Recently stayed with my partner at the imperial cork as a treat for valentines :) , stayed one night as part of a package deal . 1299pps it included champers an chocs on arrival in our room , followed by 2 back massages , We had over an hour in the vitality suite beforehand, as a bonus we got a foot rub which wasnt expected , After our massage we got to lounge around in the relaxation room for as long as we wanted , Then onto our 3 course dinner with a complimentry drink , Food was fab an atomsphere was a delight , Meal was served very quickly an staff were very polite an helpful , There girls in the spa were lovely an really made us feel welcome . Then to top it off breakfast in the morning , We couldnt have asked for more really !!! oh and live entertainment in the bar afterwards always a plus ....

Room Tip: Not sure what the family rooms are like but the standard rooms are very small , Noise level same as...

My Mum and I stayed in this hotel last christmas for one night and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was very nice and breakfast delicious. The staff were pleasent and overall I would return, the only negative is the parking, its a good walk from the hotel.

The Hotel is very central have to say that, if you looking for something in the middle of Cork centre. Parking is a big minus. If you have few bags, prepare yourself for a long walk :) Stayed Sunday night, couldnt sleep for the most of it, because of the noice on the street beside it... On a good side, breakfast was top class! Will stay again anyway, because the price is good for most days...

Room Tip: Few corner rooms have VERY load air conditioners outside, near the windows...

The hotel is a busy, bustling place conveniently located to all of downtown Cork. You can easily walk to all the nearby shopping and restaurants. The parking however is in a garage several blocks away. The hotel restaurant had a very nice breakfast but dinner there was pretty average.

such a charming hotel - was only one night there for business, but found the location really central and the the room was excellent - equipped with everything you could need. I was particularly impressed in being phoned by reception about a half hour after check-in to see that the room was comfortable and I had everything.
We had the early bird which was sumptuous and they equally amaneged without any fuss a an equally sumptuous meal for onw of our group who was coeliac.
The bar afterwards was very cosy despite not being full - having lots of areas at different levels giving the feeling of comfort.
My only reservation would be the limited space outside the hotel to stop off to check in and the location of the car park which although close, is a little tedious to find and return from. However this would not keep me from taying mu next visit to Cork

Cork is a gem of a city and this hotel was a great spot to explore and walk to city center attractions. The hotel room was very clean; everything in the bathroom was functioning and there was good water pressure. I had a corner room with two windows and slept with them open all night. The hotel has a great pub, spacious and well appointed. Food was also very good, and the waitresses who served us had a great sense of humor, a combination of charm and class.
I was with a tour group whem I stayed here, but I would go back here the next time I travel to Cork on my own.

Stayed here recently for one night and cannot wait to return. From check-in to the bedrooms and food everything was top notch. The hotel was spotlessly clean and wonderful staff. Breakfast was excellent and one cannot beat the location of this hotel when in Cork. Well done everyone!
