I stayed here for a few night for work and the Hotel itself is very beautiful. The rooms are large and well looked after. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the breakfasts are delicious. I would highly recommend this Hotel if you plan on staying central in Cork City.

The Imperial is a jewel in the heart of Cork. I love it's art deco cafe, central location and oh so comfortable beds - and bed linen. I've stayed several times now will and will continue to as the greats deals come up.

Well located hotel in city centre, with lovely "old world" feel, and all mod cons . Bar and bistro facilities are comfortable/cosy and great for meeting friends etc. Room was well kitted out and beds comfortable. I minor gripe- breakfast buffet was very disorganised with long queues. Staff were busy trying to clear tables but Management should at least have... More

Excellent hotel right in the heart of Cork City. Had a great two night stay on B/B basis. Would very strongly recommend this Hotel on many many levels - staff, food, atmosphere, location and facilities, all were excellent. The break was very relaxing.

Beautiful period hotel located in Cork city centre. Some rooms seem to be nicer than others though. Ours was OK, but really needed a face-lift. Staff were very helpful. Heater was broken so reception gave us an electric one which did the job. Hairdryer was also broken. We got an offer with spa treatments included which was very good value... More
