“Executive room not up to standard”
Reviewed November 30, 2012 via mobile

Stayed here for business. Wifi was very expensive. Desk was too high to work with a laptop. TV was very bad signal. Complained but nothing was done about it. Room service menu basic. Maze through corridors to get fron one part to the other. Nice location and views but don't expect too much of the rooms.

I have stayed at the Grand Hotel in Malahide many times with my wife and on each occasion had a wonderful time. I also have repeated my stays with friends and family on a few occasions. I am just back from a stay this weekend and was very disappointed with my time spent there. I stayed in room 272 and the bedroom was very very cold. I feel the hotel did not let the heat stay on long enough in the bedroom. My stay was from Friday 23rd Nov to Sunday 25th November 2012.
Whilst my two friends did stay with me in room 112 their room was fine and even stretched to being too warm.
My room was in the older part of the hotel but management need to reconsider their current policy regarding the switch on time for their heat in this wing of the hotel.
A disappointed customer.

Room Tip: check the up to date heating policy

We have just had the most enjoyable three day break at the Grand Hotel. The hotel has the most wonderful position overlooking the sea in Malahiide.The staff are a credit to the hotel, from the minute you arrive until you are leaving they can not do enough to make your stay a pleasureable and enjoyable time. The rooms are well furnished and comfortable.The food is excellent and a varied choice on the menu. We intend to return and hopefully the weather will be as kind as on this visit 11deg C and sunny in November ,

Room Tip: Request a room overlooking the sea

I stayed at the Grand to set up small conference. The town of Malahide is beautiful, quaint and very friendly. It's walking distance to everything. Train station is close by which takes you to downtown Dublin. A waterview room is great. Hotel has some cozy, comfy places to sit and work on your laptop if you're there for business. Matt's Bar has excellent food and great bartenders. There's a very nice health club next door to the hotel which accommodates guests. Great place and location.

Room Tip: Waterview rooms are great.

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.

Stayed here for a few nights for some client meetings on the business park in Swords and was very pleasantly surprised.
The room (I was upgraded to the exec room) was very nice and a decent size - nice big king size bed
Breakfast each morning was very nice and the gym was functional
Malahide is lovely and very easy indeed to get right into the centre of Dublin on the train (25mins)
