The River Lee, Cork Reviews - Write a Review

  • Brilliant hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Facilities are great and a very relaxed yet sophisticated atmosphere to the place. Food and drinks menus are excellent. Particularly loved the executive lounge that we had use of as we stayed in a deluxe room on the 5th floor. We enjoyed a fantastic honeymoon there and would love to visit again!

  • Great genuinely friendly staff. Nice location about a 10 minute walk from the city centre. Room big and spacious, bar offers great choice of food and drinks.

  • 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.

  • One of the best hotels to stay in Cork by far.First, the reception staff really make a sincere greeting to guests and go that extra mile to make you welcome. The staff at bar,restaurant and room support are charming and efficient they show that they love their job and anxiously have great support from management.Oh yes we'll be back.

  • 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.
