Perfect for our 2 night stay, room was spotless, beds were comfortable, central location, loads of choice nearby if you wanted to dine out or go for a few drinks. Phone entry system worked well, would stay again.

Lovely stay very quiet great location Room is small yet perfectly formed with everything you need. It was very quiet it was almost like there was nobody else there. Love the touch of the kettle and hairdryer and iron in bags under the bed 5 minute walk to the beach and lots of places to eat and drink in Bray. Highly recommend Pink Salt The only thing is I couldn’t figure out how the second person could use the app as it was connected to my email. Would recommend

The room itself is quite small but cosy and has everything you might need. The bed is very comfortable too but unfortunately that’s as far as it goes. The noise is horrendous you can hear people talking in the room next to you as well as what they’re watching on the tv. We were on the ground floor and the people above us were stamping across the floor all night so we didn’t get any sleep what so ever. When it did get a bit quieter around 6am we were then listening to people shouting and even vomiting in the room down the hall. At 8:30am we heard more banging as the cleaners arrived. Cackling and banging as the morning went on we eventually got fed up. We did complain the night before to the reception but as the ‘hotel’ was fully booked we couldn’t be moved and all we were offered was a complimentary breakfast, which at the time we appreciated but after having the worst nights stay in a hotel by far we weren’t happy. We were very excited for a quiet night away as we live in an extremely loud area but this was worse. There was no noise from the outside it all came from inside the hotel. I drew the line at hearing someone taking a number 2 above me. I would honestly avoid this place like the plague. I was freezing in the room and tried to turn up the heat but the damp smell that came from it was disgusting. Tried to have a hot shower and the water was lukewarm at best. The view from our room was some over filled bins and a blank wall. I’m sorry to say I won’t be back

We stayed for one night in July 2021. I was hesitant about booking due to there being no staff on site but I am so delighted that I did. Everything was excellent from the efficient check in on the app to the fabulous room. The bed was huge and so comfy, the tv was equipped with everything and the shower was phenomenal! We had a nespresso machine in the room with complementary pods which was a lovely touch! I was delighted that we also had a hairdryer and iron. My app played up slightly but the staff were only a short phonecall away and were so helpful and friendly. I can’t wait to book again, everything was brilliant!

Had to book last minute because my other hotel cancelled on me. This hotel is fully automated and your phone is your room key, totally genius. Loved the concept and the room was excellent. Perfectly clean, modern and odna of a really high standard
