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!!!
