We stayed here three nights this time round, and couldn’t get over how efficiently the place was run. The staff were amazing! From the bellboy to the receptionists.... And everyone behind the scenes…. A particular mention to the lovely Sinead and Michelle at the front desk, who made us feel so welcome. Nothing was too much bother. Only one gripe... More

This hotel is fantastic, I had been recommended to stay here by my parents who have been stayed there numerous times over the years and I was not disappointed. The staff were the friendliest I have come across, the two girls who dealt with us on reception were so helpful, very friendly and welcoming. The porter Christy mirrored this and... More

We stayed 3 nights in June, and really enjoyed our stay. Our room was spotlessly clean and the breakfast on offer was really good. The hotel itself is also really beautiful, lovely old world charm. Would really recommend as its prime Cork City location and also a great base for travelling around Cork and Kerry. Well done and many thanks... More

We stayed in this hotel last weekend for a short trip to Cork. I was extremely impressed with the staff and the facilities. The bar, restaurant and spa were great and they even put of a free shuttle to Live at the Marquee for us to see Lionel Richie.

I recently stayed in The Imperial Hotel for three nights b&b, initially upon arrival I was unsure about my decision as it was quite expensive for a midweek stay in my opinion. That said it was mid summer and there was a lot going on in Cork at the time. The parking though off site was convenient, I initially worried... More

Good hotel in centre of town - wish our room had air con as room was so hot. The lobby, bar and restaurant were very old school elegant glamour. Room was quite generic for the price. The spa is by far the best selling point the infinity pool is great with steam rooms and relaxation suite.

Lovely hotel, staff were friendly and helpful. Located in the city centre of Cork it was convenient. My friend and I stayed one night because we were attending the Ellie Goulding concert in the Marquee. The hotel offered a shuttle bus to and from the venue. The room had some nice features and was cosy. For breakfast was a buffet... More
