Great location as a stop over before leaving from Cork, airport. Wonderful service when I arrived at my room and it was not ready. Upgraded instantly. Thank goodness because the other room was really, really small for the charge. However, the upgraded room had a very strong odour that did not go away, even with the window open. Some tiles... More

The hotel is quite traditional but it is well kept and the level,of service was really good. The hotel is really central however the parking is off site so about a ten minute walk to the car park. You can park at front of hotel to drop / pick up bags and the concierge are really helpful.

This hotel is in a fantastic location. Parking is a slight hassle as it's not onsite , but once the car is parked you don't need it again until you leave. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms are tasteful but are quite small but we didn't spend much time in the room, more time exploring Cork. One night... More

Hotel is in a great location, we shared a twin room which was clean but small, it was on the first floor facing the main road which meant it was very noisy when the window was open. The staff were very friendly both in reception area and the bar. The breakfast was great with plenty of choice. Loved the fact... More

A good hotel with friendly staff, my room was big, with a double and a single bed for just me. The bathroom is very dated and would really benefit from an update to modern standard. Having a room with a connecting door I could understand every word my "neighbours" were saying. As well as their alarm at 4 am as... More

Friendly and helpful staff, Magnificent food and incredible beds. Highly recommend a visit at reasonable prices. Central location within walking distance of all shops. From our arrival to departure we felt whatever we wished for could be accomodated. Great to see that service and standards are available.

The building and the atmosphere are great, the staff is very professional. The room was big, with a queen sized bed. Fast wi-fi in the hotel, great breakfast, irish or continental style. I had an excellent stay, the only thing to be improved was cleanness of bathroom and the attention to small things (i.e. vanity kit missing from the second... More
