I spent one night here on January 21st 2014 with my daughter and her partner on the eve of her graduation from the university of Limerick. The comments are limited to the room facilities and interactions with staff as we arrived too late to eat and we had booked room only so did not take breakfast.
The staff were pleasant, welcoming and efficient.
Parking is available and free.
The rooms were clean and well appointed, though chilly on arrival. The beds were made with traditional sheets and blankets with a bedspread rather than duvets and were reasonably comfortable. Tea and coffee making facilities were provided in the room - standard tea and instant coffee. The bathroom had a bath and in bath shower. The shower had good pressure and a good range of temperatures. The shower gel provided was of good quality (Gilchrist and Soames). During the night the room was quiet, no disturbance by external noises. The only issue we had with the room was with the number and location of electrical sockets.Most of the sockets in the room were unusable as they were the wrong size. Unplugging a light on one side of the room freed up two useable sockets some distance from the bed - rather awkward if you use your phone as an alarm and like to keep it by the bed. Internet was another issue. It is provided free of charge, but via vouchers obtained from hotel reception. The wifi is provided by bitbuzz, so going online means logging into the service and entering the voucher code which is good for 24 hours. The internet speed was good, but the drawback with this service is that only one device can be used, so laptop users wanting to use the laptop and also a smartphone or tablet will be disadvantaged. I am aware this is a "first world" problem, but it could be an issue for some people.
