I really enjoyed this hotel, sadly only had three nights here but would come back when next in Dublin.
I arrived jet-lagged and tired to a very warm welcome from Linda and I was in time for a lovely cooked breakfast and some friendly conversation with other guests in the conservatory/breakfast room.
We were two friends travelling together, meeting in Dublin after our respective flights. (we live in two different countries) We had a twin room (number 33 in the Georgian building) which was lovely, high ceilings, comfy beds, very nicely decorated, a dresser to unpack into and enough hanging space in the wardrobe.
The bathroom was very nice and I liked that it was quite separate from the bedroom, you could close the door to the bedroom and there was a small vestibule and bathroom off that.
The breakfast which was included in the price was fantastic, lots of different cooked choices plus a continental selection of fruit, yogurt, cereal etc. Delicious porridge!! It was all delicious in fact, and the servers were all delightful and efficient. After the breakfast here we were set up until dinner.
There were quite a few stairs to climb but this did not bother us, we are not exactly young anymore but we are fit.
We also enjoyed the walk into St.Stephen's Green and the centre of the city, did not find it far at all. Mind you, we are walkers and both enjoyed looking at the lovely old buildings and taking in the neighbourhood.
We were given some local restaurant recommendations by Linda and enjoyed both of them very much, and they were an easy walk from the hotel.
On our last day we had a really interesting chat with Noel. Could have sat there all day chatting but we had more of Ireland to explore!
