Westwood House Hotel Galway
Westwood House Galway
I was booked into this hotel as part of a conference package on 17th and 18th of February. The bill was paid in full at the time of booking. When I arrived at the hotel at 11.15pm I was informed that my room had been given to a family with a sick relative in the local hospital. The hotel had tried to contact my office about this, however this was after office hours and I did not receive the call.
I was moved to another hotel which was very nice but was not one of the conference hotels. I was the only conference delegate staying in the hotel. Westwood House did provide taxis between the other hotel and their hotel to allow me avail of the coach service between NUI Galway and Westwood House. However I feel that I was treated very badly by the Westwood House Hotel, the hotel entered into a contract to provide accommodation on 17th and 18th of February when they took the booking and full payment. While I acknowledge that the other guests were dealing with a difficult situation the hotel should have honoured their contract with me. Not only did NUI Galway select this as one of the conference hotels for delegates they also held the conference dinner in this hotel.
Victorian Charm with Every Modern Convenience
We chose the Westwood House because of its seeming remoteness while maintaining a close proximity to City Centre. Decidely Voctorian in it exterior trimmings, it is thoroughly modern on the inside.
The staff was pleasant, efficient and well versed in things to see and do in Galway. Our room was well decorated with internet access,which was an added bonus. The bed linens were so luxurious that I had to be pried from my bed. The bathrooms are phenomenal with heated mirrors, strong showers and fluffy bath towels. The breakfasts were phenomenal. They even served REAL coffee.
Our two night stay here was our one splurge, as it is pricey for budget travelers but worth every penny.
