Such a beautiful hotel in beautiful surroundings.A drive through the picturesque village of Enniskerry and on through the tree lined avenue to Powerscourt House and Gardens,This hotel is nestled in among the greenery. It has a huge spacious lobby,with a view of the Wicklow mountains at the back.Here you can have afternoon tea or other light meals and drinks,while making the most of the view.Check in was quick and the staff were extremely helpful and polite.All the staff throughout our stay were very friendly without being imposing.
We had booked a one bedroom suite and I had requested one with a balcony.The room (number 621) was amazing! A gorgeous corner room on the 6th floor,with a balcony that went the whole way around.The room was spotlessly clean.It was like a mini apartment with living area with writing desk,dining area,dressing room,2 bathrooms (one with a TV built into the mirror) and a bedroom with a huge bed which was very comfortable.There was also a well stocked (but expensive) mini bar and tea/coffee making facilities.The floor to ceiling windows the whole way around the room,made sure it was bright and airy. The lights,heating and curtains were all controlled by a touch panel and the decor was luxurious.The only issues wit the rooms was the lack of toiletries in the bathrooms and a very short supply of tea/coffee.In a hotel of this standard,it isn`t a lot to ask and would make for a nice touch.Not a huge deal though.
We had dinner in the bar in the evening.The bar is cosy and welcoming,again with friendly staff.The food was reasonably priced and well presented.The drinks however were expensive. There was only one type of cocktail available which came in a small glass and cost 15eur!!! This was the same price as my main course! We had burgers which were well cooked and nicely seasoned,along with delicious fries and salad. A glass of red wine and a beer added another 18eur to the bill.
Breakfast was served in the Sika restaurant.As it was a beautiful day,tables were available outside on the terrace.We opted for this as the scenery is outstanding. Breakfast was a wonderful buffet with a wide range of choice. From the traditional "fry",cereals,fruit and yoghurts to the wide selection of breads,pasteries,cheeses,fish,crepes and waffles (with an amazing chocolate sauce and whipped cream),there was something for all tastes. Other items,such as omelettes,were available to order. Tea,coffee and toast were brought to your table.
The scenery around the hotel is beautiful and there is a children's play park. A short walk up the avenue brings you to Powerscourt house and Gardens.The gardens are beautiful as is the house. There is a nice coffee shop inside and an Avoca Handweavers store.
The hotel has its own gardens however but they were poorly maintained which was disappointing. We decided to take a walk after dinner but had to give up.This was due to overgrown plants and uneven paths which wasn`t helped by the obvious lack of lighting. You can see the lights along the paths but they no longer actually light up. The water fountain at the rear of the hotel isn`t lit at night either. These are small things which would make a huge improvement and the gardens just cry neglect.Such a nice hotel would benefit from having these gardens maintained well. Bicycle hire is free for guests too but we didn't use this.
We used the Spa before leaving.It is impressive but I was also slightly disappointed here too. The pool is amazing but cold.Wet towels were lying about the loungers and there was a jacuzzi pool which wasn`t all that warm either. The ambience is nice though. The Hammam was spacious but needed cleaned as there was used towels all over the floor.Changing rooms were nice and also warm but the showers gels etc were empty. Again,some attention to detail here would be beneficial. The spa was complimentary for guests but the thermal suite wasn`t. It was an extra 25eur to use.We didn`t bother as I think the hotel is expensive enough for an overnight stay.
All in all we had a brilliant stay in gorgeous surroundings and the most comfortable bed ever! :) We would definitely return here as a treat but would like to see a few improvements made in the above areas and maybe a more comprehensive cocktail list.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony ! Or room 621!

On its face, this is a beautiful hotel in a beautiful location. I had been told that until recently this hotel was a Ritz. Now it is part of the Marriott Autography collection - independently owned upscale hotels. On arrival, we were treated by wonderful bellman. Front desk graciously informed me that I would be upgraded due to my Marriott elite status...which we appreciated. However, as a frequent visitor to Ritz hotels, I soon realized that something was off. It looked as if furniture was actually missing from our room. Went into bathroom and there were not typical amenities. The robes and towels were tattered and worn. We went to grab a late lunch but the casual dining pub was not open. No place to sit in lobby area that had 3 sofa areas that were full. We went to sit out side and enjoy the view...only to find 3 wooden picnic tables! No chairs, no outdoor furniture. So, we decided to walk the gardens. Unfortunately, whoever bought the hotel has decided not to spend any money on the former gardens - they are overgrown, full of weeds, and totally neglected...so sad. Walkways through them were covered with moss. Saw other aspects of hotel are not being maintained to what you would expect for the price.
Bottom line, do not expect a Ritz experience in coming here and be cautious as many facility and room aspects seem to be neglected.

From the moment we arrived the entire experience with this hotel was wonderful. The hotel staff were helpful and friendly assisting us with our bags, showing us the hotel, helping with directions, mailing postcards for us, and so much more. The room was amazing. Everything was clean. The bathroom had two sinks, tub, separate shower, and a toilet with a privacy door. We had a two bedroom suite with a separate sitting room. The beds were comfortable with plenty of pillows. There was a lot of space to feel comfortable and not at all crowded. The closet was a small room itself, with a closet full of drawers and more to hang clothes, with enough room to easily change clothes inside the room. The restaurant was great, and I have to say the breakfast was the best I've ever had at a hotel! I would absolutely recommend this hotel!

This is something of a treat. Nestled away on the Powerscourt Estate, this is a truly charming location. The hotel is imposing from the outside, but actually much more appealing from the inside.

We had a 'larger' room - which as actually a superb suite - with hallway, lounge and large sleeping area. The marble bathroom was well appointed, spotless and very stylish. Three huge windows and on the 5th floor, no one overlooking you from any angle. Wonderful to have curtains and nets fully open to admire the amazing scenery.

Great bedding - a reliably good Marriott experience no matter where you seem to go or which 'level' of their Brand you stay at. The only slight surpass was that we didn't seem to get a turndown service, which matters not but seems odd at this level of hotel.

Service was charming and welcoming, and nearly always with a smile.

Breakfast we took 'upstairs' in the lounge area and this offers the gorgeous vista over the treat and towards Sugar Loaf mountain.

Staff will gladly explain the various walking routes around the estate, and they're quite spectacular - you'd be mad to come here and not make something of the local area. Powerscourt house and gardens are on your doorstep and well worth visiting - a few minutes walk along the road. The gardens are apparently ranked No 3 in the world...

The Spa was very good. For once a decent massage and not a 'bit of a rub'. I'm no spa expert, but it worked for me, and my back...

Dinner we did two different ways - one night in the 'pub' int he hotel - good atmosphere but be warned not a lot of places to sit so tricky if you're eating. Arrive early. Bar food was good although nothing particularly special. The Guiness was however perfect, and as ever, seems to be best served in Eire...

Dinner at the Sika restaurant was first class. Five star dining, relaxed yet sumptuous restaurant setting and again gorgeous views. The only small point was that the hotel does need to clean the windows daily - if they wanted a Michelin star, they'd be knocked down for this. It's trivial of course, but why not go that extra mile for perfection, given everything else?

Another tiny point - the splendid vista is slightly tainted by a very drab 'fire assembly point' - I'm sure something could be done to make it look a bit better.

We'd definitely stay again. If this makes sense - it's an unusual but welcome 'mix' of Five Star and relaxing.

Room Tip: The 'larger room' was excellent - a proper suite.
