Ok not great but not terrible

Posted Apr 14, 2012
Our stay for 2 adults and 2 children was in one of the garden suites (room415), disappointed in the rooms - one room was clearly for disabled visitors with an adapted ensuite bathroom. I fully appreciate the need for hotels to supply this type of room but a shower head that will not go higher than 5 feet above the floor level is no good to a 6ft tall man. This bathroom also had cobwebs hanging from one of the walls and whilst not dirty had a tired feel and definitely not sparkling. The same just ok quality applied to the other rooms - they really need a good deep clean and redecoration. The sofas in the living room area are particularly uncomfortable, TVs are small and gave a poor selection of channels. We ate for one evening meal in the bar; quality of the food wasn't great - just a standard burger and chips but service was good. However it was very expensive - over 100 euro for 2 courses for 4 people with only 1 glass of wine and 1 pint of beer is excessive. Needless to say we didn't eat there the second night. Overall the phrase 'just ok' sums the whole place up, if returning to the Limerick area we will choose a different hotel.

Wonderful hotel!

Great hotel - lovely setting. Great bar that offered to stay open as long as they had customers (we had arrived late and were hungry and thirsty). Very helpful staff too!

Okay for an overnight business stay, not sure about any longer.

The hotel itself is very charming, beautiful views over the lough, and well decorated inside. The reception staff were very friendly, and the room was comfortable (although a lot of the decor was tired). The plumbing, however, was a nightmare. The noise of the toilet, the shower, the sink not only in the room I was staying in, but next door as well, was unbelievable, and since the guests in the room next door had an early morning, there was no hope of a lie in for me due to the loud rumbling and squealing from the pipes. The breakfast and the morning service staff were all very good, but I'm not sure that any more than one night with the noise would be bearable. Expedia lists this as a 4* hotel on their site - its not, its 3* (so bear this in mind when making your booking)

Charming with tolerable glitches

Posted Oct 30, 2004
Charming hotel; good central location for touring the west coast of Ireland by rental car (County Clare?s Cliffs of Mohr to the NW and the Dingle Peninsula to the SW. 45 minutes door to door from the Shannon airport. Hotel is located in a country-club type neighborhood on the banks of the Shannon River. Glitch #1: We were hoping to avoid the city of Limerick, however, we seemed to drive through the city every day en-route to our destinations. We stayed in the newer suites that included two rooms, two baths, and a living and dining area. Very spacious and clean. Glitch #2: They only heat hot water once a day, so they say, so taking hot showers after a day of traveling and again in the morning was quite complicated. But the staff was quick to help with rescheduling the hot water heater. Had nice view of the river. The hotel bar provided tasty dinners and atmosphere was enjoyable. Find Finnegans Pub at the main round-about near the hotel. Yummy, traditional, fast and about the only place nearby for dinner. (Dublin is a two and a half hour drive on the N7)

Spitzen Frühstück

Posted Nov 5, 2008
Nettes Hotel etwas auserhalb, dadurch schön ruhig. Schönes enlisches Frühstück, netter Service. Einziges Manko ist der renovierngsbedürftige Wellnesbereich im Fittnessclub gegenüber.
