I given this hotel two stars and that is just for the staff, other than that my stay was terrible, the Bed which is the most Important part of your stay was just awful the first nigh the springs where coming up through the matress and in the morning I had asked for the it to be changed well I was sorry I did as the matress they put on the second night was just as bad if not worse it was so bad that we ended up sleeping on the floor and chair at 4.30am , I did however mention it to the reception in the morning and she said they where in the process of changing all of the beds but unfortuanlty they did not get around to this room which is not good enough as in my opinion is the most important in the hotel stay.

Brilliant hotel. Do not stay if you are on a diet as the food is fab!!! lots of choice and cooked to perfection, we had dinner on the night we arrived and it was so good we ate again the next night. the breakfast was just as good with great choice of things. the staff couldn't bend over enough to please us and the room was bigger than normal rooms with a sofa and big bathroom. the covered carpark is just next door and very safe. we will be back again. thanks for great stay. xx

A pleasant stay in a comfortable and understated older style hotel. The staff were good and the food appetising. We intend to return for a few days to explore this part of the coast.

Decent hotel, only issue is that i have never before been in a bathroom where there is absolutely no shelf or surround to the sink to place any items on, just never seen that before. Everything else was fine.

Stayed at the bracken court hotel recently and have to say i was very disappointed with it. The room we booked was fine, spacious and clean, however for a 4 star rated hotel i would expect a higher standard as regards decor and cleanliness. However my main problem was with the noise i had to endure during my stay, there was a wedding on the first night and between the noise of the disco and people smoking outside and to top it all a fire alarm going off after 3 in the morning kids didn't sleep till 4 and to be honest i didn't get any. I complained during the night, got nowhere, and again in the morning at which time i was informed that there was 2 more parties that night. I asked to be moved but i was told there was nothing available. An hour later i went once again to reception and told them i was checking out due mainly to the lack of sleep and the potential lack of sleep and it was only then was i told i may get a different room. Needless to say i didn't want to take my chances and left. While i understand these functions take place but i think it would have be nice to inform guests of them , especially those who are not involved in them!!! So i wont go back to the hotel in any hurry. I think 4 star rating is far too much for it. It clearly needs to pull up its socks and upgrade in every aspect to retain 4 star status

We attended my nephews wedding on the 25 April, and stayed overnight, food was beautiful, and all of the staff are so friendly and helpful, we also had our wedding there last year, and can't say enough good things about it, the staff even remembered us from last year! Very relaxed atmosphere, looking forward to our complimentary anniversary stay in a few weeks

by Gloria McClung on Apr 28 2014 10:01

Five of us stayed last week at this hotel and overall it was just ok. The food was reasonable, rooms average but our one big problem was that the bedrooms really stank of cigarette smoke. We mentioned to reception and they said they were still a smoking hotel but were working on it.Inside the hotel was very clean but the outside entrance area was very dirty and again containers on the walls were overflowing with cigarette ends. I would rate this hotel a 2 star and I do not understand the other raving reviews, as this was the reason I booked this hotel and I was quite disappointed.

by cc on Apr 16 2014 11:09

The hotel was lovely and clean, the staff are friendly too however there are room for improvement for the restaurant staff.

by Alex on Apr 8 2014 20:30

Very friendly and helpful staff, rooms warm and very comfortable. Bathroom with bath and walk in shower , and selection of toiletries, breakfast was a very good selection. Prices very reasonable in the bar considering it's a hotel, pleasantly surprised, and if your at a wedding here the food is very very good, and plenty of it. Would definitely return

by Audrey on Mar 24 2014 10:43

Hotel was really nice staff were very friendly and helpful.

by Conor on Mar 20 2014 06:52

Room was spacious, however dated. One of the bathrooms could not be used due to a broken shower door, however this was only advised to us a few hours after our arrival by housekeeping. There was also a foul smell throughout the room and we bought scented candles to mask the smell for the duration of our stay. Food was fine. Overall, disappointed.

by DON on Feb 26 2014 11:01

Very good hotel, room was clean large & spacious, good dining and helpful staff plus free secure overnight parking

by DJ on Jan 30 2014 11:57

Hotel is lovely. Reception staff were very busy and hence it wasnt as welcoming as we hoped for. However the restaurante staff made up for it. They were so helpful and friendly. We had ordered a bottle of wine and on our last glass my husband knocked his glass and spilled the remainder so the staff replaced it with a full glass on the house... Food excellent. Rooms big and nicely decorated

by sophie on Jan 2 2014 19:48

Excellent great value, no frills. We stayed one night in the Bracken Court Hotel. It was clean, comfortable and convenient to Dublin's northside. Great chief, provided lovely breakfast and evening meal for us. Friendly & helpful staff. Free parking Great selection of shops in pavilions shopping centre close by.

I was very impressed with this hotel the check was done in minets for eight of us. Our rooms were bigger than average.the staff were very friendly and helpful . Rooms were spotless beds very comfy the food is of a very high standard and again staff in the restaurant very friendly. I would have no problem recommending this hotel to everyone I don't think you would find fault.

by Mary Caldwell on Jun 20 2013 14:17

Hotel easy to find, ample parking (free). Check in was faultless, room was clean. Dinner was beautiful and breakfast was great. All staff were lovely and we had a great stay.

by fred on May 1 2013 11:25

lovely hotel,spotlessly clean,diner was great and all the staff we had dealings with were really nice, will use again

by Rosaleen Murphy on Apr 30 2013 10:56

Really enjoyed our stay in the hotel. Rooms were a great size and the dinner was very good. Breakfast was just ok. The only grip I would have is that a twin & triple room were booked so we expected single beds & got 2 double beds. However it was a very enjoyable night & staff were very friendly & courteous. Would definitely stay there again....

by Family man on Mar 5 2013 13:42

All round very good value for money. Food and all staff were great.

by Eilis on Feb 26 2013 18:43

WOW what can I say! we had a fantastic stay in the Bracken Court, there were 4 ladies ranging in age from 23 to 80 and all of us were so pleased with the level of service from the staff at reception to the bedrooms( 2 twin rooms) which were so roomy and spacious and spotless, to the food which was superb. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough and it is so accessible to Dublin if you want shopping and it is also right beside the sea.

by D on Jan 8 2013 10:54

In my opinion, this hotel doesn't qualify as a 4 stat hotel!! We were very disappointed with our stay here. Cleanness of our room was terrible. Our room was very very small. The tv in our room didn't work, none of the stations worked. We reported this to reception and nothing was done. However the food here was very nice. There was a nice selection for breakfast. The bar staff were very friendly.

My partner and I stayed in your hotel Friday night. We really enjoyed it. The staff were lovely and the food in the restaurant was excellent. I have told all my work colleagues about our experience and many will be booking very soon. I would definitely be returning in the future. Many thanks for an enjoyable stay and hope to see you soon.

From the moment we walked into Reception and were greeted with a warm welcome, to the beautiful room we stayed in, the comfort of the bar/lounge area, the delicious dinner in the restaurant, we knew we had made the right choice staying here. The staff could not do enough for you or be friendlier. We got breakfast to the room and it arrived on time, piping hot and exactly what we ordered. The room was immaculate and very comfortable with a large bathroom. Our only regret was that we did not book two nights! Will definitely be back, 5 star treatment at a budget price. October 2011.

by Sinead on Sep 13 2011 10:01

Stayed in hotel for one night as we were at a wedding there. Lovely hotel, staff very friendly, very clean, and delicious breakfast delivered to our room the next morning. Would recommend it and stay again in the future.

by Gerry on Aug 28 2011 08:23

Had a lovely 3 nights, the hotel was lovely and the breakfast was great. The staff were very friendly. No parking fee for the car. There is a bit of road noise from the road, but that can't be helped as the hotel is on the main street. Is is a great base to explore Dublin, and the northern towns. I will stay there again.

by Peter on Mar 28 2011 11:32
