Just back from a great one night stay here. I requested a nice room when booking as it was my husband's birthday this week and the staff certainly took notice. We were given a large beautiful modern room overlooking the sea and there was prosecco and chocolates when we arrived. What a lovely touch! Had a great meal last night... More

While visiting Wicklow I spent one night here room small but the food in the resturant made up for it a really great spot and seems to be a very busy hotel in this town. I would stay again but I would request a bigger room thanks again to all staff who were a credit to this hotel.

What an amazing place to stay. Spotlessly clean and with staff that can't do enough to help. Nothing is to much trouble. Right on the beach front with beautiful views of bray. We stayed in the one bed apartment which had everything we needed, including a washing machine. This is rated as a two star hotel but personally feel it... More

Dear KSarahs, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. We are delighted that you enjoyed the food here and found the apartment to be such good value.

The Martello is a superb, beautiful hotel and the Bray sea front. I was whisked away here as a surprise, we got a fabulous room with an amazing sea view, upon arrival there was prosecco chilling in a bucket with two champagne glasses sitting on the windowsill. The room was gorgeous and had a fresh kind of nautical feel to... More
