A really lovely and spotlessly clean hotel set in gorgeous grounds just a short walk from the centre of Cork and both the bus & train stations. The staff were all wonderful and I'm so grateful for their kindness in helping me get checked in early when I arrived on Sunday. Fantastic breakfasts too. An absolute gem of a hotel.

6/10 Good

There are no elevators, really treacherous and inadequate parking, no fans, and windows that do not open enough to provide air flow. The reception is behind full glass like a convenience store in a really bad part of town. Also, this was the smallest room of our entire stay with no place to set out a large suitcase. The walk to restaurants was down a very steep hill, and we kept hearing drunk screaming as we were walking to and from dinner. The breakfast is only by appointment, so we missed it trying to get packed in the morning , as they gave us an appt that was at the exact time as check out without warning us. The cleaning staff was however wonderful and helped us look for a lost item. They were the one bright spot in an other mediocre stay.

Kathleen was an absolute gem from start to finish! She was extremely helpful and even let me take her parking space in the lot. She was warm and kind and even made us laugh when we were a bit frazzled. She was our first introduction to Ireland too, and a fine representation of this beautiful country!

Excellent all around
This was by far the best place we stayed on our trip. The staff were all so welcoming and happy to help with any questions or concerns. They have a garden and chickens and ducks to provide fresh ingredients for their breakfasts. We loved every breakfast option we tried!! It was in walking distance of plenty of restaurants and in the evenings we sat outback with some coffee. Definitely a perfect spot to stay.

Chickens and 1 of the ducks
Breakfast, they also had delicious hot breakfasts
