8/10 Very good

Cork City
Enjoyable stay. Limited Parking is an issue . If none available on site , it’s difficult to find a spot especially if you are new to the city and the various one way traffic systems, which adds stress. There is a large paid parking site close by, but you are left to take the gamble on getting a space at the hotel, then look at other options . Maybe a booking system in advance for the limited spaces , which would let me people know in advance which parking option they need to take.

Not worth the money
The hotel is a little dated and the room had a really strong musky smell of damp coming from the bathroom, the TV hardly worked in the room with only a couple of channels working and overall the hotel is indeed a refresh.

Great value stay
Our room was excellent. It was very clean and contained all that we required. The bed was extremely comfortable. The breakfast was a pleasure but we would like to see the restaurant open for evening dining as not everyone like to dine in a bar setting. The food prices were also very reasonable and the hotel is well worth a return visit

Lovely majestic stay
Loved this hotel - was expecting something bog standard but instead - this beautiful property with the high ceilings, city view and great location. Great hospitality from the reception - got great suggestions on dining in the city. Free parking and an amazing majestic stay

4 stars? Really?
I'd say 3 star is probably more accurate! The location is ok for Cork city centre, just about 5 to 10 minutes walk but there's very limited parking on site. The room smelt of old bathroooms and the condition wasn't great. Staff were lacklustre and I probably would not choose to stay here next time, sorry!
