We stayed there three days and our experience was plesant. There was a free parking on site but quite small, so be aware of that, as one night we had to just leave car outside that parking. Hotel is ok, solid condition. Staff is friendly but they seriously should hire more people. In season time with tour buses they had...

I stayed here again recently for 1 night. It is excellent value for money. The hotel is slightly dated and needs a little bit if money spent on it but is spotlessly clean and very comfortable. We ate in the bar and it was nice. I had accidentally booked the wrong night but the hotel were very accommodating and changed...

The hotel is located along a road quite some distance from the city center. There is always a lot of noise from the traffic. The reception wasn't very helpful in terms of giving traffic advice. When asked how to get to the city center early in the morning, the only advice was to take a taxi... The room was OK,...

Booked in for 3 nights and was in a room that was like living in a sauna making it impossible to sleep. Unfortunately the windows were screwed shut and unable to open. When I informed the reception desk I was told they would look at the room and maybe get us a fan - nothing happened - When checking out...

Booked this hotel for a few days away with my wife, the room we got was massive but a bit tired and outdated although we were told that renovations were due to start soon, apart from that the room was very clean, the bed was very big and comfy and no road noise from outside. We never used the bar...

The hotel is ad a nice location. Next to the sea, we had a room with a view on the sea/beach. You have a bus stop in front of the hotel and a train station on 5' walk. Ideal if you want to visit Dublin and/or coast. I recommend a visit to Bray and take the coastal walk. The staff...

This kip is a complete rip off - scruffy, unhepful and unfriendly staff.Needs a revamp. Food poor. Wifi poort nd not secure. Service in restaurant terrible. Rooms in poor repairs - windows need redoing and very noisy. DO NOT stay here.

Stayed here for two days with my nine year old daughter. We dropped off our bags on May 7th during the day and the girl on reception was lovely, we headed off into to town and came back to check in. We didn't even get a hello or told what time breakfast was... we came back down to have dinner...

If you are really planning on spending time in Dublin spend the extra money to stay in Town. This place is about 4 miles out and you will need a bus or train. Don't drive in. There's no parking. Old hotel. Needs updating.
