Positive Reviews

Excellent Irish Location

Only one hour outside Dublin, this hotel holds an ideal location for sightseeing. Enjoy a picturesque walk up the Sugar Loaf Mountains or a short drive to the sea. It's worth a visit to Powerscourt House & Gardens which is just across the street. Enjoy the 10-minute walk past ivy-covered stone walls to the village of Enniskerry where you'll find plenty of pubs and restaurants to visit.

Fantastic Hospitality

The staff at this hotel is pleasant and attentive, welcoming and friendly. Guests say the staff is helpful in a quiet, professional way, therefore not to be overbearing, but there when you need them, yet still providing the warmest of Irish hospitality.

Gorgeous Hotel Grounds

Framed by fresh flowers and beautiful public areas and gardens, this hotel offers a lovely atmosphere, tranquil and relaxing. It's the perfect getaway spot for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.

Negative Reviews

Hotel Building Needs Some TLC

Guests say the new courtyard block of rooms should be avoided, as they feel more like a travel lodge than a nice hotel. Some guests also found the hotel to be a bit dangerous to navigate as there is no exit lighting in this area of the hotel. You may wish to bring a torch with you.

Rooms a Bit Run Down

Rooms in general feel a bit run down and are on the small side. Many rooms are very basic with tired furnishings. They feel a bit shabby with things like peeling wallpaper. Guests also say it's hard to control room temperature, with some rooms being quite cold while still others are very hot.

Bar Area Needs Improvement

Some guests say that the bar area and bar service are not as cosy and inviting as the rest of the house. The bar has a feeling of being cold and dull. Perhaps a refurbishment would help with warmer tones and better training.
