Great location - near the centre, railway station and bus station. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Nice feel to the hotel. Nothing.
Location Freezing room...radiators on timer no control of the heat
The location was excellent in the centre of Cork with easy access to the City centre on foot. We would have appreciated air conditioning as opening the window resulted in traffic noise.
Good central location in cork with easy access to shops restaurants pubs etc but apart from location a little below average for the price. All and all mediocre at best. No Parking which was a complete nightmare, the hotel does have parking but it is first come first served so when we arrived on friday evening there was none available and no on street available eiter. This meant we ended up paying €20 for parking which I wish we had have put towards a nicer hotel room.
It was central to all local amenties I thought the breakfast was bad value for money nd to expensive for what was served -
Location Stopped serving breakfast at 10.00 am
Central location Receptionist did not know where Queenstown was (I know it's now Cobh, but it is less than 10 miles away & there is a well publicised Heritage Centre there. More education on tourist info needed
I was not happy to discover that they do not have a car park for guests to park their cars. There is a carpark nextdoor but if you wished to park your car there for the night, there would be a charge of thirty euro which I thought was outrageous.
It was within walking distance of city centre The hotel car park was small and did not have room for all guests staying at the hotel
Staff were very friendly and welcoming, the room was very clean and tidy, the hotel is easy to access and is well located in the city.
Great room and bathroom; Awesome breakfast
The Kingsley was a great place to settle down In Cork. The staff were professional and took pride in their work. The rooms were nice and clean. My wife and I really enjoyed our stay. I didn't mind this actually but the Kingsley is about a 15-20 minute walk to the city center. You could take a cab or walk it. The reason i didn't mind was because it was far enough away that you weren't surrounded by the noise.
Good choice of restaurant in a relaxing setting. The staff were welcoming but not in your face.
The luxury and attention to detail and genuinely friendly/helpful staff. Low numbers of Irish staff.
Friendly attentive staff, upgraded room on check-in, which was very comfortable, especially bed Only a minor negative but there was no shower gel in bathroom, had to go & find some from maid
The Food was tasteless.
Hotel facilites were excellent. Superb breakfast and dinner in the evening. Great views of the River Lee and Weir.
had a truely excellent time over a weekend and would highly recommend it to anyone. the staff were friendly and helpful. the rooms were spacious and well equipped and the breakfast were a real treat.
The room was great, really comfortable and modern The staff at the front desk were abrupt and not very welcoming. Need Training!!!!!
Everything was very pleasant and comfortable what you expect from a 5 star hotel,highly recommended. Some of the reception staff were a bit too regimental ,could have been little more friendly.
The staff were very friendly,the location is great - a thoroughly enjoyable visit,to be repeated.
A very nice hotel,will book again. No coffee making facilities in room.
We enjoyed our stay very much. The staff were helpful and friendly. It was a very private setting and we enjoyed the fact that we could come and go without any disturbance. Just a minor detail cups and cutlery were not changed every day
We liked the location. Situated on a hill overlooking the city and just a nice distance for a brisk walk downhill into the city only about 15 minutes. However, returning is all up hill so on some occasions we had to opt for taxis which were all very reasonably priced. The hotel was spotless and very comfortable and the staff were all very welcoming and helpful. Good selection of food and reasonably priced. Gym facilites were excellent - all new varied machines as recently installed and brand new pool, jacuzzi , steam room and sauna. We used all these facilities 2 days running.
The staff were friendly and the place was clean. I had a chicken wrap at the bar which was very disappointing. Instead of a wrap I got what looked like a chicken stew in soy sauce that was quite spicy and not at all what you expect from the menu. Also scrambled egg in the morning had far too much salt in it! The hotel is being renovated and it was a long treck to my room and confusing when the lift didn't work. I thought I left something in my room and rang the hotel. Housekeeping were to call me back but I still haven't heard from them. I since found what I was looking for!
quiet hotel, non invasive staff, good parking, good leisure club
It was a nice stroll from the hotel to the city. I seems now in Ire most 4* Hotels are cutting back and all the guest is left with is functionality, however not even this could be delivered here. A teenage party in one a function room was let continue late into the night, out into the hallways, complete with boy racer stunts in the car park, no sleep. Also typical of these hotels, the traditional Irish breakfast is ruined by these large self-service covered trays with rashers, scrambled? eggs etc, cooked god knows when and dumped into these trays, with the self-digging pleasure left to the "guest". There was a complete lack of any visible manager at all, perhaps they only look in via the web to see occupancy. I noted a little Best Western logo in the bedR, checked not on website, uncool!
Good hotel facilities, standard of room, Hotel easy to find, Found it easy to get to main routes to tour the area. No
Reception staff were lovely. Breakfast food was very nice No spare pillows available in room. No Tea Making facility in room. Staff at breakfast were very un welcoming
I asked for the radio in my room to be fixed and it was fixed by the time I got back that evening which was great. The best facility was the swimming pool - really lovely pool. The lift! doors slow to close. If stairs were available and signposted I'd prefer to use them.
- very friendly staff - humongous pool - hot tub - largest hotel gym I've seen - very clean - English tv :-) - prompt room service - great price - walking distance to cork in very safe community - dinner service was poor. Took a lengthy amount of time to get the bill by asking another waiter - would be nice for reserved parking for hotel guests vs event guests
Loved the location and view. I enjoyed the seating on each floor. Gave us a chance to sit and visit while enjoying the gorgeous view of the river. Would love a quick cafe for coffee in the morning when we didn't want a full breakfast.
facilities in the hotel found the breakfast expensive especially as it was cold. Alot of money if you didn't want to eat much
The location is excellent. It is warm and comfortable. Spotlessly clean I left some items behind and when I phoned the hotel I was told they were not found. Disappointed about that
The comfort of the room, the best of facilities. Really enjoyed my overnight stay.
i thought that it was not very fair that we could not use the leisure centre after 12 md on our deoarture date even ehen we were very willing to pay.
Great facilities ie, fitness center, swimming pool. On arrival we were also upgraded to the deluxe suite with access to executive lounge which was a lovely suprise! Room was really comfortable and quiet also. Good location. Some of the hotel staff (in particular the at the reception & bar) were unfriendly and not very bothered. One receptionist for example seemed put out by me using another family members credit card for booking an extra night (even though I had already booked used it for 2 previous nights and it states that this is fine to do on the website)..."do you not have your own card?" one female receptionist cheekily asked after I explained it was my sisters card. Quite obviously I didn't!! She further questioned me about this in an accusatory manner. It came across as very rude and unprofessional. This is a very small thing but some hair conditioner would have been lovely in bathroom too! Hotel food was over-priced for what you got also...
the pool and gym The fact that the pool did not open until 9am and that there was a mix up with my rate that caused some embarassment at breakfast. when I booked online I included breakfast however the hotel had no record of this when I went for breakfast on the sat. I was also overcharged when the online booking co took payment from my visa card in advance
The pool and closeness to city centre Music in hotel bar was too loud to sit in. 3 out of 5 ladies toilets had no toilet paper at 10pm, response from staff on reception was rude
Rooms warm ,comfortable ,breakfast excellent. Having to use card key in elevator ,card key not working when trying to get into room.However Staff were prompt and excellent when we were designated another room.
Spa treatment was super; back and Indian head massage. The relaxation room after my massage is not really designed for relaxation. It's an open room looking onto the corridor where treatment rooms are located, I stayed but 5 minutes.
Free internet access, good car park, good location
Location to airport with shuttle service Location of loo not good Narrow passage to get to shower if you use loo
the pick up service from the airport was quick the menu was not great, a lot more work needed on that before I eat there again
Th hotel was easily accessible either travelling by car or plane. The rooms were spacious and staff friendly and helpful.
The location at the airport was excellent. Very convenient for travellers. No.
wonderfully friendly helpful staff
Good basic 4 star hotel The breakfeast staff (one male in particular) could do with training on who to talk to and deal with guests.
Location was perfect. Staff was very friendly (for the most part) No
The staff were excellent & very helpfull. Also you can park your car at the hotel & walk or use the hotel coach to &from Airport excelent.
The staff were friendly and helpful. 4 star in price only. An office with a bed rather than a bedroom with a desk.
Eat and slept
The Radisson BLU, Cork is just right beside the airport. We got an early morning flight and was offered a free shuttle bus but we just went for the short walk with our hand-luggage. Also offered coffee and scones in the hotel foyer as it was too-early for breakfast. Absolutely perfect if you are flying from Cork airport or on business. Our room was very spacious with good furniture. Will definitely stay again when next in Cork city.
Relaxing and enjoying the surroundings Disapppointed with restuarant food.
The hotel itself was luxurious and classy. wine 8e per glass 3e per can of coke in the room, menu quite expensive but it was a 5star hotel so i suppose it was always going to be expensive.
Excellent hotel. Service was fantastic. staff were very polite and always helpful. I will definately return
Peace n quiet pool spa etc nice room Lack of kettle n room
beautiful hotel and friendly staff breakfast not great
We really enjoyed the spa facilities and the warm, relaxed & friendly atmosphere around the hotel. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet time away from the hustle & bustle of the city. The hotel restaurant was disappointing. The meal took far too long to be served & the restaurant was quite cold.
No courtesy bus into city.
This is a first class hotel with extremely curteous staff, wonderful location and quality of accommodation. Would definitley recommend this to anyone!! The only down point to the stay was the bed. While the bedding itself was extremely comfortable, it was two (large) single beds pushed together. Due to the carpet protectors on the legs, the bed shifted slightly during the night and if not careful you could fall down between the 2 beds..
Nice, comfortable and warm hotel interior and very comfortable room. Food good but overpriced. Good spa facilities although found the pool and spa water a little cold and for that reason probably will not return for the spa facilities. Booked a very reasonable 2 night stay with booking.com but very disappointed to hear that guests who had spotted a local newspaper advertisement were staying for a night with dinner and breakfast for approx. a third of the price of what we were paying for our room plus dinner. Raised our disappointment with reception staff on departure but even though I called the hotel directly looking for their best rate/offer for our stay I was advised that it was merely unfortunate but that if we didn't read the newspaper advert...
access to cork heating in room does not work and can not be fixed
Central and staff courtesy
Very nice service employees, even the cleaing personal was nice and intelligent. Keep on with this! Perhaps you should make it possible to isolate the doors a little bit more, not totally (Room 241). Every talking on the aisle can be heard. This has nothing to do with the particular case of the strange guitar player and choir at 3 to 6 a.m. in the next room, which was apologized and rewarded.
Breakfast was way to expensive 18 euro plus 5 euro room service is way to expensive!!!
Great Location! Very nice hotel. Restaurant was very good too. Staff (all but one!) were friendly and helpful. The heat! We were on the top floor and the heat in the hall/room was very uncomfortable.
The staff were very pleasant and the rooms were very clean and well maintained
Convenience to centre of town and also the cleanliness of the hotel Not able to open windows so the rooms were a little stuffy. Only way to cool room was to put on air conditioning. If we were to stay there again we would insist on a room facing outward. The price per night was quite expensive as breakfast was not included. To take breakfast in the hotel would make it just a little too dear per night. We were able to get a really nice breakfast just a short walk into town at less than half the price.
The service and staff was extremely good also had food in Kudos which we really enjoyed, The room we stayed in had no heat and it was a very cold night and when we contacted staff member they got us to move which was all done very quickly but it was very inconvenient at 10 pm ish.
A very pleasant, comfortable and quiet hotel.
Access to the gym and parking were both very convenient. Excellent location and friendly staff. The beds could have been a bit firmer.
modern amenities. great proximity to Cork City centre and shops, dining, etc. No fault of the hotel, but the construction out front is a bit of a pain.
Everything, by far the best hotel I have ever stayed in, from the building itself to the staff. Excellent. The management of the Clarion should be proud of the customer experience it's staff provides. I look forward to my next stay in the Clarion.
The staff were very helpful and the breakfast was first class The bed was very clean but not very comfortable
Very tastefully furnished. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast fist class. Value for money. Would stay again and recommend to friends. none
The staff was very helpful when my son got sick, the facilities were comfortable, and the breakfast room nice, with very nice selection of breakfast foods; a classy B&B. Since the heat is on a timer and turned off from 8:00am to 5:00pm, it got very cold for e few critical hours there, while my son was sick. Also I went up and down many flights stairs many times just to get the simplest things. We chose a place at our next stop (in Galway) with a more complete range of lodging services, like 24-hr room service and on-site restaurant and bar. Still, as B&B's go, very nicely done.
Staff very helpful and friendly.Breakfast 4*Great location for the city.Would highly recommend it for its value for money.
Staff were extremely friendly&helpful, very nice&clean in an excellent location. Would stay again, superb value for money Very steep carpark
Comfortable and clean rooms in a good location. Onsite parking.
Friendly people and comfort. Excellent breakfast.
comfort, location, cheap, parking, ensuite... ah, it said free wi-fi, but i didnt have a password wen i tried to connect....perhaps ye should write it in the rooms, coz it was too late to askin at d reception..
Pleasant staff The Gabriel House is not a hotel but a Bed & Breakfast so I felt it was false advertising.
The Staff of the hotel were very friendly which is what made this stay pleasant Firstly it is not a hotel it is a B&B. There is no hotel facilities, no bar, no lounge area etc. The rooms were tight with little space. I was travelling with my mother and our room was up four flights of stairs which is not convenient for an older lady. Also nobody offered to assist with our luggage. There is alot of renovations underway also which make the hotel grotty.
clean hotel, polite and friendly staff the room was to hot, window didn't open much!
The pool was nice and the hotel bar was fun. Location was perfect for walking to local attractions and restaurants.
all the saff were very friendly car parking very poor
in need of a update a bit scruffy
A convenient City center location, very good choice of cooked hot breakfast, helpful staff with good local knowledge of the city. Very limited parking at hotel.
the leisure centre. there was no proper parking. you had to park on the street and had to pay by the hour.
The staff was pleasant Limited hot water in shower. It was awful. Pillow cases were old and woke up with fluff stuck in our heads. Cold room. Door was broken. Television never worked. Will never stay there again for more than one night!!!
The swimming pool and design of the room
large comfy beds, quiet peaceful rooms, staff very helpful with parking lack of a mini bar, parking was limited
I liked the carpets and the cotton sheets and the breakfast black pudding. The person on the desk was helpful finding times of buses. The heating or plumbing system was very noisy, and there was very little sound insulation generally; people coming in late and closing the doors of their rooms would have woken me up had I not been kept awake by the strange sounds from the heating.
the staff were exeptional - very helpful and friendly
Location, staff and restaurant A couple of the bathroom fittings in room 110 were loose (handle on WC cistern, and seat)
The staff were very helpfull and the room was very comfortable. Nothing....
the room & facilities are excellent, better than most places iv stayed in which over the odds were payed. 65euro for 2 people - great value. stayed here b4 too and it was more so nice to see bit of value.don't have to check out til 12pm - amazing! it was all good
The reception area has a nice seating area to relax after eating or prior to retiering for the evening The access (lift) and stairwells are not the best and could do with modernisation.
man made waterfall by the restaurant made the stay even more relaxing
The smells of the kitchen and the noise of the cooker hoof/ airco where drifting in our room from 7.15h till 00.00h.
Location, bed was massive Charged for room cleaning and noise from street
The room is very comfortable and it is good location. Would recommend hotel. It is quite noisy in the mornings. The cleaning staff were slamming doors in the hallway so it was difficult to sleep.
The helpfulness of Hazel the receptionist
location,very close to city center noise coming from outside at night (pubs, noisy guests)
Breakfast was lovely and the staff were very friendly. The room was extremely clean and very comfortable No
All of the staff,Reception,Diningroom, and Night staff were pleasent and most helpful. The position of the room safe,floor level, in the room I stayed in on this visit.
location & value for money. no
location, wonderful breakfast lack of dining facilities during remainder of day
Modern decor, very clean, 5min walk into the city, nice breakfast, helpful staff, free parking, easy to find. Would definately stay there again! No bottled water in the room or any vending machines (that we could find!) to get a drink from which was worse as the rooms were roasting at night even with the window wide open and there were no dials to control the room temperature.
good location price to high for standards and facilities
Liked the location and the rooms were large, and nicely decorated. Shower is brilliant, really powerful. Its so hot, windows dont open more than about 2 inches and quite uncomfortable to be so warm especially when your getting ready after a shower.
Space of the room and king size bed , newly refurnished room , nice bathroom. Location quite near from main streets of Cork. Our room was on the street side , and thus quite noisy . Rooms on the other side are preferable I suppose.
When I asked for new pillow cases because mine had hair all over them, the counter help did bring me new ones and apologized. The breakfast was decent. It was dirty. And for the money a higher standard was expected.
The rooms were beautiful, clean, and spacious. We arrived early, got a room quickly, and even were upgraded to a suite just like that. The staff treated us like queens and kings, making us feel like part of their family. Everyone was cheerful and helpful during our stay, and the bartenders were eager to talk about local places to see and shop at. A highlight indeed for our Ireland trip.
Very comfortable king size bed, excellent food in Perrotts Restaurant (but wine a bit on the expensive side), lovely swimming pool, hotel in good location within walking distance of city centre. No tea / coffee making facility in bedroom would be our main complaint. Reception staff on arrival were friendly but while checking in, the girl answered two phone calls, and spoke to other guests around us making us feel a bit in the way.
Staff were excellent. Hotel is gorgeous and makes you feel special There was slight dirt in the room... around the bath grouting and on the wooden slatted blinds in the room (dust). For 5 star this should be up to standard! Other than that it was lovely.
Perfect staff who were interactive but not overly intrusive. Excellent food in an unstuffy atmosphere. Interesting layout of furnishings and nooks and crannies. The layout of the bedroom was at times impractical.ie dressing table with no mirror but a TV and hairdryer and the desk with mirror but cluttered with writing and information brochure. So nowhere to put toiletries.
amazing staff, nothing too big a problem, beautiful surroundings.
Facilities The hotel is hard to find. Even the GPS struggled to get us there. Old world atmosphere, with some unusual and welcome additions; a bottle of whisky at the reception desk to parch the thirst and ease the frustration of locating the place. Another fun touch, a putter and play practice green in the room. It is a nice place but would I stay there again? probably not. It's the little things that matter in a hotel and the dinning reception left us cold. We made dinner reservations and showed up on time, appropriately dressed, only to be kept waiting while others streamed by, were welcomed, and seated. Eventually,We were placed in a back room at what must have been the worst table in the place, center stage, traffic area in a room surrounded by cozy booths. The Food and service excellent, but the second rate treatment left a bad taste. So we move on, to a better experience somewhere else.
From start to finish it was very relaxing. The Staff were excellent we initially had a problem with our room the carpet was very gruby, we called reception and they immediately came up and moved us to another room. The food was excellent. Even though this hotel was rated 5 star i felt the rooms were 4 star standard
comfortable and relaxing and very pleasant somewhat pricey
Very welcoming, great value and city centre location, but a countryside feel in the beautiful gardens
Old world charm and very polite staff
the staff were so friendly and helpful-the food was very good-5 star all the way
Staff very helpful to ensure our stay was most enjoyable
Very beautiful hotel, especially for the price! Perfect location and friendly staff! Cannot go wrong! Nothing to complain about! Excellent!
How close it was to the city centre The price, and the fact I had to pay for breakfast!!
Friendly staff. Very good standard of room. Lack of food selection at 10.00 pm and 11.00 am
Rooms Noise outside and heat in rooms
Very comfortable beds! Friendly service The fact that you had to book to use the spa pool was not clearly pointed out upon check in, meaning we missed out on going. A mini bar would have been nice!
v central to cork city. lovely old style hotel
The hotel is in a great location and we were able to park nearby which is a plus for a city hotel without a car park The rooms are very small but it is an old hotel and there is very little you can do about that
the recognition of myself when I entered the hotel and said I had a reservation, my name was said by Geraldine, the receptionist. The concierge was also helpful when I was looking for a nearby building.
staff very good
Poor hot water supply
Comfortable Bed and location All OK
Immaculately clean old world hotel (Victorian building). Quiet rooms. Reasonably priced restaurant with gastro pub vibe. Elevators could do with some sprucing up and the jolt with which they stop on reaching your floor can easily raise an eyebrow. Food is only available at set times in the restaurant. I had a late start on Sunday morning and there was little available.
Wonderful, spacious and well-appointed rooms. The food was good and well-presented too.
Staff were excellent. Room service was very quick. Location was good and free parking was a bonus. The room was quite cold, although there was a plug in heater available.
quite relaxed experience room was cold with only one small radiator
The friendliness and general easy but efficient atitude of the whole place
The hot tub and steam room Draughty windows very cold room, 4 room lights need replacing, mildew in bathroom
Hotel had lots of original features (was established in 1874) and has kept a lot of its charm. Near to city centre so easily accessible. It was possibly a tad pricey, however guess it was a 4* hotel.
view of city! comfort and privacy. unfortunately did not get chance to try out spa. room service menu choice and quality was great
The hotel and the room in general were very nice
We had a very nice room assignment with view and balcony. We enjoyed the exercise room.
Lovely relaxed atmosphere. Nice location to Cork city Evening meal could be better. Room 102 is over the front entrance and on Saturday night people while smoking talk and laugh too loudly
Staff friendly, welcoming and polite. Room excellent with free Wifi etc. Interesting design to the public rooms - aircraft memorabilia. Food good and well presented. Good to have the option of freshly cooked omelettes at breakfast. Only downside was tables in the bar which doubled up as the restaurant for dinner. The modern design of the tables made it impossible to get my legs under the table in a normla way. It was necessary to sit with legs wide apart or "side saddle" - even more of a problem for a woman!
The German Architect funky entrance hall is very entertaining and relaxing Its only recently opened and maybe staff checking to see if all the bathroom fittings work properly would be a good idea
The staff were extremely helpful & polite.
The menu in the obar has been refreshed.better selection the breakfast still needs looking at
The cleanliness of the place, the bathroom sparkled the bedroom was exceptionally nice. No, it was perfect in every way.
No dining room for dinner in the evening
Comfy and well priced Massage chairs in cinema not working Food in restaurant not too great
We arrived late at night and departed very early for our flight out, but the staff and amenities were excellent -unfortunately our stay with you was too short to add more detail.
The staff were particularly friendly and competent. Clearly the hotel has just opened and this was very apparent in terms of ongoing work around the hotel.
This was an unexpected treat. The hotel has only been open for about a month. The staff went out of their way to accomodate our every need. I would highly recommend this hotel. Great value for money.
Everything - great hotel, helpful and friendly staff, good food and free courtesy coach to the airport terminal.
Very friendly staff and an excellent buffet breakfast. Very child friendly We stayed separated nights and therefore has two different rooms. The first room was a perfect size for a travel cot and we still had room to move! The second night we stayed on a different side of the hotel and the room was much smaller but still really nice.
Just relax,time out
Child friendly. Accomodating staff who moved us and our 2 year old to a room further away from the function room on request. Lovely pool. Spotlessly clean everywhere.
spa treatment was excellent and staff were friendly. Evening Meal was most enjoyable. Coffee facilities in room could be better.
Proximity to City. Motorway noise, hotel was shabby- mini bar was broken and the overall hotel was kind of flimsy - we could hear the toilet flushing in neighbouring rooms. Untypical of Radisson
The atmosphere and the bar. I could not get an appointement for the spa. I should have booked it before I came down.
The room was spacious and the swimming pool was a big hit. Breakfast is buffet style and not kept adequately stocked resulting in a big scrum everytime something was brought out. The room had no airconditioning but when you left the windows open for air, the noise from the nearby main road was incessant.
loved the continental duvets and the wonderful breakfast. reception staff was very helpfull. the room was quite warm but we could not open the window due to the noise of the nearby motorway.
The choice of breakfast was excellent. Never got to use of Spa as it was booked out. We were very disappointed that the location of the hotel was not specified. We wanted to visit places of interest but there were no information pamplet's to pick from. We asked a member of staff at reception, who gave us a map & marked some places. There was no information either how to get there or about the places. The entertainment was appalling. We will not be recommending your hotel to anyone.
Very relaxing, staff are very nice and extremley helpful at all times,
There was nothing that I liked about my stay there. The owner smokes heavily and consequently all of the rooms smell of smoke. The wifi does not work above the second floor. The location is not very close to anything a tourist is interested in seeing. Indeed, it had an industrial look to the neighborhood.
The ownner was very friendly and helpful. The house was impeccable... all furnishings are of a very high standard and everywhere was spotless. The breakfast was very good. It is in a very central locatiion. We felt that the room, though luxuriously furnished and decorated, was cramped, and definitely too small for 3 people. (It was classed as a super double). It contained a small double and a single bed. Luckily, there were only two of us and we were comfortable for our one night stay.
Very clean place and reasonably priced. Would love to come back again!
The hot shower was nice and the full Irish breakfast was yummy We checked in at 0930 got to our room but found that they put us in a differnt room than I had booked. Much smaller and the smoke smell was very strong. Also during through out the day hours a small dog kept barking which was annoying.
I think it is deceiving with a name like Blarney Stone and we thought it was 10 min walk away from Blarney Castle, not 20 mins drive. Should have stayed at the Blarney Castle Hotel in blarney not cork.
Took ages to get breakfast in morning if anyone was in ahead of you. our friends asked to be moved to room at front as their room was above kitchen and owners quarters and smell of cooking and cigarette smoke was quite strong
The B&B was very quaint, the breakfast was awesome & the owner was charming. the smell of cigg smoke was constant
Beautiful room in a tastefully decorated guesthouse. Service was excellent and staff were very friendly and helpful.
pleasantly decorated, nice atmosphere, very clean. Breakfast took ages to serve,3/4 hour, not good if you are in a hurry. Also about 15 min walk from any restaurants or bars. No lift, difficult as I was with an 78 year old and we were on the top floor, 4 flights up.
Staff very nice, busy hotel but all staff very helpful. Hotel is a long way out of Cork 4km (approx). There is nothing near it to be fair.
Cleaniless of hotel in general, comfortable beds, bottles of water provided was a nice touch as well as the biscuits with tea, spacious dining room for breakfast which I might add the food was excellent and last but not least my husband and myself requested to change rooms after our first night as the ventilation system outside was a bit on the loud side and there was no fuss made by the front desk staff who faciltated this move and relocated us to a much quieter room where we were most comfortable and would definitely stay at your hotel again.
reception staff very welcoming no
Staff were attentive and helpful. Breakfast plentiful, lounge areas were spacious and relaxing. Easy to access Cork city centre by car. Bathroom was adequate but a little tired and could have done with re freshing.
Good value for money for the quality of the hotel. The breakfast is expensive @Euro 12.50, the hotel is situated about 10 minutes outside Cork city so you need a taxi(11Euro) each way if you are going to the city for few drinks/night out.
Very friendly staff. Good car parking
Good allround. Friendly welcoming staff. Good design Liked reception area and the piano lounge and the bar/restaurant. Enjoyed meals in the down stairs restaurant also. We were happy and comfortable there. We would stay there again and recommend it to friends
The foyer, bar area and restaurant are all lovely. Rooms are dated and need of a facelift. Too expensive. The spa facilities are not in the hotel, they are up the top of a steep heel, which you need to drive to really.
the weather thats all. tv wasnt workin, not enough towels, not that great
the family room was sooooooooooooo comfortable and clean. even though we only stayed one night we noticed the staff to be so genuine and nice. this is the hotel for us for all our visits to cork from now on. to be honest i cant make any comments here as there is nothing to complain about.
I only stayed overnight but I found the staff very friendly and the room very comfortable.
Very Very Noisy
The breakfast menu was extensive and delicious. The staff were courteous and efficient. Great value for money; next time I'm in Cork I'll be back.
I liked the distinctive character of the old house. Breakfast was also excelent.
no bar or restaurant
Staff were very friendly and helpful. Also the breakfast was lovely. I was a little bit far from the city centre for shopping.
The bed. Breakfasr good too.
The size of the room, friendly staff
I liked the fact that the room was ours for the weekend. It gave the impression of being more like a hotel than just a bed and breakfast. The pillows were too flat.
The parking was easy and the price for the BnB was low relative to other options. The decor and amenities were in line with the price we paid. The location. You're a 45 min walk or 10 euro taxi to the central area. We were on the first floor so it was very noisy in the morning with everyone coming down for food.
Quiet and comfortable, nice touches such as soap and handcream in the bathroom. Access to garden through patio doors which was lovely. The breakfast was excellent and really set us up for the day! The staff are lovely. Reliable bus service to the town but the last bus back is 11-11.30 pm which is rather early. A taxi is about 10 euros. There are no pubs or restaurants nearby so a bar in the lodge would have made it perfect.
The place was as described. It was very clean and comfortable. It was fairly easy to find. The location was nice The innkeeper, John, needs a lesson in communication and kindness. He abruptly greeted us and proceeded to scold us immensely. We showed up at 10:30 in the evening. He went on and on about how we should have contacted him and that we were supposed to check in between 2-5. He told us how he waited all day and that we really inconvenienced him. It was so uncomfortable. I actually lost sleep over the matter. I felt so badly. It was ridiculous. Despite the fact that I apologized several times he never apologized for his bad behavior. It was so not acceptable. I never read anywhere that we had to check in at a certain time. I went back and looked that evening. It is a lodge and if 10:30 is too late to check in I think that perhaps he is in the wrong business.
Very comfortable, large room with french window exit to lovely garden.Excellent breakfast with ample choice. The map suggests hotel is 500m from railway station, it is in fact 5km and a taxi or (infrequent) bus ride from the centre, or 30 min walk.
The location of the hotel was my prime consideration. It was perfectly placed in relation to clients that I was visiting. Wi-fi reception was a bit hit and miss
Nice lobby and downstairs Bedrooms were very dated and needed renovation, unbearably hot, tv with very bad picture (old bulky tv) paint peeling off bathroom ceiling and nigh on impossible to get mixer tap for shower to give right temperature!
Easy to find.Good location across the river from bus station and main shopping street and bars. RC church close by. Walking distance from train station.On site leisure facilities/swimming. Bring your gym kit as well as swimming costume. Friendly staff everywhere. Pleasant room overlooking the river. Self serve breakfast in lovely dining room, adequate choice. Impressive spacious, welcoming & luxurious foyer with relaxed atmosphere. Fire doors in corridors noisy but understand their importance so not complaining.Prolonged smell of cigarette smoke in our room one night, penetrating from another room, I think, which I didn't like, but realised I hadn't specified non smoking room when checking in, not sure if it would have made a difference. One of the lifts was out of order.Didn't eat in bar as nothing on menu appealed to us and bar area not particularly inviting. Are you missing an opportunity?
Convenient to the City , Raaailwaay etc.
Close to City Parking was difficult
Not far from Shopping
Our room was great, and the price was great value also. Also room service was perfect, and the food very good, and great quality. Our room was very cold when we arrived. And we were told we couldn't have any heating until 9 o clock. which we found to be unbelieveable. We were offered a small heater, but with the bathroom to cold to enjoy a bath, before heading out, it was very disappointing, and also took the joy out of what you a hotel, which is some warmth and luxury..We had to put on extra clothes, forgoe our baths/showers, and make the best of it, but it wasn't comfortable until the next day, when the heating had been on for a while...Also we couldn't get the music system to work, and a porter checked it, and said maybe it was our Cd's? And said nothing could be done about it, as you had none to spare..which was also a bit dissapointing, as we had CDs of the band we were down from dublin to see at the marquee, and when we saw the player, were delighted as thought we could play the CDs beforehand, to find out we couldn't. Although later that evening, my husband cleaned the player, and we got it going, but leading up to going out, we were cold, and couldn't play the music...Also the bar and reception couyld be made more welcoming visually, it all looks a bit vast and cold....
great location for bus/train and city centre i suppose its just like most hotels nothing very personal
clean room,friendly staff cant complain
Girls at reception extremelly friendly Bar food, really really bad. Not even 2star standard. Left the ceaser salad it was so bad. Bar staff under hugh pressure
The room was too small for two people. It would be suited as a single room.
