This was our first trip to Dublin and this was a suprise trip for my wife's birthday, plus it was our first trip away without the children. So It needed t be fun and special without any gripes.
After having read many many reviews, it was in the perfect location, in fact it couldn't have been any better. We arrived very early (9am) to make full use of our few days, the staff were really helpful, and even offered us a room now if we were happy to accept a smoking room. We declined and said we would rather wait, they held onto our bags in a secure location and told us that they could have a room ready for us at lunchtime if we wanted. Again we declined, stating that we would be out for the day so we were in no rush. After a full days walking and sightseeing, we headed back to the hotel, again the staff were so very helpful and took us to our room.
The room itself was nothing special, and was probably in need of a bit of decoration, and maybe the maid could have done a bit better with the duster as we had a few cobwebs.
But do not let that spoil your stay, the staff were brilliant, the rooms are clean enough to not be concerned, the food at breakfast is fantastic, the location is perfect, the gym is a great little gym. Overall we had a great time there for lots of different reason. and would happily go there again, and would definately anyone else to go there. For what you pay it really is VALUE for money.
