Arrived before check in time but we're able to put bags into a store room so we could start exploring Dublin. Had trouble with first room we were given as the door would not lock properly so was given another no questions asked. (Complimentary drinks for inconvenience) second room very comfortable and clean, although the bathroom does need upgrading to be anywhere near a 4star.
Staff very friendly on reception and always happy to help the same with staff in the Raglans. The Dubliner bar was very expensive and the bar staff were not helpful or happy but the waiting staff here we're bending over backwards to help you in anyway (so they had the tips)
This hotel is marked as 4star it is not! Should be marked as 3star it's no better than any Premier Inn etc
They are doing on going upgrades so if this continues hopefully it could improve.
Fine place to stay if your just visiting the city to see the sights with the kids but as a couple I'd look for more luxury accommodation.
If you want somewhere good to eat and drink there's a bar "oil can Harry's" just along the road:)
