Fab staff - very helpful and accommodating.
We checked in 3 hours before we were due to arrive, and the lovely lady arranged for us to have rooms immediately.
Very comfortable and clean rooms.
Good value breakfasts - plenty of choice and all cooked fresh.
Cleaning staff were very friendly.
The only bad point, is the location.. It's no problem if you have transport, but if you are just on foot - it's quite a walk to and from the luas, however the hotel does run a courtesy shuttle bus from 6am - 9am and again at 6pm - 6.30pm. And if you miss this, a taxi only cost around €8.
Would definitely recommend this hotel, and would stay here again when we have another Dublin break!
the stay was comfortable but it was to far from city center ,airport ect. There was no Hostel shuttle and local bus service was only every hour. So if you was to use texi have some extra Euro it can cost you .
Such reasonable prices for the quality of hotel; a small swimming pool and gym are available to all guests free of charge; pub prices for drinks in the bar, not the normal inflated hotel prices, live music four nights a week. I found the staff to be consistently friendly and helpful, the cleanliness of the public areas and my room was exceptional. The hall/stair carpets on my wing looked like they could do with a refresh but nevertheless were spotless. The food was mass produced but with fresh ingredients and an excellent selection, but don't expect high class cuisine as you might expect in another similar hotel, this was good 'wholesome' food and delicious at that. Because of its distance from Dublin Dity centre I would recommend hiring a car, but it is situated very near a motorway which makes touring an easy option. There is an excellent bus service right outside the hotel so travelling to town easy - I would not want to drive in the city because of the amount of traffic found there. Be aware that there are weddings, birthday parties, conferences etc every week and those guests also mingle with the hotel guests as do the locals who regularly use the bar/ restaurant - hence the good prices. The only downside was the aforementioned motorway which runs along the back of the hotel but the double glazing and extremely heavy curtains made the noise mostly unnoticeable - except if you opened the windows!
Hotel nice and clean, staff ok, had a run in with manager, the cleaners took my own towel and the hotel refused to compensate, they said they will ring the laundry people and call us back, not heard a word, they were not interested in helping as it was "just another towel". Not happy!!!
Our room was clean and staff were all friendly and helpful. The drawback was the distance to Dublin centre although I think this was reflected in the price. Tram stop is about a ten minute walk away and it was difficult to find the hotel at first. Plenty of facilities nearby (a shopping centre, bar, fast food outlets etc).
Drink in the scenery of this storied section of Dublin, home to the Old Jameson Distillery and the Guinness St. James Gate Brewery. Visitors can learn the finer points of whiskey making, or sip a sunset pint in the rooftop bar after a tour of the Guinness Storehouse museum. Feel as small as a Lilliputian before St. Patrick's Cathedral, Ireland's grandest hall and tomb of writer Jonathan Swift.
