General manager Donnacha Hurley said, “‘I could not be prouder, it is fantastic for the staff, we have been nominated for the last three years, so to bring it home is just a great boost to all here. We are the number one hotel in Limerick on TripAdvisor, so coupled with this, it is the recognition that keeps us focused on the customer on and our values.” The hotel is evaluated and benchmarked by independent professional judges that covertly audit the hotels during the year.
