Family trip to Cork
Our stay was really good at the Metropole Hotel even though we stayed with a 14-month old baby. The staff was really friendly and helpful. The room was big enough and the bed comfortable. The hotel is in the city centre close to restaurants and pubs. I can only recommend it.

Nice central hotel, allow plenty of time for taxi!
Stayed because of central location and gym/pool. Hotel has old fashioned style décor, but all very clean and well decorated, new carpets etc. Helpful, friendly staff, good breakfast, single room actually a small double so adequate space for just me. Worst aspects were: rush hour traffic on the one way past the hotel means that taxis are hard to get and late if pre ordered; also the gym although seemingly well equipped had 2 defective bikes and 1 defective treadmill - this equipment seems to be pretty old and possibly worn out. There also only appears to be one elevator and the stairs from reception take a rather torturous route to the floors above!
