The hotel is close to the DART station (5-10 minutes walk), so it is perfectly located if you want to use the train to Dublin. In front of the DART station also leaves a bus to Powerscourt Garden in Enniskerry. The hotel restaurant serves good food for a reasonable price. It is nice to sit outside having a drink. I... More

My wife and I stayed at the Martello, for 2 nights beginning Thursday 11th Sept. The staff at the Martello are some of the friendliest and helpful I have ever come across, I cannot single out any one person, as all we dealt with were brilliant. The food here is superb, and is highlighted by the fact that there seemed... More

Great room, great food and great location. Think we had the best room in the hotel, very large, nicely decorated and clean. Breakfast and dinner were both very good. The only negative comment is that the stair carpet going up to the bedrooms is very dirty and creates a bad first impression.

Good location, great staff, average room, good food. I booked an apartment and while the room was clean it was dated and some of the windows safety catches weren't working, not great when you have kids. We had a b&b rate which was well worth the money. I would stay here again if in Bray provided it wasn't anymore than... More

Very nice location but a real hassle with no car park at hotel. The food was very good and a great atmosphere and beer garden. The only downside is that hotel is a bit grubby in reception and landing areas.

The Martello could be an excellent place to stay. It's the small things that keep if from being excellent. The views are excellent. The outside seating has a view that is undeniably beautiful. The restaurant offers a wide variety of food choices. The seafood chowder and the mushroom brochette were to die for. The waitstaff were helpful and friendly. I... More
