Set in wonderful scenery, nestled in the Wicklow Mountains. Very comfortable rooms with state of the art touches i.e. touchpad for lights/curtains. Wonderful pool, spa and gym. Also great for golf lovers with course over the road. Overpriced breakfast, even overheard staff recommending lovely cafe's in nearby village.
The hotel was fabulous. The pool and spa are a must. The food is excellent. If you enjoy golf, you'll be in seventh heaven. Breakfast is outstanding. The Powerscourt gardens make for a pleasant day.
the fountain overlooking the valley
There was plenty to do and see on the grounds but best of all, the rooms and bathrooms were beautiful. The bed was so comfortable I felt like I was sleeping on a cloud! nothing - awesome
friendly staff,lovely surroundings wasnt pleased having to pay for internet in lobby.
The facilities and the food was excellent
Im sorry but absolutely nothing I have stayed in many Best Western hotels and this has to be the worst.Actually this has to be the worst hotel I've ever stayed in period.The photos of the rooms are a complete lie, they are either a completely different hotel or are some 10 years old.I had damp dark stains all over the wall, the floor was dirty, the settee was black with grime and my seaview window I can only presume looked over the sea as the window pain was completely covered in bird excrement,feathers and general dirt.These windows must not have been cleaned in months.The next day we also had to go to another hotel to get a coffee as the bar did not open until six.The only positive I can find is that the bedsheets were at least clean.
the hotel is very good value and has a plesant atmosphere
fantastic location, very nice decor, good staff
Our original room was disgusting, it was small, stank of smoke and the outlook was awful, however, on request we were able to upgrade (at a cost to us).
we really enjoyed our stay the hotel very clean and the staff so friendly . the food was exellent buffet breakfast and the evening meal was very good Esplanade Hotel On The Seafront great place to stay we just had 1 mishap as someone set the smoke alarm of in the early hours of the morning and work us up and we couldnt get back to sleep but i guess these things happen
the seaview, its close to dart so shopping in the city was made easy. parking. the hotel carpark was not easy to find if you missed it you had to drive around the block and try again due to a one-way system
peace and quiet good food service good hotel overall very good ererything ok no complaints
we were in dublin as a group of 20 for a martial arts competition and our stay couldnt have been better.will return next year
comfortable, quiet and clean room. Great breakfast and friendly and helpfull staff. Nothing.
Good Food, nice facilities Would have been nice to see more Irish employees
The staff at the royal are all very helpful and extremely friendly Having stopped at the royal several times I was a little disappointed with standard of care and attention to detail that we have become accustom to on our previous visits. ie: The room carpet was badly marked and dirty, the bed cover was stained and damaged, it appeared that the only areas being given this attention to detail were the recently refurbished areas
Smoking catered for Long delay gaining late evening access after midnight
The location of the hotel is excellent and it has good leisure facilities Queues at check out with only one person dealing with guests
location staff wasn't too interested about any query or problem
swimming pool was great for the children & the room was lovely and warm.
The Leisure Centre
The staff were friendly. This hotel was disgustingly dirty. I have stayed at hotels all over the world and have never had an experience quite like the Royal Hotel. Dirty towels, mould growing on the inside of the window. Cramped room. Dirty sanitary towels in our bedroom bin on arrival. I ended up checking into a different hotel it was so bad.
very warm & friendly - we have a little boy, and the staff treated him with respect and nothing was too much trouble - he enjoyed it so much, and when he's happy we're happy
We were very impressed with the space and the furnishing of the bedroom The room was very dark- no centre light, difficult to see to work
Spacious comortable family room. Excellent value for money for a family stay as rooms can accommodate up to 5 guests. Broken shower head in bath room and drinks machine located outside our door!
We had a superior room which was excellent, large, clean, superb bathroom, good power shower, large bed, crisp, clean linen, no fault at all - but it was a new hotel.
It was very quiet
I found the staff to be friendly and helpful, the hotel was clean and the food was excellent
the staff wherenice and helpfull My room was on the top floor got very hot and when i opened the window the noise from the road was very loud
The value distance to town but not a problem if you have a car(and dont drink)
The beds were comfortable and for the most part, it was fairly quiet. The blowdryer caught fire our first night. Our last two nights were in a room on the inner courtyard and there was no adequate ventilation. Airconditioners or fans would have made our 2nd stay much more comfortable. A.so, the price for the breakfast was overpriced. The express breakfast could have been more a "continental" style offering a choice of breads, juices, toasts, yoghurts.
Friendly staff and good food - great value
friendly helpful staff
The staff were really nice and the food was excellent. It was very reasonably priced. n/a
We booked the Martello because its right above a lively pub/restaurant with free entry into the niteclub. Was a Halloween weekend so the place was buzzing! The hotel itself is clean, and basic no frill's but for a night's stay that did not matter... And for the price its not bad, its great to be able to just walk upstairs after a night out... You can still hear the nightclubs music pumping so if you like to have an early night at the weekend then bring earplugs.. The receptionist was a bit off at first and seemed like we had bothered her with our arrival, but she was grand after a few mins.
very good value for money clean spacious with good facilities and excellent food.
Reception staff were very friendly and helpful.The bar was comfortable with a good selection of food. The hotel was central and a good location. The hotel need refurbishment as it is very dated. There are no lifts and very poor access for those with disabilities.
Location & price Dirty bedcover, no hot water and heating was left on all night. I also had to carry my luggage up a couple of flights of stairs.
The reception staff were friendly. The hotel did not have many guests but the bar was very busy. I requested a 'quiet' room on check in and I was given a nice 'appartment' at the back of the hotel. The hotel has a lovely view from the front terrace over the Bray Bay and it is next to The Porterhouse brewpub.
friendly staff ,affordable,
the receptionist gave us a family room even though we booked a double room with no extra charge, which was really nice, it is right along the beach and the town is only 5 mins walk, it had a really busy bar and they gave us a quieter room because we had a young child with us which was great the room was really warm and there was vents right outside our window so couldnt get much air into the room, and there are loads of stairs!!!!!! no lifts
Location, Apartment within the hotel very handy Workmen fixing lights, no lights on dark corridor, carpets were very dirty as result of workmen, mattress lying on the stairwell, dirty dishes & glasses left on corridor - quite suprised about the cleanliness or lack of... I would like to think this was a once off and the hotel usually keeps better standards !
