        Bar area was spacious & comfortable...food was excellent. Excellent location for the rds

        Check out could have been more efficent...our rate had to be checked several times before we could check out an we were rushing to sit an exam! Rooms very warm at night an windows (on 5th floor) didnt open very wide

      • Older travelers
        9.2

        Impressive and interesting building from the outside. Once inside the comparatively small entrance door, the stairs down to the lower ground floor opened up a whole new concept.

        The absence of a view from our bedroom window but I understand with the layout of the building, it is not possible for all rooms to have a view.

      • Single
        6.6

        The only thing I liked was its proximity to the rds where I was attending an event.

        Yes they only provide room servicce for breakfast and not at any other time of the day which I though was strange. I wanted to order room service at 7pm but it was not available. First hotel where I have experienced this.

      • Single
        7.8

        I used the hotel as I was doing exams in RDS. Perfect for my needs... quiet .. allowing time for study without interuptions... good value. The only extra I would have liked was room service but as hotel is in that price bracket I can totally understand why it is not provided.

      • Single
        7.4

        my card was swiped when i checked in for £180 for authorisation purposes but when i checked out on the sunday and paid the bill for £101 the authorisation wasn;t cancelled for the £180 and i incurred bank charges as i went overdrawn. my stay because of this cost me another £55 which i am not very pleased about

      • Group of friends
        6.6

        Good location and grounds, easy reach to Dublin City via bus.

      • Group of friends
        9.2

        Great location, excellent value for money. Did not eat in hotel but food seen and menu looked good. Enjoyed stay very much.Would recommend and will use again

      • Older travelers
        9.2

        The bar and dining area were excellent as was the full Irish breakfast

        the charge for overnight car parking and in my case disabled parking

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        Staff friendly, room perfect quiet location food excellent

      • Older travelers
        8.8

        It felt right for a hotel and the staff were very pleasent and helpfull in the main.

        The car park payments were a little messy and charges not as clear as i would have expected.

      • Single
        10.0

        This is a great hotel - Food was excellent - room clean and comfortable - free WiFi

      • Family with children
        8.2

        We stayed in a family rm with our 3 children (1, 5 and 7) there was plenty of space for everyone Very reasonably priced, staff were very friendly and helpful. City bus was only 2 mins away, all round a great place to stay.

      • Couple
        6.6

        We enjoyed the garden and the nice fluffy bedding. Nice and quiet room. Good value for money. Peaceful stay.

        We had to ask almost every day for new towels as the cleaning staff took them away and did not put any back. Furthermore, the reception staff could have been a little bit more helpful with transport and general information. We regret that the only computer with Internet access is quite expensive, while the hotel has free Wi-fi access. We thought the TV was a bit outdated for a three-star hotel (no flat screen, no foreign channels).

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        Full-time, free broad band access. Neighbourhood for walking.

        The buffet breakfast arrangements and food selection. By the time a tray was assembled, queued, inspected and paid at cashier, the food was cold. No refills for hot drinks.

      • Older travelers
        9.6

        bus transfer to 02 and car parking facilities good value

        found breakfast very expensive
