I stayed at this hotel on a Friday and Saturday night as I was attending an event at the hotel. Everything about the hotel was first class. The reception staff were very pleasant, the room quality was excellent and the food was fabulous. The room itself was presented impeccably and amongst the usual stuff had a 6ft wide bed, and a plasma tv. The bathroom had a heated floor, seperate bath and shower cubicle with power shower. It felt like a bit of a maze to get from the lift to my room as the rooms don't all lead off easily from that area. The floor numbering system was a little strange. Rooms beginning with 2 are found on floor 1, beginning 3 on floor 2 etc.
I had breakfast and dinner at this hotel. The breakfast was fine and the dinner was excellent.
The only real downside to this hotel is its location in Cork - it is about 6 miles away from the centre. There is a small shopping centre nearby though. I did find the traffic in Cork to be extremely busy and not that different to London traffic when I was there - however that could be due to the usual Christmas holiday shoppers.
At some point in the next year I will be keen to stay here again and would recommend it highly.
