Room is small and stuffy. Windows face another wall in the hotel. Staff is unpleasant. No water bottles in room. No fridge. Not a 4 star by a long shot! I would look elsewhere.

I enjoyed the atmosphere and the service was great both at the bar and restaurant. The view of the water was beautiful and its at the perfect location. The swimming pool was great especially for the kids that came with us. The only thing that disappointed me was the room that we stayed in was quite small and it was difficult for me and my boyfriend to move about. The bathroom was also very small and had no bath, the shower was tiny, i had to move sideways to get into it.

Solid hotel. The room seemed a bit dated. And, I don't mean "classical decor"; I think it's time for a refresh. The view from room 203 was stellar. Dessert in the bar was fantastic.

We went there for a very special Birthday and quite frankly we wished we hadn't. We expected a lot more from a hotel this good. We arrived and weren't directed to a seat. We ended up in a dingy lit room without a window to its name! So much for a beautiful view of the estuary! It ended up it was a carvery. I'm not a fan of carverys but this one was particularly poor. Very small selection of dishes. Unless you like roasted meats there is very little choice. The only options available was roast beef, ham or turkey, salmon, chicken supreme, cold quiches or salads. There was no vegetarian option. The carvery servers were short and dismissive. I decided on the quiche and it was actually self service for cold foods. When I asked for chips and the server told me dismissively that they'd none ready it would be 5 minutes. My sister ordered the salmon she was told it would be 10 minutes. We went to pay. The cashier got confused taking payment for 7 dinners, desserts and drinks. There was 3 staff standing behind him talking who were meant to be taking drink orders. When I asked could I get drinks I was looked at then they returned to their conversation! Eventually a supervisor came and took our payment and we ordered drinks from him, he was very nice and helpful and said he would get them dropped down to the table. We found a table and sat down, there were children running around the tables unsupervised. It took 10 minutes for my chips to come and 20 minutes for my sister's salmon. My Mum asked a waitress for some water for the table and she pointed over to an area and said water is over there then she seen my mum's walking frame and said oh I'll get it for you. She arrived back at the table with a tiny jug and two small tumblers. When our food plates were cleared away the waitress looked at how much food was left over on our plates, then scurried off actually scurried off in case WE were going to say something. Every other restaurant I have ever been in would have asked straight away was the food not to our liking. In fact one time my sister actually was not that hungry and the waiter asked a few times did she not like it, she coukd order something else free of charge. The drinks finally arrived ten minutes after our food plates were cleared away I would understand if it was tea and coffee but this was soft drinks, wine and sparkling water to drink with our meal. We intended to go into the lobby for tea and coffee as the room lacked any type of ambience. Out of 7 of us only one of us liked our food. Mine was freezing, tasteless and the chips were undercooked. Others said that theirs were either mediocre or tasteless. Not something that you would expect from the Grand. So much for a special 40th birthday celebration! Never again will I go here. I have been in many, many restaurants in hotels, from ordinary three stars to tropical 5 star hotels and I honestly don't think I've ever had such a poor experience. My Mum and her sisters go away every spring and had stayed there once and intended going back there in September for a little break, they have no intentions of doing so now. All in all I believe it is the name that is being traded on. There is even evidence in other areas of the hotel of things starting to go down. The public toilets just off reception are due a facelift, the decor tired and some things in need of repair. This is very sad. Such a beautiful building.

So clean, comfortable, helpful staff, just a drive down from Belfast. We have stayed in the Grand a number of times and have no reason to go anywhere else. Looking forward to staying Thursday /Sunday this week for our son's wedding. Hotel well named "THE GRAND"

DISAPPOINTED!!! :( Me and my partner had a very bad experience in this hotel's Ryan Bar as we were waiting for the food 35 minutes after which the wrong order was brought to us and we had to wait additional 15 minutes. By that time I have decided to cancel the order however the working staff convinced us that it will be taken off the bill. At the end there were major issues with that and their manager Stephen Simpson who is a bully and terrorizing his staff decided to intimidate us by shouting across the venue to cover up for his incompetence and the bad customer service. He was very unpleasant, impolite and you could clearly see that the waiting staff acts nervous around him (things were falling, glasses being dropped, wrong orders made, him raising his voice and being aggressive towards his staff and customers). He thought that he can use this lack of manners to intimidate us. However I am not use to see this kind of hostility and I certainly would not expect that from a four star hotel in Malahide. We have paid the bill but will NEVER go there again because it is not about money but about the experience. Me and my fiance were also looking for a venue as we are getting married and inviting 200 guests from all over the world, Australia and US. and we were thinking of choosing this hotel for our wedding but I could not imagine that somebody like Stephen Simpson Ryan (as he calls himself) would speak like this to one of my guests and insult them. American guests would certainly not feel welcome here as there was one American family siting right next to us and there were unhappy also. They thought that it was unacceptable and that: '"it would be easier to order a pizza then get food at this hotel". We have also mention this incident to the deputy manager at the time, but the way they seem to deal with the issues there is to turn the blind eye on it, as he never got back to us. We are VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH THE GRAND HOTEL MALAHIDE INHOSPITALITY AND BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!! :( And we think that they have a major issues there.

My first time in Dublin and decided to take a trip to Malihide today. The Grand hotel was recommended after speaking to a few people as a lovely place to eat. They were not wrong. Not only have i just had the most beautiful dinner, and compliments to the chef, but the gentleman waiting on me could not do enough to meet my needs. Steven was very attentive, and nothing was a bother to him. His manners were impeccable. He was very proffessional, and i can see an absolute asset to this hotel. Thank you Steven for an enjoyable evening. Will definitely recommend The Grand Hotel to any friends who visit in the future
