The building and the atmosphere are great, the staff is very professional. The room was big, with a queen sized bed. Fast wi-fi in the hotel, great breakfast, irish or continental style. I had an excellent stay, the only thing to be improved was cleanness of bathroom and the attention to small things (i.e. vanity kit missing from the second...

I booked on line before we left Australia after reading reviews on TA. I booked through the Hotel website. They had a special online for 2 nights including a Dinner, breakfast and a High tea which was better value than just booking the room for 2 nights . We weren't disappointed it was a lovely stay . The room was...

We stayed at the Imperial on Friday night as a treat for my wife's birthday, we have stayed there several times before and as always it was excellent, the staff are always very welcoming and friendly and the location is brilliant for a great night out and for shopping, it is in the heart of Cork City.

I recently revisited the Imperial Hotel in Cork and while it is in a good location central to everything in the city, I have to say it's very expensive for what you get. For the price level (€150) the room was small with a pleasant bathroom. However the shower head was a disaster and I had to chase the water....

I remember staying at the Imperial in 2005 and loved it. I came back ten years later and was delighted to see the same standards upheld. Check-in was swift and friendly ,my stay was quiet and convenient (with it's perfect location in the city) and staff were lovely. Cannot fault this hotel ,it has charm and character

Got a three night 'experience' package, which seemed like good value when you see what's listed on it (some of which is very deceiving). The hotel itself is well located within the city which is good, and the car park is a five minute walk away, which wasn't really ideal for us as we took day trips every day. The...
