    Fabulous

    The wonderful location. Excellent food. First room offered was clearly a smoking room. On request the receptionist had no hesitation in giving an alternative non smoking room. All staff friendly and most helpful

    I do enjoy a bath and alternative room only had shower

    Nice room, pleasant staff

    Door lock didn't work! Only staying one night, so not too bothered.There was also a dog 3 or 4 rooms away that barked a bit, but didn't stop me from sleeping.

    The friendly staff and the amazingly wonderful locals has made this the best place in Ireland for me. Lovely hotel with lots of atmosphere! Set in the most beautiful valley. Needs more than a quick visit as so much to see. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

    All was perfect

    Location. Friendly, attentive staff. Good breakfast.

    It could do with a good make-over. Cobwebs in room. Evidence of damp around window. Wallpaper peeling. Radiator erratic. Furniture looks tired. Restricted choice of channels on tv.

    Superb

    This hotel has a stunning location within the Glendalough historical site and the Wicklow national park. The Glendalough ruins are literally a two minute walk from the hotel lobby. After 5 pm when the bulk of the tourists leave the area, it is idyllically peaceful. The staff are very helpful and efficient. The cuisine at the on site restaurant was excellent.

    My room was directly above the kitchen, and the kitchen staff played music until late at night. The music was audible through the floor and lessened the tranquil beauty of this site.

    Superb

    I only stayed one night but I found the location excellent for exploring the mountains around Glendalough. The room was clean and comfortable, the food was lovely, and I enjoyed my stay.

    The only small gripe I had was any time I had to go to reception there was rarely anyone there, and I had to wait 10-30 minutes waiting for services.

    Very good

    The hotel's central location for sightseeing. Excellent choice and quality of evening meals in the dining room. Bedroom and bathroom spacious and clean.

    Lack of variety of fresh fruit for breakfast, especially the provision of mixed fruit salad.

    Good

    The location of the hotel was excellent. The receptionist was extremely helpful and arranged a reservation and transport to a nearby restauraunt for us.There was an outdoor snack and bbq area which was a great idea for visitors to the area who wanted to grab a snack at quite reasonable prices.

    The hotel itself is quite dated but other people would consider it charming and quaint I suppose so each to their own! The hotel common areas such as the bar/pub grub area were quite basic and lacked atmosphere. The breakfast was quite disorganised and ran out of food before breakfast was over which was unfortunate for the later people who were still arriving within breakfast hours.

    The location is great as Glendalough is on the doorstep. The breakfast was also nice and the rates aren't too bad either.

    Where to start..the hotel needs a huge makeover because it is shabby inside, and my room had dirty stained carpet, a velux window with battered curtains, no air-conditioning, there was also no signal for "wi- fi" in the hotel. The tv also only had 5 random channels to watch and the staff were a bit "yeah whatever" and took their time with everything...
