Very Good8.0
Beautiful hotel with modernized character. Limited parking available in their compact parking lot, but the front desk staff was very helpful. Disappointed in the staff for replacing our towels every night despite the signs boasting their efforts to conserve water when guests choose to reuse their towels. Easily accessible in a quiet neighborhood.

For a hotel at this price point I expected something nicer, and less run-down feeling.

Would come back.
Great hotel and front desk service. Very comfortable and spacious rooms. Walk into town and back provides terrific aerobic exercise! Train to Cobh and bus to Blarney were added conveniences vs. driving.
