We stayed in the Mespil as we were here for a wedding nearby. We had stayed here before a few years ago and were more than happy to return but this time we were disappointed. The rooms were tired and dated and really could do with upgrading, in fact the hotel itself could do with an make over!
The rooms were of an average size, clean, tea/coffee facilities/fruit; the wi fi was not the best (which we did require and the phone didn't work - didn't really buy the reason given to us by the hotel staff either). The bathroom again was quite dated but adequate.
The breakfast was repetitive and unimaginative - however it does seem to provide a carvery lunch which all the nearby office workers come along to. The bar staff were friendly but prone to spilling drinks (pints of guinness and coffees!), not good and no coasters on the tables, we had to hunt for them at the bar so the lounge was a little messy. Food was also nothing to write home about, we only ate here once and will not again.
What this hotel does have going for it is the following: location is brilliant, the air coach goes nearby - plenty of buses and the dart is not far. The Baggot Street area is terrific for bars and restaurants, you will be spoiled for choice.
The other good thing about this hotel is that it has underground parking which in this area is a premium and there is a car hire outlet a 2 minute walk away on Haddington Road.
As there are other hotels in the area we will not return and the price was also not that competitive - we only stayed here again because we had stayed here before.
