I don't know where all the negative comments below are coming from as I found it very hard to fault this hotel. We booked into this hotel with a groupon voucher and for only £80 we feel we got a fantastic deal, very clean, well decorated and offers a nice and relaxing environment, leisure facilities are fantastic with a great...

Brilliant hotel, staff were so friendly even when they were so busy, the bar staff really made us feel special, the food was so good, breakfast was top class, spa was excellent, we enjoyed the couple treatment room.

I would not have paid full price for this hotel but we got a deal on Groupon which was £80 for 2 nights including breakfast. Really glad we bought this deal as we thoroughly enjoyed our break and made the most of the location by travelling to Cork, Blarney and Cashel. Breakfast was very good and staff were all friendly...

Stayed here for two nights and was delighted with the peace and quiet in the rooms and corridors. Many hotels can be quite noisy with chamber maids knocking at the door at 8a.m. but it felt like we were alone in the hotel! The staff in the cafe, bar and breakfast dining room were very friendly and the receptionist was... More

I am glad you enjoyed the peace and quietness of our bedrooms which is nice to know even though we had a full house all last week. We usually get great compliments about our breakfast, the sausages are produced locally by Una Dwyer of Cashel and have received both national and International awards however I have passed on your comments...

Stayed for 3 nights. Larger hotel than I imagined and seemed full most nights we were there. Plenty of staff and efficient and friendly throughout the stay. I liked the large snack/ coffee area off reception, nice decor with loads of sofas. Despite there being a dining room most residents seemed to prefer the large bar and lounge to eat... More

Usually rave about this place but yesterday, sadly, my daughter and I were underwhelmed having arrived very tired for a meal and a break en route from Dublin having driven up from Cork that morning early. The shop was its usual pleasant little spot to browse in and pick up a present for a relative. The coffee dock had a... More

Although you "usually rave about the place" and "it is one of your favourite stops" your first review of the Horse and Jockey is a critical one which seems rather harsh it is as if you based your comments on a previous reviewer. Notwithstanding this I take your comments on board although I would like to point we completely redecorated... More

I could not have been more impressed by the staff in the hotel on my recent visit. They were extremely professional and obliging particularly a young woman in the coffee dock near the leisure centre. Unfortunately I was unable to catch her name however she was a small young woman with blonde hair. She was extremely pleasant and it was... More

Called into Horse and Jockey for an evening meal, immediately after a major GAA match in nearby Thurles. Crowds were about to descend on the hotel, and we felt lucky to get a table.
