On arrival the staff were not overly welcoming and during our stay this sadly did not change. Even when passing in the morning to go to breakfast the staff wouldn’t look above computer to acknowledge. Bar staff wonderful, bar tenders name unknown but a cracking chap. Breakfast staff moody and non engaging. Rooms on first appearance wonderful, large, spacious and clean… two days in my bed sheet came away from the mattress and I was disgusted at the state of it!! Had I of known sooner I would have refused to sleep on it it was so filthy and stained! The bathroom tiles were cracked and loose. We’re we’re woken at 0550 hours due to fire alarms sounding, credit to the two young lads who were working as they made the best of a bad situation. I wouldn’t return to this particular hotel again due to beds and reception staff other than that nice place. Food was lovely. Breakfast delicious, staff did forget some bits on second day I think due to being busy, bacon was over cooked and rock hard.…
Reception staff were not very welcoming. When we were leaving we weren’t even asked if we enjoyed our stay. Our room was excellent and spotless. Bar is very dated and needs immediate attention as does the menu!! The Dublin barman, who’s name we didn’t get was very friendly and some of the other staff could take a leaf out of his book as they seemed to be going through the motions of dealing with the public. For a hotel in Dublin 4 the menu and staff apart from the above mentioned barman leave a lot to desired. For us as guests, friendly and welcoming staff are one of the most important assets of any Hotel. Unfortunately most of the staff failed miserably.
A boutique style hotel located 30 mins walk from the centre of Dublin but on a regular bus route. It is obvious that some thought has gone in to the decoration and facilities in the rooms. The hotel has a restaurant and bar and a large open car park to the rear, but no particular facilities for motorbikes, although there is a gate to the car park, I am not sure it was ever closed, or if there is CCTV. There is a regular bus service from just outside of the hotel, into the city. Our double room was very spacious, clean and nicely decorated, with a modern bathroom, containing a powerful shower, bath and twin sinks. Tea and coffee was provided, as was bottled water. The wifi was free and there was a good wifi signal, capable of supporting streaming, VoIP calls etc. There are plenty of USB style sockets, a large TV, iron and hairdryer. A special comment about how good the lighting was, particularly in the bathroom (and mirrors). The room also had a small patio area with seating.…
Beautiful hotel, Great location. Bus outside to short run into city centre or opposite way beaches fabulous decor all over.. Room is amazing. Staff from reception, bar, waiting staff were all very pleasant couldn't do enough for us. Bar food, party food and breakfast was all of a very high standard. Looking forward to a trip back
Wonderful location for a charming hotel outside the city center. The staff is fabulous, friendly and helpful. They are on a direct bus line to city center. 2 blocks away is a restaurant, grocery and pub with a few shops and coffeehouse. The hotel has a full service restaurant with Irish music in the evenings. The rooms are spacious with the best bathroom! Just a perfect place to stay in Dublin. I would highly recommend!
One of the best priced/nicest Guinness in Dublin. Staff sound and great place on a sunny day 🌞 Has off street parking for few cars. Great place before a match/concert in Aviva before madness of Ballsbridge
My daughter had an appointment at the US Embassy at 9am Monday morning so we decided to come up the night before. Am so happy I found this hotel! The room was lovely and clean and the shower I could have stayed in for hours! We ate downstairs and the food was fabulous ❤️ Christie in the bar was a true gentleman and looked after us very well! And we were treated to some fabulous music in the bar!!! The cocktails were good too 😜😜😜😜 we will most definitely come back again!!!
We stayed at this hotel for a total of three nights over the bank holiday weekend. It was our first time in Dublin. Overall we had a really nice stay but if we came back to Dublin, we would want something more central and suited towards a younger clientele (no disrespect to other guests). Pros: The rooms are absolutely huge - we were so impressed by the size! The bathroom is massive too and all the toiletries were refilled when requested. The bed was so comfy - genuinely one of the comfiest beds I’ve ever slept in Staff were friendly and welcoming Hotel bar good had a atmosphere Cons: The decor of the rooms just slightly let it down, it feels quite outdated. The reception and bar area seemed quite modern but then the rooms seemed really dated. A lot of paint work needed retouching in our room. Our curtains also had holes in and the carpets was stained. I had a really poor sleep the three nights we were there - the hotel is right on the main road and was really noisy. Traffic would quiet down around 1am but wake me up again around 5-6am. We assume the windows are single glazing as it was so noisy and it being an old building - it felt like they were open when they were intact shut. My sleep was awful due to this, I had to sleep with pillows over ears and ear plugs to block out noise. We did contemplate asking reception for room swap to back of hotel as my sleep was really disrupted but my partner slept really well so it was just individual preferences We did feel the hotel was quite far out from city for a younger couple who wanted to see the city we replied on bus or taxi in and taxis got quite pricy and hard to come by due to the poor weather - you could walk but it would be about 30-50 minutes Tip: Make use of the bus stops right outside the hotel - we used taxis for the first two days and spent a fortune. Used the bus on the last day, much cheaper and easy to figure out…
I am taken aback at how comfortable I felt in this absolute gem of a hotel on the outskirts of Dublin city centre. Lovely food, brilliant cocktails for the mrs and stunning perfect Guinness. Bar staff absolutely on point, rooms superb and such old fashioned great hospitality. Thank you for making our weekend perfect. Will defo make this our go to Dublin hotel. A+++++
Lovely hotel in South Dublin. 30 min walk from city centre. Bus route outside. Lovely park nearby. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was quiet and spacious (202) Bathroom was superb, very spacious, Bed comfortable. Did not eat there, so cannot comment. My only recommendation is to change the cheap looking black furniture and especially the sofa which is far to low and uncomfortable to sit on. Due to location and friendliness of staff, will be back again.
