Old building, carpets need to be changed, Breakfast is basic and if you are getting toward the end not much left. Location is great but this hotel has not been renovated for years. With a little effort it could be a nice spot.

We were staying there for a week end of June. All in all the hotel is ok but we had expected more! The breakfast was ok. We were offered continental as well as Irish breakfast - nevertheless for me fresh fruit and a bigger variety of cereals were missing. My partner, who tried the Irish, was not really happy either....

I stayed in this hotel over the weekend with 2 friends. The location of this hotel is great, on the beach front. The hotel decor is a little dated, but we found the beds very comfy and the shower was amazing. This is def not a 5star hotel but I would stay here again, we literally used this hotel as... More

It is located at the quieter end of the promenade in Bray, which is what we wanted. The first problem was when I sat on the end of one bed, it gave way under me on one side where it was clearly broken. I lay in the bed and it was ok, a bit sunken but ok. The TV was... More

My wife and I stayed here on the 24th June 2015, The hotel had a sign as you went through the front door excusing the work being carried out. We saw no evidence of any work. The hotel front was once very grand, but now is a little tired with loose slates on the roof. The rooms were not good... More

If I could take it or leave it, I would probably leave it. The floor of my room had hair balls on it. I could hear my loud neighbors yelling at each other and talking to each other in the hall late at night. It woke me up a few times. The staff was not that outwardly friendly. I probably... More

Hi Jennifer Thanks so much for taking the time to review your stay with us. Did you contact our night manager regarding the noise in your neighbouring room? Unfortunately if we are not made aware of noise from other guests, we cannot rectify the problem. Thanks for your review, and I do hope we have a chance to welcome you... More
