An exceptional hotel with friendly staff who made me feel welcome the minute I arrived. Ken the concierge and Gavin are two of the friendliest most helpful guys i have met. i was travelling for business and they could not have been more accommodating nothing was too much trouble. The hotel itself is beautiful, fabulous view and the bistro food is incredible as are the team who work there. The rooms are beautiful and have a real luxury feel to them, clean and the decor is divine. I would highly recommend this hotel also the Glasshouse Cocktail Bar another amazing space for drinks and friendly service.

I had the pleasure of staying in the Montenotte earlier this month and the experience was nothing short of amazing. From the lovely doorman to meeting Danielle the Guest Relations manager, every single person I met from the start to the end of my stay was so pleasant and welcoming. My room was absolutely gorgeous, quiet and spacious with an evening turn down service and wonderful room service. The breakfast each morning was brilliant with a wide range of options and even brought it to my room when I didn’t get a chance to go down in the morning! It was my first time staying in Cork and I will absolutely be back again to the Montenotte, thank you so much to all the staff for such an incredible stay. You all truly made my experience in Cork all the more wonderful. - Una T

I have never left a review before but felt I had to after our stay. We had a spa break to celebrate my sisters birthday and we had a brilliant time. Location is super, the interiors of the hotel are fun and quirky but also very comfortable and inviting. We had dinner in the panorama bistro, beautiful flavours and setting. The glasshouse is a must for an after dinner drink. We also had facials in the spa which were excellent. The best part of the hotel is the staff, feom the moment we arrived the dorrman made us feel so welcome, every single member of staff no matter what the dealings were, all were professional and friendly. I will definitely be back and recommend this hotel, better than any 5 star I have stayed in in Ireland. Thank you to all the amazing staff at the montenottee hotel for a lovely break and helping us celebrate our sisters birthday.

This was our 2nd time staying at the Montenotte. Again, everything was excellent. One person stood out to us though. The door-man (i am horrible for not knowing his name, my apologies). He is always super friendly, helpfull and just a absolute delight. I will come back just to have a chat with him. Please send our gratitude on to him. Thank you.

Stayed at the Montenotte in Cork for a night while traveling through Ireland. Great hotel, staff were very helpful at check-in and with bags to and from our vehicle. Parking was also good (and free - can't say that about many properties in Cork) though very full - luckily we were able to snag a spot. We didn't use the hotel's restaurant or room service as we opted to go try some local spots, but it looked great. Room was quiet, nicely sized, and beds were comfortable. Would gladly stay again if traveling to Ireland!

On a recent trip to Cork City we had the good luck to choose the Montenotte Hotel for our overnight stay. The Hotel is an oasis of comfort, top class facilities and good food near the heart of Cork City. The Glasshouse Cocktail Bar is wonderful, so after shopping during the day we retired to the hotel for cocktails, a superb dinner followed by a movie in the inhouse cinema and then sleep in the very comfortable bedroom. All the staff at the Monenotte were superb, helpful, friendly and very professional. Highly recommend.
