We stayed at this hotel because it was significantly cheaper than staying in the city centre. However, it was still far from cheap and was extremely disappointing. The room was about as small as you could make a double and the bathroom was tiny. It was clean, but every single sound from the corridor or nearby rooms was transmitted through...

We paid extra to upgrade our room. With the promise of more space and a coffee machine. We were given an end room which was extremely cold! We were given heaters instead of a change of room. We were also right by the fire exit, there was work going on at this point and sometimes we were woken through the...

Stayed here one night with a group of friends,taking two rooms. Excellent value compared to many other hotels we looked at. Service was great from all members of reception staff,allowing us to store bags before check-in and after checkout. Despite the more upmarket nature of the hotel compared to our usual choices,and the fact the hotel isn't really aimed at...

Hotel convenient to port, room clean and large. Bed is like a rock and elevators do not have a safety stop on doors, they will close on you. Which counts for my bruises. There are some good restaurants walking distance to hotel

Bad time to visit this hotel as serious, disruptive and very noisy construction work was going on in an effort to provide a new, smart, glass entrance. I've stayed before - location is good and it is adjacent to colleges for work. Was a Best Western Hotel up to February 2017 but this has been dropped. It means we'll, has...

Stayed in the skylon to attend take that concert. Got parking which was free! Proceeded to reception which was quick and efficient. Note there is refurbishment going on and these people are working night and day. It didn't pose a big problem. Checked in and proceeded to our room. What a surprise.... The room was in the new wing. It...

Stayed for one night with family flying out to Australia. Not much to say we booked this hotel as it was close to the airport and was in Dublin City. We booked a superior room and were happy we did, the room was clean and very well layed out with everything you could need including a safe. The bed was...
