I booked my room because I was coming into Cork for a conference. I got there earlier than expected but they gave me the keys and let me check-in.
Pro's: The location was great, the rec center on the property was awesome with a really nice pool and an outdoor hot tub overlooking part of UCC campus.
Con's: Once I got in and found my room I realized I had no towel and could find none in the shared bathroom for the floor. There was also no toilet paper in sight in the bathroom - this happened several times during my 3 night stay.
It wasn't until that evening that I could get in touch with Gavin to get a towel. Then I discovered the shared shower had no hot water. I took a cold shower and opted to shower after swimming in the rec center for the rest of my stay.
Overall, It worked for what I needed but it was a lot more like a hostel than a B&B.
The room is loctated close to the University and it's a nice walk into the city centre. It was a pleasure to meet the students from different countries studying English there. The room was fine, no frills with a basic breakfast. Very reasonable price.
