Location of hotel is great for walking around Cork and staff are very nice. However, we didn't like being asked to pay in full on check in. This hotel is just somewhere to sleep and have breakfast. Rooms and beds are comfortable and really clean but it is bland. No bar area / no water in room / view of car park. We were looking for a holiday --type hotel and was my fault for basing stay on reviews here. Breakfast was done very well in terms of Covid and staff are really nice. A review here says breakfast best they ever had - it is standard - plain and minimal. There are cafes and fab bakery nearby with proper coffee etc.

10/10 the best lodge I have EVER stayed in! The staff are so friendly and accommodating. The breakfast is amazing and has that home cooked feel. The rooms are immaculate, so clean and spacious which is exactly what you need for a busy weekend. And it is so stylish and modern. For the price it is a Steal. It has such beautiful views of the lovely Lee and so close to the city too. I’m not a huge walker and being so close to the city is so handy while still being quite! Would definitely recommend and will be 10000% be staying here again!!!!!
