We booked this hotel as a last resort on Six Nations final weekend and St Patricks Day staying friday and saturday nights.It is not the most convenient for the airport or the city but it is clean,the food was good in the bar and breakfast was first rate and good value at 10 euros.The staff were friendly and helpful.The citybus worked well and at 3euro30 was cheap. Do remember exact fare in coins is essential. Ireland and its people are a delight.
I stayed at this hotel just outside Dublin on a business trip. The room was very spacious and clean with flat screen TV and free good speed wi-fi. The bathroom was great with powerful hot shower and separate bath. Also toiletries were great. Me and my colleagues ate at the hotel's restaurant. The food was homely and big portions. The burger i had was excellent. We also had drinks in the bar and found the staff to be efficient and friendly. I marked the hotel a point down because is a little dated but is a good place to stay if you work at any of the business parks nearby.
Popped in on a Sunday afternoon for a carvery lunch. Food was great and the staff were excellent from the reception to the restaurant. With three small kids your window to eat in peace is small but the staff were efficient, helpful and very welcoming. Bogdan is a true asset to the Carlton. Highly recommend for family lunch/dinner
Stayed at this hotel on recent overnight stay in Dublin with family. Easy access from M50 and well placed for getting into city centre. Although we stayed as a family this hotel is geared towards business travel - with impressive facilities for same. The hotel is welcoming with good choice of either "bar food " or a separate restaurant, we ate in the bar and food was well presented and tasty. Bar nice with lots of private areas to chat and socialise. Big spacious rooms with good sized bathrooms. Free parking just in front of hotel. Local shopping just minutes from hotel. Blanchardstown shopping just 10 mins drive. National Sports Centre and Aquatic Centre short drive away. Would stay at this hotel again friendly staff and good service. One issue at breakfast tea/coffee is dispensed from machine into cups, bring back the teapots!
I've stayed here around 4 times and I have always enjoyed my stay. The hotel rooms are clean and the bathroom is very nice and clean. The hotel offers free parking and wifi. Staff have always been very helpful. There is a bus right outside the hotel that takes you into city centre and back again which is really handy and there is the Blanchardstown shopping mall less than 10 mins drive away. I would definitely recommend staying here.
Stayed for one night in an executive room, the room was fab with floor to ceiling windows, gorgeous décor and huge bathroom. The bar was lovely and open, staff very friendly. Restaurant was lovely, set menu was a bit limited but that was due to the package we were on. Breakfast was varied and fresh. Free parking on site and close to all amenities.
Junior Suite not worth paying extra for, do not book! Exact same room we stayed in under the illusion we were getting a junior suite can be seen pictured under superior double and executive double with very different price tags!! King size bed advertised to be part of the supposed junior suite is two single beds tied together! Extreme disappointing for the price paid! Rude blunt staff on check in and check out! Won't be back, will advise people to stay far away!
Nice hotel, very friendly staff, great breakfast but the double bed was unbearably hard, squeaky and uncomfortable in general.... really disappointing. The room was called a "superior" double room but I fail to see what was superior about it, it was nice but definitely not above average and the bed really let the whole experience down.
On previous occasions I stayed in another hotel in Blanchardstown, but based on my husbands and sons very positive experience when staying for a few days last July, I decided to stay for a night with my two girls . We were offered a very competitive rate for 1 nights dinner and B&B. We sat down for dinner at 7.10 and at 8.30 the starters still hadn't arrived. The manager was very apologetic and offered some drinks, which was small consolation to kids who were starved. The food when it finally arrived was edible but not worth waiting that long for. The breakfast buffet was plentiful and better than expected . The rooms are very comfortable and well appointed. On check out I asked about sandwiches for the kids. The receptionist explained that on Sunday's ,only a carvery was available in the restaurant. Another receptionist intervened ,went to check with the kitchen and returned offering soup and sandwiches made to order . She even gave me a price for each . Funnily enough when I went to order sandwiches in the restaurant the waitress knew nothing about it ! I went out to the reception to find my friend but alas she was no where to be found. So we left.To be fair to the hotel our dinner was taken off the bill. The hotel has a great location close to the NAC but the service in the restaurant needs improving .
Having stayed at this hotel more than once in the past it is the perfect location for my work. The staff are always helpful and the guys in the bar even mentioned my last visit with a prompt! Something that makes you feel at home. Rooms are clean, it has everything you need.
