    Overall, this is a great hotel. My husband and I were traveling for work, and this is in a nice location with respect to our office - about 10 minutes away. The staff is exceptionally nice and always greeted us with a smile.

    Clean, Exceptional staff, Amenities were sufficient for our needs.

    Construction during the Lounge renovation, but it didn't affect our stay at all.

    Elegant, modern but simple and unpretentious. Comfortable and unfussy with excellent amenities and professional and friendly staff.

    The views, the facilities in the room & the proximity to UCC.

    A room booked for three people should have three towels and enough shampoo

    I loved my stay so much that I hating checking out time, from the moment I checked in it was pure luxury. I found the staff extremely friendly and courteous, nothing was too much trouble for them. And I will be visiting again very soon.

    Except my lack of knowledge of the city and getting to the hotel there is nothing bad I can say about this hotel, it has become a firm favourite when I want a break.

    We were upgraded to a suit and it was amazing. We had fabulous views over looking the river and the size of the bedroom was huge! It would have been nice to have had a spa bath in the bathroom. Lovely soft robes, nespresso coffee machine. Great swimming pool and gym.

    I couldn't compliment this hotel any more, I was amazed at the standard of service and added to an incredible experience. Room was amazing with a fantastic view. Would definitely stay at the River Lee again if i'm back in Cork.

  • Couple

    No tv in hotel bar. All hotels are too expensive in Ireland and €120 on a Sunday night is not good value for money in any hotel.

    Location, free car park

    The breakfast is way too expensive, so we didnt take it. Found alternative solution, was more fun that way, and far cheaper. Wednesday the pool wasnt open, though we planned to have a swim before leaving:-(
