The Kingsley is superb in every way, from the fantastic welcome at reception to the cleanliness of the rooms and the friendly staff. From the moment we arrived we were so impressed, the rooms are beautifully decorated and the extra features like the ipad in the room to order room service or extra tea/coffee was very useful. Any call to reception was answered to the best of the staffs availability. The pool both indoor and outdoor was run well with individual timeslots. There is also a nice walk surrounding the hotel and a coffee shop to the back of the hotel. The breakfast was well stocked and the menu was great. The dinner was delicious and the setting was nice and relaxed. The secure car parking was a massive plus. Cannot recommend the hotel enough, already planning our next stay!

Big shout out to all the staff at the Kingsley Hotel, in Cork for a super weekend. Everything was just right. Room was perfect, food was magnificent for all meals. ( Gold star for Irene who served us both nights!) Best breakfast in town! Pool and hydro pool were a real treat and very well managed! See you again soon!

Great food and location beside river was lovely. Great location if working in UCC or Munster Technological University. A bit far from city centre. However the walk is a very pleasant 30- 40 minutes. Good car parking at hotel.
