I would highly recommend this hotel. We had an amazing time here where we enjoyed the terrace and tasty cocktails in the Glasshouse. The breakfast was the nicest I have ever had. Such attention to detail and all food from both the buffet and the menu was so fresh! From the minute we stepped inside, the staff took our bags and we didn’t have to worry about anything. Staff were all so helpful and friendly! We will definitely be back!

Just heading home after a lovely spa night away with my aunt. It was fabulous! Warmly welcomed by the lovely staff. Our spa treatments were booked on check out day so we were given a late check out. Very relaxing atmosphere and excellent service from reception, restaurant, porter, spa and house keeping staff. A particular thanks to Sean, Katherine, Jennifer, Niamh and Patricia. Also really Appreciated your recycling efforts with your bins in the bedroom. Thanks for a great stay. We will be back. ..I really want to try out your lovely cinema!

This is a hotel I just keep going back to. I love the interior , the food , the drinks , the staff , everything! They have an amazing new cocktail bar called the glass house and it does not disappoint. The staff are so attentive and friendly nothing is a problem. They have a spa and an in house cinema room . It’s perfect for a couples night away or for a night away with the girls . I have two more stays coming up this year and cannot wait . If your looking for a hotel in cork … don’t hesitate this is the hotel !! You won’t be sorry !

The staff go above and beyond to make your stay special. I can’t thank Jake and Fabian enough! They were amazing and it was not just ourselves who thought so other guests commented on their high level of service, professionalism and their fun and positive manor. They are an asset to the hotel. The hotel has the most amazing views and glasshouse cocktail bar. The food was very good and the attention to detail outstanding. Looking forward to our next stand already!

Our room was very small. We were on our honeymoon and it seemed as though we were treated as an afterthought. The reception ladies were not friendly and their attitudes were very snobby. We left the room after arriving and placed a DO NOT DISTURB sign on the door. When we returned, someone had come in to our room and placed a bottle of gross sparkling wine on our table with a note congratulating us. It was a nice gesture! We just didn't appreciate someone coming in after we weren't there. Sharing the pool/gym/spa, etc. with outside guests was not told to us so it was always busy. The restaurant view terrace was very nice! That was the best part besides the Bellevue Spa! The king bed took up 3/4 of the room so it was hard to get around. The shower only had a 1/2 door so the floor always got wet when showering. The sink took up way too much of the counter so there was hardly any space to put anything. The decor was stunning and asthetically pleasing, though those things do not make it a 4 star hotel!

We loved our stay! Location was great with amazing views of Cork. Prior to arrival we were contacted by Danielle offering to help with restaurant recommendations or anything else we needed. It’s always nice when a hotel takes the time to do this and personalize your stay. We stayed in a lovely suite which had the coolest decorations including an actual record player with albums we played during our stay. All we’re good! We enjoyed the beautiful weather during our stay sitting out on the restaurant balcony - gorgeous views - and loved the bottle of rosé recommended by our waiter. A perfect moment. We had the privilege to meet Danielle who had contacted us prior to our stay and she was as amazing and helpful during our stay as she was prior. She and everyone here made this our favorite stay during our 2 1/2 week house hunting trip in Ireland and we look forward to returning soon! Love this hotel and love Cork!
