My husband and I stayed here on a SuperValu break at the beginning of July. We stayed for two nights B&B. Having the option of a break here was great as we wouldn’t have necessarily heard of the hotel otherwise. The location of the hotel is a real selling point – close to town, yet in a quiet and pretty residential area with Sandymount Village down the road and a very short car trip to Sandymount Strand. The free parking is a big bonus in the city and took the stress out of parking charges etc. The area is also well serviced with public transport, the Sandymount Dart Station just a short walk.
As described by previous reviewers, the hotel is a mish mash of old and new, but we loved that about it! The Reception area is modern and fresh and there a lovely little rooms off this area where you can just sit down and chill out. Our bedroom was fresh, clean and of a good size. I agree that the bathroom is dated, but it wasn’t a deal breaker as it was clean. Bed was comfortable and we both slept well. We ate in the bar on our first evening – personally I found the food nice. The BLT was very tasty and well presented. However, with the exception of one waitress we did find the service to be a bit poor. On the second evening (having just a coffee) we chose to leave the bar and head to one of the rooms off reception as we found the staff to be a bit frantic. Breakfast was very tasty both mornings and staff very helpful. Reception Staff were very pleasant on each occasion we dealt with them – a real gem for the hotel.
All in all, we very much enjoyed our stay here and would most definitely return on another trip to Dublin!
