More like a 2 star. The staff were very nice, and one staff member went out of his way to find us a fan ( due to no air conditioner). The rooms were a little outdated. Breakfast was really good! Overall, it is what it is. We stayed at 2 4 star hotels, so that might have impacted my judgement... More

We ate here for out Sunday lunch. Great lunch and good fresh food of high quality. Deserts were reasonably priced and it is good to watch GAA or Football games as big screens. Problem is that the queue for the food is always huge and it takes a long time to get served. Wish they did something about it as... More

I stayed with my husband, mom and her partner. The rooms were clean, but we quickly discovered that the door in my mom's room could be pushed open from the outside. When we contacted the front desk, they did not seem as concerned about it as we were. Their solution was to have them use the deadbolt to make sure... More

Thanks for your review. I am disappointed to hear you could not provide us with a higher rating. Security is of the upmost importance to all our guests. We have 24 hour CCTV security and 24 hour coverage on our reception desk with strict night time security procedures where all external doors to the hotel are locked and checked. We... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. Receptionist was very welcoming. We had trouble with the key card to get in to the room so we went back to reception and were told to lean the card towards the handle as they are fidgety. The room had a very damp smell and was out dated. But was perfectly fine just not luxurious... More

I would like to take the opportunity to respond to your review, and attempt to address your issues based on the extent of the information provided. I would concede and agree that a comparison to a new 4 or 5 star hotel, would validate the statement "seen a lot better". It is very important to us that potential customers form... More

The only good thing i can say was the food was nice, the hotel is very run down, the room i stayed in was converted for disability, the tv was one of the old CRT screens and made a loud buzzing sound while it was on. The carpet was manky and the walls provided no sound proofing, i could hear... More

On the main Cork/Limerick road about five minutes from the city centre by taxi, this is a good value alternative to staying city centre. The room was very large and very clean. The bar is nice and the food good and well priced. The front desk staff are friendly. Not a fancy hotel, but does what it says on the... More

From the minute we walked in, the customer service was brilliant. We were early but it seemed to be no problem to the receptionist (Ashley?) who immediately allocated us our rooms. First night, we had our meal in their restaurant and had brilliant service from Daniel who, was incredibly patient with one of our party who is a bit challenging!!!... More
