Very good value accommodation for people visiting Limerick on a short stay. Directly opposite the train and bus station, it is very clean and reasonable with a bar and food downstairs. Centrally located for everything in the city so do consider it as its very good value.

This is a dirty, old, dark, dismal dump. The two bathrooms I used were disgusting. Who still has bars of soap in public toilets? The staff are so rude both to each other, and the customers. The food I had was good and reasonably priced. Did not stay and never would. Go for food nothing else.

I called in here on Monday evening. I still had 40 minutes to spare before my train left. Menus were left on the table but I approached a woman and asked if she was still serving food. 'Yes' she said as she walked away from me without the hint a smile. A lady sitting nearby noticed this interaction and grinned...

I didn't stay in the hotel; however, I used it for lunch on two occasions. They have a carvery that appears not to be extensive; three food choices. I saw various staff members serve the food or rather throw it on to plates. Smile, it does help! My second visit was Friday 10th April; before heading for the train home....

We arrived to the hotel after making the reservation online. The hotel is well located right oposite from the Train Station which is the best of all. The room was super old with dust and breaks everywhere, and spider nets. Noisy and dark, with very old sheets and appliances. Worst was when in the morning the hot water was down...

Used this as a brief watering hole while waiting for our bus to Galway, very handy location being right next to the bus & train station! Very fast buffet style food which was perfectly fine but don't expect a gourmet experience. Staff efficient and friendly. It's kind of one of those you get what it says on the tin places,...
