My boyfriend booked an overnight stay here as a suprise in February. When we arrived early to the hotel and it was nice to discover our room was ready. We had a lovely spacious room on the 3rd floor. Plenty of space and the bathroom was a nice size too. Location is ideal in Cork City centre within walking distance...

This is a lovely hotel. Quiet. Central. Friendly. Reasonable. I went for a special occasion and Siobhan upgraded me to an amazing room. I'll never stay anywhere else. I've stayed in a few hotels in Cork and nothing comes near the experience here. Super breakfast too and lovely staff.

When I arrived in Cork, my luggage did not. I went to check in and since I was there early my room was not available. Allison was so great in providing me directions to the nearest mall so I could buy the necessities that I needed for the next morning (assuming my luggage would not arrive that evening). She provided...

The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast is fantastic and the location is great. The room was fine however the bathroom could do with an update. In summary, this is a good choice for a centrally located and reasonably priced hotel with Cork City on your doorstep.

I attended a banquet/ball here last weekend and the service was extremely poor to put it bluntly. Due to delays in allowing people into the event dinner was delayed by over an hour with food not being served until nearly 9pm. The mains were tiny and to add insult to injury they then ran out of mains and offered people...
