I stayed in the Tavistock house for a long weekend -* Thur to sunday. I had lived in Ranelagh for a number of years so I was really looking forward to staying in the area. My first impression was not a good one - I called to the door to enquire about where we could park and I was handed a key for a pad-lock and told where the car park was. The space for parking cars was very limited and if my boyfriend was not with me I would have found it difficult to open the gate to the car park. We were shown directly to our room - on the bottom floor, it looked like an bedsit from the 70's .. it was small, and badly in need of refurbishment. The shower was so small that it was difficult to turn in it. The next morning I asked to be moved to a different room and the lady was very plesant. We were moved to a much bigger room upstairs - very airy, lovely shower!
I dont think its work 70euro per person, but the location is great. if you are planning a stay, I recommend that you ask for an upstairs room.
Oh yes, on departure, I had to move a car belonging to another resident before we could move our car out of the car park!
Breakfast was only OK!
