Stayed in the Hotel after a family party rather than travel back to Dublin. Great double room online price €108. Bright and airy room with the most comfortable pillows and mattresses, great to see a kettle and selection of tea and coffee. Quirky reception and bar area. Breakfast was one if the best selections I’ve seen in a long time, amoke cereals, jams, breads, cheeses, cikd meat. Abd a breakfast buffet of black white pudding, sausages, bacon, potatoes, mushrooms etc etc fresh orange juice and the stocks of breakfast being constantly replenished but the coffee was lukewarm. Would highly recommend this hotel
Stayed here Sunday until today. Loved every minute! Every staff member encountered made the stay worthwhile. All very polite and easy to talk to. From check in, which I was able to do early as my room was ready despite me only calling in to see if I could leave my car while I went for a wander knowing check in wasn't supposed to be until 3.30pm, to breakfast, evening meal and drinks and check out, I was happy with my stay. Following my early check in, I'd mentioned I was looking for a walk nearby, and the lad on reception recommended Bray Head. To get to it there's a small set of steps leading to a path not too far from the hotel (slight right at the round about). The views on a clear day were wonderful to see! So glad for the recommendation! Breakfast was plentiful. Full fry up breakfast, cereal, cakes, hot and cold drinks, toast, all you could need was there. Ample parking in the car park and no issues encountered parking my hire car there. Rooms did the job. Bed was comfy. Bathroom sufficient although I did notice what I thought was an air lock every time I flushed the loo. However, housekeeping looked at it and showed a way to stop it. Check out process was quick despite reception not being permanently manned when I left at 5am, but instructions of a number to call were easy to follow and staff were with me within minutes. Plenty of advertising leaflets to help with your stay if your unsure what to do or where to visit. Seafront is about a half hours walk but is a simple route if you didn't want to drive everywhere. Pub nearest was about 15 mins away Tesco nearby if you wanted to stock up on goodies! Evening meals were very nice at the hotel, although the restaurant itself doesn't open and the bar food is served within the reception / bar area which are joined. Price of food was reasonable. Drinks prices to me seemed quite steep, but this was the same for anywhere I went in Bray or elsewhere. All in all, I enjoyed my stay and wouldn't hesitate in returning.
Stayed here off a whim whilst traveling through Ireland. Good value for money. Comfy and warm. Would recommend for a pit stop or a night away. Man at desk lovely and attentive. He gave us some tips what to do whilst here. Lovely walks and what not. Would recommend and would return.
We chose this hotel because of previous reviews. They were correct, the hotel is pretty quiet. The room was spacious, the bed was comfortable and we felt comfortable at the hotel. The staff were all attentive. We recommended it to friends who came to stay too.
We stayed with our 18month toddler. A cot bed was provided. Room lovely, comfy bed and all very clean. Staff were excellent. Breakfast was brilliant, great selection. Would definitely recommend and stay again.
Stayed on Sunday night as part of coach holiday. Arrived 8.30 pm and was pleasantly surprised. Booking in was effortless and rooms clean and comfortable. Had a drink in the bar and they even allowed us to order a light bite even though kitchen was about to close. Hotel is not on seaside and is approx 10 min drive from coast but I would stay here again instead of sister hotel the Esplanade
I was on a mixed trip: work and rest. First thing I appreciated was the location. Close to the seaside but not so close I couldn't have quiet when I needed it. No banging dance music or raucous drunks outside my window in the wee hours, no loud traffic when I needed quiet. I slept well, rested well, worked well. At the same time it was the ideal place to be for the travel I needed to do, with good access to major traffic arteries. The second thing I enjoyed was my room. It was very clean, and had all the right furniture including a table with two comfy chairs as well as the desk. It even had a window that opened! Being on an upper floor meant I could enjoy the fresh air without being concerned about people in the car park. The room was spacious, and there was plenty of room for me to spread out my work. The bed was very good -- I woke each morning refreshed and ready for a new day. That brings me to feature number three: breakfast. It's not free, but it is worth every cent if you are serious about breakfast. They have a great selection of fruits and cereals, as well as cooked breakfast and continental breakfast. Or mix and match. I recommend breakfast here! Last but not least, the staff are courteous, helpful, and attentive without being intrusive. Downside? Instant coffee in the rooms. Just ... NO. This happens often enough that I always travel with my own coffee so it was only a minor inconvenience to me, but if you don't carry your own coffee and Aeropress you'll be stuck. Apart from that tiny snag, I enjoyed staying at the Wilton and if I'm in this area again, I'll be back.
We were a coach party staying just the one night on route to Northern Ireland and this hotel offered everything and more. We had requested a wheelchair friendly room for my husband who has limited mobility and the room was superb. The bathroom had everything my husband could wish for, plenty of hand grips, a wet room shower, a seat and in fact it was the best room we have had for a long time. We only had breakfast and it was superb. The hotel was friendly and extremely comfortable.
The hotel is just a few minutes from Bray city center and has free parking. The rooms are clean but a bit old fashioned . The hotel staff is very kind. The breakfast buffet has a lot of variety and everything is good.
The biggest issue I had with this hotel is that the website says about the restaurant "Serves dinner daily from 6pm - 9pm. Offering a full A La Carte Menu and Table d'Hote Menu daily". Don't believe it. The restaurant was closed the whole time I was there except for a few coach parties who were catered for in there. Just as well as the 'lounge' is just a bar in the foyer and is too small. The bar menu is unexciting and very limited. OK for one night maybe but after that... The rooms are OK but cleanliness was a problem. There were hairs from the previous occupier all over the carpet, the bathroom hadn't been cleaned properly (glass still had toothpaste from previous user in it, there were splashes up the wall that hadn't been cleaned and the glass shelf over the basin was filthy). The basin plug didn't work either as the seal was missing off it so no way to keep water in the basin. The deadlock on the room door didn't work and the chain was broken. The wifi didn't work most of the time. No problem connecting to the wifi but no internet connection. Staff said it was because there were too many people on it (well get a better system) but I could get a connection if I walked 20 feet down the corridor so seemed more like a network issue to me on one repeater. Overall disappointing.
