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.

Great location, very central. Excellent friendly staff and first class waiter service for all meals on a special deal breakfast and evening meals basis. Front of house staff so friendly and helpful. Our room was very comfortable, but could do with air conditioning.

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

Stayed here for a night as we were going to the marquee. Our room was filled with gorgeous antique furniture & bathrooms have sinks on big pedestals with underfloor heating although the concierge told me there aren't many of these room left as most have been recently refurbished to a modern standard. There are pieces of amazing antique furniture &... More

This is a great central location for shops and restaurants. Lovely building with a great spa area. I found the staff very friendly and helpful. I recommend the stone massage after a busy day shopping followed by a nice meal in one of the lovely city's restaurants.

Part of cork's history, The Imperial is elegant but retains warmth and charm thanks to its very helpful staff. Rooms are a good size, with standard amenities and a high standard of cleanliness. The concierge has a wealth of local knowledge. You are a few steps away from good restaurants, local pubs and shopping areas. Breakfast is excellent and very... More
