My husband and I had a very pleasant stay in the hotel. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious and clean. Breakfast was excellent and plenty of choice. Overall we felt it was excellent value and have recommended it to family members

I would just like to compliment the Commons Inn on the hospitality shown to my friend and I during our one night stay. Staff could not have been friendlier. We ate there for dinner and breakfast. lovely food, great value. The rooms were scrupulously clean. I look forward to my next opportunity to stay there.

No elevator. We got to carry our suitcases up a "short" flight of steps. I like no steps when it comes to carrying suitcases. Cracked sink in the bathroom. Hole on the wall. Mold on the peeling bathroom ceiling. Stained carpet. Noisy road right out of the window. We won't be back.

Many thanks for taking the time to review us. On first reading this review I thought you were writing about a different establishment!

Cork is a notoriously difficult place to park your car. So, what to do if you are visiting the city for leisure or business?. Stay at the Commons Inn on the N20 Limerick - Cork road. The hotel is roadside with excellent parking. It is well appointed with bar and restaurant which serves excellent food at reasonable prices. Friendly Staff...

We stayed here two nights with my husband and my mother in law. The rooms were spacious and clean although quite dark. There is a definite musty smell in the hallways but luckily doesn't come into the rooms. The breakfast in the morning was pretty good. The staff are very friendly and helpful. All in all it is a good...

We arrived late after the kitchen had closed. We had some drinks and Daniel, the bartender, brought us complementary food. That's just one example of the great service we received. The front desk was ready for us and had our keys ready for any easy check in. We would stay here again for sure.

I stayed here for two nights and it was a great place to stay in relation to the cost. Not a fancy place, but comfortable with great and friendly staff, great pub and food on the premises and rooms were comfortable. So close to blarney castle and the city, great place to stay as an introduction to cork city.
