Metropole could do better

The hotel is in a very convenient location only a short walk across to the main shopping street (Patricks st) in the city centre. The staff were very courteous, the facilities of the pool and the gym were top rate. There is a €7.50 charge for overnight parking in the car park beside the hotel, it is recommended to get your ticket from hotel reception prior to entering the car park. I only have one issue with this hotel, there was very limited hot water in the shower, in fact there was little hot water, instead I had to do with a tepid shower.Overall the hotel was value for money but basic enough.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Come out of the hotel, turn left and walk 50 yards to bridge street, turn left again, over the river and you are at the start of the main shopping area.
