    Quaint building, with enough space for sizable rooms, a great bar and a proper restaurant. Irish breakfast was excellent. The beds are huge and the shower is wonderful. Very nice quiet area and just a easy ten minute walk to the city centre.

    Drop the eight and just give them 2 Northumberland Road and the name of the hotel. We were just there a couple of weeks ago and it is pretty easy to find. Any cabby should be able to find it.
