The hotel itself is modern, spotless and well equipped. The menu at the bar was varied and the food and service was very good. The...

In total I stayed here for three nights, I received a spacious room with 3 single beds. Therefore the room was bigger then average, which was great. Also the breakfast is very extensive and good quality.

I stay in this hotel about once a week and I am totally satisfied each time I stay. From the friendliness of the staff on arrival you just know your visit will be special. I have been staying in this hotel about 7 years and nothing would make me want to stay anywhere else. I think that says it all....

I felt that my experience was truly average and thus deserves a three star rating. We stayed here for two nights during our vacation. The hotel is uninteresting and completely generic. It could have been any hotel in any city. I didn't find anything special or unique here. The staff were nice but did nothing more or less than required....

A really good and relaxing hotel. When unwinding and preparing for meetings. The executive lounge provided a welcome break for a chat with colleagues, giving a clear advantage when travelling with colleagues. Food was good and a nice range of services. Every thing from formal dining to lite bites. I think that a bit more separation of dining areas would...

We had a very nice stay at The River Lee. Room was comfortable and well appointed, and the bathroom was nice. Attended a reception in the hotel, which was nicely done and had the a representative from Waterford there showing the cutting technique. Nice area, close to University Cork College.
