Beautiful ocean view

Posted 21-Aug-2015
Pros: Location and view
Cons: Hotel will get better as renovation continues
Location: Nothing except beach and golf are in walking distance. A small town is a couple miles away. Airport is a 15 minute drive and Dublin is about 30 min.
Older hotel that was probably pretty nice at one time but was neglected. New owners are trying to put it back together and seem to be doing a good job of it. Large rooms, restaurant and bar on the ground floor. Sand beach is probably two miles long with tide pools in front of hotel.

Pros: Easy to find. Quiet. Great views.
Cons: Food could be served later. Bar could stay open later.

Arrived late. Check in was quick. Room good size + clean. Food good.

Cons: Das ganze Haus ist überholungsbedürftig.
Location: Da wir nur für eine Nacht gebucht hatten können wir alles andere nicht beurteilen.
Dieses Hotel ist einfach schrecklich. Es gibt eine wirklich schlechte Atmosphäre im ganzen Haus. Strandbar trifft es besser. Es ist sehr schmutzig und ungepflegt. Das Personal an der Rezeption und im Restaurant ist unfreundlich und desinteressiert. Es gibt viel Personal in der Bar, aber sie interessieren sich mehr für die Strandbesucher als für die Hotelgäste. Die Zimmer sind sehr heruntergekommen. Die Schließautomatik an den Türen ist bei vielen Türen außer Betrieb. Man bekommt einen Schlüssel für die Tür. Jeder Anfänger bekommt dieses Schloss mit einem Dietrich auf. Wenn man den Fahrstuhl benutzen will, muss man mit seinem Gepäck durch die Bar.

Needs a makeover.

Posted 15-Aug-2015
Pros: Location
Cons: Total renovation
This hotel is in a great location, near the airport and on the water. However, it has been poorly maintained. Carpets are dirty, furniture in rough shape, drapes need cleaning everything is very dated. The bathroom sink did not drain well and hotel staff seemed unconcerned when reported. There was a strong odor of bathroom air freshener on the way to our room. Seating in the dining area was dirty and in need of repair. The patio had food and trash left on it causing birds to come and be a nuisance. The serving staff in the dining room was very friendly and cordial. However the reception person seemed detached and seemed unconcerned with our questions. We were promised an early continental breakfast for an early flight which consisted of a rotten apple and cereal.

Worn out Hotel

Posted 26-Jul-2015
Pros: Nice bay view and beach.
Cons: Just as mentioned.
Location: Beach and bay view.
The room was OK when it comes to cleanliness, but the electronic keycard lock was out of order, so all the door was closing and holding "locked" was a separate key lock with a lever lock style key similar to one you'd use for a pad lock/ garden shed, basically a very simple lock probably anyone could have been open with a rusty bent nail. Thru to this I felt very insecure and unsafe in the room overnight, especially because the fire escape door was just close to the room, and was open most of the time for anyone walking in passing the Hotel.

Rundown hotel, great location.

Posted 19-Jul-2015
This hotel is in a great location right on the beach. The views are wonderful and the nature surrounding you is a great plus. It's very close to the airport ( 8 mins) but it is pretty rundown. It's like it was once a nice place and they just gave up. The front door was so worn that people were having difficulty opening it. The carpets are worn, the bathroom had very dirty grout and signs of prior leaks. The room was ok but dated. Bed was clean which was nice. It looks much nicer on Expedia then in person overall. The staff was polite and helpful the place just needs a remodel. But again, the location is just gorgeous. Almost makes up for it but it's very rundown. 2 star hotel 5 star views and location.

Nice place to stay. If you want quiet and be near a train to spend the day in Dublin, this is the place to stay.

Room with a view

Posted 11-Jul-2015
Pros: Lots of local - great people stop in and I really enjoyed their company. We played a few games of pool, interesting talks, sang some songs great time
Location: Not far from town center, Swords / Pavilion shopping center, less than 25 minutes to airport (complimentary hotel shuttle)
Of the ocean that is! Absolutely beautiful! The room was clean, the bed was very comfortable - was told when I left the beds were all replaced the week before - very nice. Hotel has it's own restaurant(s) and bar, outside seating overlooking the ocean! Friendly, helpful staff.
