I recently visited this beautifully charming hotel with friends and had an amazing stay. I got chatting with numerous staff all extremely professional and polite. Danielle was a delight, and Cian the barman had vast knowledge of the local area and even made me a surprise cocktail which was delicious!! Cannot stress how pleasant all the staff at this hotel are! will absolutely recommend it.

The best part for the other half was the beamish at the hotel which to him was the best ever which he told our lovely bar tender David so on that note we have no problem in telling others to have a break there Bernadette and Frid from Dublin

We stayed in the imperial last night - good value package, great location, lovely hotel (nice lobby/bar/coffee shop with olde-world charm). Rooms were nice too (if carpets in some of the stairs to rooms a little tired). It was shaping up for a very pleasant stay until dinner in the Pembroke - maybe the "A" shift were not working at 8:30pm on a Sunday, but Dinner was well below average - and definitely well short of 4-star standard. Caesar salad looked clumsily put together and patchy - plenty of... Read more

Back in Cork for a family holiday.. Very comfortable stay and reasonable enough for a city centre hotel. The hotel staff very very friendly and helpful. The room was quite warm as it was warm outside. They gave us a fan for the room and checked up on us later to see if we were ok..a nice touch.

Just back from a four day stay and there is very little to fault with this Hotel. We were treated very well from start to finish, all staff were friendly to deal with. Rooms were clean and well decorated. Breakfast could be better quality but dining room, Bar and Lobby loos etc. very clean. Parking is a 5 minute walk away but easy to get to. All in all a very enjoyable stay

My grandmother and I, visiting Ireland for my 18th birthday, had a somewhat atypical experience at the Imperial Hotel. It, like many other reviews will tell you, has a wonderfully central location, pleasant rooms, and excellent restaurants. My grandmother and I, however, have tested the Imperial Hotel's civility perhaps more than any other client. On our second day there, my grandmother tripped on the sidewalk and broke several teeth and her jaw, in two places. Wonderful thing about the Impe... Read more

Dear Manager I am writing with regard to my recent stay at the Imperial Hotel, Cork. My smashing old Nanny Flo used to use a term ‚??Fur coat and no knickers‚?? which sadly springs to mind when I think of my stay at your hotel. Gorgeous to look at but nothing underneath. I checked in for a 9 night stay between 23rd May to 1st June and was on a business trip. Firstly, I was not helped up to my room with my large suitcase which I kind of would expect with a hotel of this stature and a dedicated... Read more

This review is regarding the Escape spa at the Imperial Hotel only as I was not staying at the hotel itself. Myself and my Mother booked in to the escape spa for a treat after I had my baby. This involved her taking a day off and me getting a babysitter. I was booked for an Indian head massage which was a 60 minute treatment costing ‚?¨90. The treatment started with a foot cleansing ritual and then I was asked to get on the treatment couch. The therapist left the room for me to do this for what ... Read more

Stayed here for 3 nights in May. It was a bit confusing of where to park when checking in. Once checked in, you are given a map to the Car Park...not close by. I must have been in one of the older rooms as the curtains had rips, there were burns on the carpet and the bathtub faucet was unsecured. There was no thermostat in the room but there was a fan in a cupboard to use. The room was very clean, the bed was comfortable. There are quite a few hallways and stairs to navigate to get to the room. ... Read more

From the 1900 with history, however some of the interior could use some modernization. Overall a nice place to stay in the city center close to the very nice Old English Market. Spacious rooms, nice service, good food and you feel like taken back into the Victoria times.

Stayed here for two nights as part of a luxury tour group. This is an old hotel, and the rooms are spacious and the beds comfortable, so no issues there. What was an issue, was the mold all around the tub in the bathroom. Clearly noticeable and most unappealing, it immediately made for this establishment not living up to kits four star rating. The first night, we had a fair meal with friendly service, but the second night was an absolute disaster. Staff running around like chickens with their ... Read more

We stayed in this hotel as it was the first one we found when we arrived in Cork. It was a little pricey for our range but we took the plunge. The room was lovely, on the second floor, but we had a noisy night as we had to leave the windows open. The street noise was very loud and went on all night. However on checking out I was asked how the night was. the manager went out of his way to ensure I was happy and ended up refunding a large part of my room rate as he wanted us to be happy. I wa...

3 Friends and myself stayed here in June on an overnight stay for a concert. It was a luxurious experience. The room, hotel facilities, food and staff were second to none. The location was brilliant too. The car park took a bit of negotiating and manoeuvring. If you are going to stay here my advise would be to pull up in the loading bay of the hotel drop your luggage and ask for the car park swipe and directions. Ideally a member of staff should do this but depending on how busy the hotel is it ... Read more

I organised my friend's Baby Shower and we decided on Afternoon Tea in the Hotel. From the minute we booked, the staff were outstanding, Kevin, the Manager reserved a beautiful area upstairs for the Party where we enjoyed a glass of Prosecco each and unlimited Tea's and Coffee's. The food itself was really tasty and it was extremely good value. It was the perfect setting for our party as it was cut off from the rest of the Bar but beautifully presented. I would highly recommend!

I booked for a hen party and the staff could not have been more helpful. Perfect central location. Rooms mid range, clean with comfortable beds. Breakfasts are excellent and reasonably priced. The price for 3 nights made via booking.com was a bargain and they carried out my request to have all 5 rooms on the same floor.

At first glance the hotel seemed four star with a classical, opulent entrance and lovely staff. Set down on a busy Saturday afternoon on a very busy one way thoroughfare was a disaster however, and the offsite car park is a good stretch of the legs (ten minutes walk). The hotel is central however and in the heart of the shops, bars and restaurants of Cork City. The room we were in was standard, good size but a bit tired. Chipped tile in the centre of the bathroom floor, not fun to stub a toe ... Read more

It's like stepping back in time, the marble facade, the coffee shop and bar all give you a feel of the 1950s. The hotel is exceptionally maintained and well run. The location is central, within walking distance of all local attractions. The staff are always attentive without being overbearing. If you are staying in Cork there really is no better place to stay.

If a classy joint with great bar food is what you need in a busy Cork city centre location, then the bar food in The imperial Hotel will do just very nicely. Lucky enough to get a great window seat on one of the duck egg blue gull-winged chairs, we got a 'bird's eye' view of city life as it did its thing on the busy street outside. But inside is a sea of tranquility run by friendly, accomodating staff . And if its a snack or full lunch, both can be provided but on this occasion the tapas was ord... Read more

Overall our experience at this hotel was very pleasant owing to the great and personal service given from the reception where Charley was immensely cordial and patient as well as welcoming. The restaurant staff were well presented and polite knowing when to interject so you could relax and enjoy your meal. We are fussy about our steaks and as such this was very tasty and tender. I would recommend staying at this hotel as it's the people working in it brings the experience that special touch.

Wonderful staff. Seriously the hotel manager needs to thank his staff. The lobby/ restaurant is so very beautiful and location great.

They are in the process of updating the rooms which will be a great addition when they are completed. We look forward to returning.

On waking up at 3am in the morning, i was absolutely roasting! There seemed to be no air conditioning in the room, and the window only opened a little bit. I did not have a pleasant nights sleep with this issue. This was very unfortunate as this hotel is very high quality and everything was of a high standard.
