Beautiful hotel. Just perfect

Pros: The welcome and comfort.
Cons: Training of breakfast staff.
Location: Great for Dublin.
Beautiful hotel On the Outskirts of Dublin. Great comfort and service. Breakfast staff need a little more training about clearing plates away as eating off a cluttered table was awkward. Odd areas need dusting like the blinds in the breakfast room and the stair spindles and skirting boards. Other than that stunning hotel with beautiful rooms and facilities.

Comfortable and very cosy for Christmas

We stayed on a Christmas Eve and the hotel was really beautifully decorated. Breakfast was very busy, and we had to wait for a while in the lounge bar, but had fizz whilst we waited. The room was comfortable and modern, but nothing particularly exciting. The toiletries were strongly perfumed with lemongrass, so make sure to bring your own if that's not your taste.
