Beautiful hotel

Venue is beautiful and luxurious facilities. Our room was nothing special though. Noisy and bit cold even with air conditioning especially in the bathroom. I guess that's what you get when you pay less than 100e night in such a beautiful place.

Lovely hotel...but no escape from lively Dublin!

Its a busy hotel; the bar, restaurant, lobby etc. Dublin centre is lively (10 mins in a cab, quicker and just as cheap as the bus) and so is this hotel, especially with the wedding season in full tilt! However, calm, peace and comfort are to be found on the other side of your bedroom door....and a lovely bedroom it is aswell!

exploring dublin

Overall very good. Reception staff polite but functional. Restaurant staff excellent. It's the little things that matter hence my only real criticism was lack of a toothbrush and paste on arrival. International clientele arriving from all over would appreciate handy pack as you get on long haul flights. Would I stay again.? Most definitely YES!! Robert Crooks.

Ostentasious with style

Happy guests, pleasant staff, clean room, quite fun more like a replica castle than a genuine one. Handy walk to coast through quite a nice residential area. Several restuarants to choose from along the seafront. We found a great noodle bar. Palm trees along seafront.

Luxus mit plüschigem Burgencharme ! - Schöne Lage!

Ein luxuriöses Hotel mit plüschigem Burgen-Charme und Liebe zum Detail. Frühstück unglaublich toll - reichhaltiges Buffet. Die EUR 12,-- in jedem Fall wert! Tolle, ruhige und wunderschöne Lage. Personal sehr freundlich, elegant und sehr zuvorkommend! Die Zimmer sind hervorragend in Schuss und sehr elegant - nur durch die Fenster zieht es ein wenig! Mit dem BUS 130 in 20 min direkt in die Stadt (Abbey Street) ... wenn man die Abfahrtszeiten errät :) . Das Dubliner Public Traffic System ist herausfordernd !! Wenn man gut zu Fuß ist, empfiehlt es ich hinunter an die Clontarf Road zugehen (7 min) und dort einzusteigen. Die Gegend ist schön! Aber es gibt auch einen Stop in Hotelnähe ... da fährt man dann aber länger. Wir haben uns extrem wohl gefühlt und würden sofort wieder hin!

Pros: Lage, Empfangshalle, Bar
Cons: Zimmer als Mansarde und zu klein
Location: Einige KM vom Zentrum entfernt, aber gute Lage nicht weit von der Strandpromenade
Kurzurlaub , Familienbesuch, gute Lage zum Wohnort von Familienmitgliedern, nicht weit von Zentrum, mit dem Bus gut zu erreichen, nicht weit von Flughafen

Wunderschön - aber doch zu wenig für den Preis!

Das Hotel ist wirklich ein schöner Ort! Sehr imposant, freundliches, zuvorkommendes Personal. Leider haben wir einige kleine "Missgeschicke" erlebt: - Bad nicht sauber geputzt - kein Strom im Zimmer - Essen im Fahrenheit Grill war sehr enttäuschend - in der Knight-Bar wurde die Rechnung 3x falsch ausgestellt Reklamation über all diese Sachen wurden wiederum vorbildlich behandelt!
