We stayed at the Metropole as a group of four for 3 nights. We were greeted at Reception and given our room numbers on the 3rd floor. My Husband and myself were given room 427, which I felt was quite basic for a standard room. However it was spotlessly clean. The TV was old and a bit battered, I was... More

The Metrople has nice comfortable rooms, it is licated near the bus & train stations and is only a short walk to the city centre. There are lovely cafes and bars on the same street as the hotel. It has good facilties and very helpful & friendly staff. I enjoyed my two week stay very much.

I booked 3 rooms for a family party. After booking online, I followed up with a phone call to ensure everything was booked correctly. The good involves the great value for money we got for a two night stay with evening meal and the good quality of the food. The bad involves the incorrect room bookings and the poorly trained...

Great hotel to get a good feel for Cork City. Close 5 minute walk to the main street with all the shops and restaurants you could need. The service from the staff was good. The only bad point was that when I booked the room I asked for extras to be in the room upon arrival, but when we got... More

I stayed in this hotel twice, my first time had a lovely modern room, the service was really good and the staff too. But my second visit I got an horrible room, awful view, very very small room, with a old tv, the double bed became practically single because one of the sides was against the wall, the bathroom was...

The rooms are clean and basic. There is a lovely pool on the ground floor which is a big plus. Breakfast was good. Fresh, with a good selection. Elevator was very slow and a little scary! The location is very good for Cork City.

I did'nt have high expectations but the room was so jaded and tired it was creepy. The decor looks like it had'nt been touched since the seventies. The staff were , particularly in the health club were about the most unwelcome imaginable. Fortunately the bathroom was clean & modern. The breakfast was good when you consider the room was frightening.... More

Myself and my husband had a mini honeymoon in Cork last December and stayed in one of the Suites. It was fabulous - four poster bed, separate sitting room, dressing gowns and slippers, jacuzzi bath. We had a brilliant time in Cork city and returning to a lovely welcome hotel at the end of the day was great. The staff... More
