“A motel with pretensions”
Reviewed 15 August 2010

This hotel looks like a barracks. Its had a makeover for the entrance lobby and bar but it can't disguise the motel heritage.

Didn't have dinner here. Bar staff were good for the late evening drinks.

Stayed in the Business class room, resaonable size, but room very tired.
Walls very thin, low humming sound in the room plus children running and shouting around the corridors until 2 in the morning made for a bad night.

Shower very poor, shower head couldn't be raised more than half way, had a shower bending over.

Had the buffet breakfast but of the hot food only the sausages were hot. Cold beans and potato's are not my thing.

Bizzy_TravellerUk has it right, stay somewhere else and avoid here. Why Radisson are happy to tarnish their brand with this dump I dont know.

Very disappointed to read such a review on our hotel.
Can I ask if you availed of the 100% Guest Satisfaction that we offer at all of our hotels - whereby we ask you to bring these issues to the hotels attention prior to leaving so that we can make it right? A lot of these issues are easily solved when we are given the opportunity to fix them.
I would be most open to discussing these issued with you over the phone - should you be willing to explain your comments in more detail so that we can ensure you or any other guests that avail of Tripadvisor are given a true and accurate picture of the hotel and its facilities.

Many thanks for your comments and I am glad you enjoyed your short stay with us.
I have spoken with our housekeeping department re the outside of the hotel so we can ensure that this does not occur again.

A group of ten (8 adults to children) stayed here for two nights from the 2.07.10 to the 4.07.10 as a surprise for my parents on their 60th birthday. Me and wife stayed in 224 which was a perfect room.

This hotel is ideal for

A family reunion
A young family
Weddings
Parties
Looking for a quite weekend away but want to be withing 10mins driving distance of Limerick city

Food was very good on both nights and cant complain
Hotel was very busy with a wedding each evening which gave the place a great atmosphere. Reception staff were very friendly and they all laughed and joked with guests which gave a good impression.

It i was to find faults, the lady working behind the bar on both evenings, she never smiled and had no manners. Get a bit of wall paper paste and stick the edges of the wall paper in the rooms! All of us noticed this and would make a difference if it was done and wont cost a lot.

Would i return yes

The thinnest walls imagineable, very average food, very tired inside - it's like an old motel that radisson have branded. And thank god for that, otherwise it would be seriously bad. Stay at the Clarion Suites or Bunratty - give this one a miss!

Very disappointed to read that you had a less than enjoyable stay. As you may be aware, Radisson Blu Hotels offer a 100% guarantee, whereby we ask you to report any issues to the hotel before you leave and we will rectify the situation. I would be delighted to discuss your comments in more detail as this is the first comment I have ever received about the walls being paper thin - the hotel was built originally in 1967 so they are solid walls, not partitions between the rooms. You can reach me via email tom.shanahan@radissonblu.com or phone 353 61 456533. I look forward to hearing from you.

I used the Radisson Blu Limerick as a base for myself and 2 business associates for 2 nights last week.
They came in to Shannon airport from the UK on a rescheduled flight(due to the Icelandic volcano) and were tired and tetchy so I needed the hotel to provide a really good service to improve the mood! I had not used this hotel before but due to the good name Radisson hotels have, I hoped it would live up to my expectations. Thankfully, I was not disappointed and neither were my clients.
It is only a 10 min drive from the airport. There was ample parking available. The check-in was fast, the rooms were clean and nicely decorated. We found the staff were friendly and courteous. The business centre facilities were complimentary which is an added bonus.
We had lunch in the bar the first day,nice variety on the menu and reasonably priced. A nice touch was the complimentary biscuits served with tea/coffee.
We ate in the restaurant one night and had a really good meal with some nice wine.
Overall, I was very happy with the professional service provided, my UK guests had no complaints and I would have no hesitation in using the hotel again.
