Excellent service as would be expected. Some absolutely stunning views around the grounds and the golf course. 25 mins drive from Cork Airport. A lovely place for a wedding that we attended. Breakfast fantastic, rooms large, comfortable and clean. Fantastic and relaxing bathrooms. Didn't get a chance to use the spa so cannot comment. However, we would like to go... More

Attended a wedding here recently and totally enjoyed the experience. Wedding meal was totally excellent and room beautifully presented. Staff were superb from Reception to Banqueting & Bar staff. Banqueting staff were very attentive. Beautiful breakfast room especially on a lovely summers morning. Will definitely return. Loved our room especially the bathroom. You have a beautiful property well done.

Overall we enjoyed our stay but the hotel is by no means 5*. Having worked the the hotel industry for the last 15 year in 4 and 5* hotels fota was a little disappointing. The aim of a 5* should be to go above and beyond your guests expectations. No turn down service either!! Shower blocked when we arrived would... More

My husband and I spent a week with our 10 month old baby in a 2 bedroom lodge. It was perfect for us and had everything we needed. Baby slept well in the travel cot provided. The lodges are decorated and furnished to a high level. Each lodge has a patio area just off the kitchen/dining room that backs onto... More

Just returned from a week in a three bedroom court side lodge and it was fab. The bedrooms and the bathrooms (3) were kitted out to hotel standard and was a home away from home for a family of two adlts and two teens. Staff were fab & facilities were great and I'd definitely go again.

We've just returned from a one week stay in the court side self catering houses in Fota Island resort with our 2 kids and a baby. It was a fantastic experience and the two bed roomed house we stayed in was just perfect. It was equipped with everything we needed and a lovely 5 minute stroll from the hotel. The... More
