Lovely friendly staff, had chicken curry which was rather dry for my taste but the apple pie was excellent, my room was warm but the bathroom was so cold, there was an electric towel rail there but I was informed that it did not emit any heat. Nice touch to get a cup of tea/coffee in the dining room at 6am in the morning before heading to the airport.

Room was tiny. Receptionist was not very friendly. The breakfast the next morning was a disgrace. Myself and the hubby went down for breakfast at 10:30 and all that was left were sausages and beans. Would not recommend it.

I don't generally complain about hotels and this is a fine hotel and good location for the Airport for an over night stay. The problem is I was allocated a room on the 4th floor, dropped my bags and went out for the night in Dublin. On return at midnight when I entered the room I noticed a strong smell of smoke. This was my fault for not specifying a non smoking room on booking or at check-in. It was too late to change rooms and I did have an unpleasant nights sleep. There are a small number of smoking rooms in this hotel and I was unlucky to be given one being a non smoker. So be warned if you don't smoke make sure the room is non smoking. The breakfast is fine but a little on the basic side. Rooms and hallways look a little tired but were clean.

The room itself was good. The breakfast was very poor. Hot food was disgusting. Fruits and pastries were fine. Parking should be free
