We recently stayed here for three nights and was delighted with the overall ambiance of the place. It was very clean and comfortable and we would have given it an excellent rating except for the excessive noise starting at 0600. If you can deal with noise in the morning, this is a very nice place to stay for the price!

Very nice hotel right in the middle of Cork. Very clean, well apportioned, and a very friendly staff. Live music right around the corner at Connaughts. Must see the Trinity Church about 200 meters down the road. Hard to find... We drove by it 3 times before we found it... It's yellow and on the left hand side.

The hotel staff were very friendly and responsive to our needs. Breakfast buffet had lots of selection. Our room was a bit noisy and the staff offered to move us, but we declined to avoid the hassle. The noise wasn't too bad with the windows closed. It was very clean, nice location, and offered coffee, tea, milk, and sugar in... More

Fine hotel, good location. We left meds in the room on check out, the hotel contacted me by phone and sent the meds special to our next stop. We received them the next morning. Service like this needs to be complemented and advertised to fellow travelers.

Took a city break this August to Cork city and chose a two-night package at the Imperial Hotel. It was excellent in every respect especially the ambience, friendliness, menu choice - quality and value. Package deals can be 'hit and miss' but this one could not have been better with no corners cut and still offering great value for money.... More
