Stayed here one night on business. Good pool and leisure centre. Decent sized room with comfy bed and all the necessary items (TV, Wi fi). I have to say the highlight was the Asian restaurant downstairs. Really good, fresh food.

Dear INGOMARDRIVE, Thank you for your recent review of the Clarion. I am delighted to see everything here was to your satisfaction. Unfortunately as Lapps Quay car park is a public car park we do not have the privilege to offer our guest complimentary parking. I do hope you will consider us again in the future. Kind regards Garret Marrinan... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, accommodation,breakfast & car parking came to a total of €340. Which would be ok if the hotel was worth it,as we have stayed here before we knew what to expect. The hotel has got grubby,while we sat in the foyer waiting for our room to be ready we could clearly see a lot of... More

I recently had a lovely 3 night stay here with a group of friends, the staff were very helpful and pleasant, especially the bar staff. Nice hotel decor and clean and tidy rooms. The hotel is in a good location, it is near the main area for shops, bars and restaurants! - I will stay here again.

We stayed here for one night. 150 euro for the room. 10 euro for parking and almost 30 for two breakfasts. The hotel is nice and clean. Our room had inside view so could not open window. Air con was very poor and for heavily pregnant woman I thought I would pass out. Helpful staff did bring up fan which... More

My partner and I stayed at the end of July for 2 nights. We had been camping for 5 nights so wanted a little bit of luxury at the end of our trip. I enjoyed an amazing spa treatment in the SanoVitae spa, well worth the money and the hotel staff were polite and efficient. Underground parking at 10 euros... More

The hotel was everything that we expected, clean, tidy, modern, large bedroom good shower etc etc. Cork was a different matter, the centre is a building site and there are nicer towns/ cities in Ireland.

First of all: the location is excellent. It's right in the middle of Cork City, a couple minute walk to the main pub/shop roads. It's literally steps from the bus station, and about a 8-10 minute walk from the train station. The lobby is attractive and modern, as is the entire hotel. I wasn't completely blown away by the room,... More
