Came across Commons Inn as I was working in Cork for a couple of days, and looking for somewhere reasonably priced to stay, with car park facilities- not always easy in Cork city, I had both dinner and breakfast at the hotel, and the food was freshly prepared and delicious, couldn't fault anything. The staff in the restaurant were so... More

Many thanks for your great review. Just to let you know that all our rooms really are very large and the only difference between your room and a standard room is the extra bed. We do have baths in some of our rooms and do not hesitate to ask for one the next time that you book. We look forward... More

I am currently studying in Cork one weekend a month and a friend of mine recommended The Commons. This Hotel has hospitality personified in Grace on Reception and Daniel in the Bar. Grace is so welcoming, she is so attentive to any needs and requests. Daniel is just superb. Nothing is a bother to him and really ensures that The... More

The location was a little out of the main central area of cork. But the rooms were big as were the bathrooms. The front desk staff were pleasant enough. But the two gentlemen working in the restaurant the nights we dined there were excellent. Their customer service was phenomenal! And the food was excellent. My partner and I also had... More

We stayed for a few nights as we had some work done on our house and couldn't be there so booked ourselves in the the Commons Inn Hotel. We both felt the stay was excellent from start to finish. The main point is that the staff were friendly as well as professional, and nothing was too much trouble. The room... More

We always push the double beds together, in our hotel room and put the kids in the middle, so they do not fall out. When we moved the beds, the dirt and dust underneath was so bad!!!! The dust was so deep, I got a teaspoon and wrote "CLEAN ME" in it and took pictures!!!! On our second night at... More

We are absolutely mortified that the standards which we have set for ourselves have not been implemented. This is a basic issue and goes to the heart of our philosophy of providing clean... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Having investigated your complaint it seems that we had reserved a ground floor room for you and your mother as requested. The confusion occurred when you gave a different name to the receptionist other than the name under which you booked. Having no booking under the name which you provided... More

I was visiting Cork in August and dropped into the Commons as I always do when I'm coming up from Limerick. Its a great spot for a few drinks and a bite to eat. The bar staff, especially Denise are excellent and really make an effort to know everyone by name. The owner always comes over to say hello and... More
