I booked the Lancaster Lodge at short notice for an overnight stay in Cork. A major plus for me was free and secure parking right outside the hotel. Reception was pleasant and welcoming and check in very efficient. A taxi was ordered in the evening , which arrived promptly. Bedrooms are a reasonable size, beds are very comfortable. Bathrooms are... More

The rooms and service were excellent. Even though I've read reviews that the front rooms should be really loud, I can't confirm that. The beds were also very comfortable and the rooms very beautiful and spacious. The only thing I can criticize is the breakfast. We had the continental and it was alright, the Irish breakfast didn't look worth the... More

Advertised as a four star hotel and certainly lives up to this rating in terms of comfort and friendly service. Freshly cooked breakfast and a good selection of cereals, fruits, juices etc. was welcome in the morning.

I give it 5 stars as it did the job perfectly, it is not a 5* hotel, but does not claim to be. The staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and comfortable, the breakfast well cooked and extremely tasty. My 9yr old daughter and I very much enjoyed our night here during out tour of Ireland.

Very high standards, lovely bathroom with nice water pressure in shower and bath, very clean, great facilities. One thing though is that the duvet was sometimes too hot so maybe supply a sheet as this would be substantial to keep warm.

Great Hotel. No frills, but friendly and efficient service and a nice clean room. Very centrally located. Hotel doesn't have a reasturant, but thats not an issue as there are so many great restaurants nearby. We ate at Cafe Paradiso, which is fabulous & just across the road

The Lancaster Lodge is located a few minutes walk from the downtown area of Cork. It is a nice hotel which features a full breakfast but no other meals. That is not a huge concern as there are many restaurants and bars very close by. The one caution I would recommend is choosing a room on the back side of... More
