Recently returned from a four night break in this superb hotel,ideally located on the harbour, taxi rank outside, a few minutes from the bus terminal and the high street shops, a great base for the tourist attractions with a small beach a short walk away.
Our spacious very comfortable room with balcony was very well equipped for a very relaxing stay, a haven to return to, modern yet homely, plenty of wardrobe space, flat screen tv, self coding safe and mini bar. The balcony with table, chairs and lounger, overlooked the Museum with lovely views of the harbour, great to "vegetate" and watch the ships come and go. The bathroom was spacious wiith complimentary robes and slippers, plenty of towels and toiletries, a super shower and large bath. There was a turn down service in the evenings and a great room service menu.
Previous reviews had concerns about the noise from the disco which we did not find an issue. The corridors were very quiet and the room was very tranquil, even sitting on the balcony at night was very relaxing and peaceful.The disco was on at night and Cafe Zephr,Drift and the area outside the hotel was a hive of activity with happy young people. We sat in the P.O.S.H bar which was quiet and relaxing, watching the comings and goings and had very pleasant nights soaking up the super atmosphere and wishfully reliving our youth!
All the staff at this hotel are just out on their own, extremely professional with exceptional attention to detail. Along with their professionalism, they are very warm and welcoming, really friendly making this hotel like home from home. Nothing is a problem for any of them, they are just exceptional. I have never experienced such continuity of care in any other hotel.
Food at the hotel is excellent from breakfast to dinner. We had lunch and dinner in Cafe Zephr along with many beautiful cappucinos and dinner in Sirocco. Excellent food and excellent service.In Sirocco make sure to get a table where you can watch the very professional chefs in action. On our previous visits we always enjoyed super steaks in The Grill, unfortunately we left it to the last night and it was full to capacity with locals, a good indication that the quality is still as good as ever.
The Spa Serene is just fabulous. We wandered down in our robes to this place of peace and tranquility. The pool area and facilities are really high standard but the "piece de resistance" is the heated marble beds in a really tranquil room where Cleopatra would feel at home ...total de-stress. Also super pampering treatments which we availed of.
Cannot wait to go back to this hotel, only an hour from Dublin is a little bit of Heaven!
