My daughter and I spent an afternoon at this hotel, we had afternoon tea and spa treatment. The afternoon tea was delicious, lovely selection of food. The hot stone massage was fabulous, the whole experience in the spa was great. I found it very relaxing. I look forward to going back. Thank you.

This was our 6th time to visit Fota Island Resort, the last time we were here we found the rooms to be a little tired looking and a little dated. And if it weren't for the food, we might not have come back. However, this time around we found that there has been significant investment in the rooms from new... More

We had a great family trip to Fota. We had a spacious bedroom, the hotel had a lovely spa and the food was delicious. It was great spot for a family get together, I would love to visit the hotel soon again. Cobh and the Wildlife park are nearby and well worth a visit.

Just returned from a two day stay at this hotel. Everything was wonderful from start to finish. On check in the lady was extremely helpful and although quite busy on account of it being a weekend, she never rushed us and was very informative. Three staff members offered assistance with our luggage on the short distance from arrival to check... More

Very disappointing - staff need training and product reflects an average branded hotel as opposed to 5 star resort. Room is ok , food very average , swimming pool tired and more like a public facility Overall I would not return or recommend

I have just returned from a very stressful and disappointing stay in a 3 bed courtyard lodge in Fota island resort with my partner and young daughter. Having been telephoned by the hotel to the point of harassment (6 times over the preceding 2 months) to confirm our stay we were given keys to a house that was not only... More

I have just returned from an extremely stressful and disappointing stay at a 3 bed courtyard lodge in this resort. Having been telephoned by the hotel to the point of harassment (no less than 6 times over the course of the preceding two months) and relentlessly asked to confirm my booking, we arrived to find that our lodge was not...

Lovely hotel but not as good as previous visits. The floors are getting noisier! Lots of children on Sunday and Monday, would visit again mid week. Excellent spa and bar food, give the restaurant a miss in the evening unless you like somewhere with no atmosphere! Great breakfast.
