    We stayed for two nights. The room was spacious and very clean. The staff were polite and courteous. We encountered one incident, when contacting reception via phone in our room it was not answered for long intervals. This happened on both days. Other than that we were very satisfied with our stay in the Hotel.

    Food good bit pricey mind. Geared up for covid but wear visors not masks offers no protection to customers. Rooms are nice and bed comfortable. Setting a bit undesireable on road side.

    Lovely Cork

    Superb hotel. Definitely a 4 star location. Restaurant and resident lounge overlooks River Lee. Fantastic view for having a meal or a pint of Guinness. Staff were excellent too and nice touches given to us as it was our wedding anniversary.

    Good stay

    The Kinglsey is always good, but their measures for the virus are great. Very reassuring.

    Walking distance to many sights. Unfortunately we were unable to experience other features of the hotel as a result of COVID-19. Food was delicious, but small portions for the price paid for room service.

    Wonderful staff and hotel, room could be better

    Wonderful staff and very professional. The room was nice but a little bit shabby in places. Small holes in the wall from where something had been removed (possibly the rack to hold the iron) and the area between the bathroom and the bedroom just felt like it could do with a spruce up. However this was my only issue and I will certainly stay again.

    As I am a regular customer, I feel that this is the best hotel in Cork and I have tried many others. It is ideally located next to the river with a running track and next to a park. It has an indoor and heated outdoor pool and a fantastic gym. I am concerned to rate it too highly, as the next time I want to book it, it might be sold out ....
