We arrived at the hotel to a warm and friendly welcome from receptionist Natalie Horgan who took time to tell us about local attractions and how to get to them. The food in the restaurant is of a high standard. I would recommend booking a Deluxe room as this gives you access to an exclusive executive lounge.

Good hotel. Very central. Parking excellent. We were there for two nights. Had a standard room, but really good facilities. Good to have a walk-in shower and plenty of toiletries. Would love to look at the luxury rooms because the standard was better than some luxury rooms in other hotels.

Great location good choice for Cork

The hotel was lovely and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were quite standard but well maintained and clean. We ate breakfast out rather than pay 14 euros each as there are at least 3 great cafe/restaurants on the same road within easy walking distance at a much cheaper price. Liberty Grill about 100metres away is an amazing place to eat at night or breakfast

Perfect

Used the hotel simply as a place to sleep and get ready so we were not in the hotel for long. However the staff were very nice, rooms comfortable, clean and well equipped. Perfect location by the river and a short pleasant walk into the city centre. Highly recommended and would stay again.

Weekend city break in Cork

We had a wonderful two nights' stay at this sparkly hotel! It's 5 minutes' walk from the centre of town, just what you need for exploring the city. The room was perfect the lobby areas were big and comfy too. Friendly and welcoming staff. Only regret was we didn't have enough time to try the leisure centre - will have to do this on the next visit :)
