“Would very happily stay again!”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

I took a gamble and read a few reviews and booked online from Australia to stay here for our first 3 nights in Ireland. Close to the airport and close to the city. We arrived, as a young surfing couple from Australia and found the hotel to be as luxurious as it looked and reviewed to be.
We found the staff here to be incredible, always willing to help and to offer you the best service they could, they would offer you the coat of their back I think. The breakfast was the best we found in any hotel in Ireland with the most options and freshly brewed coffee, not dripolator or plunged!! It would have to be one of the best places we stayed in in Ireland. I would not doubt recommending anyone to stay here. My partner and I walked everywhere, (We don't mind the exercise) to the Guinness storehouse, Trinity College, Temple bar, the Jameson Distillery and many more. 10-15min walk from the city and also Hop and stop tickets from the hotel door step. We walked or caught cabs and were happy enough with either of these!

The staff was extremely helpful from suggesting how to see the city by day and night, to recommending excellent neighborhood restaurant, Wallace. It is located an easy walk to downtown. Hop and Stop ticket available at the desk for 2 day.

We arrived VERY late the night of June 18th - technically, it was very early on the 19th (smile). There are 7 of us in our party and we were welcomed by the night manager. He was very friendly and went over all of the details of our stay. In the morning, we went down late for breakfast and thought we may be turned away as it was closing soon. On the contrary, we were seated and had a fantastic meal. The coffee was a bit weak and the next morning, when I asked for a stronger cup, Laura made me a wonderfully strong coffee. Later on, Zuzana, the Team Leader came by to make sure everything was good and asked if we needed anything - she also made me another cup of coffee. Could not have been happier with the quality of food and service at breakfast.

All of us have enjoyed staying here. We have received excellent service from everyone, the breakfast staff is very friendly, the rooms are clean and well sized, the beds are comfortable, and the staff is helpful. A special thanks to Laura and Zuzana in the breakfast room, who went out of their way for us. I would highly recommend this hotel!!

My husband and I booked this hotel due to location ( being near to my family) we were staying the weekend to attend a family celebration. The hotel was exceptional in quality, friendliness, cleanliness, and comfort. I would have no hesitation in recommending the hotel. Staff exceedingly helpful, welcoming and friendly.

We chose to stay at the hotel as it was within easy reach of the ferry port for an early check-in there the following morning. We couldn't have had a warmer welcome or been made to feel more special even though it was a flying visit.

We stayed at the Croke Park for our first night in Ireland. We were very jet-lagged and exhausted. The staff was very friendly and tried to be helpful, but they seemed quite understaffed, as we had to wait quite a while both at the check in desk and for service in the bar. The room was nice and fairly spacious; everything was clean and as expected. Our only issue was the heating, which took so long to adjust that we concluded it was not working at all - only to discover ourselves wildly overheated at about 3am after it apparently kicked in. We did ask at the desk about the heat (after we'd been in the room for about 2 hours) but their only advice was to wait. Otherwise the hotel was quite serviceable, if boring. It's on the edge of town not near much of anything but the stadium. The decor and amenities were unremarkable and the menu options at both dinner and breakfast were adequate but uninteresting.

We stayed in this hotel over the weekend we booked directly with the Hotel and decided on the discover Dublin rate of 129euro this included 2 day pass on the hop on hop off bus, 3pm check out full Irish breakfast a complimentary drink each and free parking. We upgraded to the fourth floor, on this floor you have access to a kitchen/ sitting area with newspapers coffee tea, biscuits juice etc. There is an ice making machine on this floor also.
If you decide on the room only rate you can upgrade when you arrive to the hotel.You can enjoy a contintental brekfast here and help yourself, although we did not have the breakfast here we could see it was very good and we were impressed with it.
We enjoyed breakfast downstairs, it is a self service fare with plenty of everything. Lovely waiting staff with happy friendly faces, nothing is too much trouble.
Overall the Hotel is a great location to see Dublin, the green hop on hop off bus picks you up outside the door.
A taxi from Grafton St area cost us 12 euro.
Would I return, definately yes, I would highly recommend this hotel to family & friends. Keep up the good work and smiley faces.
