The Gresham Hotel has an excellent location but that is about all it has going for it!
I am sure it was a beautiful hotel in its day, but unfortunately it is quite old and looks as though its falling into disrepair!
I stayed here for a shopping weekend in Dublin with my mum a year or so ago, maybe things have improved since then!
But our room was cramped and shabby looking...the bathroom was equally dull. The bath looked disgusting and I think I decided just to go dirty that weekend when I saw the state it was in!
The dining room was a joke, it was like sitting in your grandmothers living room! The breakfast was not good, very poor selection of fruits or anything in the continental part. I know irish hotels tend to focus on the fry up but they also need to cater for other tastes!
We dined there one evening because it was included in the particular package we opted for...I have to admit dinner was alot better than breakfast. All was going well until I heard a loud scream coming from a table full of American guests. The staff were trying to get her to shut up because they also could see what she had seen...a massive spider scuttling across the floor.
