Nice & clean hotel in good location. Poor stiff bed & church bells noisy. Staff very nice & could not do more for you. Quite expensive but think it was just expensive weekend as rugby was on. Can't think of anything more to say just filling up the space............

We spent just 8 nights at GFH. Our impressions were pretty similar to those of others: the staff was friendly, the location excellent, the church bells were not too disturbing, live music in the pub downstairs stopped before 11.PM... but... when we returned from town to hotel in the afternoon, our rooms (4th floor) were never made. The cleaners came... More

Booked for a night away. Great location within sight of Christchurch and Templebar. Room was quiet and comfortable, front-of-house staff were friendly and efficient. Good cooked breakfast in a nice dining room. Great mid-price option - we'll be using it again!

My mum and I recently took a trip to Dublin, we stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in February. On arrival the staff were very helpful, as we were a couple of hours early to check in they let us check in anyway as our room was ready! The rooms were clean, spacious and had good facilities.

we stayed in a lovely apartment for 5 nights. the rooms were spacious and clean, comfortable furnishings. our apartment would've been ideal for two couples or a family with kids. the breakfast was excellent, definitely worth the price. very friendly staff who reacted quickly to our requests. would stay there again! bars and restaurants literally around the corner!
