Having booked this online the only thing that disapponted me was the position directly on a busy road. We have been travelling all over Ireland and staying in both B&B's and hotels with 2 children. So we always need a family room and of course we are having breakfast for 4 people. The hotel is simple but I found the... More

Spent one night here in July. The price is low but frankly so is the quality. The room was big but musty. The hallway carpets desperately need to be cleaned. The staff serving the breakfast were surly. But to be fair, the beds were good and the bathrooms were modern and clean. The location is far from downtown, but getting... More

Stayed here with friends as we were in Cork to see Paolo Nutini recently. Rooms were very impressive for the price we paid, clean and well maintained. Prior to going to the gig, we decided to eat in the hotel restaurant/bar. Food we received wasn't too bad but we had to wait 40 minutes to be served. I understand that... More

We booked two nights here as we were going to a gig in The Marquee and decided to make a trip of it. We weren't looking for luxury, just a good base close to the city. We were pleasantly surprised that the hotel was quite modern (I think our room had been recently updated) and very comfortable. We were given... More

Stayed for one night with a school group and had breakfast and dinner in the restaurant. Room was a touch dingier than others we stayed in, and my daughter had no hot water for a shower in the evening (morning showers were fine). Opening the windows didn't offer much in the way of cooling the room. Pros: Dinner was good,... More

We booked this hotel to break a long car journey and arrived in the late evening. It would be unfair not to recognise the many positives of this clean, bright and generally welcoming establishment but it could be so much better with some management attention. A distinct lack of general maintenance was the most obvious factor, particularly in the bathroom... More
