              The Westwood is in a good location, restaurant and bar has friendly atmosphere

              A function took place on the night of our stay which resulted in loud music being played till 3am

            • Group of friends
              9.2

              I stayed with 2 friends in a Deluxe Triple room for an overnight stay in Galway. The room was lovely with good facilities, was spotlessly clean, had very nice contemporary decor and extremely comfy beds and was well priced for the high standard provided. The location is pretty good too, we were visiting Galway on a shopping trip and took a short cab ride into town to eat at a restaurant recommended for our trip, otherwise we would have tried the hotel restaurant. We did eat lunch in the bar which was good well priced. The hotel breakfast was really good the next day too - great breakfast buffet (incl. great cheeses!) and and the hot breakfast which followed was also good with generous portion sizes. I'll definitely stay here again.

              The only thing I could fault at all was that service in the bar for lunch and drinks on Saturday was rather slow. The hotel had a wedding in the banquetting room that day and the staff seemed at a push to serve drinks/food without a wait, even though the bar could not have been described as 'crowded' by any stretch. A small thing which could have just been that particular day rather than the norm and it wouldn't put me off visiting the Westwood again.

              The hotel was clean and staff were welcoming. The food in the dining room was excellent!

              The bar was cold and unwelcoming. We stayed on a Saturday night and whilst our dining experience was great the sewage smell in the bar was dreadful, however we did report it and staff acted upon it. There was a one man band playing in the bar who was absolultely dreadful! Lovely hotel but please do something with the bar to make it more warm and welcoming. The bar staff were courteous and did a good job!

            • Family with children
              8.2

              Large family room was very comfortable. Reception areas very nice.

              We arrived on a Saturday afternoon just after a large wedding group arrived. Very difficult to get parked. Reception area was crowded - unable to get luggage in until the wedding party went through to their function room. Extremely noisy - especially as our room was above the bar area. A complete contrast to the following day when the hotel was quiet and the car park was half empty. Would still recommend the hotel but be aware of the impact of large functions at weekends.

              i loved that we were upgraded to the bridal suite. i was going into hospital the following day and the comfort of that beautiful room really helped to relax me.

              Spacious bedroom with great super king size bed. Attentive & friendly staff. Westwood Bar was very nice with good food.

              Restaurant was too warm & extremely hot one morning. Cleaners were in our room when we came back from breakfast one day and wanted to get ready to go out. Next day we hung the Ssssh sign up.

              I stayed at the Westwood for a wedding that I attended. The room was comfortable and clean. It was also very quiet and this was good as we partied into the early hours and were not disturbed in the morning. the food was excellent and the staff were very pleasant. It was a lovely experience and one I would recommend to anyone. Regards Mary
