This is a beautiful hotel, located a short walk from the city centre! We were staying as part of a celebration and the staff on reception did their utmost to make sure we were happy with our adjoining rooms. The rooms are gorgeous, really comfortable beds, lovely facilities, great breakfast! Will be back!

Best hotel I have ever stayed, enjoyed our three night stay with three kids, everything about this place is superb, you won't be disappointed atall. The breakfast was amazing too, all different kinds of food to cater for all, even a gluten free section. Well done.

We recently spent a night in Cork on our tour through Ireland. I would say it was my favorite choice of the places we stayed. It was very clean, modern, great bed and the breakfast in the morning was also the best that we had. It's a great location. It was also raining and the front desk had umbrellas for... More

Stayed on business many times over the last year. Always great. The location is brilliant that you can walk into town, the facilities are excellent, the food, room and atmosphere is always exceptional. My only problem giving them a review is that it is more likely the hotel will be booked out when I want to stay!
