    Great Meal
    Desk Clerk was not proactive at all --Maria -- hotel and location were great and had the best meat pie ever at Gastro Pub about a 10 minute walk away on the same side of river -- Gallagher's

    Poor 2.0
    Not 4* hotel
    Not in city centre as stated, not 4*, no pool. Over priced for location. Pool is a health club that closes at 7, must buy a hair cap, my teenager wasn't allowed in the tiny hot tub. Loud people kept us up all night, had to call front desk at 2:30 am to ask for quiet.

    Good location and value
    Good central location. Room was very spacious and comfortable. Had a glass of wine and cheese platter in the lounge, which was delicious! The lounge staff was super friendly. On the down side, the parking amenities.... be prepared for a walk, or tight street parking. Breakfast was included in the room, and while a really good selection of food, we both thought if they are going to go to the effort of this kind of breakfast, keep it fresh!

    Good location
    The room was so hot it was impossible to sleep. Very annoying to arrive at hotel and be told you have to pay an extra 14€ to park your car. Most hotels offer this free to guests. Room was clean and great location to walk into cork city.

    Dirty towel forgotten
    The bedroom overall was clean and comfy but I must say there’s was a dirty towel (probably forgotten from last cleaning) which wasn’t a big deal because I was a solo but still not acceptable.

    Superb hotel in the Real Republic!
    Second time staying at the Shandon Maldron Hotel, it’s really a hotel that keeps on giving! Mantas is excellent at his job, along with the doyenne that is Maria is the epitome of the hospitality sector in Ireland! Between Joe, Denis & Caitríona as management this hotel is a gem of Cork’s North Side! Hannie & Magda were superb during breakfast service, couldn’t find fault with their hospitality and I had the most wonderful and delicious tasting Eggs Benedict you could ever get in the hospitality sector! Well done head chef! Definitely sets you up for an amazing bank holiday weekend! Between staff in ClubVitae, the accommodation staff, Bell’s Bar, this is a winning hotel and the vista of the Shandon Bell is a winning tourist attraction for guests both at home and abroad! This is one hotel that keeps upping the ante!
