The Beacon Hotel - A Review


If you have liked my Facebook page, you will know that last weekend I stayed at The Beacon hotel in Sandyford, Dublin. It was my boyfriend's birthday and I thought it'd be a nice treat for him. We were upgraded to a Deluxe King room and it was amazing! Keep reading for an in depth review of this boutique hotel.

As when entered the lobby, having parked in the complimentary carpark, I noticed a gorgeous smell. I asked the member of staff who was checking us in what the smell was, and was told that they had recently installed something into the air-conditioning to make the hotel smell amazing. The room itself was huge, bright and airy, everything I look for in a hotel room. With floor to ceiling windows and white interior, it looked like heaven. 

The bed was so comfy and the pillows were like clouds. The bed in a hotel room is the make or break thing for me, and the bed in this room was fantastic. There was also a mini fridge in the room filled with crisps, chocolate and drinks. 

One of my favourite things about this room was definitely the bathroom. With a glass sliding door and one of the biggest baths I've ever seen and a rainfall shower, I was instantly in love! Most hotels have very small bathrooms, and most of the time the shower and bath are combined so I really liked that they were separate in this room.

Usually in hotels I don't use the complimentary toiletries. I always bring my own shampoo and shower gel as the ones the hotel usually provides aren't the best. However this time I was pleasantly surprised. In the bathroom there was shampoo, shower gel and body lotion that smelt absolutely divine and the shampoo didn't leave my hair feeling dry. 

The room didn't have the brightest lighting but then again it didn't really need it thanks to the large floor to ceiling windows and the abundance of mirrors. I particularly liked the mirrored wall behind the bath, perfect for taking outfit selfies!

Another of my favourite things about The Beacon hotel is the breakfast. Most hotels I've been to just offer one option for breakfast, a 'full Irish' with some toast and cereal, but in The Beacon there were lots of different options to chose from. I went for the American pancakes while my boyfriend went for the full Irish. There was an assortment of pastries and cereals to choose from as well as granola, yoghurt, fresh fruit and smoothies. I was very impressed. 

Overall, I absolutely loved this hotel and will definitely stay here again. With just a ten minute walk to the nearest Luas stop, which is only one stop away from Dundrum shopping centre, this hotel is perfect for a weekend up in the capital. 

I hope you enjoyed this post, thanks so much for reading!
