    If ever in Cork walk the hill to Gabriel house. Just a straight shot from the bus station. Kathleen is an absolute pleasure! She makes you feel like you never left home. She even folded my clothes! They go over and beyond and make your stay an absolute enjoyment. Beautiful building and great landscaping in the courtyard. And a super awesome breakfast. Its also near the train station. Stairs halfway down Summerhill will take you straight to it. I cannot express the hospitality we received! Thank you Kathleen for everything!

    The staff were so friendly and the location is perfect, so close to the buses, trains and the city centre. A really warm and friendly place and the breakfast was really yummy.

    Kindness of staff

    To reach the hotel needs to be done about 500 meters uphill. There is also a bus that stops right outside, but the first time, if you do not know, it's uncomfortable with the luggage.

    Staff very friendly & helpful. Breakfast service & food good. Location handy to transport. Takeaway food service delivery available. Discount at local restaurant.

    Lack of tea & coffee facilities in room. Towels small & thin. No face washers. Tv too small. No guest lounge area. Renovations appeared not to be professionally done - home handyman quality. Eg, bathroom door lock didn't close, gap under door. These detracted from the appearance.

    The comfort of the room, the service from the staff, the excellent breakfasts and the garden surroundings and car parking facilities.

    great friendly service on arrival. was offered an upgrade with a fantastic view of the town. the room was very large and comfortable

    there was no lift to take up to the fourth floor. we would have like a traditional breakfast in Ireland. and was served a full English which was ok. there was only a shower room which contained a 800x800 shower, toilet pan and a wash basin with little or no room to move in. and no hair dryer in the room. this hotel is not ideal for a person in a wheelchair.

    Professionalism of staff. Friendly atmosphere, nothing too much trouble for the staff. Nicely appointed rooms. Good breakfast with many choices.

    The only comment I would make is that we could only get one TV channel, RTE 1. This is not a criticism, but it could be remedied perhaps.

    Very nice staff, great first imprerssion. The facilities were good, bathroom was really nice. Breakfast was lovely and parking good. Location could of been a bit better, a 10 - 15 minute walk to the centre and u have quite a steep hillb to walk up to get back. All in all a lovely stay and woiuld recommend. Thanks

    The staff were very friendly and helpful. The guest house was within walking distance from the city centre and so very convenient.

    The bathroom was tiny and we had no hot water in the shower.
