                    The hotel is in a good location relative to Dunlaoire, Dalkey and Killiney. It has good facilitites, including free internet access and carparking.

                    In-house dining prices were comparatively high. No suitable location to have breakfast as food is delivered to tables in lounge area. Quaint but not very practical.

                    Ease of access, excellent menus and quality of food. Very comfortable room. Security measures very good.

                    The only adverse point relates to the room key cards which have a magnetic strip. There was no advice that they should not be placed near to other similar devices. Ours came into contact with a rail/bus ticket and both the ticket and the card were rendered inoperable.

                    Great view from sea-facing room, very good quality room, but poor reading lights by bed. Secure free parking garage. Hotel has character.

                    Using Booked.net breakfast was shown as an extra, I booked this, maitre d' said you are not on a breakfast package, confusion needing front desk to sort. Breakfast not worth price, ok but nothing special.

                    Loved the location of hotel. Beside a park and the pier. Nice rooms and loved the movies in room. Although, pricey enough...... Liked the layout of hotel and reception and bar.

                    We eat a lot at hotel and found the food in bar has gone slightly downhill. burgers don't seem to be made with proper or much mince. Powder/flour taste off them. Also thai green chick curry was tiny tiny... it's more a potion for a mouse than adult. It's a shame, coz other dishes are lovely and the price of food great.... But, will still eat there, just won't order those dishes!! checkin was a bit slow and asking the reception staff for things was a bit slow as always a que!

                    Location is perfect. Right in the centre of things, near dart, bus and ferry port. Loads of cafe and bars around, but still very quiet.

                    Rooms that are not Seaview are a bit on a small side. Still ok for the price.

                    I needed a stopover so planned to arrive late and leave early. Reception staff bored and disinterested. Door key card didn't work so I had to return to reception to sort that out. Went to the bar and couldn't get served as I didn't have adequate 'credit', so I went to bed and left at 6 the following morning. I won't be back.

                    On arrival they took over 10 minutes to confim my booking. I told reception I wanted to have a drink at the bar before going to bed as there is no mini bar. Door key card didn't work so I had to return to reception to sort that out. Went to the bar and couldn't get served as I didn't have adequate 'credit', so I went to bed and left at 6 the following morning. I won't be back.

                    Closeness to station for the dart into Dublin (20mins) Nice hight street with lots of small shops.

                    I looked at thr details of this hotel in advance and noted that I needed a swim cap to be able to go into the pool, so I took one with me. I was very very annoyed to be told at the pool area that I could not use the pool without flipflops (nothing was mentioned about this on the website.) They do sell them at 17 euros a per, the same kind that you can get in Primark for 1 euro. Breakfast in room was a complete ripoff for 21 euros plus 5 euros tray charge.

                    Good accessibility in terms of public transport - Dart System and leisure in house facilities.

                    Confusing guest entrance to hotel . No signage was evident at front of hotel to direct guests. This does not create a good initial impression. This is meant to be a constructive comment not negative comment.

                    I went for a relaxing weekend and that is what i got! Easy access to the dart, so we were able to travel into Dublin City.

                    Very convenient location for the ferry from UK with easy access to the South side of Dublin.

                    Only bar meals available in the hotel in the evening (or at least that was the case when we stayed there on a Thursday)

                    The staff at the hotel were very helpful, and polite, the rooms were very spacious, I liked this hotel as we found the location was within walking distance as we were visiting family, therefore I would recommend this hotel as this would be the 2nd time we have stayed there and are hoping to go again later in the year
