I booked this hotel for a 2 night stay based on essentially reviews and pics and I'm glad I did.
I love old buildings and this Georgian gem is beautiful.
-Lovely reception area and dining room.
- We stayed in room 34 on the second floor and it was stunning: super-high ceilings, large room, huge bed, massive bay window.
-Room came at a decent rate too. Nice decor throughout the hotel.
-Modern and well finished en-suite with hairdryer and decent shower (!)
-Had a tv in the room as well as tea/coffee
-A short walk to Grafton Street and city centre for shopping/bars
A few cons, but it would not stop me returning:
-Towels are not very big but I find this is many hotels/b&bs
-Room was a little cold, perhaps due to size, but radiator was not on nor could I put it on (stayed in December) however my partner preferred it cold, and it being his birthday trip, I let him have it cold
-Room is big, and felt a little echoey. Could perhaps do with more in it eg plant up the corner?
-Decor great in the room, but the curtains were very old fashioned - however I can imagine the price of a pair THAT big!
- Perhaps could offer a warm breakfast too? Toast, cereal and croissants are nice but sometimes you want a fry up! Even a warm sandwich would be better
- No lift - ok for us we were only second floor but for others eg older people could be a problem
- Could hear others returning to their rooms, ie chatter/laughter as rooms set out as a house, with no set back room/away from corridor. It must have been staff in the kitchen in the morning too - a little banging and noise heard.
Seems a long list of cons, but they wouldn't stop me returning for another short stay and most are being pernickety eg towels. For the surroundings, you can put up with a little noise/cold for a night or two!
Worth a look!
