“If only there was air con!!”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 via mobile

Stayed in 225 last week during hot spell, room itself was lovely but with no air con it was absolutely baking which left it a bit uncomfortable. Staff in restaurant very helpful and attentive with a special mention to Ross who brought my 5 year old daughter over to Buffett table for treats! Overall I would certainly stay again but would be checking the weather to ensure low temperatures.

Dear Chahill,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with the Trip Advisor community. As the weather in Ireland has been fantastic unfortunately it does have its draw backs, as we are not used to this climate, there is not much demand for air conditioning in the rooms. I am delighted to read that your recent stay with us was enjoyable and that you found the staff to be friendly and helpful. Hopefully we will have the chance to welcome you back again soon and exceed your expectations.

With Kindest Regards,

Ciara Lawlor

My couple and I stayed here for a weekend and the hotel staff and atmosphere was excellent! We both had a treatment in the lovely spa and a great meal in the restaurant! Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone! Will be back soon!

It's a modern business hotel and doesn't have a lot of charm. But it's well equipped and clean. Our room faced west and, with no air con, was extremely hot (even at 11pm). The reception staff provided a fan though so that helped. Breakfast service was slow. We were seated and then had to wait 10 mins to be asked if we wanted team or coffee, and for our cooked order to be taken. And that was only because I went and grabbed a waiter. There were plenty of staff on duty but they seemed adept at avoiding eye contact! Quality of breakfast was okay but I'm sure "fresh fruit" doesn't come from tins in syrup as theirs did

Dear Andy

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. We are currently experiencing exceptionally humid weather for Ireland and air con would not be common place in hotel bedrooms. I'm delighted the fan helped. I ave also discussed your comments with our breakfast team, and thank you for bringing these to my attention

i hope you will visit us again

We were here for a business meeting and just hired a room for the morning. As usual we had ordered tea/coffee/biscuits at the start of the meeting and we were provided with plates of the most scrumptious home baked cookies, that simply melted in the mouth. All the attendees commented on the quality. Later, we had lunch in the bar and the bar food menu was excellent. Staff were most attentive and friendly and it was a pleasure doing business here. This hotel seems to have been renovated since we were last there and they've done a good job.

My husband and i stayed at the hotel for our wedding anniversary on the 18th of July. We got an upgrade to the second bridal suite which was not really a suite but a nicer room but it was still lovely. the furniture was white with a little 'distressed look' which was very classy and a nice change from the traditional brown. We had food in the bar which was lovely. The Receptionists were very friendly and efficient. Breakfast was a little slow in getting tea/coffee and toast. The buffet area was very small and had the cereals, juices etc. and you ordered your hot food from a menu. This is a good idea as it stops you from filling up your plate too much! Overall i loved this hotel and would definitely recommend it and go back. It was also nice to not be in the middle of the city and have a nice quiet surrounding.

Room Tip: ask if there is a wedding/large party so that you can get a room away from it.

Hotel and Staff second to none , best place I ever stayed with children, and with the kiddies club I got a little me time too to enjoy my dinner, defiantly going back again , staff very warm and couldn't do enough, leisure centre fantastic , well catered for children, even down to the cot in the changing rooms to allow me dress, can't wait for my next stay, only thing I would say is the lack if signage when trying to find it coming from Dublin, but that would be the only thing
