The property is wonderfully located by the River bank. It is a great location, very quiet. If you're a lone traveller, your room will be compact (a double bed in a smaller sized room). The room I had was a little tired and in need of a slight refresh. Other than that, the cleanliness was spot on, the staff went over and above for me and made me feel extremely welcome, so much so that I would definitely use this Hotel again if travelling to Cork. The Irish breakfast is absolutely amazing and well worth trying - excellent quality of food. A truly fantastic experience and a lovely historic Hotel with a warm Irish heart and soul.

The hotel is quite worn out and needs update. Worn carpet, rusty plumbing in bathroom, overall feeling of lack of investment.
