Hotel room roulette everytime
I have stayed at this hotel at least 4-5 times when visiting the RDS and every time I have stayed in different condition rooms (for same cost) every time. This time my colleagues and I were put in 3 accessible rooms on ground floor. The rooms themselves were ok, bed was very comfortable. Although they had no usb or plug point next to either double bed in room and for anyone and especially for someone with disabilities this was inconvenient and very outdated. The bathrooms were old and really need replacing as the grout in walls is orange and the disability seat had mould on it. Shower was colder or one of the days, the towels are stored inside the shower and the glasses on top of the toilet cistern. Just not acceptable. If this is how you treat your accessible guests then this is not acceptable.
Mouldy/stained shower seat
Outdated, stained shower in room 105 - accessible room. With towels in shower.
Mouldy, dirty shower seat
Chipped ceramic basin that looked like stains

Nice Enough I Stayed Twice
The redevelopment of this historic property into a hotel, the location in the embassies area of Dublin, and a handful of top-notch front-end staff, make Clayton Ballsbridge a nice, convenient, lively place to stay, whilst also near enough Dublin City Centre to enjoy all the Irish capital has to offer visitors in a safe distance. Some notable cautions in fairness would be regarding moderate lack of directly adjacent restaurants, shoppes, convenient laundry, and internally in the hotel some level of roulette with regards to specific room design and amenities, as the original incarnation of the building was in the form of a nineteenth century reformatory property. That said, improvements such as dual lifts seem to be under construction, and as a wedding and conference venue the lobby and basement floor are well furnished, accessible, and quite spacious to move about easily. All in all with some specific adjustments, this property has the fundamental outline to become one of Dublin's best.

The rooms are quite dated and there is no aircon. With the heat is made it incredibly uncomfortable to sleep even with the small fan they provide
