I came here mid week around 2pm without a reservation, it was very busy when we walked in but the Hostess Adrianna I believe was her name, she was very welcoming and found us a nice table. There was a new menu since the last time I’ve been here and I was eager to try some of the new things on the menu (the wings were to die for) our server for the evening was a lady called Lorna she was excellent throughout the service and really went out of her way to assist us. Food was delivered from the kitchen in a timely manner and it was beautifully presented. Compliments to the chef and his team. Finally after our meal we got a few drinks at the bar and was served by a lady called Janai who had a splendid English accent. All in all my evening here was excellent thanks to the team in Sutton’s bar and bistro. 5 stars I will definitely be returning.

very nice hotel, nice and very comfortable, great breakfast. Lounge area was fantastic. Really enjoyed our time there. Check in was easy, we were in our room within 10 minutes of walking in the front door. We had breakfast with our stay and it was terrific, probably the best breakfast during our whole week in Ireland, i would really recommend this hotel if you are staying in Cork.

First impressions upon arrival were great. It is in lovely grounds with trees and lawns. Plenty of free parking which feels secure. The building itself is modern and very impressive. Dinner in the bistro was fine although it was made clear that we had to reserve a table well in advance. Staff were generally cheerful and obliging. However, there were a few negatives. Our room was relatively small and not well equipped. Our double bed had a bedside light on only one side. No light was provided for the desk. The bathroom had a good sized shower cubicle but no bath. That said, the free Wi-Fi and TV were both fine. The location is near 3 miles from Cork city centre - that is about a 1 hour walk. There are bus routes going down the Douglas Road into town but the hotel reception wasn't able to give us details of bus times or provide a street map of the city. This was the most expensive hotel we stayed at during our recent holiday in Ireland but it was the only one in which we did not feel entirely at ease. Would we stay here again?. Possibly. There is nothing absolutely wrong with the hotel but we will probably try another place if we come back to Cork.

Regular in the pool- took lessons ages ago and over a year ago got more swimming lessons with Martina - she’s fantastic so patient! Hope she’s back from maternity leave and I can get more lessons as she’s really brought my ability up!!!! Xxx

Fab exterior with lovely autumnal colours, spacious lobby quite the corporate affair! Some of the corridors had sign of pre re vamp. Room was spacious beds not comfortable too soft for me and hubby! New menu trying a bit too hard no plain sandwiches available soup v good however! Breakfast was very impressive with fruit scones and pancakes and fry up if desired enjoyed stay overall staff v well trained.

Held a conference recently at Rochestown Park Hotel, praise justifiably due to staff in all departments for professionalism and quality of service provided to conference team and delegates.Room layout, a/v support and food & beverage /service delivery exceptional. Also quality of accommodation & bar food well worth mention.

I stayed at the hotel for 5 nights in October the week that a new menu was launched in Suttons Bar and Restaurant All the dishes I tried that week were beautifully presented and tasted very good Pork fillet with black pudding and pear chutney was a very large portion, absolutely delicious Red Thai curry with prawns had a lovely flavour with a hint of heat Mushroom Tortellini with a spinach and truffle cream was very filling and served with cheese toast which I used to soak up the delicious sauce! Fish and chips presented with a decoration of citrus aioli around the plate. Crispy batter and moist fish Overall a good selection on the menu with something for everyone

This hotel is a strange experience. The rooms are up or down a very small elevator. The rooms were okay, nothing special. The food was not enjoyable at all - at least what they served the tour group. They hotel really caters to business people not leisure travelers. it could be a hotel anywhere in the world. The oddest thing was the bar that was set up more to serve food and you had to have a reservation to just order a drink before dinner. The hotel is definitely not within walking distance to city center. it was a 15 euro taxi ride away. It is on a very busy road.

Stayed here for one overnight I found the whole experience really excellent. Friendly staff on check in. Bedroom whilst on the small side was spotless. Bathroom had great shower. Breakfast and lunch was to a really high standard. The conference team were on hand and they delivered on the service they promised. Would definitely return here.

Hotel is located just off the main Douglas road so it's very accessible and quite close to the city, however avoid travel in and around Douglas at rush hour/school times. As previous posters mentioned, the bathrooms are a bit worn and tired and quite dirty looking, especially the sealant around the bath and showers. A bit mouldy so it looks very unattractive. The 1st room I was in, 108, was really bad and there was hair in the bath and in the sink, so I requested a change, and was put in 417. A very large room with 2 beds and a large TV, plus a nice view over the N40. Again the bathroom let the side down, but it was an improvement on the 1st one. Check in was quick and seamless even if the receptionist was a little dour. Evening meal was a nice experience in the very atmospheric bistro. Reasonably priced and well presented food that was of good quality. Service was a little slow, but they were very well mannered and polite. Duck parfait starter was 100% as was the feather of beef main. Apple Madeira was good too, but needed more sauce or custard as it was a little dry. Overall it was a very nice evening. Breakfast was a good buffet style, plenty of smoked salmon and pastrami, fresh pastries, fruit and the good 'ol full Oirish. Self service tea/coffee and the option of coffee to go.
