I was very impressed by the outside of this hotel, very nice old style red bricked hotel. Once inside the old style continued. Staff in reception were very friendly and helpful and directed us to our room in a very efficient manor. Our room(the only down side) was situated in the new part of the hotel and was quite a walk, up a flight of stairs then walk to the end of the corridor in the old part of the hotel up another flight of stairs and another bit of a walk to our room at the end of the corridor. They do have lifts in the hotel but are really really slow. It was a nice and very clean room, with plenty of room. We went out in Cork that evening and decided after speaking to a manager on duty to walk into the city it took us about 20 mins to get to our restaurant. It was a nice walk and we felt perfectly safe. After our night out we returned to the hotel, the front door was locked, we were left in by a very friendly bar man who encouraged us to the bar for a night cap. We had a lovely chat with him.
Breakfast the next morning was excellent, we could choose what we wanted from the menu for the hot breakfast and it was freshly made, with some cereals, bread, fruit, cold meats and juices as a buffet for us aswell. All in all we enjoyed our stay here and we would probably return although we will probably ask for a room in the front of the hotel the next time.
