                  The views, the facilities in the room & the proximity to UCC.

                  A room booked for three people should have three towels and enough shampoo

                  The comfort, the spa/swimming pool. It is close to city center and cinema.

                  Lovely hotel. We received hot towels on arrival to wipe our hands.very central to the city about 5-8 mins walk.very special to us as we got engaged the weekend that we were there.would diffently visit this hotel again.

                  I loved my stay so much that I hating checking out time, from the moment I checked in it was pure luxury. I found the staff extremely friendly and courteous, nothing was too much trouble for them. And I will be visiting again very soon.

                  Except my lack of knowledge of the city and getting to the hotel there is nothing bad I can say about this hotel, it has become a firm favourite when I want a break.

                  8.8

                  It was 5 star luxury at a 4 star price. The staff were brilliant, always happy to help and had smiles on their faces. The food was lovely too.

                • Couple
                  10.0

                  We were upgraded to a suit and it was amazing. We had fabulous views over looking the river and the size of the bedroom was huge! It would have been nice to have had a spa bath in the bathroom. Lovely soft robes, nespresso coffee machine. Great swimming pool and gym.

                • Older travelers
                  9.2

                  Courtesy and helpfulness of staff, pleasant location, very comfortable and spotlessly clean rooms, superb breakfast, good swimming pool.

                • Couple
                  9.6

                  I couldn't compliment this hotel any more, I was amazed at the standard of service and added to an incredible experience. Room was amazing with a fantastic view. Would definitely stay at the River Lee again if i'm back in Cork.

                • Couple
                  7.8

                  No tv in hotel bar. All hotels are too expensive in Ireland and €120 on a Sunday night is not good value for money in any hotel.

                • Group of friends
                  9.2

                  General decor, pool, location

                  Staff wernt very friendly

                  Location, free car park

                  The breakfast is way too expensive, so we didnt take it. Found alternative solution, was more fun that way, and far cheaper. Wednesday the pool wasnt open, though we planned to have a swim before leaving:-(

                • Older travelers
                  5.8

                  Thought the spa was not very good, had to press flush 3 things to get it to work and break-fast over priced
