Arrived to find we were expected to climb very narrow stairways to our rooms after requesting low level. The rooms were not at all good, cramped, uncomfortable and the bathroom was dingy, tiles coming off the walls. As the room was family room there was a single bed cramped into one corner leaving very little room to walk round the... More

We booked here for one night this week as we were coming down from Belfast to fly out of Dublin. We are not generally picky about our hotels and usually just look for a clean place to sleep. Upon arrival we were met at reception by someone that barely understood English and it took us a good fifteen minutes to... More

Booked last minute after struggling to find somewhere in a good location for a good price. Was a bit sceptical after reading the trip advisor reviews but I have got to say I was pleasantly surprised. Great location, perfect for what we wanted as 2 students looking for a cheap weekend getaway. Comfy beds with a small shower in the... More

We booked 2 nights double room ensuite in this awful place for £180 which is real joke. The room we were given was up several flights of stairs & had only a bed, chair & TV which doubled for wardrobe with coat hangers hanging off bracket. Nothing else in room, no side light, tea making or anything else. Just a... More

This is a guest house, our room was clean and adequate for our needs, the bed was very comfortable. The shower cubicle was a little small, there was also a toilet and small hand basin, some rooms don't have loos in. We were in room 132 which is on the third floor and there was no lift, I was only... More

We spent two nights at the Avondale guest house. We had a two bed twin room downstairs that had one window, to the hall to the bathroom, which had zero circulation. The had a tiny shower that sprayed out onto the carpet making it wet and the room very musty! Upon arrival out carpet was still wet and our bedding... More

This guest house is in a great location ,1 minute from Shops and pubs. The bed was comfortable,the room was clean and the breakfast was excellent. The room was basic, no tea or coffee making facilities and the toilet was on the landing so shared. The staff were all lovely apart from one very grumpy rude old irish man on... More

We stay with husband only one night. Hotel are in the center of city. The breakfast was tasty, the staff was helpful and friendly. B&B building in some places need repair. We had the shower in the room, but toilets was in another floor.

We've spent 1 night in this B&B and it was horrendous. First of all we didn't realize the toilets are going to be outside the room, but that was my mistake not to check the description properly. The place was really old and i guess the only way to describe it was gross. The cleaners did what they could and... More
