Where do I Start …. Rooms are terrible , walls are paper thin you can hear the conversations in the room beside you…. Staff could do with more customer service training , when trying to make a complaint the manager was no where to be seen , he was serving food at a ball that was on the same weekend we stayed , we were meant to be contacted when he was finished but still waiting . In serious need of an update . I can safely say I won’t be staying here again

There was a very bright fire exit light on all night, if it was a contest began it and the sun, the fire exit light would win. The hot temperature of the room made it impossible to sleep, we opened a windowto let air in, all it let in was road noise. The bed was a double, which is what was advertised but as 90% of hotels give you a king the 4'6" bed was a bit of a shock. The photos speak for themselves. I have a return booking for this Saturday night and the hotel staff have refused to discuss the matter. I left a message on checking out about my disappointment and asked them to call me. I received a "to the point" email telling me to contact hotels.com

As a party of three from three different countries we were able to enjoy a pleasant 3 nights at this hotel. Location is perfect, within the Dublin area for the airport and transportation in to Dublin city. All members of staff are polite and well mannered and very helpful when asked anything. The hotel building at the front, is in need of updating and a little TLC. All areas are clean and Covid is still a priority. Rooms are a reasonable size due to the age of the premises and are comfortable. Looking at the bigger picture The new blocks at the back are very modern and you can see work being carried out to update the facility's. This is my sixth time staying at the hotel and would recommend it to anyone. A final note Our party would like to Thank Aneta who works the bar for her professional attitude to all customers with fantastic humour and politeness. She made our stay really enjoyable. She is a great asset to the White House family. Look forward to seeing her in the near future.

Room very basic without basic prices, paper cups for tea/coffee. No bottled water. Rooms nothing like pics on site eventhough we booked directly so we didn't get a special offer. Cold water for shower. Breakfast not available until 8am so no use for early airport check in. Nice views of sea, could have so much to offer if better facilities. Bar staff not very helpful.

Had a late lunch here today with work colleague. went because of view and handiness. Pleasantly surprised by the food. I live locally and rarely come here. I will visit more after today. we both had chicken dish. It was beautifully cooked. We met 3 different serving staff while there and each one was really friendly and professional. Very reasonble prices too. A very enjoyable meal in a lovely environment served by really pleasant staff. I will be back
