Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were considering on splitting our stay here and with some hotel in Dublin, but i decided not to move around and spend all our nights here instead. It worked great for us since it is close to the main street, to SPAR, Teddy’s ice cream and most importantly - to the sea and cliffs. Btw, we arrived early and were expecting to leave our luggage for storage but they kindly gave us a room and we appreciated it much. Their in house restaurant opens at around 6:30 AM where they serve a full Irish Breakfast which we enjoyed very much. We will stay here again next time we find ourselves in Bray.

We had a perfect one-night stay. Had a nice seafront room that overlooked the park and Irish Sea. Our room was very clean and comfortable. We had an excellent dinner in their restaurant with excellent service from Caoimhe. In the evening we had drinks with friends we met their and listened to the band until the bar closed.

Our stay could not have been better in any way. It's right on the beach and a short walk from the train station, so the location is perfect. The hotel is beautiful, the bar is a fun atmosphere and the food was divine. The bed was the most comfortable I've had this whole trip. But the best part is the staff. Every single person we met working there was so kind and helpful and wonderful, I honestly can't say enough. I'd like to give a shout out to Daniel the footman, Tom and Mark the bartenders, and Kev-o. You all really made our stay great, and I would love to be back soon!

satisfied with my stay! The double room on the first floor was nice ~ room looks out onto garbage and no hot water though. Everyone at reception was great! Close to Dart station ~ easy to travel to Dublin or Greystones. Lively atmosphere on Friday night. Could hear music loudly in room until nightclub closes at 2. Overall, good hotel for location and price.

Went here for breakfast with my mam and dad and got the eggs hammock.. eggs were really hard so I asked for them a bit soft. When they came back they were so soft the white was like snot. Not only that the eggs were so raw they literally gave me the toasted bread and ham back I originally had and it was soggy and freezing. I returned them and said I didn't want anything.. when the bill came they tried charging me for them even tho I never ate them. The waitress was so rude I honestly was in complete shock. I'll not be returning! Disgraceful

We stayed in the one bed apartment and it was lovely, very well equipped and clean and comfortable - the only problem was finding our way out and back to the apartment each time we left it. No lift either so had to haul bags up flights of stairs. Overall though, our experience was good, food is excellent

We visited here in August with Family, the staff were friendly, the food was ok. We ordered cocktails which were very disappointing, need to learn how to make a pornstar martini, no passoa in there and no passion fruit, at €11 it’s very pricey with no real proper cocktail taste. The disabled toilets were disgraceful, no toilet paper despite a member of staff having been in prior to us. Hope you improve these issues as this is somewhere we love to visit when in Bray.

Stayed here the day after our wedding in July 22 with a large group of our friends. We were given the front room with a fantastic sea view and they even gave us a card & chocolates ❤️ The bar food was just delicious and we had an area upstairs for drinks also. Our bartender was Simon. He is such a credit to the Martello. He made our night with his impeccable service & fast witted humour. He is such a gem and is the reason I am giving the fifth star! Nightclub is on the property and was great fun. It was a busy Friday night so perfect for a large group. Breakfast the next morning was delicious also. Literally nothing I can think of that wasn’t fabulous about our whole stay!

Friday evening meal on the terrace: All of the staff were so attentive during our dinner. The place was packed and everything was under control. The food was nice but the staff professionalism just made it. Not a hint of the usual "that's not my job" (that has become the normal nowadays), really, it was great!!

I went to martello hotel with my boyfriend, I am a young adult and it was our first night away together, I didn’t know what to expect as the hotel is only 2 stars, but I was blown away to say the least. The breakfast was fantastic!, the location was brilliant, right on the seafront near everything, the room was big, clean and was nicely furnished, the staff were very attentive and the price was great too. We enjoyed a nice drink in the bar and there was great live music on. I highly highly recommend the Martello hotel and I’ll definitely be back.
