We had booked and paid for two rooms, but when we arrived they said only one room was booked and paid for. Once I showed them the paper work that we had they put one of us into a room where the bed was unmade and can only be described as a store room with bits and pieces of furniture. We then went down and complained and refused to accept this room we were eventually found a decent room. We had been traveling since 4am and didn't get into our rooms until 5pm..

Room was a little dated and decor especially in bathroom . Maintenance could be improved ... no hot/cold indicators on basin sink .... drain missing also . During our first night there was no hot water and no electric shower facilities... however staff done there best to source a plumber and have heating facilities back up and running . We were also given a voucher of a two course meal for two adults complimentary . So can’t complain . Would like to see room updated a bit though . Staff were excellent ... friendly , helpful and lovely to deal with . Food was beautiful too

Pros: Convenient location
Cons: Only two of the sockets in the room were working also no lift and had to carry a heavy suitcase up two flights of stairs
Basic but clean hotel on outskirts of Cork..reasonable rates...
