6/10 Good

It's a great location if you are visiting Dun Laoghaire and there are stunning views. However, some of the balconies in one of the newer builds are concrete, meaning you can't see the view when sitting down, and there is no outdoor furniture. The rooms are pretty tired and in desperate need of a refurb. Beds are very comfortable and the room we had (Executive Sea View) was a great size. Service in the lounge is very slow but the staff are pleasant and helpful.

8/10 Very good

We spent three pleasant days at this hotel. Rooms are updated and well-laid out. Bed is super comfortable for those who just arrived on a flight from the US! Staff was competent and friendly enough. We tried to check in about 1-2 pm, originally they said could check in at 4 and store our bags, but a room immediately came free, which was very appreciated. Buffet breakfast and food in the cafe outside the bar were pretty good. All in all a good stay. Thank you!
