Olde Worlde Charm and Grace

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 15, 2011

The Imperial is a hotel that has just about everything - a location on Cork's premier business street, a stone's throw from city centre shopping, excellent accomodation, a good restaurant, and a wonderful Aveda Spa.

Making the most of its street frontage, the main bar has an outside seating area where fashionable locals and guests alike mingle in the Cork air.

On entering the main foyer we found ourselves in a glamorous Belle Epoque style property. Crystal chandeliers hang from, the high ceilings, balconies look down on the marbled lobby, and stunning plaster mouldings adorn the walls.

The receptionist greeted us with a truly welcoming smile and we were quicly checked in to our second floor room. Decorated in a style that brings one back to a bygone era, rooms are warm, comfortable, and inviting. There were two beds - a queen size and a large single. Beautifully dressed in fine white linen with a crimson throw, I sank into the comfort. Chinese style enamelled lamps provided soft lighting. A flat screen tv, wardrobe, desk, armchair and occasional tables ensured comfort. There were tea and coffee facilities and an iron.

I had to be up at six the first morning and ordered room service tea and toast. It arrived on the dot of six am and not only had they provided tea asnd toast but the Irish linen decorated tray also contained freshly baked scones, croissants, and orange juice.

Our all inclusive package included dinner in the hotel's Pembroke restaurant on one night and that was of a very high standard. I will write a seperate review.

Unique Quality: We didn't use the spa on this occasion but I have heard it is indeed excellent.

This hotel is outstanding for its service and warm Irish welcome. Everywhere we went it was clear that the staff were there to ensure our stay was as perfect as they could make it.

I highly recommend this hotel.

Directions: On Cork's main business Street in the City centre.
