"Disappointed this time round"
Have to say having been & written numerous reviews on the Gresham,i was a bit disappointed this time round,room was very small & basic,heat was awful in room,had to leave window open all night,which mean't noise was terrible,rang down to ask for some water,only to be told I had to purchase it from bar & pay for it,which resorted to me going to shop across road & buying bottles,which im sure was cheaper.
"Lovely Hotel, Excellent Breakfast, Awesome Location"
Our tour group began here for 2 nights in Dublin and we came in a day early. It is a lovely hotel in a premier location right on O'Connell Street. As part of our tour, we received buffet breakfast and it was delicious, with a lot of options: eggs, bacon/ham, potatoes, mushrooms, baked bean, tomato, oatmeal, yogurt, fruit, seeds, nuts & dried fruit; and danish. I may have missed some items. Coffee, tea & juices flowed freely. The staff were friendly, efficient and handled our groups with ease. Upon arrival, we had reserved a king size or large queen (through the tour company) but were given a small standard twin room. Being married this was not acceptable. We communicated with the front desk and we were able to change to a much nicer and larger queen room. Our reservations were made months in advance and we were not sure how we got a twin room and this disrupted our stay having to repack and move. Before we arrived I communicated via email and the responses were courteous and timely. My enquiries were about location to Trinity, etc., and transportation from Airport. (We ended up taking the bus after picking up our Dublin Pass at airport, which included transportation for free.)
"NOISE NOISE NOISE!"
The road in front of the hotel is under construction!banging all night long!clearly the hotel knows of this as there are earplugs in the room!avoid any room at the front of the building.just as a hotel notifies people if the actual building is under construction they should absolutely share this information,at least the workers would not be working all night like they do in the city.
"Tea for 2"
We went to to the Gresham hotel for afternoon tea and cake. It was a very lovely atmosphere and the price was very reasonable. It's a pity I didn't take any photos of the Michelin style lemon mousse, but the flavour didn't live up to the style presented.
Lovely location in historic Dublin area. Within walking distance of Trinity College, Grafton Street, the GPO, and other historic sites. The hotel is an older building, but well-kept. The breakfast is very good and the lounges are also nice. Excellent staff. Very good experience. Recommend.
