Montenotte

Would recommend Tue, Oct 13, 2015
The Hotel Montenotte is quite a nice hotel, well laid out, well maintained and well serviced. The room were we stayed was ample enough and pretty clean. However, the views could have been better, just looking at the back of the hotel. The window does not open fully, only 1/4. The bar is nice and the restaurant offers nice food. In general quite happy with the stay, however the location is not great as it is not walking distance to the city centre.

Weekend treat

Would recommend Tue, Jun 30, 2015
This was our first stay at the Best Western. We were met with a warm and friendly welcome, along with the recently refurbished room we were soon chilling out and enjoying a lovely meal in the restaurant. The break went far too quickly but will look forward to staying there again.

Hotel was extremely noisey all night, bathroom was pretty bad too, pretty old and beat up looking. for the money I wouldn't recommend staying there, very budget looking hotel but not budget pricing.

Great place to stay on business

Would recommend Mon, Apr 20, 2015
Very reasonably priced hotel close to city centre with great views. Stayed one night & used leisure facilities which were good. For a business stay I would highly recommend it.

Good stay for one night

Would recommend Mon, Apr 6, 2015
The Montenotte was under renovations when we were there, which might have had something to do with the fantastic deal we got, but they did an excellent job of keeping the noise and mess isolated. The staff was superb. We only stayed a night, but would have been glad to stay on longer. We also didn't have time to eat there, so can't say anything about the food. If you have a car, the hotel is very convenient to the city centre. It's not a bad walk, either--about 15 minutes--but it's uphill all the way back (if you sweat, you will sweat). Cork is trafficky, but there appeared to be good parking available in the car park.

consistently excellent service

Would recommend Tue, Mar 10, 2015
I have stayed here several times on business and have constantly experienced excellent. Staff are all very friendly and helpful. Rooms are spotless and comfortable although the only fault is that in some of the rooms the showers are old models and not very strong. Beautiful views of Cork city

A Day Break

Would recommend Mon, Mar 17, 2014
The overall experience is just okay but I am def happy with experience we had esp with at least two Staff who excel from everyone. They are lovely people to deal with (Reception & Breakfast Crew). Based on what I have signed for that the room should have free wifi but on numerous occasion, no matter how many times i tried the room number & surname, still would not work. So by right, whatever you signed for on booking the hotel you should get it and not doing any contact in the Reception to fix the issue for you.

Dining

Def a good place to stay to experience Cork City nightlife & dining if you want a peaceful night sleep.

They don't know how to HOLD a reservation!

Would not recommend Wed, Oct 23, 2013
I had faith in this Best Western branded hotel; however, upon my 6:45 p.m. arrival in July 2013 I was notified that my confirmed internet reservation on the Best Western website was not going to be honored, my room was gone and that they had booked me into a “comparable” room at another hotel. In fact, the “comparable” hotel had no air conditioning! This when Ireland’s worst heat wave in eight years was pushing temperatures way into the 80’s. We had to open the windows to allow some cool night air into the hot room. The open windows in this “comparable” room allowed the noise from the hotel’s wedding reception celebrants into the room until late into the night. The open windows in the “comparable” room also meant we were awakened in the morning by those leaving early from the hotel’s parking lot. We experienced slamming car doors from start to finish! Upon discussion with Cork locals about this Best Western Montenotte’s inability to hold our confirmed reservation, I was informed that this is apparently a recurring practice of the Best Western Montenotte Hotel. We also heard that the owners of the Montenotte have a business interest in the hotel in which we were re-booked. If true, their business plan apparently is to intentionally overbook the Montenotte and then re-book people to their other "comparable" hotel. DO NOT MAKE A RESERVATION AND EXPECT IT TO BE HONORED AT THIS PLACE! I wrote a complaint to Best Western's International Operations VP and President and CEO. In an email from a staffer in Phoenix,: “Sorry, we had disappointed you”. So don't expect any explanations from the Best Western brand either.
