Upon driving into the Cork City, due to heavy traffic after work, it took us some challenge in locating the hotel. After circulating for one round, it appeared on the left bank of the river. Wow! The appearance looked great comparing with the historical surroundings. Free underground parking and such a modern and transparent facade are the two surprises. It... More

Outstanding ambiance and atmosphere. Relaxed, friendly, helpful staff of the kind that makes you realize what good management can do. breakfast is truly great, one of the best buffets you could imagine. Although we are 'older' (70) we loved the way that children were welcomed in a relaxed manner in the dining room, even in the evening. A superb hotel... More

Great location, modern hotel with lovely views over the river lee and close to Fitzgerald park and the city gaol. A out 10 mins walk to city centre. Glass lifts take a bit of getting used to as you need to insert your door card to operate the lifts. The bad thing about this hotel was the cost of the... More

We were very pleased with this hotel, we were greated at the front with a warm cloth which is so nice after hours in a car. We thouroughly enjoyed the view with the big comfy chairs. The restaurant and pub both had good food and service. we enjoyed the pool and free parking. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Service from all staff was professional and courteous. Breakfast was very nice with a nice array of options. If I was returning to... More

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights in a deluxe room on the 5th floor with views over the river and town. This hotel is centrally located so it's easy to walk around the city. Our room & bathroom had been recently renovated so was clean, tidy & in excellent condition. We had breakfast included & had dinner there... More

I loved the River Lee. I would rate it "6" if I could. The basics were all perfect - clean, large rooms, beautiful hotel, nice surroundings, quiet, comfortable beds. They were very accommodating with early check-in after my overnight flight, and that always rates an extra star in my book. I'm not a fan of hotel bars / restaurants, but... More

I can't rate this highly enough...a cut above any other city centre hotel...the breakfast is incredible. All furnishings are very luxurious. We came as a family but I would recommend to couples as well.
