“Great location in heart of JLT”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Stayed in the Bonnington for 8 days while on business in Dubai. Our office is 10 minutes away in JLT Freezone so location of Bonnington was ideal.
Staff were superb & very personable. The room was spacious, nice & very clean. The restaurants & bars, namely McGettigans, were great & as they were so good you feel like you don't have to go looking elsewhere for nice food or great atmosphere.
Only negative would be wifi connection in the room isn't that great with quite often no connection at all but as i was on business it was quite nice to not receive mail for sometime
The Bonnington is a little distance from main attractions but there are sufficient taxi's & transport to get you around.
I would certainly recommend & stay here again on business because of the location at JLT

I stayed - twice - in this hotel between 22nd and 26th August. I had work at JLT Free Zone which is a 5 minuets walk from the hotel. Although it is considered far from the city, yet the Metro is only 10 minuets walk or less. Checking in and out is very smooth and the staff are very friendly. Room Service, house-keeping, front desk ..etc are very responsive to customer requirements.
I have special thanks to Mustafa and Kate at front desk for their pleasant and professional attitude .

we stayed here over December 2012. The staff were very accomodating of our early check in without charging us. Airport shuttle was great add-on. A bit far from the major attractions, but close to the metro which was good. Only pain was the concierge calling at 2am to find out if we had returned a pair of scissors which we had already done! We had an interconnecting room as we travelled as a family.

Dear PPillay,

Thank you for your review!

It was nice to see that you had an enjoyable stay with us! Please accept my apologies for the inconvenience caused by the call from the concierge desk - unfortunately, this matter occurred a while back and we do not such call logs for this long, so I was unable to trace the exact origin of the call. I have, however, spoken to the team to ensure that similar incidents do not happen in the future.

We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back to the Bonnington in the not too distant future.

Stayed at the Bonnington Towers for 7 nights in August. Booked the 2 bed apartment. With a family of 2 kids and wife the apartment was perfect and relatively big. Staff were professional and courteous. The hotel is extremely clean and well run.

The only negatives were:
1. WiFi coverage in the apartment was non-existent

Overall very impressed with the quality and standard of accommodation and would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: we stayed on the 33rd floor and the view was amazing

We loved staying at the Bonnington. This was our second stay at the hotel and it was better than the first time. We booked a 1 bedroom apartment, but on arrival we were upgraded to a 2 bedroom apartment with fab views and an ensuite. Thank you Bonnington. Unfortunately our apartment was ready so we were escorted to the spa area to relax and an hour later, we were taken to the apartment. It was really clean and fresh, with a lovely kitchen, bathrooms and spacious living room. The beds were very cosy and comfortable. The service was excellent, our washing machine didn't work and it was replaced in an hour. The staff were friendly and very accommodating. The pool and jacuzzi area was clean and not too crowded in the mornings and evening. They serve nice mocktails near the pool.

There are a couple of supermarkets five minutes’ walk from the hotel, for any essential and a lovely Thai Spa where they offer fantastic Thai messages. http://www.norathaispa.com/. We enjoyed an early morning speed boat cruise from the marina, which is only 15 minute walk from the hotel.

The only thing that was disappointing was wireless was free, but only in the reception and ground floor not in the apartment.

First, the negatives: On arrival we had to wait for our room to be made-up, despite the hotel confirming the room would be ready prior to arrival. When we got to the room the air con wasn't working, so we had to wait around for someone to fix it.The pool area was alright, although the building only gets sun on one side, so there are limited sun loungers in the sun and the pool itself isn't in the sun. We visited the Marina Mall Hotel's pool and it was amazing in comparison to Bonnington's.
The location isn't great. It takes a long time to get to it in a taxi because of the awkward snaking route the roads take, and taxis aren't cheap. There are hotels better situated next to main roads and will therefore cost you less in taxis to get to other places. We tried to walk from the Marina Mall Hotel to the Bonnington as it didn't seem far, but Dubai is like a maze and definitely not pedestrian friendly.

Positives: The room was very nice, great bathroom/shower and the bed was so comfortable. The staff and service were very good, especially in the cafe area in the foyer and the pool area.
The Irish Bar in the hotel is a cool place to watch rugby/sports, and we weren't disturbed at all by noise from it. There is also a rooftop terrace type bar attached to the hotel which was pretty cool. The breakfast buffet has a lot of choice and great fresh fruit, and of course you're always treated exceptionally well.

Dear trund24,

Many thanks for your review! It was good to hear that you liked your room, our McGettigan's Pub, the Leisure Deck, and our breakfast.

The road works in the local area are, unfortunately, outside our control, but once finalised, will enable visitors from all areas of the city to reach us quickly.

While Dubai isn't very pedestrian friendly, the areas around the hotel actually are and it is about a 5 minutes walk to the nearest metro station. The station features a pedestrian bridge, which enables visitors to reach Dubai Marina Mall in approximately 15 minutes.

We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back to the Bonnington in the not too distant future.
