We booked this hotel for a night as it was on the sea front and was a good price. We hoped it would be clean for one night stay. After finding parking on the road (which was hard enough) we were so pleasantly surprised at how good the hotel was. Reception staff were really friendly and efficient and there was...

The Martello Hotel is a very nice place if you're planning to travel south of Dublin afterwards. Bray is aan nice costal town, lively but not to busy. The Martello has great view on the bay, rooms are nice, staff is very friendly and the food in the restaurant is excellent!

Stayed there on the 19th March, Angie the receptionist was delightful and very friendly. The room was a little on the small side due to the fact it had a large bed in it which was brilliant lots of room. All the staff were very friendly and the food was fantastic. Could'nt recommend it highly enough.
