    I loved the central location, and the staff was very polite.

    The breakfast was very expensive. Their was only one lift for a hotel of its size. We also got no sleep between 3am and 6 30am due to a some blokes next door to us being very .

    It was a beautiful hotel,the view over Cork city from our room was amazing,will definately use this hotel again and ask for same room(not telling room no. You'll all want it} Our room wasn't ready on arrival and we were given tea/coffee in lobby.

    For such a nice hotel breakfast was very average.You will experience a good bit of street noise

    Very convenient location

    You have to pay for parking, and the car park is not convenient. I was very disappointed as there was no bath in my room, but a cramped shower which you had to switch off the water to shampooo your hair as there was no room to maneouvre. I had not been informed that there was no bath in the room and feel it is unfair to charge the same amount for the room I had as with a room that has a bath in it. Breakfast was also not included in the hefty price of €89.00, and the receptionest was less than polite when I pointed this out.

    Its location to town centre. Staff were friendly and efficient. Room functional, clean, and comfortable.

    I personally prefer shower seperate from bath, getting in and out can prove dangerous.

    Room and ensuite was very clean. Most impressive. Staff at check in were very helpful.

    Room was small and view was awful. Bar had no atmosphere and drink was expensive.

  • Older travelers

    I liked this hotel as it was very central for my needs,good parking cloase to the hotel which is essential and offers a great discount on parking, the reception staff was very friendly as I needed directions for a particular hospital and the advice she gave me was second to none I certainlt would recommend this hotel in the future to my friends and if I was staying in Cork again I certainly would stay at this hotel.There was nothing wrong with this hotel
