Positive Reviews

So ... ‘this' is how students live!

The accommodation is excellent and comes at a budget price. The apartment is clean, spacious and knocks socks off many alternative options that are available in the commercial sector. The kitchen is spotless and includes virtually everything you need. The shower unit is small, but that's OK; no problem.

A 'corking' location.

It's easy to park up - free - and there's a great children's playground nearby. A short walk takes you to the buzzing city centre, shops, restaurants and bars. The main road location means easy access to buses, taxis and supermarkets - including the neighbouring Tesco's.

A better 'reception' than at some hotels!

The welcome you get here is very warm and genuine. If you are new to the city of Cork, members of staff will supply all the information you need on interesting and best value places to visit. The first people you meet are the reception people and they couldn't create a better first impression.

Negative Reviews

Pay as you stay

It must be geared to students reeling back in the early hours (*surely not!) but if you are doing the same routine, you may have to pay to get in. Seriously! The make a charge.

Security blips.

Security procedures obviously need some reappraisal when strangers, unannounced, enter your room. They need to sort this.

A low ‘degree' of cleaning.

In this university setting, everything is OK at first glance. Later, though, you'll probably note stains on doors and kitchen units. These indicate poor cleaning procedures, lots of high and low marks … but very few for cleanliness!
