Read the reviews and thought it would be great. It is not really a four star hotel. The room was very noisy on the street. We checked out and went to get our bag so thought we would sit and eat our sandwhich. A man who worked at the hotel was extremely rude to us. The guys behind the desks... More

Whenever we visit Dublin, we usually stay in one of the cheaper B&B s on Gardiner street but since this trip was a birthday treat for my fiancé I decided to splash out on somewhere a bit more upmarket. Stayed this weekend for 2 nights. I wasn't disappointed, it's a lovely hotel. The staff we're friendly and helpful as soon... More

This was my first stay at the Gresham but on this experience it will not be my last.

Location excellent, very central. Accomodation and car parking very reasonable. Staff friendly and incredibly helpful. Was able to accomodate my daughter's fussy eating habits. Requested a room with twin beds and a bath...and was granted my request. An extremely satisfied customer. Will definitely stay there again.
