I recently stayed at the Gresham Metropole as a base for 24 hours in Cork. It is ideally located on the North side of the River Lee and is literally a 3 minute walk to the main thoroughfare Patrick's Street. When we checked in at 12 noon, our room was ready and as requested we received a room overlooking the... More

Visited the Gresham Metropole over Christmas with my girlfriend and her mother. The staff were very polite, helpful and were very happy considering they were working over the festive period. The hotel was clean and rooms were adequate considering the value. The meals were very good and overall, cannot fault our stay whatsoever. Would not hesitate to recommend. Thank you... More

On arrival, I was greeted by personable and helpful staff at the front desk. The room itself was spacious and clean, and also well furnished if you wanted to spend time working there, with a large desk to use. The bathroom was impressively large, maybe even strangely so, as big as the bedroom, well maintained and clean with a combination... More

Stayed here in December for a family hen night-20 ladies in total. The location is great, a mere 5 mins to the main shopping area. Check-in was quick and easy. The rooms were adequate for what we wanted-somewhere to sleep. The rooms were located at the very back of the hotel through long corridors and there was only 1 lift... More

It was positioned well. Staff were really friendly. The breakfast was delicious. We would stay here again for the location and the great deal they gave us considering we were staying out of season. The room was spacious with everything travellers require.
