“Good Hotel at good prices”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

I stay here once every 6 weeks and I am always happy with my stay. Firstly always ring direct and ask for their cheapest rate for your date. I have found the rate direct from them the same as certain booking sites. Once at the desk for checking in I always ask for a lifestyle suite which if they are available I get at no extra cost. With a lifestyle suite you will have ample space in your room. I can't fault the staff either. They are always very helpful. The hotel itself is nice maybe needs a little updating. The food in Boru is good and very well priced. For the price this is a good hotel in Limerick.

Room Tip: Always ask for a lifestyle suite

We stayed at this hotel for just one night after St.Stephens Day.What a pleasant surprise.Our room was plain but very clean and comfortable.The breakfast was absolutely first rate even by Irish standards - far better than some much higher rated hotels in the area.Value for money without a doubt.The adjoining Boru restaurant was also superb.

Requested a triple room and was very happy when we got a very large room with double bed and 3 single beds. Room was clean and beds were comfortable.
Breakfast was great and for the price we paid for our one night stay it was a bargain.

Not a lot of things to write about this Hotel. Location is good and price is very reasonable. Rooms are OK if not spectacular, bed was quite comfy and food was adequate. Service was OK. Another reviewer mentioned the noisy radiator which I also had in the room I stayed in...in hindsight I should have complained at the time but se la vie.

Will stay there again when in the area on business.

Room Tip: Check as soon as you enter the room if the radiator is making noise. Ask to be moved if it is beca...

Good hotel.
The first room they gave me had a radiator that made crazy gurgling and whooshing noises at high volume. Needed to be bled, badly. Like someone endlessly pouring buckets of water into a tin bath.

So I went down to the desk and promptly got offered a new room, which was fine, but it was at the far end of the hotel down a really, really long corridor. I was wishing the room came with a scooter or skateboard to get back to the lobby.
Room was fine. Nice bed.

Ate in the bar, and had a steak which was good. Service was initially slow, but picked up. Waiter was very young and inexperienced and knew nothing about wines, but I guess he's only starting out.

The bar/restaurant is huge.

I was hoping a hotel like this would have a pool and sauna, but it only seems to have a gym.

The breakfast wasn't great.

My girlfriend and I stayed here on the weekend of the RIBBF show due to the price and location. The man at check-in was half asleep, but then again so were we. The corridor our room was on had a very bad smell of smoke even though most of the rooms in that sectio were (supposed to be) non smoking. But maybe the smell was coming from some of the smoking rooms? Friends room on the floor above was brighter and nicer though there corridor had a strange smell of hash, but that isn't really the fault of the hotel...I hope. The breakfast was nice, €7.50 for all you can eat so no complaints there. The on-site gym was good. Overall, absolutely average.

Room Tip: DO NOT stay in 208 - door frame is pretty much non existent and the door looks like its been kicked...
