Spent a night at the hotel as part of a family trip to Dublin. Was able to book two interconnecting rooms which was good. The rooms were clean and beds comfortable. Breakfast however wasn't good.

This hotel is ideally located, only a few minutes away from the airport and city centre. The room was clean & very spacious. I... More

My wife and I were part of a group who stayed here for two nights in July while our kids participated in a sports tournament. There was a large number of people booking in at the same time but the staff were excellent and got through everyone fast and efficiently, and they were friendly, too. The hotel is slightly dated,...
