When we arrived at the Lodge everything seemed fine at reception. We were greeted and given a key to our room. Our room was The Jacuzzi suite; the bath was extremely small, in fact the smallest Jacuzzi I've ever seen and I'm comparing it to a house sized one which would be much bigger, a person on their own would...

was facilitated with an early booking and the staff was lovely. The room was lovely quiet in back of the lodge ~ the curtains blocked out the night lights very well. It was not too far from the shops so could walk easily back and forth

The room was comfortable and staff very helpful. Changed our room on the second night because of some noise in the lift shaft and even offered to upgrade. Great bars and cafes nearby. Nice to have parking in a city centre hotel

Beautiful hotel just a short walk from downtown Cork. Very close to the cathedral and numerous pubs and shops. Breakfast was included with our room, and it was simple but tasty. We would stay again in a heartbeat!

Stayed for a lads weekend. Room was nice but paid £238.0 for two nights without breakfast. There is no bar or leisure facilities. The River Lea hotel next door has much more facilities and a piano bar and is half the price.

We stayed for 3 nights during the Jazz Festival. Staff very very welcoming & helpful, the rooms were great & breakfast was fantastic. It's less than a 10 minute walk to the Opera House in the City centre. We'll definitely stay again when going down.

Stayed here with my girlfriend to visit a friend in Cork. We pay €130 for a night here and we were massively ripped off. It was a very basic room with no frills. I would recommend you stay elsewhere as this is a B&B style lodging charging 4 star hotel prices.

We arrived very late on Friday because of flight delay. No trouble to the night porter. Room 211 at the back of the hotel was quiet. Serviced every day. Ice available on request.
