Further improvement required

In general it was an alright stay with this hotel. We had a 4 night stay as a family. I'm gonna list out all of my comments below. 1. Location. We arrived by public transport. So it was unclear where the entrance is. Especially when we were carrying our suitcases with us. Unless we drive there, it's not customer friendly. 2. Staff's service quality. Almost none of them smiled when serving and I personally could not feel the friendliness from them. The lady who served me when we checked in, she threw me with loads of information about the hotel and the services available which was very overwhelming for someone who just got off the flight. That's not very considerate and we were still very unclear about the services you offer. Also worth to mention that a there was a faulty lamp in the room which I had reported a couple times, yet your staff kept saying the maintenence team was off but didn't arrange anything else for me. This left us with endless waiting and still wasn't fixed when we checked out. Although the room service was nice and fast, so at least that's one compliment on the service. 3. Noise. It wasn't the noise from next door customers. It was the noise generated from closing the doors, drawers etc. No matter how gentle you try to close them, they always make a loud noise. We got woken up by these noises several times every night. 4. Housekeeping. As I mentioned before, we had 4 nights stay in the hotel. But we only asked for housekeeping service for a day. However the tea stains were still where they were before we went out; the layer of dust on the table was not cleaned; some rubbish on the carpet were not cleared neither... These have left me with a suspicion of the role of a housekeeper.

Perfect family hotel!

I'm just back from a very enjoyable stay in this hotel and would highly recommend it. The highlights for me were the indoor play room for children, the pool, the playground, the vending machines came in handy and having a fridge&large fan in our room! The only dislike was being charged €4 a night for parking. Thanks for a great stay!

Pretty decent

The first time I was here (a year previously), the staff was very courteous about getting us into our room so we would not have to wait in the lobby for five hours as we took an early flight. This time, no such luck. The staff do not appear to talk to one another as one clerk told us that all of the rooms in the entire hotel were booked the previous night and that they have nothing available while another told us that we would not be able to check in until three in the afternoon (even though the room was guaranteed to be ready no later than two). We spent several hours practically napping in the lobby as we were tired from our flight and watched as large groups checked out. Eventually, through much pestering and checking in, we were finally able to get our room and rest. Room service takes a while to answer the phone and will beep shrilly in your ear for several minutes until someone either answers or you try again, and again, and again. I recommend just going to the Liffey Valley Shopping Center up the street for something quick to eat. We didn't make use of other amenities, as we did not want to spend too much time in the hotel when we could be exploring the lovely area. Overall, it is a great value and lovely hotel once you can finally get into your room and unpack/rest.

Family hotel

Nice family hotel , it is a nice food in restaurant too. Just charge the car park for €4 euro after 3 hours, a little bite not convince when you want to go out in the shopping.

great value hotel!!

We booked 2 rooms at this hotel, both were very clean and just what we needed. The reception staff are very polite and helpful. My only complaint about this hotel is the young lady who was working in the bar on 13/4/14 (Sunday evening) all 4 of our party commented on how miserable she was. If she smiled I think her face would of cracked. Overall though a great place to stay!!

Good value

This hotel was ideal for our needs and the location suited us perfectly. The room was nice & clean, had an iron & ironing board, hair dryer, tea coffee etc and the bed was extremely comfortable. Secure car parking was great and costs €4/night. Overall a pleasant stay.
