Was a very indifferent stay. Indifferent service. Reception felt akward and indifferent.
Staff (restaurant) clearly overwhelmed on this occasion. Very disorganised.
The hotel was ok but pretty average and forgettable.

The food here was great. Very efficient staff. Lovely bar area. The swimming pool was very relaxing if not a bit small. Not a hotel for children with I did find peaceful. Real upper class place to stay

Dear ciara1982

Thank you for the kind review that you posted on Tripadvisor recently regarding your stay with us at The Maritime. I am delighted you enjoyed your stay. I should advise you that we do have some great family room facilities and for weekends in the summer we do get quite a lot of happy younger customers too. You obviously wanted a quieter break and I am delighted we were able to offer the same for you.

Kind regards & Thanks again

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a few nights and really enjoyed our time. The hotel suite was great value for money. A friendly staff and a fantastic breakfast in the morning. We can easily reccomend it. A great base for exploring the area.

Beautiful hotel rooms are Devine. Food is great and the staff are friendly. Was at a wedding once here as well and could not fault it. In all the hotels in cork I've stayed in, this is by far my favourite it's a home from home

Dear Collmgt1986

"Home from Home", "My Favourite Hotel in Cork!" How do I respond to that, except to say thank you for these Tripadvisor comments recently posted. I suppose this is the traditional experience that Irish Hoteliers hope to give to their clients......that you feel at home! I am so glad that our team succeeded in this with you & hope to see you return soon. I will pass on your comments to all the team.

Kind regards

We spent just one night here and would have liked to stay a little longer.
The rooms were really nice, very spacious and nicely decorated.
We ate in the restaurant and food was very good. Breakfast was great too with
a great selection.
Staff extremely helpful and pleasant.
Will return.

Dear VOVA

Thank you for your kind Tripadvisor review of your recent stay with us at The Maritime Hotel. It is always a little more pleasing when we get comments from Senior Tripadvisor Reviewers as they have plenty of background in the use of varied facilities. Your comments will be passed on to the team who will appreciate them as much as I did, I'm sure.

We stayed for 3 nights on a 2 night break with breakfast and one dinner and an extra night. I was a little apprehensive on the approach as the entrance to the underground car park looks like a temporary arrangement and wasn't very attractive.However the carpark was very spacious and a great facility even though there is no direct inside access from the carpark to the hotel. The hotel exterior would also benefit from a little more greenery around the entrance and along the front. We were greeted by a very pleasant and friendly receptionist and given a room on the third floor overlooking the harbour. The room was large,well equipped, comfortable and quiet even though the hotel was full.The breakfast buffet had a choice of continental and cooked meals with freshly prepared dishes available if preferred. The urban styled bar served food and had live music in the evenings over the weekend. We enjoyed our meal in the restaurant . The food and the service was good and the seating comfortable .We did use the pool but found the changing facilities a little basic and in need of a facelift.Overall we had a good experience here and would return. One of the best things about this hotel is the cheery friendly staff who make you feel very welcome.

Room Tip: Ask for front overlooking harbour .Rooms at the back may be quieter but don't have a view. We sl...

Dear dustylin

Thank you for your kind review on Tripadvisor regarding your recent stay with us at the Maritime Hotel. I was particularly interested to note your perception in the extra comments that you loved the view and while rooms at the back while might be quieter lost out on the view!

I am delighted that you found all our staff warm and welcoming and that while you have some minor critical points regarding upgrading of some of the facilities you were overall very pleased with your stay.

I will pass on your comments to the team here who will be as pleased as I am i'm sure.

Kind regards
