Friendly staff

The staff at the hotel were very good, friendly and helpful. We had a budget room and although very clean the cold water was just a dribble, the bath needed to be replaced and the toilet needed to be fixed in place. It's location was good, bus to Dublin easy to get. Over all a good place to stay, just needs a make over.

Quality local hotel

Just a short stay at this hotel and my 1st, but would definitely stay again, stayed in budget room which was perfect in every sense, even better than more expensive hotels I have stayed in. Friendly efficient staff, loads of parking and just a short hop from Dublin city centre, perfect!

Cheap Accomodation with Amazing gym and pool

The hotel looks a little run down from outside, but once inside you may be surprised, The bar, restaurant and reception areas are very nice. Room was bit grubby, but the main reason we booked it was price, location to town and the fact it had a brand new (lush) swimming pool and sauna facility, with a good gym, these can be used as a hotel guest. If not worried about the room, then go for it!!

Terrible

There was nothing good about this hotel. We were extremely surprised that it was a Resency. When we tried to walk down the main stairway to the lobby, we could not see. At 9:00 PM, we had to find the light switch to turn the lights on. Most of the bulbs were out anyway. We went to the restaurant to get dinner. We were not waited on for 45 minutes. No one asked if we wanted a drink or gave us a menu. Finally a waiter came with a dish of French fries. He said we ordered them. I'm sure they were ordered by the people that got fed up and left. We know they were serving food, because we saw them walking away from the kitchen. We left and walked down the block for dinner. Then the next morning at breakfast, they seemed to be annoyed that we were even there. Good thing it was a buffet. They were too busy getting ready for a tour bus. I think that was the same problem with dinner. Oh, and when it rained the night we were there, the room leaked!

Updating required

The room , and specially the bathroom needs to be updated, there were humidity signs on the bathroom ceiling. I have been in lower budget hotels with more modern and better maintained rooms. Customer service was good.
