1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Hotel in good location BUT, entrance area BAD.
Entrance hall devoid of 'warmth'. You have to PUSH hard thro 2 big doors to get to foyer. With a bad shoulder, I was not happy. No flowers or comfortable sofas, chairs visible. Lift very 'commercial'. Bedroom not 'inviting'. Beds looked like 'kids' beds they way they were made up, casual. The window sill paint all broken, curtain had a 'lump' of material missing, right in the middle of curtain. No light over or on worn, old, used sideboard which held a telephone that was 'dead'. No guide how to work tv. Went to reception to ask for help, manager came up with me. Plugs had been unplugged. Bathroom dirty tiles on wall, extractor fan so loud you used it in the dark! I can send photos. Big burned patch in ironing board. I HAD BOOKED FOR TWO NIGHTS AND LEFT AFTER ONE, losing my money on the second night.

Liked: Room comfort
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Hotel is not that close to Dublin Port of the City
Directions to the hotel were not easy to follow. We rang the hotel and gave a few landmarks as to where we were including a supermarket and filling station, none of which were known to the hotel staff. When we eventually found the hotel, which is actually in Blackrock, the supermarket and filling station was literally just 200 meters away!!! Room was a good size and beds were comfortable. Didn’t hVe breakfast as we had an early Ferry to catch and the hotel was much further away from the port than we were led to believe.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Not as nice as the adverts suggest
Grey and dull from the outside, clearly needs at least a paint job. Staff managed to smile at least. Wasn't overly keen on walking into the room and being greeted by a squished spider on the wall. Other than that, the breakfast was low performance, there wasn't even milk or butter on the tables. Quality of food wasn't great either.
