As title says but this doesn't really follow onto the bedrooms, they're nice enough but I wouldn't rate them 5* standard.. Our view was pretty much of a concrete wall. Found the staff to be a little pretentious in the reception area, we paid for our stay with cash and I felt I was being looked down on because I... More

Previously I reviewed this hotel and was delighted to return. Because I had two nights this time I got to explore the grounds and they are phenomenal. Unlike last time we also got to the leisure centre and it is seriously worth a visit. We had a lovely meal on the Saturday night. We were happy to eat at a... More

Stayed at this hotel in our way to West Cork. Thought it would be nice to take in Fota Wildlife Park and break the journey. The hotel was lovely. The rooms were nice and clean with beautiful bathrooms. The only thing I didn't like was what if was told at dinner by our server/waitress. As I was about to pay... More

Gorgeous park at your disposal. We rented a cottage and the clothes washer was broken - over the course of a week they couldn't manage to fix it or get a replacement (but did issue 10% discount when i asked). Be wary of the restaurant bills - they will allow the credit card company to change currency and charge you... More

Myself and my mother visited for a 2 night weekend stay. Although there were aspects of our stay that we enjoyed there were far too many small issues that disappointed. Obviously as it is a 5 star hotel it is pricey but it is not worth the money. Let down on food and service (both in the hotel and the... More

We booked our stay in the lodges originally for 2 nights on our drive across Ireland but we liked it so much we extend our stay another night. It was nice to cook our own meals for a few days in our private kitchen surrounded by the Irish woods. Very nice modern decor in the lodges & a fire place.... More

So many highs during my stay: Reception staff were excellent and couldn't help enough (Natalie and Aoife are two names that stuck with me). We had a problem with a voucher, but Rory (Manager) was absolutely excellent and helped us out without fuss. He even remembered our names the following morning, which was a nice touch considering the size of... More
