Just returned from our annual 3 day summer break in this hotel and once again it didn't disappoint! You will always get good and bad reviews with any hotel but anyone who finds fault with this hotel would be unbelievably hard to please!!!
Check in not til 3pm (have never got checked in before 3pm) so plan day accordingly! Girls on reception really pleasant and nothing to much bother! Have stayed in various rooms throughout the years but our family room (353) surpassed all expectations this time! Huge big room with 2 comfortable double sized beds and 2 dual aspect floor to ceiling windows with lovely sea views. Room had iron/board, hairdryer/daily replenishment of toiletries and tea coffee making facilities (advisable to buy small carton of milk at nearby shop as very little supplied).
Don't usually avail of meals in hotel but breakfast can't be faulted...selection of fresh fruit/cereals/yogurts/juices/pastries and the hot buffet food is delicious and tasty!
We always avail of a trip to the swimming pool which is spotlessly clean. Towels provided but remember and bring swim hat as they cost €2each!!
Lots of lovely restaurants and bars in village but for any OAP's their is a fab bar/restaurant called 'Oscars' which is on Coast Road heading to Portmarnock. Great sized portion of meals (turkey/ham/stuffing/potatoes/veg etc) for only €5.95 from lunchtime through to early evening! Half portion adult meals also well portioned and only €7.50.
Railway station only minutes walk away and for 2 adults and up to four children return to city only €10. Would recommend Dublin Zoo for young children and for anyone interested in Irish history and families with teenagers a visit to Kilmainham Jail is a good way to pass an afternoon! Also a visit to Malahide castle a lovely way to spend a few hours!
Lastly for those shopaholics like myself, Swords Pavillion only 10min drive away with loads of shops like Zara and H&M and some great eateries too!
All in all great hotel, great location, great food, great for things to do and see and all this for 2 adults and 2 teenagers B&B and only €109 a night....couldn't beat it!!!!!!!!!!!!!
