“Disgusting place - skid marked towels!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

Door opened by a woman in ripped jeans and vest who reeked of cigarette smoke. Showed us up to the room which smelt horrible and had insufficient curtains. No TV, despite one being advertised in the blurb on their website. The towels had brown excrement stains on them. We were only there to visit The Hinds Head in Bray, and so didn't really let the room bother us. She then told us we owed them £65 for the room and she wanted cash before we left for dinner. She was trying to con me - I'd already paid £45 on Expedia! She said it was wrongly priced on Expedia and tried to get another £20 off me. That room wasn't worth £5, let alone £65. The floor was noisy and people were in and out (as well as lots of noise from the floor above), until 4am. Absolutely awful, disgusting place. I needed a shower afterwards. Abhorrent. Avoid.
