My partner and I spent the weekend at the CityNorth Hotel just outside Dublin. It was a successful weekend and I was very impressed by a number of things.
Our room was lovely, walls a little thin (especially when children are staying next door!!) but all in all very comfortable- we liked having free WiFi access in the rooms.
Food in the restaurant was beautiful- we had an evening meal which was well cooked and large portions.
Breakfast on the Saturday morning was lovely, made to order and very filling. On Sunday morning it was a hot buffet, I cant understand why they would choose the buffet for the busiest morning if they were trying to make an impression on guests, we felt let down that we didnt get a fresh option.
Staff were good but as I work in the trade I expect the receptionists to smile and say hello when I am passing reception, it helps so much!! Also, I wasn't impressed with having to wait while the receptionist finished her (very long) phone call. I only had a very small question and I expected them to at least put the call on hold and find out my query rather than ignore me.
Decor- beautiful! Loved the lounge area and fire, very relaxing. Also the free newspapers were a welcome addition.
Location is great for Dublin city and Newgrange.
All in all a great stay, with a few training issues ironed out it would be perfect!
