Reviewed 27 September 2016

Perfect location if you do not intend going to the City that is as there is easy access to it. Staff are very nice and nothing is a bother to them they are very helpful and friendly. Rooms are basic but clean and spacious. Meeting room was large bright and comfortable. Plenty of choice at the breakfast buffet.

Comfortable stay in Cork. It's pretty far from town but we took the bus in as there's a stop right out front and took a taxi for 7€ back. The rooms were comfortable with two queen beds. It has free parking as well. Breakfast was good, a made to order full Irish. I might pick something more central if I'm...

Many thanks for your review. Whilst we are about 3km from the City centre as you point out it is approx €7 in a taxi - less than €2 per person for four. The benefits are free parking, bigger rooms and you're half way to Blarney!

We were staying at this place for 1 night, on our way to Dublin. The reception staff was nice. We got our room at the end of the hall. Everything was good until the evening! The shower drain was so blocked that I have to turn on and off the water to prevent a flooding when taking a quick shower...

The hotel does not look or feel expensive. We needed hotel staff to let us into our room everytime as the key system was broken. They did apologise for this. Breakfast was a real treat though - our server was a delight. The cold buffet was small but had a bit of everything and the full irish breakfast looked and...

This is an easy hotel to get to on the outskirts of Cork, fine for one night but no more. I would also not suggest staying here if you want to see Cork as it is in an industrial type area. McDonalds down the road, and that's about it. Pleasant staff on arrival, huge rooms and large bathroom. However, upon...

Thanks for taking the time to review us. Whilst we aren't in the City centre we are only a short bus ride away from both the city centre and Blarney. It is a pity that you didn't get the opportunity to sample our food offerings as I am sure you would have been very happy with them.
