Located on Western Road, 10 minute walk into the centre of Cork. Room immaculately clean as always (visited many times). Service was great, breakfast was well cooked, could of done with white pudding as well as the black, but that's me being greedy!

We stayed here for one night. The location is perfect, only a few minutes walk to bars, shops and restaurants. The staff were very helpful on arrival. The rooms were very clean and had everything you would need. We will definitely stay here again.

Stayed in May for a couple of nights on business. Good location 5-10min walk from Cork centre, and is at the right end of town for the Franciscan Well Brewpub. Room was clean and functional, decent shower, and had a good nights sleep (no real noise, even with the window open). I wouldn't have billed this hotel as "luxury four... More

I stayed here for work and after some initial confusion around the price of hearing a room the service was excellent and the breakfast also was great with friendly staff. It is close the city centre with everything within a walking distance. Taxi fee to the hotel ranges between 15 to 18 Euro from the Airport. Nice and quiet also... More

Stayed in this hotel for a couple of nights, it is in a good position for the city centre, the hotel itself is pretty basic for the price but it gave us everything we needed for a short stay. There is plenty of free parking on site, breakfast is freshly cooked and of a good quality, there is no restaurant... More

The Lancaster Lodge Guesthouse provided a great location, clean & comfortable room, tasty breakfast and friendly staff. Slightly pricy but maybe there are better deals to be had if you book earlier in advance.

Stayed in this hotel on a business trip to Fermoy - not in the city centre but enough restaurants around so no problem. On site parking which is a bonus. Room adequate as was breakfast. Would stay at this hotel again.

For the amount paid we expected more. Location is excellent but front desk staff could be friendlier. Breakfast had very few options and bedroom was just OK. Nothing especial. As We arrived, like in so many tourist cities, could have been offered a map and shown some important buildings and places to eat/drink.

Stayed here for one night in August. Location is great, not far from city centre. Rooms are pretty run of the mill but they are clean. Staff were friendly. However I felt it was far too expensive for what it was and advertising as a luxury guest house is only so they can charge more. Breakfast was ridiculously overpriced I... More
