Just had a lovely afternoon in the Gresham having afternoon tea. After searching the other hotels in Dublin this hotel was just suited to what my mam would like. Food surrounds and staff all excellent. It was lovely to sit there and watch the world go by on O Connel St.

We were a bit disappointed overall with our stay. There was a warm welcome and the reception staff were friendly and helpful. The main ground floor area was very nice indeed and certainly lived up to the reports of being a lovely hotel. The reason for only grading this hotel as average was that our room was freezing when we...

This hotel has more competition in the 21st century from other Dublin Hotels. However, for location, good staff and not being overly priced, it can't be bettered. Their URL is a permanent favourite in my bookmarks.

The "Quick" check in facility was brilliant - our room was available early and it took less than 30 seconds to collect our keys etc. and go to our room. The staff were all friendly and helpful. The free safe in our room did not work on arrival so I phoned reception and within 3 minutes a member of staff...

This is a very nice hotel and I loved the online check - in idea as I arrived early in Dublin, and my room was ready from 7.45 am! Only a couple of small issues; the first being a snooty bar man who wouldn't allow my girlfriend to borrow a corkscrew and insisted he had none!? 2 minutes later he...

We've stayed here on numerous occasions because we're never disappointed with our accommodation/food. The hotel is wonderfully central with the added charm of cosy comfort and delicious food. We used the online express check in which meant our room and keys were already allocated to us on arrival. As usual our room was spotlessly clean and cosy and at perfect...
