    Superb

    Its central location, excellent bedroom and pleasant staff.

    The room fire alarm went off twice during the night without any intervention by me.

    Superb

    Very large rooms, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. It is a great place to stay in the middle of galway city. Buffet breakfast room was spacious, with a great variety of cereals, cold meats, yogurts, fruit, juices, bread, bagels, tea, coffee juice available. Much better than expected.

    A bit over-priced at 100 euro per night, and probably well above average for the country overall.

    I thouroughly enjoyed my stay at The Imperial Hotel, staff were extremely friendly and helpful and extremely accomodating. I will definitely return, excellent location and hair salon adjacent to hotel offers discount to hotel residents.

    Fabulous

    Excellent location. Clean comfortable room. Pleasant and helpful staff. Very accommodating breakfast availability times and good selection of food on offer for the continental breakfast included in the room price.

    No view from room but that was probably compensated for by the absence of noise from the square.

    Fabulous

    I stayed at the imperial for a weekend with my mother and sister. Its ideally located for shopping and eating out so the location was a winner for us. It's cheap and cheerful.

    No full breakfast only continental (fresh boiled eggs also but were hard!) If you book a meal in the deal, its served in the bar, there's no restaurant. However it was our second time there so we knew what to expect.

    Very good

    Right on Eyre Square,excellent location, nice staff

    Kettle and tv broken in the room brought this to the attention of reception but nothing was done about it, wasnt using either so it didnt matter too much. Otherwise the room was grand

    Location

    Got no sleep on the Saturday night room must have been right next to nightclub. Also doors kept banging all night. There was a party in the next room which went on all night. Walls are paper thin could hear everything.was so disappointed because there was fab 4 star hotels much cheaper but went with this because of location. Would not stay there again!

    Fabulous

    The hotel itself was nice and couldn't be closer to the town which was great but not so great in the early hours when noisy stragglers heading home :)

    But of entertainment in the bar would be great!

    Very good

    The check-in staff were efficient and courteous and the bar staff patient in the late-night residents' bar.

    The breakfast was very poor and a complete pan of brown sliced bread was mouldy, every slice.

  • 7.0
    Very good

    The location is excellent, the rooms were clean and spacious, the hotel bar was also good.

    The staff at reception weren't welcoming, they also double charged us for the room at checkout.
