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

We have just returned from a family wedding in the Cork area and stayed at this hotel. We took my elderly parents with us, and the staff couldn't have been more helpful and obliging with us all. They gave us a place to store wheelchairs, and my parents' disabled room was comfortable and well-equipped. All rooms were also clean, spacious... More

The Lodge is located off Washington Street in the heart of Cork city. It is about 30 mins walk or 10 mins taxi from the train station and about 20 min walk from the bus station. If you are driving it is very easy to locate and has free parking which is great for the city centre. Our accommodation comprised... More

The place is ok. It's in a very handy location. The sleep quality is very good. Breakfast was very expensive and not that great. The place is a bit boring and could do with some moderning up. If you stay I recommend Tony's Bistro for breakfast.

Lancaster lodge was clean, in a good location but I felt it missed out in the level of service you would expect for the price and also considering it is meant to be 4 stars. The reception staff were friendly but the staff at breakfast could have been more customer focused, it felt like they didn't want to be there.... More

The staff were service minded! The room was ok! I slept well in the bed and the breakfast was really enough. Cold and hot dishes. We really got what we asked for. I can really recommend this hotel near the centre of cork
