Don't be fooled!

Lousy. We had an unexpected trip and booked last minute because of the pool. What they don't tell you is that the pool is only open for kids between 9-6. We got there at 6 and while there was NO ONE in the pool, we weren't allowed to bring our kids in. When we arrived with suitcases, no one greeted us, no one took the bags. I got my own trolley, brought them in, and then brought them up to my room. At "Ireland's Best Hotel" this seemed pretty lame. We had a king sized bed and a single in the room advertised as an "executive twin" but were told we had to get a second room for our kids. This turned a good deal into a bad deal for us. The staff was also quite unhelpful. They didn't know bus routes/prices to the neighboring village, and gave terrible directions to the bus stop. Overall feel was snobbery not warmth. Also, it cost 40 Euro to get from the airport. So it wasn't close enough to be convenient for a close trip.

Very pleasant experience

Stayed here for four nights at a very competitive rate. The welcome/check in/check out was really good. The room was very comfortable (TV was a bit small and dated). Might have eaten breakfast but couldn't find any prices in the room? Free wifi! We were at the far end of the hotel which was perfect for a noise free nights sleep. Facilities were very good (you need a swimming cap for the pool). All staff through out were well trained and friendly. Fresh milk was available to the room for tea. (Delivered to your door in minutes free of charge. Location is great if you have a car (parking is free) only 20 minutes to the city centre. Great location for exploring and would stay again and recommend.

Friendly 'posh' hotel

I was travelling on business and wanted a clean, decent hotel on this side of Dublin. This was great. On the downside the room was stuffy, with no aircon and because it was by a flat roof the windows had limited opening. The restaurant and the bar were good, though strange jazz music piped in the restaurant. Breakfast was excellent (pay in advance at the front desk for saving nearly half the price)

Ideal to unwind in this beautiful hotel

Really enjoyed a one night break here during the easter holidays. The location is perfect and nice extra touched added to the outdoor areas should you wish to eat or drink outside. The staff were so friendly and went out of their way to be helpful.However some attention needs to be spent on the smaller details. ie hinges in mirror arm in bathroom were broken so no point in having the mirror there - TV Remote was held together by tape, tiles broken on the seats of the steam room which could cause injury, lack of ice machine on corridors but overall an excellent stay. would definitely go back again

Great hotel - location a bit out of the way

Overall we had a fantastic stay at the hotel. Rooms were excellent - spacious and clean. Breakfast was realy tasty, great selection of hot and cold food. Pool / gym was great although the jacuzzi was pretty cold. Bars & lounge nice, drinks fairly pricey. We were at a wedding and food was very good and overall experience was great. The only real drawback is the location - hotel is on a country road 10 mmins from Castleknock. Taxis required if you aren't driving.

Fantasic couples retreat!

My husband booked a surprise stay at this hotel for our wedding anniversary in august this year. We stayed friday and saturday night. I have nothing but GREAT things to say about this hotel. The pool and spa were amazing, so clean, and great for relaxing! we had breakfast saturday and sunday, we're early risers so we were down for about 7.30am and the spread was wonderful. We opted for the continental breakfast as we are both vegetarians so not much point going for the irish breakfast option! Lovely cereals, breads, pastires, cheeses and fruit, a huge selection and all very tasty! We also had dinner in the hotel on the saturday but opted for the bar menu as there was only one veggie option in the park restaurant, but not a complaint, just what we chose to do, and glad we did as the quiche and grilled mushroom with brie were lush! we wanted a relaxed break away from the city with nothing but peace, quiet and quality time together and thats exactl what we got! we would more than happily stay here again, clean room, helpful staff, spa and pool included in the price of the stay and yummy food, what more could you ask for?

if you're vegetarian, eat from the bar menu, the only option in the restaurant for dinner is risotto which im sure is lovely, but just a tad boring.
