“Clean and Comfortable”
Reviewed 2 December 2011

I think some people expect too much for the price, At €39 per night, It's cheaper than a travelodge!, It was basic but functional.

The staff were always friendly and helpful with a smile and warm welcome, They allowed us to leave our luggage as we had a late flight on our departure day, We left our bags from 10am - 6pm with no problems,

The room was clean, comfortable and tidy, The bathroom decor was a bit tired and could do with refurbishing however the water was hot, The main room window was slightly drafty however the thick lined curtains and radiator kept the room toasty,

There could have been more channel choice on the TV however the use of the Free Wifi was a fantastic bonus.

All in all a comfortable stay for a good price, close to the centre of Dublin,

I feel no need to complain about our experience, Yes i've stayed in better hotels but they've come with a hefty price tag, If you're looking for a no frills, comfortable room, Choose the Charleville Lodge.

Sorry to have to say that the people there are not professional at all...
We had a reservation that was cancelled by e-mail 1 hour before our arrival because of a pipe problem (they said). They could have called us, they had our mobile number.
Furthermore people arriving after us got rooms. We think they relocated us because we only booked 1 night...
We were relocated in another guest house, that was further away from the city center, in a really small room where you could hear every noise from the street, whereas we booked a quiet room.
The money they gave us for the taxi was not even enough to pay the relocation...

Me and my girlfriend have been to Charleville Lodge from 13th to 16th November 2011 and we really enjoyed our stay. Our room had a TV, hairdryer and there was a WiFi Connection for free. Everything appeared really clean. The staff was very friendly. From the hotel to the city centre it’s about 15 minutes by bus. One of the few disadvantages was the hospital near the hotel. We often heard ambulances passing by. Otherwise it was very quiet around the hotel.

We were very disappointed when we arrived to our room. There were open electrical boxes with exposed wires, the room was so small it was impossible to get around the bed. The toilet and sink are so close that it is impossible to use without hitting your knees on the sink, I am only 5 feet two inches tall!!!! An access panel in the bathroom was open and not sure what was "living in there". The facility itself was lacking; TV out of order, coffee and tea for a fee and the dining room was filthy. The breakfast was terrible, cold beans, poorly cooked eggs and over cooked meats. We couldn't wait to get out of there and thankfully all our other experiences in Ireland were wonderful and as described.

Room Tip: Don't!!!!!!!!!

I came here with my boyfriend for my 18th birthday, having found it online! My boyfriend and I had both studied hospitality and catering at college, he works as a chef and I am a supervisor at a hotel, so when we see a 4 star hotel, we expect 4 star service, rooms and food! Not what we recieved.

When we got to the hotel, after flying in, and getting a taxi there, we were told that we couldn't check in until 3, which we both understood, so we sat in a lobby waiting to check in, not once were we offered a drink, or anything.

When we eventually got into the room, I was so disappointed, the bathroom was so dirty, the skirting boards were hanging off the walls in the room, the tv had no signal, was really fuzzy, and the sheets were 'bobbly' for want of a better word.

We went to sleep after a long day of traveling, then when we got up in the morning we went to breakfast. It was a nightmare! This is an example of the breakfast we had on the 2nd day.

We got in to the breakfast room at 8:15 sat down and waited until 8:40 to be spoken to. We ordered our breakfast, having been told the previous day that in Ireland you have to ask if you want your eggs 'hard or soft' so obviously we asked for soft poached eggs. 30 mins later, when we got our 2 star breakfast, one of my boyfriends eggs was raw the other was rock hard! We sent it back, having been told by management to complain at the time- the 'chef' who was also the 'housekeeper' came out to the restaurant, and clearly shouted at my boyfriend saying if he wants his eggs don't so specifically to go and cook them himself!

The couple sat next to us in the room were shocked at what had just happened, but they also didn't escape the problems, the man had his breakfast 25 mins after the woman got hers!

For the amount of money- I'd say steer clear! I could say so much more about our awful experice-
Like the fact that it's not in the city centre its about a 30 min walk.
And that the staff don't speak English, so you have to wait for days to speak to management about an issue
And that we had to pay €1 everytime we wanted hot water, because there were no tea and coffee making facilities
The 'free wi-fi' didn't work
The water from the taps was brown
The place really doesn't deserve 4* and don't know how they got them in the first place!!
