Reviewed 10 April 2014 via mobile

I stay in the Sandymount hotel most weeks and I couldn't recommend it highly enough. It is the perfect blend of Price and Quality with the added bonus of super friendly staff who go out of their way to ensure that your stay is a really positive experience.

Hotel with some interesting character. Very comfortable, clean, good size room and comfortable bed. Full marks to the reception desk for taking the time at a busy period to talk us by telephone through the access to the hotel, and staff seemed generally very attentive and committed. Late dinner in bar, good choice. Good breakfast in pleasant restaurant.

First thing i noticed when i entered the hotel was a welcoming open fire in the reception area !I recently stayed at the Sandymount hotel for two nights in 227 a family room, the room was bright airy and very spacious the beds were very comfortable excellent facilities ironing board hair dryer,tea and coffee making facilities,large tv and wifi that the 4 of us could log in, the room was spotlessly clean. The breakfast was superb plenty of options and everything cooked lovely not burnt like some places. The staff were extremely attentive and even drove us in the shuttle bus to the show venu Bord Gais which for me on a crutch was brilliant. Overall i will be back any chance i get i would like to say a big thankyou to all the staff especially siobhan at reception for making our stay so comfortable and relaxing !! Thankyou all again see you soon

Room Tip: Going on our room if they are all similar i cant see a problem anywhere in the hotel

Pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Stayed for one night, at an excellent price in a huge room, one of the largest I have stayed in too date. Free parking and wifi were also an extra bonus.
Rooms clean and well heated - and although we did not eat in the hotel, the dining areas looked well presented with a modern decor.
Very close to the Aviva - excellent location which will be considered again in the future.
Only negative is that the room phone did not work - however this was no major issue.

Will definitely visit in the future, so long as standards remain.

Went on a night out in Dublin for a friends birthday. Rooms were lovely, clean and very spacious. Food was great in the bar. The hotel let us check in early as we travelled at 9am and check in should have been 3pm. 3 people sharing a room was extremely - £75 per night.

Only think I would say is some (and I do mean some) of the hotel staff were a bit moody and unhelpful. But apart from that would definitely stay again!

This hotel is very central for starters and the room was clean and suited my needs. The staff was helpful and friendly but what really stood out for me was the huge amount of parking and the wifi connection both at no extra cost. I have to say I am very impressed with this hotel.

My husband and I booked and stayed at this wonderful hotel and we were delighted with the welcome we receiced, the ambience, the character of the property and friendlieness of the staff. We had been given a gift voucher for a night at 'the dogs' in Harold's Cross and the receptionest even booked us a taxi. Breakfast in the lovely dining was plentiful, with fresh fruit, breads and first class hot buffet. Thank you to everyone at the Sandymount Hotel for making our stay so enjoyable - we'll be back.
