Excellent amenities and friendly staff. Beautiful views of the river and city.

I loved everything about the hotel! The architecture, the interior design, the bar, the staff and the location! The only thing i did not care for was after a certian time no one was allowed in the hotel if your name is not on record. I booked 2 beds for a reason and my family was not allowed in. I did alot of research on this place before i booked. And i saw nothing in fine print about that policy. I had to pay an awful amount for just 3 more people.

Clean, friendly environment. Great location next to some shopping

The staff was very friendly, place is clean, good location

This was our "splurge" stay during our 3 weeks in Ireland.. And it totally lived up to it. The staff was outstanding and checked us in quite early. You can walk most places in downtown Cork in less than 10 minutes. Beds are really comfortable and the bathroom is quite large with a huge soaking tub. The views were awesome too! Plus they gave us water to go when we checked out. I'd stay here again!

Very clean and comfortable beds. Excellent view of river and city from room.

Great pool and jacuzzi, receptionist were very friendly and helpful, bed very confortable

The room was perfect for our needs and the staff was outstanding! The only thing that I noticed were the drapes in the room were a bit tattered; no big deal. I loved how the hotel was centrally located, in the city. We easily walked to most of our destinations.

Nice hotel outside City Centre. Front Desk staff is excellent! They went above and beyond to give us directions and recommendations! Bar and restaurant staff are just okay. Very hard to get a drink or food in the lounge. Rooms are spacious and bathrooms are very nice.

Great hotel, and great location. Staff was very accommodating.

The River Lee Hotel was very modern and had air conditioning, which we appreciated because the weather was warm and sunny during our visit. The room was clean and you could not hear any noise from the hallway. When we read other reviews it said you had to pay for parking, which is incorrect. Parking is free. The front desk gives you a ticket to leave and there is no charge.

This hotel is glorious and even if one is not staying there, do at least eat at the restaurant. Absolutely the most divine salmon I have ever tasted. Brilliant chef and they make a mean gin and tonic. Hotel staff and accommodations both top notch. One can sit outside in good weather and enjoy the food while sitting aside the river.. Thanks for everything. I’ll be back for sure.

Friendly and helpful staff, free parking in their garage a nice surprise. Easy to reserve on Orbitz

Clean, located nice distance to walk downtown. Came from the states and was allowed to check in hours before - since the flight landed in the morning and the check in time wasn’t until 2pm —very accommodating staff!
