Great location and a very good service! Stayed 3 nights with my wife, walked down the beach every morning, amazing view! Nice breakfast and friendly staff. Easy to get to the Dublin city by bus or train from a close village Malahide

I spent 3 nights in this hotel very well located, just in front of the sea.
Quiet hotel with large rooms, each having a water boiler for tea and/or coffee.
Excellent breakfast
Very good and friendly service.

Stayed in this hotel 22nd-24th nov had a sea view room which was clean but slightly dated! Hotel bar was good atmosphere and food was nice although a small menu.
Was woken on both nights from around 2am til after 4am with people leaving the nightclub attached - shouting, screaming, waiting on taxis. On the second night no sleep was had at all and ended up checking out @ 5am and drove back to belfast, the walls are paper thin and next door was having a "good time" and our wardrobe and bed was moving with their banging and carry on!!
Definately not a hotel for a quiet wkend break.
Whoever dealt with us on checking out informed us he will pass our complaints onto his manager when he came in - any other hotel I've stayed in a duty manager is there 24/7

Room Tip: Don't pick a seaview room at the weekends while nightclub is open

stayed at the hotel on the weekend of the public holiday - very relaxing - helpful and obliging staff made our stay very welcoming - would recommend for the scenery , bar , and good value - rooms were well serviced and were clean and well equipped - the beach is fantastic and well worth a long walk

Room Tip: request a new room - although view better with the older rooms

Stayed here for a short break the hotel was great and the staff were helpful. Although parts of the hotel looked tired, we stayed in the newer end of the hotel and found it clean and we'll presented. The surrounding areas were both picturesque and easily accessible , overall we would throughly recommend a stay
