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 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
