Great National Commons Inn Hotel, Cork, Ireland
Very Good8.0
The property is pleasant but a bit far from the city. The rooms were large and bright but the beds (doubles) are a bit narrow (queen size would be more comfortable) and probably due for a renewal. The breakfast is good value with a good selection.

Great value for money.
This hotel is great value for money, comfortable and plenty of space in the room. It is not in the centre of town but is quite close so a taxi ride is best to go anywhere unless you know there is parking.

Standards falling
I have been to this hotel many times over 20 years. The rooms need updating, but the worst thing is the breakfast was always good, and now it is terrible, this is why we returned so many times.

Cork Weekend whilst travelling.
Lovely hotel out a wee bit from the centre of Cork but easily accessible by car. Meals were very good although a bit pricey for the non alcoholic larger. Entertainment by Tommy McCarthy and Donal Ring was excellent. If staying over the weekend and particularly a Sunday clients should be aware of the restricted bus service and also shops and car parks do not open till 12 noon. Street parking is free on a Sunday but finding somewhere is difficult as everyone has the same idea. However, an ideal place to stay for the 2 nights we were there.

Good stay nice room. A bit noisy but that was due to the clients staying there and a delivery at 4am, car alarm going off 3am. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Loved the double act at breakfast very friendly and sang brightened the day thank you Paul and Ann.
