“Clean, in downtown, lovely”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013 via mobile

I stayed here for buisness. Loved the stay, the Asian restaurant is not good, but Oysters is lovely. Love their breakfast. Rooms are clean some stains are seen on the bathroom floor and the carpet, but it is clean. The bed is confortable. Close to restaurants and shopping area

Stayed April 2013, traveled on business

I treated a friend recently for her 60th birthday and we had a superb 4 course meal for €35 pp. We were first presented with an Amuse Bouche of Gazpacho, then a selection of home made breads with 2 tasty pates. Our starter of Tempura of plaice was beautifully presented in green, white and gold. Main course of Pork Belly was tender and scrumptious and our Trio of Desserts ( a rich choc cake, sorbet and walnut meringue) was again beautifully presented and delicious. The service was excellent from beginning to end. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and will be back!

Really ideal for short break with family. Excellent facilities - friendly service and fabulous location in Ireland's real capital!
Nice pool and gym facilities- very caring staff in kids club. Spotlessly clean s d good value for money.

We stayed over the Easter Holiday and the hotel and staff are lovely. They had numerous activities for the kids who would have rather stayed indoors the entire visit. The rooms have all of the essentials and are quite clean. As a tip, add the breakfast beforehand to save yourself a few €.

Thank you for your recent review and delighted you enjoyed your Easter stay with us, we are especially thrilled the kids club impressed you, which is in operation throughout Easter and mid term breaks and throughout Christmas holidays. We do hope you will stay with us again when you are next visiting Cork City.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay (15 women) in Clarion Hotel Cork last weekend (23rd March 2013). We received a super friendly & helpful welcome at check in. Food was excellent in Kudos restaurant & breakfast was delicious. Great atmosphere in hotel. Rooms (ESP the hen's suite) were amazing, so clean & well equipped & had free wifi for all our face bookers!!! Would highly recommend the hotel to all for its central location, excellent customer service & reasonable rates. Special thanks to Anne Marie O'Connor & Raymond Kelleher for all their help : )

A large group of mainly older people stayed in this hotel last weekend. Everything was perfect, professional helful and friendly reception staff, top class rooms, excellent food, we had dinner there on both nights, and there was not a single complaint. The hotel is ideally located close to all services in Cork. We had a wonderful tour of west Cork on Saturday following the Michael Collins trail, organised by the Michael Collins centre in Clonakilty. The hotel staff were warm and friendly and service was excellent. We will return!!

Room Tip: all the rooms allocated were quiet and comfortable.

Stayed there last weekend as I had come to limerick for a night out with friends...
Location is excellent
Price is very reasonable
Staff friendly and polite...
Didn't get to go to the pool, pity seeing as I love a good dip.
I go to the clarion in the IFSC a lot but this one location wise is just as good if not better than the Dublin hotel.
Only bad thing was the grout in the shower could be redone...
Also I work in hotels and what I find fantastic is that they even have a guest relations manager that replays to social media...
This hotel and their management get the thumbs up from me.
All around ++ from me ;)
