First - Bantry town is a disgrace when it comes to litter and run down buildings. Cop on Bantry - have a little pride in yourself.
It is unfortunate that The Maritime is situated right in the middle of what is becoming a most 'untidy town'.
Having said that I was very pleasantly surprised with this hotel. I expected wall to wall wedding guests and traffic noise from this hotel which is situaed right in the town centre facing the main street. What I eperienced was nothing like that.
Efficient if a little unwelcoming
There is free car parking in the underground car park which is a bit of a trek especially if you have a lot of luggage. The car park is separate from the hotel.
Located right in the town centre, the hotel has been cleverly built in to the side of the street giving it a long narrow shape.
Our bedroom on the third floor overlooked the main street and bantry bay. Views were nice and street noise was very acceptable. The bedroom has everything you would need for a comfortable stay.
Nicely appointed with both bath and separate shower cubicle. There is a separate dressing room.
Reception is very well appointed and comfortable.
The Bar is modern but not very special
Dining room is very comfortable
Breakfast is standard buffet fare with about 4 other options cooked to order. The food is plentiful and staff are efficient.
Dinner: The menu is fairly adventurous if a little 'hotel like'. The wine list is good and reasonably priced.
Lovely swimming pool with jacuzzi and sauna. Nice helpful staff there.
It is a one minute walk to Bantry town centre.
Overall, this is a very nice hotel and comes recommended.
