Reviewed August 10, 2012

Had no towels upon arrival, found someone's tissues in the drawer! Staff were very friendly too and generally it was good!! The beds were comfortable but from our room you could hear the busy road nearby when the window was open!but not bad at all overal

We had a lovely room. Fresh linen every day. Good powerful shower. Toiletries in the bathroom were plentiful. Big flat screen telly on the wall. Breakfast was wonderful and staff very friendly. There was coffee/tea facilities in the room. Unfortunately I cannot drink caffeine but when I requested decaff coffee it was immediately made available to me. Somebody brought some in a little dish in my bedroom so I could have some for the rest of our stay (we stayed there 2 nights). Staff was friendly and helpful.

We were here for one night. Our room was spacious and also had a sun room as well as the bedroom. There is plenty of space for car parking, and a bus over the road will take you straight in to the city centre. We booked via expedia and breakfast was not included: we paid for breakfast (just under 10 euros each - there is no where else within walking distance to eat) and it was excellent. Most hotels and B&Bs do not provide fresh fruit (it is often tinned) but there was a feast of fresh fruit, toast, cereals, smoked salmon and cooked meals which reminded me of the meals Enid Blyton's Famous Five used to have. Staff in the dining area were friendly without being intrusive.

This was a nice experience overall. The rooms were spacious and we had our own bathroom. There is plenty of parking and for e1.70, the bus will take you into town from a nearby bus stop and will drop you off at the entrance to the Belvedere. Vincent was especially nice and provided plenty of information on Cork and how to best get around. There is a beautiful garden out back that you can go to for respid. The breakfast is hearty with a plentiful bar of cereals, breads, juices and pastries. The breakfast plates include scrambled eggs and a full Irish breakfast, which was splendid. *** However, we were somewhat taken aback when handed a bill for our breakfasts on our last day.*** We, too, would have chosen other restaurants had we known we would be charged this much for our meals. I would give a rating of 3.5 based on this last surprise.

Adequate accommodation, somewhat soulless. Taken aback after breakfast when sitting in nearby waiting area to hear staff member criticising my request for green tea and the fact that I went to my room for my own supply when none was available. Not nice to hear and has put me off staying again. Internet access poor. Nobody identified themselves to me and I wasn't sure if owners lived there or were available. Could even have been the owner ridiculing the guest!

We enjoyed our stay at this B&B. Whilst I usually prefer hotels, we thought we'd give this one a go as it appears to be more like a small hotel than a B&B. Our room for 4 was large and plenty of room with ensuite.

Breakfast was lovely with friendly staff making sure we had everything we needed.

Plenty of car parking in front. The lodge is located right next to a busy freeway so no beautiful views which is all it's really missing.

Our rooms were clean and spacious with good bathrooms and the owners were friendly. Lots of space for parking, which is needed as the hostel is not very central to Cork city centre, around 10 mins drive away. ***Be careful to check whether your room rate includes breakfast as we were rather surprised to be charged extra for breakfast at the end of our stay when the owner told us our rate was room only (We were under the impression it was a B&B). We would have eaten elsewhere for cheaper if we had known***
