                    • Location is excellent and bus services are just across the road from hotel. The accommodation is good.

                      Receptionists not friendly and staff unfriendly. Poor reception on phone and bar/restaurant overpriced.

                    • Lovely location and nice hotel. The housekeeping staff were excellent, the bed was extremely comfortable and food in the restaurant was fabulous.

                      Not great value and dull dark room. S bar very noisy, presentation of meal was poor.

                    • Excellent location and nice atmosphere. Well worth the money we paid and staff very friendly. The room was huge and the food was lovely.

                      Wonderful old hotel beautifully renovated, poor service throughout and bar expensive. Restaurant overpriced.

                    • Fabulous location in the heart of old dun Laoghaire and the station is just minutes away. The atmosphere is relaxed, staff are very friendly and pool, gym and spa are VG and the dining rooms and bars are lively and functional. Food in the restaurant is pretty good and the facility is great.

                      Poor value for money, cheap tea.

                    • Very comfortable, great location, the bus and the train are easily accessed and the locals were friendly, the hotel itself is a most impressive building. The staff is fantastic and the rooms are big enough and clean. Food in the bar is pretty good value for Dublin and the pool is a decent length and very pleasant.

                      Very poor service and small bathroom. A simple breakfast is healthier.

                    • Location is super & and train line to city 5 min walk away. The hotel itself is beautiful and the rooms are furnished in a modern style. We also liked the town, is in a lot of the guide books, staff are welcoming, helpful and friendly, the bed among the best I have ever slept in.

                      Scones very comfortable and busy area, car park was filthy, poorly lit and partly flooded. The tv interenet for 10 euro was not as good as expected and breakfast each morning was no better.

                    • I liked the location and convenient by train to Dublin. Excellent value for money and reasonable price. As well as free parking in the adjoining car park for guests and lovely atmospheric lobby area. Staff very pleasant and courteous, concierge was very helpful.

                      Sea views mediocre, proposed building development in front of hotel and very Poor Service. The bathroom was very dated, then the toilets in the basement were freezing and omelette at lunch time was inedible. Alcohol was expensive.

                    • The gym and swimming pool area has a lovely ambience, i liked the modern decor and feel of light and air in the room.

                      The hotel starts to be a bit worn i have noticed during the years i have been staying there, the staff are friendly and attentive without being intrusive.
