    Our room was very comfortable, the breakfast was great (a great deal of variety, including smoked fish) and the fitness center was terrific. Staff was very helpful in suggesting restaurants and side trips. Complementary parking and Wifi. Lovely views.

    This is a very modern and stylish hotel, with massive glass walls. The breakfast was good but the service could have been better. Excellent reception staff and a superb, well equiped room with comfy foam mattress, and an excellent bathroom. Coming by car we found it difficult to find and you have to pay for parking. Would certainly stay here... More

    Wonderful stay at River Lee Hotel. First time staying after a friend recommended it. Will definetely be back soon. Very relaxed atmosphere. Rooms are comfortable only small issue is rooms that have a single and double bed are a tiny bit cramped bit that's not much to complain about really. Staff lovely. Everyone we dealt with was friendly and welcoming,... More

    Everything about the river lee hotel was truly wonderful. Its proximity to the city; the relaxing leisure centre; the friendly staff; the glass covered area attached to the bar which allows guests the experience of sitting by the river while also keeping warm and dry; the spacious room and extremely comfortable rooms with foot deep mattresses; and the modern decor;...

    The second Doyle Collection Hotel we have stayed in and again a truly superb experience. The Hotel was great, and the staff were fantastic. The bar and restaurant were of great quality and we could easily have just eaten there. Easy to recommend and we will be trying the group's other hotels.

    Stunning hotel, amazing staff, fantastic location and a breakfast to die for.... Stayed in this hotel last Friday, we'd a wrap party for CorkPhoto2015, this is a cracking hotel in the middle of the city. Didn't get a chance to visit the spa but if the breakfast was anything to go by, then it's gotta be pretty excellent. Staff were... More

    We spent a three night stay last week at the River Lee hotel as a family of four, two adults, two children. From start to finish, this hotel was the epitome of excellence. It was immaculately clean in all public areas and this was replicated in the standard of cleaning our room received each day. All the staff were very... More

    We stayed here three nights and enjoyed 3 breakfasts and one dinner included in our rate. The hotel staff were all friendly and very helpful. The hotel is a short walking distance to the main shopping areas in Cork (5 to 10 minutes walk) and sits right on the River Lee, which offers excellent views of the river, swans, and... More

    A one night stay in an executive room.The most comfortable bed I have ever slept in and good quality linen. We eat in the bar and all four of us had different meals, all very good. Staff were excellent. We hit the dinning room for breakfast at a very busy time and it was mayhem, the staff were under pressure... More
