      the entertainment / singer was exellent a true musician

      1 family was allowed to take over the bar where other patrons of the hotel were eating & trying to relax & watch television ie the european cup final + then they produced a guitar + singing over everyone this is bad management some one should have allocated a seperate room for this function

      nice lounge bar, excellent customer service and staff, good food.

      Location was too far out to be classed as walking distance. This would not suit older people who struggle up hill as it is up a very long large hill!! However, this was far better value for money than the one we stayed in in Dublin. I would go back to this hotel. Also, they should serve salad and chips, not just one or the other.

      a short walk to the main sights of the city centre, nice views of the city on the way, very clean rooms

    • Older travelers

      The bedroom was new and in excellent condition, The bedclothes were very well laundered and pressed. Ideal if one needs just somewhere to sleep and shower. I did not explore the other services provided by the hotel so I cannot comment further

      Care needs to be taken entering the hotel grounds as the roads are narrow and steep but by driving slowly and carefully this can be overcome

      The staff was quite helpful, the facility of the hotel was great .but not the bar and restaurant.

      The bar food was the thing really disappointed us.

      Pleasant and helpful staff. Ideally situated for city and close enough to the coast. Terrific gym and swimming pool. I admire that you insist on bathing caps being worn, well done!

      The hotel staff were extremely friendly, helpful and courteous. The view of the city was magnificent from the upstairs lobby

      The bedroom was not great - pretty basic and the walls were damp in places. The bath was tired and worn looking

      It had a nice lounge and the restaurant food was excellent. Enjoyed the pool at the leisure centre, it was a good size. The hotel was quiet at the time we were staying and it never seemed crowded which was good.

      It was our anniversary and we asked for a nice room, we got put in one that over looked the road leading to the leisure centre. The noise from the heating funnel outside which was quite large, kept me awake for ages. our room was no. 140. would not recommend that one for a quiet night. I personally found the walk to and from the hotel to the city centre too steep and I would be quite fit. Would stay somewhere closer to Cork city centre with less of a walk.
