I did not stay overnight at the Gresham but attended a Christmas party there and was quite disappointed by the experience. There was a nice festive atmosphere in the lobby for the mulled wine reception but we were quite a long time waiting to be called for dinner. Our party was split into two separate tables which was not what we had expected. There were only 2 menus on the table for 7 people and waiting staff appeared before we had even settled into our seats to take our orders. The meal itself was not great, I would go so far as to say that the soup was terrible(tasted very much like cheap packet soup). The salmon was tasteless. However, some of our party had the turkey and ham which was quite nice. There was a long delay between the starter and main course. The waiting staff were pleasant but seemed under pressure. One of the bar staff had an extremely poor manner. The highlight of the night was definitely the music. The band were quite good and the dj played a good selection of music. All in all I don't think that the night was worth €45.
