I and my boyfriend were looking for a city break in Dublin and wanted to stay somewhere more unique and more like B&B. But what we found exceeded our all expectations! We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and had very good deal, was worth every penny!
The hotel is really in a great location. First, it was very easy to get a transfer from/to air port (we took aircoach) - the bus stop is about 2-3 minutes walk from the hotel. The distance to the centre is also good as we could walk there, though it took us about 30-40 minutes, but we were not in a hurry anyway :-) Taxi cost us 10-12 euros. It is located near the canal, so nice place for a romantic walk.
From the outside this hotel doesn't look as big as it really is. In the inside it looks nice, cozy and very luxurious but all done tasty (or depends on the taste). Our room had a big bed, which was very comfortable, a sauna (it works, but takes time to heat up) and a clean nice bathroom with bath where you could have a water massage. We had to ask one of the staff to show us how to use the heating control, as there is no air conditioning. However, as we were at the end of October it was ok and the room was nice and warm, but had to open the window for it to cool down for the night, so maybe air conditioner would help with that better. All in all the room had everything in it that a normal room should have. The views from our window were not the greatest (the inner yard, where you could park the car), but we chose the location not for it's views anyway.
All the staff was great and very helpful. We had bed and continental breakfast option, but one of the mornings we asked for warm breakfast and it was no trouble at all (had to pay extra, but we knew that). The food was really good quality and they always asked if we would like tea or coffee with biscuits even when we were in the lounge room, where you could enjoy sitting near fireplace or use PC with free interent. There is free wi-fi in the room as well.
All in all our experience with our city break has been excellent and this hotel had played a big role in it. We will definitely stay there again and already recommended it for our friends.

Being back in Europe for business, I as I often do, take my left behind girlfriend for a weekend trip. This time we went to Dublin as none of us ha been there before.
On the advice from fellow Tripadvisor readers and writers I choose the Roxford Lodge as our place of accommodation.
And it did not disappoint.

Right from the arrival, there was a friendly, family like atmosphere and friendliness.
We came very early and did not expect rooms to be available, which they not were much to regret of the lady in the reception. We off cause did not mind and told her we just walked to the city center as this had been our intentions all the time.
The hotel is in Ballsbridge a 20 minute walk from the central shopping streets around Trinity College. In the afternoon we came back and the lady greeted us when we came back and told us everything was ready now and they had put our back in our room. She showed us the room and shortly after brought us tea and cookies to the room. The room is a bit on the small side especially as they have put in a infrared sauna in the rooms. However, my girlfriend who loves saunas was off casue very happy to discover this so it did not matter to us at all.
In the evening we went out again and when we came back a male person greeted us in the reception and shortly after brought us tea and cookies for the evening.
The bed was nice and the Jacuzzi and sauna did not subtract anything from the experience..
We had the Full Irish breakfast which was good and plentiful and the buffet was overwhelming.
The hotel décor was what my girlfriend, being Chinese of origin, described as how she imagined an English house looked like (not to offend the Irish here).

Checkout and advice for the Sunday travels were accompanied by a nice chat on Asia as the man in the reception was an avid traveller himself so we could shared some experiences.

All in all a lovely place that hit the mark based on very personal and friendly service which was in sharp contrast to our experience the previous day at a restaurant in Copenhagen. Highly recommendable if you do not mind the short distance to the center and especially to couples like us.

Amazing! After a long drive from Galway, we were warmly welcomed and brought up to our magnificent room. Secure parking, a room with a whirlpool tub and sauna! We stayed here the night before returning home to the US and were very sorry we only stayed 1 night. Next time we plan to stay at least 2 nights! Love this place!!

The hotel is easy to find and is 5 minutes walk from the airport bus stop at School House. We were warmly welcomed at reception and shown our amazing room. The room had everything you could want for a weekend away, sauna, jacuzzi, dvd player and a selection of dvd's, tea & coffee, complimentary toiletries, fax machine & printer. The staff were incredibly friendly and went a long way to make your stay enjoyable. It's about a 20 minute walk into the centre of Dublin. I would definately recommend people to stay at this hotel.

We were greeted by a very friendly male member of staff who was very helpful. ( I forgot to get his name before he finished work ) He walked us through the use of Sauna an the in- room entertainment, before supplying us with complementary wine and chocolates. The suite was huge and good value for the money. Our suite had a big Jacuzzi on a separate level to the rest of the room. It also had a small kitchen but it had everything you need. You could seriously live in the suite for months. We are planning a longer return trip to the Roxford Lodge this summer.

I stayed here for 4 nights and absolutely loved it. It is situated away from the noise of central Dublin, in the inner suburb of Ballsbridge, which is quite posh, and very safe. It is a bit of a hike to get into Central Dublin (a good 20 mins or so) if you walk but there is a bus stop at the front gate and the buses are regular. Taxis are also going past all the time.
Roxford Lodge is in a beautiful row of Georgian buildings. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Tea/coffee is a phone call away, beautifully presented. The breakfast was fantastic, a good range of items to choose from and staff very attentive. You can also request a drink to be brought to your room if you don’t feel like walking to one of the many local pubs in the area which looked inviting. My room was not huge but it was perfect for me, being one person. Might be a bit of a squish for two, but I believe not all the rooms are the same size so it might be worth enquiring if this might be an issue. The bathroom was lovely with a great spa in it, and of course there is the much-talked about sauna. I would love to know why they ended up putting these in the rooms, but I have to confess did use it when I felt a bit unwell.
There are little touches with this place which take it up a notch and justify the expense and location. The building is beautiful, and inside my room there was a beautiful stained glass window and also, outside my main window, on the wall, there was a beautiful mural painted, that really only I could see. Roxford has definitely got the quirk factor happening, in a good way.
I paid about $120 AUS per night including breakfast. I would definitely stay here again.

This is a perfectly acceptable little hotel, not too far from the centre of Dublin and close to some spectacularly good restaurants. It was clean, the beds were comfortable, the free wi-fi and car parking were very welcome, the staff were helpful and friendly and the breakfast truly excellent. But the sauna in every room is just silly - and annoying. I did find a good use for it - the perfect place to park your suitcase. But in my very small single room it took up a good third of the space. Would stay there again- but would request a room without absurd gimmicks.
