We visited as a family on Sunday during the Air show. I was delighted to see a sign outside offering Carvery lunches and also to get seats at the front of the lounge looking out onto the seafront from which we could still see the air show. However when I went to order food I was very disappointed to discover... More

Have came here since I was a baby. My family love it and so do I. The owners are great. Margaret and John are so nice. The breakfasts are outstanding, plenty of value for money. The rooms maybe abit dated but that doesn't matter to me, it's a home from home. There is quite a lot of stairs so wouldn't... More

We were in Bray over the weekend and visited the Strand Hotel Lounge for their Carvery. The bar is dated could do with a bit of a lift. Feels very drab and dead. Every place we passed along the promenade was packed except for this one. We went to the carvery to be served by a gentleman who was sweating... More

A very convenient location and pleasant owners. But, were we alone in having problems with the toilet?? What a "waste" of water! so many repeated flushes required. It's a problem I have never encountered before.

We stayed at this B& B for two nights very recently. After reading the reviews I was slightly disappointed and would probably not stay here again. On arrival the room we had been offered was occupied and we were 'upgraded' to a family room which made me laugh. The double bed was more a piece of foam than a mattress... More

Really lovely and homly hotel. If you want Jurys or Raddission head into Dublin. This Hotel is in a class of its own. Family run and ever so helpful and friendly. Excellent Breakfast and great food in bar served daily. Right on seafront in bray and is close to dart and buses. Will be there again soon.

The hotel was originally a large house belonging to Oscar Wildes father, William, and is now owned by the Fitzsimons family, who offer a friendly personal service to all who visit. Great irish breakfast served up and the... More
