Stayed here for one night.
In favour of the hotel:
Staff - wonderful - helpful and friendly - tried v.hard.
Spa - excellent.
Bathroom products - devine.
Stairs - not a problem
Againt the hotel:
Shower flooded the bathroom.
Noise from road, i.e. drunks, fights, cars etc woke us up several times during the night.
Food - hugely overpriced.
Car park - none and Setanta car park a couple of streets away was full when we tried to use it.
Observed their Irish manager not being so nice to their foreign staff ... This was a bit of a turn-off. She seemed to even look down on her customers.
Overall this hotel is really lovely, the interior design is amazing but I wouldn't stay there again because it's too noisy, and we stayed on a week-night so I can only imagine what the weekend is like. ..
