The hotel was nice! The staff was very friendly and nice! However, the area outside was very dirty and very loud! If you want to sleep or if you want to be able to sleep before 3am this is not the hotel for you. Also parking is horrible- literally no parking anywhere close to the hotel!

The Martello is fantastic! I can’t recommend this property enough. Bray is an underrated city in Ireland - and the Martello makes it even better! Excellent location, wonderful staff and prime food/bar/restaurant on site. Samy the bartender is a wonderful mixologist and fun to chat with too!

The service was so so.They are doing a lot of renovations and there is dust EVERYWHERE. I can understand working certain times and cleanup after, butin passed 8pm is not acceptable when you have a small child. The rooms were soooo tiny you can barely get around. You open the door and the door nearly hits the bed. The food was ok. Seemed put together in a rush. Lastly there was NO heat in our room. We tried the remote (it was disgusting) the wall heater, resetting it. When I noted this, they just said ok, thanks.
