stayed here for a one night stay,location excellent just a short walk into town, rooms nice and clean and staff at check in friendly, plenty of parking.
The only thing can complain about lack of eating facilities (we stayed on a Sunday night main restaurant closed) there was a bar but very limited seating it was a bit chilly to sit outside.
Also breakfast was good plenty of choice the only thing that let it down was you had to get your toast from a toaster machine (3 star standard) as this is a four star hotel I think that the toast should be bought out to you as it is in most 4 star hotels I have stayed in.

Stayed at this hotel from 7th June for three nights. When unpacking in our room we discovered that the safe was not working - to give credit an engineer arrived promptly - but was unable to solve the problem. We were offered use of the main safe - but just for iPhones and Tablets - this wasn't he best course. When we left after 3 nights the safe hadn't been replaced.

When we arrived back at the hotel the following day after a little site seeing we discovered that our keys were non operational. When checking with reception we discovered that we had apparently checked out - despite the system saying we were there for three nights. The same thing
happened on the following day - once can be viewed as a mistake - twice is downright sloppy - not what I would expect from a 4 Star hotel.

Hi SeanTredegar,

We appreciate you taking the time to provide us with feedback on your recent stay. I am pleased to hear that our Engineering Team arrived quickly to resolve the issue with your safe, but I am disappointed to hear that on this occasion it wasn’t able to be fixed.

I am very disappointed that on both occasions our system had checked you out. This is something I will certainly bring to the attention of our Reservations manager and ensure that this is investigated in to.

We hope that you consider returning to us in the near future for a more enjoyable experience.

Because I booked quite late the only room available was a Junior Suite at a total cost of €129 including Breakfast & VAT

The room itself was enormous with Super King size bed; the en suite bathroom was tiny with a shore over bath which I wouldn't have expected in a 4 Star establishment.

There were plentiful amenities in both the bathroom & in the tea / coffee making area.

I was astonished to find that the net curtains were quite badly torn; the bed sheet had a large threadbare patch due no doubt to wear & tear; & the bed didn't have a bed skirt / night frill which left the mattress base & bed legs totally exposed - not pretty & far below what I would have expected in a suite in a 4 star hotel.......

The staff were mostly friendly; the TV had a good choice of stations & the entire hotel has free WiFi

Breakfast was good with plenty of choice of freshly prepared hot food as well as a fruit/ juice/ yogurt/ bread buffet.

Sadly the food served on the outside deck area was indifferent & disappointing - it was also very expensive.

All in all I was quite disappointed with my experience at this hotel. It's in such a prime location & has so much potential......management take note please......

Solid hotel up to American Standards. I had a little issue with the TV being so small. However, all else was very good. Great location. The workout facilities were facing the River Shannon. Just great.

Stayed here last weekend with my boyfriend on the 7th June & it was very busy due to Kickboxing tournament but it was still a very efficient process at reception & all of the staff were very friendly but only fault was that they did not mention on check in when the breakfast times were.
The room was so spacious & very well decorated with a lovely modern twist. I really enjoyed the breakfast the next morning as there was a great variety of foods & have to say best breakfast I have had in any hotel I've stayed in.
Overall, I am really looking forward to returning to this hotel again in future :)
