Lovely if a little dated. The rooms are nice and clean. The location is great. Close to the DART train and the water. The business office is terrible. Most of the equipment wasn't working. If you will be making multiple trips to Dublin, consider staying here and buying a LEAP card. It allows discounted trips on the DART rail system... More

on staying in this hotel the only positive points were the breakfast, it was of a high standard and the spa, which was peaceful, relaxing and the staff were very friendly and professional. Apart from that the hotel itself is rubbish. The staff are uninterested in serving or assisting you and the interior of the hotel is very shabby. very... More

This hotel has such potential with a great view and great location. BUT the service is simply diabolical. I live in the local area and often meet business associates here for coffee, lunch etc. Yesterday myself and business associate sat for 35 minutes at a table in the lounge area, we were going to order a sandwich and coffee but...

Been in the hotel for two business trips, both times in executive room. First time was on 4th floor, with a view of a brick wall, second time 7th floor with beautiful view of the Dun Laoghaire rooftops. The executive rooms are spacious, with calming decor, 2-meter wide bed, couch, two desks, tv with international channels, and balcony. The bathroom... More

Perfectly pleasant and clean hotel just lacking in style or personality. Seems to be a hit with the elderly traveller. Staff were v good, room was comfortable and location was good. With a little effort could be quite a nice hotel.
