Stayed recently for one night in the Grand Hotel. It is in the lovely village of Malahide and is situated just a couple of minutes walk from the village centre in one direction and looks to the sea in the other direction.
The public areas are fine - perhaps faded glory feel to much of the place, although with obviously some money having been spent on the lobby area itself. The reception staff were pleasant and helpful.
The room was where the missing touches were noticed - despite being a 4 star, there was no minibar in the room, no dressing gowns, only the most basic of toiletries, a heated towel rail that wouldn't switch on, a small TV that was quite some distance from the bed, a shower head that came to upper back region due to the low bathroom roof, not that clean with a long hair in the sink. On the plus side, the room was warm, the bed comfortable and the view of the bay excellent. On the whole though a bit disappointing for 4 stars.
