This hotel is what all 4 Star hotels should strive to be. The room had everything and more of what you needed--love all the windows. It was sleek and stylish. The restaurant was wonderful along with the entire hotel staff. It was a GREAT stay at the River Lee Hotel and it gets all my stars in every category.

My husband and I stayed 3 nights here recently. I choose the hotel because of the free parking, free wifi, gym and close walking proximity to the city center. The room was spacious and clean.

The River Lee Hotel is of sleek, contemporary design, we love its highly functional and high quality bathroom feature as well as its extensive breakfast buffet that includes organic, healthy selection. It is clean and bright throughout.

Had breakfast here with some friends and it was very nice,lots of choices from buffet,the porridge was yummy,so smooth and wat I'd like about it was not too thick.the only thing I ddnt like was the omellete,I thought it was a bit to dry and needs a bit of seasoning but over all it was good,definitely go back again..
