Location is really good,close to the centre and all amenities! Breakfast is very big with lot of choices. Rooms are small and carpet sometimes dirty... Service is ok but can be better! Spa and swimming pool is really good.

Greatly enjoyed our stay in this Hotel. Our daughters 40th birthday weekend was a big success, due in no small part to the success of the Ormonde as our destination of choice as our daughter had stayed here earlier this year and enjoyed the experience. All staff were extremely friendly and helpful, all rooms were very pleasant and well maintained... More

Although the room was too hot for us initially, when we spoke to Roisin at reception she immediately arranged for the radiator in our room to be switched off. Then we had a very comfortable night! The breakfasts were delicious and filling (and... More

Hello, Returned yesterday after staying two nights in the Ormonde. A very big thank you to Breeda and Roisin on reception. Firstly I booked the wrong nights and I was at home in Cork when Roisin rang to see were we checking in. With no fuss she cancelled that night and was able to accommodate us for the Friday night....

Most recent stay was a family get together. We booked a weekend package deal which included meal. Amazing value . We had a great stay. Staff very efficient and friendly. Meal was excellent. Rooms large and comfortable. Have stayed on numerous occasions and cannot be beaten on value and location in centre of city.

I stayed here in this hotel with my sister and our two freinds. I have to say it was a fantastic hotel. The staff were wonderful. The hotel itself was perfect The location was ideal. We stayed on a B&B basis but had our lunch there most days and it was lovely. The breakfast was plentyfull and lots of choices
