We arrived late after the kitchen had closed. We had some drinks and Daniel, the bartender, brought us complementary food. That's just one example of the great service we received. The front desk was ready for us and had our keys ready for any easy check in. We would stay here again for sure.

This was an average hotel, rooms were adequate, door used a small key below latch, difficult to use, some doors used key card, friendly staff, leaky bath room sink faucet and toilet was annoying all night, breakfast was good.

I stayed here for two nights and it was a great place to stay in relation to the cost. Not a fancy place, but comfortable with great and friendly staff, great pub and food on the premises and rooms were comfortable. So close to blarney castle and the city, great place to stay as an introduction to cork city.

Perfect location if you do not intend going to the City that is as there is easy access to it. Staff are very nice and nothing is a bother to them they are very helpful and friendly. Rooms are basic but clean and spacious. Meeting room was large bright and comfortable. Plenty of choice at the breakfast buffet.

Many thanks for your review. Whilst we are about 3km from the City centre as you point out it is approx €7 in a taxi - less than €2 per person for four. The benefits are free parking, bigger rooms and you're half way to Blarney!

We were staying at this place for 1 night, on our way to Dublin. The reception staff was nice. We got our room at the end of the hall. Everything was good until the evening! The shower drain was so blocked that I have to turn on and off the water to prevent a flooding when taking a quick shower...
