    Management should focus on costumer service it needs lot of improvement!! Despite the place needs a good refurbishment at least the service could be better . Holding deposits incase any damages happens in the room it’s something never seen in hospitality even in b&b !

    Poor service dated & dirty.

    Poor service in this hotel. On check in we asked for an ice bucket & 2 wine glasses (didn’t think this was a big request). We were told to go to the bar & get it ourselves by reception. We had bags with us as you would expect while checking in & wouldn’t have been able to carry it. They also don’t tell you at check in that the car park for the hotel is not theirs & you need to pay and display to park there. It is explained in an information leaflet they give you with the envelope with your room keys but let’s face it who reads that stuff. This is vital information that would be a nice courtesy to be told about on checking in. Rooms are dated & full of cobwebs. Looked as if the room hadn’t been cleaned since before Covid restrictions. Shower is atrocious. Takes about 10 minutes running before any hot water comes out at all and it sounds like a banshee has been set on fire too. Not only do you have to endure the banshee screeching shower and wait 10 minutes before it’s hot you then have to endure 5 seconds of excruciating hot water followed by 5 seconds of ice cold water on repeat the whole time after that no matter what setting you turn the dial to. If you want comfort, cleanliness & any sort of good customer service is avoid this hotel. Don’t like giving bad reviews but this place deserves nothing better unfortunately.

    DIRTY AND POOR.

    Started off not knowing where to go as the sign postage were directing us into the leisure centre rather than the main reception. We checked in, and were then unexpectedly notified that we must hand up a 50 euro deposit. Once on arrival we sat our bags down. We had no kettle, and We had no hair dryer, which in the brochure stated we'd have one in the bathroom. As we sat on the bed we felt a bit of dust falling on our laps. So myself and my girlfriend began to check the room. On our way around the room we found a bug crawling around and thick dust and dirt lying on our mirror and bed rest. I found this appalling especially since I am an asthmatic and have been coughing ever since I left this so called hotel. We left Our door hanger on so we could have our room serviced. Only our bins were replaced. We had to book to go to the swimming pool due to social distancing. One we arrived at the swimming pool there were more than people in the pool jumping around. I was very disappointed with my stay in this hotel. I enjoyed my stay in bray but would have preferred to stay in a different hotel. THIS HOTEL SHOULD NOT RECEIVE 3 STARS.

    Stayed for one night. Good location . Hotel clean and friendly staff. Food wasn’t great. Has dinner that night lovely starter but main course wasn’t nice. Breakfast wasn’t great. Having to be served at the table is very understandable but the portions were very small. Had to keep asking for everything we wanted. When we asked for more toast after one slice each we were given another half slice each. I left feeling hungry which never happens after a hotel breakfast.

    You have to pay for the parking. Heating was not working. They ask you for a deposit, photo ID and your home address although the accommodation was paid in advance. The table in the room was wobbly etc. The room numbers go as 521, 523, 524, and then 522. It took me 20 minutes to find the room
