Stayed here late last year and found the hotel perfectly positioned for a night on the town. Great atmospheric bar cosy rooms friendly staff. Car park a little far away but so what. Didn't ruin a great weekend away. Would definitely return

just back from a wonderful stay in the IMPERIAL HOTEL. Staff and service just fantastic. Dinner in Pembroke restaurant absolutely divine. In particular Lauren in reception,Anita and Rebecca in the restaurant exemplified the very best of service that one could expect . Great location for a city visit and made our wedding anniversary extra special.

This lovely historic hotel with period decor to die for is nevertheless truly modern where it needs to be. We had a great room with huge bed, soft sheets and lots of pillows. The bathroom was spotlessly clean and modern. Set in the heart of the city with easy access to all that Cork has to offer I wouldn't stay... More

Just returned to the States after a 5-day stay at The Imperial Hotel in Cork! I definitely recommend this place!!! Location is walking distance to shopping, sites, dining and pubs! Hotel staff was very, very friendly and accommodating! Rooms were actually bigger than I anticipated. Bathrooms were also spacious and up-to-date.

We were there with a group from 5 to 83 years. The hotel sits in the middle of everything. The staff was wonderful, warm and friendly. We ate in the restaurant 8 times and each time the food was excellent. (A surprise!). I have read other reviews complaining about the bathrooms, but I disagree. Each room is different and the...

From the moment we arrived through the moment we departed, it was a most enjoyable stay. The hotel personnel were very friendly and accommodating, especially regarding a special need we encountered. Everyone was most gracious and pleasant. Whatever you asked, they immediately set about providing. In the Pembroke Restaurant, in particular, Luke took excellent care of our smallest desires. He...

Very centrally located hotel, ideal for shopping and heading out. The only draw back is that the car park is a short walk away and you have to pay extra for that which I didn't realise at the time of booking. Staff were excellent, room really nice, free newspaper in the morning which was a nice touch. Good atmosphere in... More
