We stayed for one friday night in this hotel. It is a very large hotel. It's about 10 minutes drive from Howth, which is where we ate... a lot of very good seafood restaurants there. It was very busy when we arrived at 7pm, and we couldn't find any parking at the hotel.
The room was large, and the bed was large, king size, and very comfortable. There were a couple of niggles, but we were happy in general.... When you leave the room, the temperature panel seems to default back to 24 degrees C. The lowest we could set it to was 19, which we are not used to and found it uncomfortably hot during the night. Our view from room was of thehotels glass recycling area. No conditioner was provided with the shampoo, and the hairdryer was next to useless at 1500watts. (A good hairdryer is 3000w). The sink had a large crack in it.
The staff were very helpful, I asked for extra pillows and it was no problem, they were delivered to the room.
Wifi is available in and is listed as 'high speed'. It was about 0.8MB down, and 0.4 up... so, very slow even by irish domestic standards. Not good enough for working or, but ok for checking email.
Breakfast is very good, a wide range of fresh fruit, juices, pastries, bread, and hot food in the buffet. Other items like omelette and pancake availalble to order. A decent coffee machine is also available, along with the days papers.
Checkout and checkin were quick and efficient. No complaints there. Staff polite and helpful at all times. In general I would recommend the hotel, but there is room for some improvement.
