I stayed at this hotel for two nights with my friend. From the moment we arrived we were greeted with a warm welcome. The room was clean and we had two large double beds each. We decided to have tea/coffee on the terrace, this was a delight as there were heaters above us and blankets on the sofas. There was...

Sunday lunch is always a good test of a hotel kitchen and our lunch today at The Montenotte Hotel gets the full ten points! From the minute we entered the car park of the newly refurbished Hotel (although refurbished is an understatement, this is like a whole new hotel) and saw the chandeliers hanging from the outdoor trees we knew...

This hotel is a hidden gem. The best Customer Service I have ever experienced! The hotel is beautifully decorated, and the staff were amazing, nothing was a problem to them and we had a fussy 5 year old with us.

We stayed here for a night over the Easter break....it was the most relaxed, friendliest place we have stayed in, in a long time. From start to finish, food, service, accommodation and facilities were top class. Looking forward to going back! The restaurant staff couldn't have been more helpful and are a credit to the hotel.

There is a fantastic balcony area overlooking the city which is fabulous with cosy seating and throws. They are in the process of landscaping the gardens which will be amazing when finished....

Great location for any visit to Cork! We had a family room which catered for our needs - spotlessly clean, comfortable beds and bathroom large enough for all.
