We stayed here mid week. Disappointing that the hotel couldn't offer rooms when there were rooms available on an array of apps. Layout of the room isn't great. Bed was lovely and comfy. Loads of pillows and towels. Room was very clean. Furniture is getting jaded. Stayed in room 323. Breakfast area is dated as is the tiling around the pool. Could do with a refurb. Jacuzzi wasn't hot enough. The access to the hotel is confusing. I parked up where most of the cars were, turns out this was for the fitness centre. Next stop was the conference center! Nicest part of the hotel in the lobby. Check in was very good. All in all, it's not quite a 4 star. The hotel needs some updating. Room cost €109 for a Tuesday night.

Stayed here for one night with significant other. Few things to note. For starters we struggled to find the reception. Parked outside leisure area only to find we had to walk another few hundred meters. Signs needed. The reception area was lovely, with friendly enough welcome. Nothing to boast. Corridors to room narrow and dated. Dated , too, was the breakfast area. In serious need of refurb. Middle aged cook serving the Irish breakfast had an awful scowl on his face !! Should not be allowed in public. Bar in suttons was nice with good selection of beers on draft. Friendly bar staff. Pool area was only OK. While pool was good size, hot tub was not hot enough. Room layout was poor. But all amenities there with decent shower and comfortable bed. Overall, difficult to navigate and in need of a refurb all around. Lobby is nice, but it's about the full package !

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The staff was super friendly and helpful. They even took the time to make sure we could easily find our way to our next hotel in Dublin. The location was great. Just a short walk to several restaurants. The rooms were clean and all sorts of outlets (including ones for US electronics) were available in the room. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed in Rochestown Park Hotel for 2 nights while I was in Cork on business. I can't recommend highly enough how comfortable the room was and the exceptional level of cleanliness. The bar was also quite nice and the food was top class. Only a short walk into Douglas village. I will certainly be paying a return trip in the near future.

Located closer to Douglas than Cork, it is close to the ring road and easily accessible when travelling from Dublin. It’s a sizeable hotel with good leisure centre, sauna, steam room, jacuzzi, pool and gym. Our room was very spacious as was the ensuite bathroom. Our stay was only for two nights but breakfast, although busy, was very efficient with a good selection of continental and cooked food available. The hotel is very spacious and has a nice bar to the front of the hotel. Douglas is only a 10 minute walk where there are a number of good restaurants. A good base for touring.

We stayed here for 3 nights 11th -14th april.We got married on the 8th april and wanted to get away for a few days too relax.on arriving the girl on reception was lovely. And we went to our room it was lovely with a modering bathroom and lovely lighting in the room. Only down fall was the window there was an awful draft coming from the window we asked to move rooms as it was freezing. The 2nd room we got was a room that had a locked door into the room next door with kids running scraming and shouting from the crack of dawn till 9pm at night and we could hear everything. The waiting staff are also lovely in the restutant . Menu is a bit expensive for some1 juat wanting a light snack. Definally wouldnt rate the hotel 4* been in 3* hotels with better rooms than this.

Superb! We had adjoining rooms which is a godsend! The staff could not have been more helpful or friendly! Especially a waitress who served us at dinner and again in morning! She was joyful and a pleasure to have met. We unfortunately didn't get her name. The facilities are perfect for our family and the kids loved the pool! Will definitely book again!

We stayed here after travelling in from England and I can say the staff were great from start to finish. The two girls on reception were very helpful. Kelly and here friend (sorry didn't get her name) helped us to print our boarding passes off which wasn't too much trouble for them. The food was great and the rooms were well presented with comfortable. The restaurant was very busy at night so I would book early and the breakfast should not be missed. Thanks again to all the staff.

Location: Lovely part of Cork city just up the road from Douglas Court shopping centre. Relatively quiet despite being close to the N4 dual carriageway. No shortage of car parking spaces and only a few miles to the city centre. Facility: Top class leisure centre and gym - pools is fab & modern. Fine spacious hotel and reception area with a bit of GPS work required to get to reception. Small but useful kids play room. As it was a one night stay, not sure about other details. Seemed to have ample conference rooms and facilities with plenty of club meetings taking place in various parts of the hotel Breakfast: Good selection of hot and cold food served carvery style, but a little odd that tea / coffee was "make your own" in a 4 start hotel... still there were good machines in place to do just that and if you fancy an expresso, Café Latte or Cappuccino, etc., all was good. Downsides, but only slight! - "Climate control" is a bit all over the place with cold corridors, great central heating, separate air con, and even a heater in our room.. - No Ironing board, but yes we had an Iron - Safe not working (well locked in the open position... only one night stay so not worth reporting this) - 4 of us in a room, but only two of everything type setup.. ( like cups, etc...except the towels) - Wanted to eat in the bistro or restaurant but nobody warned or advised that a booking was necessary on check-in, which would have been nice.. and when we arrived down that evening... chaos.. and not a chance without a 30-60min delay minimum... (room service was available though with a wait) - Warning signs about breakfast rush would indicate that they are not ready for a crowd and the breakfast room is a little bit to small for the size of the hotel - no problem for us, we just went down early. But there did seem to be a hint of under- staffing for a venue of its size. - Walls are paper thin between rooms and though no fault of the hotel, we had a screaming toddler exercising his lungs between 12-1am... 6-7am and 9.30-10am... Careful of what time of year you book and ask for a quieter wing (Angry was an understatement) Staff: - All staff we met were very pleasant, helpful and made a good effort and some did look a little bit under pressure ( it was Easter holidays) Would love to give this place a 4 out of 5 and indeed could easily stretch to a full 5 stars, but just enough of little annoying things to make you hesitate, especially if you are a regular business traveler on a break with the family. That being said, its a very nice bigger alternative to many of the city centre, bigger named hotels. Certainly consider as an alternative.

Stayed here several times before. Fist time after the update and refurbishment. Perfect stay - friendly staff - great rooms - great restaurant/bar - great breakfast - close to shops Already looking forward to the next time
