We arranged to have lunch here. Staff were excellent. Food was not memorable. We wanted to sit on the outer sides of the veranda due to one of our party having health issues that can be affected by smoking and direct sunlight. It would have been a god area to sit in due to the wind factor but management refused... More

It was an improptu stop over in Bray and found out that if you book online you can get a way better deal than just walking in, even if you do it right in the lobby. It was a clean and adequate room. The hotel is just across the street from the sea and has picnic benches in front. A... More

Recently the Martello played host to 39 golfers from Anglesey, Bull Bay Golf Club to be exact. Now, this collection of discerning (mature) gentlemen have been visiting this part of the world annually for over 25 years and have been through many hotel experiences. We stayed for 3 nights and this was one of the best places we have been... More

Stayed at the Martello Hotel last weekend on a hen party package. Everything was top class, from our arrival to our departure and everyone we encountered was helpful & friendly. The food was top class & the hotel was most helpful in organising the whole hen party package; ensuring all of requirements were catered for. I would highly recommend the... More

After a very tiring week, staying in some less than good hotels, right through from Belfast to Cork, I arrived at the Martello after a long drive from Waterford. First impressions, an excellent, efficient receptionist; asked for a quiet room and got it. Plenty of space; impressively spotless. Bathroom was impeccable; as good as many 5* hotels I have stayed...

I stayed at the Martello with a party of 24, some of whom have the audacity to call themselves golfers, and we had a cracking time, if you want a quiet weekend away then this is probably not the place for you.
