Reviewed 20 April 2013 via mobile

From the moment we arrived we were impressed. The hotel is right on the outskirts of the city and there was plenty of amenities about (shops, restaurants, pharmacy, etc) Free parking is always a plus in a dublin hotel and the guy that checked us in was very helpful and friendly. The room was clean and had the type of attractive character you'd expect from a period building like this and had been adequately modernised also.

We had lunch in the bar that day, again very friendly and accommodating staff. The food was ok, nothing special but not bad and really great value... Fed 2 adults and 2 kids for €15!!

That night there was a strange intermittent buzzing noise in the room, we mentioned it in the morning at reception and they went out of their way to apologise and investigate it. The maintenance guy adjusted a radiator thinking that was to blame.

Breakfast was good, the cooked food was very good, choose at the buffet maybe a bit lacking. Again the staff could not have been better and we were only charged for one continental breakfast to cover the two kids.

Friday night in was fairly noisy because of the bar. However, our too was right above the bars patio area. It didn't go on too late though. The buzzing was back again, did my own investigation in the morning and discovered it was some kind of cold room for the bar that was outside one of our windows.

So, really friendly staff, good value and a nice room did enough to overpower a bit of noise to give this hotel a thumbs up. I'd definitely stay there again but I'd know what room not to ask for.

....and I never even mentioned the best shower I've ever used! Such heat and pressure!!!

Fantastic bar with great character and good staff this hotel is very good value. Its in a great location and has very good food and an excellent breakfast. The staff could not be more helpful and in particular the head barman and the waitresses in the breakfast room. Easy access to the city center.

Everything is fine except for banging doors and thin walls. I guess the hotel can't be responsible for guests who act like they didn't come her to sleep and imagine that nobody else did either. The hotel is very good value and ideally located.

Not a bad hotel, woman on reception was very nice and helpful with everything. The hotel room itself was nice with en-suite. Clean and tidy when we arrived. Everything worked as it should do.
My partner and I did not have breakfast there due to bad reviews of breakfast that we had seen but there are plenty of places to go up the road for breakfast. we had to check out by mid day but flights were not till 8pm and the hotel kept our luggage there until we came back later to go to the airport which was great.

Room Tip: I mistakenly booked a twin room instead of double, as hotel wasn't very busy they moved us into...

Admittedly I may be biased. I used to go here a lot as they have a good function room but that was 15 years ago.

This time I was attending a match in lansdowne road. Got a great price on a single room. Clean, pretty modern, nice staff. They have since been very helpful as I lost something in the room.

I didnt eat here. I would happily stay here again and would recommend it to people looking for a pleasant spot to stay near the city centre.
