The comfort of the room, the best of facilities. Really enjoyed my overnight stay.
The pool and closeness to city centre Music in hotel bar was too loud to sit in. 3 out of 5 ladies toilets had no toilet paper at 10pm, response from staff on reception was rude
Great facilities ie, fitness center, swimming pool. On arrival we were also upgraded to the deluxe suite with access to executive lounge which was a lovely suprise! Room was really comfortable and quiet also. Good location. Some of the hotel staff (in particular the at the reception & bar) were unfriendly and not very bothered. One receptionist for example seemed put out by me using another family members credit card for booking an extra night (even though I had already booked used it for 2 previous nights and it states that this is fine to do on the website)..."do you not have your own card?" one female receptionist cheekily asked after I explained it was my sisters card. Quite obviously I didn't!! She further questioned me about this in an accusatory manner. It came across as very rude and unprofessional. This is a very small thing but some hair conditioner would have been lovely in bathroom too! Hotel food was over-priced for what you got also...
Spa treatment was super; back and Indian head massage. The relaxation room after my massage is not really designed for relaxation. It's an open room looking onto the corridor where treatment rooms are located, I stayed but 5 minutes.
Loved the location and view. I enjoyed the seating on each floor. Gave us a chance to sit and visit while enjoying the gorgeous view of the river. Would love a quick cafe for coffee in the morning when we didn't want a full breakfast.
the pool and gym The fact that the pool did not open until 9am and that there was a mix up with my rate that caused some embarassment at breakfast. when I booked online I included breakfast however the hotel had no record of this when I went for breakfast on the sat. I was also overcharged when the online booking co took payment from my visa card in advance
facilities in the hotel found the breakfast expensive especially as it was cold. Alot of money if you didn't want to eat much
The location is excellent. It is warm and comfortable. Spotlessly clean I left some items behind and when I phoned the hotel I was told they were not found. Disappointed about that
i thought that it was not very fair that we could not use the leisure centre after 12 md on our deoarture date even ehen we were very willing to pay.
Rooms warm ,comfortable ,breakfast excellent. Having to use card key in elevator ,card key not working when trying to get into room.However Staff were prompt and excellent when we were designated another room.
Free internet access, good car park, good location
Liked the location and the rooms were large, and nicely decorated. Shower is brilliant, really powerful. Its so hot, windows dont open more than about 2 inches and quite uncomfortable to be so warm especially when your getting ready after a shower.
location, wonderful breakfast lack of dining facilities during remainder of day
All of the staff,Reception,Diningroom, and Night staff were pleasent and most helpful. The position of the room safe,floor level, in the room I stayed in on this visit.
location,very close to city center noise coming from outside at night (pubs, noisy guests)
When I asked for new pillow cases because mine had hair all over them, the counter help did bring me new ones and apologized. The breakfast was decent. It was dirty. And for the money a higher standard was expected.
Modern decor, very clean, 5min walk into the city, nice breakfast, helpful staff, free parking, easy to find. Would definately stay there again! No bottled water in the room or any vending machines (that we could find!) to get a drink from which was worse as the rooms were roasting at night even with the window wide open and there were no dials to control the room temperature.
good location price to high for standards and facilities
Breakfast was lovely and the staff were very friendly. The room was extremely clean and very comfortable No
Space of the room and king size bed , newly refurnished room , nice bathroom. Location quite near from main streets of Cork. Our room was on the street side , and thus quite noisy . Rooms on the other side are preferable I suppose.
location & value for money. no
Very comfortable king size bed, excellent food in Perrotts Restaurant (but wine a bit on the expensive side), lovely swimming pool, hotel in good location within walking distance of city centre. No tea / coffee making facility in bedroom would be our main complaint. Reception staff on arrival were friendly but while checking in, the girl answered two phone calls, and spoke to other guests around us making us feel a bit in the way.
Staff very helpful to ensure our stay was most enjoyable
Old world charm and very polite staff
Very welcoming, great value and city centre location, but a countryside feel in the beautiful gardens
comfortable and relaxing and very pleasant somewhat pricey
From start to finish it was very relaxing. The Staff were excellent we initially had a problem with our room the carpet was very gruby, we called reception and they immediately came up and moved us to another room. The food was excellent. Even though this hotel was rated 5 star i felt the rooms were 4 star standard
Facilities The hotel is hard to find. Even the GPS struggled to get us there. Old world atmosphere, with some unusual and welcome additions; a bottle of whisky at the reception desk to parch the thirst and ease the frustration of locating the place. Another fun touch, a putter and play practice green in the room. It is a nice place but would I stay there again? probably not. It's the little things that matter in a hotel and the dinning reception left us cold. We made dinner reservations and showed up on time, appropriately dressed, only to be kept waiting while others streamed by, were welcomed, and seated. Eventually,We were placed in a back room at what must have been the worst table in the place, center stage, traffic area in a room surrounded by cozy booths. The Food and service excellent, but the second rate treatment left a bad taste. So we move on, to a better experience somewhere else.
amazing staff, nothing too big a problem, beautiful surroundings.
Staff were excellent. Hotel is gorgeous and makes you feel special There was slight dirt in the room... around the bath grouting and on the wooden slatted blinds in the room (dust). For 5 star this should be up to standard! Other than that it was lovely.
The rooms were beautiful, clean, and spacious. We arrived early, got a room quickly, and even were upgraded to a suite just like that. The staff treated us like queens and kings, making us feel like part of their family. Everyone was cheerful and helpful during our stay, and the bartenders were eager to talk about local places to see and shop at. A highlight indeed for our Ireland trip.
the staff were so friendly and helpful-the food was very good-5 star all the way
Perfect staff who were interactive but not overly intrusive. Excellent food in an unstuffy atmosphere. Interesting layout of furnishings and nooks and crannies. The layout of the bedroom was at times impractical.ie dressing table with no mirror but a TV and hairdryer and the desk with mirror but cluttered with writing and information brochure. So nowhere to put toiletries.
pleasantly decorated, nice atmosphere, very clean. Breakfast took ages to serve,3/4 hour, not good if you are in a hurry. Also about 15 min walk from any restaurants or bars. No lift, difficult as I was with an 78 year old and we were on the top floor, 4 flights up.
I think it is deceiving with a name like Blarney Stone and we thought it was 10 min walk away from Blarney Castle, not 20 mins drive. Should have stayed at the Blarney Castle Hotel in blarney not cork.
The B&B was very quaint, the breakfast was awesome & the owner was charming. the smell of cigg smoke was constant
The ownner was very friendly and helpful. The house was impeccable... all furnishings are of a very high standard and everywhere was spotless. The breakfast was very good. It is in a very central locatiion. We felt that the room, though luxuriously furnished and decorated, was cramped, and definitely too small for 3 people. (It was classed as a super double). It contained a small double and a single bed. Luckily, there were only two of us and we were comfortable for our one night stay.
The hot shower was nice and the full Irish breakfast was yummy We checked in at 0930 got to our room but found that they put us in a differnt room than I had booked. Much smaller and the smoke smell was very strong. Also during through out the day hours a small dog kept barking which was annoying.
Beautiful room in a tastefully decorated guesthouse. Service was excellent and staff were very friendly and helpful.
Took ages to get breakfast in morning if anyone was in ahead of you. our friends asked to be moved to room at front as their room was above kitchen and owners quarters and smell of cooking and cigarette smoke was quite strong
There was nothing that I liked about my stay there. The owner smokes heavily and consequently all of the rooms smell of smoke. The wifi does not work above the second floor. The location is not very close to anything a tourist is interested in seeing. Indeed, it had an industrial look to the neighborhood.
Wonderful experience. The ownership was welcoming and very helpful. Our dinning experience for Breakfast was truly "Irish". It was overall a delightful experience. Will go back if I have the chance. Nothing I did not like.
We particularly liked our very warm welcome. The breakfasts are magnificent. On our last day, after we had checked out, they gave us a lovely afternoon tea as it was a horrible afternoon. We found that everyone ate breakfast at the same time, so it was hard to find a table. The food was so good that everyone stayed a long time at breakfast.
brilliant breakfast, and great afternoon tea
Breakfast is excellent. Staff are always friendly and helpful.
Best guest house i have ever stayed in
The service was unbelievable - from the moment you step into the B&B you are made to feel so welcome. The rooms are beyond comfortable and include lots of little touches such as heaters in the bathrooms and pillow-top mattresses on the bed. As soon as you arrive, you are given fresh, home-made scones, danishes, and fresh tea and coffee. Wonderful service from a wonderful B&B!
great breakfasts small room
Friendlinessof staff Nothing
Wonderful ... the host was very welcoming, rooms cosy and food superb. Attention to detail with afternoon tea a nice touch. Would definitely stay again.
Breakfast - excellent
The staff at the hotel were friendly and professional. The one outstanding factor was the food the breakfast although a little slow in being served it was delicious, piping hot and fresh.
The breakfast was good. When I arrived, the owner claimed he did not receive the fax advising of my reservation for a double room. He first sent me to a twin room which had little space. After complaining, he moved me to a room with two twin beds and said he would push them together. He did not do that. Overall I was unimpressed with the accommodations.
The Audley House has charm, a helpful and very personable hotelier, and an excellent location, between the university and a park, along a major thoroughfare into the city. We liked everything.
Staff were very friendly, room and en-suite very clean and comfortable.
The service was excellent, the bed was great, and there was always someone ready to answer any question. I actually liked everything. I recommend Audley House.
Central pleasant location, old-style building , some old stucco and decorations throughout the building. Nervous owner, jittery Faulty Towers style. No socket near kettle. Sloping floor.
The staff were very helpful and kind. The guesthouse is located in a silent and easy corner of the town yet at a walking distance. The room was small and spotlights were shining in through the night. The shape of the guesthouse may be inconvenient for old people.
Relaxed atmosphere. Quiet at night.
Good clean basic room, plenty hot water for shower. None really, apart from I did not like the .horrible colour walls in the room
Rose lodge was very conveniently situated just 5 minuites walk from downtown cork although the bed and breakfast is on a main road the windows are double glazed so traffic is hardly heard
Very fashionably decorated room. Staff was very friendly and charming. Nothing. Location is about 10 minutes walk but on nice area.
Very good Location...friendly staff...good for 1 overnight Modest bedroom size and toilet...nothing spectacular
quite and comfortable
Friendly staff, good clean rooms and good Irish breakfast. Rate was very reasonable and location good for walking into town.
Friendly hostess and location.
Courteous Staff and good breakfast The tv only seemed to have like 3 channels which were repeated over and over, but I wasn't there for tv anyway, so it was alright.
Clean, efficent staff, comfie bed. Excellent breakfast Room was next to the street
the very very comfortable wecolmeing house.the staff couldnt have been more friendly. they were all very helpful accommodating and pleasant.nothing was any trouble to them.
Was very clean, had a jacuzzi bath. Close to town, Only 20 mins to Main St. Free parking. Couldn't turn off heating.
Our hostess and host were friendly and helpful. They keep the place very fresh and clean. It is in a safe location near enough to the city center to walk.
It was bright and clean. Breakfast was very good.
Very homely, nice house with very nice hosts. Rooms are clean and pleasant. Breakfast is very good and reasonably priced.
Wonderful family-run B&B which deserves the nicest of compliments, had a great stay all too short, and would definitely recommend. Una is a sweetheart too.
Good location to city centre, friendly service basic and clean facilities. Room was cold as heating not on all the time plumbing noisy ie when shower/taps turned on!
The staff were exceptionally friendly No
Clean and nice, good breakfast and nice rooms!
The welcome was lovely; free upgrade offered. Redclyffe provided a very tasty and well cooked breakfast. Complements to the chef.
The staff were very welcoming and friendly.The room was very comfortable.The location was excellent especially if you intend to visit U.C.C or the city centre.The price was also very reasonable.
Sheer convenience to town excellent value for money,staff very friendly and helpful
ideal location to city centre, walking distance to nightlife,parking available. Very friendly staff and a good irish breakfast. I will be staying at the Redclyffe again in the near future.
Lovely and warm. Breakfast was really nice and staff were very friendly
Great Location, Lovely Clean House, Beautiful breakfasts that filled you up for the day, great staff, will definitely be back.
Unpretentious b & B. Nice welcome from a nice family. Pleasant breakfast, spacious room albeit sparse. No tiles by the wash hand basin in toilet. Tired decor with some lose fittings, particularly the electrics.
Tiny, good location
Can't think of any. Grimy, tatty, dirty ... could think of more, but you get the idea.
Loved this one, very cute and clean. Excellent facilities and staff were awesome.
the girl working there was extremely nice and very pleasant Although the b&b is very central is much more expensive that b&bs in the area that might also include breakfast for the same price.
The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Very close to city centre.
Helena the owner welcomed us into our home. her hospitality was wonderful and not only was the house very comfortable, she went out of her way to make sure were comfortable and happy. Will recommend!! Nothing at all
Lovely, very clean hotel in a good location. Would most certainly stay here again.
sub standard accomadition and way over priced, poor value for money
Enjoyed your stay in the self catering room which was situated at another premises. Helena made us feel at home.
Excellent location (about a 10 minute walk to the cIty centre, opposite the front of University College Cork gates) and very friendly, helpful staff. Recommended.
very welcoming lady whom Imet first.wonderful breakfast
Coffe and tea making facilities and the privacy I think that the price of breakfast was too expensive and so I went elsewhere, I think if the breakfast was included in the room I would be ore inclined to stay on my next trip.
Cheap and close enough to the city centre. Room was a little dated but for the price it was adequate. Bathroom was very small - WC with a tiny shower.
Excellent. Tidy and friendly staff.
The man working the front desk was great. We were surprised that we were not actually staying in the Killarney Guest House. The owner of the guest house owns the 3 buildings next to each other. We had rooms in 2 of the buildings.
The homemade pudding served with a cup of tea for welcoming was excellent!
unexpected upgrade to apartment, breakfast selction
The check out time was too early
Room was large and clean and in a great location for what we needed. Only slept at hotel - did not use any of the facilities.
There was an odour in the room that I stayed in which gave the impression of poor hygiene, however surfaces and textiles did appear to be well cleaned..
The bathroom could do with being treated for mould removal as it was all over the ceiling.
The rooms were well appointed and of good quality. The breakfast was superior. The staff were friendly. Room on the front suffered slightly from street noise at night even with the windows closed. Not a huge problem just noticeable.
Outstanding friendly service and welcomes with a cup of tea, even though I arrived very early. Located directly across from the main University campus.
The guest house is within easy reach of the city centre and UCC is just across the road. The rooms we're clean and comfortable. I only wish I was there long enough to try out the Jacuzzi. A more general comment than anything else, but all hotels and guest houses in Cork are seriously over-priced. If you want people to stay, reduce your rates. This was one of the cheaper options and although breakfast was included, I unfortunately didn't get to taste that either... maybe I'm just lazy, but they could try to extend the breakfast time beyond 9:30am.
Thank you for pleasant stay. Love the large bed even though I am a single traveller.I have no problem with free wi-fi here - thanks.
The staff were very friendly.It's very close to the city centre. I was in room no.12 which is next to the reception.It was very noisy in the morning .
nice and comfy
Enjoyed my stay. I travel to Cork on business and look forward to going back. Lovely room. Very clean. Great pancakes at breakfast!
Room was clean and distance from city centre was within walking distance. Ample parking at rear of house. Breakfast time is too early with weekend breakfast finished by 9 o clock.
Lots of space for parking. No complimentary wifi, shower was so powerful it would not stay mounted on the wall and it sprayed all over the floor. Temperature of shower was lukewarm to cold and kept fluctuating.
