My partner and I decided to bring my mother who's 76 years old and her friend to this hotel for dinner to celebrate her birthday, the restaurant at the back of the hotel was more akin to a staff canteen with it's tubular steel framed chairs and spartin decorated walls, although it gives a view over the river which distracted...

I have wanted to stay in this hotel for many years and my opportunity came this week. It used to be the boarding and alighting point for the old Slattery's bus service to London thirty something years ago. My first impression of the reception was not awe inspiring but it still had a sense of former opulance to it. Check... More

Great price, superb rooms, lovely food and friendly staff. I will definitely be returning. Pool and gym access is a nice bonus too. Nicely situated to the local bars and city centre. I have to write 200 words so heres an extra sentence.

I read other people's reviews on this and wonder what their aim is in life?! Stayed here for 3 nights over St Patricks weekend - got a fabulous deal on lastminute.com, considering the prices everywhere else was charging. Location is 100%, exactly where you want to be - book it for this if nothing else. Don't understand the reviews about... More

Our room was tiny, loud, and dirty. The bathroom seemed like it hadn't been cleaned. When we complained to the front desk the quickly moved us to a even louder room facing the street which never stopped. Breakfast was including in our room rate and it was also a disappointing. The fried eggs were like rubber and everything was blah.... More

As a regular visitor to Ireland, but first visit to Cork. The hotel is centrally placed for visiting the city. The staff were polite and friendly. Our double room was clean, tidy and big enough for the both of us, being without much of a view didn't bother us in the slightest. The food, especially the bar meals were excellent... More

Stayed here the other night, a truly terrible experience that the staff couldn't care less about and a manager, roger russell, that doesn't care. Room had stains on the sheets, a dirty carpet and a strange damp smell. The noise at night was upsetting. When I went to complain they shrugged their shoulders and said 'managers not here' . When...

This hotel is in a very old rickety building. It needs to be updated a little. The hotel is across the river from the main shopping and pub areas. Wished we got to use the spa and pool. Nice stay, but it was a just okay hotel nothing special.
