Lovely hotel, great location, lovely staff

The hotel and staff were lovely. It was in a lovely location and only a short walk to the station so easily accessible to Dublin city centre. The rooms were a really good size but they got very warm even with the heating off and window open.

Quality hotel on 702 bus route from airport

Pros: Large rooms Quality fixtures and fittings Close to US Embassy Nearby ATM On 702 bus route from airport
Cons: Nil
Location: On south side of the city within a few miles of central business district
This is a large full facility hotel a few miles south of city centre has large bedrooms with separate walk in wardrobe/storage area, en-suite, and lounge area. Decent size TV. Comprehensive reception area with storage for baggage if you need to store cases for late departures. We did not eat in the hotel, but has a good bar! Very pleased and ideal for our purposes

Lovely hotel

The hotel was lovely, clean and beds were really comfortable. Only thing was it was quite far away from city Centre, so had to get a lot of taxis or have a really long walk.

Good Trip

Hotel is located in a very pleasant and convenient district a short walk from Docklands where I was attending a conference. The reception were very welcoming and the parking rate which allowed me to stay all day after I checked out was good. The room and bathrrom decor were dated but it was very clean and comfortable.
