My wife and I stayed at the hotel last weekend (29th&30th April). while we enjoyed our stay and staff were very friendly there were some aspects that we found a little disappointing having stayed here on numerous occasions over the last ten years. We found parts of the hotel to be in need of some repair. For example our room has no working telephone, there were hairs in the bathroom shower and sink, there were tea stains on the voile curtain, and I noticed areas of paint that were peeling from the wall. Additionally in the bar the table we had during dinner was very badly scuffed and seemed like it was garden furniture, the chairs also were grubby and a little sticky. On check out there was only one receptionist and a hefty queue of guests needing assistance, and the restaurant was closed for dinner. While we understand that there are difficulties due to the current pandemic with staffing and the ability to provide some services, My wife and I were disappointed given that it is a four star hotel. Again, staff were brilliant and very helpful but I feel that the standards of the hotel are not what they were.

As a party of three from three different countries we were able to enjoy a pleasant 3 nights at this hotel. Location is perfect, within the Dublin area for the airport and transportation in to Dublin city. All members of staff are polite and well mannered and very helpful when asked anything. The hotel building at the front, is in need of updating and a little TLC. All areas are clean and Covid is still a priority. Rooms are a reasonable size due to the age of the premises and are comfortable. Looking at the bigger picture The new blocks at the back are very modern and you can see work being carried out to update the facility's. This is my sixth time staying at the hotel and would recommend it to anyone. A final note Our party would like to Thank Aneta who works the bar for her professional attitude to all customers with fantastic humour and politeness. She made our stay really enjoyable. She is a great asset to the White House family. Look forward to seeing her in the near future.

Was out booked to the Hilton, from an IHG staff booking. Was expecting a lot from this brand but well let down. On check, we were asked if we needed a shuttle to the airport. As we needed it for 4am, reception staff member said it would be a taxi as shuttle does not start till 5am. Surely its a simple request when people book to work out if its cheaper to run a full courtesy bus at this time. Moving on to dining, as I had done on previous visits to HI dublin airport and CP dublin airport, I invited my brother and his wife for dinner in the hotel. When they arrived, were first told no outside people allowed in, then told no one in tracksuits allowed in. I questioned "security" and was told I need to discuss with F&B supervisor. This supervisor was shocked by the actions of security and apologised and gave us a table. We then ordered from a lovely assistant (I want to say burca) really helpful and full of chat. We order 2 x mains plus 6 drinks. Drinks arrived 20 minutes after the food. I subsequently ordered "baby back ribs" these were more like pork belly with the amount of fat on them. I mentioned to a server and she said she would discuss with chef. At the end, I again said the meat was sub standard and was told they would discuss with the chef. Our bill was nearly €100 and no came to follow up. I'll be here till 4am so not much more this supposed "quality" brand can mess up as customer service was poor tonight.

Great place to stay in Dublin. Close to best Dublin golf courses and not far from the center. Hotel is very clean, very comfortable and stylish. It is built upon the 12th century's castle. But the most important is the level of hospitality you may enjoy there. All people at the reception and restaurants were very polite and helpful, especially Mrs Marta at the bar. I think, it is the best place to stay in Dublin. All modern hotels are the same and this one is really special.

It takes less than 15 minutes from the hotel to the airport. More convenient, at the airport's No. 16 bus, there is a free shuttle bus provided by the hotel. The hotel environment is good. There is a restaurant inside, and there is a small shop next door. The environment is ok, and it is very convenient to go to the airport.

We booked the Bonnington through booking.com as they had the room configuration we needed for our family visit to Dublin. Upon arrival (very late in the evening) we were greeted by a receptionist who informed us that we had only been allocated double rooms and not the 3 twin rooms we requested. We had actually booked 4 twin rooms so this was also requested! The receptionist informed us, laughing, this was normal and it was a bit like fawlty towers at the hotel. Whilst I am sure this was meant as a joke after a long day travelling it was not funny! Eventually we managed to prove that we had booked 4 rooms and accepted doubles, just so we could get some sleep. The following morning we were informed the room allocation we booked with booking.com was not guaranteed as as a third party booking they did not have to honour our booking. The hotel did change one room to a twin as it simply would not work for the travellers to share a bed. We waited all day to change rooms, so it could be prepared, however the room was covered in dust! 3 of the rooms we were allocated had clearly been updated and were nice and comfortable, however, one room had not been updated and looked and felt very tired. The room did not have a smart tv (the hotel advertise smart tv’s in ALL rooms). The kettle in this room did not work on arrival, which a again after a long day travelling was very disappointing. I do have to say that the beds were the comfiest beds we have ever had in a hotel! On the first evening we ate at the insight restaurant and it was fabulous. The service and food were top rate. We returned to eat later in the week and the experience couldn’t have been more different! The food was not to the same standard and the service was so poor, we waited nearly an hour and a half for our mains. This was actually fine as we had all evening, however, no one was asking if we wanted a drink. Once we finished our main we ordered a pudding, after 20 minutes we asked how long it would be and was informed that the order went to the back of the queue and it could take up to an hour. Obviously we cancelled the order. Such a sham, we wished we hadn’t returned as it left a bitter taste. Whilst we were there we used the pool area which was nice, but be warned you will not be able to swim without a swimming hat which we ended up having g to purchase several for the whole family. If we had known this we would have taken hates with us and saved the expense! Overall, the hotel was ok in a good location, but I would not classify it as a 4 star hotel.

I stayed here the day prior to a flight to the US. Check in was fine and we encountered Leon initially, our room wasn’t ready but he advised it would be around an hour. We had a coffee in the lounge and came back to obtain keys. Our room seemed to be one that had been refurbished and was very nice, however, small things that are a custom to a 4 star standard hotel had been missing: ironing board and a hairdryer. We had dinner in the hotel which was plentiful and tasted great, service however for a hotel of Radisson standard lacked, having to visit the bar to order food as well as drink. Nonetheless Benjamin and Chloe who were on duty where courteous and pleasant and did the best they could. Overall for convenience to T2 its great and no doubt once the refurb is done the hotel will be a true gem around the airport, they just need to beef up on service standard

The sanitation is very good, the room layout is reasonable and neat, far from the city, but the downstairs is the starting point of the tram, it is very convenient to go to the airport, the 747 and 757 are separated by a small block on the south side of the hotel. 7 euros direct to the airport. It seems that green apples are available every day in the corridor. The restaurant bar is good and there is an open-air balcony outside.

I had booked an overnight stay with Holiday Inn Airport in Dublin last spring but they notified me that their hotel would be closed in May on our stopover. They recommended the Carlton Hotel at the airport and wanted to book me a room for 3. The previous reviews were ok so I accepted the offer. Let me say, this was not a clean hotel- the curtains were dirty, the carpet was filthy and it smelled unpleasant. I also had no air conditioning. When I asked about the lack of AC, they told me Holiday Inn didn’t request it. The noise from the airport was significant. The hotel restaurant was passable. Finally, the high note was the transport to and from the airport - on time and pleasant. Shame on Carlton for such an inferior product and shame on Holiday inn for recommending - especially at such a high price.

I had booked a family suite, meaning two rooms with a shared bathroom. Unfortunately the doors and locks for the bathroom did not work, leading to loud and awkward situations in the night. Room was big and had plenty of storage, but all the furniture was not very well maintained: broken hinges on the wardrobes, broken drawers, scratched surfaces and a dirty office chair… it was all usable, but in a bad condition. Not very nice to stay in. The bathroom was clean, but also in need of many minor fixes: the drain was slow, there was no pressure on the shower for the bathtub. We discovered that there was not going to be any housekeeping when we arrived - which was not communicated at booking. A note informed us to telephone reception in order to get beds made and new towels. I asked for this to be done and was assured it would happen during the day - when we came back in the evening, nobody had been and our used towels were still exactly where we had left them. Again, for a short stay, i don’t mind keeping my room tidy myself, but I expect better service from such a high class hotel. The spa is big and the staff are nice - however, everything is a bit dated and there is rust and peeled off paint visible in many places. The advertised jacuzzi wasn’t available, it looked like it had been permanently disabled and turned into a flower display. Overall, it was manageable, but I expected much better from a hotel at this category, and especially for this price. Staff was very friendly, but ultimately unhelpful.

Clearly inspired by 1970’s airport lounges, this hotel is a genuine refreshing change from your usual fare. We were booked in to sister hotel, The Mont, situated across the road however she wasn’t reopened in time for our stay so we were transferred. Good welcome and swift check-in meant we got to our room without delay. Room well equipped with all you needed. Superb Californian King bed…..just blissful. Silly uncomfortable occasional chair proved pointless to sit in. Huge TV! Loved it. Tiny bathroom but still, it did the job. We had access to the Executive Lounge which was pleasant. Breakfast was exceptional! Make sure you book that in. Outstanding gym (at the Mont) which I used with gusto! We recommend The Alex. My only advice would be to change those hideous occasional chairs with a sofa :) All the best people….and thank you.

A beautiful hotel with a fabulous breakfast, gorgeous lobby with a bar to get a drink after a day of exploring. I hate to even add this because it's not the hotels fault its in the heart of temple bar but it is incredibly loud at night. If it is cool enough to close windows at night it would help but it wasn't quite cool enough when we stayed for that. The hotel staff, beautiful architecture, and charm make up for it but it is a factor to consider. Additionally rooms and bathrooms are very small but I don't spend much time in it outside of sleeping anyway when on vacation.

Temple bar hotel is located directly on what we called the temple bar strip. There is a tescos right opposite which shuts at 10pm, and bars and cafes and pubs all within the strip. The location was great as a tourist and the staff were very friendly. The beds and pillows were very comfortable - probably the best I’ve slept in hotels! The room was hot and no AC but it wasn’t a problem as we stayed in May. It does get loud especially in the evenings and on Thursday-Sunday but when you close the windows you can barely hear a noise in the room. We booked directly with the hotel which was around 120euros cheaper than booking through booking.com. We had included breakfast but never used this as we wanted to get out and explore Dublin. There is only 1 lift and you need the key card to operate it. It was slightly frustrating that the key card stopped working around 6 times during our 3 night stay but the front desk replaced these very quickly. Bars and eatery’s in temple bar are expensive as it is tourist centric but if you venture out you’ll find a pint of Guinness in Bowes bar and the best Sauvignon blanc for around 5euros. The best guiness is served in John kavanaghs pub aka the grave diggers and Bowes bar. Check out is at 11 but we thought it was 12pm and the hotel did not charge us extra for this or for the luggage hold. Overall, I’d love to stay at temple bar hotel again and it really was the best location/hotel for us, especially as it was our first time in Dublin!

Very clean, modern hotel with comfortable rooms, short 15 minute walk along O'Connell street to Temple Bar/City Centre areas, good value breakfast available, rooms are very well equipped e.g. USB charging, smart TV, Nespresso coffee in the room and luxury toiletries are a nice touch! Very friendly and helpful staff, free of charge luggage storage is excellent service. Highly recommended for city break in Dublin, located in a quiet street just outside of town but can walk to most attractions and good bus/transport links if you need them. Our stay was excellent, however two minor issues we had were that the air conditioning panel in the room didn't seem to work/adjust the temperature, and also the water pressure in the bathroom was not the best at 'busy' times!

This was my partners and I second time visiting the Gardiner Lodge and we had to back as we LOVED it the first time!! Since we came back again they upgraded us to a lovely room free of charge. The room was an absolute delight it was very neat and tidy. The receptionist and the staff were very kind and helpful. They allowed us to keep our back behind the desk as we did arrive extremely early before check in. The room was very cosy and comfortable. They also do a lovely breakfast with plenty of options ☺️Over all I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND going to this lodge. 10/10 ✅

We were meant to be staying in the Royal Marine Hotel in Dunlaoghaire but one week prior to our stay they informed us that they could only put us up for three nights instead of 7. A lovely lady by the name of Hayley Doyle kindly arranged for the Rochestown Lodge to put us up instead. So glad she did. We had a lovely week. We had a king room for two of us. It was huge, a really lovely room with flat screen TV, en suite bedroom, extensive storage, central heating and a sofa. We had access to a lovely swimming pool, sauna and jacuzzi and gym. There is also a spa which was closed due to Covid. The food was really good and plenty of it. The staff were really helpful and friendly. Couldn't do enough for you. Covid safety was taken very seriously and the hotel was spotless. There is a small shopping centre 5 mins walk and there are 3 to 4 bus stops within walking distance of the hotel. I would fully recommend the Rochedtown Lodge Hotel. The brown Soda Bread at Breakfast was fabulous. I really would stay in this hotel again. 9/10 in my book. Mary and Lyn Clifford.

We stayed recently from 3 nights from 10th May in a deluxe king room. The room was excellent although I did need to request extra hangers for my clothes. Lovely rainfall shower. All staff were very, very friendly & helpful. We ate our evening meal the evening we arrived - had starters & mains - all delicious. The breakfast every morning was delicious - so much choice & all cooked to order. The hotel was about a 10/15 minute walk to the sights. A fabulous find & I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend or stay again.

Overall, the hotel feels very good. It is very convenient to come from the station to the airport. After exiting the airport, go straight down the stairs to the left to reach the bus station. Take the 747 to the hotel. You can buy the ticket for the driver when you get on the bus. The hotel room and breakfast feel good! The croissants for breakfast are big and delicious. Although there are not many varieties, they are basically satisfying. Breakfast is English breakfast, lack of Chinese style. The room has complete facilities, overall style, very user-friendly, praise. It is also very convenient to go out, and you will reach the landmark building after a short walk from the hotel. It is also convenient to walk from Trinity College.

I had the most wonderful stay in Beresford hotel. After coming back to Dublin for a visit ,it was lovely to stay in yhis hotel. The staff were all welcoming from the minute i walked into the hotel. Very friendly and welcoming. One staff member that stood out the most was Daniel. Very friendly and approachable . He recommended a few restaurants that i could attend with my mother in the city,very good reccomendations and also places to site see as it has been over 10 years since i have been back to Ireland. His approachability and knowledge of Dublin made it feel like i have never left. Overall a very wonderf stay and thumbs up to Daniel. I will definitely recommend Beresford hotel to my friends and definitely the bar for a nice selection of drinks .

The hotel is OK but our reception was a night mare. Basically we had booked two rooms 4 months prior to our stay and when we checked in she said 'the system' only had one room showing so we checked in and got our key. Then our friends tried to check in but the receptionist ( the short one) could not find any mention of it on the system. We luckily had a booking confirmation on our phone showing we had paid for two rooms for two nights. So she told us to wait and she would try to find it on 'the system' but she did not instead she dealt with other customers. There were two other people on reception although I think one was a trainee. We then found the booking reference number and tried to give it to her. She was reluctant to help as she was dealing with other customers. I said she could allocate a room to us and then sort it out later but all she said over and over again was 'if she could not find it on the system she could not allocate a room' I said she could allocate it was just that she would not do it. Anyway after a long time she did find it 'on the system' and then she went through the booking in process and allocated keys. Not once did she apologise. I said to her that I thought an apology was the least she could do and here response yet again was 'I cant allocate a room unless it is on the system' An awful woman. Also our room had a close up view of some student flats looking straight into the bed room windows and the breakfast area is too small to cope in busy periods. The other staff were excellent especially those downstairs but I would say avoid this hotel, at any cost.

We have recently stayed again in the Premier Suites Ballsbridge and would highly recommend the same. The suites are modern, spacious and extremely comfortable with well-appointed, fully equipped kitchenette facilities. There is a spacious communal laundry room available on site. The gym is an added bonus and the safety measures implemented are extremely thorough. Laura and the team provide an exceptional service and guests are always made to feel extremely welcome with particular attention paid to the small details. Many thanks again for taking care of us during our stay! Barrie

We stayed for several nights while visiting Dublin/Ireland. The hotel is well located, just a few minutes walk from McConnell Street and about 10-15 minutes from the Liffey. Taxi ride to/from the airport take under 1/2 an hour (about €20). The rooms are of a reasonable size, and clean. There isn’t a huge amount of storage space but this is not unexpected. The breakfast is extensive, but you need to reserve the table in advance the previous day as per the hotel’s instructions - this was a good idea as there was never a queue for the buffet. The restaurant is also very good. We did not drink at that bar but it seemed to be very popular. The staff members were uniformly helpful - I had a small problem with the sink in my bathroom and it was fixed very quickly. Reception staff were helpful with all issues including booking taxis etc - particular thanks to Bruno! For guided bus tours, the bus stop is a 2 minute walk away, literally round the corner from the entrance. Overall a very positive experience.

We stayed here 6 nights. The rooms are good size but don’t expect a view. There is no air conditioning in any of the rooms; however, we didn’t need it in early May. It has several restaurants in walking distance, but it is about a 25 minute walk from the popular Temple Bar area. Taxi rides to most of the areas run about 10-12 Euro. There is a breakfast buffet on the mezzanine level. It is 16 Euro unless it comes with your room. A big shout out to Maria G and Damir. They are both very helpful and go the extra mile to help. There is no concierge, so you have to get all your info plus taxis at the reception desk. There is a Covid testing center about 5 minutes away at the Maldron Hotel on Pearce Hotel. You can book your test online through Rondox before you go to Ireland.

Best points about the hotel are the unbeatable location, comfortable bed, heavenly shower, Morelands Grill for breakfast and dinner, front desk and concierge. Note the Heritage Deluxe rooms in the recently opened wing don’t have city views and the website hasn’t been updated yet to reflect this fact. Queried it with a manager who assured us we were in the right room but did offer to find us one with a view. In the event we were content to stay where we were - its just that when we found we were in an inner cabin it made us think we were in the wrong place. So we had the nice blue carpet but no artwork, no bathrobes/slippers, and initially no tea mugs. Only one USB port in the room next to one side of the bed so if you have two devices bring a plug. No dressing table so my wife used the mirror above the minibar for hair drying. Room servicing was inconsistent (small details) but we understand that all hotels are short of staff at present. However on one day it was disheartening to return from a tiring day trip to find the room was unmade. At €700 a night everything should be just right. Again we do recommend Morelands Grill for dinner. We booked it separately as a stop-gap before eating out elsewhere and are delighted that we did so.

After working in the travel industry for over 5 years and having stayed in many different places around the world, staying at Kilay house was far from pleasant . I was awoken abruptly by a member of staff shouting at me at 12:30am because I had apparently got into the wrong bed. When I realised after his rude shout at me that he wanted to see the printed receipt I had, I kindly showed him and explained 1 he didn’t need to speak to me like that especially as he has just come into the room and woke me up at 12:30AM and that when I checked in I had been told my room number and told “enjoy your stay” nothing about going to any “specific bed”. He demanded I go down stairs right away to complete a “cash payment” of €20 for this error, which again was not on my behalf! As a solo female traveller it was totally unsettling and made me feel very vulnerable within the property. The level of rudeness and total lack of empathy from staff was beyond me. This was in my first night of what was planned to be 3 nights booked and paid for. I decided to leave early hours of that morning and find alternative accommodation while in Dublin. They refused to refund me for the 2 nights I was no longer using and there was not even an apology at the desk for the experience received. I would highly recommend anyone look at this property seriously considers how they spend their money. I can honestly say it is not worth your time and what you feel like you might save up front you will end up pay for in abrupt terrible customer care and poor hygiene in the property. Do not do it to yourself - stay clear.

Very nice new hotel with a great location. The night manager, Nathan was very helpful and kind at the bar when we came home at night. We went there 2 couples and we all enjoyed talking to Nathan who gave us great tips on what to see in and around Dublin.

I’m baffled where the four stars are coming from?? There’s better premier inns. We checked in here Saturday May 14th.. room was on 6th floor. Room very basic. No water. No air-con. Cheap soap. Noisy beside road. Went to the bar/restaurant for a drink and food and was met with have you booked? It was 5:30pm on the day time. We just wanted to have a drink and a sandwich. Loads of empty seats and tables. Unhelpful restaurant manager. He says Just go somewhere else for food but we were in the middle of an industrial estate! No place else to have food. Went to reception to ask for room service and one receptionist contradicted the other, one said ask for a menu and get room service (which was €7 per tray). The other receptionist then said there was no room service. So starving went back up to our room. I decided to go straight back down and order a sandwich or something and I would carry it back up. Same manager in restaurant came up again and asked was I ok? I asked could I order a sandwich and then he declared they had a table. It was so badly run it was like fawlty towers. Vending machines were at the bottom of lifts but the price on the bars/crisps were .95C and then when you had to put your money in it was €1.50. It’s the worst hotel I have been to in years. The staff are rude and unhappy. Check in was blunt. There’s your key. No telling us when breakfast was, no explanation for room room or lifts. Nothing. I paid for breakfast but didn’t bother, hit the road the following morning as I knew it would be awful. The price of the hotel was €231 with parking and breakfast. It was truly awful. I would never stay in a Clayton hotel again.

Stayed here for just one night with my partner. Beautiful,clean,bright & airy. Reception staff very friendly,helpful, efficient & confident in their work. Waiting staff very the very same. The bedroom was spotless, absolutely immaculate!! The evening dinner was scrumptious, seriously good food & fantastic service by a lovely girl. Breakfast was buffet,served between 7am & 10am,we had breakfast at 8.30 & sorry but I was a little disappointed as the food was just 'cool' I like my food hot. It also didn't have the fresh taste about it which led me to think it was there possible over 2 hours. Had a lovely stay in this Fabolous hotel. Other than being slightly disappointed with breakfast I feel the only one big thing that lets this 'classy' hotel down is the cheap toilet paper used in guests ensuites. Seriously needs to be changed to a paper that can be used without having to use half a roll.

I have been a Hilton Honors member since 2009, a Diamond member for the last 5 years and was Gold before that. As such i have over all the years stayed in a significant number of Hilton Brand hotels, my experiences aside from only 2 occasions have been fantastic. Treated more like a friend than a guest. It is all too easy to forget about the true values which transform a good hotel stay into an experience which can easily be described as wonderful. I first visited this hotel when my daughter was 5 or 6 .....she is now 22. So a long time then. My apologies for taking so long to post a review. This is an example of a hotel which embraces the true values of hospitality and leaves no stone unturned to fulfil this. The staff are truly welcoming, endeavouring to go above and beyond to ensure your experience is a good one. Last year ( 2021 ) I spent over 30 nights as their guest, and so far this year i have spent 6 nights here. I meet up with a business colleague who lives in Dublin and aside from work enjoy the excellent food and drink which the hotel serves. The food here is excellent and the lunch and dinner menu offer a selection suitable for all tastes. The rooms are excellent, always clean, and service is both quick and without fuss. The staff truly do everything to ensure that you are comfortable and your stay is enjoyable. I would have no hesitation with recommending this hotel to any prospective boarder. The location is excellent, with the Luas stop mere feet away from the front steps.

I already posted this review on booking.com and google, but think it is important to share it on every platform. 1st day: · we checked in at 2pm, with a nice staff that explained everything. We got a 10 person-room, non-mixed, on the last floor. · when we arrived in the room, we took a shower, and found the bathroom in this condition: hair in the shower, dirty bathroom floors, mold on the ceiling and a clutched sink. Furthermore, one toilet and bathroom for 10 people is very little, and the fact that the toilets are IN the bathroom makes it kind of hard to actually live all-together. · There was also hair in the clean sheets, which were definitely not mine, since I'm bald, and those were long and black. · during the night, a woman entered our room looking for her bed - mind all the 10 beds were already occupied, and there was no other available in the room - and the clothes she had left in the morning. She was Italian and didn't speak English, but hopefully one of us spoke Italian. Apparently the staff had removed her things, while she still had a reservation. A member of the staff (male, in a 10 women-only bedroom, while we were all sleeping in our underwears) to come back with her in our room 5 consecutive times - mind it was 1 in the morning - obviously lost as what to do with this situation, since all of us, including the woman, had a booking in the room. So, 11 people in a 10 people bedroom. We ended up having only 3 hours of sleep, as we had to wake up at 5 the following day. The employee didn't give us any explanation or apologise. She had a key, which really terrorised us, because if she had a key, it means the reception really has no idea of who is in the hostel, and who sleeps where. 2nd day: · We complained at reception about the condition of the room and what happened the night before. The lady was nice and apologised but basically told us to speak to the manager the day after because he wasn't in, without giving us any information about what happened or any solution. . Our cards also decided to stop working randomly (even though we were careful not to put them next to our phones to try and not demagnitised them), so we had to go to reception and ask for them to change them. 3rd day: · We complained to the manager, who told us it wouldn't happen again and said the bathroom would be clean (after 2 days). About the Italian woman situation, the manager explained that she had booked the room for only a week and apparently didn't know her reservation had ended, so everything belonging to her had been taken out of the room. She then asked the receptionist at night for the key, so that she could get her stuff back, and then tried to stay to sleep (?). So anyways, a really weird and disturbing situation, as they let a person enter our room in the middle of the night without checking her records. · The bathroom was cleaned, and the sink uncloged, which was a good point. 4th day · We were glad to finally leave the hotel, and found ou

We stayed here during the first weekend in May This is a lovely clean, hotel with good swimming pool, sauna and steam room which is available for guests use..the bedroom was spacious and clean along with the bathroom. Complimentary toiletries and towels. Most of the rooms have balconies but the balcony doors are locked for safety reasons..shame! The only gripe i have is that despite clearly indicating on my booking that I would like a vegetarian breakfast, this wasn't provided and was asking continuously every morning as it still wasn't provide..how hard is it? Just two veggie sausages each for myself and my husband to go with the rest of our mediocre brekfast. 🙄 However, They did manage to have soya milk. Breakfast choices included: meat sausages,beans, hash brown eggs,brown/white toast. Pastries, cold meats cheeses, yoghurt, fresh fruit, porridge, ceral etc. Fresh coffee, tea with the choice of takeaway cups. Location: near shops at Tallaght square shopping area Lots of eateries, Costa coffee, cafes, good selection of clothes and beauty. Also a large Tesco and department store called Dunnes. Directly nextdoor to the hotel is a Lidl supermarket, Woodies home &garden centre Hotel: pool, spa, bar, restaurant. During the weekends the hotel provides live music. Transportation: Lucas tram stop at Tallaght square 10min walk. Purchase a TFI travel card (equivalent to an London oyster card) for €5.00 and top up as you go. This can be used on all modes of transportation. Dublin town centre; Bustling, lots and lots of shops, the biggest shopping area in have visited. I was hoping to book a stay at one of the Maldron sister hotels in the future, but due to non commitment to provide a simple vegetarian request... I am very doubtful!
