On Sunday October 13, 2013 we checked into the River Lee Hotel. We were doing an independent tour of Ireland with hotels and car as part of our package deal. Wonderful Hotel - definitely a true 4 star hotel. The River Lee Hotel offers complimentary underground guest car parking.
Greeted by reception, our rooms were already assigned and keys were on a small table in the lobby. We were given a river view room with a beautiful U shaped window (two sides of the window were able to be opened.
Our room has 2 full/queen beds, lots of storage, small refrigerator in a lower closet shelf with 2 bottles of complimentary water. Safe, ice bucket & glasses, tea/coffee in-room setup, Pants press, iron & board. Two chairs, small table, desk, computer hook-up, hairdryer in drawer under TV. Bath had tub and a separate shower, washcloths provided.
You needed room key to go up on the elevator (great safety feature) also needed a room key to keep lights on in the room. Beautifully decorated, pool and work-out room.
Buffet Breakfast: Monday – Friday 6:30 - 10:30. Typical full Irish Breakfast with scrambled eggs, rashers (bacon), bangers (sausage), baked fresh tomatoes, fresh mushrooms, white pudding, black pudding, fresh fruit, brown bread, or toast, or scones, with a bit of butter and marmalade. Juice, a pot of tea or freshly brewed coffee. But they would also make fresh omelets or pancakes if you asked at the hot station. Plus, they had my favorite pastry - croissants with rods of warm, rich chocolate. One of the best breakfasts we had on the whole tour!
Nice touch was when we checked out - they offered us each another complimentary bottle of cold water
