This has to be one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. The staff are extremely good at what they do. They have great customer service skills and are extremely attentive always asking how everything is and if you have an empty glass in front of you they come over and ask would you like another drink even...

We stayed for 2 nights while visiting relatives in Wicklow and Glenageary. A great hotel on the seafront, our room was at the back of the hotel next to railway line but did not hear the trains. Room was clean with a very good shower room. The terrace was a great place to eat and we enjoyed lunch both days.... More

Returned from our stay at the Martello apartments yesterday. We were visiting for our nephews christening which was also held at the hotel. I can honestly say I don't think I have ever met such friendly, helpful staff. Nothing was too much trouble, always smiling... and as a mixture of Welsh and English visitors i'm quite sure we were a... More

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment for a couple of nights. The apartment was well equipment and clean with a good size bed and the pull out beds were also good. However it was very compact for a holiday with young children and the bathroom although clean was particularly shabby and in need of refurbishment. It was very noisy... More

Stayed here with my family and I must say we were very impressed. Having read the previous reviews I was aware of the nightclub and bar noise aspect and I was conscious of the fact. I was pleasantly surprised and need not have worried as we were not affected at all. Upon check in we were upgraded to having breakfast... More

Stayed two nights at Martello's for a wedding. The staff was absolutely lovely, very attentive and the food really nice and tasty. There is a lovely terrace and an outside area used for breakfast and as pub which is great fun. Unfortunately my room badly needed a good clean, particularly the bathroom that was in quite a state.
