Beautiful hotel very near UCD.

Posted Nov 16, 2014
Pros: Near Bus lines, Near UCD, Short walk to DART, nice, clean room. Friendly hotel staff
Cons: Hard to walk on the stone path in front of the hotel with luggage. I realize that it is not owned by the hotel, but it does make it hard to get there.
Location: Bus and DART can get you anywhere you want to go.
This was a nice play to stay and visit our daughter as she spent a semester abroad at UCD.

Not great for a family

Posted Nov 3, 2014
Booked a room for a family - standard room with 2 queen size beds. Room a bit shabby, torn net curtain, shower too cold. Even though there were 4 of us staying we only got 2 of each thing in the room, 2 bath towels, 2 cups etc. breakfast was ridiculously expensive so we did not have it. Main area of hotel is nice but there is nothing for children and there is no pool. Overall, disappointing but adequate.

Very cosy hotel with very friendly staff

Posted Oct 27, 2014
Pros: The ground floor lounge and conservatory is excellent
Cons: It would be great to have a pool with sauna and steam.
Location: I had a car so the location was excellent
I love the well maintained grounds. There is ample convenient parking and the public areas are great.

Wonderful hotel outside all the hustle of downtown

Posted Oct 21, 2014
Pros: The comfort and amenities.
Cons: Not really a hotel issue, but you really need a rental car to stay here.
Location: Nice restaurants and the beach is a few blocks away.
I can not say enough about how nice our stay at this hotel. It is beautifully designed and extremely clean. The room and bed is very comfortable and added to our restful stay in Ireland.

Poor Plumbing !

Posted Sep 25, 2014
Woke at 7am for a days business to find no hot water in room !, explained at desk when checking out they said there was an issue that had been resolved with a number of rooms, but at 8.30 this was no good to me before a days work. No offer of compensation.

Just what we needed

Posted Aug 26, 2014
Pros: Grounds, size of room and facilities in the room.
Cons: Reception staff and restaurant availability for guests.
Location: Close to Stena Line Ferry terminal - 5 minutes drive.
Room was ready when we arrived which was an hour before normal check-in. Had to change rooms as the suite given was quite small and not ideal for 2 adults and a child so were moved at no extra costs to a very large room which had a separate sitting area. Good location, plenty of parking and the grounds were fabulous but there were a lot of different events and parties going on so very busy. Our only criticism was that the Italian restaurant was full on the night be stayed. This was relayed to us quite abruptly by the reception when we checked in and upon visiting directly with the restaurant, the staff there managed to squeeze us in at 6.30pm. Now I use the word 'squeeze' loosely as we arrived to an empty restaurant and at 8pm when we left there was still only about 6 tables being used out of the 30 available. It was as if they did not want the business. Having said that the service and food was excellent although quite pricey but then everything in the hotel other than the rooms was expensive. If you get the option, book a room at the end of a corridor otherwise you end up with the usual 'loud running child' sound at 7am !!!!!

Fantastic service

Posted Aug 26, 2014 on Hotels.com
I was visiting family in Blackrock, and this hotel is only ten minutes away so it was always going to be convenient. The bonus was that the hotel is superb with beautiful grounds. All of the staff, without exception were incredibly helpful and friendly. Will definitely stay again.
