Four of us spent three nights at The Martello last week and we could not find a fault with the place. Our four rooms were newly renovated and really nice, one of my colleagues said that she wished it was her room at home! Breakfast each morning was excellent and although we did not use the restaurant, we ate in... More

Attending a friends party so did not know what to expect of the hotel. Room was spacious with a big bay window and nice decor. Two negatives no parking or lifts. A fine freshly cooked breakfast and a good choice. As has busy bar, restaurant and night club could not be described as a quiet spot.

I stayed here for one night on business, arriving late in the evening. I chose the hotel because of the reviews on this site and because of the price. I paid €58 b&b and I think it was well worth it. First impressions were not good as I arrived in the dark and couldn't find the hotel! It's not really... More

Situated right beside a busy bar/nightclub that didn't stop making noise until 3-3.30 am. (It was a Friday night). Other than that, great stay. Lovely staff. Nice rooms although the window wasn't too great! Overall nice hotel and facilities just noisy at weekends!

My partner and I got stranded in Bray one evening when our car broke down and wandered up to the lively looking Martello for a room. While cheap at €70 for the night, we were horrified at the poor quality of the Hotel once we setled in. Our room was no bigger than a wardrobe and was shaped oddly so... More
