The staff were absolutely great here. Excellent parking which is amazing in Cork city. Rooms were clean and fresh. But the noise levels were horrendous facing the river ...rubbish trucks at 5am...students all night...buses all day....so I would highly recommend this hotel but maybe request a room at the back of the hotel.

Lancaster Lodge is located in a wonderful area of Cork with an easy walk to shopping and restaurants. The "lodge" is nothing fancy but was clean and fine for the night. A nice breakfast was served. The staff was friendly and accommodating.

My daughter and I stayed for one night. We had a bit of trouble finding it but that was probably our fault. The room was nice and quite. A short walk to the city center. We could not figure out to operate the air conditioner but an open window really helped

The hotel is in a good location about 10 mins walk into the centre. Even better it is opposite a lovely small pub and a fabulous vegetarian restaurant. The room was comfortable and clean with good facilities and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Great breakfast with plenty of choice. Only downside was no outdoor space where you could...

A modern hotel in a convenient location. We had a couple of concerns which were dealt with effectively. Our initial room on the 4th floor appeared to be in the attic. It was very warm (even when outside it was 16C) and the small window didn't allow enough air into the bed area. Our replacement room on floor 2 was... More

Lancaster lodge is like staying at a hotel! Rooms have their own key card, reception area when you check in, car park. River Lee hotel next door have fab bar and food which is only a short walk away. Lancaster lodge is an excellent location for going out or shopping in the city centre. Will be staying again

Excellent breakfast - friendly staff - clean and comfortable rooms - really need both shampoo and conditioner in bathroom - as I was only there for a couple of days and travelled with hand luggage only it would have saved me buying the smallest one possible and leaving it there as security at the airport would not accept it but...

Excellent hotel. Room was very nice and breakfast was outstanding. I have stayed at more expensive hotels in Cork and they are not even close to the level of service. Convenient to downtown and the price is quite reasonable.
