€5m investment allows room for improvement
THE family-run Mount Herbert Hotel in Dublin has invested €5m in a major refurbishment and has been rebranded as the Sandymount Hotel.
"We had to look at how our business could be improved to remain competitive," said hotel director John Loughran.
The hotel now has 168 bedrooms, nine conference rooms, a bar, restaurant and more than 60 staff. It had a turnover of €3.3m in 2009.
