We stayed here for 3 nights and the rooms are large and fairly well equipped, two double beds which were very comfortable. Very good sleep quality.
All rooms are well positioned away from the bar and restaurant. Needs a lot of TLC with the furniture and the decor is a bit dated.
The bathroom is a little basic and could do with more shelf space and a freshen up.
The place is a family run business (linked to my extended family) and has a warm and friendly welcome.
The bar is very spacious and has a good selection of alcohol and has a friendly feel to it as well.
We only used the restaurant for breakfast but this was excellent and served with a smile, Full Irish is highly recommended.
We ate in the bar for Sunday roast lunch and this was really good with a choice of veg and meats and started at 12.30 through to 4.30. Even though the bar was very busy with the lunches, you never waited long to be served.
The hotel is well positioned for Cork and you can easily walk into the City in 30 minutes. Blarney is in the other direction. There is parking at the hotel so if you are driving so this is ideal.
The Commons is in need a lick of paint here and there and but dispite this, the hotel has a good, friendly vibe and that makes the difference for me. The staff on reception / bar / restaurant are courteous and warm and this will always win me over.
