        Lovely Hotel for 2 days in Dublin”

        We paid $105 for this hotel. We got an interior room, facing a small courtyard. I didn't care, as we spent very little time in the hotel, and it was clearly the lowest rate Free parking was great, and the hotel was a 5 minute walk from the DART, which made getting to Dublin a breeze. The bed was comfortable, and staff were all very friendly. A machine in the lobby sold power adapters for only €4, which was very reasonable. Hotel interior was clean, and had that nice old hotel look. There was a full fitness club attached, with better facilities than a typical hotel pool.

        A location you will love to be there”

        I did a terrible mistake by not inquiring in advance and took a cab from the airport to the hotel. I landed up paying 93 Pounds for this journey. But once I reached the place we fell in love with this Palace Like hotel. From outside it gives a real Royal feeling. The air is so fresh as the breeze from sea just engulfs you. The DART train line is 3 minutes walk from the hotel which is most convenient way of reaching Dublin city and extremely inexpensive. The daily walk up to Dun Laoghaire Pier was energizing for both of us. A big shopping mall just on the road, The Maritime Museum and church nearby, the bus stand right there and coach for the airport across the road makes the location so much worth it. The many small pubs and restaurants (includes one Indian too) gave us immense joy to experience Irish food. Not to miss the Chinese restaurant "Mao" close by. You may find rooms bit expensive but the beauty, the location, the ever so smiling pleasant staff make it all justifiable.

        Now a regular hotel to stay at as it is in a great location for the sea views and shops but also not far from Dublin without the Dublin hotel prices. Great food in the hotel but also less expensive food and drink outside nearby. Room and bathroom clean and quick Housekeeping.Value for money.

        I stayed at the Royal Marine hotel for one night to celebrate my birthday and in my room on my return from an outing found chocolates and a card for me. This is the kind of hotel you want to stay in, with staff that are so wonderful. It’s a beautiful hotel in an amazing location. Great facilities including a great pool. Would highly recommend this hotel.

        Amazing stay. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff- they all provided an exceptional service. When there were problems with the heating the manager went out of his way to resolve this. Breakfast was a delight. Close to the station, and Dublin City Centre. With views of the sea I would defiantly use this hotel again.

        Great escape to sea area”

        Nice sea view. Staffs are very helpful. The room is clean, comfy stay. A bit far from city center. The price is too high for non breakfast included rate.

        Good location, near the water. Friendly staff. Very old building, at least I was in an old section. But I would stay again because it's a great value!

        A bit dated”

        Some seating areas need new furniture. I didn’t like that I could not open the windows in my bedroom that seemed to be screwed shut. Air conditioning is a pour substitute. Breakfast needed more attention to detail with bacon overdone and eggs hit and miss. There needs to be a kids curfew in restaurant and bars

        Lovely hotel but front office staff very rude”

        The hotel is lovely and all the staff were lovely except reception. I have never met such rude front office staff. Very unfriendly always appeared as if any query was a hassle to them - it was as if you were always disturbing them. I really cannot understand how management would put this staff at reception as gives the people a very bad impression of the hotel. Staff in the restaurant and bar were fabulous and so friendly perhaps they should be at reception. It would turn me off the hotel.
