If you've read any of my reviews, you know that I place a premium on customer service. Any other hotel I review from now on, will be judged against the Merrion, and it has set the bar pretty high! From the minute you pull up, you are taken care of! After the checkin process was complete, our concierge took us... More

The Shangri-La Singapore continues to never disappoint. Once again here is the benchmark in five star SERVICE in the hotel industry bar none!!! From desk clerk to waitstaff to the cook on the line at breakfast to the Waterfall restaurant for an IT department who knew how to fix the lap top ......Horizon Club great bang for the buck. Truly...

A complementary and unrequested upgrade to a suite got us in the mood right from the start. The suite was beautiful. Tasteful, with two large TV's, Nespresso machine, iPod Dock, great bathroom, second WC, separate luggage room, and very comfy sitting room with dining table. It was so comfortable that we requested our dinner to the room, and even though... More

5 Star luxury at its best! not pretentious,Impeccable service, Spotlessly clean. Stayed 3 nights at the Merrion in a deluxe garden room, it was absolutely faultless. The friendliest staff I’ve met in ages, nothing was too much trouble. Concierge service brilliant, breakfast served with smile & style. We ate at the Hotel on Good Friday as all the “public” bars...

That's a great opening sentence to hear when arriving at an hotel, uttered by a chap in a top hat and riding cloak. A lot of hotels have men in ridiculous uniforms lurking outside but this was my first truly useful one, valet parking is not a big deal but rare in the U.K and Ireland. After a long weekend... More

My lovely boyfriend and I just returned from a week in Dublin celebrating his birthday. I booked online based on reviews from other people and selected the Merrion hotel. From the moment I booked, everything was fantastic. I first reached out via email to the hotel which I would highly recommend, Emma was the first to respond to me and... More

Brought my family to the Merrion for their ART tea on a Sunday. The whole experience was magnificent and Conor our server was exemplary, couldnt have done more for us to enjoy our stay. The whole hotel is thoroughly deserving of its 5 stars. Looking forward to going back again.

I have been in some very nice hotels in my life such as the Mandarin Oriental in Bangkok and The Connaught in London. I can tell the readers of this review, unreservedly, that The Merrion ranks as one of the top hotel experiences in the world. My wife and our three children (7,9,13) stayed there for a 4 night stay... More

My husband and I stayed at The Merrion Hotel over the Easter weekend. The staff were the best trained staff of any hotels we have stayed in around the world. They were extremely friendly and went out of their way for each and every guest. We had lunch in Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud which is ajoining the hotel and this was... More

Just returned with my 7-year old daughter after staying at the Merrion for 3 nights during the Easter break. The service we received from every single member of staff was faultless and from the first greeting by the Doorman to the last farewell at check-out, I was made to feel special and a valued customer. The bedroom was gorgeous -... More
