The room was gorgeous and very comfortable. Breakfast really good. All the staff were very friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. We had a meal in the restaurant which again was nice with very pleasant staff

Myself & my family stayed for 2 nights recently in this hotel and I couldn't recommend it enough. The staff were all so helpful & couldn't do enough to make our stay fun, relaxing & enjoyable! Even though there was a wedding in the hotel on both nights during our stay, they didn't impede on service we received or enjoyment... More

This hotel was horrible from the moment I rang to book. The receptionist I spoke to didn't want to know about any requests I had so I asked her to put me on the phone to the accommodation manager who proceeded to hang up on me. When I arrived the room wasn't ready so I was offered tea and scones... More

Room was very shabby with stains on the floor. Bad smell in the room & room was very cold even with heating on. There was a leak over the shower and the floor towels etc got soaked just before we left. Breakfast only average, won't be staying here again.

Emailed the wonderful Katie in reservations. I received a very prompt reply and she was so very helpful and friendly and really couldn't have done any more for... More

One night mid week stay. Staff pleasant & friendly. Big bedroom & ensuite. Large foyer. Pool & gym. Good beer & bar food. Fish fresh ( chips hard & burnt). Great full Irish breakfast. Better than many cork city centre hotels. Good value at €110.

Friendly and very helpful staff. Our room was comfortable with all amenities. Would benefit from a little tlc. We were unable to use spa as it was being refurbished, a notice on the website would have been helpful. Overall a pleasant stay and we would be happy to return.

We had a one night stay here when we visited Cork recently. In retrospect, we were fortunate that we had booked a property with parking which was situated just outside of the city, as the traffic in the city centre (for non locals) looked like something best avoided. The reception staff gave us valuable advice about leaving our car at... More
