My Daughter's & Son in Law's Reception & Wedding Meal was in the Imperial last Saturday. I have to say that we were vey impressed by the quality of the meal,service & sheer devotion to duty. Lorna, Elaine & Jim are unrivalled when it comes to providing a top notch service. We should have no problem in advising friends &... More

Great central hotel close to all Corks attractions. Clean and comfortable with great staff who were very helpful. We arrived early for check in and was able to get into the room earlier than the advised time which was greatly appreciated after a long overnight journey.

Myself and my friends recently stayed for two nights, b&b at the Imperial Hotel, Cork. This hotels greatest asset is their well trained, very friendly, hard working staff, I did not meet one staff member who disappointed me and this is a rarity these days. The staff couldn't do enough for us during our stay and we would definitely recommend... More

This hotel is very well done. The room was large and nicely furnished. The reception staff was efficient and helpful. They have secure parking, although it is a couple of blocks away. The location is within easy walking distance of many restaurants, bars, and shops. I would definitely go back if I every return to Cork.

I only booked this hotel because I couldnt get into the Clarion. This is a nice hotel in a great location but for the same price I would prefer the 4 star Clarion. The reception staff and porters were very good. One member of the bar staff couldnt have been more unhelpful if he tried when I enquired about something.... More

My sister had her wedding at this hotel, the food was amazing and the staff were very attentive the day of the wedding and at the drinks reception the day after. The guests at the wedding were very complementary about the reception venue and staff. The centre pieces, decorations from the bar to the reception and bridal suite were all... More

I was at a wedding reception at the Imperial last Saturday. It was fabulous. The stairs leading up to the dining room were lit with candles & the room was beautifully presented. The staff was so helpful & attentive to all of us. The meal was beautiful presented & so tasty - I couldn't find fault with anything. I would... More

I stayed for two nights, arriving on Thursday. The first impression on walking in is of a delightful 'old world' environment and of calm and cheerful efficiency. When I arrived my room was not ready but the matter was handled with the utmost charm and courtesy, and in fairness, I hadn't given them a time of arrival. About 10 minutes... More

One of those hotels that have been around for over a century, being added onto over the years so that sections of the hotel are only accessible by specific lifts. Whether one can navigate by foot around the entire hotel without going back down to the lobby first, I have no idea. Didn't take the time to explore the possibility.... More

You can't ask for a more central location in Cork and the hotel has a lot of old style charm. A few quibbles - some easily fixed, some less so - diminish the experience a little. The easy to fix ones include improving the TV and radio service. A handful of TV channels and no access to any worthwhile radio... More
