Lovely hotel with a great location. We ate in the restaurant one evening and it was gorgeous! Excellent customer service throughout the whole stay - would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. There is coffee station in reception which is great to get an early coffee and snack. Breakfast was lovely with a great selection.

Staff lovely, but under pressure. Is it a management issue? I was there for a congress and they couldn't cope with the numbers of delegates. Long queues for food. Slow getting to till. Food was tasty. No problems there but slowness of service frustrating. I moved to meet friends and no seating available. Had to sit on edge of someone's...

It first appears to be a nice smart hotel but it needs a lot of work to get me back. Terrible service from the bar, slow service no bar snacks. Had to use a vending machine on the second floor. Unacceptable for a hotel charging these prices. Later in the bar wired 15 mins to be served and gave up....

This is a lovely hotel. Quiet. Central. Friendly. Reasonable. I went for a special occasion and Siobhan upgraded me to an amazing room. I'll never stay anywhere else. I've stayed in a few hotels in Cork and nothing comes near the experience here. Super breakfast too and lovely staff.
