Good value for money compared with other hotels in this area good location only 10 minute bus ride into the centre remember buses only take coins. Check in was quick and easy and staff very friendly plenty of car park spaces available. Rooms a little on the small side but clean and have the basics, breakfast time is a little... More

Along with 10 friends my wife and i spent 3 nights in this hotel to celebrate my wife's birthday.From the moment we checked in one could tell that it was going to be a good experience.It had that homely feeling about it. As it was early to get our rooms we ordered Tea and Scones which were promptly served and... More

We were checked in by a lovely receptionist who changed our room to one with more beds( double and two singles as opposed to a double and one single which had been the only option available on booking.com) at no extra cost. Also arranged for a travel cot. The room was lovely. Quiet, comfortable. Did not avail of breakfast.

We stayed for three nights, and the hotel itself was ok if a bit disorganised. The room quality ranges and it depends if you get a renovated room or one that looks like it was from the mid 90's. Reasonable value for money. However, the food here was rubbish. We ordered dinner on our second night and found the overall... More

I stayed here twice last year. The public areas, bar and executive rooms were all pleasant. I thought it was a little overpriced for what it is but, it was okay. However, on both occasions I was disturbed by housekeeping knocking on my door, waking me, long before checkout in the morning. On both occasions I made this known to... More

I'm really surprised of the favorable comments which have no basis, in my opinion. Either the tourist standards went considerably down or the administration of the hotel is behind most of the appreciations. First, the hotel is far of the city center - about 20 minutes by bus or 10 minutes by taxi. The surrounding area is probably one of... More

When we selected this hotel it was mostly due to the convenient location between the airport and the city, plus it gave more value for money than hotels in the city centre. Transport to the centre and back is no problem, as many buses run by, although the schedules are not completely reliable. But remember that the Drumcondra Road is... More

Good location, just 5 minutes by car from Dublin Port and on the bus route to the city centre. The down fall was the road noise which was continuous through most of the night. The only peace you got was when you shut the window and on a warm night this was not an option. The rooms are in need... More

Nice clean hotel, good sized room on the 5th floor, however, no lift from 4th up. Not a problem for ourselves. Towels changed daily, safe, kettle and hairdrier all provided. Ideal location, 20 mins from airport using public bus number 16 or 41, 10 mins to city centre. Ate in restaurant first night, food passable, not brilliant. Staff seemed to... More

We stayed here from the 10th-14th July 2014 we paid around £280 which was good value compared to other hotels. The hotel is around a 20 minute walk to the city centre which is nice. There is a bus stop directly outside which is great (buses only accept coins). There is also a dominos pizza across the road which is... More
