Myself and my partner stayed here a few weeks ago. We were given a beautiful room that was spotless! The cleanliness throughout the hotel couldn't be faulted in my opinion. We had a few hot toddys in the bar which were lovely. Staff very efficient and polite but not especially friendly.

Stayed at Gresham hotel for 4 days. The hotel is excellent, clean and very central. Sumptuous breakfast, free wifi and friendly staff. What could one wish more?

While in Dublin we stayed here and really enjoyed the hotel and the atmosphere. Very pleasantly surprised, everyone was very polite and attentive and the location is prime -if like we did- you want to go sightseeing or to get to know the heart of Dublin. Comfy rooms spacious, clean and tidy to great standards.

Genuinely impressed with the helpfulness of every staff member we encountered during our stay. From the guy in the car park who helped us get into the hotel, to the painter who held the lift for us on way to breakfast on Saturday morning. As I mention breakfast, I have to recommend the porridge and that's something I never thought...

Stayed here on business for one night. The rooms are comfortable and clean although my air con unit made loud gurgling noises most of the night and it wasn't even switched on so sleep quality wasn't great. The food is good but not exceptional although the service was very good. Staff here are very polite and efficient. I was here...
