Gresham, cork

The hotel is in a great location. the room was fine, though the view was of the car park. at one point we had "brown" water coming through the shower and the hot tap which reception said they'd send someone up straight away to fix but we had to remind them again before the repair was carried out. the leisure facilities were really good and really quiet which was great. the restaurant was fantastic, the food was top class and the staff were excellent, the manager of the restaurant even bought us a drink on the second night which was a really nice touch. cork itself was good but very expensive.
