"Friendly & Helpful Staff"
The staff at this hotel are so friendly and helpful. A special word has to go the receptionist who checked us in on Saturday evening, she was most helpful and had such a pleasant manner. I stayed with my 2 sons and the enjoyed the experience. The location is also excellent.
"Breakfast had lots of choice."
Staff very helpful and pleasant
Spent 3 nights at the Mespil in february 2013. Very impressed with everything. Didn`t use the restaurant but the breakfasts were very good with a huge choice - to suit anybody. The room and bed was very comfortable and little noise disturbance. Position of the hotel very good plenty to do (eats and drinks)in local vicinity and about a 15 minute walk to the city centre. Buses around the corner and Dart stn about 10 minutes away along the pretty canal. Dublin offers something for everyone but do be prepared for the cost of living. Much Much more expensive than uk -including London and Brighton. However we goit great deal at the hotel and would recommend this to everyone
Reception area needs updating - dull and unattractive
"Great quality hotel and good value for money."
"Excellent value for money"
I had seen the Mespil Hotel in Dublin before but never stayed there. The exceelent offer from HD was not to be missed for a 3 star hotel and I was not dissapointed. It is within easy walking distance of the town centre ( about 25 mins) and for rugby fans much closer to the new Lansdowne Road stadium. The hotel was spotlessly clean and the staff were always helpful. The breakfast ( included in the price) was immense and I will have no hesitation in making it my first choice when I next visit Dublin
"Perfectly located for both the city and events at the Aviva."
Extremely good value.
" Clean. Comfortable. Good service. Good food. Friendly helpful reception staff. Would come again. "
A very comfortable pleasant hotel. Rooms spacious, clean and cosy. Staff helpul and friendly. Surprisingly good menu for breakfast and other meals. Speedy elevators. Taxi rank at front door. Some car parking. Would definitely recommend the hotel..
All staff very friendly, nice breakfast, nice to get free paper to read at breakfast
"great location for RDS and central dublin but poor for parking"
"Very clean, comfortable rooms"
Really nice hotel, pleasant staff, nice food, handy for city centre and shopping. Could do with more car parking on-site - impossible to get parking especially when it is raining
"Great location just 10min walk from st Stephens green"
"Excellent Value For Money"
First Class 3 star Hotel a short walk from Dublin City Centre which may be a problem for some people.Excellent Decoration, Bedrooms and Food. One important point all the staff are prepared to go the extra mile for the customer.
The Hotel was excellent but the room was too warm and unable to turn radiator down.
"It`s a lovely hotel to stay in,and is in a great location for sightseeing-socialising in the city."
We were disappointed to find that the bistro was closed and we had difficulty in finding the hotel from the directions given on line as they started from the airport and not from any other direction. We otherwise had no other complaints. The breakfast was good.
"Excellent hotel. Fabulous stay, made my weekend break all the more enjoyable!"
Excellent hotel. ALL staff where extremely helpful and pleasant. Room was clean, well decorated and spacious. Cleaning to high standard and room cleaning was not disruptive to our stay (something that I have previously found at other hotels I have stayed in) location was good. I would definitely staff here again and have already recommended this hotel to friends and work collagues!
"Great location, good rooms"
Couldnt fault it for accommodation and breakfast.
"Customer service was excellent"
I have to say from the min we walked into the mespil we were greeted with a very warn welcome ... The room was clean there was free wi fi which is always a plus ....:) the reception were brilliant `, I can safely say that we wd def come here again ... The location was just far enough away from the town centre if you don`t mind a walk and I think perfect price for two nite stay when doing the marathon ....
"Only thing lacking is air con"
Great hotel , very clean , nice staff ,great location, only thing is rooms are roasting when weather warm , cant leave windows open at night because of noise from traffic outside ....apart from this one thing had a really good time and would stay again ..
"Staff went out of their way to cater for me as a coeliac; I thoroughly enjoyed my stay"
I chose the Mespil because I had read that it was coeliac friendly and found this to be more than true. I cannot praise the staff enough for the care and attention they offered me as a coeliac. I stayed with my 11 year old and, again, have nothing but praise for the way he was treated. I woudl definitely stay again!
Only stayed one night but everything was great. Good friendly staff and check in was effortless. Would definitely use again.
A good location, very friendly and helpful staff, high standards of food and comforatble rooms.
"Original room very far away but they moved us without question the following morning"
Very helpful staff and overall good facilites but some of the bathrooms look like they could benefit from refurbishment. Overall a very enjoyable stay
"good size room, good quality tea "
overall very pleasant and welcoming reception
"Staff were very friendly and helpful"
My wife and I went to Dublin for the Dublin Super Cup soccer competition. We found the Mespil on an internet search and choose it because it was very competitively priced. We were pleasently surprised by the Mespil and would consider staying there again next time we are in Dublin.
"friendly and helpful staff. good location."
My wife, 2 month old baby and I stayed for 2 nights. We enjoyed our stay and found the staff friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious, clean and tidy. Great breakfast. The location of the Mespil Hotel was good and is a 10min walk approximately to Saint Stephens Green. A real bonus for us was the free car parking at the back of the hotel, as this was very convenient with all the gear that goes along with a baby!!!! We would definitely stay again at The Mespil Hotel.
Really enjoyed our stay here. Requested smoking rooms - no problem. the two rooms were lovely, especially the twin room with the separate sitting room and huge bathroom (an unused bedroom ideal for its new purpose. Even though it was a concert weekend the staff could not do enough to help. Dinner menu a bit limited; we had fish and chips the fish was a bit like Donegal Catch - not what we expected. But it was fine. Breakfast was lovely. Ideal location for both the Aviva and for heading into the city centre. Felt very safe walking around at 3 am. Definately would return.
"Extremely helpful front desk staff"
Good location, inexpensive, very good value for money, excellent food and service
"Great venue for Dublin weekend"
We had a great stay at The Mespil. The room was very comfortable, if a bit warm. The location is very convenient for entertainment, eating and shopping. Hopefully we can secure a good rugby weekend rate and we will be back!!!!!
"just a brief 1 night stay. pleasant area except for street noise after midnight. "
"Nice hotel in a good location"
Hotel was nicely decorated but in a no frills style. Room was decent size for one night, with comfy bed and nice bathroom. There were tea and coffee faciliites but no biscuits. Although room did have an iron and ironing board which is always useful. The wake up call in the morning was a knock on the door rather than a phone call, which was appreciated at 4.30am. Overall a well located, nicely decorated and very functional hotel. I would stay again.
"Rooms too hot...so hot I felt sick.....very uncomfortable and stuffy. Can`t open windows so how do y"
"Beautiful hotel, very friendly welcoming staff, only regret is we didn`t stay long enough!!"
We requested a non smoking room but on arrival were told they were all booked out, we were given an apartment instead & it was fantastic, very modern, clean & spacious. I would highly recommend!!
"Room comfortable and service excellent. "
I facilitated a training workshop in one of the conference rooms. Staff were accommodating and excellent in providing me with resources for my group - refreshments and lunch very punctual. Thank you
"standard and ordinary"
Spent just one night in this hotel, friendly staff and nice hotel. Availed of the free on site car parking. Would stay here again, very reasonable rate.
"Location was good, Friendly hotel staff, Room was spacious"
Hotel Location was good not right in the centre but only 15mins walk away. Staff friendly and helpful, only downside was the bathroom could have done with an extractor fan/refurbishmentcarpets in corridoor were stained.
