Roxford Lodge Hotel
Ranked #10 of 150 Hotels in Dublin
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 25, 2010

Stayed here for a brief visit to Dublin. Just outside the city centre, the Roxford Lodge is located at a beautifull street ,a pleasant walk away from the busy city centre. The modern rooms are very well equiped and clean. The beds are good, small balcony, nice tv-set (with DVD player and DVD's to choose from), bubble bath and sauna in the room. The building is beautifully restored.
It is a family run hotel, which makes the service excellent. Breakfast is good, you can give your order and the kitchen will prepare your choice of breakfast.
Pricing is fine. The Roxford Lodge is a lovely alternative for the mainstream hotels (which often look the same and where staff is not always service-focused). Don't focus on being in the city centre, the Roxford Lodge is just 15-20 minutes walk away from the city centre.

My boyfriend and I enjoyed our stay at the Roxford Lodge immensely. We chose it based on the reviews here and we weren't disappointed. Our room was on the basement, but totally unlike the typical basement rooms: we had a small terrace outside, so the room had enough light, and we could come and go through the terrace instead of using the hotel's main entrance.

We were given a triple room, although we were paying for a double. Each bed had its own TV, and we also had a sauna, a printer and a fax in the room. The room and bathroom were very clean, although the room was a bit crammed. The bathroom wasn't very big, but it wasn't small, either. Everything looked new.

The breakfast quality was good and the Irish breakfast and the toasts were prepared as we ordered them.

The hotel is located in one of the best neighbourhoods in Dublin, it was a 20-minute walk from the hotel to the city centre. We never took the bus.

The staff were very nice and extremely helpful. They even checked and printed some bus timetables for us one day we wanted to go to the outskirts of the city.

If we ever go back to Dublin, we would probably stay there again.

I stayed here for a weekend trip with my other half. From start to finish I was very impressed with the quality of service and attention to detail. We where lucky enough to get a lovely upgrade to Room 120. What a nice surprise that was. 3 stories, little kitchen, big jacuzzi with a tele, and a lovely sauna. On top of that there was a computor with working internet, fax and printer.
The room was spacious, clean and very practical. Breakfast in the morning was exellent and cooked to order. What a difference to chain hotel groggy breakfasts.
The staff where extremely friendly, and helpfull and coffee and tea complementary as much as you want.
Its about 10 minutes from the city centre, but easy accesible walking and a bus stop right in front of their door. Very quiete at night which is a good thing as city hotels can be noisy.
I would defenitly use and reccommend this hotel!!!!

The room was everything we could have asked for and more - thought we had been given the wrong room at first as there was so much included for a very reasonable price - sauna, spa, computer, printer, kitchenette 4 poster bed etc etc. Breakfast was fantastic too as were the friendly staff and service. Found a great little pub around the corner. Will definitely (and have already) reccomend it friends and family.

Stayed here for one night with my wife and 9 year old son in a triple room. The duty manager Des could not do enough and was incredibly helpful, knowledgable and professional. We have visited Dublin many times for short breaks and have been tired of the noise and formality of larger chain hotels. This hotel is a beautiful 4 story old Georgian propert located 15 minutes stroll from the city centre in the upmarket Ballsbridge area. There is a practically direct bus from the airport and a regular bus service right outside the hotel if required. The Dart rail network is 10 minutes walk as is the new national stadium. The area is quiet and classy. close enough to the city but far enough away to enjoy a relaxing time. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The 3rd bed was a full size single and easily fit in the room. The sauna in the room is a nice touch although we did not use it. The breakfast is outstanding and little benefits as in the free use of the internet, wi-fi and tean and coffee make the difference. We are seasoned Dublin travellers and you will not get better value, better staff (Des - top bloke!) and better location. First class!!

We stayed there twice. On our first arrival the room was quite small for three people. Since we only stayed for two nights, it was bearable. The room was clean and the hosts were friendly and accommodating. The breakfasts were wonderful. Plenty of on-site parking. Easy walking distance to downtown.

On our second return, we were upgraded without requesting it. To our pleasant surprise, we stayed in their penthouse room, which actually was an apartment. Very comfortable for long term stays. Sadly for us, we were staying for only one night. We arrived by taxi from the airport. It was a tight fit with all our luggage and three people in a small car with small trunk space. However, the driver was pleasant and even set-up a taxi van to take us to the airport the next morning. That driver was pleasant as well and full of information. He made a wonderful tour guide for our ride from the hotel to the airport.

My wife, teenage daughter and I just came back from a trip to Europe that included a 5-night stay at the Roxford Lodge Hotel (RL). I decided to stay at the RL due to the good reviews here at TripAdvisor, the problem of finding a triple downtown at a reasonable cost, and the fact that it was reportedly quiet - I'm a light sleeper.

At first I was hesitant when told we'd be on the ground floor - I always think people walking by will be looking in - but the very nice patio that the room looked out on made up for it, even if the patio was shared by other rooms and indeed we sometimes had to keep the curtains closed for privacy.

The room was L-shaped and quite large - my wife and I of course took the double bed while my delighted daughter slept 'around the corner' in a bed with her own TV. The fact that the room was large was offset by the fact that there was a big sauna in the room - I'd read about it but really think the RL should consider removing them - without them the hotel would lose some quirkiness but gain a lot more useable room.

The staff was great - coffee and/or tea w/cookies offered pretty much every time you return, and delivered to your room. I had trouble connecting to their free wi-fi and was very happy when offered a network cable to connect with instead, free of charge. The breakfast was a la carte or cooked to order, with french toast my favorite.

My only caveat was that the hotel is a ways from the town center. While only 15-20 minutes the walk itself passes very safe but fairly drab buildings - kind of makes the walk a drag instead of fun exercise, especially after walking all day in the town center. On the other hand Dublin seems to have a vast bus system, and if you want to ride you won't walk far or wait long.

Lastly, if you go here, be sure to take a left out of the hotel and eat at the nearby restaurants in the direction away from the town center. The first day there was no one at the desk to ask and we ended up going on the long walk towards the city mentioned above just to find something to eat - we learned the next day to take a left vs a right for nearby dining.
