This hotel is a great property for the price... convenient location if you don't have a car and the view is amazing. The staff was extremely helpful in all aspects. The room was clean and comfortable and well equipped. I would have given 5 stars if there was internet in the room.

Good location, nice views from the hotel. Close to the cliff walk The rooms are comfy but a tad bit dated. Bed was nice and comfy. There is limited parking in the hotel. It does however have a nice charm.

We booked two nights at the Esplanade hotel ,the staff were friendly & helpful ,location is perfect for walking along Bray promenade and also the stunning cliff walk . But we found the hotel itself rather tired ,it might have been a better option to bokk during Spring or Summer

A lovely seaside town. The hotel was very comfortable and warm. The bar was a bit empty but never mind. We had a lovely night and popped to a few other places. The staff were friendly and helpful. Thank you.

We payed almost 3 times as much for 2 rooms, on this occasion, as we did 2 months previously. ( law of supply and demand ! ) The hotel is clean and the rooms are ok. Awoken on both nights, by the fire alarm going off, in the middle of the night . And no explanation or apology from reception!...

I stayed two nights here recently on business. I have stayed here before and I have not had any major issue. If you are looking for a luxurious hotel, this is perhaps not the ideal place. The accommodation is fine but a little dated. Although I did not have breakfast on this visit, I have in the past and it...

We were really looking forward to our night away, the room we got could really do with a good clean, as you can see in the pictures, there were hairs in the bed, stains on the carpet, soap dispenser was black, and views one word-disappointing. I was looking forward to the sea front and we got the dart!

Vintage does not mean old. This not one where you will get the wrong room because one hallway looks the same as the other. Hotel has been around for a long time but it has maintained it's charm. People treat you like people, smooth stay with no problems. Quaint and charming in every way and great location.
