Beautiful hotel, very helpful staff, very clean. Dinner in Bistro was gorgeous. Very disappointed with breakfast as the full irish was cold and the sausages had a very bad after taste.

I recently spent one night at the city west hotel in Dublin. While the water shortages were an issue in Dublin we did travel regardless!!!!!However, the following morning the fact that our shower did not work and the toilets didn't flush did not at all add to our enjoyment. Together with this, the fifth floor, where we were allocated rooms, was freezing. Our room itself was very cold and I failed to regulate the temperature even though there was a thermostat in the room Perhaps it didn't work. ? Also, the awful noise coming from the roof resulted in neither myself or my husband getting a wink of sleep for the entire night. I did phone reception but to no avail. One manager said it was a boiler, which I doubt and the following morning another manager stated it was part of the roof which had been blown about by the wind, All in all, it was a very uncomfortable experience. I would not look forward to going there again and certainly not sleeping on the fifth floor. A pity that this is my report on my first experience. If it was a good experience I would certainly report that too. Thank you.

**** we stayed here for a concert in the Avivia stadium, found the hotel staff excellent, rooms were spotless with lovely toiletries provided. (brought my own but used theirs), food was lovely, had bistro food on the Friday evening, breakfast was very good and staff were lovely getting anything you needed without having to chase it, but hot foof was cool (had fry but too cool to eat) other than that brilliant and would definitely stay again, luas is only a few mins walk to stop, but city centre around half hour on the luas.

Room was lovely .. the hotel was exceptionally busy last weekend as there was an Irish Dancing competition being held. However, our room was nice and quiet. Breakfast was delicious - a good selection of fruits/cereals and fry up! The leisure centre was lovely .. warm swimming pool and seperate jacuzzi's etc in changing rooms - however, these are communal on weekends ..

We stayed in a superior room. The bed was huge, nice big bathroom and comfortable room. The staff mostly were very friendly (except for some of the breakfast waitresses). What I noticed though, is that there were a lot of little details were very poor. Broken toilet flusher, broken tiles, grouting all over the floor in the bathroom, tv not working properly, toilet paper like sandpaper, room too warm during the night and difficult to adjust, broken faucet on the sink. No WiFi in the room (2013 - seriously?). For breakfast you get plenty of choice, but the hot food is not great and tasteless. Overall you get the feeling they could do with paying more attention to detail, and stop cutting corners. Overall I would still recommend a stay here. The room was very reasonably priced and comfortable overall nice hotel.

Lovely hotel, very comfortable room. It was extremely busy on Saturday night but the staff were well able to look after everyone. We had food in the Bistro which was very good and breakfast was also great considering the number of people they were catering for. The hotel is only about 15 minutes from Dublin so its a very good location. Would definitely stay again.

Staff and hotel were nice. However, there was a surprise when we realised that the leisure centre is not unisex - men and women have separate areas.

Very friendly staff, stayed with my girlfriend for one night and will definitely be back to the CItywest resort if staying in the Dublin area again in the near future. Luas stop right beside the hotel so access to the city centre is very easy for a days excursion, so you can leave your car at the hotel. Highly recommendable hotel

What a beautiful hotel..i don't think i have ever stayed in a hotel where the staff were so friendly and i mean every single person we came in contact with were so friendly, nice and helpful. The rooms were grand and spacious and spotless. The food was lovely, only down side was the price of drink but i suppose it's the same all over dublin

Great night stayed at the Citywest Hotel. It is a busy hotel but it did not disrupt our stay. When we arrived we were upgraded to another room and it was lovely. Newly decorated and very big. Ideal as we had a travel cot for our son in the room. He was undisturbed with the TV. It is a big hotel and our room was a good walk from reception but that did not bother us, as we knew that we would not be disturbed late into the night. Breakfast can be busy, we got there just in time so did not have to queue but others did have. A nice selection and good quality. The restaurant was nice, we did not have reservations but were seated straight away. The only downsides I would see to this hotel are - the pool is VERY busy andI had booked it on the basis of WIFI in the hotel. WIFI is only in the public areas. Would return and great value for money.

i stayed here on the 8th and 9th of october 2012 with my wife and 2 children,the kids enjoyed their stay with a games room and leisure area with a swimming pool keeping them busy.a game of golf on the on site golf course went down very well also.eating at the restaurant is amost, and afterwards washing down the food with a nice pint of Guinness in the Bar,this goes down a treat,the breakfast service in the morning is one to look forward too,with the staff greeting you with a warm welcome the hotel is only a 5 minute walk to the nearest Luas station that takes you right into the heart of Dublin,we have stayed here on a few occasions and will continue to do so in the near future.

We booked this hotel for two friends who were badly in need of a break. They were delighted with the accommodation and the food was excellent. They also spoke highly of the staff who were very helpful to them. They would highly recommend it to their friends and would give it a higher rating than 5* above. D Walsh

Gorgeous hotel on the outskirts of Dublin, golf club, pool, gym, it's got everything. Rooms are lovely. Staff are fab. 10 minutes walk to the Luas Redline was perfect for us to get to a concert in the O2 Arena and back, and it was on the Cork side of Dublin for our journey home. Will definitely stay there again.

Hi stayed in the city west for only one night. The rooms are very big but they were not that clean the bed linen was stained so were the pillow cases , there was sweets stuck into the floor. Dont get me wrong everything else was lovely the grounds were beautiful. The breakfast was fab lots of everything and as much as you want . There was only one other thing that bothered me was they said the lus was only 5 min walk more like 10-15 and i would not advise any women to do it on there own as it is a very dark walk.

stayed here for a couple of days relaxation , my room was beautiful, though i had to walk nearly amile of corriedor to reach it, however it was well worth the walk it was a beautifully decorated superior room in a quiet paart of the hotel, perfect for a guest wanting peace and quiet yes, it was holiday time and there were alot of children ate in the hotel reataurnat the first night but found it very busy and child friendly the second ight i booked a table at Lemongrass,on the hotel gounds 2 minutes walk. i had a beautiful meal, child free and the staff were very attentive and the food and wine was great. will be back again would reccomend this hotel, but not at busy periods.

Room and Staff lovely, accommodated all 5 in one room which was great. Swimming and play room was good fun for the kids. Check out is a little early at 11am when trying to fit in a quick swim before leaving. Would recommend it to anyone. Only downfall could do with air conditioning but then I guess you pay a lot more for that, and they do have some. would stay again

Hotel was nice and clean, very big and took us a while to find our room. Staff helpful and friendly. Food was ok. Very good location, took about 20 mins to drive to Zoo.

Hiya! The hotel itself is fab. It's lovely how it is right on the outskirts of Dublin but the luas can be got the whole way in to O' Connell street and back. The food is also lovely for both dinner and breakfast. . The only thing i can complain about is it was so warm in the rooms. I wonder would it cost much to set up a van in the rooms also we were not able to leave on a night lilght for my son without leaving on the big light near the bathroom as they were all connected. Would still stay there again though, it was so conveinet.

The hotel was nice and the staff extremely friendly. However, on the weekend we were there the rooms were unbearably warm making it difficult to sleep especially when we had small children with us.

Stayed here for the handball competition, Easy to find. Excellent set up in sports arena. Rooms lovely except for the constant hummm ( boiler or air conditioner units) outside the window. Carvery excellent and reasonably priced, Breakfast also excellent except on the last day asked 3 members of staff for a pot of tea-the first told me sit down, the second said ok and the third just looked at me. Waited 20 minutes, still no tea!!! Otherwise I would recommend this hotel highly. Written by Handball Fan

Thanks, Citywest, we had a wonderful stay, although it was short and sweet (1 night), don't worry, we'll be back. Loved the swimming pool and jacuzzi area. The bedroom was lovely, bit of a trek to get there but worth it! Dining room was a bit dreary but food was really good. Tks

Enjoyed our stay over a very busy Dublin weekend with Bloom, formula l car racing and the Mini Marthon. For such a large hotel everything seemed to run smoothly. The check in was quick and efficient and everyone most helpful. Although very busy the breakfast was efficient and no waiting and the dinner was tasty and again no waiting. The room was lovely with really comfortable beds and quite soundproof Very luxurious. Only one comment the website said only 2o mins from Dublin city centre. We went by ;public transport and it took a lot longer nearly 1hr and 10 mins. Probably not a problem if you go by car and maybe a quieter time!

Hotel is lovely. We attended the Irish National Dancing Championships so the hotel was very busy. We checked in on the Thursday eve and staff were very efficient but lacked a little personality. The room was on the 3rd floor and we had to walk for ages to get to it once we got off the lift. THe room itself was quite spacious and the bathroom was spotless. There carpet on the floor needs to be changed - there was a big black stain on the foor which took from the room and could have done with a good hovering. Our TV was not working - we rang reception at 9.00pm and was told somebody would be up to fix it in 5 mins - still havent seen the repair man yet - i spoke to reception every day we stayed there and no one came to fix it - I was not amused considering i had an 11 year old me!!. Breakfast was very good considering they had 1400 people for breakfast on Friday morning. Hotel well able to cope with the crowd. We ate in the bistro - Service was slow but food was good. I had to change room key on Saturday and was told i had not paid for my rooms even though i had my receipt and had paid upfront when checked in. Was not impressed but overall we enjoyed our stay there.

We spent two nights at the hotel for a mid-week family break. The reception area was well staffed so check-in was speedy. Despite booking a Family room the room itself was a double room, this was clear because the room had two fixed headboards the room and the third bed was sort of shoved into the corner! So for a family room it was quite small, for a double room it was large. On arrival we had to call housekeeping as there was crushed biscuit on the carpet, obviously housekeeping didn't do a thorough clean because once the beds were moved around to accommodate the extra bed we found it. Anyway it was sorted out straight away. Cleanliness overall however was of a high standard. We ate in the bistro one evening and it was fine, portions were a bit small but food was tasty. Service was also very good in the bistro, the waiter was pleasant and efficient. The Guinness was excellent too, which can't always be said for hotels unfortunately. The leisure centre was very good, lovely pool and well maintained facilities. It was nice and quiet too during the day, the kids loved it. On the second night we ate at the Lemongrass restaurant, excellent food. In summary we enjoyed our time at the hotel and given the price we paid for a 2 night mid-week stay we would definitely consider returning in the future.

Arrived at hotel before 11am and was able to check in immediate as our room was ready - check in was quick & efficient and the receptionist was very nice and pleasant advising of restaurants, breakfast times etc. We booked a family room which was a good size with one double and two single beds, tea/coffee facilities etc very comfortable throughout. Breakfast was buffet style which was great and checkout next morning was express which was extremely handy. Overall very impressed and will return for another visit.

A massive hotel (750 plus rooms) but it copes well We stayed whilst dance competitions, weddings, golf and a Star Wars convention was on (around the the May4th, yes) Family rooms were a good size and clean, food was good (service struggled at times though) but reception and especially the concierge, were excellent. One tip - the Luas tram line is a 15 minute walk from the hotel lobby, so whilst it is the best way to get to Dublin Centre (45 mins) it is not 'right there' as it infers

the hotel was lovely staff also'.rooms were excellent as was the breakfast.the only hiccup was the chambermaid came into our room at 09.30 whilst we still in bed to change the room,i thought they would have a list of who was checking out or staying for another night.other than that no faults

This hotel was terrible. It is very run down. It is very large and noisy with people making noise in the middle of the night (6am) apparently intoxicated. This kept us and our child awake. Our TV was broken in our room but to be fair a guy came quickly to repair it. Breakfast was very poor with rooms packed with people, food was 2 star quality. Not enough staff. Pool was passable for a 4yr old to enjoy. We would never dream of staying here again and would not recommend it

In the past month we have had a small gathering of family on two different occasions for different celebrations and found the staff to be most accommodating. Food is wonderful and the atmosphere and live music in the bar made our experience most delightful. Great value for money!! Should really consider putting in a small coffee doc in the leisure center near pool

Lovely hotel, large and beautiful grounds with golf course. Room was adequate and had everything we needed. The staff were courteous and helpful. I fully recommend it.
 
 
 
 
 

by Virginia on Apr 18 2012 10:37

Really nice hotel. Beds very comfortable and had a great sleep. However, hotel says that Luas is at the gate - this is misleading. There is a long avenue to get to the gate and then it is a further 5-10 minute walk. This is fine if you aren't in a rush. Didn't like breakfast and felt that we were in the way - we were 15mins before the end of breakfast but we felt that we had been late.

Very enjoyable stay, staff very helpful and welcoming. Grounds were lovely, ideally situated for stay in Dublin without the hassles of the city, yet very easily accessable to city via the Luas near the hotel. Very happy with rooms, food, service etc. Definitely recommend Lime Beauty Rooms! Would definitely stay again

Fabulous location at the foot of the Dublin mountains yet the city is conveniently accessible by Luas or bus. The staff are friendly, helpful and welcoming. Only stayed one night again this time but I ll be back!

The only good things about this hotel are the swimming pool and jimmy Fitzgerald who works in the breakfast room. When I booked the hotel and saw it was a country house hotel I thought it would be a nice quiet hotel with plenty of areas outside to relax with the kids. I couldn't have been more wrong. The hotel was huge and with 774 rooms it was packed. The noise in the public areas was incredible and more like grand central station then a country house hotel. When I asked where we could go for a walk with the children we were told there was only a gravel covered car park we could use. All the green areas around the hotel were the golf course. On the Saturday morning we had a nice breakfast and we're greeted at the door by jimmy Fitzgerald who really was the only staff member who wanted guests to feel welcome. The other staff were on a "get them in, get them out" mode. On Sunday morning at 4am we were awoken by people shouting in the corridors. I phoned to deception and it took two calls for them to send up someone. The noise went on for nearly an hour. Finally at 5am we got back asleep. As we had to leave early on the Sunday morning I requested a wake up call for 7am. As the clocks were going forward I felt that I couldn't trust my phone alarm. we never received our wake up call and slept in till 8am. This made us very late. Again it was jimmy Fitzgerald who came to our aid. He helped organise a take away breakfast for the kids so that we could get on the road asap. I would not recommend this hotel if you are looking for a nice relaxing break.

We had a very enjoyable weekend in Dublin. Citywest hotel has a fantastc leisure centre offering separate jacussi, sauna and steam rooms for male and females. The centre was clean, pool warm and had 2 swimming lanes. The food was good and the serving staff were friendly and efficient. If I had any complaints it would be the bar area on Saturday night was noisy and had a group of unruly individuals occuping an area in it. Bouncers could be seen walking around. It would be better if a smoking area was available to clients away from the front door of the hotel. Overall we had a nice time and it was great value for a 2 night stay. ***

Hotel was nice,but we got room no.1800 on ground floor.Room was for smokers, cold (heating does not work), dark,stinky and opposite to lift and emergency door.From my room window I had view for car tyres because room was below ground level like some basement.So we had to complain but staff was friendly and we moved to another room which was perfect.
