All rooms in the hotel have twin beds and are so comfortable. There's a great sized power shower in the bathroom. Food was nice. The staff are all very friendly, especially Ashley at... More

We stayed here for a family function January. The food at the function was gorgeous, canapes, prosecco and a gorgeous buffet. We requested late check out and were accommodated without question. The rooms are large and the shower is fabulous. The bar area is large and well able to cater several large groups if needed. We missed breakfast due to... More

Many thanks for taking time to write a review. I must admit that I am a little mystified regarding your comments relating to the portion sizes on the carvery. If anything we are accused of overloading plates with food. In fact even a baby bowl has at least two scoops of mashed potato. All main courses come with 2 scoops... More

I choose this hotel for business stays in Cork as it is a comfortable and welcoming hotel. Ideal for a quiet business stay over, and the food is excellent. Staff are very friendly and always accommodate you where possible. Only area that I feel that needs to be looked at is that breakfast only starts at 7.00am, where many hotels... More
