            T stay shut, old charming Victorian building and the water in the bathroom was barely luke warm. The sheets were also dirty and breakfast was poor.

            One, a particularly virulent antsemitic site was unavailable to residents and bathroom was dirty.

          • Good location and staff, very enjoyable stay. Great value and service, very comfy bed. Very nice bar, loved the breakfast.

            Worst hotel ever, some rooms can overlook main streets can be noisy.

          • Fantastic location just off o'connell street and greta value for money, the hotel is cosy. Staff are very friendly.

            Breakfast room not for the fainthearted fussy diner.
