Stayed at the Absolute Hotel in Limerick last week on a business trip. Arrived at the hotel at 8am and greeted warmly. Plus, my room was available so had the chance to recharge after the overnight flight. Front desk attendant offered to give us local information when we were ready. I'd describe the hotel as boutique. Rooms are comfortable with...

This was our third stay at this hotel and we continue to be impressed. The rooms are immaculate, large, light and stylish. The river and night views are lovely. All the staff are impeccably polite whilst being friendly and helpful. Breakfast was delicious as was supper. I hope it will not be long before we return

My parents, my three siblings and I stayed in the Absolute recently and it was very bit as fabulous as I remembered from a previous trip. The other members of my family had never stayed there but were most impressed by the warm welcome, calm and courteous professionalism, fabulous rooms and delicious meals.

A great hotel, in a nice location. The staff make the difference here, everyone is friendly and genuinely want you to have a good experience. As the title suggests try a cocktail overlooking the river.....I can recommend the cosmopolitans made by Andy, who has plenty of friendly banter and knows his cocktails.

We parked up in the gated car park, had a really friendly and helpful check in, including where to go, what to see and where to eat (which I found refreshing, in a contemporary hotel). The room was spacious and clean with all mod cons. I would happily recommend.

We stayed here for our first night in Ireland. The room was cozy but modern. The best part was the shower-the rain shower head was tall enough that my 6'6'' husband could fit all the way under, and provided the perfect hot shower after a long flight. Nice views of the city! Hotel staff was accommodating and very friendly.

So I'm sorry and disappointed that we left you underwhelmed. We clearly have had some tough feedback from guests when we've let them down or not met their expectations but I've never had the outdated comment......until now. Clearly, there should have been no issues with the lighting and power plugs. We have a system whereby there is a master switch...
