“Fantastic at Christmas time”
Reviewed January 3, 2006

(young couple)
My husband and I stayed at the Westbury in mid December, Dublin is magical this time of year and full of christmas spirit. The Hotel was very clean the staff were very professional and friendly and the standard of accommodation excellent, best central location in my opinion alongside the exclusive shops & quietier bars but only a two minute walk from temple bar & o'connell street.
Wake up call was on the minute and very reasonable price, however there are no tea or coffee facilities in the room, disapointing when you have a very early am flight home. (returning to Dublin second week in Jan to another Jurys doyle hotel)

We stayed at the Westbury for our anniversary in December. This was our 2nd trip to Dublin and we decided to pay a bit more and have a 5* hotel. We were both really disapointed with the hotel and their bedrooms and found the staff and general atmosphere very "stuffy". The location off Grafton street is great but you would get better for your money elsewhere! After our first night we checked out and walked round to The Brooks Hotel in Dury Street where we stayed the 1st time we went to Dublin. This hotel is far better and the staff are far nicer! I have my own travel business and am very lucky to travel all over the world with my job, staying at all types and grades of hotels. I feel this one didn't deserve its 5* rating. It was such a shame as I just couldn't wait to leave.
