I booked family explorer package as we wanted 2 connecting rooms.We are a family of two adults and 3 kids. We like to able to watch tv at least while the kids sleep. Two days before we were due to go I got a call to say the inter connecting rooms were not available as they had over booked and would a family room or two double rooms be ok.This was very disappointing as it was too late for us to get another hotel. We ended up with an exec room which meant that one child was set up in the walk in wardrobe and this was after many phone calls from us. They did give us free kids meals as an extra but this is not why we booked this hotel.
The dinner that was part of the package was not very good, and not as it was advertised on the menu.
There are no signs to get to the hotel in Blanchardstown (which has very heavy traffic, kids went nuts in the car) when we asked for directions in a garage the man told us people are always asking for direction to this hotel.
The hotel is clean but worn looking. Overall the package is well priced if you get what is advertised but we did not and will not be back.
