“Seen better Days sadly..”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013 via mobile

Stayed in the Grand the first time seven years ago.. Was impressed then. Have stayed a few times since.. Stayed weekend in April this year as a treat for my birthday with my partner.. Sadly i left feeling let down and disappointed.. The Grand was much as it was 7 years ago the first time i went but i have had my eyes open to other Hotels in Ireland which offer a better deal for your money.. Malahide i felt has also lost its charm and soul..
Heres hoping things improve for both before it becomes just another seaside village in Ireland which has lost its way..

Dear Guest,
Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback regarding our hotel. I am certainly disappointed that your stay was not all it could have been. Our guest feedback is really important to us as it allows us to constantly review our standards and procedures. We appreciate that you took the time to bring these issues to our attention and will endeavour to rectify them.

It is disappointing that you feel the Grand Hotel has lost its charm and soul. We are currently working on renovating our rooms here at the Grand Hotel. I do hope that we may still have the pleasure of welcoming you back to Malahide in the near future.

Warm regards

Recently organised a nursing reunion and selected this hotel based on it's location for proximity to M50 and to airport but discovered it had so much more to offer....location perfect overlooking scenic bay and marina. Very helpful and courteous staff. Fabulous restaurant location overlooking seafront. Rooms we were in were good standard, clean and spacious. Loads of space around the hotel with big lobby and lots of other smaller meeting areas and bars. We did not even make it to the leisure area but I hear it is also lovely. Lovely walks to Portmarnock. Lovely local pubs and cafes catering for a variety of tastes. Would definitely return here again.

Dear Ruth,

Many thanks for your lovely review. I am delighted that you and your nursing friends had such an enjoyable time at the Grand Hotel. It was a pity you didn't make it to the Leisure Centre, but perhaps on a return visit you can schedule it in. There certainly are lots to do in Malahide and I am glad you enjoyed it. I hope it is not too long before we have the privilege of welcoming you back to Malahide.

Warm Regards

We stayed here the first night of a tour. Great location - close to the town, shops and castle. Beautiful building - inside and out. Great food, friendly staff, amazing leisure center. My only caution would be to stay away from the single rooms. Very small and worn looking. The shower was smaller then ones I have had on cruises. It was fine for a night, but for anything longer it would have been too small. Still great hotel.

I stayed in this lovely hotel before Christmas time and I was quite impressed by decoration with the polar bears in the lobby area. Public areas are beautiful anyway. Furnitures and fittings are wonderful. The room was clean and spacious. Helpful and very friendly staff. Meeting room was nice and well equipped. Great selection of tasty foods for breakfast with a very nice view of the coast. I've tried the "early bird" menu for dinner. It was plenty and delicious. Nice selection of wines. I only regret that I didn't have my bathing suit with me. Highly recommended.

This was the forth time I have stayed at The Grand and each time things just get better.
Great food, great staff, great rooms and great location. Can't wait to get back.
We were there for a family party and everyone in the family left with the idea of coming back.

The fantastic welcome, the General Manager top class and front of house. Good atmosphere, eating is fine. Nice place for conferencing or a break away quiet holiday. The hotel location is grand like the name says. I strongly recommend this hotel,, the village is also fantastic to visit,
