Stayed here Oct 6-8 (sorry for the late review). - check in and out was efficient, quick and friendly. - had one evening dinner here - pleasant waitress and good food. Cork is a small town and good food is hard to find unless you know the city/friends. - Nice view - room was cosy and overlooking the River Lee.... More

Stayed here midweek with my girlfriend for a city break in Cork, a better hotel you will not find. I stay in far too many hotels, and many fit into the same tired, fading, 7/10 bracket - THIS IS DEFINITELY NOT one of them. Outstanding from start to finish, the rooms on the 5th floor are fantastic, beautifully equipped, quiet,... More

I stayed in this hotel for one night with my husband and daughter. The hotel is very handy for visiting the town centre, some hospitals, and UCC.

Wonderful welcome, free parking. We stayed on 5th floor with free drinks/nibbles, we did have to move as there was a very strange noise in the room which we think was coming from the lift as we were closest to the lifts. The staff were excellent and moved us very quickly no fuss. Great location on the river within walking... More

spent just one night here but it was very enjoyable. The hotel is very pleasant with helpful and friendly staff. We were part of a wedding group and it was a very well managed occasion. The location of the hotel is perfect for shopping in Cork or visiting the university.
