It was a nice place, the leisure center staff were very rude, the boys too busy on their phone and not paying attention to us at the counter, and then the cleaner wakes in before it was 11, but overall it was ok, just had to sleep so much noise outside side of the building in the morning

The property is near the AP which is why we chose it, frequent buses get you into town, car parking on site which is pay per day. Hotel room was perfect for our needs, clean and comfortable. The main difficulty we had was finding the hotel. We selected the google maps directions from the link on the hotel website. It did not take us to the hotel, we wasted almost an hour at the wrong area trying to find the hotel. Once we orientated ourselves and used a different mapping app we found it. Not sure why that happened.

Hyvää ruokaa saa viereisestä ravintolasta, hyvät ravintolat ja ystävällinen henkilökunta. Huono sisäilma, spa osasto oli pettymys ja todella likainen, aika kaukana keskustasta.

Dear Guest The Bonnington Dublin Hotel is a 3 Star Hotel and has always been a 3 star Hotel. We are currently in the process of renovating the Hotel with a view to upgrading to 4 Star status in late 2019/Early 2020, but we certainly did not lose a star. We have never advertised the Hotel as anything other then a 3 star Hotel so if your booking agent advised you otherwise I would recommend that you discuss this with them directly.

Ich habe nur eine Nacht im Hotel verbracht aber es war absolut ausreichend man könnte durchaus auch länger Dort bleiben. Die Zimmergröße hat mich durchaus positiv überrascht, es war wesentlich größer als gedacht, Dort haben auch locker zwei Personen platz. Das Bad war ok, es hätte ein bisschen sauberer sein können besonders die Toilette war schon extrem abgenutzt. Aber im Großen und Ganzen inordnung.
