We could not recommend this hotel too highly. My husband & I have been visiting here for many years, even before it had the "wings" added. Our last visit in the first week of September 2014 was really the "icing on the cake". We enjoyed delightful weather, beautiful clean,comfortable classic room with sea view, The receptionist, Hayley Mills, was most... More

I stayed here with my wife, my 1-year-old daughter and another couple as we had all been invited to the christening of an Irish friend's baby in Bray and had decided to make a trip of it. We arrived at about 9pm in the evening, after a fairly long trip via the Rosslare ferry, to find an excellent underground car... More

The air coach from Dublin airport drops off right outside the front door. Takes about 40 mins and is about 16 euros each (return). The hotel is grand and popular with the older generation but was very comfortable. Everywhere is immaculatly clean

I was ready to give this hotel a 5 until I got locked out of an entrance through the 'bar' to the main shopping street -- and I'd used this entrance from noon the day I arrived until I tried to come back in (after going out this door 1 1/2 hours earlier). I was told by an employee I... More

Some points about the hotel.... Rooms: A little dated. Things seemed a little old, there were markings and cracks on the walls which was a bit strange. Reasonably clean but not spotless. Gym: Good size. No wifi. Lots of cardio machines, some free weights, weight machines, yoga balls and mats, bosu balls with handles (semi kettlebell style) The Dun restaurant:... More

Stayed here for 3 nights on a business trip. Hotel has the traditional style of a grand hotel. Attracts many buses with older tourists, but that is not a problem for the business traveller, since there are 2 breakfast rooms (one large where most of the groups go, one small in the back). The breakfast buffet had a good selection.... More

Amenities sre plenty. Hardys is excellent with lovely food too. Short drive into Dublin and shops up the road too. Worth a visit.

The bedroom was luxury itself. Air conditioned, clean and very comfortable. No noise at night. The staff and duty managers were polite, friendly and over anxious to satisfy. The food was sufficient and of excellent quality. The hotel reeked of old time grandeur and comfort. However, we experienced some trouble with our room. Although we complained about this on several... More

This hotel near the Irish Sea is a throwback to the past but with 21st Century updates. Most famous visitors may have been Laurel and Hardy but other notables stayed here. Nice lunches, pub and good dining. Large comortable lobby. Rooms are up-to-date. Close to the water with scenic piers to walk. Ferrys to the U.K.
