I used bargain breaks.ie to book a stay in Clayton Hotel Limerick. It was great value and a lovely stay
We had a lovely stay on the Clayton. We had a beautiful view of the river and we were within walking distance of the pubs and restaurants which was great. Breakfast was nice and the staff were helpful and friendly. Only negatives are the liesure centre is a bit small and you have to pay and overnight fee for the parking. Overall 4/5 stars.
Thank you for the great value for money.Unfortunitely,due to the hotel placing us in a family room facing onto the docks with the crane driver who started at 8AM moving scrap metal around This continued all dayon the tuesday. Can live with that , but can't live with being woke up at 8am on a chill out break during hallowen week.The hotels we have stayed in on you're breakaways have been really nice.Food was nice andCarla on reception was pleasant.Customer service was trouble by the management as i never got a response from the hotel.Poor .Would still like to thank you all for the great breaks that ye organise.Keep up the good work.Till the next hotel which i know will be better.Pat l
Nice comfortable rooms , spacious and comfortable. Downstairs is the bar and dining area , not very comfortable , a bar you would not really want to stay long in , a separate more comfortable bar area would be better.
Superb staff very efficient a nd even car park attendant took my ticket and placed in meter
We had a lovely stay in the clayton hotel limerick very friendly staff and lovely food room wes very clean lovely views of the Shannon and lovely big bar will stay there again
Couldn't recommend this enough! On check-in the receptionist upgraded our room to a spacious superior with river view, robes, big flat screen TV, chocolates and a really comfy king-sized bed!! Great location, really helpful and friendly staff and super choice for breakfast. Amazing value for money... Thank You!
This hotel was one of the best hotels that we have stayed in. The room was amazing with its wonderful views of the river Shannon from its floor to ceiling bay window. The bed was situated facing the bay window which gave the beautiful sight of the city lights at night and the daybreak of the river Shannon in the morning with its wildlife. The Staff were very helpful and really friendly, with Declan in particular, upgrading us to a superior/ deluxe room when we told him that we were down for our 24th Wedding anniversary. An overall brilliant experience and a definite return to the Clayton Limerick Hotel in the future. We couldn't fault it!
I really enjoyed my stay in Clayton Hotel in Limerick. The hotel is within walking distance of the city. The hotel itself is very clean and the staff are extremely friendly. The food was excellent and I was delighted to be able to get a coffee and cake late in the evening. The pool area was good and very clean. In all I will definitely stay there again.
Great location, magnificent view of the sunset over Shannon.Room was spotless.Staff very helpful and friendly.Would highly recommend.
Everything was great.Hotel was clean, staff very helpful and friendly espically at reception Aoife and William andthe girls at kids club.Food was excellent. Great value for money.Will stay again.
We had a fab time in the Clayton hotel in Limerick, thanks to Lidl breaks. I had not stayed in a Clayton hotel before but certainly will again. Thanks
In general the hotel was really nice, great location. The pool was a bit small and don't forget your hats as they are a fiver each then.... I didn't find the receptionist that pleasant to deal with if I am honest and I really felt like I was lower class because I was on a Lidl deal. I didn't realise that I had to pay extra for the kids breakfast and just requested that I could check my details, they said no, I needed to pay there and then... I asked if they wouldn't mind billing it to the room and I would pay it on check out, they said no to that as well as I only had a Debit card, I had no cash on me at the time so I had to go back down and pay it straight after breakfast I was told. I paid for the following day as well so I wouldn't be embarrassed again and my partner was asked to pay again. Also on check out I was asked to pay it again! then there was the extra for the car park and honestly I would avoid going on a deal again as I would not want to be made feel like that again in front of other guests. I realise I should have read the small print but I don't think it was handled well.. maybe at the time of check in you should be asked to cover the kids breakfast. Again the hotel itself is really nice, just wasn't to fond of the staff...
Great place to stay - terrific room on 14th Floor, looking down river. Staff great as always and the breakfast is very good. Parking slightly problematic, but I always park on the Dock Road or O'Curry Street, so it doesn't bother me (until I get a ticket!)
Very comfortable, clean hotel. Had evening meal in bar which was very good value for money with a good choice and very fast service. Buffet breakfast also with a good choice. In a great location. Would definately recommend
Lovely and modern hotel. Staff were very helpful and polite. Top place and definitely will be back again
Great stay after a long day at an event. Bed was really comfortable only wish we could have had a longer stay.
The staff were lovely and friendly. Location is close to city and has lovely views of the river. Room was done up recently bed comfortable room was clean. Things to improve on: Bar menu very limited with not a good selection especially at lunch. The pool was cold. Curtains don't cover the window (there was a corner window on 11th floor) so the sun came through in the morning. Car park across the road and its paid parking.
This was a great hotel in a great location. The room was spacious and spotless and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We arrived late on Friday evening and our room was cleaned on Saturday even though we had hardly used the room. The variety of food for breakfast was excellent but the food could be a little warmer. The drink prices in the bar were very expensive. Overall I would definitely stay here again and would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to family and friends.
We had a wonderful stay in the Clayton recently. The staff were very warm and welcoming. The room was warm, clean and beautifully decorated. The beds were extremely comfortable - we all slept so well. I would highly recommend this venue for both business and leisure. 5 stars
great breakfast with a beautiful view of the river. good location, nice bedroom . would stay there again. only downside... pay parking
I stayed at this hotel many times before when it was called The Clarion Hotel and always enjoyed my stay this was my first time to stay under new owners and it was a disaster. The following are a list of complaints my self and my wife had during our stay on Tuesday17th Jan 2017 room no 1101 I have written to the manager with my list of complaints on 19th Jan but got no reply. Glass of Merlot â‚¬8 in the bar Food horrible complained to waiter and receptionist but of no avail. Came down for breakfast next morning to the dirtiest dining room I have ever seen 9 free tables non set properly for breakfast .When I went up for self service breakfast the plates were dirty I spoke to a girl behind the breakfast bar and showed her the dirty plate she said sorry about that.The toaster not working properly.The bedroom was also dirty with water running in toilet bowl all night. I will never stay in this hotel again and my advice would be STEER CLEAR
Good spot for a stay in Limerick - good value too via Lidl Breaks.
Stayed for 2 nights with my partner and 10yr old son. We had read previous reviews about the car parking situation so knew to go the multistorey across the way when we arrived. On check in everything went OK, we were asked did we want a complimentary newspaper each morning so we said yes, never received this. We went for a walk around town and then back to grab something to eat in the bar, when we got the menu it was Asian or European dishes, nothing to just snack on or no even pub grub, wings etc. So we settled for the soup of the day which was lovely and decided to go out to the town a couple hours later to get fed. The next morning at breakfast we got seated fine and there was a nice choice of food, continental and standard fry. After breakfast we went to the pool area, as the hotel has just changed over the sauna, steam room and jacuzzi were closed. The pool was quite small and packed with adults and children so for anyone looking to do a couple lengths which some guy did, there was no chance, he ended up leaving. That evening we went for dinner in the restaurant, food was lovely, wine a little pricey and the lighting was very dark. Service was excellent. I did find though that all the guests with children were coupled together in the restaurant and on the same floor in the hotel, which I don't think is fair. The next morning at breakfast was pandemonium, we had to wait on a list to be seated in the restaurant, which for the size of this hotel is crazy. They have 15 floors and their restaurant is not suitable for this, even not at the busy times. The hotel itself is in a great location, with beautiful views of the Shannon and 5 minutes from the town. I would stay here again now that I am aware of certain things but not unless I got a good deal as the 4* star price they charge they don't live up to.
It was one of the worst experiences during last 5 years. swimming poll facilities was under construction, no one told us till we find in the lift. Beds were all in bits 2 joined together with about 1 inch difference in high. So god help you if you are getting room no 904 and planning to sleep. Rest is not so bad. Staff and food was excellent.
Booked one night stay BB&M. hotel location and views from room lovely, Breakfast grand, But really let down with evening meal. Given a "value Menu" which it stated on the bottom upgrade Menu â‚¬6 surcharge. asked for this and was given Christmas Menu no other food available. very poor selection compared to other hotels I have stayed in, in Limerick,. It would have been better ordering room service as that Menu was superior. Would still rate as 4* Bar and Hotel fine. Restaurant menu needs looking at.
Love this hotel .... ive been back many many times I'm just hoping it doesn't drop in quality now that it's a clayton hotel ..... but I'm looking forward to returning here
hotel was nice but no towels in bedroom when arrived at 6pm and no soaps or shower gels. breakfast was cold had to request it to be heated. i will not return in a hurry
Beautiful view from the 11th floor. Room was clean and basic enough. Breakfast was nice. Staff lovely and helpful. Lovely stay. Bathroom grout/bath sealer and window sill in room could do with maintenance ASAP.
Excellent value on LIDL breaks for a great hotel in a great location. Hotel staff at reception were very friendly and even upgraded our room for free. We had lovely quiet room on 8th floor with a view of river, docks and Thomand Park. Room had ample space and was very clean. Only fault I would have was the breakfast room was very busy and some of the fried food was a bit greasy, swimming pool was also closed for maintenance, but other than that an excellent stay would definitely recommend.
Always a pleasure to stay here been back many times and will return again!
lovely hotel. staff very friendly and helpful. great location. breakfast buffet amazing
Hotel very nice and staff very friendly. The Hotel leisure club was under renovation and not available which was disappointing as we had not been informed prior to our stay. Dining room very cold at dinner and because it was a Lidl break our dinner choice was very limited with the same menu/choice for both nights of our stay. Otherwise it was a very nice and convenient hotel and breakfast was fantastic.
We were delighted with our stay. Room was really lovely with magnificent view. Food was delicious. Staff were exceptionally friendly.
Gorgeous hotel always a pleasure to stay here
Lovely hotel, mod decor. If on floor above 9, try to take lift on the right as the lift on the left only goes to the 9th floor which means you have to take another lift to floors 10-15 from the 9th floor. (This was not explained to us by the receptionist, had to figure it out as on floor 12) Nice rooms but bathroom dated. No separate shower, low pressure, need to climb into bath in order to use shower. Breakfast good, self service except for tea/coffee. Car park off hotel E8.50 for a night. If possible, try to park elsewhere. My car was spray painted over-night. Signs indicate CCTV, but security advised me when I reported the incident that there is not cameras on all floors!!!!! Walking back at night to hotel bit creepy, walkway was lit up but not very bright. Better off to take a taxi.
A well located hotel with easy access. Staff were friendly and professional. Bar food was very good. Car parking was in an adjacent commercial car park with a special hotel rate
Perfect central hotel, great deal.
Lovely Hotel, Clean and comfortable room, Friendly and informative staff, great selection at breakfast. Parking nearby and reasonable. Will stay again.
We had a wonderful stay in Clarion. The staff were were wonderful, they even upgraded us when they heard we were celebrating my birthday. Highly recommended hotel, staff, facilities, with a special mention to Cody on reception who was extremely helpful.
Very friendly staff, comfortable and clean room. Breakfast lovely.
Excellent hotel, 5 minute walk to city centre, lovely views along the river banks and walks
nice hotel beside the Shannon river. lovely food and great service.
Rooms excellent. Breakfast quantity good, quality though was woeful. Badly needs to improve quality of breakfast, it was unedible. Good value stay.
Room was very nice and clean well layed out. Id recommend a high floor room for very nice views. Dinner at the restaurant was okay,wouldnt go there again tho. Service in restaurant was slow at times. Hotel reception staff very friendly and eager to help u with any queries.
Had a lovely stay here at the Clarion Hotel. Room was very spacious and clean and view was spectacular from the 9th floor. Staff were very nice and friendly. Breakfast was okâ€¦.bit dry and not great selection of breads. Had food in the bar one night and that was lovely. Pool was fine. Would definitely stay here again.
thank to the clarion hotel for the lovely night stay on friday the 15 of july,from the moment we got there we felt at home.the staff were welcoming and friendly.we went to the pool had a swim and after had a meal and it was lovely.we went to the city for a few drinks and came back and had a night cap.the night porter chatted to us for awhile and was so friendly.5 star to all..
My wife and I stayed on a two night break with dinner each night the food and choice of menu was top class. The location of the hotel is very central to shopping and bars, and looks out on the shannon. We found the staff to be very helpful and friendly. We will be back again.
Lovely hotel, great staff, real attention to detail. Have stayed here many times because of value for money and wonderful food. Very relaxing , well worth a visit.
we enjoyed our stay at the hotel
Fabulous break, staff very helpful, food excellent, very clean and would highly recommend. Only negative point is car parking is expensive.
Spent a really enjoyable weekend at the clarion. Staff very efficient, friendly and professional. Kids club was a real bonus and my 7 year old loved it. Will definitely be back!
Myself, partner and 2 children stayed in the hotel from Friday 25th till Monday 28 the of march. We were extremely disappointed and will not be staying again. The room itself was comfortable and the housekeeping staff were friendly and accommodating however that is where the positive experience ended. My daughter was on an antibiotic which had to be stored in a fridge however there was no fridge in the room and no way of securing a fridge for the room, instead we had to leave it in a communal fridge behind the reception desk which was not satisfactory given it was prescription medication to which any member of reception staff had access. The breakfast was not 4 star standard with the orange juice obviously from concentrate and not fresh and the choice was limited. The food in the bar was barely passable and if I were to guess I would say microwaved as opposed to cooked fresh. The primary focus of the food and beverage staff appeared to be ensuring food and beverage bills were paid immediately, so much so my partner was approached by the breakfast supervisor as just as he was biting into his sausage to pay 10euro for the children's breakfasts, that is very bad service and from our time time in the breakfast room we were not the only family approached in this manner. Overall I would describe the clarion as a hotel with comfortable bedrooms in a convenient location but very badly letdown by the aggressive payment focused culture of the staff which along with the poor standard of food leaves a very bad taste in the mouth and no inclination to return or recommend it in the future.
A lovely hotel and a great location..rooms and breakfast excellent..great value..highly recommended...staff very helpful too...we'll go back!!Thanks Today FM..
Lovely hotel. Great views from 14th floor. Very convenient to city centre. Approx 10 min walk. The staff were the stars of the show! A special acknowledgement though to Sorcha at Reception (the Italian you recommended and booked for us was spot on) and the General Manager in the Restaurant (you were great craic!), the mushrooms and poached eggs made by special request at breakfast by 6 of us went down a treat. Many thanks. Catherine.
We had a fabulous stay, although our kids ended up with a far bigger room that us!!!
Lovely hotel good. Food great breakfast
I booked Dinner, Bed & Breakfast for the Clarion Hotel Limerick with Lidl breaks. When I checked in I was told I only was entitled to Bed & Breakfast. The hotel told me to contact Lidl breaks. Lidl breaks said I only paid for Bed & Breakfast. I have booked hotels often enough to know that I have been had. Don't get caught like me. Take a "screen shot" of what you are booking. Fergus
From check in to departure the hotel was amazing. Staff very efficient and extremely pleasant. Will be back.
Excellent hotel, friendly efficient staff. Very comfortable rooms.
I had the pleasure of staying at this hotel thanks to airportgroupschemebreaks.com A beautiful hotel, with a beautiful view of the river shannon. So central in Limerick city for someone who doesn't like walking!. Staff were so friendly so attentive at every point you met them from reception to the restaurant and also the housekeeping staff. The huge buffet breakfast the next morning was very tasty and delicious. Will I return to this hotel, most definitely. Thank you Airport group schemes
Lovely hotel, good location and great athmosphere in the Kudos bar. The swimming pool is disappointing though and it was also cold.
Hotel room was lovely and spaciousness. The good in kudos bar as part of the b&b& evening meal was absolutely gorgeous served by a very nice friendly chap called Noel. Breakfast was also lovey. Only down side is the size and temperature of the swimming pool. There were prob 5 families in in and it was packed, no room to swim and it was very cold.. Other than that we as a family of four had a lovely time here.
it was ok hotel.3-4 star facility. breakfast good,leisure center was alright, Fantastic view. Will book the hotel again in the future.
Excellent hotel very clean , food great and only a couple of mins walk to the town centre would definetly stay again.
Had another fantastic stay in their clarion we love theatre food in kudos restaurant. A real family friendly hotel
Really enjoyed my stay at the clarion Limerick, great value for money. Dinner was beautiful, nice restaurant staff friendly lovely room with great view, would recommend and stay again
I was disappointed as I couldnt get a single rate for a single room so I had to pay for a double room which was quite expensive when I was on my own.
Excellent, really enjoyed the experience
Stayed last weekend , hotel lovely everything you would expect , pity pool closed at 7 would have loved a swim but denied entry at 6.25 pm .Noisy neighbours kept us awake but after 3rd attempt at contacting reception someone called to room and sorted noise for a few hours .
Our stay at this hotel was nearly 100% perfect except for the swimming pool,it was very cold for our children and their was another family there who felt the same. The staff were just brilliant,couldn't of been more nicer and the room facilities are lovely. So overall it was a pleasant stay,just the swimming pool was the downfall!!
Lovely hotel and only stroll away from city centre Grate breakfast also lots to offer
Very nice hotel to stay in and staff helpful. Lovely leisure centre and nice breakfast. Pity the bar was not serving later for its residents this caught me by surprise.
When we checked in we were given a wheelchair accessible room which was really cold. We then asked for a standard room which they gave us promptly on the 12th floor. The views of the shannon were really nice from this height. It did make me wonder, if we were given the first room because we got a cheap rate with lidl breaks. Also â‚¬17 for parking for 2 nights was a bit steep.
The Clarion hotel in limerick is lovely to stay in. Had a lovely meal there
Very helpful staff, beautiful room with great view. Kudos bar and restaurant really good, again great view of the city especially at night. Breakfast good and staff friendly and helpful. Would use this hotel again as it is in a quiet area and just a short walk for the city center. Patricia.
fantastic value and comfortable stay. Great food and loved the pool facilities
Loved this hotel .breakfast excellent ,staff very good couldn't do enough for you. It's a 10 minute stroll to city centre .
Great hotel, great location very child friendly will definatley return soon
Really lovely helpful staff. Room was not like in the pictures on website. They could have been cleaner, dust in some places, marks on the carpet. Floor in bathroom very slippery and dangerous. Breakfast - hot food could have been better, scrambled eggs were nearly white, not enough options for vegetarians. Wifi was excellent, not happy with having to pay extra for car parking. but was made easier by staff to get in and out with car etc. Views were amazing, we stayed on 11th floor. would go back again but would expect more modern room.
Very very shabby room standard of hygiene quite poor pubic hairs in bathroom cleaned myself with baby wipes. Towel fit for the bin. Breakfast food nice staff no interest in anything other then clearing tables. Pool area v nice
Hotel was not kid friendly. Bar not comfortable. Food was nice but not a great selection on set menu.
We were delighted to take our extended family on an affordable break while they were here from Canada. Being able to book the Clarion through Lidl-breaks made that possible. It was a great hotel, facilities & breakfast and the staff very accommodating. The main restaurant wasn't open that night, but the girls at the desk found us a great place where the 14 of us could walk to for a great meal! A little pricey for parking since we had 4 cars & the hotel hasn't it's own carpark. DM- July '15
Initially we had some issues with our stay as the hotel is undergoing renovations but the staff and management picked up very quickly on our upset and immediately went out of their way to rectify things. They could not have done more to see that we were looked after wonderfully - I will be back. Special thanks to Ivan the manager for his superb handling of everything.
Had a great one night break here with the kids. The childrens club was excellent. The staff in the bar were lovely and we had lovely food. Would highly recommend the hotel for a family break!
Nice hotel, good location, very friendly helpful staff. Kelly in the Kids Club is fantastic with the kids and her face paintings are unbelievable she really made stay much more enjoyable as our kids were happy in her company.
Reception: busy Elevators: very busy...queues !? Room: ok Shower: excellent Breakfast (in room) excellent Service (in room) good deducted stars due to queues for elevator to get up to room AND to get down from the 10th floor!
Not helpful staff at reception, room is with old furniture, carpet, with marks everywhere, maximum 3 star, very disappointed, glad that stayed only one night
We stayed in the Clarion hotel, Limerick, for 1 night recently. The staff were so friendly, in both the Kudo's bar and the restaurant. The food was excellent, in the restaurant, on the satuday evening. We only had one night there, but it was so relaxing. That night, there was a DJ in the bar, and he was great! The bar staff couldn't do enough for us, as well as the restaurant staff. A big thank you to the head chef, Ronan, for the delicious food! We will definately be back again soon.
Very nice location great views of city and river friendly staff lovely clean bright rooms good food will be back
Great hotel lovely food would definitely stay here again
Great location as can easily walk in to city center. Lovely food and staff very helpful. Lot of hens and stags but we were put on higher floor so it was quiet and good family hotel as we had our toddler.
We stayed here over the Easter weekend and I can't praise the staff highly enough. They were all very pleasant and professional. Our room was on the 13th floor and had fabulous views. Unfortunately the hotel doesn't have it's own car park, but they have negotiated a reduced rate with Euro Car Parks which is just around the corner from the hotel. If you are staying for 3 or more nights, ask for a weekly car park ticket, as it works out cheaper! All facilities of the hotel were great, I would definitely stay here again.
Hotel was very central staff were frenfdly was not happy as we left our two chargers behind and when we rang back for them told they were not there everything else was good rat. 3 star because of chargers
Hotel was nice..disappointed with the swimming pool it was very small, restaurant was only open on weekends so had to go out for dinner..breakfast was only ok-not a great selection or quantity, there was no rashers, brown bread, scones or yoghurts. Room was lovely had great view and was clean and comfortable. Bar menu wasn't great
Great communication from the hotel before our arrival so I was really looking forward to it. A bit disappointed after staying there as it was advertised as a luxury hotel. Room was incredibly cold, we tried to adjust the temperature using air conditioning settings, but it didn't heat up at all. Bathroom was moldy and bathtub not cleaned properly. Cobwebs in several places in the room (this is 7th floor room in the city, not exactly countryside). Room looked worn out, carpet was grey but still looked dirty. Not enough towels/toiletries in the room - I had to call the reception twice and wait for an hour to get them. One of the positives is the view from the room over the river, it was beautiful and definitely worth it. The food was good and the breakfast was really nice as well.
Recently enjoyed a stay in The Clarion Hotel, Limerick. The room was fresh, clean and had everything we needed. The breakfast was good and the staff were friendly. My only criticism was the area directly surrounding the hotel was quite run down. However you are very close to the city centre. I wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
We spent a nice time in hotel. Comfy room, polite and friendly staff, excellent breakfast, good leisure center, ideal location.
Enjoyed our stay staff very friendly and helpfull great location for sightseeing and access from M7 Room had a Great view of Limerick city however the rooms soft furnishings were not of the â˜†â˜†â˜†â˜† standard Tks lidl-breaks
We were very satisfied with the hotel. We liked our room, bed was comfortable. Room was clean and had wifi that worked and TV. Didn't have time to try pool and gym.
very courteous staff. View from the room fantastic.catering facilites excellent.If you have a car the parking is nearby.
Had very pleasant stay at Clarion Hotel. Beautiful view from bedroom which itself was very clean and well presented. Staff could not have been more helpful. Breakfast met all our dietary requirements and we will certainly return and stay there on our next visit to the city. Our only fault would possibly be that the area immediately outside of the front door of hotel not that wonderful but views of river and walks along river very nice indeed.
Room was stuffy food was ok service in restraunt terrible 3 working there takes half hour to get drink dropped down would not stay again mainly because neither of us slept due to room being so stuffy air con useless horrible nights stay
Excellent Location, Family Frienly. Fantastic Value
Everything great - good food, good location and very friendly staff
I recently had a lovely two night stay in the Clarion. I have been here a few times before and am always impressed. The rooms are spotless and all staff where extremely friendly from check-in to check-out. The only issue I had was that the breakfast room was extremely disorganised and chaotic. It seemed as if nobody was in charge. Other than that, great little spot at a great price.
Fab hotel, ideal location on the banks of the River. Food very good, will certainly be back.
We stayed on a Saturday night and had a meal in the restaurant which was just stunning. Breakfast was amazing, staff were lovely, rooms were very clean and nice and had lovely views of the river. My only issue would be when you come out of the hotel the area to walk to city was run down and grubby. They are clearing docks and had piles of debris stacked up next to the hotel. I cant fault hotel itself but areas around would put me off.
nice hotel, staff were very friendly and helpful, would go back again
VERY MODERN HOTELWITH EXCELLENT VIEWS OVER RIVER. ROOMS VERY NICE AND CLEAN ANDATTRACTIVELY FITTED OUT. STAFF VERY PLEASANT, POLITE AND EFFICIENT. WOULD DEFINITELY STAY THERE AGAIN ID CHANCE COMES UP **** 4 STARS
room was clean and comfortable. It was a busy time as it was easter holidays and the dining room was busy but with this in mind it would have been a good idea to have more staff on it appeared that there were only two waitress covering the floor this was on the the morning of the 24th April.
very enjoyable stay. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful. Hotel rooms modern and clean. Would return and recommend
Terrific room - great view from the room looking up river - stayed on 13th Floor. Breakfast was OK but restaurant was a bit like Clapham junction with the amount of staff running around the place and practically falling over each other!
Top class hotel and very comfortable stay. Special requirements with dietary needs for my child which was dealt with superbly. Only one fault - one of the lifts was broken with queues. Expect a rapid repair as all of the rooms are upwards.
The staff were just lovely and very helpfull especially the girls in the kids club. My 4 year old boy had a ball in the kids club he was cooking crispy buns and got his face painted, all the girls even made a fuss of him even at breakfast and remembered his name. We had a family room on 7th floor with a view over the river that was just lovely. My older son raved about how good the wi fi was and meeting some of the munster rugby team at breakfast was a big bonus for him. The food at both the bar and restaurant was lovely we had a really nice few day here thank you to all.
Nice hotel, centrally located, clean rooms. Breakfast on both mornings very chaotic, tables not cleaned, had to sit and try and tidy plates away myself. Only scrambled eggs, no fried eggs (only a small problem I know!). Lovely pool area. Had a lovely stay with kids, only downside was the breakfast.
Had a lovely night away in Clarion rooms were spacious, food was outstanding and very comfortable. Would most recommmed clarion hotel enjoyed our stay immensley. ****
Hotel excellent as usual we had no problems with any aspect of hotel
This was one of the nicest hotels I have stayed in. Hotel and decor were lovely, Food was great but the most impressive thing in this hotel were by far the staff. Each and everyone of them were helpful and courteous. 2 of them really stood out ( and I never write reviews by the way ) A young girl called Chloe in the bar was so so helpful and gave us great shopping tips and really made us feel welcome and Kate at reception was lovely too. All in all I have to say Limerick gets a really bad rap as it is so much nicer than we expected and the people are so friendly. We will be back!
Excellent spot and service was excellent all around. Lovely view of the Shannon
Enjoyed my stay overall, but would not book a smoking rm again as I thought the room 809 was very shabby and not enough ventilation also thought the halls to room was shabby,food was nice.
super say bar nice staff excellent would stay here again 4 stars
Nice hotel..food good...pool disappointing and parking away from the hotel a bit of a hassle. Late at night the area around the hotel is quite dark so not really safe to walk to city centre. 4 stars
Excellent hotel - catered extremely for a group of families as a get together - went out of their way to accomodate the kids in the kids room with a big table so that they could eat and watch a DVD whilst the adults sat outside having a civilized meal and drinks. Limerick City only 10 - 15 min walk , nice stroll. Pool was small but perfect for us , breakfast was also lovely . Carpark next store to hotel only â‚¬8 for 24 hrs if you pay at hotel reception. Great views of the Shannon at night time. Thank you Clarion - , my family and I will be back and will again book through Lidl Breaks to get the great rate that we got AGAIN !! 2 adults and 3 kids here.
hi just want to say hotel was fine but limerick is a dirty city and i wont be returning.
This hotel is in a great location and very close to the city center. The hotel itself was nice and the room was clean and spacious. The staff were lovely and the air conditioning was ideal as the room was very warm. The only negative i would have was with the parking. The staff member who checked us in did give us much information about it. We took the car with us in the evening and when we came back at 11pm the gates were locked. We were just lucky that another person who stays in the appartments above the car park had an access key. It would have been good to know when the car park closed and how we were meant to get back in again. Overall an enjoyable stay!
lovely hotel in a great location, short walking distance to shops and bars. Lovely breakfast courteous and friendly staff.
Very comfortable and clean room. Also nice and quiet. Disappointed with check in .Had to wait until 3.45pm and no apology! If we were offered a cup of tea while we waited it would have helped. Also there was no info about paying extra for car park.Breakfast was lovely and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. Please put this on your advertising.But I would stay there again.
an enjoyable stay.room and bathroom clean. staff friendly and what a bargain @39 for B/B
I had booked 2 family rooms for both families to meet up on our way to a family gathering. We all had a great stay, the restaurant was great, we booked a table for all to eat together. The stay was great, looking forward to visiting again.
The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was perfectly clean and comfortable with beautiful views. The food was nice but had one disappointing main course during our stay. All in all a great relaxing getaway! Will definitely be returning again!
We had a lovely stay in the clarion in Limerick. The staff were very pleasant and friendly and I would go back again. We decided to go away on Monday morning and it was great to be able to book your hotel there and then. I would give it 4 stars. Thanks a million Maudie
The level of service was very poor, as was the quailty of the food. I am unable to say anything good about the Hotel I would never stop at this Hotel again.
I booked this for my Mam and Dad for the August weekend. My mam rang me over the weekend to tell me how pleased they were with the room and how it overlooked the river. They used it as a base as they travelled to Clare and Kerry during the day. They said they definitely will stay here again. Maria Hegarty Dublin
We enjoyed our stay at the Clarion Hotel in Limerick. It's typical of what to expect from a chain hotel, however the staff were very friendly and couteous at all times, the rooms were a good standard and the faciliies are good. We ate in the bar as we didn't want the formality of going to the restaurant and the food and service were first class. The waitress was very helpful with tips for places to go in the evening. Although not in the heart of the city the location is good with lovely views of the river. It's also only a 2-3 minutes walk to Dolan's pub that has a good atmosphere and live music. The only downside to our stay was that we had to pay for parking in the local car park although at a reduced rate it was something that I hadn't seen in any of the promotional documentation.
Stunning hotel in a beautiful location. Bar staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful the food however was a massive let down. On booking I thought we were eating in the kudos restaurant. Iv eaten in kudos in the clarion in cork and a friend of mine is a chef there so was looking forward to the meal. We were changed to the other restaurant where my boyfriend payed a 10eur supplement for a steak which was not cooked to his liking so he sent it back on receiving it again it still looked grey and unappetising. Apart from the food being very poor the rest of the hotel and staff were brilliant.
Perfect location and beautiful views of the Shannon and evening sunset. Being vegan, my fiancÃ© and myself were provided with an excellent option for dinner and great choices for breakfast. The room was lovely and extremely clean and the staff were very helpful. Especially William, who went out of his way to accommodate us and had a great attitude and sense of humour.
We stayed here in may and the staff were very nice and the room was lovely. we enjoyed our stay greatly and would return again. Sharon, John and Matthew Naughton Galway.
We stayed at the Clarion for 2 nights and I would recommend this hotel highly. The staff were most helpful and were great with children. The pool is a bonus and the food was very good.
The room was nice, the dinner was nice. The breakfast was not great, overcooked and the scrambled eggs tasted like they were made from powder. There is a charge for the car park which is unexpected and to be honest means I would stay somewhere else next time.
Great hotel. We were 2 adults & 3 kids and the room was a good comfortable size. Staff were really child friendly and some nice touches like colouring books and colours for the kids when we had dinner. Food was lovely. We ate at the Asian restaurant. Pool was small but clean and nice views over the Shannon. This is where we will stay on any future visits to Limerick.
Really enjoyed our stay. Great food, friendlly staff and the kids club over over Easter was great. Highly recommend the Clarion and Limerick
lovely hotel food was lovely had a very nice stay
The Clarion is a lovely hotel with a great view of the shannon and right beside the city, The family room was comfortable and spacious. Breakfast was very nice with a good variety. The pool and jacuzzi also another plus. The staff were extremely friendly with a special mention to the bar/food staff who were excellent with our little two year old who wanted to run riot as we had a bite to eat. They provided a few different distractions for her so that she sat at the table while we ate. The man at check out also very friendly and gave us a 10% discount card for use at any clarion hotel. I Highly recommend this hotel especially if travelling with a young family. If i had one negative it would be the fee for parking but overall this hotel is excellent.
Stay in this hotel over Easter 2013 with my husband and two kids aged 8 and 5. Had a family room which was adequate. We really enjoyed our stay. While I wouldn't rave about the breakfast we had dinner in both the bar and the restuarant and would recommend both. The meals were very tasty. This hotel is very child friendly. The Easter bunny and egg were a lovely touch. Both kids made friends. And the swimming pool was lovely. Overall I would definately recommend this hotel
Staff very friendly upgraded to a deluxe room free of charge on arrival!room was lovely , no complaints just bit disappointed with the menu for the evening meal choice wasn't great but what we did get was lovely!
5of us had a very enjoyable week end. Staff were excellent. Mary
We had a lovely St Patrick's weekend at the Clarion in Limerick. Our two boys enjoyed the Kids club and my husband and I enjoyed a quiet drink while they were busy painting and playing games. The kids play area is situated at the end of the Lounge and we could see them while they played safely under the supervision of the very capable, friendly staff. The staff are the friendliest I have met in any Hotel, without being over bearing, they are genuinely nice. The only gripe I would have is that there is only Oriental food served in the lounge in the evening, I love Oriental food but not two nights in a row, and as the kids were busy in the kids club we did not want to haul them off to the restaurant. A bit of variety in the evening lounge menu would bring it from 4 to 5 stars. Value for money 10/10
booked this hotel for one night but were so happy we ended up staying 2nights.very clean and staff were lovely.
was very annoyed that there was no car park for guests had to pay 9 euro a night in this car park across the road. night staff were very rude and unpleasant. only 1 member of staff at reception in the morning and it was taking ages to check out rooms were very nice and comfortable that was about it will never stay there again in my opinion i had a very unhappy stay.
We stayed at the Limerick Clarion Hotel for a weekend break on 1st march 2013. We were very impressed with the hotel. All the staff throughout the hotel are friendly,courteous,and are only too happy to be helpful to the guests. The food is excellent and the bedrooms are neat and comfortable. We were afforded a room on the 14th floor and the view from there was stunning. We must mention that on the weekend that we stayed the weather was dry but very cold....but the bar, restaurants, and bedroom were really lovely and warm, we appreciated that on such a cold weekend. Thanks to all at the Clarion for making our weekend so enjoyable.
The overall experience at the hotel was very pleasant. The Receptionist on check in was very helpful and friendly and the overall service at the hotel was excellent. We had a very enjoyable stay at the hotel.
Lovely hotel with friendly staff. The food was good and the view from our 14th floor window was spectacular. We will definitely be back!
Top class hotel and staff in central location in Limerick. Lovely food. Very busy on night we stayed but staff coped very well. Lovely bedroom with great views.
Beautiful Hotel all really enjoyed our stay staff were so friendly and helpful and the food was excellent. Would definitely go back.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Clarion Hotel last Friday night 11th January. It is a very relaxing place - no noise at all as it is away from traffic. The room was spotless with a large t.v I can't praise it enough for comfort and relaxation. We will definately go back there again. Also it was excellent value for money. Phil from Kerry
We had a fantastic weekend, highly recommend, hotel food, and facilities are excllent, staff very friendly and helpful. Many thanks
We had a wonderful 2 night stay at the Clarion Hotel Limerick. We arrived on Sunday and to my suprise my lovely husband had upgraded us so the room was very spacious and had 2 windows one of which was a big glass bay window which overlooked the Shannon River. I was so peaceful to sit with our coffee's watching the swans and seagulls. The breakfasts are self service and such good quality food. Sunday evening we ate a very nice meal in the Kudos bar and Monday evening we had the New Years Eve gala meal which was amazing. All the stakk were friendly and polite. We had a great time.
We were not pleased with our room 1411 is a very poky room not a 4 star room in my eyes .We did enjoy our trip to Limerick .Thank You very much, Joan three star
The added cost of car parking was a disappointment . The hotel is nice, although the service was terribly slow, both checking in, out and waiting for our meal . The staff were friendly and helpful, and the beds were comfortable .
Really enjoyed our recent stay in the Clarion. Staff very friendly and helpful and hotel very clean. Loved the food from the bar, esp the udon noodles. Would definately use the hotel again. We cannot get enough of Limerick and the Milk Market.
Had a lovely time with the grandchildren, at the Clarion Limerick, Staff were lolely, and most obliging. Most certainly will recomment the hotel to all my friends. Many thanks, Best Regards, Gerard Farrell..
My husband, two kids and I stayed for a long weekend in the Clarion. I must say it was a beautiful hotel to stay in and very kiddie friendly. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Family room was fine, could have been a bit more spacious. With two pushchairs and luggage in the bedroom, there was very little room for maneuver. I would also like to mention that having to pay for car parking was a bit of a disappointment as this is a-given with other hotels we have stayed in. In saying all that, we did enjoy our stay and Limerick is a beautiful city. We would return again some day but maybe stay in a larger more spacious room.
Hotel was neat and service was great. Loved the view of the Quays from the room. Only snag was we werent aware they had no parking but subsidised overnight parking of â‚¬8.50 across the road. Overall experience was good...even got complementary late check out till 2pm. Will recommend.
We booked this overnight at the last minute, as we were going to see the Munster vs Edinburgh match at Thomond. As always when we stay at the Clarion, service was great, views fab, close to all locations and we got to see all the lovely rugby boys!
Stayed here for 1 night. We had booked dinner for 8pm but had to wait for half hour as table was not ready. The restaurant was not even busy same night.Service was extremely slow. On checking out we were charged for beverages 28 euro which we did not have. Annoyed about this. Also residents should not have to pay for car park.
The Clarion Hotel, Limerick is rated as a 4 star hotel, but I was disappointed with the cleanllness and finish of the hotel. Bar and riverside balcony were very run down. Stairs areas bady needed to be painted. we were on the 13th floor of the hotel ( where the views were great) but we spent more time waiting for the lift to bring us up and down. Area around the hotel was very run down and I was a little uncomfortable when I went for a evening stroll, and there is no parking provided by the hotel. there was a discounted rate for a near by car park. On a positive note, the staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was OK. Will I stay there again, No.
I booked a family room for myself and my 2 daughters. I was a bit dissappointed to get a room with 3 single beds and very little room around them. Would have been fine for 1 night but was a little bit cramped for 2 nights. The staff were lovely and friendly and this includes the very helpful staff in the pool/gym. Paying an extra 17 euro for parking is a bit excessive - guests should have a better discount. This takes away from any saving on getting a good deal on the rooms. I'd still go back - for the staff alone.
Disgusted.went for 2 nights with our 4 year old daughter.it said on website there was a kidsclub but there was no club on.i really dont know how a hotel can get away with that.i think Lidl should check that hotel out.i had two course dinner no starter and it was 45 minutes before i got it and there was only 8 people in the restaurant.i travel alot and have never experienced any thing like that.the staff were very nice. we were in our room for 9.30 because our child was fed up and wanted to go home.she cried because there was no kids club.the whole weekend was ruined. I hope someone will have the decency to contact me and offer me another weekend free with a kids club. yours sincerely mary field. ps.All the Carlton hotels have fabulous kids clubs .
perfect hotel for a night away, got great service and great food, easy to find. fiendly and professional staff. room was lovely too, great views of the river.nice one.
The staff were very friendly and most helpful. Parking is not free which is a bit of a nusence and the breakfast wasnt the best iv ever tasted.
very nice hotel stafff very friendly donal kerry
Staff at check in not friendly we had booked a family room and we were given a double, then they relaised their mistake and we had to change rooms, we were told to wait outside new room , and twenty minutes later someone shows up with key. while paying for dinner in bar credit card machine not working. Lift in the car park not working, swimming pool freezing.
we were thoroughly disappointed with our recent stay in this hotel. the pool facilities were appalling. we choose to stay here over a choice of many other hotels because of the pool but were sorry we booked two nights, if i could have cancelled i would have. The changing rooms were terrible, cramped and dirty. the pool was small and the Jacuzzi was old and poorly made. the location was good and we had a nice view but would definitely not choose to stay again. the rooms were ok, for the price we paid but the housekeeper left the window open all day while we were out so when we returned the rooms was cold. we had to mention to the reception twice about the state of the bathrooms downstairs, which i was very surprised even had to be brought to their attention. the bar staff were the highlight of our stay, they were friendly and very helpful and nice.
Hotel was very good .staff very helpful.meal excellent in the bar.room very comfortable.view lovely.would reccommend it to people.definitely will return.
apart from a flustered receptionist who was a bit snippy on arrival, everything else was great. Have stayed here a few times and wouldn't let it put me off (she might have been having a bad day!). Rooms were clean with great views, breakfast is always great and there's always plenty. The ony problem I always have staying here is that the car parking ticket is very pricey at â‚¬8.50. I think there should be more of a discount for hotel guests.
Everything excellent. Especially the Breakfast!! Freshest I've ever tasted & service brill!
Rooms food and service excellent.
Found the hotel very cold both in the bedroom and bar areas, I did let reception know. The room for a 4 star was very small, it was a twin room and no room to move around as we were beside the lifts and they were part of our room which made it smaller. Cant believe it's a 5 star hotel to be honest, worst hotel i have stayed at as I have made many bookings via the lidl breaks website. However, the food was excellent.
Great staff, Great evening activities for kids. Great play area near the bar but separated by glass panels so you can see the kids but havev a relatively quitet meal/drink. No baby changing facilities in the pool or family changing rooms. Good value , central location and I'd stay there again.
We recently spent three nights in the Clarion and we could not fault it. Hotel staff very welcoming and friendly - food was excellent - rooms spacious and very clean. Would highly recommend this hotel and we will certainly stay again in the hotel.
Stayed at the Clarion Hotel in April 2012 with my daughter and her two friends and had a lovely time.we only stayed for one night, but enjoyed it so much we are returning in May for two nights. Staff were very welcoming and friendly and even though we were on a special offer break of bed breakfast and dinner for only 49 euro, we were very well looked after both at reception and the kudos bar staff. we didn't get a chance to use the leisure center but hope to avail of this next time. Rooms were spotless and big, we had two adjoining rooms and even though we arrived early, one room was made available to us immediately. Stunning views from the bedrooms and also the bar and restaurant, not far from shops, sights etc. The only fault we had was that it RAINED in Limerick for our stay ! no fault of the hotel ! Cant wait to go back again soon..
This Hotel is in a great location,Park the car and walk around this beautiful City.The staff were very professional. The room was beautiful, very spacious, The shower was OK but I'm not a fan of shower curtains even though it was spotlessly clean. Breakfast was very nice.I will stay here next time I'm in Limerick.
great food both in bar and breakfast, the staff were very friendly and helpful. the paid parking was a bit dear which made a break a bit wore expensive. would stay again.
excellent service,room tidy and very comfortable, would stay there again no problem. staff very friendly .
Myself and my fiancee stayed here last weekend (3rd March). This is a lovely hotel in a great location. We had booked an offer for two people b&b and 1 evening meal. The food in the hotel was beautiful at both the dinner and the breakfast. The service is also very good. Everyone greeting you with a smile. The room was lovely although there was a good bit of evidence of wear and tear especially in the bathroom (Cracked tile and peeling ceiling paint). The room did feel cold even with the air con on warm setting but that is probably because it was such a cold night and next to the water. We stayed in the bar after our meal and the bar men were also very nice and pleasant.
we had a lovely brek for two nights. Great food and very friendly staff. receiption and bar area very relaxing, decor in corridors to rooms vey boring fantistic views from bedrooms and bar and restaurant,
Ideal for our 2 small children(ages 3 and 4) as there was an enclosed play area at the end of the bar/restaurant area.
Brilliant location very friendly staff and lovely hotel
we enjoyed our stay here. the meal was delicious and the room was lovely. staff couldn't have been nicer. thanks
Faboulous hotel !! we stayed there over the new year for for a few nights , cant fault a thing ,food excellent, staff very patient and friendly, as they stepped over children .. rooms had all the basics you need .. walking distance to beautiful town lots a shops, we go away a few times a year and will defenitly be returning to limerick.
We stayed over xmas hols all very well except the dining room services was not up to a good standard unfortunately very slow and noot sharp enough
Great hotel great value very convenient for shopping - staff friendly -rooms big clean & quiet- will return again
Had a fantastic time the room had a fantastic view the food was superb and the staff extremely friendly. It is the nicest hotel we have ever stayed in. We will definitely be back. Eating breakfast looking out over the river was one of the many high points of our stay.
Had a great time. Absolutly no complaints, marvelous facilities, lovely food, nice swimming pool and above all friendly and helpful staff. 10/10
Clarion Hotel in Limerick was a lovely hotel. But we found the staff not very courteous and at times rude both at reception and in the bar. The staff in the dining room was very nice and helpful. 3
we stayed at the clarion hotel for 2 nights in oct 2011. we were celebrating my mothers birthday, so along with my 3 sisters,mom and i we had a great two nights. included in the fantastic package was a dinner on the friday night which was excellent. the bedrooms were very comfortable and the breakfast set us up for the day. we were within walking distance of o connell st. and dirving to the fantastic shopping centre took about 10 mins drive. we rested,shopped, read, enjoyed good food and came back home very rested and relaxed. the clarion hotel was a great bargain for the two nights and we will be visiting again soon. many thanks for all the care and attention that we enjoyed at the clarion. the staff were so helpful to us and we are very grateful nora ui dhomhnaill gaillimh
Stayed in the Clarion Limerick for one night DB&B during a rugby weekend. The match kickoff was 7.30 so I asked could we have our dinner at 6.00ish. I was told that the first available reservation for dinner was 7.30 but that we could have food from the bar. After I got my starter in the bar later that eveving a group that was sitting next to us asked the waiter in the bar could they book into the restaurant for dinner. He asked them how many there was in the group and they said nine. He went to the restaurant and came back and told them that they could get a table at 6.10. This was very annoying it is as if the Lidl break people are second class. My wife's main course took fifty minutes to arrive. We could not get the waiter's attention during that time. Eventually another waiter came and asked us were we alright and served us. Bar food was very poor. You would get better in any Oriental takeaway. I was going to complain at checkout but the person that checked me out didn't even ask me "was everything alright sir". P.s. Munster lost
Hotel was perfect, very clean and staff were great
We thoroughly enjoyed our one night break. The evening meal was top class. The breakfast was fabulous,served til 11am! THe staff was so friendly and helpful. We will definitely book another brek very soon.
We had a brilliant two day stay in the Clarion Hotel. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful . Our hotel room was in prime position and it was a beautiful, spacious room. The food in the Kudos bar was fantastic with a great choice. We could have eaten in the restuarant if we had wanted to, at no extra charge. Breakfast was also delicious and all in all we wished we were booked in for a week. Thank you from Val and Eddie Sweeney.
No complaints about the Clarion, except the parking.... should be free to guests. Room was clean,food good and staff friendly and helpful, terrific view up the river.
Top notch, excellent check in by very helpful guy. Made us feel very welcome. Had no issue with us having the dinner in either the bar (Thai food) or restaurant The food was brilliant, hotel atmosphere great. Leisure facility top notch with a great view from the top of the hotel and in the swimming pool Bedroom and bathroom immaculate and plenty of room. All at a great price.
To be honest, the stay was disappointing, starting with the car park fee and the view of the scrap metal yard and the cool receptionist checking in. I have done secret shopper reviews for other hotels and the lack of warmth from one particular receptionist, who also checked us out, left me itching to have the secret shopper forms to fill in. When we arrived in our room there was a musty mouldy smell which my sister mentioned to Robert at reception, very friendly and competent, but when we returned from shopping, the smell was still there. My sister spoke to Robert and the housekeeper called to us. She was really nice and helpful, agreed about the smell, went down to Robert at reception and came back to offer us a 2 bedroom aprtment on the top floor, things were really looking up. The apartment was lovely,with great views, a relief as we had taken my 77 year old mum away for the night and we wanted her to enjoy herself.But the dinner was disappointing, the menu read well, great views out the windows on the water, lively buzz in the place but the food let it down. My sister's medium steak, which she paid a supplement for was really overdone and there was a strange taste off the carrot and ...? mash which put me off my dinner.My mum really enjoyed her salmon, so maybe we had chosen wrongly. I had a very nice creme brulee to take the strange taste from my mouth, but it still lingered there the next morning at beakfast, my stomach shut down at this stage. I cannot fault the waitress staff, they were friendly and helpful, one of them put our wine in the freezer with a bucket of ice to cool it down as it was warm when served and brought us 2 cool glasses from the bar while we were waiting and did not charge us, great service here.We didn't want to say anything about the steak/food as we felt we had complained enough about the room and to be honest, the restaurant staff were lovely and who wants to be seen as the difficult customers..... not many Irish people I know. The hotel has a lot of things going for it, one of them it's staff, but it is not my experience of a 4 star hotel. I have just come back from Hotel Havis in Helsinki, now there's a genuine 4 star hotel, I know I paid a lot more for my stay but even if you avail of special offers you should still expect certain standards. I fear the recession has had its toll on Irish hotels and they are cutting corners to survive, I can hardly blame them but it doesn't mean I have to pretend that all is rosy and sometimes it's the little things that become noticeable, like a triple room with only 2 glasses and 2 cups and one bed missing the decorative throw on the bed, no shower caps for my mum to use. I think all would have went better if we had B&B and went elsewhere for our meal but hindsight is a great thing.Our stay was just ok.
Myself and my husband went there for our wedding anniversary, it was the nicest hotel we have been to yet. The staff were so lovely and the food was to die for. thanks for a great weekend
Lovely stay for very reasonable money. Rooms were spotless and breakfast was excellent
Great place, friendly staff. Really enjoyed my stay!
Magnificant views from room, effecient and helpful staff
Hotel was fantastic!! Staff were lovely and very friendly!! The only thing i would change are the pillows they were really uncomfortable. I love big soft pillows that u disappear into!!!! Other than that I would recommend anyone to stay there regards Jean
Excellant Hotel, beautiful room with fantastice view. I would highly reccomend
Excellent hotel and leisure centre. Our inclusive dinner was served in the Sinergie Restaurant. Superb food, as good as any top class restaurant anywhere. Kids menu was superb. Outstanding staff and service. Great value. We had a most enjoyable stay. Rating *****
I stayed in the clarion limerick with the children during the easter break,i found the staff to be very friendly and helpfull especially julia one of the waitresses,the food was beautiful and the games room for the kids great.i will definitley go back to the clarion which was superb,also the lidl website was great value compared to other sites and will use it again.
stayed one night midweek. nice bar area. had a good meal in restaurant. room was fine, bed spacious, on 14th floor. breakfast was good next morning. had late checkout 1pm. upon arrival they didnt have the reservation or couldnt find it, this didnt impact on us. there is only paid parking available %u20AC.8.50 for 24hrs, at least its beside the hotel, but I prefer not to have to pay for parking if I stay in a hotel. Overall, I would stay again in this hotel as it was nice.
This is a really nice Hotel, from the moment we checked in to the moment we checked out staff were both courtious ans extremely friendly and helpful ( makes such a difference ). For the price paid of 98 eueo per couple (2 Couples in party ) for DB&B it was such value for money , Dinner was superb as was Breakfast ! The only one thing I would say is that the Bed which was suppose to be a double was 2 single beds latched together (but this we have found not to unique to this Hotel ) .All in all a very enjoyable stay was had by the 4 of us. I would both highly recommend Lidl Breaks and this Hotel !
Just back from two nights in Limerick Clarion. Cannot fault the hotel in any way, the food in bar and restaurant were superb and staff were lovely, great value for money. I have to say tho that i was mugged and robbed in O'Connell street at 5pm the first day we arrived so obviously cannot recommend Limerick. be on your guard
The whole family enjoyed our break in the Clarion Steamboat Quay, The satuday night was quite busy which unfortunately had the bar/waiting staff under pressure and once we did have to re order the drinks that didn't arrive at the table. Sunday night was quieter and very relaxing, The hotel staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We had a lovely view of the river from our window on the 14th floor, Breakfast was lovely, Would recommend this as a great hotel for a break.
Lovely hotel. Good location.
Stayed here for one night, group of 12. Had a bit of trouble with check-in, as our booking seemed to have gone missing but this was quickly and efficiently dealt with by the friendly receptionist. Our meal was arranged for the dining room and the food was superb. The views are lovely from the dining room! The rooms are fabulous, very spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious. Overall I would say this is one of the best hotels I have stayed in, no complaints. The staff were all extremely helpful and friendly. In terms of value for money, the Clarion wins hands down!! The rest of the group are still raving about it, we will definitely be returning and recommending it to others. Thanks for a great weekend!!
Great value, food was fantastic, room clean and comfortable- would highly recommend if going to Limerick..
From the moment we arrived from the moment we left i could not say a bad word about this Hotel , all staff are friendly and courtious, food was excellent ,room was bright and extremely clean and the view was amazing as we were on the 12th floor. In short if your looking for a wonderful hotel at affordable prices i strongly reccomend this hotel !
For the money I paid, it was excellent value. The hotel staff were really friendly and helpful. The hotel was clean. The food was lovely but my husband would of liked a little more on the plate. Well done to The Clarion for a very enjoyable night away in Limerick....
excellent service by staff and very friendly only complaint room was a bit cold but overall very good
Hotel was lovely and in good walking distance from the town only 5 mins, the rooms were nice and big, only down fall i taught the bathroom was really cold, will stay there again
We had great weekend in the Clarion. Great value. Was bit sceptical about evening meal for %u20AC10. this was absolutely superb with great choice, terrific food & service Hotel itslf & staff were A1 No complaints. Will be booking further breaks with Lidil
Excellent all round, location good, rooms good, had evening meal which was excellent, service excellent and friendly. Lovely breakfast. Will stay again if heading to Limerick Helen and Richard, Kildare
Had a very enjoyable stay in the Clarion Limerick. Great location great views, all staff very pleasant, our second stay and will stay again.
Hotel very impressive. Great room view. Fantastic location. Kudos meal delicious. Huge selection of food for breakfast too.
Hotel was nice - really good meal included in our package. We were very pleased with the value of the break. Parking cost 8.50 overnight which is very steep considering there is no alternative.
Nice friendly staff, great view from the rooms, bar, restaurant and spa. Convenient near the city centre. Nice chinese bar food at good price. We had a good time.
booked family room not available when arrived .HAD TO PUT CAMP BED IN ROOM
Stayed in the Clarion last weekend and had a lovely time. It is in a great location on the banks of the Shannon. The food was excellent (breakfast and dinner in Kudos bar). The room was a good size, and very comfortable, and the staff are extremely pleasant and helpful. And for %u20AC35 per person B&B per night, you couldn't go wrong.
We found the room to be grubby as in the carpets were stained with what I hope was coffee stains. Not very 4 STAR to say the least... We got room service the first morning and when it arrived it was ice cold not a good start to the wkend. The restaurant was over priced for the meal we got. We ate out in a place called Freddys the following night not too far away from the hotel and they know how to serve a fantastic meal. And its the same price as this hotel. Great views and the staff were fine. We won't be back and I would not recommend this place to anyone. There are plenty of other hotels to stay in around this hotel...
we had an excellent time and the website is very easy to use. we will definetly use it again. great value for money
10 out of 10.Beautiful Hotel and everything was up to standard.. And i think that Lidl Breaks is great value for money..
The hotel is very lovely; however check in was slow - then to be told we had to pay for parking. We were told our meal was for one course only in the kudos bar so we had a little bit of an embarassing chat with staff in the restaurant in relation to the lidl offer, the starter was only ok, main course was really nice. The rooms were extremely warm which was lovely when we arrived but we were stifled during the night! The breakfast was great; lots of choice. On checking out again there was an embarassing chat with reception staff as our bill was not fitting the Lidl Break offer? I felt we had a lot of work to do in this hotel to avail of our offer; but no staff were rude in dealing with us and wouldn't like it to put anyone off staying there.
very friendly staff,good value for money,clean and comfortable rooms,good food and staff friendly to young children.We had a very enjoyable stay.
10 of us stayed for week/end all found it excellent value for money Rooms were clean & comfortable food was outstanding Found bar expensive Very central only drawback was it cost 15 euro to park car for the 2 days Forgot to mention we had dinner on friday night Excellent value at 25 euro for 4 course Regards Thomas Rice
stayed for 1 night, very happy with room and breakfast, great price and very easy access to shops in limerick.
found the hotel was very good , all staff very friendly and very helpful .parking not included though ,but there was a special there a weekly pass for 15 euro which allowed you to come and go., breakfast was very satisfing , leisure facitities were very clean ,but changing rooms a little smalll ,as was sauna and pool .really enjoyed my stay here with a fantastic view over city if you are positioned on that side
We were welcomed by a lovely girl at reception. Everything was fine, I wanted to take a shower so my husband deceided to go have a drink in the bar. 15 mins later he was back in the room minus a drink. He was completely ignored at the bar. This is not on!!!!!!!!!!!! We didnt eat there that night so we ended up not having the value for our booking. Very disapointing
I was stay one night in Clarion hotel in Limerick . The staff was nice, food grat, room little to small like for 4 star hotel. If you want to stay in this hotel you have to remember there is no free parking (you must pay around 20euro per day). And the most important in order request don t forget ask about room from east side (if you don t want to have scrab yard view)
Very Nice hote, great views, except scrappage yard at rear of hotel. Great food and plenty of choice for Breakfast. J Ireland
We had a one night stay B&B and found it was great value for money. The room was very comfortable, clean and well maintained. Breakfast was excellent and staff very friendly. Great view over the Shannon river and Limerick city. The location is excellent, just a short walk to the city centre. Will be availing of this offer again.
Overall a very enjoyable experience, friendly staff, lovely room, super breakfast, good facilities and good location. Only downside was the 10 euro charge for the car park. We could have parked on the street for free. It seems unfair to have to pay for the car park to stay at the hotel but would definitely stay again and recommend it to a friend.
Hotel was great value for money.Breakfast and Dinner was 5 star.Staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms clean and tidy.Lovely Hotel and in a central location ,will stay again.One small problem the charge for the parking. Lidl Breaks are great value and I will use them again.
Our stay at the Clarion Hotel was really enjoyable. The food was excellent and we were particularly impressed with the breakfast display. The staff were very polite and professional and we would be happy to stay there again. The Lidl breaks are a great concept and we will certainly be availing of them more in the future.
No problem giving this review as we were thrilled with the whole trip weather great lovely city and the Hotel was first rate very relaxed atmosphere staff food and hotel facilities were excellent we stayed for two nights just sorry we didn’t book a third would definitely visit the Clarion again. One little gripe though and that’s about having to pay for car parking.
This hotel was absolutlely fantastic the mannor we recieved on arrival was lovely and the rooms were lovely also .Well worth a return in the comming months !
Great view from room. And curtains with lining kept the light out well in the morning. Bed comfortable. Staff courteous and helpful. Enjoyed food at both dinner and buffet breakfast.
We stayed at the Clarion for 3 nights, 2 adults & 2 children. Room was very clean and comfortable however it was a bit on the small side. View was great! Had dinner in the bar on arrival which could have been better. Seabass was very small and well overpriced and Thai dish very oily, needless to say we did not eat there a second time. Overall we had a lovely stay! Great location and excellent value for money.
We stayed at the Clarion Limerick for the Aug bank hol weekend and it was great. We have 2 babies and the hotel supllied cots for them with little yellow ducks for each child which was a lovely touch. The famiily room was very big and our 22mnth old could get around it very easily without any dangers in her way. I think we must have had one of the best rooms in the hotel as the views were amazing both from the bedroom and bathroom windows. We were there for 3 nights and had breakfast there each morning which was just fabulous. The children really enjoyed getting their breakfast downstairs and getting to taste lots of different things. I cannot recoomend this hotel highly enough. The only downside was that there are no treatments available at this site for mammy!!!!!!
Overall the hotel was very good. The room was well laid out, the shower was really strong- which I greatly enjoyed. The view was not good as I thought it would be. It was bascially of some sort of rubbish area. One or two points to mention was the length of time it took to check in- I was waiting almost twenty minutes and I we found it hard to get the staffs attention during breakfast. Overall I was quite pleased with it and felt that the staff were very well informed.
Top class hotel! Restaurant was booked out so we had to eat in the bar but it was fantastic food so we didnt mind! Great service, staff were lovely and polite. Rooms were great! Will definitely recommend this hotel to others as it is in a great location!
well check in took ages then our room was not ready, had to wait 45 mins. we stayed in a deluxe room and its a tight squeeze the way its laid out and the bed was rock hard. the views were excellent, we were on the 8th floor and the view was fab that was the best part. shower was great also very powerfull. brekkie is self serve and the hot choices were limited, sausage,rasher,beand,pudding and scrambled egg. not good 2 mornins in a row. plenty of cereal choice and breads. i would go back but stay in different type room. also the hairdryer was great. lidl breaks was easy to navigate round and easy to fill in booking form.
We enjoyed our stay in the Clarion in Limerick. The staff were - without exception - very friendly and helpful. the accommodation was exactly as expected and was clean. Except for breakfast we did not dine in the hotel. Breakfast was good. My only quibble would be that there was a car parking charge that I was not aware of until our departure. Overall I would not hesitate to recommend the Clarion.
We thought our stay was excellent value,and hotel was very good, but having to pay for car park not so good!
The Clarion was top class - the room was lovely - bright, big & spotlessly clean. The food was lovely both the dinner and the breakfast. Location is good and I would recommend it highly to everyone. Great value for money with the Lidl breaks.
really enjoyed our stay hotel was lovely and staff very friendly and effecient food was lovely and excelent value for money i have recommended it to all my family and friends and hope to go again soon
Enjoyed our stay in the Limerick Clarion, great location,helpful and friendly staff, beautiful room with a view, excellent food enjoyed the pool sauna and jacuzzi. Limerick has plenty to see would stay there again Frank
enjoyed our stay.staff very helpful.breakfast on saturday over cooked to long in dishes sunday breakfast very good.
To be quiet honest I was most disappointed with the Leisure facilities, The pool was filthy and the changing rooms are very small. Having travelled with my Grandson I found this to be most disappointing. Having said that I found the rooms clean and OK. The reason I am giving it 3 stars is because of the food otherwise it would be a 2 star. The food in the Bar & Restaurant was very good and the service was excellent. Regards Michael Mulcahy
We had an extremely enjoyable stay. The break was great value and the food was fantastic. There were a large amount of 'hen's in the hotel that weekend, which didn't take from the whole experience. We had a beautiful hotel room with amazing views and would recommend this to anyone. The staff were also very pleasant.
the room i was in was good .good vew from the window looking out at the river. the staff was very good ,breakfast brought to the room was very good.every thing was gud, tommy oreilly i be staying their again thanks for everything.
My mum and I stayed in the Clarion for 2 nights in May and we had a fantastic time. We had a lovely room with a great view. The food was gorgeous, the Lidl breaks menu had a good selection! The staff were all very friendly and helpful too. I would definitely recommend this hotel!
everything in the hotel was very gud ,breakfast brought to the room was very very gud,staff was gud so thank u all ,Tommy oreilly
I was acctually the Clarion - Sligo we ended up going to and it was excellent. Great value for money and great food and service. Would book this way again Thanks
We had stayed at this hotel twice before so we knew what to expect and it didn't disaapoint. The menu in no way reflected that it was a cheap and cheerful break. The only problem we had was that, on check-in, we were told that breakfast was until 11.00 but that applies only on saturdays and sundays, so when we went down for breakfast at 10.15 on easter Bank Holiday Monday, breakfast was finished. some signage at the dining room might be appropriate. They did make us a cooked breakfast but it was an uncomfortable affair, in the empty dining room, while they cleared up around us. One of the reception staff was outstanding, I think his name was Brendan (.....he was the guy with the glasses.) he's one of the best front-of-house people i've ever come across, a very genial host. The room was great and the bed was HUGE! We'll definitely go again.
lovely hotel.staff very friendly and helpful.good leisure centre.a nice place to stay
Great hotel very close to everything. Dinner was wonderful and a great selection at the breakfast buffet. Would have no hesitation in staying here again.
Lovely hotel, friendly staff, fantastic food and overall incredible value for money
I was a bit disappointed with this hotel. We arrived on a Monday in June but the restaurant was closed on Mondays which I thought was a bit ridiculous at this time of year. Bar food was very Thai/Chinese style which was o.k. if you like this kind of food but you hadn't much choice if you didn't. The staff in general in the restaurant (when it was open) were pretty lax and seemed more interested in clearing tables and wandering around than attending to their guests. Food was o.k. The hotel had no car parking facilities itself - there was a carpark very convenient to the hotel but you had to pay extra for that. I don't think I would be returning to the Clarion in Limerick again.
