Esplanade Hotel Bray, Bray
Very nice location on the seashore in Bray.. The hotel is an older building and and that was apparent in our room and especially the bathroom. The WiFi was NOT very good.. Overall it was adequate.. the view of the sea was wonderful and the DART station to catch a train into Dublin was only about a :10-:12 minute walk from the hotel.

The hotel is in a great location directly across from the promenade and on a strip with restaurants and bars for entertainment. My friend and I had a lovely stay, the room we were in was quiet, clean and comfortable. Would definitely go back.

Great time amid faded glory
The Esplanade was our first stay after coming in from Chicago. We visited friends and took long walks on the sea front. Had a great time. The hotel is beautiful but has the aura of faded glory. Food was good, but not great. The view was nice out our window but the roof had moss and dandelions growing and there was an old ladder that had been there for a long time and was not functional. There was a great atmosphere amid the mirrors and woodwork, but one mirror was broken and needed to be repaired. The front desk was friendly and accommodative. Need better Wi-fi so that you can use your computer in the room. Altho I went down to the common area early in the morning and saw a gorgeous sunrise while using my computer.

What a lovely stay!
We weren't too sure about this hotel, but once we arrived, we were so satisfied with our choice! Parking is off the street, the property is well-kept, especially for such an old building. Location is great, we highly recommend the walk along the beach and up and around Bray Head. Lovely views. Walking distance from local restaurants and take-away joints. Room was lovely, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious! Wi-Fi was decent. Will definitely stay here again!
