Just back from an overnight stay at the Grand Canal Hotel. We choose this hotel as it was close to the RDS where we were saw the fantastic Bruce Springsteen gig. And... because it was good value and offered free parking.
I was very impressed by the security in the hotel, you cannot access the bedroom floors without inserting your room key card into a slot in the lift. And the night receptionist also checked our room key when we returned to the hotel at night. It's reassuring to come across a hotel that takes guest's security seriously.
Our room was on the small side, but had all the necessaries. And a first that I've come across- free Wi-Fi!!! . The room was absolutely spotless - even under the bed - I dropped an earring and had to pull the bed out to retrieve it - and noticed that the floor under the bed was just as clean as the rest of the bedroom floor. Well done to the house keeping staff.
It's a pity there is no fridge in the room - it would have been nice to have somewhere to keep drinks cool, as it was even the UHT milk had gone off with the heat. But that's just a small complaint.
I would definitely recommend this hotel, good location, about 20 mins walk to city centre, parking if needed, friendly staff, spotlessly clean and good value! Ticks all the boxes....
