We regularly have lunch at the hotel at Fota Island Resort, and each time we have visited it has been a lovely experience. The staff are so accommodating and always give a superb service worthy of its five star reputation. The bar/restaurant staff are so friendly and helpful, especially Kellie who makes us feel very welcome and always gives a...

The lodge accommodation is absolutely first rate here. Things are a little less 5 star up at the Hotel though. Service for food in the bar is haphazard to say the least, a meal we had there on March 14th ( place not too busy) was a total disaster, it simply seemed as if they did not know how to...

Was invited to a wedding here. It is a magnificent place. When we arrived it was raining when the concierge saw us he came out to help us and had umbrellas to cover us. Staff are the most friendly and courteous I have ever met. Nothing was to much trouble. We were in room 158 at front of hotel great...

We stayed over St. Patrick's weekend. On arrival the receptionist was very unpleasant. I had been given the night away as a present but they booked two rooms instead of one and therefore card was declined. However, not knowing two rooms had been booked, my mum rang the day before to check if all was in order as no money...

There are TV's in each bedroom and in the living room with music and movies. The kitchen is well equipt and the place was spotless. The only thing...

We were overall disappointed with our stay in foto island, I have no idea how this hotel is rated as a 5 star...... we certainly didn't have a five star experience. We are a family of four and stayed 3 nights in a suit . The room was fine, a good size but there was nothing luxurious about it. The...

How this hotel is holding onto its 5 stars is beyond me! On arrival, the lobby is very impressive I must admit, but that is it as far as the wow factor goes in my opinion. The rooms are being renovated and my room had been done. Lovely colour scheme to be fair but paint smudges on the desk unit,...
