We booked an apartment for 4 adults. I expected that this would be a 2 bedroomed apartment. What we got was a one bedroom apartment with 2 single beds stuck in the sitting room. The apartment was on the ground floor at the side of the hotel on a public road opposite an Indian take away. The main door from the street into the lobby of the apartment block did not lock at any point during our stay, so anyone could just walk in and out as they pleased. The lobby area itself was filthy - dirt and debris all over the grubby carpet and huge laundry bins full of soiled laundry were there from the time we arrived until the time we left. Upon opening the door of the apartment, the first thing that hit us was the stench of stale smoke, despite it being a non-smoking apartment. The floor in the wet-room-style bathroom was extremely grubby looking too, a good soaking with a bottle of bleach wouldn't go astray. One of the first things that struck us when we entered the bedroom of the apartment was that even though it was a ground floor apartment, there were only net curtains on the windows!This was the same in the sitting room where the two single beds were. While this provided a thin opaque veil of privacy from fleeting passers-by during the day, it did not serve to block out any light at all glaring in from the street lights and the take away opposite during the night. While we did go to Bray to enjoy the nightlife, it would have been nice, if ,when we went to bed, we did not have to continue to be subjected to the nightlife until around 6am with droves of loud passer's-by sitting on the window sills of the bedroom and sitting room whilst tucking in to their Indian takeaway, shouting and banging off the windows. We finally managed to get to sleep, only to be rudely awoken at 8am by the bottle bins from the main hotel bar and nightclub being repeatedly dragged from the alley past our windows for collection...this went on for over an hour. Eventually, we managed to settle
