Tired decor, mediocre breakfast, great location. The Kingston needs a face lift. It has beautiful views of the sea, pier and ferry from the restaurant. Free parking! But it's a tad shabby with old fashioned furniture. Could be so great, but needs investment. Our room was on floor 5, and quiet, but the bathroom had cracked tiles & grimy taps.... More

I had to cancel my weekend at this hotel at the last minute due to ill health and the staff were more than helpful and understanding when I called them. They refunded the deposit which they weren't obliged to do and I am very grateful to them.

I had the occasion to stay here on Thursday 13th. I requested a sea view which was granted and the views were spectacular but that is where it ends. We arrived about 6pm to an empty reception desk with the back office door wide open and a clearly disorganised office with shoes and all sorts just thrown around the place.... More

This hotel is just awful. The staff are ignorant and rude. The bar is non existent its just a couple of stools and hard chairs and that's it. The bar staff in particular were shockingly bad and terribly rude.The breakfast was just terrible very little selection. The bar staff only cater for people having meals and people they know ....

Unfortunately while the hotel is well situated, the staff are overall unhelpful and borderline rude. Rooms are small and pokey, especially when there are already people in them. Even though the price seemed reasonable, it was actually quite high for what we received - not even willing to part with a cold jug of milk for tea in the morning.... More

I was there for a wedding and thought it was great. Good staff, nice location, worth paying the extra for the sea views, great restaurant (Olivetos), near the pier which is good for a Teddy's ice cream, a bit more character/more intimate than the Royal Marine which is a bit corporate and shiny for my liking - with its chandeliers...

I write this review at 2am in the morning having not slept at all due to loud noises surrounding the hotel. So you have the sound of cars and trains which you could easily believe are in the room with you!!!! You then have the noise of the pub/restaurant which is part of the hotel of which you may as...

Thank you for your review. All comments are welcomed. I'm afraid as we are located in a town centre we cannot offer the guarantee of total peace and quiet. We do face onto the coast road but this is not generally a high traffic road after working hours and the train does not run all night. With regard to noise... More

After a truly fantastic stay at TwoRoomsinDublin and a bustling city experience we decided to spend the last night of our short break at the coast at the Kingston Hotel in Dun Laoghaire - as soon as we arrived we knew we had made a poor decision. The receptionist hardly looked up as she informed us that we would have... More

To start with the positives - the room was large, comfortable and clean. The temperature was fine and the bed was comfortable with fresh clean sheets. We had booked a double room and the room had a double and single bed in it with an en-suite bathroom with bath and overhead shower. The décor was slightly shabby, but fine. We... More

My friends and I stayed at the Kingston. We had a large room at the back of the hotel, no views but very quiet and plenty of room for three people. Room very clean, beds comfortable and the bed linen is fresh; en suite bathroom with shower over the bath. Plenty of hot water. I suggest visitors bring their own... More
