It's an impressive looking hotel from the front, which continues into the lobby. This reminds me of days gone by, plush, expensive looking, and posh. Check in can take a while as a lot of people are coming and going, and there were never more than two people on reception. The lift is quite quaint, with red carpet on the...

This is an excellent good value hotel and centrally located for ease of access to all the amenities in Cork. There is also good value parking in a nearby car park associated with the hotel. I will definitely come here again when my business meetings are in Cork city centre.

This hotel is in a great location, perfect for exploring the city on foot. It is very accessible by train or bus, a ten minute walk to both stations. This central location does mean some traffic noise, however, particularly in the morning if the window is left open. While our room was very clean and comfortable, it was in need...

Dear cliona508, Thank you for your review. Unfortunately as a city centre hotel a certain amount of traffic noise is inevitable, we are located on MacCurtain street which has a fantastic selection of bars and restaurants and is close to the train station, bus station and city center shops. I have the pleasure of working with a great team here...

I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough! My fiancé and I were fortunate enough to be booked into one of the newly renovated rooms, which resemble a New York loft style apartment. The facilities in the room exceeded our expectations. Slippers, nespresso machine, good toiletries, recent magazines and importantly a large, very comfortable bed. The staff are wonderful and the...

Hotel is very convenient for shoppers, or those with various appointments in Cork. Staff were very helpful as we do not like lifts, and placed us in a very comfortable room. Breakfast was excellent, though we had dinner elsewhere,with our son. The cost for the overnight stay was very keen ( some B & B's were more expensive).
