The location of the hotel is amazing,

The location of the hotel is amazing, and the staff were all very helpful. I was concerned staff of a 5* might be a bit snotty, but not at all. I felt the rooms lacked charm somewhat, and could be from any hotel in the world. Having grown up in Ireland, the Shelbourne was always seen as the pinnacle of luxury, and while the rooms were very nice, they were not special enough. Also, I missed tea and coffee facilities. And of far more concern was that £100 per night was taken from my credit card at check-in (so £300) as a preauthorisation for any charges. I've never had more than £50 taken, and that was for the entire stay. Despite checking out nearly 2 days ago, it's still on my card. Reception told me today when I phoned it would take 5 days for the block to be lifted. This isn't good enough and it ruined an otherwise enjoyable stay.

The Shelbourne is a beautiful

The Shelbourne is a beautiful hotel with an excellent city centre location. It was recently refurbished and the room I stayed in was a suite and very comfortable. The decor is traditional. The bar is lively with a welcoming atmosphere and there is a bustle about the hotel which makes it an interesting place to stay. The staff at reception are excellent and very accomodating. My only complaint was that it had no pool and the gym facilities were disappointing.
