We usually stay with friends but on this occasion they were away, so an overnight stay in a Cork hotel was supposed to be a rare treat for us...... But how wrong could one be!! The initial impression of the foyer was good, quick check in and pleasant staff, and in fact the room was ok for one night as long as you didn't want to spend too much time in it due to small size. Good shower I must admit. Where the hotel really let itself down was the dining room and the breakfast service, the cooked breakfast area was run by one extremely harassed young lady who was both having to serve up the food as well as cook what seemed to be mountains of fried eggs. The food when it came was cold, due to a 20 minute wait between being served and the arrival on the plate of poached eggs requested.Surely the good visitors could be trusted to help themselves?? Also we were aware of a lingering smell of stale fried food in the corridors around the bedroom. Not what we had expected from a quality rated hotel
