I was at meetings for a company in the Eastgate Business park - the hotel is more or less on the campus. Its close by and it has everything you need. Full service hotel without the high prices. Free fantastic breakfast - great food, friendly and helpful staff - free wifi (which is a checklist item for me) I cant find anything not to like about it. The pricing is reasonable and its a good value for business people especially if you are wanting to be near the east gate business park. I checked in and the staff contacted me and said - how about we move you to this better room? Who does that in the US? They helped me move to a better upgraded room without me asking for it and carried my stuff - and get this - would not accept a tip. The culture here is service oriented and customer oriented - this would rarely if ever happen in the US. Wonderful service - would I stay anywhere else in Cork - probably not.

Room Tip: away from the bar - the music noise can get loud. Just ask staff for a quiet room.

The room and bathroom were very clean, aesthetically pleasing and spacious with a nice contemporary look. We really enjoyed the king size bed with amazingly comfortable pillows. We had drinks at the bar in the evening where we met Martin who made me a delicious daiquiri. He made our stay unforgettable through his kindness and helpfulness. He took time to speak to us despite being busy and offered us help with things to do in Cork. We felt he genuinely cared about us. He even came to greet us at breakfast the next morning and wish us a pleasant day. The Island Grill bar food was really good and we would definitely recommend their pizzas!

Myself and my friend did the "Girls just wanna have fun" spa package at the hotel yesterday. This included 3 treatments and lunch and a cocktail in the hotel bar. I can't say enough about the Spa! The staff were wonderful and I got one of the best massages ever. The pool is great with lots of jets and includes a sauna and a steam room. The relaxation area was wonderful, quiet and serene. Great Customer Service in the Spa.
Prior to going into the spa we had tea for 2 and a scone for 1, it cost 7.95 which is very pricey. Then we went for lunch after the spa. The service in the bar is very, very slow. I ordered vegetarian pasta with goats cheese and my friend ordered the chowder. After a 20 minute wait, we were served by a friendly waitress. The quality of the food wasn't good. The goat's cheese was almost non-existent on my pasta and the chowder was watery and not very nice! I would not revisit the bar again unless someone told me that the food and service had improved.
You have lots of good things going on at the hotel but there are definitely areas for improvement. Thanks.

On business in Cork for first time so took the gamble with internet search engine and recommendations from Trip Advisor.

Didn't arrive until late but staff were friendly and efficient for check in. Room was very spacious and had all the amenities that a business traveller could require. Only concern was I was given a twin room and don't sleep that well in single bed, but was too late and I was too tired to ask reception for a swap for only one night.

Plenty free parking and free internet access included in room cost which is always a winner for the business man.

Had dinner in bar rather than restaurant and found the food to be of a good standard, although a bit cold on arrival. The breakfast was ok, standard buffet for €15 which seems the going rate in these types of hotels at present.

One issue I did have was locating the hotel, entrance from business park is not well sign posted.

Best testimony I can give is I would probably go back when next in Cork.

Room Tip: Based on my room all seem good.

My wife,2 kids (aged 7 and 3) and I recently stayed at the Radisson Blu Hotel Cork and had a great time. The room was very spacious, immaculately clean and perfect for our 2 night stay. The Leisure centre was one of the best we have ever used and the kids just loved it. Again it was obvious that cleanliness and hygiene was of the highest standard. We dined in on both nights and found the food excellent. The kids menu was perfect so our 2 boys went to bed very happy looking forward to their breakfasts which once again, met all our expectations. Well stocked with a large selection of hot and cold options. Overall, food-wise, we would give it 10/10 as kids can be sometimes fussy and hard to please but they were totally satisfied and happy. We were offered a prompt checkout by a lovely receptionist who guided us through our bill ensuring we were happy with everything before we settled up. On a last note, our enjoyment of the hotel and its facilities were always the main concern of any staff members we dealt with over the weekend and we will definitely be back in the mid term 2014.

I stayed here with my husband on a weekend break. The hotel and staff were amazing, that is all but one. Ian the trainee manager (as I was informed) is the most arrogant and rude person I have ever met. The way in which he spoke to me was very very rude and for future reference I will be taking my buisness elsewhere!
