From the moment we stepped through the door to start our stay in Dublin to when we finally picked up our luggage to leave, our holiday, centered around the Radisson Blu Royal (and a "special" birthday celebration, to boot) we found that absolutely everything was perfect in every respect: everything was, or was, made right, from the flowers ordered beforehand for the room and the delicious birthday cake from the kitchen - for which a very big thank you - (and the lovely celebration meal in the Brasserie Verres en Vers, afterwards) to Bellinis at the bar before hitting Dublin city.
For dinner, roasted and smoked? garlic heads with breads made a spendid appetizer and the two steaks we had were cooked to perfection; mushrooms in puree (and pickled) made an excellent foil and the cream that accompanied the dish gave an entirely new twist to the idea of "ice-cream". As neither of us could decide on puddings we decided to have all of them: including a marvellously dense and sweet carrot cake and shortbread with ice-cream. (My favourite!)
The wine-list was impressive, judiciously selected and sensibly priced too.
The breakfast buffet was extraordinarily appetizing, ranging from continental pastries to whatever one wanted in the way of a traditional Irish cooked breakfast. To do it full justice, three tummies would have been required. The black-, and white-puddings were excellent. And, of course, everything inbetween. Really, really good.
The room was very comfortable and just right for our stay, combining home-comfort with elegance and style: the chocolates offered every night were a special treat. And, of course, the paper every morning. A slight problem with the shower was dealt with efficiently, expeditiously and with very good grace. (The room had a walk-in shower and large bath.) The quality of amenities cannot be faulted - broadband came in useful, too.
This hotel makes a particular and very evident point of wanting 100% customer satisfaction in every aspect of the services it provides. This is no small promise, or challenge to make, and so it was especially gratifying to find this promise fulfilled everywhere we turned. The friendly doorman, the waitresses (especially) at dinner and breakfast, kitchen and domestic staff, all the way up to senior management all, and without exception exhibited this commitment to service and customer satifaction. Top marks all 'round: I really want to say "thank you" to all concerned for making the perfect holiday.
