I always stayed at the Gresham Metropole and found the service, rooms and food to be excellent, the staff are very friendly and helpful at all times. And the location couldn't be better if your visiting Cork for business or pleasure.

The staff are very friendly and helpful at all times. And the location couldn't be better. Always... More

We stayed here for two nights in March in a double room on the fourth floor. The hotel has a lovely looking reception area. The staff were nice and the room was spacious. However, the bed was quite hard and we didn't sleep well here during our stay. There was also a lot of noise coming from the guests next... More

Went to the Cork School of Music ball in the Metropole. What a venue! The staff were outstanding, waiting staff, security, the lads on the bar - all brilliant.

Got stranded in Cork on a Saturday evening so headed here because I stayed here before. Got quoted a ridiculous rate but had little choice as it was raining outside. Expected breakfast to be included in the price but not the case and had to leave a busy restaurant because I was room only. My phone was dead but had... More

Dear Sparky2256, Thank you for taking the time to post your review. In the hotel industry bedroom rates increase with demand. You were sold one of our last bedrooms on a Saturday night which is the busiest night of the week. When you were quoted the rate you would have been offered a bed and breakfast rate and a room...
