Staff were helpful and friendly. The only problem we had was that the WiFi would not work for the first day, but an engineer was called in to fix it on day two, so no cause for complaint there. The kitchen was well equipped for self-catering. We would certainly return if in the area again.

Stayed in one of the apartments for 3 nights and had an enjoyable stay. Clean & comfortable, well equipped apartment within easy walking distance of the city. Free parking was an added bonus. Highly recommended.

A perfect location--very close to the city centre, parks and for getting out to west Cork if you have a car. The young lady on reception was very helpful. The rooms were nice and modern. The kitchen was good and the kids loved the Tvs in each room. Could not get wifi to work. I would stay here again next...

We spent 2 nights in a one bedroom apartment. The apartment was recently renovated so everything was new. Very spacious living room and kitchen, good sized bedroom and small but adequate bathroom. Very well equipped - perfect for a longer term stay for someone who needs to be close to the University. The place is literally across the street from...

I've stayed on one of the apartments for 30+ days. Felt it was very confortable, there was cleaning service almost every day that would make the bed, change towels, remove trash and lightly clean the apartament. Utensils wise, it's fairly equipped. Had some problems with the TV which, though not rapidly taken care, it was well handed by the staff....

I recently had to spend 6 months (yes, 6 months) in College View apartments due to a work assignment in Cork. The apartments are quite small and basic, but clean and tidy and complete with all the facilities I needed to feel at home for this length of time. They are in a nice location on Western Road close to...

We found these apartments very conveniently situated as an easy walk into the centre of Cork. The manager is a delight to deal with. On arrival we found she had upgraded us to a one bedroom apartment as we were staying a few days. This certainly gave us a lot more room. There was also parking nearby. Our room was...

First off let me say the staff and owner were lovely however not lovely enough to make up for this experience! When we first arrived the room looked lovely, small (with a large single bed rather than a double) . It had recently been done up and I think this is probably what covered up how bad it really was...
