The location is good, 5 min drive to centre of town. The decor was classical (which I like) and has a slightly opulent feel to it. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable, spacious but adequate. The TV was too small and they really should have USB chargers as well as normal plugs etc. Beds were very...

Two friends and I stayed in a triple room on the top floor. Nothing special, but a perfectly decent and reasonably priced hotel near Trinity College. Friendly staff. There's​ also a superb craft beer pub, the Ginger Man, just across the road. The only minor niggle was the TV, which was on the small side. But overall, would recommend.

I stayed here for business purposes for 2 nights in March 2017. This is a very good hotel and really good value for the price paid.

This is a top quality hotel. Nice room. Good dining. Perfect central location. And GREAT staff! Chris and Marcel are phenomenal. Any service you need, they will easily take care of it for you. Wake up calls, ordering taxi, special early breakfast, and printing flight boarding passes. I recommend this hotel to everyone.
