A stylish, historical hotel overlooking the River Liffey in central Dublin. The lobby, bedrooms and bar exude a 1930s feel. I stayed in a standard room which was very comfortable and warm, although somewhat small.
The restaurant is in an entirely different style, more industial, with exposed metal beams and dominated by a large bar counter in the centre. Quite out of keeping with the rest of the hotel. The breakfast buffet was uninspired, but had fresh fruit and nice bread, but cheap looking cereals and yogurts. And the containers of jam and marmalade needed to be filled and cleaned. Despite there being no other diners, the two staff were unattentive. The coffee was poor quality. The hot menu was very limited, I ordered the pancakes with maple syrup and fresh berries. I received two crepes, which were lovely but small, along with a *single* strawberry and a container with about two tablespoons of syrup. The latter had clearly been refilled many times, and never cleaned.More
