Maybe we were just unlucky with the room we were given, but it was really tiny for a double-room, with a small window. The tv was small and old. The water pressure in the shower was weak. The website for the hotel suggests a level of comfort and space, and although I understand that room-size varies a lot in hotels... More

It's right across the river from the major shopping/dining spots, the folks at the from desk were very accommodating and helpful, parking was right around the corner at a discounted rate [we prepaid for parking at the hotel desk and went in/out at our leisure], the rooms were well done. The hotel itself is a great piece of architecture, well... More

Stayed here for two nights and have no complaints. I accidentally left my house keys in the room when we checked out, and didn't realise it until I got home. They mailed the keys back to me promptly and they arrived the next day which was a lifesaver! The breakfast was great each morning. Thanks again!

This serves a good lunch. Service is quick. Staff are very attentive and courteous. Price is slightly more that other places but worth it for the quality and one has to be mindful that this is a hotel so price will normally be that little bit higher. Would eat here again.

Stayed here for a one night stay recently. On booking I stated my husband required a gluten free breakfast and also asked when checking in if they could provide and was reassured it was no problem. I really think your staff need more training on what constitutes gluten free. On arrival to breakfast the following morning we enquired about gluten... More

We had a very comfortable family room, 3 beds. Great to have fridge in the room. The leisure and pool area is really good. We ate dinner in the brasserie which was child friendly, flexible and good value. We'll definitely be back here next time in Cork.

This hotel was easy to access, with parking available indoors close to the hotel. The atmosphere is slightly upscale, so you have the impressive first impression, but once again it is very comfortable and not snobbish. The staff is excellent. They are helpful with suggestions and make you feel like you are very welcome. Definitely would stay again.

Excellent hotel with very fast Wi-Fi, helpful staff and the best restaurants in Cork around the corner. We booked a room with 2 seperate beds, but instead we got a room with 1 bed. After notifying the hotel receptionist we received an upgraded room (suite on the 2nd floor), which we were very happy with.

We stayed at the Gresham for an overnight stay in Cork. The Hotel looked good on the Internet, but that was where it ended. Check in gave us a hint as a "stag party" were checking in! There was one lift available for us to get to our room. The room was facing the street and immediately the noise could... More

Dear Mark R, Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I was disappointed to read that you didn't enjoy your stay with us. We are a city centre hotel and because of this a certain amount of noise from traffic and passers-by is inevitable. However we do have rooms that face inwards which would be quieter for... More
