From the moment my daughter and I entered the Glenview, we were made to feel so welcome by the friendly and efficient staff - each and every one of them. Our room was spacious and beautiful, with fantastic views. Our meal was delicious. An added bonus was discovering that the back massage I booked cost only 15e, there was a special offer on that week. Excellent massage too, by the way! Overall, a most enjoyable break and I do hope to return!!!

Room Tip: Higher floors have a better view, ask for a room with a view

We have just returned from another short break in the Glenview Hotel in the lovely Glen of the Downs. Once again we found a lovely, welcoming, friendly atmosphere; Our room, overlooking the Glen, was large and luxurious. We enjoyed good food and took early morning swims in the Leisure centre. The pool is kept spotlessly clean and the centre is among the best we have experienced. We missed dining in the Woodland Restaurant but made good use of the Conservatory bar Restaurant this time round. Hopefully the Woodland will be open next time we visit. Having breakfast there was a little consolation! The weather was beautiful which helped--'though the hotel cannot of course take credit for that! will be back without a doubt.

Room Tip: It pays to choose a luxury executive room--well worth the extra cost for a short break.

A luxury valentines break made special by the warm welcoming staff, beautiful room, excellent food and facilities. The professional yet friendly staff couldn't do enough for us. The meal and
attention to detail on valentines evening was extra special! We will be back!
A few biscuits in the bedroom would be a good idea to accompany the tea and coffee.

Room Tip: Up grade to an executive room - well worth the stunning view over the glen.

selected the location for lunch with an elderly relative and it couldn't have been better, excellent carvery combined with comfortable seating and excellent friendly service made for a successful outing. a good choice when you're out that way, as the full restaurant before 1pm on a Saturday proved. lots of older people who appreciate a more traditional offering - roast lamb, battered fish or southern fried chicken carvery, lots of paninis/sandwiches and a great range of desserts!

We had a wonderful stay at the Glenview Hotel recently. I stayed in the spacious family room with my three children.It was spotlessly clean,quiet and comfortable and very generously supplied with towels in the bathroom. We enjoyed two wonderful swims in the gorgeous leisure centre, and ate in the bistro both nights. On the first night, we celebrated my aunts birthday , and the bistro staff were discreetly helpful with the cake etc. One of the outstanding features of the hotel is the friendly helpfulness of all the staff, even down to a warm smile and a friendly comment in the corridors.Last but not least, the beautiful location with stunning views especially from the restaurant upstairs. It was our second stay at the hotel and the children are begging to go back !! I would highly recommend a stay at the Glenview Hotel

I have just returned from an outstanding three-day break at the Glenview Hotel, just outside Bray in Ireland. Everything was perfect - the management, the staff, the room, the food, the gym, the pool, everything! It is a four-star hotel set in beautiful surroundings, but very easy to access. Very relaxing and a great night's sleep as well. We could have spent our entire time at the hotel (there are also gardens and a pleasant woodland walk in the grounds) but if you want to venture further afield there are a lot of attractions nearby like the famous Powerscourt Gardens, golf courses and there's plenty to do in Bray itself (a seaside town). The price at Glenview? Very, very reasonable - great value for money and they have plenty of offers available. It's ideal for families, couples or business. I will be back for sure, and soon. Angela T.

Room Tip: Our room was perfect and speaking to other guests they all said the same

Attended this hotel for a friends wedding. Room was average. We had our 2 month old with us and the room was on the cramped side with cot etc.

Nice function room with average food. The views from the balcony are nice but a little spoilt by the noise of the motorway.

Was very happy when a member of staff saw us arriving with all our gear (baby) and without being prompted they assisted us to our room. Nice touch and a sign that customer service matters to them.
