I like this hotel overall. Good sized rooms, good service, quite location. But I did have to move rooms twice. First room smelled very badly of smoke. moved to a second room, also smelled like smoke but felt I could deal with it and just needed sleep after a long travel day. Not so, first night woke up, felt sick... More

Stayed here with my sister on the 15th August 2014. My sister arrived early in the morning after an overnight flight from Canada and was booked in straight away. She was very impressed with the Paddy Wagon bus which she got straight away from the airport direct to the hotel. The rooms and the hotel were immaculate. Nothing was any... More

Aesthetic changes in the lobby and reception, much improved atmosphere in the bar and restaurant areas since the property changed hands. Rooms are much the same only thing missing is a safe but otherwise clean and comfortable. Staff on the front desk are pleasant and informative.

Unfortunately, the safe in your room may have been receiving some maintenance but will be replaced soon. I hope to see you in The Spencer soon. Best Wishes, Eddie Sweeney More

I recently stayed here with my 3 children. We had tried to get on an early ferry but missed it so needed to stay an extra night in Dublin. My husband found the hotel online and booked it for us.

Popped into the Spencer Hotel to join two friends in the restaurant last Thursday. It literally was a flying visit. I can't complement the manager of East Restaurant enough. Paul is genuinely friendly, courteous and in my opinion, a major asset to the Spencer Hotel. He is exactly what the hospitality industry needs. The Spencer Hotel is lucky to have... More

Dear mary o, Thank you for the kind words about our Restaurant Supervisor Paul. He recently joined our team in “East” and has already proven to be a great addition. We have taken to calling him Mr. East. I hope you are able to stay longer than a flying visit the next time you join us. Best Wishes, Eddie Sweeney More

I've stayed in this hotel on a number of occasions but this was the first time staying since the change of ownership. I have to say I was very impressed.
