I think this hotel is fantastic. I have just returned home from my second stay there. The rooms are very clean, big and beds extremely comfortable and warm. The bathrooms are large with a separate shower and bath. The smellies provided are lovely and a proper hair dryer is provided to use.

The gym is a great little gym with everything you need for a good cardio workout with decent free weights, machines and fitballs etc.

Breakfast at croake park is faultless. Full Irish breakfast, toast, cereals, continental and fresh fruit are all in offer, something for everyone.

It is a walk into the city, about 15 minutes but we walked it everyday and it's nice to look around. Easy enough to get the bus or taxis though if need be.

The staff are friendly and can't do enough to help. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

We stayed at this hotel between Christmas and New Year and were very impressed. Hotel is very clean, rooms are specious and light. Staff is very helpful and friendly. There is gym on site, free WI FI, hotel is only 10 min away from city centre and very easy to get to and from airport. Recommend.

My partner and I stayed here for four days in December 2013 and might I say this is what a hotel should be like! We were presented with fantastic staff who were willing to answer any question posed before them, a wonderfully presented room with a double and single bed (which allowed us to place our bags on them and allowed more space around the room!) and the bathroom was magnificent! It is the first time I have had a bath and enjoyed it in a hotel! For a fitness couple, the gym was great for a hotel standard, even offering some weights! Finally, the breakfast each morning was wonderful! We had breakfast included our first day and then paid 10 euros for each morning there after for a full Irish breakfast, definitely filled up for the day eating there! Which was good as the walk to Dublin city was about 20 minutes away which was very comfortable and easy. I was definitely impressed with the hotel and would recommend for others to stay as well.

The hotel markets itself as a high standard. Unfortunately the food standard was very poor and the bar/bistro staff lacked training. They were not vigilant or professional. They were however very friendly and willing, just not very capable.

During my one week stay I tried three meals, the remainder I chose to eat out.

1. Two Steaks was so dry they were inedible - Given numerous apologies and a two tickets to Guinness Storehouse. Hey mistakes happen, I gave them another chance.

2. Played it carefully and tried a bar snack - Cheese and pickle sandwich. I was expecting Irish soda bread with Kerrygold butter and a good Irish cheese! I got sliced white bread with no pickle, no presentation.

3. After avoiding the hotel food for the rest of the week we found it convenient to eat there on our
last night. I chose Scampi - Again poor quality lacking taste.

Very disappointed - but on the upside we got very fit walking the 20 each day to get our breakfast each day.

Room Tip: Avoid inner rooms with no view.

These reviews don't lie. A TOP hotel only 15-20 minute walk from O'Connell Street. Staff are brilliant, rooms are brilliant, facilities are brilliant and get some amazing Irish food from the restaurant. Can't recommend highly enough!

My family required two family rooms. We requested adjoining rooms but arrived early so that could not be accommodated. However getting two huge spotless rooms at 1pm only a few steps from each other was great. The breakfast was self service but substantial. The coffees teas and hot chocolates were served in huge pots to the table with loads of hot toast. The bar is on the expensive side but the staff are excellent friendly and professional. From start to finish brilliant service. Full marks
