From check in to check out an overall excellent experience. On arrival (dog-tired) the front desk manager Catriona parked my car. While waiting for my wife in the reception one morning Catriona also provided me with a delicious and complimentary coffee. There is an air of country calm in this hotel set. Despite being a couple of mlles from Dublin the setting is quite, surrounded by gardens and trees. The attidude of the staff is one of quiet willingness to serve - to help the guest. There is a good choice of food and bevergaes and the coffee dock/bar is a great place to entertain a guest during the day with coffee and scones, lunch, afternoon tea or dinner. I was left impressed and wanted to return there again soon.
We arrived late on a Friday evening for a 2 night stay in November 2014. I had not stayed there before and the hotel was much more spacious and attractive than I was expecting with a spacious lobby area and attentive service from friendly receptionists. The hotel was humming with activity but we were able to get parking in the spacious carpark without difficulty. We assumed as the hotel was full that we would hear lots of late night revellers and early risers but had an undisturbed sleep in what was obviously a very soundproof and comfortable room. the room was a bit too cool but there was no delay in sending a staff member to sort out the temperature and unusually it was not too hot in the middle of the night as hotel rooms frequently are. Did not eat in the hotel - had drinks only in the bar so cannot comment on the food.
We stayed at the apartments in Sandyford for 10. days. We were very impressed with them. Everything we needed was there - comfortable and spacious. We were on the 6th floor and had good views over the surrounding area. The apartments are a 2 min walk from the Luas tram which takes 20 mins to Dublin centre. The area is a mix of office blocks and apartments which is well served with large supermarket and a few smaller shops. The airport bus took an hour and stops at the Microsoft building next door. We would definitely recommend this property for anyone staying near Dublin.
