We stayed in a very nice large twin room that had both a shower and tub in the bathroom. They provided large towels and wash clothes. Partially overlooked the river. Good location from which we could walk easily to downtown, the college and St. Fin Barre's Cathedral. Breakfast was excellent with a wide variety of foods including things not seen...

Spent 4 days and 3 nights here. Wish it was longer. The staff is so professional and very varied. A privately held property of the Doyle Group with several hotels in Europe. They are so good without being snooty. Any question is answered immediately and coteously. The quality rooms, and amenities made this a very enjoyable trip to Cork.

nothing negative about this hotel located on the river within walking distance of town. Free parking Underground is a big plus. Because of expensive breakfast we went out to the nice restaurant, Serendipity, just across the river. The evening food in the hotel bar was good and competitively priced
