The hotel generally is okay, two things I didnt like: soundproofing of my room was bad (I could hear clearly the party music from the ground floor bar and the fellow guests walking and talking by my door), also the sauna facilities are very basic for a 4 star hotel.

Great hotel and excellent location. Close to shops and all amenities. We were going to the Lionel Ritchie concert so they provided a shuttle bus which was very convenient. The hotel also organised food afterwards at a very affordable price.

Hotel was excellent and provided a shuttle bus to and from the concert. there was a great atmosphere in the hotel. the band and disco after the concert were a lovely bonus to our night. Rooms were lovely and spacious and I would definitely return.

Only gripes: 1. car-parking for one night was an additional 10 euros at check out. I expect car parking to be included in hotel booking price. 2. No fresh fish option on breakfast menu. Other than that our brief stay was very comfortable and the staff lovely.

I travel a lot but the one place where I have little history of hotel accommodation is in my home town of Cork. Coming for a concert at the marquee. First, the positives: the hotel is well located, and the free shuttle service to and from the Marquee was welcome. However... The price offered was the same as that offered... More
