Not impressed

Posted 09-Dec-2014
Reception desk was friendly. Breakfast greeters were friendly, but the servers were not. Room was small, bed was v too firm, TV was from 1980's, radiant heat and no air conditioning. The best part about this hotel is the location. Beautiful views of the water and marina.

Good hotel with very attentive staff.

Posted 23-Nov-2014
Pros: Comfort and . Location
Cons: Just the sound proofing
Location: Good spot close to Malahide
Our room was nice but you could hear the guy next door in 321 snoring, coughing and making his morning coffee. Might need a bit of sound proofing here but otherwise very good.

Playing the waiting game.

Pros: Floral arrangements, bar staff.
Cons: servicing rooms more efficiently ensuring very basic furniture items ( table & chairs ) are available in all rooms.
Location: Location PERFECT lots to do, see, enjoy near by
We arrived at The Grand Hotel around 2.20pm, tired and looking forward to a rest. However, our hopes were soon shattered when checking in, the receptionist related her smiley apology and regret that the room wasn't yet serviced. We left our luggage and were told it would be brought up to our room. Very disappointed with the stark lack of customer service, and inspite of inclement weather conditions, we headed into Malahide village. On our return we expected our luggage to be stowed away in our ready room? However, our current reality was continuum of disappointment, although the room was ready, it neither contained our luggage or any table facilities... So, eventually we were relocated to a satisfactory room and joined up with our luggage by around 6pm!! That has to be the longest check in time in history??

Bedrooms need an updating

Posted 28-Oct-2014
Stayed in a double bedroom on third floor. To access our room we had to pass workmen painting. This area of hotel should have been out of bounds till work was complete. Felt like we were staying in old part of hotel. Bedroom was small in size with ensuite and shower only. Really not best room.

Historic, beautiful and perfect location

I loved this hotel. They couldn't have been nicer or friendlier. The food at The Coast (the hotel restaurant) was fantastic and the Georgian elegance made me feel like I was in a different world.

Staff were courteous and warm.

I had a very good last minute rate for the hotel and was in one of the older rooms. Not a problem at all as the room was very nice and quiet. The gym facility was good and the staff were very helpful.

Sad

Posted 19-Oct-2014
Hotel pretended like I didn't have hotel and it took me 30 minutes to check in after traveling for 6 hours. Other better hotel in the area. If you are a golfer, go to CityWest Conference room hotel. #Beautiful

Very central. Good hotel

Posted 15-Oct-2014
Pros: clean and efficient.
Cons: not much.
Location: perfect location. go and see malahide castle - easily reached on foot. also try out sale e pepe restaurant - it's a must.
We'd a lovely time. Great to have a hotel within walking distance to everything in the beautiful village of Malahide.
