I attended a day-long course at the Metrepole. The meeting room was excellent and the staff who serviced the room during the day were excellent. One of my colleagues uses a wheelchair and we were amazed to find a portable ramp was needed to reach the dining room. This is stone age stuff. Lunch was just about adequate but that... More

I stayed here for three nights over the new year period as I was visiting friends in Cork. I had booked a room for single occupancy, however on one of the nights my girlfriend unexpectedly decided to join me in Cork. On returning to the hotel after 12am, the doorman refused to allow my girlfriend entry as she was not... More

I booked a room in the Gresham hotel for my husbands birthday. I have to complement the staff on the service they gave us on the night. The lay out of the room, the settings and display of the tables, the food and the overall service was excellent. I would highly recommend this hotel for a private party.

This a pleasant well run and clean hotel with friendly staff, but is tired and dated throughout, though as others have commented it seems good value. This is what all hotels were like in the UK thirty years ago. Gresham were put up for sale by the receivers in June 2014, and it is to be hoped that someone will... More

I have stayed here a couple of times, once with a group & most recently for my Husbands 40th birthday. On both occasions I found the staff to be polite & very helpful. The hotel itself is a beautiful building, both inside & out. We had an amazing room on our last stay...gorgeous bathroom with spa bath, loads of space... More

Great location within walking distance of Patrick street, I totally enjoyed my 5 nights stay in the comfort of this Cork landmark, it's not a boutique hotel but this is reflected in price of the stay. The leisure centre is wonderful, the staff very helpful, and I loved looking at the River Lee over breakfast. Good value and pleasant stay!

I stayed at this hotel with a number of friends on a recent weekend. I was delighted with the wonderful comfort of the hotel. All the staff were helpful, obliging, informative and respectful. The facilities are great and the close proximity to the city centre makes it an ideal base for a weekend shopping trip or for business. Also, it... More

Good location a short walk from the centre of Cork. Staff were polite and efficient. Nice breakfast in the morning. With good variety. The room was a pretty standard hotel room. Nice and comfortable but nothing special. Bathroom on the small side. Would recommend to others.

My mother and I greatly enjoyed staying in this historical European hotel, which has been well-maintained with all of the charming features one would expect. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The bathrooms were spacious with beautiful features. The staff was consistently friendly and helpful as well. We enjoyed the live music in the tastefully decorated bar, along with the... More
