Recently used the carvery. Good choice with plenty to eat at very competitive prices. I had the roast beef - absolutely first class! And they cater for groups too.

Have also tried their "early bird" in the main restaurant. Again, they offer a quality "a la carte" menu at reasonable prices. Definitely worth a visit. We'll be back!

I am working near to Dublin airport so needed a hotel that I could stay in for a couple of months. The airport hotels are just too faceless for a long stay for me.

This hotel was recommended by people from my office, so I booked for a week to give it a go. I have now lived here for about a month and have brought my other team members over to stay as well.

Reception staff are very friendly and efficient - they make me feel like I am a returning friend when I arrive late on a Sunday night.

The rooms are big, spacious and whilst not decorated in a modern style, they are clean and functional.

The aircon has also proved to be of good quality, warming the room quickly and quietly.

The beds are very comfortable and I usually don't want to leave them in the morning!

In the evenings, I head down to the Harp bar which is part of the hotel but also a pub used by the local people and this I really like - its far more friendly than most hotel bars.

Oh they serve just the best Guinness!

I tend to eat at the bar where there is a good choice of options and the quality is very good. I have also eaten in the restaurant and found the food and service to be excellent.

Breakfast is cooked for you with a good choice from the menu, suplimented by a fair buffet selection.

There is a nightclub and I note that some visitors have had trouble with the noise, but I can't comment as it has not effected me - suspect it is a weekend problem and maybe on which room you are allocated.

I have found the hotel to be quiet and although it has regularly been fairly full, it does not feel like it - nice.

Why do I continue to stay here - Good rooms, in Swords town which has a good choice of pubs and restaurants, Excellent Guinness and above all fantastic staff.

I will miss this hotel when my project is over.

Room Tip: If you are affected by noise ask for a room away from the nightclub.

My wife and I stayed in this hotel on a Friday night prior to leaving Ireland and had one of our all time worst hotel stays in our life. At 11:00 PM music started shaking the walls and did not stop until 3:00 AM. I first called down to the receptionist and they said they would "look into it." After about ten minutes of absolutely no improvement I made a stop down at the reception and received the message: "It's Friday night and we are hosting an event." Basically that I was foolish enough to rent a room in this dump. This hotel has a three star rating, but giving it more than one should be a crime. Do whatever you can not to stay in this hotel.

Room Tip: Stay away from this hotel. Sleeping in the dumpster behind a crummy restaurant would be a huge impr...

I had a short experience two weeks ago. The room was comfortable, big, top clean.
When I requested an adaptor for my phone, the sir at the reception could not help at the evening, but the lady in the morning did! Breakfast was average.

I had a most enjoyable experience at this eating venue. The last sitting on a Saturday night was for 7pm which was fine. Food was faultless, Staff were friendly and efficient and all in all cannot wait to go back.
