Just back from a two night stay with my boyfriend, as it was my birthday. We had heard that this hotel was supposed to be amazing in everyway. When we arrived the staff were very friendly and park your car for you no matter what time of the day or night - god knows where however! Staff were all very attentive and helpful, carrying bags etc. The hotel is slightly smaller than i imagined and was decorated in the brightest tackiest colours imaginable - pink, black and silver. I think they are attempting to create a 5 star hotel, but are certainly missing a trick when it comes to class. Nouveau riche springs to mind! The hotel caters for two types of guest im my mind - couples or early to middle aged hen parties / ladies whom lunch!
The spa was nice, slightly corporate as opposed to luxurious - very dark as were all of the hotel corridors. The room was nice, but again, not a 5 star hotel as everywhere we turned reminded us of the price we had to pay for simple pleasures - for example there was an umbrella in the waredrope with a €30 sign around it!
Breakfast was plentiful and varied, if not slightly bland - but again if you are not on an B&B basis, then prepare to pay €25 for a basic, but a la carte breakfast! We asked to watch the Ireland vs France World Cup match, but the hotel wasnt showing it, though they did offer to put it on for us in the Corporate meeting room, so we walked across the road to the Huntsmann Inn hotel and had a nice meal and drinks there for the match with great atmosphere.
Overall we enjoyed our stay here and staff will go that extra mile, but if I was going to go back, i would only stay for one night. It is certainly not worth the price - there are far nicer classier hotels to stay in, even in Dublin! Also, make sure that you are in your best attire, as there is an air of ''pretence'' over the hotel.
