We were only there a few nights. But they had a lot of hotel guests. Downstairs they had a pool and a gym. They had a full service bar and restaurant that had pretty good food and drinks. The only bad thing was the rooms do get cold. They do offer a radiator heater in the rooms, the only problem...

My wife & 2 young sons arrived on a Sunday afternoon to have some bar food. The bar was not too busy and we sat down next to the fireplace. We waited but nobody came near us at all. I got up and saw a bunch of menus on a counter so I got them for us. We again waited...

This hotel was awful. First thing I noticed about the room was how cold it was. I turned on the heat as I went to the leisure centre. When I got back the room was still freezing. I rang reception, she said she'd fix it. Half an hour later still no change so I rang again. This time she sent...

Even though there was a wedding in the hotel on both nights during our stay, they didn't impede on service we received or enjoyment...

This hotel was horrible from the moment I rang to book. The receptionist I spoke to didn't want to know about any requests I had so I asked her to put me on the phone to the accommodation manager who proceeded to hang up on me. When I arrived the room wasn't ready so I was offered tea and scones...

Room was very shabby with stains on the floor. Bad smell in the room & room was very cold even with heating on. There was a leak over the shower and the floor towels etc got soaked just before we left. Breakfast only average, won't be staying here again.

We stayed in the Oriel on Friday of the October bank holiday which was of course Cork jazz fest. Booked the Oriel directly on their website. Easy to use, quick and simple. Emailed the wonderful Katie in reservations. I received a very prompt reply and she was so very helpful and friendly and really couldn't have done any more for...

One night mid week stay. Staff pleasant & friendly. Big bedroom & ensuite. Large foyer. Pool & gym. Good beer & bar food. Fish fresh ( chips hard & burnt). Great full Irish breakfast. Better than many cork city centre hotels. Good value at €110.
