5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2011

I would recommend staying at the Absolute Hotel on your visit to Limerick. The staff are excellent, so friendly and helpful. The rooms are comfortable, spacious and modern, with everything you need for a lovely stay. The highlight for our stay was the dining experience, it was simply 5 star. The value for money was great, as we are all watching the pennies these days. Room, dinner and breakfast all included in a reasonable price.

Stayed here for one night on business mid-week. Good location for me. Nice views of the river. My room unfortunately was overlooking the road, which you could hear at night. Also the shower didn't drain properly, which I mentioned at reception and they undertook to sort. Now the negatives out of the way. A very good modern hotel. Reception smooth. Great to be able to park and walk straight into reception. Room very modern, I found it very comfortable and very stylish. Bathroom lovely. Loved shower despite drain issue. Very happy with it. Meal in bar was nice. Breakfast wasn't a huge choice but everything there was good. Exceptional value. The staff were also very helpful and friendly. I would stay there again

Room Tip: Ask for a river view, not the road

Nice place , car parking bad , very modern and stylish . Staff could do with a bit of training on how to make customers feel at home.

Dear Rainydays

Sorry that we came across a bit grumpy. We’re usually a cheery bunch but obviously on this occasion we did not deliver. Regarding the car parking we do only have limited free car parking (approx 50 spaces) in the on site car park but there is on street in addition to another secure car park across the road. In fairness we are the only hotel in Limerick City that has free overnight car parking available but I understand it can be frustrating when you don’t get a space. I hope you will still come back to us again

On arrival we were greeted by very friendly staff who made up feel so welcome. We were very surprised to be ugraded to a suite. The location of the hotel is excellent for touring around the city. Our suite had beautiful views of the ducks on the Abbey River from the balcony. The suite was spacious with 2 tv's, huge bathroom and very luxurious shower. On the first night we dined in the hotel, the quality of the food was excellent. The main selling point for this hotel is the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. We will definitely return again.

Room Tip: We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a suite which exceeded our expectations.

Stayed for one night with my husband to relax.lovely clean modern hotel and staff were very welcoming and accommodating.Hotel was about fifteen minutes walk into city centre,which was fine because the weather was lovely.There was a very good value 4 course meal offer on in the evening for 25 euro each but because we weren't hungry enough we just got a main course which was gorgeous.Paid for movie package which was well worth it with up to date movies. Also got the ten euro room upgrade,rooms were big but cosy and luxurious. Only thing missing was a bath,shower only so specify that on booking if your a bath person!only negative I would say was we paid the ten euro each for breakfast and really wasn't worth it,buffet breakfast wasn't too appetising,if we go again we will probably have breakfast elseware for alot tastier and cheaper. Saying that I would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful, well-designed hotel with very comfortable rooms and a friendly and helpful staff. About 10-15 minutes from the city center, but just steps away from a fantastic pub. Incredibly reasonable price. All in all, a really great value.

The offer we availed of was the Sweet September deal and it seemed like it
was too good to be true, and it wasn't!! The hotel was just stunning, the
food was amazing and the rooms were so spacious and beautiful. We had a meal then in the restaurant as part of the deal and it was
magnificent and the staff were SO helpful and efficient. I've been praising
this hotel and the deal we got with everyone since our stay. I will most
definitely be back! :)
