“Afternoon Tea and scones at its best!”
Reviewed May 18, 2014 via mobile

If you care for a civilized cup of tea, second flush Darjeeling for example, to help wash down the scones with clotted cream and jam, this is the place to have it!
Impeccable!
Friendly and knowledgable service throughout.
Always a pleasure to be here!

We stayed 3 nights. Rooms were small but adequate (after all you are in a big city and space is at a premium) Staff was friendly and helpful, more than happy to assist you. Lobby is beautiful and huge! This is where you can have afternoon tea (starting @ 1:30 PM) or just a sandwich, beverage or dessert. We did the tea which was excellent, the best scones we had in Ireland!. This was during the week, the lobby seems more crowded on weekends. Breakfast was also a treat, the buffet had absolutely everything you could imagine and you can also custom order your breakfast. But several others complained about slow service. We did have trouble getting the attention of the waiter staff at times. Good location to walk to museums.

In the centre of Dublin beside grafton street and st Stephens green. 5 min walk to temple bar and the theaters. 5 star in every way. Concierge take your car and look after parking. Luggage left to room. We were upgraded without asking to a exec suite. It was a huge room with 3 Tvs and the height of luxury. All this without breaking the wallet. Top class

Afternoon tea in the Westbury is a salubrious affair.
We were ushered to our seats and were promptly brought a  glass of chilled champagne.

It's served in a beautiful plush area. Girls in black dresses and neat figures heap attendance on you. We spotted two famous people, an actor and a politician.

The food comprises of decrusted, delicate sandwiches on white  and brown bread served on a silver platter.
The way I should be served everyday!

The cake stand was preceded by a melt in the mouth white chocolate mousse served in a small glass bowl.

Now the cake stand was to die for, delicious, delicate cakes and melt in the mouth scones.

It was a lovely,sunny afternoon and the place was full.

Go spoil yourself (50€ approx per person).

We stayed this past week at the Westbury Hotel in Dublin. The hotel is situated in the center of the busy Dublin streets, with easy access to stores and restaurants right outside the front door.
The first thing we noticed as we entered the lobby are the magnificent flower arrangements.
The lobby, restaurant and bar areas are beautiful. Everyone is happy and accommodating, and the staff is always smiling. We knew immediately that we had chosen the best place to stay.
Our large suite room was delightful and had a super comfortable bed. . Every morning we received chocolates and every evening we received turndown service, also with a smile.
We met our friends each evening before dinner in the large bar and lounge area. As a non drinker, I asked Shannon, the bar tender, to make me a non- alcoholic drink called an egg cream.
( no eggs involved) . He was more than happy to do so, and it was delicious. We all had a great laugh about it.
The concierge service was excellent here, more so than in other 5 star hotels where we have stayed. Nothing we asked for was too small or large for them to accomplish.
We would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again, for sure!

We spent 5 nights here on the first part of our visit to Ireland. The hotel as others have said is very centrally located, and we walked where ever we wanted to go. The shopping was impeccable, and there were many pubs and such to choose from. We enjoyed the quietness of the hotel, which was a surprise to me since it is right in the middle of everything! The staff was very friendly, and extremely helpful when we had questions where to find certain places. I would absolutely stay here again if we ever return to Dublin!!
