Located 5/7 walk from O'Connell st and King Johns Castle this is an ideal location. Limited parking on site (more 2min walk). The hotel is sited beside the shannon. Lovely views of river and part of city and Clare hills from 4th floor. Look for rooms not overlooking the busy road. The food Breakfast and dinner was good value and...

Firstly I have never written a poor review for a hotel before and I travel very regularly. Just got back from a stay at this hotel. First impressions were fantastic- we had paid for a river view and our 2 rooms on the 5th floor did not disappoint. They were very large for standard rooms and well- furnished. However, on...

First off Sorry. I really am disappointed we impacted your stay so much. This is the exact opposite of what a hotel should do and I accept that. Im really disappointed to see that your experience with us regarding the spiders caused you to write your first poor review. It is clear that there were spiders outside the window on...

I enjoyed our stay here. Very nice hotel. Rooms were very large and we had a nice view of the river. Bar area was very nice. Nice dining room. Small gym. Food was pretty good. I would stay here again.

this has been a wonderful surprise: nice hotel, very spacious rooms and bathrooms (italian style showers)...very nice staff, perfect breakfast...we really enjoyed our stay here: furthermore we did get a free parking place in the hotel parking which gives you direct access to the hotel lobby..and it wasn't very expensive ....

The property was nice. Service was lacking, parking was difficult and the locals got a bit lippy in the bar. So first our room, smartly laid out suite with a balcony overlooking the river. There was no one to assist with bags and the receptionist was not to excited about greeting us. There is a gated parking garage but it...

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left everything was perfect! Spa, rooms and food. Lovely place with very nice staff. We booked a deal with few extras and vouchers for everything we're attached to our case for cards to our room which was very convenient, they clearly stated what we are entitled to as a part of...

Beautiful spacious rooms, comfortable beds, perfect temperature from the Air Con, secure underground parking, spotlessly clean and lovely staff, what more can a hotel give you? Ideally situated for sight seeing and within easy reach or Thomond Park for sports fans.

I was a little apprehensive on approach to the hotel as I was unsure of the parking situation so therefore I was totally unprepared for the entry to the hotel, which was just beautiful.
