              5.8

              the bedrooms were very comfortable. we were there for a wedding and the function room was beautiful.

              the food wasn't great. soup was cold and portions small. felt the price was high too as it didnt include breakfast and this was expensive at €15 per person also. as it was a wedding and there was a lot of guests staying they could have offered a more competitive rate.

            • Older travelers
              9.6

              We attended a wedding reception at the hotel and stayed overnight. The reception staff were very friendly and the rooms were very comfortable.

              I was at Garryvoe for a wedding. The champagne reception was beautiful and the meal, function room etc was also beautiful. Our own room was lovely and spacious.

              Function room was overly warm.

            • Family with children
              9.2

              Staff were friendly, atmosphere was relaxing and we loved the health club. Good access to the beach and a nice little playground outyside. wifi was available in hotel for the iphone!

              coffee in rooms was not great (but there was loads of it) . Kettle was small and we would have liked a fridge in room.

            • Older travelers
              8.8

              I loved the location and the fact we did not need to use our car - all we needed was on site or nearby.

              a bit pricy, as there are some very good deals on offer nowadays.

            • Older travelers
              8.8

              wonderful staff, very welcoming, great food, on the beach, brilliant spa

              Coffee in room not good. absence of shower gel/shampoo in spa, too little shampoo/shower gel in rooms.

            • Group of friends
              8.2

              Beautiful views from top floor seaside. Watched a silver moon on the sea at night, and a red sunrise. Top rooms have balconies that open the room.

              Food ok and not cheap. Good to have it there, but lots better a short car journey awsy.

              It's location beside the sea and magnificent view of Ballycotton bay.

              Leisure Complex excellent, staff very nice.

              Would have been nice if you could get some Spa treatments.

              I wanted a hotel on route to Waterfird from Cork the day before and not too far of of the main route, ws looking for a change over the ususal busioness city hotel.

              Rooms were excellent as was the service, great location.

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              Friendly staff who were helpful and always greeted us after our days out. Receptionist loaned me some sunglasses as I had forgotten mine. Clean and spacious hotel. Lovely large room with an excellent sea front view. Loved the pool area and had never tried aqua jogging before but thought it was great. Thought the outside hot tub was fabulous. Very well equipped gym and nice and clean. Plenty of parking and no hidden 'trick costs' which is much appreciated in these days. On-line booking was easy and trouble free. Will stay here again!

              Very few negatives but I felt a lack of supervision available in the gym ( ok for me but maybe not for infrequent visitors to a gym). I joined a fitness class and was a bit surprised at minimal warm up and no injury checks and no easier options were given for beginners. I had the feeling the instructor was doing a last minute fill in. I am an instructor myself so probably no-one else noticed. Bar area where we mostly ate tended to get a bit dirty when children had been eating there. I think it is important to have an interim clean up before others dine there Could do with some herbal teas in the room as not all people drink caffeinated drinks. When we ordered some, the hotel was out of them.

              Lovely location, super friendly staff

              At 145 euro for a double room felt the price was a little steep. Struggled to find a tv anywhere besides our room. one of the lifts was not working
