This is my second visit to the Best Western Ashling Hotel situated at Parkgate, Dublin 8, Ireland.
I stayed for three nights before Christmas and this hotel was a very cosy base during my stay in Dublin. It is a very elegant and well managed hotel. Staff are friendly and helpful. Bedrooms are spacious,clean,comfortable and nicely decorated. On arrival I was given Room 421, the view was nothing to get excited about but the room itself was very nice with a flat screen TV, comfortable bed and tea/coffee making facilities which I really value while staying in any hotel.
I was due to fly back to London on Saturday afternoon with Aer Lingus but due to heavy snow in the South East of England I had to re-book in to the Ashling Hotel for an extra night. I was advised that my room type was no longer available and the receptionist wearing a nice smile gave me the keys to room 554. I could not believe my luck as I discovered Room 554 is an Executive Room overlooking Dublin's mainline Heuston station. The views were amazing and the room was equally amazing! This room had a much posher feel to it. Beautifully decorated and furnished. The en suite bathroom was very nice indeed having a rain shower and a built in hair dryer next to the sink.
This beautiful hotel puts a lot of effort in to it's buffet breakfasts and is well worth a visit during your stay. Service is friendly and efficient. Food is of high quality and the porridge is a great option especially if you end up staying here during arctic weather!
I thoroughly recommend the Best Western Ashling Hotel which offers a home from home ambience and is well situated being so near to Heuston station and the city centre is only five minutes away on the Luas light rail system.
Room 554 is well worth checking in to for all the above reasons!
