Great location and lovely staff. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean. We particularly liked the coffee maker and rituals toiletries. Will definitely stay again.

Didnt spend enough time to give an in depth review. I arrived late and didnt use the bar or restaurant. Check in and out were smooth and staff friendly. Room was comfortable and clean. Bathroom a bit dated with shower over bath and clingy shower curtain. Plenty hot water though. My only gripe is that there was a loud gurgling sound from the ceiling ( probably from the plumbing in the room anove) that came and went intermittently. Though I didnt use the nespresso type macine it was a welcome sight. The usual wraps of coffee etc.were out of sight in the wardrobe. Thanks for the Ballygowan by the way. Great situation only a couple of hundred yards from Grand Canal Dock Dart station. Five minutes your in Connoly Station, 2 minutes the other way, the Aviva and all that Ballsbridge has to offer. You are also on the line to Bray. Very reasonably nightly rate ( for Dublin). Woth the four stars and would happily stay again.

The property is in a nice location, a good 25 minute walk into the central area but there are a number of bars/pubs/restaurants and spa close by. The hotel is nicely decorated. The room looked to have been recently renovated but the bathroom is is need of a re-vamp. The shower is good but more what you would expect from a budget bathroom. The shower also leaks into the bedroom and onto the carpet giving the room a damp smell. Tea and coffee facilities provided in the room. Beds comfy. Overall pretty good but just needs a little more work. Would stay again.
