Friendly staff and great location. The car parking should be free but I guess 10 Euro for overnight parking isn't too bad. Our hairdryer was broken but this was quickly replaced. Additional pillows should be stocked in all rooms.

Anne Marie took care of everything for us including making sure our rooms were side by side and that we got a large room to enjoy the celebrations. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The food at breakfast and dinner was lovely. The rooms were fabulous.... More

7 of us stayed here for a weekend away. The hotel staff were always accommodating to our needs. We had luxurious rooms right beside each other with lots of thoughtful touches. I found Anne Marie was so helpful in assisting me to plan the weekend and including lots of suggestions for our time spent there. We will all definitely be... More

Lovely hotel - well located, great food and great facilities. Couldn't fault the service received. Will be even better once the work is completed on the local bridge which is causing a little traffic congestion. I will be back!!

Location at the end of Oliver Plunkett Street affords this hotel a perfect location for exploring the music and theater scene here in Cork. Excellent fitness center and spa. Fast and reasonably priced room service was appreciated. I would recommend avoiding rooms on the back of the hotel due to a halfway house in that area often creating unfortunate disturbances...

Will definately be back. Staff throughout the hotel were great, food in the bar was fab. Our family felt extremely welcome. Loved the extra room and privacy of the apartment, although we would have appreciated aircon and we had constant issues with key cards not working in both entries to the apartment.
