Stayed at the hotel in the summer, and when they say 5 star they mean 5 star. This hotel is purpose built. The staff, the rooms, and the hotel in general is top class, I cant fault it.
We arrived in may and availed of the valet parking, on entering the Hotel we were met by a staff member at the entrance who was a chatty Dub guy (which was a nice touch nice to see a local on the door) and very pleasant and really gave a feel good factor right from the off.
The staff inside are definitely handpicked, they are multinational, well dressed, quietly spoken, courteous and helpful. If you are wandering around reception or the bar and appear confused a staff member usually appears to check if you are ok, all the staff are almost too nice in fact :)
The rooms are fantastic with air-con hdtv, minibar etc.You get a king size double bed and a large bathroom with a big shower and separate bathtub. All the decor (like the hotel in general) is contemporary and slick.
The leisure center is fantastic as well. We didn't get to the rooftop bar, its supposed to be great. We didn't eat there as we had a booking somewhere else but the menu looked tempting.
On leaving our car was brought up, and our bags brought out and put into the car, wer were given 2 bottles of water and a box of chocolates by the porter.
In conclusion, if you want to bring a loved one for a surpise break, or a stopover before a honeymoon (its not cheap though but worth it) and If you want to feel like you are in a Bond movie then I suggest you stay at this hotel.
