6/10 Good

Just okay
The hotel is in a great location and the hotel staff are helpful and friendly. However, the hotel is quite old and the bed, fitting, and fixtures are very worn. Our toilet was difficult to flush and the sink had almost no water pressure. We didn't bother trying the shower.

8/10 Very good

Brilliant staff and friendly ..annoyed to be charged £500 for two nights bed only just because Depeche mode was playing in Malahide ..usually less than half that price with breakfast included ..found that a bit naughty and to not be offered a breakfast for that amount was very very poor.
