Stayed here with business colleague for first (and last) time. The physical environment of the hotel was fine in my experience. A nearby multi-storey car park opened almost directly into the hotel entrance. Check in was risible. It took 15 minutes as they could not "find" the booking for our second room. Producing email confirmation of the booking from both Hotelscombined.com and laterooms.com counted for nothing. My room was spot on. A corner room with all the usual facilities. Two windows with a great view over the city and river Shannon. Ample tea and coffee making was provided. We did not eat in the hotel - preferring to go to a nearby restaurant that we know well. On return to the hotel my colleague retired to his room to work. Lucky (?) for me, I'd done my email etc before going out. I went to the bar. McGettigans! What a soul destroying experience. It was vast and empty except for one elderly couple, one solo drinker and myself. Two bar staff. The barman exuded the charm and personality of Joseph Mengles. He put both of my drinks in front of me without so much as "hello". Clearly the strong silent (and irredeemably bored) type. The simple task of asking Him to charge my pint of Guinness to my room resulted in a sigh and no further communication. Thankfully he left about 11.25 - His replacement was a joke. I asked for a brandy & port at 11.35pm and the response I got was " did he not tell you that your last one was last orders?" I replied that David had said no such thing. I was then told "well this is your last one so". I replied that in that case I would have two drinks. These were provided with malice. I was told that the tills were "cashed up" and I would have to pay in exact cash. I did not have "exact cash" amount and asked that the drinks be charged up my room. Not possible - at 11.40pm even though I was a resident and drinking up time in any bar - forget about a resident in a hotel - was midnight. I was told that I would have to give a prepayment off my credit card. I offered a €20 note and received €8 in change. So much for having the "exact amount". I acknowledge that from 10.45 pm I was the only customer in the bar and expect staff were bored and just wanted out. Not my problem. TOUGH. In over 32 years of staying in hotels for work I have NEVER experienced such indifferent bar staff and such evident hostility towards a customer. SHAMEFUL. If this place were to offer free rooms in the future I would not return. Perfectly fine hotel with poor staff who lack the most basic customer service skills. As the song says: "Never, oh never, oh never again" AVOID. Collapse

We stayed in this hotel for one night. It was a present from our family. They had paid with their card when booking with booking.com but we were told on arrival that the money had not been taken out of the card because of an error with the hotel. This was disappointing as they could have let us know before we arrived. Parking was nearby with a £7.50 over night charge however when we told the receptionist that we would need our car to go to a concert he said that we'd have to pay an hourly rate and when we came back that night we could have the over night rate however the car park was closed when we returned. We were on the sixth floor and lift only went to the 5th. Room was clean. Bathroom was very basic and badly finished. Double bed was the smallest I've seen in a hotel room and was very hard. Our room was facing the round about the view was good but it was very noisy. Collapse

We booked this for 4 couples for new yrs eve. It was horrible, once we stepped off the elevator the carpets weren't laid properly and we're all cuts of carpet stuck together! The room was freezing cold and jus dreadful (dirty, stained carpets) toilets were dirty and half painted. The water had to be left running for about 10min (no exaggeration!) To come out of shower warm. We stayed 2 night and never again. 2 couples got upgraded to floor 3 and 5 and their rooms were much nicer but not still not worth the extra money they were just nice normal hotel rooms!! Collapse
Good overnight stay - but please check there are kettles in all the rooms!

Had a one-night stay here recently at the end of December. Parking is available in the hi-rise across from the hotel and is at a special rate of €7.50 overnight, provided you don’t move your car in the meantime, and the fee is payable on check out. Check-in was prompt and we were in a very nice Executive Room, overlooking the River Shannon and which was large, clean and very comfortable. It was very nicely decorated and everything was supplied – except perhaps for a kettle! There was a coffee making machine and tea bags there, but no kettle. However, it wasn’t an issue as we were only staying for one night. There is also free Wi-Fi which thankfully is becoming a feature of most hotels now. We had a very good night’s sleep and breakfasted elsewhere before checking out. This is a good place to stay or to use as a base for touring. We will be back! (I am quite shocked to read some of the more recent reviews - perhaps it is because we were in an Executive Room that things were that little bit more comfortable?) Collapse
