Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My daughter and her college friends stayed during summer 2021 and they found everything to be clean, spacious and in good working order and had a great time. So for Mothers Day she booked for the two of us, using her own money, and when I read the reviews I was dreading i to be honest. However, we arrived and got a space in the car park, went up to reception and a nice man gave us the cards for room 216 and we headed up wondering what we would find. 😀

I have to say, we were both pleasantly surprised to find a very clean, yet compact, double room, large bathroom, radiator was on, all lights and sockets worked, it was grand for the one night. The window is a bit dodgy and took a bit of twisting to close it but look, the room was cheap. We met lovely housekeepers who held lifts for us and the reception staff could not have been more friendly. The lift and staircases were spotlessly clean. No smell of smoke or the sound of kitchen fans keeping us awake. I would just say that the hand sanitiser stations could do with refilling, but I suppose it's not compulsory for hotels to have them any more.. We ate up the road at Hamptons, drank in the Savoy and had brunch at House. Both within easy walking distance, literally 2 minutes away.

I liked it for what it was, and more importantly, had a lovely Mother's Day with my daughter.

I felt lucky I was on my own as the room space was tiny. The bathroom wasn’t the greatest in terms of lighting, the shower head I couldn’t reach, no mixer tap... The TV is tiny for where it’s positioned, you can access the wardrobe if someone is sat on the desk... anyway, not the most modern place, but suitable for one night in your own.

Breakfast was really standard.

Oh and I don’t think I would return as there was no parking available.

The Pier Hotel offered a comfortable stay in the city centre. I was fortunate to have a room overlooking River Shannon with King John's Castle in the background.
There are WiFi and lifts available. Unfortunately no breakfast option was available at the time of my visit due to Covid regulations.
Parking available at Howley’s Quay Car Park.

Clean housekeepers came daily to change bedding give clean towels toilet rolls tea coffee and milk.room had tea and coffee and a tv limited channels but good for short stay. A stone throw away from centre easily accessible. We stayed for New Years and was lovely. The bar area downstairs was lovely really nice atmosphere.

We had everything we needed to get ready for the great nights out.
Thank you for a great stay!!!

This hotel was so awful that we cancelled our booking for a second night as soon as we arrived. Then, we were charged for a two night stay, instead of just one, PLUS another one night stay! When I contacted the hotel I was told I had cancelled too late to warrant a refund (I cancelled the second night well within the time period allowed). I reiterated that I had effectively been charged for three nights instead of just one, and was told that the. Accounts person would only be able to look at it on Monday (I phoned the previous Thursday, was promised a call back - which I didn’t get, so phoned again on Friday). I then decided to get Booking.com involved, as I had booked (and cancelled) through them. I was then contacted by the hotel and told I would receive a refund for two nights, which I am happy to say has been done. However, I can’t help feeling that if I had not contacted Booking.com it is very probable I would not have been refunded.
As for the actual hotel, it was very dated, smelly, the room overlooked a garbage covered roof, the tv was the size of a smallish computer monitor, the beds were extremely uncomfortable, and the bed linen had definitely seen better days. The only redeeming feature is the walk over the bridge and along the River to cross back over the River, you pass King John’s Castle and St.Mary’s, and there is a lovely little pub called Katy Daly’s Heritage Pub and Kitchen. We had a very good meal there (the pub and restaurant in the hotel were closed due to COVID), and enjoyed the added bonus of a banjo and fiddle duo providing live music. The highlight of our stay in Limerick!

This crowd wouldn't organise a piss up in a brewery, we rang them, booking 2 rooms, one double room and a family room. We asked them beforehand did the family room sleep 4 people and they said yes so we went ahead with that and arrived to the hotel only to find out that the family room only had 3 single beds and the double room was a disgrace, no beds dressed, dirty bed covers, dirty towels thrown on the ground, it was a joke. They gave us another room with 2 double beds for the "same price" to make up for the big inconvenience but they had the cheek to take an additional 100 euro out of our card the day after we had checked out. I'll never stay in this kip again. Having the nerve and cheek to take more money out of our card after we were told we'd be changed to another room for the same price. Can see why this place is cheap. You get what you pay for at the end of the day, you'll be screwed over in the end. Avoid this place with your life!!

I thought I'd take the gamble and book a night here based on the assumption that it has what they describe as a river view. What a joke. My view was of the side road and if you bend you neck hard enough you can see a bit if the river.
The rooms are pretty awful. The shower is stinking and I was almost afraid to turn the dial to turn it on with the blackness in the crevices. The door doesn't close properly and water goes everywhere.
The seat in my room was disgusting, ever here if cleaning it properly with a brush and soap.
There is no sound proofing and I can here the guy next door taking a piddle like hes in my room.
The room furniture is really bad and you don't even get a basic bedside table. I mean come on. Honestly I could get so much better for the sake of an extra tenner. Wouldn't recommend or be back.

Charged €115 for a double room, very small, shower didn’t work freezing cold water. no food available when we checked in at 6pm on a Saturday night. One extremely small tight parking space left so had to go to neighbouring multi-storey. Good location but would only stay if absolutely necessary again

We were due to stay at this hotel in a few weeks time & had booked a room prior to the Ed Sheeran show dates being announced, meaning that we had paid the lower rate. We were informed that our reservation had been cancelled with no given explanation. We can only assume that the accommodation has noticed the nightly rate we were paying and seen they can exploit the number of guests looking to stay in Limerick & therefore cancelled us in order to make more money off of another guest.

Booked two double rooms. One room had no lock on the toilet door. The other room had the most horrendous smell of sewerage, so much that a staff member physically stepped back from the door. The cleaning supervisor told us that the room always smelled during winter months because of pipe problems. After much discussion, management changed our room. We went out and on our return we discovered they had removed all of our personal items from the room without our permission. They said that another person had that room booked and there was nothing they could do. The only option was to sleep in the sewerage smelling room. We refused to and had to drive 3hrs home late at night with two children. Appalling service and disgusting conditions. Avoid at all costs.
