No water

It is a beautiful hotel in a great location. However on the day of check out there was no water in our room to shower, wash our teeth or use the toilet before we checked out. We didn't ring front desk straight away as thought it might get going again. When we did ring we were told that there was no water in the whole hotel as there was a problem out by the road. I really felt we should have been made aware of this. It was very unsatisfactory and really spoiled our stay. Nothing was mentioned on check out, no apology, nothing. I felt bad for staff as I understand it was out of their control but water is a very basic requirement. I felt that we should have been made aware of the issue. It felt as though it was being brushed under the carpet and I just don't feel that is satisfactory when we paid full price and didn't receive a full service. Any acknowledgement or recognition of the inconvenience on check out would have been appreciated but this was not the case.

4 day short break. brilliant.

Very friendly and helpful staff, (especially charlie, who served us in the bar )booked at fairly short notice, and got a good deal .A very efficiently run hotel.would recommend this to couples and families alike. Iess than 10 minutes walk into cork city. Very good bar snacks and the evening meal in the restaurant excellent. The only criticism, as our breakfast was not included, we decided to try a breakfast at €18,but decided not to when we saw what was available and not to our liking.we walked across the road and had an excellent one for half the price. The price.

Good location

Room airconditioning ineffective - cooler to open window. Hotel has large expanses of glass with no ventilation - makes it very hot. Chairs in bar area not very comfortable. Hard beds - we put quilts under sheet to soften bed , needed 2 quilts to make comfortable.

Family meeting in Cork

The River Lee hotel is run in a very professional manner. Checking in could not have been easier. The hotel is superbly located with a large car park which is critical in Cork with its bizarre public parking. I would always choose this hotel over other similar hotels in Cork. Well run with excellent staff.

Hard to find but worth the effort

You need to rely on Google or equivalent to find this one through the one way systems of Cork. However we had a very good stay. Parking was on site and secure. Staff very friendly and obliging, and the room very good also. As the weather was warm we were able to have drinks and dinner on an out door terrace which was very pleasant after a long drive.
