Good hotel but tiny room.
Hotel was of a good standard but the room was tiny. Bed was pushed into a corner, with very little space around it. Overpriced for a room of that size. They called it a 'cosy' room!

Friendliest hotel in Ireland!
Without a doubt one of the friendliest hotels we’ve ever stayed at. The staff are so sunny, warm and chatty that we felt like they really knew us well by the end of the stay. The hotel itself is really comfy and full of character too, with nice en suite bathrooms. It’s located in a great spot for exploring Cork, with the pleasure boat pontoon not far away for sailings towards Cobh. We were spoilt for choice when it came to eating out for breakfast, dinner or tea, but we did have brekkie in the hotel one day and it was lovely - great table service and a nice full Irish. Would recommend this place again and again - can’t wait to go back!

Hotel was good, staff great, shower didn’t work properly, room too hot so couldn’t sleep, a simple fan in each room during hot weather would make such a difference for a more comfortable stay.
