We paid extra to upgrade our room. With the promise of more space and a coffee machine. We were given an end room which was extremely cold! We were given heaters instead of a change of room.

Stayed here one night with a group of friends,taking two rooms. Excellent value compared to many other hotels we looked at. Service was great from all members of reception staff,allowing us to store bags before check-in and after checkout. Despite the more upmarket nature of the hotel compared to our usual choices,and the fact the hotel isn't really aimed at...

Hotel convenient to port, room clean and large. Bed is like a rock and elevators do not have a safety stop on doors, they will close on you. Which counts for my bruises. There are some good restaurants walking distance to hotel

I've stayed before - location is good and it is adjacent to colleges for work. Was a Best Western Hotel up to February 2017 but this has been dropped. It means we'll, has...

It...

Stayed for one night with family flying out to Australia. Not much to say we booked this hotel as it was close to the airport and was in Dublin City. We booked a superior room and were happy we did, the room was clean and very well layed out with everything you could need including a safe. The bed was...
