Editorial review:

This luxurious hotel has a rich and elegant period décor dominated by Edwardian velvet and gracious Irish fabrics. The sleeping rooms are smaller than your standard modern hotel but that doesn’t seem to bother most of the guests. The Library Bar has the same elegant yet relaxed feel and if you have the time, you can relax in one of their really comfortable armchairs and enjoy the warmth from the great fireplace.

Individual guest reviews

  • The location was superb, the bus stop was just outside on Georges Street and service was prompt in hotel and very professional. The front of house staff were freindly, beds had clean and the Library bar was nice. The breakfast was good and the receptionist was very pleasant.

    Area was noisy late at night and shower was poor.

  • Location is very good and a great place to enjoy a last drink before you hit the hay for the night. Staff seem friendly and loved the towel animals the maids left on our beds each day like you go on a cruise. All facilities are updated and clean.

    Poor cc hotel for price charged and room very small. Library bar is quite crowded in the end of the week.

  • Price and location excellent, the bar on the first floor is a great spot and not to be missed as a first stop. The hotel is very clean, all in all the best way to sum up is 50/50 and management and staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are adequate and good choice for a longer weekend trip.

    Unpleasant stay and the street noise was loud. The water in the bathroom was way too hot, made uncomfortable to have a shower and the breakfast was less than mediocre.
