We went in early January for my birthday. The hotel is in a great location, near Cork city, Mahon point and Cobh. It's a large hotel with lots going on but the staff just dealt with all the functions seamlessly. Our room, was clean, had 2 comfortable double beds and a bathroom with both a bath and shower. The staff in the restaurant were lovely friendly and efficient, as too in the bar. The restaurant menu was lovely fir both adults and kids abd the foidcwas delicious. There's a large lobby to sit with the kids after dinner, have a drink, relax before bed. There's also a great leisure centre and we all loved the pool.

Stayed in this hotel recently and have stayed at this hotel after Christmas for the last 4 years. Rooms clean and comfortable. Suttons bar staff and reception staff really friendly. Food in bar and breakfast lovely. Could not fault. Favourite part of this hotel is the foyer. Can sit here with kids at night while they watch movie and parents enjoy a quite drink. Would highly recommend and very near to mahon point and cork city

Booked 2 rooms here as we were attending a funeral in the city. We all agreed that we would like to return again in more fortunate circumstances as we were very pleased with our accommodation. We were particularly pleased by the disabled facilities in the room and throughout the hotel as we had a wheelchair user in the family. The rooms and bathrooms were very well equipped and very warm and comfortable. The food was very enjoyable and I managed to have a short trip to the Leisure Centre which was nice too. The cost was very competitive although it was possibly a less in demand time of year ?

Really impressed in so many ways. Nice room, good breakfast, beautiful foyer, bar etc. Wedding celebration was one of the best ive attended and wedding meal was absolutely perfect. Even more impressive considering the high number in attendance. Only downside was not being able to check in early but in fairness it was very busy so can't complain really.

We stayed here on 28th December after a visit to the Panto in Cork. I have to say the entrance is not very easy to find (all the way around the other side of the hotel) but we got there... However we went to the restaurant for a coffee and bite to eat - the food was good but the coffee was terrible. Worst cappuccino I've ever had I'd say. The room was nice although a bit expensive - checkout is 11am which seems very early. Breakfast was very poor - badly arranged so I didn't find what I was looking for easily, the cooked breakfast was very poor - mushrooms and tomatoes that weren't properly cooked and eggs that had been sitting a while. Self service tea and coffee and queues waiting to be seated. The leisure centre pool was lovely though. Overall, very mediocre for the price.

Nice hotel, room is clean but the only complaint I have to make is the hotel and room were far to warm. Asked at reception to please look at our room temperature but it didn't make a difference the room was way to warm. This would but me off going back because we didn't sleep it was that warm in the room. We even left the window opened.

Incredible hotel for a 4 star rating, it felt more like a 5 star. Although it appears by the motorway on the map, the hotel is sort of in its own forest, so you can't hear the motorway and the surroundings are beautiful and peaceful. We went at Christmas time, and the whole hotel felt very festive, especially in the reception, bar and restaurant. The bistro there served us enormous portions for lunch (chicken arrabiata for me) and very rare, high quality fillet steak in the evening. The prices were very fair for the quality, I felt. The buffet breakfast was also great. Our bathroom was a little bit hot because of the pipes. Our room was huge, comparable to a deluxe room in Vegas we had stayed in. It had a very high ceiling, a soft bed, black-out curtains, and mood lighting if you wanted it! We were quite chuffed with this hotel!

Beautiful hotel however the service provided on this occasion was a let down. We decided to dine in the hotel restaurant and the service was unfortunately sloppy, we reckon a lot of the staff were new and the restaurant appeared to be overbooked despite the fact that a lot of tables said reserved so the staff seemed unsure how best to seat people. After our main meal nobody came back to us to offer dessert or tea/coffee despite being charged for it. Upon flagging this to the waiter it took almost 15 minutes for it to be rectified. During our one night stay we also booked into the spa and the treatments were very rushed! Overall the hotel seemed understaffed! We had read good reviews previously however we wouldn't recommend.

Was recommended this place by an colleague whilst on business from the UK Had driven across via the Holyhead-Dublin ferry and driven down to Cork whilst visiting a customer for 2 days. My customer (ELS) was about a 15 minute drive away in peak traffic. The hotel and grounds is massive and reception is round the back and to the side if like me you enter the car park from front via long drive way (keep going past health centre and conference centre). Ate in bar and burger was very tasty with Coors light my drink of choice, friendly staff. Complementary Wi-fi which was fast enough though the mood lighting did confuse me at first in room. Very nice bathroom and will be back in new year.

Stayed the one night Reasonable price room for area, room was a decent size on the top floor. Shower room, would of preferred a bath but bathroom was a good size. Staff very nice, talked to health spa staff as well and very helpful. Food was very good, generous portions, tasty and quick very good staff. My only criticism is the light feature in the room in the suspend ceiling creaked all night and the lights occasionally flashed. Your glass hanging from the ceiling in reception need a good dust!
