A Dublin landmark hotel which used to be frequented by celebrities, when celebrity meant something. Famous for its afternoon tea. Hidden away, but a fantastic location 10 steps from Dublin's most popular pedestrianized shopping street, Grafton Street, with its cafes, bars, street performers and throngs of tourists. Decent size, clean modern rooms, but nothing to really wow. Nice lobby and bar area. Friendly, efficient service from hotel staff. Onsite restaurant, Wilde, is a different matter.
Decided to have dinner at Wilde Sat for 20 minutes before anyone even came to ask if I would like to order a drink. I did see a few wait staff look at me as if to say I wonder if anyone is looking after that guy, but nobody approached me. After i finally got a waiter to take my order, I ordered a lamb dish as my main course. I did think it odd that I wasn't asked what temperature I would like my lamb cooked - after about ten minutes from taking my order someone had the sense to ask me how I wanted my lamb cooked. The food was good, but the overall experience was let down by shoddy service which is not to be expected in a hotel with this reputation. I would return, but would avoid Wilde.
