The Metropole Hotel, Cork, Ireland
Good6.0
Recent stay at the Metropole
In keeping with its rating. Below average service at bar and restaurant; left waiting for extended time after ordering drinks, not a busy period, no apology or explanation offered. Restaurant under new management; very ordinary standard of food. Nearby affiliated carpark a nightmare to use.

Good6.0
Excellent value
The hotel looked glamorous, was excellent value and the staff really helpful but even though we are talking about Ireland and the temperature was typical for May, the room was so stiflingly hot that even with the windows open, sleep proved to be too difficult for much of the night.
