Esplanade Hotel Bray

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Had some problems with reservations but desk clerk came through along with a free drink in the bar. Room was clean & large, WIFI in lobby & bar area. Friendly staff in all areas. Seemed like an older clientele here but could have just been the tour groups that were staying there at the same time. We stayed here during St Patties festivities and took the train to Dublin both days of the weekend. Prices were lower in Bray than Dublin so except for the last train running at 11:20 pm it was a good way to spend the weekend. Nice bars in Bray to come back & celebrate some more. Weather was rainy & cold so we didn't spend any time on the beach right across the road but the view from the hotel was awesome. Bray seems like a nice town to spend some time in & this hotel is just a few blocks from the train station.


Location is excellent. Parking is a nightmare though. Room was quite ample sized. General cleanliness needs some work however. Needs some updating . Staff helpful. No place to store luggagep- at all.. a bit of a problem for travellers.

This was a very nice hotel located right on the water in Bray. It was an easy 5-7 minute walk to the DART (train) station to get into Dublin. Hotel staff was always very friendly and helpful. When we first checked in, we had a room that could open into the adjoining room to make a suite - and we could hear absolutely everything going on in that room! As we were thinking of asking for a new room, we discovered that our toilet was broken, and so they checked it out and promptly gave us a new room anyways and offered to help us move our stuff. We had dinner and breakfast (buffet) in their restaurant, both good.
