              9.6

              The room was very clean and well maintained. The bed was the comfiest I have ever slept in! The location of the hotel was good as we were close enough to walk to Temple bar/shops.

              We were happy with everything about our stay, especially the Airlink bus stopping outside the hotel!

              5.8

              The room was very cramped. Had to climb over the bed to get into one side. Had stayed before and we were very pleased with our stay, however we were very disappointed this time and are very unlikely to stay there again.
