Greenhills Conference and Leisure Hotel
Ranked #12 of 20 Hotels in Limerick
Reviewed 8 May 2014

Stayed for one night while over for the marathon. On first impressions the hotel was quite pleasant and the room of reasonable size, clean and tidy. The hotel is quite far out of the city center with little around it apart from a large Tesco at the next exit.

Having dined in the bar and really enjoyed the Hawaiian Burger - excellent burger with good thick chips and recommended - we retired early after a long day and with an early start ahead of us. Shortly after, the guests in the room next door returned and talked and laughed in very loud voices for the next hour or so. This was quite intrusive, but the noise when the toilet was used was loud enough to wake us up - we thought they were in our room!

We managed to sleep by using earplugs (having learned never to travel without them) but it was not what we expected from a hotel of this standard.

The final issue came while trying to leave at 5:45 the next morning - all the doors were locked, reception was unmanned and calling the number advised on the desk elicited no response. Finally we tracked down the night porter setting up the restaurant for breakfast and he very grudgingly and grumpily came to reception to unlock the door and let us out.

We stayed here for one night and found it overpriced for what it was. Our rate did not include breakfast and although the room was fairly comfortable it was also a bit wear-worn. The hotel is also out of town and you can find much better deals in the city centre for a nicer room, in my opinion. The lady who greeted us at reception was very pleasant and friendly though unfortunately, the customer care went downhill from there. We entered the bar and enquired with one of the bartenders if they were going to be showing a particular match. He was extremely unhelpful replying that he didn't know and the encounter ended there. Another staff member eventually turned on the game for us but we left the bar area shortly after due to a gaggle of noisy children running around the place unchecked. Fortunately, we could watch the game on the tv in our room. Later, we rang reception to ask if a taxi could be called for us as we wanted to venture into the city for a drink (there is nowhere nearby). The 'gent' at reception seemed incredibly put out to have to perform such a task and was similarly grumpy when we arrived to reception for our taxi. Upon returning, we enquired politely if the residents bar was still open. The same man informed us that it wasn't (even though there were two or three men in the bar already drinking) but that we could take some drinks to the room. We were happy to take the drinks to our room though the man was extremely rude and unpleasant throughout the whole transaction. We had a comfortable enough nights sleep. Upon checkout the receptionist, who was not unpleasant, seemed distracted and disinterested and did not enquire as to how our stay was. The free car park was quite good. However, if you're looking for a night out be aware that it costs about 10euro for a taxi into the city centre (and a bit extra on the way home). I personally, will not be returning to the Greenhills.

This was recommended to us by a tourist office in tralee, we were told it wss an easy walk into town and would be comefortable enough for one night. When we arrived it turned out we were a taxi ride out of town, not the end of the world but it would have meant for the same total cost we could have had a very nice room right in the centre.

In general the public areas around the hotel were nice enough although some bits did look a little tired.

When we got to the room it had a slightly smokey smell and was not particularly clean. We slso found that the bath tap had been leaking, probably for months and had left a green limescale deposit, there were also hairs around the bath. To give the hotel credit when we complained we were quickly moved to a different room however it was a shame that we were given the first room at all; the hotel was not full and we cant have been the first ones to notice the bath.

After requesting the usual triple room, we were pleasantly surprised to get one of the huge Deluxe rooms, resulting in having 2 full-size double beds along with a double sofa bed. The room was in a quiet area of the hotel and even though a dinner dance was in full swing in the function suite, not a sound was heard. The service in both the bar and restaurant was very pleasant & friendly, with the breakfast being very reasonably priced. The location was perfect both access to the main roads and the stadium and overall, represented excellent value for money.

Room Tip: The deluxe rooms from 175 upwards are huge!

We stopped here for a night to break up a journey. This is a real old style hotel, nothing fancy in appearance. Had a pool which we always look for with a 6 year old.
the reason i have given it a top rating is for the quality of service. nothing forced, it just felt will we were genuinely welcomed to the hotel by people who enjoyed working there and took pride in their work.

Well done to all.

I recently attended a family wedding on Friday , I would like to say what a fabulous day we all had . The staff I would give 10 /10 the food was exceptional , the venue was perfect .
The green family went out of there way to make it a perfect day . The duty manager John Kelly was very helpful and made sure everything ran smoothly . I look forward to my next visit to the Greenhills hotel
