My only criticism was that I tried to order advertised pancakes for three days from their foyer coffee shop but for various reasons it couldn't be done. They are keen on their buffet breakfasts-I'm not a fan of buffets! Otherwise a perfect stay-my... More

Best steaks in a long time!!! There was a super melange of different desserts all on the one plate. This was a moveable feast for the taste buds. Staff... More

Stayed for 4 nights. Excellent service, very clean and quiet. Two minute walk to bus station and 5 minute walk to city center. Had turn down service complete with chocolate daily as well as bottled water. Upon check out was given bottled water to take on journey. Would definitely stay again.

Everything was just great. Friendly welcome from the staff in the reception, they gave us a map when we asked for it and showed us where the main sights to see were located and where most pubs and are located. Will stay here again if we visit Cork another time.

We stayed one night on the way to Killarney and had a great time. Everything very good, access, location, staff, service, amenities, comfort and food. Will come back and will definitely recommend. Worth asking for a room at the upper floors to enjoy the nice views of the city skyline.
