“A Convenient Hotel with some Service and Breakfast Issues”
Reviewed 28 April 2013

Recently, on April 15-16 we spent two nights at the George Hotel. In general we found this place, convenient, very modern, very clean, and extremely quiet. The Bar and Restaurant look excellent and almost brand-new. The entire hotel is certainly attractive and modern.

Our room was located in one of the high floors and was very quiet, somewhat small, but nothing that could bother us. However, we found the breakfast of limited variety in ingredients and not all well prepared. My wife eats porridge everyday, and she was not happy with the one there. There was almost no fruit in the buffet, and all was out of a can.

The staff was extremely nice and helpful, always ready to attend our questions and requests. However, we found some issues with the complimentary computer service. When we arrived, I asked for it, and I was informed that it was in the 5th floor. I went there, and certainly, there was a computer there for use by the guests. But when I tried to use it, it kept crashing, and coming back with set-up or rebooting instructions in POLISH !!!!!!!!!. I speak three languages, but Polish is not one of them.

After repeated attempts to make the computer work, I called the reception desk, and they sent someone to try to fix the problem, and he could not. In view of this they allowed me to use the computers in the reception area. The next day, early in the morning I tried to use the computer as well, and everything was fine, but in the evening it was in POLISH-MODE again.

This problems was never really solved while we were at the George Hotel. Another peculiarity of this place, not really a problem, is the location of the hair dryer. Initially I thought that there was none, but when I called the front desk I was informed that it was in one of the drawers. I had never seen this, a hair dryer stored and permanently wired through a piece of furniture outside the bathroom. However, it did work very well.

This is a lovely hotel right in the centre of Limerick. Our triple room was great and very clean and well able to accommodate 3 adults. There was a great buzz about the hotel and the staff were very helpful. Breakfast consisted of the usual choices of cereals, breads, 'irish' hot breakfast and it was good. I agree with other reviewers that having to put your room card into the lift is a bit annoying. We stayed here during a rugby weekend and I am not sure if it is normal practice, but we were met by 2 bouncers at the door when we returned to the hotel at night. It was a bit off-putting but a least it did give some peace of mind.

Just returned from a hen party at the George Boutique hotel. Perfect spot for a hen. I had organised the hen party and the hotel could not have made my life easier. So easy to deal with and very helpful. Comfortable rooms. Really nice dinner. Great atmosphere around the hotel. Ideal city centre location. Helpful and friendly staff. Definately a great location if you are planning a hen party or girls night away.

Not the first time I've stayed in this lovely little hotel, and it won't be the last!
Perfectly located in the city centre - walking distance to almost everything.
Friendly staff.
Clean, well appointed rooms. Personally, their beds are just way too soft - but their pillows are perfect.
Driving directions on hotel website are not up to date - neither are their parking directions so just watch out.
And the rate is excellent - best value hotel I've stayed in all year.
