    Stay at Oriel !

    I've stayed in Oriel House on quiet a few occasions. Unfortunately, this time, while the staff are very nice, the y did their best ! The evening was cold outside so it would have been nice to see the fire lit inside. When we asked to have it lit at approximately 6.30pm it wasn't possible, because it wasn't working !!!! The Red wine we received at Dinner was freezing ! The Curtains in the Room were falling down ! While they're only small things individually, they just shouldn't happen. Otherwise, had good stay.

    The room was very dated and not clean. Lime scale build up in shower, stains on carpet and blankets. Head board torn up. Overall the pictures are not representative of room. I tried calling front desk twice on our arrival and no answer. Dining option was poor. Service terrible.

    Worst 4 star hotel I have ever stayed in. Filthy.

    Stayed for 3 nights for work purposes. Service at reception OK, but I have never seen poorer service in a bar or restaurant in my life! I was sitting for half an hour in the restaurant and wasn't even seen to for a menu, this was a quiet Wednesday night too. The room, I'm not joking when I say it was the most unhygienic place I've ever been. There were stains which resembled faeces smudged into the carpets, the furniture was dirty, the tables sticky, the roof in the bathroom had mould and the toilet flush broken. One handle off window broken. There was also very questionable stains on the walls, many of which are simply painted over in the wrong colour. Cleaners didn't empty bins for 3 days nor did they vacuum the room. I made the bed myself on my return each day. The glasses and complimentary tea/coffee were not replaced for the duration of the stay. Norwere any of the sanitary items such as soaps, shower gels or shampoos. Very disappointed in this 4 star hotel. Not what I was expecting for my trip to Cork. I have stayed in cheaper B&Bs which were cleaner. This 4 star hotel seems to only care about the wedding venue which is a pity. I don't recommend staying here to anyone.
