Great Stay At The Blu
While on holiday, my wife and I wanted a mix of B&B's and hotels. As I have stayed at Blu's before we thought we would give it a try. We were truly impressed by the friendliness of the staff and the amenities the hotel offered. Their fitness center was first rate and helped me stay ahead of the great food I was experiencing in Ireland. It is only a few miles to downtown Cork and easily accessible from the highway so just perfect for us. We will definitely stop by again when visiting Cork.
From check in to the restaurant and bar this hotel is great, very friendly and helpful staff and excellent facilities. We had a staff outing of 21 people and the hotel helped us plan the whole trip and everything went perfectly, lovey food and really nice rooms.
I have not stayed at this Hotel for a while and I have to say that the check in and room given to me was first class the staff were friendly , the room large and the Bar Food was of a high quality and the staff were full of good humour. The B/Fast was well presented and there was a good choice - The Hotel was busy what with Weddings and many holiday makers a lot with children. I will do more of these over nights in the winter and I will make this my southern base.
