I thought that I had done my research before we headed to Cork for the weekend, I thought that I had selected a Guest House with character, what I got was Fawlty Towers without the humour !
On arrival we were met by a young girl who to be fair, tried her best. We were shown to our " luxury " room, sadly where the curtains should have been there was just fixing holes. Tatty roller blinds then, to block out the traffic noise . The bed ,to be fair, was large and the bedding clean, shame they did'nt bother to make it up at any time ! It was strictly self service, remind me, how many stars do they claim ?
The heating in our double room was ok, however the family room that my mother was moved to was freezing ( she was moved as soon as we got there due to the fact that the girl could'nt get the door to lock, just as well really, she was'nt that keen on the sweat stained faux suede headboard in the first room )
Breakfast rubbish,can the veggie option really only run to fried eggs and beans ? Are these the new owners that are trading on past high standards ?
Don't be fooled by the nice website, the pictures are years out of date. This establishment is well past needing a makeover.
To summarise, clean ,but very basic.A Zero star B& B !
Can it get worse ? well the location was terrible, overlooking a busy dual carrigeway, a 12 euro cab ride into town.
I think I'm done ! give this place a miss !
