In the Room
I wad happy that I was staying in the new wing because my room was very good. My friend stayed in the old wing and didn't like her room. Room service food was excellent. Reception staff were excellent.
Breakfast took 40 minutes. The waiter was confused and disorganised. We had to ask for everything. There was no airconditioning and my room was very stuffy and hot. I wad afraid to leave the window open because it opened out into the car park and someone could easily climb in. The fan in the bathroom didn't work either.
The staff at the reception is marvellous and always smiling. Great! The rooms are nice with a great view of the centre. The hotel provides a free shuttle bus with a great bus driver!;)
If you want to visit the centre of Dublin, you have to take the train (25 minutes). The bus of the hotel can bring you to the station.
The sounds of the waves crashing on the beach outside.
Fab right out on beach on a sunny day a lovely sit out area at beach
Our room booking had said a bath and shower no bath and was really looking forward to chilling in bath as had no kids with me
beautiful location, situated right on seafront, lovely views from room.Staff very friendly close to golf and watersports, walks, and for just relaxing.
Room compact and decor a little dated, bed uncomfortable, breakfast limited but fine.
The location of the hotel and the friendly and helpful staff were the best things about the hotel
The hotel is in need of updating the room whilst clean was shabby and the plumbing outdated and the lounge was also in need of refurbishment
We are having our wedding here in july ...we had our menu tasting last night and I have to say the food was amazing ..the staff are absolutly brilliant ..it such such a nice relaxing hotel with a great family atmosphere around the place
from the moment i walked in the door the staff were very friendly and made me feel very welcome.
rooms are very comfy but could do with freshening up a little, coat of paint, carpets cleaned etc.
Its a lovely hotel beside beach
Management and staff very helpful and pleasant. They made you feel at home, even when they were under pressure.
Arriving at our designated room (which was non-smoking) to find a terrible stink of cigarette smoke.
The weather was freezing cold and snowing but the friendliness of the staff and warmth and comfort of the hotel soon warmed us up. Beautiful location yet very close to Dublin and the airport. Excellent.
Had a wonderful time and will definitely return to the waterside hotel.
EVERYTHING, first moment of contact to saying goodbye the staff, in particular Karen and Milana were professional, friendly and even funny! Location is right on the beach, literally the most spectacular sunrise you willl ever see (and I watched the sunrise from the himalayas ) it didnt have a patch on the red sun above a stormy irish sea at 7am! Food and Room service excellent, Rooms are big, good control over the heating system in the rooms, views are amazing, clean, quiet, facilities in the hotel room, tea, coffee, constant hot water, towels, hairdryer, you name it for such an amazing price! Seriously I can not recommend staying here enough. I will 100000% return here, ps im from dublin, I didnt want to travel, as I travel with work and I wanted to just unwind somewhere close, I travel a lot with work, thats how impressed I am with this place!
This hotel is a hidden gem, ive previously stayed and have enjoyed it on each occasion.pleasant staff, gorgeous and reasonably priced food and breathtaking views.Definitely staying again.
I liked how the staff are friendly and know how to talk to customers! I really enjoyed the gardens and the location of the hotel especially the sea view frol the executive rooms of Howth island. I would recommend this hotel to everyone who want a luxury stay with a out of Ireland holiday feel to it. Kindest regards Keith.
