        • Couple
          4.2

          Close to public transport links, Aircoach stop at door and Booterstown DART station down the road

          Bath water would not drain from Bath resulting in Dirty water remaining in Bath, Attempted on a number of occasions to get staff to rectify this, It took until after midnight before a staff member was able to come and look at bath. But was unable to remedy the problem. It would have only taken a pliers to fix... I was given a mater key to use a shower in another dirty room. Being given a master key makes a mockery of any possible room security.

          we just stayed the night with our very young children arriving at 6pm & checked out at 6am the following am. We had an eve meal in the bar which was basic & fine & did not have breakfast. we had an extra bed in the room as requested which I was pleased about. The room was clean & comfortable.
