This time round the standard has improved slightly but the following problems still remain. Alot of marks on the walls in the rooms. Curtain rail broken. Top of the wardrobe very dirty... More

Had a fabulous one night stay, the staff especially the management were amazing! Antonio (I think) gave the warmest of welcomes! Lovely hotel off the Dublin road with great access to Kildare village & Newbridges museum of style icons.

The lobby doesn't have the presence of what you would expect for 4 star. Can't complain though as it was a pleasant stay. Staff were very nice. Gym was decent. Underground parking with plenty of space. Price of drinks in bar were expensive. Overall, very good hotel

Restaurant closes at 14:30 of Sunday. The bar area serves good food, but small seating area which results in no seating, or waiting around for a seat and loud match on tv. When busy staff seem to try persuade you to try other restaurants in the town? Not four star service for me.

Oh gosh, what did I find fault in this time? Certainly not the rooms, as they are lovely and it was very modern, clean and enjoyable to stay in. My only gripe and reason why I didn't give 5 out of 5 is due to being disturbed by the cleaning staff and having someone attempt to enter the room when... More
