Do book a junior suite, you will not be disappointed and only €40 extra per night. Breakfast was scrumptious and delivered without fuss to our spacious room(s). Well done Oriel... More

She was very pleasantly surprised to be greeted by their new manager at the reception desk. James, he took the time to sit down with her and... More

Though work I stayed in the Oriel House Hotel in Ballincollig for a number of nights, actually in the end I felt like part of the furniture. The staff are friendly; the food is of a good standard and the rooms comfortable. Word of warning: the water in the hotel is very hot, so let the shower run before you... More

Lovely, spacious and modern hotel. Very comfortable stay and accommodating staff. Would recommend for business or leisure. We attended a wedding at the hotel and both the food and the service were great.

Stayed for a weekend break last week. Lovely place room was very cosy. Pool and facilities where top notch will return. The only issue was my wife is a vegetarian and there wasn't a lot for her to choose from on the menus. Also if your going for a spa book it well in advance as it is very sought... More

I was recently at a conference in the oriel and while I like the hotel the food always let's it down..It was terrible. such poor quality and the room we were in was badly ventilated, it was very warm and the windows would not open so it was hard to concentrate...very poor standards for a clean bright hotel.such a pity
