When it comes to character and characters Cork is full. This hotel had charm as well. Typical of hotels of this age, bits are falling off here and there, giving Housekeeping a lot to do, no doubt. Super staff at reception and Concierge. Good restaurant and bar to boot and smack in the city centre. I did note the window... More

In a nutshell, this is a hotel with a lovely foyer in a central location but with very basic accommodation and food. For a basic stay, go for it but if you are looking for something more than that, the hotel doesn't offer value for money. Stayed on a 2B&B1D package in a superior room. I went for a dinner... More

Rooms - We were put in rooms above the function room. There was a wedding on both nights of our stay and we got no sleep with the... More

We booked a room at this hotel via the internet. Looking at the pictures the rooms looked great and very luxury, but by arrival we found a old, out dated not fully functional and dirty room (spiderwebs on the ceiling, TV not fully working, ect. We ordered breakfast (via room service) and it was very poor and expensive. Overcooked Irish... More

A family wedding was the reason for my stay at the Imperial. It was my first time there and I will definitely return. It is a beautiful hotel with lovely character and old world charm which I love in a hotel. The staff were extremely helpful,the food was excellent. I did not get to the Spa area but I can... More

The Imperial Hotel were very understanding and facilitative regarding an emergency I had and an amendment I had to make to my booking. Both the hotel and Booking.Com provided an excellent service. I would definitely recommend this hotel and I am looking forward to returning there. I would also recommend Booking.com and congratulate both for excellent interagency co-operation. Camilla Marks...
