Realy lovely, big room! Very clean and comfortable. Room was very warm and couldn't get the air-con to work, but the windows opened. but this was reported to reception who asked someone to take a look. Really nice breakfast.

I liked this property and would stay there again. Did not eat in the hotel. Lighting in the bathroom could be a bit better, but other than that this hotel met or exceeded my expectations.

Spacious and comfortable
Spacious, sunny room, attractive, clean and well organised. A lovely lodge overlooking the that sense of space from the road. Staff were v helpful, quick to respond and friendly/professional. Extremely convenient for the city, without being in the centre, you can walk to everything....galleries, shops etc. I felt v happy and comfortable there. Beautiful university grounds within a few mins and a v beautiful park/gardens/museum by the river nearby....if you fancy a stroll and tranquility. I'd recommend it. Only one thing that disappointed me:I would have v much appreciated a radio (the radio did not work on TV).... otherwise, a great memory and I'll be back.

This hotel was PERFECT! Located centrally, the staff was friendly and accommodating. Due to COVID restrictions they're not cleaning rooms every day, but the place remained spotless, and they left a care package outside of our door with linens and such first thing in the AM! There is construction currently going on across the street and next door, but with the windows shut the noise was not loud. Comfy beds, great price, EASY parking, and excellent staff made this a great stay.

Great staff, friendly and helpful. Breakfast was really nice. Room was alright, shower/tub had plenty of hot water with strong pressure. Room was actually hard to cool down, but did eventually with the open window and included fan. The only real issue was the construction around the hotel. Immediately behind, and also next door there are major construction sites that begin work early, so don’t plan on sleeping in. The huge crane right behind the hotel is brightly lit at night, so the room had some light coming in around the curtains. Not a big deal for us but if you need a pitch black room would be a problem. There is construction up and down the river in Cork, so there’s nothing the hotel can do about it. I would guess by summertime the construction would be done, but you may want to check. Cork is a really fun city, and almost everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a great location to walk to many of the city highlights.
