Will be wonderful when finished:

Posted 21-Jul-2017
Pros: Location was excellent.
Location: Downtown was just a hop skip and a jump away!
Hotel was under major renovation. We walked in and there was no front desk, just a folding table with no one there. There was no notification from the hotel regarding the renovations. Lobby was an obstacle course and there was a make shift bar breakfast lounge in a conference room. Would have been nice if we were notified or if there was $ off the stay. Bathroom was stained and gross!

Nice Hotel with an Easy Walk to City Center

Posted 08-May-2017
Pros: Proximity to city center, cleanliness of hotel, good breakfasts
Cons: The breakfast music was club music and not appropriate for a quiet breakfast.
Location: very good restaurants. The Hop On/off tour. Cliffs of Moher tour, Kylemoor Abbey gardens
We enjoyed our stay at the Harbour Hotel in Cork. The room was comfortable and well-maintained. The breakfasts were very nice. The hotel was being renovated while we were there but we were never inconvenienced. We were able to walk to restaurants and activities in the town center which is important to us because we do not rent a car when traveling abroad. The staff was knowledgeable about tours we wanted to take and the bus company picks up customers outside the hotel. We also walked to the bus station to get one of our tours because the station is a short walk from the Harbour Hotel.

Nice Hotel

Posted 06-May-2017
Room was good and spacious - I expected with paying more to have a higher room and better view but it was a nice room. Don't get the breakfast - wait staff can't keep up - no glasses, plates or bowls, not good selection of food for the price

Great Stay

Posted 02-May-2017 on Hotels
I could not recommend the harbour hotel enough! We were slightly hesitant on reading the reviews of the hotel, but they did not do the hotel justice. The service was amazing, from start to end. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The breakfast was incredible, with a great selection of different breakfasts. The hotel itself is beautiful, with a modern, relaxing atmosphere that reflects the beauty of the harbour just outside of the hotel. The hotel is in a great location, just two minutes away from Shop street, yet it is far enough from the city centre that at night, no loud noises from bars/pubs can be heard. The one thing that did slightly annoy me was the bathroom of our hotel room. It was not cleaned properly whatsoever. I had to clean it myself! Overall, I did enjoy my stay in the Harbour hotel and I will definitely come back.

Great location and comfortable room. They were renovating the lobby area which was somewhat disruptive but we were informed of this when we checked in.

Nice location, close to restaurants

Posted 29-Apr-2017
Pros: Location was great, walkable to shops and restaurants. Very nice hotel.
Location: Food at the Front door was good
After a long flight and drive, we had a pleasant welcome with an early check in and friendly staff. Hotel was undergoing renovations but wasn't disruptive at all. Comfy rooms, good breakfast and friendly people. Parking was tight but that is what we have experienced everywhere in Ireland.

ok but not great

Posted 27-Apr-2017 on Hotels
We arrived while there was a remodel taking place in the lobby and hotel exterior. Parking is nearby but not free. 10 minute walk to the main area if town....not too far but if rainy or windy it is miserable walk. Hotel is located remote from the main city area in an area near some industrial buildings...not much to look at except for the cemetery across the road

Excellent location. Friendly helpful staff. The breakfast was varied and plentiful. Staff were also very attentive. Rooms were clean bed was comfortable and the shower was very good and powerful. A bit of work was being done so it was a bit chaotic in the morning but that can't be helped. The only problem was heat control...the room got too warm and their was no control point. What is it with Irish hotels and air condition in rooms? Anyway it is well worth a stay at this hotel.
