A group of us friends regularly travel away together for a weekend in Ireland. We decided this year to give Limerick a try, and we were very happy with our choice. We booked this hotel online and received a very favourable rate for B&B. What we didnt expect was the exceptional quality of this hotel.
Upon check in, we were greeted in a very spacious, modern and clean reception by a very pleasant staff member. Our rooms were located on the third floor and we were delighted with there spacious modern interior design. Each room had an enormous bed with comfortable stylish linen, flat screen TV, free WiFi, refrigerator, safe, all the mod cons. The bathroom was an adequate size with a separate bath and shower. If I had one complaint about the room, it was very hot. But once you got the air con going, it was ok.
The breakfast was buffet style and of good quality. The staff again were friendly and we could have no complaints here. We ate lunch in the bar one of the days and the quality was good. The scones are fantastic!!!!!!!!
We used the leisure facilities. I felt that the pool area was a bit dark. The website shows a fantatically illuminated pool, so I felt this to be a little let down. However, the pool was a good size and the jacuzzi and steam room were very enjoyable. The plunge pool nearly gave me a heart attack, Freezing(It was supposed to be).
Overall the hotel was excellent value for money and I would have no problem recommending it to anyone.
