Nice and modern decorated hotel. Friendly receptionnists. Short walk to city center. Spotless bedroom and bathroom (no bath), pity missing a fridge or a mini bar in the room of 34 m2! Good Safe box (ideal to put ipad), nice tv, matresses were good..and we were able to use their free carpark. However the spa is not really welcoming with...

Really enjoyed the hotel and it is within walking distance of King John's Castle. Very nice and clean rooms and the restaurant was delicious! There was an underground parking lot with lots of available spaces.

I would highly recommend this hotel. The room was large, clean, inviting, very comfortable & was ready when we arrived. Parking was available as promised. Very close to King John's Castle. Restaurants nearby were good but very limited.

When certain aspects of a stay so impress, it seems rather churlish to nit-pick about design detail, so 'excellent' it is, principally for the service. All front-desk staff were first-rate. On arrival, with the 'receptionist' tied up, the manager, from afar, saw us approaching the desk and made a bee-line for us. This attention to basics was also reflected in...

My husband and I stayed here 2 nights, within a few days time. Absolut was a meeting place for family and friends coming from the states for my nieces wedding at Adare Manor. We pre booked rooms in advance and they were ready for us when we checked in. The next day we moved on to Adare for a 3...

I cannot recommend the Absolute as a party venue highly enough. From the planning of my party at the early stages with Yvonne the Events Planner to the staff on the night nothing was to much trouble for them. The room itself was decorated tastefully and having a bar attached to the room really made it private and special. The...

Stayed here two nights with a Groupon deal, and absolutely loved it. Excellent service, very clean rooms, luxurious furnishings, low noise level where we were, comfortable bed.... Would certainly come back and would recommend to others. Felt safe going out at night as well.

Im so disappointed we have let you down. Sorry We rarely miss in so many areas and this has given a bad impression overall. Regarding the cash payment issue we do not accept cash without credit or debit card. Bills may be settled in cash but to check in a verified credit or debit card must be presented. Its also...

Absolute is a modern, agreeably priced hotel on the river. As with most city hotels, getting to it is either painless or stressful depending on the direction from which you are coming, but the concierge was wonderfully helpful with local directions and maps. Our room mostly faced the adjacent wing but we watched the sunset over King John's tower. The...
