Was attending a wedding in a nearby hotel so location was ideal. Lovely to walk out the next morning and enjoy the sea view and a walk on the beach.
Ordered a sandwich in the bar after check-in. Service was very slow. Even when we paid it took about 10 minutes to get our change. Bar was quiet so didn't see any obvious reason for this.
Buffet breakfast on Sunday
Nice sea view, nearby bus stop to Airport and Dublin City Center. I stayed in the new wing: nice huge bed, good shower, and two seats. Not much room, but enough. Liked the pub downstairs, you could easily get a drink. Did not had any sound-problems here, maybe because I was here on a weekday. Staff was helpful. A little bit chaotic when a change occurred, but everything worked out fine.
Breakfast was terrible. On weekdays it should start at 7, but the guests had to pull the cook out of his kitchen at 7.15 when nothing was ready. Poor breakfast quality. Restaurant was still dirty from the evening before. Definitely not worth the price.
i enjoyed the night we had it was a party i was at
i thought my time there was good but the hotel was very basic not much for children to do but it suited my needs at the time
staff friendly, view superb, room comfy, tea and coffee in the room and a table rto sit at. Breakfast very nice .
Door to our room was open on return from an all day excursion - no idea how long it had been left. Toilet was too close to theated towel rail - had to sit sideways! room way too hot in the evening and very cold first morning - water was cold in the shower that morning too! second morning was fine.
The description did not specify that next door to the Hotel there is a Night Club.Despite being accomodated in the farest wing from it we had to listen until 3am in the morning to very loud music and could not sleep. When reception had been contacted around 2am the manager (Arthur) advised that the music would stop at 3 and that the only satisfaction we could get was to discuss room fees
the room was fantastic!
The convenience of public transport into Dublin and being close to the beach
nothing in particular
Position and view. Size of room. helpfulness of staff.
service plus great hotel with good bar. club and restaurant.
