Good location hotel, great food, comfortable clean room. Best of all, efficient staff. My first choice when in Bray! The food here never disappoint with great atmosphere to match. Best to come in the summer to enjoy the outdoor where you can sit outside .

Fantastic hotel and excellent value for money with comfortable large rooms. All staff extremely helpful and very friendly. Had an evening meal in the bar which was superb and the service all evening was excellent - thank you Michael. Breakfast was included with a wide variety of choices. The quality was excellent as was the service.

Stayed here in early January with my partner. The hotel is clean, staff are helpful and very friendly. We booked an apartment. It had oddly shaped rooms, the double bedroom being particularly tight, but it was like having a hotel suite which was great. We had a view over the train tracks and there wasn't much noise to report, just... More

Stopped in for Sunday lunch and had the most wonderful seafood linguini...prawns and crab claws perfectly cooked, as well as everything else. Would definitely recommend it. The staff were pleasant and helpful, and the environment was welcoming. It was also family friendly, judging by the clientele.
