Busy city center hotel with character and charm. Service was gracious and friendly - from reception to the restaurants. Was confirmed in a superior class room but was advised about wedding event and potential noise. They moved me to a quieter standard room facing the street. It was fine. Not large but comfortable. The fixtures and furniture is a bit... More

When I first walked into the foyer of this hotel I was captivated by the old world charm, opulent furnishings and hanging chandeliers. The staff were welcoming so I was expecting a great stay. My room was large but I had a problem with the bathroom tap continually running all night long. I rang reception twice about it but no... More

Of the 5 hotels visited in 8 days this was the most expensive. Just like the previous hotel the parking was a place out of the way ( about a mile away drive and 500 metres walk and cost 9 euros a day). There was a lot of people coming in noisily at 1 am, 2am 3 am and finally... More

We have recently returned from our first trip to Cork and are so pleased we stayed at the Imperial Hotel. From the minute we arrived in reception the staff were very welcoming and informative (they gave us lots of tips to enjoy our first visit to the area). The hotel is in an excellent position, rooms were very comfortable and... More

I cannot commend the staff at the Imperial hotel Cork enough. From the moment we booked our stay until checking out we were looked after with the very best of care. We got a great deal for our spa stay for €139pps for bed, breakfast, evening meal and €50 towards a spa treatment which was bliss. The spa is tucked... More

Fantastic first impression from Lauren at Reception, the kind of sincerity and charisma that you can't learn. I can't speak highly enough of the service all throughout this hotel - we had dinner in the restaurant which was delicious, afternoon tea which was so tastefully presented and such high quality. Catherine in breakfast was so friendly, and funny! Just what... More

I recently stayed in the Imperial hotel Cork. While the staff were lovely and friendly I was very disappointed with the room. There was an unbelievably strong odour in the room. It was there constant .It was like a mixture of sewer and gas. I was quiet ill in the morning, so much so that we left asap, I felt... More
