We have just returned from a wonderful three night romantic stay. The hotel's exterior is subtle but the foyer and drawing rooms are superb. The atrium down to the room was lovely and the room was very comfortable with all the touches you would expect at a 5 star hotel. The staff were mostly great and could not help you enough. All in all a great hotel but there were some very very minor drawbacks and it is the little things in a hotel that take it to the next level.
The service in No.23 Bar was great the first night, however the second night the female member staff lacked accomodability. I had asked for crisps as I do not like nuts and I was served them on the first night however the second night she refsued, stating that she would charge us and was not flexible on the matter. Given the style and class of the hotel, a little charm would not have gone a miss,
The Spa is quite small and lacking a Sauna and Jacuzzi, however the pool is of a adequate size and the steam room is excellent.
And finally the price of food. Alcohol in the bars etc was reasonably priced but the food was out of this world. Now I have stayed at some of the best hotels in the world, but even their prices weren't close to this hotel. 30 euros for a pizza in the room does seem excessive.
But apart from these little trifles, the hotel was superb and I will return if we ever go back to Dublin.
