The gentleman at the counter was very friendly and helpful. The hotel looked fresh and our room was quite modern looking. We enjoyed the access to the pool/sauna/jacuzzi. It was just a short walk to the centre of town. The breakfast was quite good though a little pricey. The beds were not very comfortable. The wifi was spotty at best.

Just back from a stay at this hotel, we stayed for 2 nights. The hotel is fab! The rooms were very comfortable with all the extras... robes, turn down service at night etc. We ate in the restaurant food was lovely and reasonably priced. Location is great and the staff are very friendly and helpful! I would highly recommend it.

City centre hotel but with a nice airy atrium and pleasant cafe and bar facilities. Everything was great for my stay but only after I moved rooms. I would have marked the hotel excellent for it's price but my first room faced the atrium and I thought it was a bit oppressive without natural sunlight. They also play music during...

Stayed at the Clarion recently while attending a concert in the Marquee in Cork. Reception staff were friendly and welcoming. Rooms were bright and clean. Food in the bar was excellent. Complimentary bus service to the Marquee was a great bonus. Highly recommend this city centre hotel. Have already booked for our Xmas family trip to the panto.
