Positive Reviews

Waterfront Serenity.

Those seeking stately retreat with The Galt House revel in the tranquil ambiance which naturally emanates from the awe-inspiring views of the neighboring Ohio River—visible from many of the well-appointed sleeping configurations and residents' facilities. Activities such as swimming, fishing, and boating tours are found in abundance throughout the surrounding area.

Central Activity Abounds.

Not only does the encompassing environment of this upscale property instill a sense of authentic calm and relaxation, but the bustling heart of Louisville sprawls in bountiful glory from the doorstep of The Galt House. Historic districts, arts centers, and museums make for exciting endeavors with the family, whereas clubs, bars, and concert venues—likewise in excess—make for enthralling nights on the town.

Stately Arrangements.

The sleeping arrangements—varying between a series of rooms and suites—uphold a stern elegance, as modern features persist throughout each lodging's entirety. Large mirrors, ornate furniture, and plush linen bedding ensure one's stay is nothing other than excellent.

Negative Reviews

Cavernous Critters.

Previous residents of The Galt House have expressed their malcontent with insects assuming habitat in certain rooms. Cock roaches have been reported to congregate beneath large appliances and in the bathrooms, while bed bugs are known to desecrate the plush bedding.

Refurbishment in Demand.

However well-appointed, portions of select sleeping arrangements have been brought to the attention of prior inhabitants. Such discrepancies as threaded carpets, torn drapes, and malfunctioning faucets have detracted from the stay of others.

Dirt Detracts.

Accompanying those previously mentioned concerns regarding the condition of certain structural features, The Galt House's standard of hygiene has likewise elicited disappointment. To summarize former grievances, heavy dust accumulation, poorly vacuumed carpets, and stained furniture and towels are known to persist throughout some units.
