We decided to stay at the Martello on quite short notice having planned to move from the Esplanade Hotel (just down the road) up to Dublin and could not have been happier.
The friendly ladies on reception were fantastically helpful; The room well appointed with two huge comfortable beds, air-conditioning (which was essential in the 30 degree heat) and the best shower ever.
Downstairs the waiting on staff were personable and great fun and the both the dinner and breakfast were GREAT.
If I have one criticism it is only the lack of off street parking (though we found a space less than 12 feet away from the hotel entrance) - but the friendly service more than made up for that.
Next time I visit Bray The Martello will be my only choice to stay at.
