Spent New Year's Eve in Cork and stayed at this hotel. The double room was perfectly adequate and the hotel ideally located for the city centre - we were out until 2 a.m. so really only used the hotel for sleeping in and the resident's bar which was ok, altho' the G&T was pretty bad. Staff were helpful and room was clean.
Best thing about it: it's on the same street as the Sakura Japanese Restaurant which is fantastic.

stayed here as it was one of the only ones avaliable. did expect it to be quite noisy as we had a room right next to the road but it was surprisingly quiet. room service and food was good. parking is a bit of a let down.

We went to Cork on a Christmas shopping trip and last minute decided to stay over and make a night of it. Popped in to the Gresham Metropole and got a room, 70.oo including parking (ya parking is slightly down the street in a public car park, but no inconvenience) The hotel is perfect for a shopping trip, 2 minutes to the shops. Receptionist and bar staff were all welcoming and friendly. Didn't opt for the breakfast. The room and bathroom were small and a bit dated but immaculately clean, the bed was very comfortable and we had a perfect sleep. I would most definitely stay again, if I planned a longer trip I would upgrade to a larger room. However for us on this occasion it was ideal,

Great value hotel in an awesome location to the city center yet far enough removed to have a very good nights sleep. Staff both friendly & informative on where to go eat/socialize.

No faults with the swimming pool, clean and cared for.

Breakfast on par with every other good hotel.

I've stayed repeatedly over the years and will continue to do so.

I stayed in the Gresham Metropole Cork during my Ireland trip for one night.

Let me start with the positives - Very good location, right across the bus station, overlooking the river, 2 minutes walk from the high street and shopping centre, good food at the restaurant. The staff were freindly and helped us in planning our day in Cork (since we only had one day). They kept our luggage safely in the cloak room after we checked out and wanted to do some sightseeing in Cork.

The best part was that the bus to Dublin (Aircoach) starts from right in front of the hotel, so if you are travelling by bus you need not move around with your luggage. The hotel also has a nice swimming pool and a good gym. Wi-fi was fast and free.

However, the room was extremely small with hardly any space to move around..even though it was a double room. The bed was smaller than an average queen bed..so I did not personally like the room. The breakfast was ok..buffet for both hot and cold..quality was average.

So other than the size of the room, everything else was good.
