If you are looking for a quiet, relaxed and elegant stay in an affordable B&B in a charming location, the Pembroke Townhouse is for you. It is a mid priced B&B (cheaper than the city centre hotels) but with comfortable accomodation and an excellent location. Ballsbridge (where the Pembroke is located) is one of the most affluent areas of Dublin and is leafy and charming with lots of period properties. It is only a pleasant 10 minute walk to St Stephen's Green. Lots of nice restaurants nearby and a few pubs - I recommend Roly's and the restaurant at the nearby Four Seasons.
The communal areas of the hotel are lovely with a rich colour scheme. A good breakfast is provided (I loved their breads!) and during the day you can help yourself to tea, coffee and cookies. If you want tea and coffee making facilities in your room, bring a travel kettle. Our room had a lovely sash window. The bathroom had bath with overhead shower and the bathroom suite looked new and was immaculately clean. The room was not huge but was big enough for our needs with twin beds and enough storage space. A small TV was on a bracket on the wall but it had plenty of channels and we were more than happy with it. Our room faced the road but we were not disturbed by traffic noise and we got a good night's sleep. We found the mattress and sheets comfortable but the pillows could have been a bit bigger and fluffier - that is my only fault.
There is a lift in the hotel. However, to enter the hotel from the street you need to climb a steep flight of stairs so this might not be suitable for people with mobility problems.
Service was professional and friendly, staff were smartly turned out and polite.
I found our stay really relaxing and it was a great base for our trip to Dublin. I would love to return.
