Very friendly and helpful staff! Beautiful pool/spa/sauna area. Excellent location to DART! Only thing we didn’t love was the food.... it wasn’t terrible, but it was only ok. Overall we were very pleased and would come again!

Lovely old hotel within short walking distance of shops and marina.

Had to change rooms three times at check-in due to really bad odors: smell of sewage/dead rat. The final room was good but had to request change of bedding during stay, toilet paper and shower gel.

We were very comfortable and pleasantly surprised! This hotel is beautiful and the breakfast buffet was lovely! We will definitely stay there again!

Was not given the room I booked. It only had one bed. Tried to upgrade and two of the staff said no worries, we would get an upgrade. Both staff dropped the ball. No food in the hotel after 9:00 pm. Sunday night. No vending machines for food or water.

Hotel location excellent. Walk or to Tran station. Little difficult to find at first as there is no road in front of hotel and no sign. But once inside, hotel is very nice

Hotel staff was exceptional. I was given a free upgrade to a suite because I had difficulty making the reservation directly on the hotel's website. However, the bathroom in the suite needs remodeled. The lighting was horrible, there were no outlets, and tiles were cracked. Even though the bathroom needs remodeled, it was still clean. Conference facilitates were nice. Overall, a good hotel.

This is a gorgeous hotel located a 20 min train ride from Dublin. All the workers were so kind, but we did have difficulty understanding how dinner worked. In the hotel booklet it said there were three places to eat at the hotel with three different menus. We found two and with difficulty. Also, there was an exceptionally robust table with kids throwing cars and socks around. The staff ignored them and never asked them to stop throwing things. A sock literally landed on my husband's chair. Not necessarily the fault of the staff, but a manager should have said something. Someone easily could have fallen on a toy car (we moved one out of the way as did a waiter). Food was good and hotel was clean.

Great spot a couple miles out of Dublin. Decent rooms and accomodating staff.

Hotel was nice witha spa and several restaurants. Less than 5 minute walk to train station, which will take you to downtown Dublin. Only complaint was weak wifi connection in the room.

I was there a month ago with my daughter and we were very disappoint. We arrived and the front desk were not cordial at all, our rooms were not ready, and the stuff was not friendly. The hotel is outdated, not well maintain. NOT worthy.

We stayed here for five nights during late October and it was a great hotel! It had one of the most comfortable hotel beds I've ever slept on. We went to a fancy hotel in Switzerland next in our journey and that bed paled in comparison. We were here during the shoulder season of tourism, so I don't know what it would be like in the high season, but we found it to be very quiet and peaceful. It's a non-smoking hotel, which is one of the reasons I picked it. Great value, and we will definitely go back.

There's an ease dealing with free parking and slipping in and out without hassle. Free wifi, and comfy beds. Room lighting is a bit dim; particularly if you have an interior room. I blew it and didn't take the sea view. The grandeur of the place seems a bit tired in public places, but then I also saw them painting, so they might be upgrading a bit. Pleasant enough staff at the desk, but missed the old days when an Irish lit and smile would greet you for those of us tourists Breakfasts were a bit pricey if you didn't use a voucher, and if a bus tour was in, it didn't make for the most relaxing morning. An alternative was the Harry's Bar (?) around the corner for local cafe hangout.

I chose the Royal Marine as I was catching the ferry to Holyhead the following day. Nice hotel, with a nostalgic feel. Great location. Overall nice place.

Loved the hotel. Close to the train easy access to all coastal villages. Feels very elegant. Staff very helpful.

Fist mistake was booking it all on Orb .We had to wait till 6 pm for our rooms after an overnight flight . The suite packge was a joke . Our room was smaller and 3 times the price of a single that my mom stayed in (she booked on the hotel website) I was shouted at by breakfast staff and ridiculed by the front desk help .We were charged for breakfasts we did'nt have . This is a destination hotel for parties and weddings and not at all child friendly . What is really sad about this hotel is that some staff are really helpful and nice and others are just rude .

The hotel is in a nice quite little town just outside inner city Dublin with a nice amount of shopping just up the street. The drive was short to Dublin and located in a great place as you get the city feel without the hassle of being in the city. Hotel staff is nice and friendly. Parking is free, just make sure to ask the hotel staff for a ticket to get out of the garage so you don't have to pay. The rooms were clean and neat. The food was a little pricey and frankly, not that great for the value. My only complaint about this is that this travel site doesn't mention that some of the amenities are extra. Please be aware that use of the pool and fitness centers come with daily fees and they aren't that cheap. Also, we traveled with someone who couldn't walk long distances so please be aware that although doable, it's not the most handicap friendly hotel. Overall though, great value for the money.
