Stayed here in late November 2013. Im a fan of the Bewleys brand....love the hotel in ballsbridge, its one of my favourite in Dublin. Decided to try the Leopardstown hotel for a change, will admit I was tempted by the handiness of the Luas (tram) line connection. Have to say though I was disappointed as against my previous experiences with Ballsbridge.
The staff were fine, have no particular complaints there. Check in was quick and bar staff etc were nice.
Room was fine, pretty standard but was clean. Would echo complaints of others regarding the heat - it was unbelievable. For a hotel that has implemented the reduced fresh towel policy for environmental reasons they should consider turning down the thermostat by at least 10-15 degrees. Left windows open for entire duration, to my memory there was no in room AC that I could use to cool down the temp. While the head in the bedrooms was bad enough, it was so hot in the lobby area where the elevators are that you could hardly breathe!
Had dinner in the bar and that was lovely. Really enjoyed it and have to say it was one of the nicest steaks I have had in a long time. Am sorry to hear that they now seem to have removed the bar food menu. Was one of the best things going for the hotel to be honest.
Finally, I know its a small thing but it bugged me. In Ballsbridge the standard toiletries are there for you such as a small bar of soap and some shower gel. In Leopardstown you have to buy even the small bar of soap from reception. It smacked of meanness to me......why provide it in one hotel and not another. Made no difference to me, I travel a lot for work so always have all I need packed but it just seemed petty.
Overall, if a handy Luas line connection is a priority for you then stay here. Otherwise just go to the Ballsbridge hotel. If you want to be close to town or to at least have some bars or restaurants around you this is not the hotel for you
