Disappointing experience

Very disappointing experience - no room ready at 5.30 pm. We were eventually shown to a small double room. We had requested twin beds. I rang reception. They did respond and did address the problem but by now we were separated from our group. They said that our booking had come through a ' 3rd party who had also booked through a 3rd party' and so they had no record of our booking. I had already shown them my Alpharooms booking voucher. While the problem was sorted my wife and I felt uncomfortable about the whole experience. If you can't rely on your booking - you are left with an uncomfortable feeling.I had spent about 15 uncomfortable minutes at Reception - holding up several other guests while they tried to locate our booking. Disappointing - Pat O Sullivan

The best thing about my stay was...

Unusual and interesting setting.

Disappointing Experience

Havng booked our stay some weeks in advance it was disappointing to present our booking voucher at Reception and to be greeted with a look of confusion. It took about ten minutes of awkward waiting before we were allocated a room. When we went to the room we discovered a smaal room with one double bed. I had specified twin beds in my booking request. I contacted Reception and they did respond promptly and arranged an alternative room which proved satisfactory. They explained that the confusion arose because my booking went through a 'third party which went through another third party and so they had no record of it'. This sounded very sketchy to me and we wondered what may have happened if they did not have any additional room capacity. We were part of a large family christening party and my wife was upset by these events as her family had sensed that something was amiss. The Hotel environment was comfortable and interesting but the whole experience was disappointing. The breakfast on the following morning was quite poor. The orange juice and the fry were not of a good quality. The dining room staff were efficient and pleasant but this was only a consolation. Disappointing.

The best thing about my stay was...

The staff were efficient but the whole experience was disappointing.

My stay in clontarf

Hotel was beautiful from outside in lovely surroundings my only disappointment was in the bar getting something to eat the service was poor had to wait a long time to. ACTH staffs attention to order meal and same when I had to settle bill The older man on reception that night was fantastic offering great travelling advise Why do all hotels not have adequate lighting in bathroom or near a mirror to put makeup on very frustrating

The best thing about my stay was...

The look of the castle
