We stayed in Rochestown park Saturday (14/07/12) night for a wedding. I am from cork and have been to the hotel for lunch and functions on a few occasions so am familiar with the hotel.
We checked in early before going to the wedding and i noticed the counter top in the bathroom wasn't cleaned properly at all. I ran my finger through a layer of dust. (see photographs,you will see my finger line through the dust.) We were in a hurry to get to the wedding so didn't have the opportunity to mention the problem to staff. I then put it out of my mind as i didn't want it to ruin our day.
I had high hopes for our stay here. I was quite disappointed. We weren't in the room at all really which is probably the main reason I didn't complain to staff but that's no reason to accept this low standard. The counter top was obviously wiped but any items in the bathroom were not moved to clean the place properly and it makes me wonder what other corners were cut! Don't get me wrong. The room was gorgeous, the decor is really nice but I really did expect a lot more.
Also the residence bar stopped serving alcohol between 4am and 4.30am which everybody thought was quite strange. There were still a lot of wedding guests and hotel guests in the bar. I don't really know what time a residence bar usually stays open until but we were informed this was extremely early to close.
We have an 11month old baby and this was only the second time we have been away from her. These getaways just don't happen, and it was just a shame that this put a damper on things.
