This hotel is an aging classic situated high above cork city.On arrival the reception staff were more than helpful and all done with a smile. Our room was 208 a large room with a fantastic view across cork, it had all the amenities you would expect of a 4 star hotel and the bathroom was functional with a good shower or the option to have a soak in the tub. The hotel has two bars one of which seem to open alternative days the staff however were nothing but pleasant and helpful nothing seemed to be to much trouble but I guess its all the charm of the emerald Isle.The breakfast was superb with the option of either a fully cooked or a continental choice all very good, except one small moan hard to get whole meal toast, low fat milk or margarine.
This hotel is not for the faint hearted as it is on the top of a hill walking down to the town is fine coming back you need to either be fit or get a taxi quite,a challenge after a good meal and a few beers. Would I stay here again yes I would it met my basic expectations and the pleasant staff made our stay a memorable one.
