“Nice hotel, good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

We have stayed in this hotel a few times for the rugby. It is walking distance to Aviva. This visit, we had a private party. It was fabulous. We had a barbeque in the gardens which was fantastic.Food was great. The bar has a veranda looking down into the gardens.It is surrounded by an array of beautiful colourful flowers. It was heaven sitting in the sun reading the papers sipping cappuccino, surrounded by such beauty. The hotel has quite a few rest areas around reception and on the way to the rooms. They have really nice modern furnishings and provide plenty of chill out space. It is a pleasant short walk to the quaint village of Sandymount and 15 minute walk to the beach. It's a ten minute taxi ride into Dublin City. This hotel is really good value for money. My only gripe has always been that the beds are too small. Everything else is really good.

Hi Ann-Marie,

Thank you for your kind review.

We are delighted you enjoyed your barbeque. Jackie, our gardener, does a great job in having it looking beautiful.

Our beds are 140cm Queens with larger Kings in our executive suites. Unfortunately, given the hotel layout we cannot have larger beds in the other rooms.

We look forward to your next visit.

With kind regards,

John Loughran

Overnight stay. Very close to Aviva stadium and Dart Station for easy access to City and Bray and Greystones. Staff very friendly and efficient. Food excellent and breakfast was beautiful and great variety. Very quiet the night we stayed but we were told it is very lively when events taking place in the Aviva. Would definitely stay again.

Dear Eileen,

Thank for your review.

The hotel is in a very quiet residential area, and does indeed come to life on the four or five occasions during the year when events take place in AVIVA Stadium. We look forward to your next visit.

My partner and I decided to stay at this hotel based on the location and price. It was in the most beautiful area of dublin 15 min walk to Sandy mount beach and the local village.
We had the most perfect room spacious and clean.
The staff were so helpful in fulfilling any help we needed, with out question.
We would definitely stay here again!

Since the previous review on this hotel we have again stayed for a long week-end.
We stayed this time as room only as opposed to Bed and breakfast. The reason - Their breakfasts are too good and 3 of their breakfasts would not do my waist line any favors .
I have found on every visit that the staff are always happy and make you welcome and will assist you in every way they can.This visit was no different.
The hotel is very busy and the grounds and the interior are kept updated and clean.

I had a couple of minor issues on this visit but by talking to the staff at the time they were sorted without problem

I find that no matter how big the hotel is and how good the infrastructure is issues do arise but if you sort it out at the time it's better than moaning about it after leaving.

Would we visit and stay again............ of course we would ...

Would we recommend the hotel.........of course we would

We stayed in the Sandymount Hotel for one night recently. The room rate was very good value, as it included parking. The staff were v friendly. The room was grand, but the bathroom was pretty damp and the ceiling/walls in the bathroom were stained. But I think I would get over this, to stay in such a great location at this rate. However, I would hesitate in booking this hotel again due to the risk of disturbed sleep due to noise from the corridor and other rooms. The night we stayed, I would suspect that a lot of rooms were empty but it was still very noisy during the night. It was a rare night away from small kids for us, so the broken sleep due to noise was not appreciated.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review.

Most bedrooms have been recently upgraded, and the remaining bedrooms and bathrooms are due for refurbishment in the next couple of months.

I apologise that your rare night away from your children was not as it should have been.

We love Dublin and usually stay in the centre but decided to have a change and stay a little way out and travel in on the Dart ,it was an excellent decision.
There was such a warm welcome at reception telling us about the local area. In fact we spent far more time in the local village than we intended to, such good pubs and restaurants and an easy walk back to the hotel.
Our room was lovely, the decor was immaculate, it was clean, modern, light and airy. There was no waiting for the room to be cleaned, every day it had been done while we were at breakfast.
No going back to an unmade bed, much appreciated.
The breakfast was delicious, everything you could want, as much as you wanted, lovely and fresh. Only one very small niggle every morning I waited and waited for a cup of tea at breakfast, the waiter would pour my husband a coffee immediately we entered the room, I would ask for tea then wait, then ask again and wait, and I do like tea with my breakfast not afterwards. This is so minor but it happened on three consecutive mornings and became really irritating. Having said that I'm sure it was just bad luck.
We had a brilliant time and next time we visit Dublin we wouldn't stay anywhere else now.

Got a 2 night stay for just €75 per night...wasn't expecting much but was pleasently surprised!! From check in everything was just great! Reception staff so friendly & couldn't do more to help us!
Matress was the thickest, comfyest matress I have ever in my life slept on! Room was lovely and modern...maybe a little small.
Food in the bar was gorgeous...and again staff in there were so accomodating (letting us order off the evening menu at 12.30pm!!), another evening we got back to the hotel after 10 and were looking for food but service had finished but staff insisted on making up sandwiches etc.
Hotel is located next to Sandymount village...lovely spot for a meal and walk.
Also the hotel is right next to the dart which takes you to Connoly station in just 5mins.
Must say great hotel & staff...will definatley be back!!!

Room Tip: Suites are lovely & great value..would recommend as you could here other room doors closing at n...
