Maldron Hotel Sandy Road Galway, Galway

Really nice hotel, a one mile (20 minute) walk from the old town. We stayed here for New Year’s Eve, the bar was a lot of fun. Good restaurant, clean rooms. Free parking in a garage beneath the hotel.

Good, could be better
Hotel is fine but a little outside the beaten path, maybe a 1-2 km (1 mile) walk to Eyre Square and the usual tourist sights. Excellent full Irish breakfast (check your rez, may be an extra charge) and the hotel bar is ok. Beds are on the hard side of medium. Bathrooms are disappointing; no exhaust fan and the shower curtains are too small, so water water everywhere. No biggie of one person but you don't want to be the last one in your room to shower. No satellite TV, but who goes to Ireland to watch TV? Wifi is adequate but not great, and they constantly are trying to sell you on an upgrade. We had a fridge in our room without asking for it, but it goes off when you take your cardkey out of the activator that most EU hotels use nowadays.

Horrible and Stressful Situation at Maldron Hotel
We didn't get to stay at the hotel. When we arrived for check-in, we were told that the hotel was overbooked and we have to go to a different hotel that they booked for us. We had to drug our bags back to the car and drive to a different hotel, which was not a place I would've stayed. Although they offered us some free stuff to compensate for this, this negative and stressful experience put a damper on our holiday. We wasted an hour trying to sort this out. There was no advanced notification; we booked this room four months in advance. We travel extensively and this is the first time this happened to us. I see other reviewers complaining about the same thing happened to them. I'll avoid Maldron hotels in the future to avoid this. The hotel gives preference to tour groups and dumps individual bookings to other hotels of lesser quality. Evidently this is something they do routinely. Book somewhere else to avoid this happening to you.
