First and foremost I must say I won this night away as part of a Munster rugby competition. However if we were treating ourselves to an overnight in limerick I would expect more from a five star hotel. The common areas are in serious need of painting as are the common area and bedroom carpets. We took the stairwell from the sixth floor to breakfast and the stairs were grubby.
I have previously stayed in hayfield manor and the westbury and in both hotels you see the difference between four and five star ratings.
Friendly, efficient staff on reception. Good breakfast with superb efficient waiting staff.
As a positive the temperature in the room guaranteed a great sleep.
Bathroom spotless and plenty towels, even though there were two of us sharing, there was one bathrobe, I thought this was odd. Personally I would have liked the water a bit hotter but hubby thought it was fine.
The furniture is quite badly marked also something which would not be the norm in a five star I would think.
Overall a fine hotel, in a good location for a twenty walk to Thomond but I would question the five star rating here.
