nothing but praise for this hotel. From the moment we arrived to our departure the staff could not help enough. As a heads up, if you want dinner in the hotel pre book as it is very busy [we went on a Saturday night ] .

Stayed here for a weekend break, enjoyed Cork city but would not return to this hotel, The only advantage of staying here is the location, it is just across the bridge from the main shopping area. The hotel rooms are basic and small the noise from adjoining rooms is very loud, you can hear a normal conversation from next door,... More

Just a stones throw from the main shopping streets. Reception staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. Rooms very acceptable and beds very comfortable. Great value for money. Car parking, although chargeable, is very proximate.

We stayed for one night at the Gresham Metropole in Cork. The location is fairly central, less than 5 minutes walk to the centre of the shopping area. The hotel is an older hotel, the lobby area was nice and the bar was cosy. As it is an older hotel, you can hear a bit of noise, creaking floor boards... More

Stayed here for a weekend recently with a friend, all the staff were really friendly and helpful and the location was good, approx 20 mins in a taxi from the airport, I think we paid about 18 euro each way. Hotel was really close to the centre for shopping, bars and places to eat. Breakfast in the hotel was nice,... More

I stayed here with my partner recently. The hotel is in a very central location and has a lovely exterior. The public areas of the hotel are very plush and furnished to a high standard. There was some confusion about our booking at the reception desk but it was soon resolved and we were given the keys to our room.... More

It is very well located just a short walk from the train station and beside all the shops for great retail therapy!! There is car parking next door to the hotel... More

Check in was efficient and friendly. Public areas in the hotel are furnished to a high standard. Unfortunately, the same cant be said for the room I was given. Room was very bland and dull and would not entice you to spend anytime in it. Room could do with a new colour scheme / furniture. No hot water in the... More
