Dear Guest, If you want to be treated nicely by the staff, you have to be nice to the staff, but if you are arrogant and you think that if you pay you can do anything you want and abuse the staff, better stay at home as nobody wants to see a.....les. like you any more. Kind regards Peter Welsh

My Daughter and her partner bought us a night away stay in the hotel as a Christmas present. We badly needed a night away, and stayed on the Saturday night of the 17th January. This time we were put in a seaview room to the right of the main door, which had a beautiful view out into the harbour. The... More

Returned to the Royal Marine for a repeat visit and it was just as nice as the last time. They do a good room only offer and although the cheaper rooms have no view, they are very spacious with both a bath and a seperate shower. Access to the leisure centre is included and we used the pool for about... More

Although Dun Loaghaire was a bit quiet for my taste, the wonderful folks at the Royal Marine made my short stayed delightful. I booked a basic room and was promptly upgraded to a Sea View upon request, for a small nightly increase. My upgraded room was large and very comfortable. I had a very tough time adjusting my sleeping patterns... More

This was our second stay at the hotel and once again it didn't disappoint. We stayed from 16th-18th January 2015. The hotel has a lovely family atmosphere and all facilities are excellent. We were upgraded to a Sea View room which was lovely and were on a dinner, bed and breakfast package. The evening meal was lovely and the breakfast... More

Have wanted to visit here for many years. At last got that chance last week. Beautiful looking building though it is very evident that once upon a time they had extensive gardens at the front which must have gone all the way down to the sea and these have been sold off. Pity. There is no doubt the interior of... More

This is a very nice hotel, my room had a nice seeview, a very nice bed, king size, bath and shower. Nice seating and a good WIFI connection. The hotel has a nice older look, but certainly well kept, some may prefer a new look, I prefer this one. A bit on the expensive side, both for the hotel and... More

After reading some of the reviews, I knew to expect a little bit of an outdated hotel. However, I would say that it is not the case. Yes, there are some walls that need repainted and maybe some little fixes, but it is an old hotel and I'd say that it fits its character. The room was spacious and the... More

The hotel looks nice from the outside, it has a regal look to it. The inside is a bit dated and hasn't been renovated for some time. The room was spacious however the heating is only focussed on the doorway, and as there are two large windows, by the time I reached the bed it was freezing. The bathroom is... More
