Stayed at hotel for two nights. Due to having a baby we booked the family room as we thought we would have room to set up a cot. On checking in we were asked to repack our things to move to a different room the next day as they needed to do some work on the room we were staying in. An damn right they needed to!!! Couldn't get in the room for furniture, had to move two large arm chairs and a dressing table to be able to unpack and set up babies cot. Slight smell of mould, paint falling off the walls and huge cobwebs, wasn't impressed. Then the TV wouldn't work so my husband went to move the bed to see if it was switched on, the bedhead then fell and knocked all the wall socket off! Not a great start. Only the main room light worked, towels were thread bare and everything very tired and needing alot of TLC. We repacked in the morning and they moved our things to a better room, which I'm pleased to say was much better and what we expected for the price - Comfy bed and a good hot shower. When asked why they just didn't give us that room for two nights in the first place? "We wasn't sure if you had children or not"....This information would have been on the booking?! Although I stated that the room was totally unacceptable there was no refund or discount offered but a very polite level of ignorance as though they didn't know what I was asking or saying. "Your room is better now though, yes?" They need to raise their cleaning standards, replace chipped and broken glasses and jugs in the dining room and definately invest in a new highchair. Taxis to and from Dublin Centre (Temple Bar) 10Euro each way, cash machine, supermarket and takeaway about a 10 minute walk from hotel and the car park is tucked away behind the hotel. Carpark - Once you pass the hotel on your left, take next left and about 30yds on your left there is a narrow back alley to it. Hotel is very easy to find if arriving into Dublin Port.
