“Grand and impressive, excellent breakfast”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

We had a lovely stay. Perhaps the rooms are not quite 5 star standard but they are big, well appointed and quiet. We got a voucher for breakfast which made it excellent value. The pool and fitness facilities are a bit small/limited (the pool is hot) but they hotel does not oversell these. The location could not be bettered and there are lots of road signs to the nearby car park which makes finding it easy.

Room Tip: Upgrade to quiet top flow rooms.

We have stayed in many 4 star hotels but decided to treat ourselves to 5 star to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary! Only that we got a good deal online, we would have been extremely annoyed if we paid full whack!! I had emailed during the previous week requesting a upgrade. When we arrived we had been upgraded to executive room. The only notable difference was access to executive lounge, which had complimentary minerals and snacks!

We got to our room on the eight floor. We straight away noticed the badly chipped and worn furniture, then the torn and stained net curtains. Then I looked for the safe, which I could not find. When I rang reception to ask about safe and about changing room the receptionist spoke to me in a condescending tone, telling me there was a safe in every room. She insisted that there was a safe. When she then came up with key to new room she admitted there was no safe.

The new room she said was newly renovated!!! That was rubbish. The room was exact same. Chipped furniture, lamp shades beside bed very dusty, stain on wall etc. overall very disappointed and only thing that made this pleasant weekend was company of my wife.

If you are looking for five star this is not the place. Four star at best. Generally nice staff and small but nice bar. Breakfast was nice. They had deal for 10euro pp, ok value at that but not worth the full 18euro stated on menu. Also for money being paid, you would think parking in multi storey across the road would be covered.

Room Tip: If you are going to stay get a floor as high as possible to get best views of Shannon etc.

We stayed in a family suite for 2 nights in July. Overall we were very pleased and happy with our stay here. The good impressions started at the booking phase when my emailed questions were returned within minutes! The hotel is a 5 star hotel but I would agree with previous reviews that feel that 4 stars is a better accolade. This used to be a Marriott hotel and the decor and finish demonstrate this, down to the marriott labeling which is still on huge telephones.
The rooms are a good size, clean and reasonably quiet except for neighboring doors slamming shut.
I was initially worried about parking but needed have been as the hotel is literally across the road from a large multistory with easy access, large entrance and ramp, ample spaces and costs 7.50 euros per day. The car park is above a Dunnes Store for food/drinks and papers.
The only downside was the in-room dining - this consists of a handful of meal choices only. There is a very nice Milano (Pizza Express) around the corner.

We stayed here last year and just had to come back again! We arrived on the 1st of August for a 2 night stay. The staff all round were excellent. The receptionist, Anna, was extremely friendly and accommodating throughout our entire stay, and even accommodated us with an early check in as we arrived 2 hours early. We got upgraded to a Junior Suite for a great price. I would highly recommend this upgrade for anyone who really wants to treat themselves! Breakfast both mornings was exceptional! I really couldn't praise the breakfast staff enough for their great service, and the food was absolutely amazing!! It really lived up to our expectations. We had an evening meal in the Hamptons restaurant on the second night which was also exceptional, for both quality and value! The restaurant was fairly busy. We found the young waitress who served us, (Niamh maybe?) , was extremely friendly and helpful and provided us with excellent service! Overall, this hotel is magnificent and I just can't praise it enough! We can't wait to return here next year!

Room Tip: Treat yourselves and go for an upgrade to a suite! Well worth it!!

The Savoy Hotel Limerick is definitely a nice hotel, but lacks some of the amenities and services expected of a 5 star hotel. This former Marriott property has nice rooms and king beds, but did not have a concierge on staff, no bellman at the door to assist with baggage and lacked some of the 5 star amenities you would expect in the room. We were fortunate to have a balcony in our room, which proved to be useful for ventilation as the air conditioner just couldn't cool the room. All said, we still had a nice stay at this hotel.

The savoy is a great hotel. The rooms were comfortable and spacious. The staff were very accommodating. We ate in the Hampton's restaurant downstairs. Clive looked after us very well. The breakfast was fantastic. Central location. Couldn't ask for more
