    Location and within easy reach of Dublin and the countryside

    the only moan i would have is that when toilet was flushed it took a long time before you could flush it again.

    The view

    Besides the lack of lifts.....our kettle was dirty and when my partner went to get a tea and coffee and bring the kettle to their attention we were charged for the tea and coffee....the next day at about 11.30am to be told we couldnt get tea or coffee as it was a tricky time between breakfast and lunch .......what a joke is all I could say.....I did withness other guests complaining too ....

    Fabulous

    The Hotel is just in front of the sea, there is a bar, a restaurant inside. The team is great.

    Bathroom not really pretty. I didn't like shampoo and soap... View on a wall from the bedroom

    The Hotel does look a bit dated, it could do with a freshen up , new pain't , wallpaper, and clean windows but other than that the room i had was spotless, and great view of the sea, i had some noisey neighbours and they could do with security checking the floors in the early hours then it would have been stopped, but overall a lovely place to stay very relaxing

    The Hotel surprised me the rooms were very comfortable (value for money), staff were courtious (the only friendly one was the barman). night/ evening was a disappointment no entertainment and the toilets were quire messy.But on an over all view we enjoyed our stay.Regards Ann Cullen

    Near the promenade/sea

    Room was ok and bed comfortable but shower hose was broken and room not very clean. as it is an old building a lot of stairs in place. We asked for a room with no stairs (near lift).

    Very good

    Hotel staff was extremely nice and helpfull.Location of the hotel itself is very good as its right at sea side,easy to find and close enough to local attractions.

    Hotel needs to be renovated and interior could be replaced with new one as its not up to recent standards.

    Good

    The newer rooms are perfect, modern, clean, spacious and warm

    Ask for the newer rooms at the front, the older rooms are a disgrace ( trains running, old mdf wardrobes, net curtains, papered over holes, large cracks in the sealings, musty smelling drawers and stained carpets?

    We arrived extremely late, but were made very welcome and the person in charge had to find a blanket and a sheet (requested when booking, but not in the room), which took him a while as he had to find the keys to the cupboard as well. He kept smiling though. Beds really comfortable and we loved the room. We will definitely come again.

    the seaview, its close to dart so shopping in the city was made easy.

    parking. the hotel carpark was not easy to find if you missed it you had to drive around the block and try again due to a one-way system
