Just back from a 2 night break in Fota. Hotel room was lovely and spacious. The Spa was amazing. Over all service in the hotel was poor, seem to have alot of staff but they do not seem interested in serving you. Hard work to get their attention and when you did you were waiting along time for what you... More

We booked the restaurant for our son's christening for a party of 12 plus 3 small children. When we arrived we were told there was no booking which was embarrassing enough but the manager did his best and found us a table. Three people ordered starters (2 soups and 1 chowder) which took an hour to come out. Our main... More

It's my third time visiting fota island, and I just feel standards are slipping a little, we were in room 214. The shower water would leak into the bathroom when you had a shower even though there was a drain. The fridge door would lock when you closed it making it impossible to re open. Two nights before we arrived... More

Stayed one night.. Great place, had to wait a little while to check in as it was midterm. Went to the bar to have tea while we waited. Must say between the bar and restaurant both were expensive for a 5 star hotel it didn't seem like 5 star quality other than that everything was great rooms were really nice.

Stayed for one night . Bar food was excellent although overpriced. Hotel itself is beautiful but I would say 4 star not 5. Dust and cobwebs in our room but that the only fault and that me being picky. Would love if there was some back ground music In bar or lobby. Staff excellent and definitely make the hotel

Head waiter advised 8 people before us & could not guarantee we would get served before 9. Options dinning room or room service! While having drink in foya, 30 minutes later, waiter advised table available... More

Could not fault this hotel. We stayed on a Monday, and although we thought it would be quiet, it was bursting with activity. The staff here are very helpful and made us feel welcome, there was nothing more we could have wanted. The spa is the nicest spa Iv ever been to. It was mid term break and there were... More
