                    The staff at the reception were excellent. Very efficient and proffessional but also very friendly and welcoming. The rooms were clean, bed very comfortable, and the room staff friendly. Variety of food available for all tastes. Well cooked and staff very helpful. If you asked for anything there was a prompt response. Location of the hotel made it easy to walk into Dublin town. Would deffinitely recommend this hotel.

                    excellent. Nothing one could dislike.

                    Was given room with brick wall outside window, felt very claustrophobic. Was no problem changing rooms at reception.

                    The room was very clean and well maintained. The bed was the comfiest I have ever slept in! The location of the hotel was good as we were close enough to walk to Temple bar/shops.

                    We were happy with everything about our stay, especially the Airlink bus stopping outside the hotel!

                    The room was very cramped. Had to climb over the bed to get into one side. Had stayed before and we were very pleased with our stay, however we were very disappointed this time and are very unlikely to stay there again.

                    excellent staff and very helpful when finding our way around the city, cleaners were exceptional.very clean and tidy waiting areas and nice to have access to internet for free in the lobby, food was excellent and good value for money compared to surrounding food offerings, would def stay again when in dublin.

                    -double bed in superior room, despite being housed in fixed head board and side tables was still two singles pushed together?, had to upgrade to a superior room in order to have a bath despite requested a bath on booking nearly 3 months ago? razor in the room very poor qualitly and cut my face to ribbons, appericiate this is a travel razor but if you cannot supply a decent one then dont bother!!!
