que le puedas preguntar donde puedes conseguir toallas limpias o si alguien limpia el baño.
Internet no siempre funciona bien porque la señal llega de la otra casa.
Nadie te orienta y nadie te comenta que es lo que puedes visitar o pasar buenos momentos .
Lo bueno es que son las personas que comparten habitaciones contigo, son las que te dicen donde ir a cenar o a oír música o hacer tours osea lugares que merecen la pena.
Buen lugar para pasar una noche pero nada mas .
Ray was very helpful and responded to my messages very quickly. The room was simple, clean, and in an amazing location. It only took about 5 minutes to walk into the heart of the town. The only slight downside was that the wifi didn't work very well in the room but it could be accessed from the lounge room downstairs.
I stayed here as I had an exam in Nuigalway. Ray was extremely helpful and I would definitely stay again.
The accomodation was as I expected. The house is really close to the city centre but it is a quite place. Ray and his staff were really nice and helpuful.
The place is fantastic! Ray went above and beyond to accommodate me (I got into Galway at 11 pm and he still met me at the house). The place is clean, centrally located, and a short distance from everything you could want in town.
Also Sarah, the woman who lives in the house, is fantastic. She went above and beyond to make me feel welcome, whether it be answering any questions I had or just being a friendly face.
Truly, I can't recommend this place enough!
Ero reduce da una pessima nottata in un ostello al centro di Galway e l'aver trovato questo b&b è stata una fortuna: mi hanno aiutato e dato preziosi consigli. Staff veramente gentilissimo, stanza ed bagno perfetti e il letto era comodo. Stra-consigliato!
Basic single room that was a great deal and provided everything needed for a comfortable stay. Wifi worked fine and the bed was extremely comfortable!
