Nice room, very big with lovely bathroom however room is quite dated. Breakfast was nice but full Irish was not great, it's very small. Overall good hotel at a good price. Good location easy to get to cork city from.

My partner and I booked this hotel as a four day break. When booking, we knew the hotel was cheap...that's what drew us to it, along with the good reviews it had received. The rooms are large which is nice, however the beds are small and cave in the middle so not a great nights sleep. The rooms only come... More

Recently attended an after funeral gathering at this establishment - disaster zone - tea or coffee on arrival served on a messy table, milk and sugar on another table which rocked spilling tea/milk - even messier table. Soup when it eventually arrived was tepid at best, no serviettes provided or anywhere in sight. Sandwiches [a few served to some tables]... More

This was our second visit to the Commons Inn having been delighted with our first visit back in May 2015 (which I reviewed very positively then). The friendly atmosphere and excellent food ensured that we came back for this 4 night visit and, once again, we have been utterly delighted by the standard of our rooms, the food (do have... More

Much the same as a travel lodge, but nice bar and great beds. Would go again as it had a bus stop outside which took you into Cork town. Staff were great and rooms clean. Hotel does food but apart from breakfast didn't eat there though! Only down side was the breakfast, not much choice, service was poor and the... More

She also supplied us with a time table for the Bus into the city. The 215 to be precise which is less than a 10 minute walk from the Hotel and takes you right... More

Went for Sunday carvery with my family. Big spacious dining area. Good choice of main course with different types of beef, chicken and ham. I had the beef which was melt in the mouth. The chef was very pleasant and helpful. The roast potatoes though appeared to be deep fried as opposed to roasted but otherwise everything was great including... More

I have to say this place was average for the price. The pub area was good and the food good. The staff were lovely. The room was spacious and the beds comfy, it was however quite noisy. There appeared to be shift workers staying and they came in the early hours of the morning making a lot of noise.

Thanks for choosing to stay with us, and recognising our great food, nice pub area, friendly staff, spacious rooms and comfy beds. It is regrettable that you were disturbed by other guests going to their rooms in the morning, I am glad to report that this is not a common occurrence at the hotel. More
