“A hotel as it should be”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

What service!!! from when you walk in the door to reception till when you leave. could find no faults. The first floor dining/lounge area is a treat. Good food and attentive staff. The rooms on the executive floor are great, especially if you have one facing the river which catches the afternoon sun. The regular rooms are good too. Afternoon tea is a must, but the restaurant in the basement is really like an upmarket TGIF. but does the job. ENJOY

Room Tip: Odd numbered rooms on executive floor the best

I stayed here for one night at the weekend with 2 other girls, we had a had a really good room with 1 kingsize bed and a double bed, couches and 2 big chairs, we booked with the hotel one night B&B and dinner in the Hamptons for €79 each per person, 1 tip i would have would be book the restaurant way in advance as this restaurant is very popular, all staff we met were very friendly and efficient, the breakfast was a pleasure, & food was fab. If visiting Limerick this is the place to stay, a 5 star facility for a fantastic price. Location is central to everything.

Room Tip: Book your reservation with Restaurant well in advance.

Rooms are great here and very large often with good views but the hotel itself is badly let down by disinterested staff in all departments.
At breakfast our party had to wait for ages for anyone to offer tea/coffee or cooked food.
At lunch time we were sat down in the bar area and again waited for EVER! When the girl did eventually come over she took a drink order from one of our party (there were only 4 of us!) and left to go and get it without asking anyone else!
Checking-out was equally painful - a process that took over 20 minutes and we were the only people checking-out.
Shame really as hotel could be superb with attentive (or even half attentive) staff

We were very pleased with our room, the cleanliness, and breakfast at the Savoy. We asked for an extra bed for our son and they literally put an extra bed in the room (not a roll away bed). We could not believe we were getting such a nice hotel at such a great price. The breakfast was delicious. It includes the typical cold buffet but also has a large selection of warm items made to order. The breakfast room is lovely and overlooks the main street below.

Room Tip: Book a room that includes breakfast.

Spent a wonderful weekend at the savoy hotel limerick. Staff were extremely professional and couldn't do enough for guests. The pool is very small but the water is really warm and enjoyable. Unfortunately dinner at the hamptons was very disappointing. Food was 5 out of 10 and the staff were 3 out of 10. Shame really as the hotel experience was fab. I will certainly stay at the hotel again but i will not dine at the hamptons restaurant again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear are much quieter

The breakfast service is "tops" - warm friendly staff who are very helpful and excellent on detail. On checking out, I forgot to validate my carpark ticket at reception to get the 7.50 euro overnight rate in the public carpark opposite the hotel and instead had to pay 15 euro. However, there was no problem when I went back to reception - they just handed me 7.50 euro and wished me a pleasant day - a nice touch by the ladies at reception - thank you!

Room Tip: Rooms at front of hotel can be noisy if (as in our case) roadworks start at 7.30am on a Sunday!

Stayed here recently with my partner after we found this hotel on Axa breaks site, under a more deserving 4 star category. Thought we had hit the jackpot, finding a 5 star at these prices. Dont get me wrong, its a beautiful hotel, with all the correct criteria in place, to achieve 5 stars, but lets itself down with small things. The lampshade beside the bed was very shabby, like idle fingers started to pick away at it, the dust in the room right after housekeeping had been in to work their magic. Had a few occasions to ring reception, either for room service, or when the electricity went in our room, due to a bulb blowing in the bathroom. Bad move. The phone rang out several times, then when it was eventually answered, we had to wait over 20 mins, most times, for someone to come to the room. A tip to anyone who likes hard pillows, is to bring your own, the pillows here are rubbish, they look huge, but the minute your head hits it, they collapse into sheets of paper under your neck, mattress wasnt up to much either. They also have this annoying habit of taking bookings for hen parties, 40 of them traipsed into the much over hyped Hamptons restaurant next door, the weekend we were staying. Noise during the night was fairly loud, to say the least. If an hotel wants to masquerade as a 5 star premises, please get the maintenance, and housekeeping sorted, and asspire to give more prompt service on the phone. This is what cuts it in todays world, for the traveller who is spending their hard earned cash, helping the non NAMA hotels to stay afloat.

Room Tip: Bring your own pillows. Get a room on the 7th or 8th floor overlooking the Shannon estuary. Make sur...
