“Beautiful location, great sea views.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014

Decided to revisit Portmarnock during the week and stay thursday evening on a good deal. On arrival we were warmly welcomed by the receptionist. Asked for a sea view upgrade and were pleasantly surprised to get it! Room 304. Great sea view and quiet part of the hotel. Great. Room clean and tidy. Love it here. Good for a wee break and not to far to travel to get here from Northern Ireland. Easy access to the beach and coastal walks. Close to Malahide and Howth or to catch a dart train into Dublin if you wanted! Even asked if able to have later check out and was able to stay until 1pm. Brilliant. No rush to checkout. The hotel may never come up to 5 star rating but has lots of good qualities if you want a restful day or two away. This is our third time here and we will be back again..... Recommend all to try.

Room Tip: We love to get a sea view room but not along the main corridor from the lounge area. Go upstairs for...

The hotel staff were very accommodating and helpful. No fuss received from any request made. Booked for two night, extended stay for 5, platter of sandwiches at 4am after a long night, borrow of a phone charger after leaving mine at home. Room was large and clean - great selection of TV channels which astonishingly included Sky Sports, BT Sports and Setanta. By far the best value for money stay and experience from any hotel I have had the pleasure of staying in. Make the most the current offers!

This hotel is in a great location on the coast, for those who enjoy long walks on the beach (no pun intended!) this is ideal. Its a 20 min walk to Malahide along the coast, and Dublin city is accessible by the bus. Extra bonus is the Italian restaurant (turn right out of the hotel and walk 1 minute, its on the left) called Lali's - Really good food and well priced for the set menu!!!. Now the hotel, it is very well presented with a modern interior and the staff there could not be friendlier. They were very accommodating for all our requests and they really are a bonus to the hotel. The niggles: The food and drink, whilst nice, is expensive. A lunch for 2 adults and a child was around 40 odd euros. We asked for a small glass of milk for our toddler which was a whopping 2.95 euro's.....very costly when you imagine how much milk a small child drinks. With the food, the chips come salted; whilst I may add salt myself, I don't think it is suitable to salt the chips for the kiddies meals too - we spent many a meal trying to brush the salt of his food. And last niggle as a parent - highchairs need to be kept in a very good condition; we had a broken tray on one, a harness that wouldn't fasten on another and one that needed a good clean down. I appreciate this isn't a 'family orientated' hotel as most people there were there to play golf or take in the beach but I think this is a basic item to check. Would we go back??? Yes, despite my niggles it was a really nice hotel in a great location and we look forward to exploring more of the area on our next visit.

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking the garden - must admit we did not hear ANYONE from the rooms either side...

This is out third short stay at this hotel and once again it was extremely good. The hotel has a great location and the staff are welcoming and friendly. It is lovely to walk along the seafront to Malahide or along the beautiful beach. The rooms are good , well equipped with very comfortable beds. The food is very reasonable priced and although not fine dining it is good. Breakfast is very good with hot food made to order.
We would definitely return for a fourth stay.

We had a midweek stay here for one night. Excellent service from everyone. The staff on reception were so friendly.

We were upgraded to a very large room overlooking the sea. Rooms were modern and well equipped. There is no fridge but for a short stay, that wasn't a problem. It was so quiet & the the beds were one of the most comfortable I have slept in.

We walked into Malahide which took around an hour along the sea front. It's a lovely walk and well worth it as Malahide is a gorgeous little town to look around with a fantastic selection of restaurants.

We ate in the hotel and thought the standard of meal was excellent. We finished off our evening with a drink in the Jameson bar in the hotel. It's a very cosy and welcoming bar.

Breakfast was in our package and there was a very good choice and the cappuccino was fabulous!

We would definitely consider staying at this hotel again - very clean, welcoming and comfortable.

Room Tip: Try and get a room with a view.

I've only just checked in but already we know it will be a great stay. Our check was seem less. We were served by Rachel, who couldn't have been more helpful and went out of her way to check in the other members of our family.

We have stayed her a few times before, and this place never disappoints. I'm sure this time will be no different.
