5 out of 5

Best Hotel Staff.

Pros: great staff, nice bar, close to everything. Bus stop all but at the front door.
Location: Bus stop very close and it is an easy walk to many of the attractions in town.
Best staff in a hotel I've seen. I had left something valuable there and the manager went way out of his way to get it to my next stop the next day. Never had that happen to me before. Hope his boss gives him a big reward. If you are going to Cork, stay there.
