"Night in The Spencer"
We arrived at 2pm and Victoria took our bags as check in was 3pm, we went to the bar for lunch and of course I had a few glasses of Prosecco, it was very cosy with the comfortable couches and fire, before we knew it, it was quarter to 4, we went over to Victoria again who is very friendly and very helpful, we went up to the room which was beautiful. We had booked in for a couples massage at 4 so we hurried ourselves down to the Spa, the massage was so relaxing, the place was very clean and relaxing. The girls were so friendly, after our massage we went to the pool, sauna, Jacuzzi etc, we left the spa just after 7 and got ready as we had dinner booked in the hotel for 8.30. the food was delicious, we had our starters, main course and dessert and of course a few more drinks, I stayed on the Prosecco. Everything was perfect, we didn’t budge from the hotel, there was music playing in the bar. it was a most enjoyable evening.
The rooms were beautiful, clean, cosy, coffee machine in the room, iphone docking station, very handy if you forgot your charger, slippers and fluffy dressing gowns. the Shower was clean, and powerful.
We checked out and was met by Victoria again, just as friendly as Saturday. we were parked in the car park which is easy access.
Looking forward to my next visit in March with my sister and friends, would highly recommend this hotel.

"A little bit of Luxury"
I loved my room: modern, stylish furnishings, chic bathroom and conveniences are inc such as iron and hairdryer. Your room card allows access to the upper floors from the lobby, which is a smart security decision, and the lift also takes you down to the carpark. Parking is free for guests.
Breakfast is extra and is well worth the cost with healthy food options and excellent expresso coffee brought to the table.
I used the exercise room twice and had it to myself. The hotel is out of town but if you want to shop in Dundrum shopping centre, which is a massive concern, then this is a hotel to consider. Leopardstown race course is also nearby. I will return.
The only minus for me was some of the staff in the bar and restaurant, who were impersonable and surly. The non-Irish tall man on reception was friendly and professional.

"Very good hotel for money. A little like walking into a display counter from TKMAXX but the rooms are very well appointed. Good staff. Excellent restaurant. Only criticism would be that there is just not enough lighting at the breakfast, you can barely see what you are eating and you cant read a paper. Will reuse."

"Surprise design and comfort in an industrial park"
I was expecting average and this hotel is anything but. The room is well designed and every part of the hotel seems to have unique design features. Comfortable sheets and pillows, great shower and really friendly service. They could do better with breakfast (pretty sure my eggs were powdered or else badly overlooked) although the juice selection and coffee were great,
I will definitely consider staying here again with a very good value for money ratio.

'Last week with couple of friends we went to My Thai Restaurant in Beacon hotel. I'm not a big fan of Thai food, but after dinner I changed my opinion about Thai cuisine. We were nicely greeted by waiter Vijay whom was very nice, pleasant and professional to us all night long. He helped us with the menu and wine.Thank you Vijay. For starters I had grilled shrimp it was mouth-watering, the most delicious starter that I have ever had. For main course I had breast of duck that was superb all I can say is you have try it yourself. I finished my dinner with beautifully presented cheesecake.
Presentation of food, service and restaurant all together the perfect place to enjoy good food and have great time with your friends. I would recommend My Thai Restaurant as great place to dine.'
"Dine Out Stay Out Deal is Fantastic"
I live less than a mile from this hotel and while having lunch there in early December I heard about the Dine Out Stay Out deal. We usually go out for a meal on a weekend night so I booked my wife and myself in for last Friday night and got a babysitter to look after the kids. We stayed in a very modern clean and spacious room, had a fantastic meal, a lie in on Saturday morning followed by a great breakfast....all for €140 plus the cost of an extra bottle of wine and a few beers!! That’s what it would normally cost me for a dinner out and a taxi home in Dublin city! We arrived home on Saturday afternoon very chilled and relaxed. The long journey home took 5 minutes! The staff are very attentive, the bar is very modern and the whole place is very funky.... I'll most definitely use this again. P.S the Monkfish Tempura was the best I’ve ever had.
"Love This Heaven!"
This hotel is super when my partner and I need a break away where we can just chill out and be together!!! The hotel is so close to the Dundrum shopping centre that it's a great girls retreat too! To be honest the baths are my favourite part of the hotel, they are massive and soo deep I just adore it!! The restaurant is UNREAL I got the soft shell crab tempura as a starter and it was honestly the best thing I have ever tasted!!!!
I recently stayed here on the hotels special offer package for the Leopardstown races. We got a warm welcome from Linda on reception who had our transfers ready for us as soon as we were ready. It was a great offer they were doing which included tickets for the races, transfers and B+B. We had dinner in the bar which was delicious and had us wanting more! I also love the seating areas around the reception and bar. The room was very spacious and very comfortable with a nice modern theme. I could not fault this hotel in any way, it has brilliant staff and I cannot wait to return!
"Up To Date, Quiet and Respectful"
I stay here about every six weeks and always enjoy coming back. The food is excellent, the staff friendly and it offers me a quiet environment in which I can work and rest. What more could be asked for? Michael C.
