    The GPS did not identify location of hotel. We had to make a phone call to get directions witch were only approximate. Suggest address intersection of two streets.

    Couldn't fault the River Lee, hotel staff were very helpful from the moment we arrived, rooms were very clean and very spacious!food in the weir bar was really nice as was the breakfast!location ideal very central, great that car park is complimentary. Will def be staying here again on my next visit to Cork wouldn't even consider another hotel. Leisure facilities were great...would recommend booking the spa ahead of your arrival as unfortunately it was completely fully booked for the whole weekend of our stay!

    The hotel is absolutly first rate, one of the best we have stayed in, in this price bracket. Everything most people would expect from a modern city centre hotel. Good size rooms, which are well equipped and ours had a view out over the River Lee and surrounding area of Cork. The bathroom could not be faulted, with seperate shower and bath. The hotel staff and quality of food was excellent. Large, secure underground free car park for all residents. City centre is a five minute walk. We can't wait to go back

    Fabulous

    The staff and the food were very good. Friendly and professional with an emphasis on customer care we found them to be positive, genuinely nice and interested in their customer. The menu choices available were excellent. Lunch in the Bar was particularly good value and nicely presented altough breakfast the following morning was a bit chaotic.

    The wash hand basin in the room was blocked. The hotel was very very noisy. Hen parties were everywhere and the noise all night and in the early hours of the morning ruined what would have been a very positive River Lee experience. Maybe a suggestion would be to allocate one floor, ( to house the hens ) away from mature guests would be a possibile solution. We would not go back as a result...pity

    The room was clean and well kept. The staff were reasonably helpful.

    It is a 20 minute walk from the centre of town. A little far out -- a business hotel, I suppose.
