I have just returned from a weekend stay at the grand hotel malahide with my wife for our wedding anniversary at which we satyed in the penthouse suite at the cost of 350 euro for the night b&b only, To be honest i am very dissappointed as the hotel has come highly recommended from friends that have stayed on a number of occasions. From the moment we arrived for check in the staff at the desk were not very pleasant. The room itself was clean although the bathroom was quite dated and toilet seat has faded to cream as apposed to crisp white and clean. I felt the room should of had a minibar so we could make full use of our suite and enjoy the view without having to go to the bar downstairs for a drink i also feel the room should have a small fridge to keep even a bottle of water cool , room could also benefit form air conditioning . After getting unpacked we decided to go downstairs and have a drink at the residence bar, The male member of staff approached the bar to take my order and didnt so much as utter 1 word, he just nodded his head as if to say what do you want! I paid for my drink's and once again he chose not even to speak as he passed me my change . I think its fair to say that this was the one and only drink we had in the hotel. As it is very important to make the right decision regarding somewhere to stay to mark the occasion , I had narrowed it down to 2 hotels 1 of which was the grand and the other was the sleive russel hotel in cavan. I am very dissapointed that i chose the grand as my friends have just stayed in the sleive russel to mark there wedding anniversary and from the moment they arrivedthe staff were very pleasant ,they got a room upgrade, a bottle of wine in the room along with a personally hand written car from the hotel staff congratulating them and also there evening meal was included, The cost for there stay was 350 euro. Its fair to say that i dont think i will be returning
