“great hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

Stayed as got a very cheap deal on booking.com wasnt expecting much as was so cheap 35euro,
hotel was excellent very clean only 30mins from Dublin.
Dunnes right next to hotel for anything u need lovely wee river between them, bedrooms very clean comfy great nights sleep.
Ate in the bar food was nice nothing over the top, didnt have breakfast so cant comment.
If you have a car 10min drive away another lovely town and beach.

would 100% reccommend this hotel.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

We were traveling to an event the next day, and broke our journey in Parkview Hotel. We got a good deal on hotels.com, the room was comfortable, clean and sufficed for our night away.
We ate in the bar on the night, my partner had monkfish goujons in tempura batter, I had scampi. The monkfish tasted better than the scampi, but that was a personal taste, both were fresh and good portion sizes. The bar was packed that night, and continued serving food till 10.
Just wished the breakfast next morning, full irish was not deep fat fried, apart from eggs, but this seems to be a common solution in many hotels these days.
Staff were friendly and helpful.

Spent two nights in this hotel recently. Got a great offer midweek - two nights bed & breakfast and one dinner for E79 pp. The rooms are large, bright & immaculate. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The restaurant staff in particular were a joy with deal with and couldnt do enough for us. The dinner which was included was off the main menu & was absolutely fab! There is ample, free parking on site. Newtownmountkennedy is a great location to explore wicklow - Glendalough less than 20km away. A fine hotel. Would definitely stay here again.

Easy to find
Good location for exploring the wicklow mountain area and mount usher gardens.
Amazing room, massive bed, lovely bathroom
Let down by being on a busy main road
I asked for a quiet room yet was given a room at the front of the hotel and the sun streaming through the curtains and the noise from the road woke me up very early.
I would recommend asking for a room at the back of the hotel
And dont leave anything behind. I left a hat behind and they said they couldnt find it but it was definitely left in the room.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the hotel rather than at the front to avoid road noise

My friend had her wedding at this hotel in August 2012. It was a lovely day and we enjoyed the side area overlooking the pond. The hotel, bar and rooms are all beautifully decorated. The staff are lovely.

My only criticism would be the food, I thought it was pretty average.
