I have stayed in this hotel approx ten times, the latest visit being this week and have sampled all rooms from a standard to the Royal Suite.
It is only ten minutes from Dublin airport and they have a very clean and reliable shuttle bus that picks you up from the airport. The hotel is set in some nice grounds(although at the moment there is a lot of building work going on so some not so nice views).
It is a couple of years old but is still in very good condition, the lobby/reception is decorated in a modern style and there is ample space to sit and have a drink and some food, the bar is fairly large and doesn't feel like a typical hotel bar, there is a nice atmosphere in it. The food in the restuarant is excellent and makes for an enjoyable meal.
The rooms are always spotless and well looked after although the standard rooms are fairly compact, there is a well stocked mini bar, I'm not sure the club floor is worth the extra money as I don't feel the club area provides a lot of extras, you can always get a soft drink, tea, coffee etc but most time there is no food there except for breakfast.
The staff are all pleasent but as is common with most Irish hotels today you can't be sure that you are in Ireland as you won't find many Irish staff in the hotel!!
A couple of niggles, car parking is 7 euros a day which I don't feel is justified, the hotel is in the suburbs and there is nothing else around, i would expect to pay a charge for a city centre hotel but not one outside of the city. As there is not much within walking distance from the hotel it would be helpful it they had a small shop area that sold magazines, confectionery etc
It is very handy for the airport, I usually stay here with a car as a base to travel around County Dublin, it may be a touch too far if you want to visit the city every day.
However it is a lovely hotel that always manages to maintain standards at a reasonable price and it certainly beats the other hotels on the airport site hands down.
We will be back!
