We stayed at this hotel early in December on a weekend trip with a local coach tour operator. Our first impression of the exterior worried us however when we entered reception it was warm and cosy with an open fire and was tastefully decorated for Christmas. The rooms were more than adequate for a 3 star hotel, very much on the theme of a travel lodge or travel inn in this country, and they were fully equipped with a TV, Tea/Coffee making facilities and ensuite bathroom. The rooms were clean, well decorated and warm and comfortable. Breakfast was very good as well with cereal/cooked breakfast/toast and preserves on offer as well as tea and coffee. However, our room had very little in the way of a view over the River Liffey! The hotel is a little out of the centre of Dublin, it took us 30 minutes to walk to the main shopping centre but it was a pleasant and flat walk on a good day alongside the River Liffey. If you prefer not to walk the tram station was a couple of minutes walk away and the prices were reasonable but I would recommend you don't return to your hotel during the rush hour as it was almost impossible to board a tram at this time of day from one of the main stops (but it was Christmas!)Overall we were very satisfied with our stay here and we would definately use this hotel again.
