What can I say, well plenty so let's get started, and before I continue I expect the managers reply to be " At first I thought you were talking about a different hotel" nope I'm talking about the Commons Express and yes I've seen the positive comments but I've seen your clientele too. So touche. We arrived at the hotel...

My wife and I recently stayed here on our honeymoon in Ireland. The staff was incredibly accommodating and friendly. The room although a bit dated was clean and nice and it was a quick easy 10 minute drive to cork city center. While staying a gentleman claimed to have lost his key and provided our number to the front desk....

Great staff! Sadly they are let down by those that make the operational decisions... if it weren't for the wonderful and attentive staff, the review would only have earned 2 stars! In the end we had to change rooms due to the shower not having hot water and being told the maintenance man had fixed it three times - but...

Stopped here for a quick snack this afternoon. The staff were really helpful and friendly. Particularly the gardener who help us to un-snag the wheel of my Dad's wheelchair - a lifesaver! Thanks so much.

My wife stayed here for 3 nights. The whole experience was really good from the room, the food and the attention from the staff. The food portions were huge and well presented. The room she had was enormous. The high point was the care and attention received from the staff, it was exemplary. The only negative point is that the...

Stayed one night in his hotel, while the decor was drab the room was clean but there was a lot of traffic noise, couldn't open windows due the noise. My biggest problem was with the bar, there is no cash back facility, I had to leave the hotel to find an a.t.m. machine to get cash. I was attending a...
