10/10 Amazing

06 November 2014

Great hotel

The hotel is situated slightly out of the centre overlooking cork city as had been said in other reviews. It is however a great base from which to explore the wider cork area. The price we paid through Aplharooms was good value for money. The rooms were very large and well presented. We ate in and found the food to be excellent.

The best thing about my stay was...

The service, which was good, but not overpowering.
8/10 Great

Fab Hotel, Great Service and value

We were really surprised by by the spacious rooms and even a balcony with a view over the city, as the price was so reasonable. But a city view means hills, so good joints are necessary (bad knee, so it was relevant to me). Didn't bother the rest of the group though. Def recommend.

The best thing about my stay was...

Room size, view, service and price
