“Come with little expectations, then you will be fine”
Reviewed March 7, 2011

The location is quite good, close to food and pubs, and is far enough that you get quiet rest in the evenings. But the room cleanliness is quite disappointing. The cleaners never replace the bed sheets, until I feel ichy from the sheets and requested for a change the next morning. Overall, given the price, room size is ok, but not as clean as one would hope for. They do serve breakfast and dinner (dinner is not included), so, convenient if you are here to work and have little expectations on the accommodation.

We chose the hotel because it was 5 minutes walk from a weekend course we were attending, and because it offered free car parking - a breath of fresh air in Dublin. The folk on reception were not only friendly and cheerful but actually Irish (another rarity though I think they were the owners). The room was fine, a decent size and pleasantly quiet. Unusually for a hotel, during the two nights we stayed we were not disturbed by any noise either inside or out. There was no problem finding a space in the car park, even though the hotel was apparently full, and checkout on departure was quick and efficient.

Hotel breakfasts are rarely great for vegetarians so it was just as well we were happy with cereal, fruit, yoghurt and toast. Actually, these were very acceptable, though I think himself would have liked a couple of eggs had they been free-range. You daren't ask for mushrooms or tomatoes as a rule because they'll be cooked in the same fat as rashers and sausages.

My one complaint (and I nearly gave only 3 stars because of it) was the bed which, as has been said by other reviewers, needs replacing. I know we're in a recession but I do expect a hotel to have beds that are comfortable and where you don't wake your partner up every time you turn over because it sags and creaks. As a result we didn't sleep particularly well either night. The saving grace was that it didn't have those dreadful plastic matress covers that make you sweat.

It's probably worth adding that there is a deal on their website which offers 50% off the second night if you stay 2 days. Now it's not all that obvious - you really have to look carefully - and when I rang the hotel, the woman who took the call didn't seem familiar with the offer, which makes me wonder if many people pay more than they need to. Of course, I don't know that, so I'm only guessing.

But to the hotel's credit, on a weekend where there were various big events on in Dublin, unlike many of the other hotels (like the nearby Travelodge) they didn't hike their prices to cash in on this. Good for them! I usually stay at the Burlington but that weekend their prices were much too high. Next time, I'll certainly be considering the Uppercross House Hotel as well. But I'll ask if I can have a room with a decent bed.

Uppercross, Manager at Uppercross House Hotel, responded to this review, February 15, 2011
Dear reviewer,

Many thanks for the review which you left on TripAdvisor regarding your stay at the Uppercross Hotel. My apologies for the delay in responding you to.
I was delighted to hear that your stay was mainly a positive experience.

It is unfortunate that you were not satisfied with the quality of the bed in your room. I can assure you, recession or not - this is something we would have resolved, had we have known about it. With that in mind, I would appreciate knowing which room you stayed in so as I can insure the matress is replaced if it has not already been done. If you are not sure of the room number, you might give me your name so I can look it up.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We hope to welcome you again soon.

Kind regards,

Ann Marie Brannigan
Hotel Manager

We stayed in the Uppercross House & were very satisfied with the hotel. Good value 3 star hotel. The hotel layout is a bit all over the place but the room was clean, bathroom & shower etc. was great. The hotel is located on a main route into the city centre so there are loads of buses or taxis available. There are also some very lively bars and restaurants within a few minutes walk of the hotel.

We recently stayed at the Uppercross House Hotel on a weekend trip to Dublin and had a great time at this hotel. The place had a welcoming atmosphere, friendly helpful staff and it was very clean. We also had a cracker of a night in the adjoining Mother Reilly's bar and restaurant! Great value for money.

Luckily we only had one night here - the layout of the hotel is really odd, up and down, all over the place. The room was dark and shabby, bathroom tatty. There is no where to have a quiet drink as the only bar was in the pub attached and it was very lively. During the night nearby church bells chimed every hour, on-top of that, the bed was lumpy and wobbly, and the walls thin. We left very tired. The location isn't too bad - we were able to walk into the centre of Dublin (if you don't mind a 20 min walk).
