Family Visit - Hidden Gem

Absolutely amazing hotel. I wasn’t expecting much... was thinking will be a good base to travel places in cork. But this hotel is outstanding. Lovely big family rooms, tea coffee. Little note for the kids. Food was fabulous, games room and cinema room but what really stuck out was their staff... Every single one of the staff members couldn’t do enough. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
