Going down hillfrom yummmymummy
fabulous but be cautiousfrom slmeath
Having stayed at the hotel before I knew that it was a lovely place to stay in and was suprised to find it was quite different, with the hotel getting an interior overhall and huge new extension.
We were plesantly suprised to be upgraded to a spa bedroom, as there were many wedings on on all standard rooms went to the guests. Our room was in the new spa wing which was super modern with all fixtures and fittings carefully selected to the most up to date style. Floors and furniture were a beautiful dark cherry wood. If I found any fault it was that the wood was so dark and mood lightling very subdued that I found it difficult to find certain clothes in our wardrobe, lighting would help in there. The tv was a flat screen monitor very nice, and the windows were large and blinds created soft light and privacy.
One thing that put off my partner somewhat was that the bath was actually located in the bedroom, with a huge mirror with subtle lighting behind it. I explained it was supposed to be romantic but may not be very practical. The toilet and shower were in the ensuit room. The furnitings were gorgeous in the room very comfortable and modern.
Our problem was in the restaurant, the staff were mainly french and seemed to misinterperate many of our requests, our fillet steaks were well done, when we asked for medium, and when our bill arrived it was layed out very confusingly trying to charge us for 8 glasses of wine at €11.50 a glass when we ordered 4 glasses this was rectified. On the second meal we ordered a half bottle of wine as we were aware of our budget and were given a whole bottle and charged more, plus desserts were charged separately which was supposed to be part of the meal. It seems that even when you book the package deal, they are trying to find more ways of getting money out of you, which I found very sly and left a bad taste in our mouths.
The hotel was lovely reception staff lovely, but the bar was unfriendly with no atmosphere, the staff seemed harrassed and more interested in getting things done than in actually doing them correctly and had messed up our order on a few occasions. The pool is lovely and changing rooms fabulous. We would have loveld to try out the spa but found prices too high, considering the location of hotel ie not in dublin!
In order to charge those prices they need to overhall the bar and restaurant, work on staff customer services and not try to rip off their customers as having been there 3 times now I feel that I shall not be returning again, despite some good qualities.

Fantastic hotelfrom TravelReview
Used to be nice but has gone down hill!from Toose1
The hotel has since changed and we were very disappoineted when we went back this summer. It's as if all they are interested in is funding their building works. Everything is overpriced down to a cup of tea which is about 4.50 euro! I mean come on you wouldn't pay that in the Ritz! The new spa prices are extortionate. Not sure how they're coming up with their prices as they don't really compare with other 4 star spas. They're outrageous!!
The hotel is no longer well kept and could do with a complete overhaul. One of the legs on the table in the residents bar was hanging off and the floor could have done with a good clean.
Private houses have been built in the grounds of the hotel which take away from the Country house element. Not to mention the building work going on next to the hotel. This used to be a very nice classy hotel but now the whole thing just smacks of greed! They've forgotten the customer!
Absolutely the best!from Casarina
Relaxing - Great Staff - A Great Hotelfrom Zoney
Rooms are spacious simple and relaxing. Fabulous garden view and there are excellent leisure facilities. The bar come foyer area is very spacious and ambient and there is a relaxed unstuffy atmosphere about the hotel that lends itself to a very relaxing stay
One or two signs of wear and tear on the fixtures and fittings however not that you’d hardly notice but they do seem to be refurbishing at the moment so I am sure that will be addressed in time.
Stayed in one of the suites on a previous occasion and that was sheer old world luxury in the period house part of the hotel.
I paid a rate of €145 per night for two nights which I felt was borderline ok – it was a little above my companies approved rate and only a slight deterrent from staying. If I was to have one negative I thought a charge of €6.50 on top of the room rate for broadband internet access was a little steep but perhaps I am just used to it being free in Radisson Hotels
All in all this is a superb hotel and with out doubt one of my favourites !!
ooooohhhhhhhhhh fancy!from dinkyninky
ok the are getting some work done but they were really apologetic about it and it didn't dusturb us a bit. the view out the window wasn't great bu we didn't care becaus einside the room was fantastic.
this hotel is great.
the old part of the house is eally well maintained, with old furniture and decor, and the new bits are very cool and modern.
was not dyng about 'open plan' bar it was like being in the lobby.
the staff were so nice and helpful to us.
the pool is lovely, and changing rooms etc v luxurious. i think the new spa will be amazing when built.
overpriced and under re constructionfrom society
absolute bliss!from baileys5
Top Local Tips for Cork
Explore Since moving to Cork, I've found so many beautiful areas.... Be sure to visit Blarney Castle, Fota Wildlife gardens and Ballycotton Bay. Any hotel will provide details. Its best to drive around and find your 'time out' place. Cork's Kent Station is just outside of the city and will take you all across Ireland. Dublin is less than three hours away! There are plenty of taxis to whisk you off and as they know Cork so well, you can ask them a heap of questions.
Book your taxi early on weekend nights In Cork city, as with most other large Irish cities at the weekends, it can be extremely difficult to get a taxi on weekend nights after the bars and cubs get out so book in advance if you can.
