Stayed here on a "match day" to attend rugby in Thomand Park. Hotel was perfect location for us as it was half way between the city and the stadium. Staff were super friendly and we had our room upgraded for free which was a nice bonus. (Note: We booked directly). Room was really spacious and spotlessly clean. Free parking available...

It is good for conferences and the the likes and dinner and lunch. it has nice views of the river also you can sit outside and have a drink there and the bar staff are nice also. on the down side I think it needs music or something at night its great for a chat though

Thanks for taking the time to give us your review. The view over the river is really beautiful and we are very lucky to have it. Point taken on the music - we have tried but the space is so small its hard to get away if you dont want to hear it! Regards Donnacha Hurley General Manager

There is a reason that this hotel is rated #1 on TripAdvisor, it absolutely lives up to expectations! Check in was a breeze and the guy was so nice, he gave us a map and a brief walk thru of the city and which local attractions were within walking distance from the hotel. The rooms (we had 2) were HUGE!...

This hotel was definitely our favorite - close to a lot of sightseeing and restaurants, the hotel itself has spacious rooms that were hip and comfy. The bar downstairs was friendly good for a drink. The beds were comfy, and everything was extremely clean. We upgraded for a river view room, and really were happy to have it.

Paid for a better room. Room was ok but full of flies. Also balcony is nothing special, not much to see. Food was good. Parking was awkward as only a small car park so if you are not in early you need to park somewhere else. Staff were ok

Sorry to see how disappointed you were with your experience. I accept it’s a shame when expectations are not met. Clearly there should be no issue with flies in a bedroom. I’ve no report of any incident in our logs so I don’t know if it was connected to a window being open as I have been unable to find...

Stayed for a night while visiting Limerick on route to Dingle and what a great stay it was. A real luxurious hotel without the price tag. Lovely comfortable rooms with lots of space and very clean. Staff are friendly and efficient, no issues with check in, parking or any questions. Decent location with a very short walk into the centre...

This hotel is overpriced and isn't 4 star. **** hotels don't have Ikea plastic plants in galvanized buckets on breakfast tables or Ikea fabric on walls! I felt sorry for staff as they seemed stressed. It's not a happy place. It's a reasonable three star. I asked for a quiet room in my booking. I didn't get one. Its a...

From the tone of your review something really annoyed you, or more accurately a multiple of things annoyed you so sorry for that. You’ve made a fairly strong comment on your view of the hotel as not 4 star and that’s very disappointing. Clearly you feel you did not get value for money and I cannot change your perception of...
