Reviewed 3 November 2012 via mobile

Woke up to a beautiful view of the small mountains surrounding the hotel. Rooms not very modern but warm and comfortable. Breakfast is usual fare without great panache. Avoca shop just up the road and Powerscourt not far either.

If you have a car, it is very easy to get into Dublin, to the shore and into the mountains. Most of the staff is friendly. Nice breakfast.

Apparently booking a room doesn't mean the room is actually available when you arrive. We've booked a family room for 3 nights. But the first night we had to stay in a 2-person room with camp beds because no family room was available. There was no financial compensation.
Bathrooms are outdated. The pool is nice but very outdated. You have to wear swim caps!

Room Tip: The family room is spacey and nice. Just make sure you get it when you've booked it.

Dear Guest
Many thanks for your feedback on your recent visit to the Glenview Hotel. I am sorry we did not have a family room available for your first night. I am delighted to hear we could facilitated your request for your other two nights stay.

I am also sorry to hear you felt our pool is very outdated. We ask our guests to wear swimming caps for health and safety reasons. I would like to apologize if this caused upset.

Thank you again for your review and we do hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back to the Glenview in the future.

Kind Regards,

Brian McNamara

We stayed for two nights earlier this year, my parents in a large spacious double room, I with 3 kids in a family room. Lovely views from the rooms. The service was excellent, very good value, staff were very courteous and couldn't do enough for us. My daughter is gluten intolerant and they had lovely gluten free bread for her. The rooms were warm, clean and modern.

I had a lovely facial in the spa which uses Dermalogica products. Gardens and nearby walks lovely, very convenient location to visit Greystones, Bray etc. Nice pool area, and above all, great value for money. Food was excellent too, both breakfast and dinner (we dined in both nights having originally only planned to eat there one night as part of the deal).

Room Tip: They only have a limited number of large family rooms so book early if you need a bigger room.
