I found the staff friendly.Hotel small but comfortable.Room and bathroom to renovate. The hotel is close to bus and train station. By train you can visit one of Cork's main attractions: the Fota wildlife park . 😉

Worst hotel experience since arriving in Ireland , unfriendly staff who are rude and sarcastic , when informing the receptionist that there were 3 people parked in a four space parking bay and politely asking for assistance with this so we could park our vehicle we were told " at least we are not across the road at a funeral home and if our only worry is no parking ( which is part of the hotel package) then we should be grateful . Appalling service ! Would not recommend this hotel at all!!

On every visit have found staff very obliging, helpful,and willing to make a stay of at least 7 days very enjoyable with there attentiveness.Location is a gem of this hotel, as so near shops, restaurants, plenty of pubs,and theatre all within minutes walking.Decor is always being updated and bar open untill very late.What more can you want. Childen also welcomed.Breakfast always enjoyable especially irish. Good value allround for the facilities on offer,Service at all times i found very good,Parking is limited but at least it is Free,not like some hotels. Recommended for 10 years is surely recommendation enough: I will be back. jimtrikeman

Went for a getaway weekend with my husband and with my volleyball mates to compete.. good value for central. Would recommend to all.. limited parking space but some spaces on the streets. However only free parking on a sunday.

Just returned from a 4 night stay with my son and husband at the Ashley hotel. Check was quick and very friendly, helpful staff. The room is a little dated but clean. (What more do you want reviewers!) Bed was comfortable and had tea making facilities. Bathroom was clean and had soap dispensers over sink and shower. Clean towels every day. Shower was hot and well needed after a day of sight seeing and looking into our family ancestors. We had breakfast every day and had a variety of cereals, juices, fruit etc. A good cooked Irish breakfast (10 euros) and plenty of toast. This hotel is in a very central location and had two very good pubs over the road with traditional Irish music on tap. Landlady was very friendly and always had time to have a chat as was many of the staff. Yes they are in the process of improving the hotel and making changes but this takes time. If you want the mod cons this not the hotel for you but for us we thought it was perfect and we want to say thank you for a wonderful stay.

Not friendly, rooms very small, terrible smell, needs a revamp badly, 1970 bathroom and not enough water coming out of the shower to have one. Water pipes banging all night so no sleep got and when we complained she didn't need the hassle of ringing a plumber. Breakfast area looked very grubby so we decided not to have breakfast. We will never stay here again. Only good thing was location.

The hotel is a bit older but it's clean, really well located and quiet (our room was overlooking the street opposite sin e). The distribution of sockets is a bit weird and I wouldn't use the kettle in the room. But other than that there's a great little smoking area and security is on point. Would stay again for a night or two.

Omg was very dissatisfied on my visit didn't stay as room was so small couldn't swing a cat as for bathroom dated 1970s in need of major revamp smell of damp in room cleanliness Mark 2 very overpriced for the quality

Very clean and quite hotel. Staff were very pleasant and friendly. No problem staying here again, it's an excellent location. Rooms could be modernised but having said that the room was very comfortable too.

Overpriced "room" as the cost would have been more had we chosen to pay for breakfast aswell. Rooms are small and in desperate need of being modernised. Although there was a guy painting something whether it was the rooms or hallways this distinguished another smell that seemed to be lingering throughout. No room service until 4/430 which at that time we were getting ready to go out again, which meant this was not done. The location however is a short walk from the city itself. Carpark is a nightmare as they do not park in the actual spaces and only room for 5. Look elsewhere as I am sure you can get better for value.
