Cork is amazing!
Enjoyed the beautiful view and great service. Fantastic breakfast and superb cheese board with lovely local selection of cheeses. Very happy with having stayed at the Kingsley!

A truly great stay.
This was a lovely, luxurious hotel. The breakfast was yummy, with lots of options. The bathroom was sumptuous and the room was spacious. Our bed was very comfy and our pillows perfect. It was slightly too far to walk into town (we were on a tight schedule) but that meant it was quiet and peaceful. There is a lovely river walk at the back of the hotel too.

A top hotel
Wonderful hotel with many amenities & great breakfast spread. An unexpected benefit was the outdoor hydro pool which provided an excellent outlook over the river while warming us on chilly mornings. Also a very well-equpped gym. Staff were all most cheerful & knowledgeable. While a little out of central Cork, the bus stop is very close and probably a better way of getting into town than driving and trying to find parking anyway.

Be very careful with this hotel. We had prepaid our accomodation and after leaving discovered that as well as accepting payment for food and beverages, close to €180, they also put a hold on our cash card for the exact same amount. Left us having our card rejected for accomodation at next stop. Denied it but card company assures us they did. Has cost us extra money and stress. Stayed in Ireland for 30 days, no other hotel has done this to us. Leaving Ireland tomorrow and when we finally get our money back will get a much lower exchange rate. The bar food was overpriced for what it was. Standard fare at inflated prices.

Poor acoustics. Over priced. Good location
Hallway noise. Room doors tend to slam. No balcony. Poor inter room acoustics. Goid location. Rooms are very over priced.
