  • Staff were wonderful during our stay and offered lots of recommendations for day trips and places to eat. The only drawback to our stay was the "view" from our room - we pretty much looked into a white wall. Not a big deal since we were out most of the day but a bit disappointing as a first impression. We also got 2 beds, one double and 1 single - a bit strange as we were travelling as a couple, we just left the small bed unused. It was really nice to have a Nespresso machine in our room, with a good selection of coffees. The location is super central, a 10 min walk to city centre and 20min drive to Blarney Castle.

  • Excellent service and location. The river view from the bar is the main attraction for this hotel. We stayed in Room 338, and there were a few issues. First, the shower had a bit of mold and rust. Second, the carpet in the room was coming up at the transition. Lastly, the lights were out in the entire hallway wing where our room was located. Overall, an okay stay but it was not worth the price.

  • Excellent hotel with great service and friendly people. Very comfortable and well equipped room. Great views in all directions. I would definitely come back!

  • Went here for evening dinner. The service was excellent with really friendly and professional staff. The food was divine - they have great vegetarian and fish options. The bar on the river has a lovely atmosphere

  • AWESOME- The staff was excellent providing a great idea (Gilda) for a day-trip and the accommodations were top of the line. Location provided easy opportunities for experiencing the downtown atmosphere. Parking garage a pleasant bonus.
