    Great wee hotel

    Great wee hotel, with helpful staff. Great breakfast especially the fry. The only downside is the cost of parking within the hotel but staff advise you to park on the street where it only costs €3 per day Monday to Friday. Well worth a stay.

    Break for a few sunny days

    We had a most enjoyable stay in Bray at this hotel. It was clean, friendly, close to all amenities and comfortable. I would say generally that were covid conscious and we felt safe. It was quiet... We were at the top of the house and didn't hear other guests. The sea view was lovely. Plenty of hot water in the shower. Housekeeping was excellent... Clean towels everyday. Of the few negatives...WiFi... Kept turning off and I had to get a man to come into the room to fix it. They never made me feel a nuisance but it was an inconvenience. There are no TV channels to watch but Netflix, you tube and other things available. Also for those who might need it there is no lift/ elevator. The other thing I didn't check properly before hand was parking which could add considerable extra to the cost. You have to pay in the very limited hotel area and also on the street outside. You can park a little distance away for completely free parking. It's free on the street outside in the evenings but you would have to get up early in the morning to put a ticket on it as the day starts. It's a lovely area and Greystones also is not far either in the car or on the Dart train where there is a sandy beach. It mostly stony in Bray.

    I hope this helps fellow disable customers

    Stayed in again a hotel put out on hotels.com website . Who ever checks these hotels for guests needs to check properly as a inspection should be carried out by the proper team which gives the star rating . To me this hotel is only as low as A proper 2 star not what is advertised . Yes on health and safety if Your parking your car there be careful you pay and yes not only that the so called manager argued if you pay and someone damages your car the hotel is not responsible but if he reads his law properly he has to have public liability insurance if charging customers that if an accident happens then rest assure I would fight for my rights if I paid for parking . And yes to all the poor disability persons reading this yes the discrimination word against a person wanting to stay there stay away they don’t want disable persons at this hotel as its without lifts or rooms for Disability customers come on Irish tourist board or bray county council be ashamed and your members of parliament this is 2020 and you let a hotel of old building not have rooms or avail for disable members And our fight for disable customers rights.

    The property was easy to locate, check in was very effecient. Had a parking space at the front of the hotel, although we had to pay ten euros to park. (24 hrs). public bar was very good?clean. On placing an order at the bar we were told that we would have to buy a meal to obtain a beverage. Not asked if we were resident at the hotel, which meant we could obtain a beverage without a meal. Room was bright and clean, a little on the small side for the price, but a great view of the prom. Shower room a little small, but functional. Toilet seat a little loose. Breakfast was very good and service excellent.

    Very helpful and friendly host. The room looked very clean and nicely-kept although I noticed the bathroom bin had not been emptied prior to our arrival but apart from that, no complaints. The views are really nice and the location couldn't be more handy!
