Very happy with my stay here. Great location, just a minutes drive outside of Cork centre. Nice clean and spacious room but most importantly it was very quiet so i got a great nights sleep. The Shower was amazing! At this price I'll be back.

I was made to feel very special from the moment I booked in, the service and friendliness from the staff was second to none. They obviously train their staff to a very high standard indeed, through from the restaraunt,bar,reception and cleaning. I would not hesitate to return there or recommend to anyone staying in Cork.

This was a great place to stay. The staff were very helpful with everything, from how to get to a tourist attraction to where was good to go at night. Plenty of parking too. We had Sunday dinner here and it was fantastic.

My fiance and I spent 2 nights there, in nice double room. The staff were very polite and helpful with our needs and the prices were perfect for us. The room itself was great and the breakfast was more than enough to fill most people. The location itself is not too far from the city centre and nicely situated for... More

We have just spent an excellent weekend at the hotel. I booked 8 rooms for a group of 17 ( 6 adults and 11 teenagers) and all rooms were excellent with two large comfortable double beds and clean bathrooms. We had the full Irish breakfast which was large and plentiful with a continental assortment of pastries as well. The staff... More

We spent two nights here as a family, in two ground floor rooms. Both rooms were large and comfortable, with two large beds (small doubles rather than singles). We found the hotel comfortable, with friendly and very helpful staff. The only small complaint would be that the rooms had no bath, only a shower. We had a problem with one... More

Avoid room 102 as the shower leaks and the managment either don't know about it(hard to see how you don't know when water spills out from bathroom into bedroom) or just don't care - i'm going with just don't care.Rooms are big and beds are comfy, breakfast is slow to be served.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. it is unfortunate that you were not told that your room was a wheelchair adapted room which has a wetroom as opposed to a regular shower/bath. Please contact our accommodation manager, Ashley Colson, on 021-4210300 and she can discuss your review in more detail. More
