As a canadian, I purchased a weekend gift certificate for a family member living in Ireland. the purchase was made as a Christmas gift in 2009. The purchase was made from Mr. Michael Hannafin at the Windsor Inn. The gift certificate was never sent and after several international phone calls and emails, Mr. Michael Hannafin promised to refund my money.... More

The Windsor Inn was the kind of place you want to like simply because of the good location and the lovely staff....however, you cannot ignore the facilities needing a facelift. The place is a bit dingy. There are loads of stairs which makes dragging your luggage up to the room a little tough. The room was huge and seemingly recently... More

Went down to Cork for a friend's 30th recently and booked into the Windsor. The main attraction was the price which I thought was extremely reasonable considering the central location. On arrival we were warmly greeted by one of the owners who was more than helpful and carried our bags up to our room. He also pointed us in the... More

Friends advised us to book the weekends for hotels in Ireland and we chose the Windsor Inn as their website paints a somewhat rosy picture and a great price. However, we were disappointed with the location : not the most savoury street in Cork. Our room at the back on the top floor was somewhat dated and old and lugging... More

The main reason I can't give this hotel a better review is the major stains (what looked like blood) on the bed sheets. Another negative is the lack of an elevator. In addition, although the location is close to the city center and bus station, the street the inn is on doesn't have a great feel to it, especially at... More
