“Return visit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014

Stayed here for a night's break in the city and was very impressed! Rooms are great and very comfortable. Ultra relaxing bar and stayed there for most of our night where we were looked after by Kim and Sonia. Two of the friendliest staff around! Definitely coming back

Stayed three nights as a couple April 2014. This hotel recently changed ownership. We had a nice refurbished room which ticked all the boxes for us. Design practical and comfortable. Tea making facility and coffee machine. Proper ironing board and iron. Good sized bathroom with excellent shower and properly equipped. The food in the restaurant was very good, if a bit limited in choice. However, we were told that the changes in the restaurant are not yet all in place. We definitely will stay here again.

This is the only hotel I would consider in Dublin, have stayed here on loads of occasions. The staff, Shane, Rob, Kim and Anne are fantastic. It's actually called The Spencer now and is being refitted, am looking forward to coming back when the work is all finished.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Spencer hotel last weekend for 2 nights. The location is great, really handy for town (few minutes walk and right beside the luas) and the hotel was nice. Decor-wise the rooms aren't overly impressive for a 4 star but they are nice, we had a very comfy bed, a balcony and a decent bathroom with a deep bath and you could see that they had put in extra touches such as a coffee machine in the room or the IPOD docking station to enhance your experience which was nice. Sometimes it's the small things that make a difference. I didn't get a chance to check out the Spa facilities and I was on a room only basis so cannot comment on the food either.

What I would like to say is that the staff were excellent. I had the pleasure of dealing with Fiona on reception several times with requests and queries and she couldn't have been more friendly or helpful! I'm not sure if all of the staff are as courteous as her but if they are then the Spencer hotel is doing their job right - customer service is something that is often sorely missed in hotels of this rating and it was good to see, through Fiona's service, that it still exists in the Spencer hotel.

I hope you find this review helpful

Hotel is now called the spencer. Our room was excellent, bed was comfy. There was a lovely coffee machine in the bedroom and kettle with tea bags etc. loads of toiletries in the bathroom. We gad breakfast in the hotel which had a great pancake making machine, as well as all the usual delights! We also used the bar, the service was fantastic. I would definitely recommend. Good value!

Stayed for a week (business-related) and would thoroughly recommend this hotel. Previously called the Clarion Hotel, the Spencer is right on the quayside, and adjoins a pedestrianised walkway with plenty of cafes, restaurants, bars, M&S food, ATM cash machine, etc. providing lots of choices for lunch and dinner and all amenities you could need. Hotel itself is lovely. Great pool and gym, friendly staff, comfortable rooms with free wifi, complimentary water, tea, coffee, nespresso machine. Enjoyed the stay and wouldn't hesitate to book this place again when I'm next in Dublin.
