Overall this hotel was great; exactly what we needed and wanted for our 3 day stay in Dublin. Our room was clean, tidy and modern. All the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Okay, walking into the entrance hall is all fine. Nicely laid out and staff were very helpful. Walking down the corridor to the lifts is odd. There was always a different smell (in a bad way) and I guess that's part of being attached to the pub and breakfast room. The room itself though was great! Exactly what we needed,... More

Honestly, exceeded expectations in every way except...the noise in the room started at 5am - whether it was flushing or hot water noises I'm not sure, but continued mostly until 8. Add to that the sounds of a child crying Upstairs/downstairs/adjoining?? And proximity to the lift & it meant no more sleep after that. That said.... Everything else was great... More

Very happy initially with stay as was upgraded to Deluxe room. Nice reception and staff. Rooms a bit dated but clean. Fan in bathroom did not work. Great breakfast selection but cooked breakfast was poor. Cooked and sight. Scrambled eggs were watery. 4 hotel star should cook eggs to order. Fire Alarm went off at 4:30 am with no explanation.
