The food was great, the servers were both attentive and gave us space to enjoy the food. The atmosphere was great and the price was very good value. We had the afternoon tea and we're not disappointed.
Didn't love the self service breakfast was advised wronly on how it worked so therefore the first morning got a cold breakfast and no eggs was very disappointed with this.
I am coeliac and the biscuit that came with the coffee was not gluten free, there wasn’t a big selection of food considering the €25 price tag. Also the latte ordered came out as normal instead of with almond milk, when they brought out the almond latte the milk had separated. The teapot that the camomile tea came in was dirty. The service was prompt though and the setting was nice.
Everything was 5 Star. If I had to make a criticism, it is in relation to how small the press was for hanging up ones clothes. It was extremely small. Otherwise 5* all the way. Thanks.
Our stay at fota island was beyond any expectations we ever could of had .... the staff couldn't do anymore to make our experience the most memorable we've ever had.... we will definitely go back
Incredible value for money. Warm scones, rich delicious desserts. Beautiful view. Very nice staff.
Would not class this as a 5 star. Nothing majorly wrong with our experience - small elements were not up to scratch -it was not a 5 star experience / 5 star service, so I feel it was overpriced.
Beautiful hotel for afternoon tea for my sister 50th birthday , really relaxing and enjoyable @ 25.00 each it is good value.
Afternoon tea was lovely was pricey enough for what was provided though.
The afternoon was quite pleasant. However, some attention needs to be paid to the service items. The tea pot used for the service was stained on the outside so did not appear to have been cleaned properly. This does not create a good first impression. Other than that we enjoyed the afternoon tea.
We went to the spa before lunch and it was amazing the staff were so nice and helpful,the staff in the restaurant were very attentive and customer service was brilliant the food was also amazing we really did have a 5 * day and will be returning
Truly a lovely experience. Your staff were so attentive, food was delicious, we’ll definitely will return again.
The food and atmosphere were first class. The waiter was excellent in his recommendations and polite.
We had a beautiful meal to celebrate our daughter's confirmation. The staff were very friendly and service excellent. Thank you!
Amazing stay, friendly helpful staff! Room fresh clean and modern! Food exceptional in the restaurant. Fantastic buffet breakfast with a wide range of options to suit everyone! Spa warm welcoming and relaxing. Perfect get away for a relaxing weekend. Only a short drive to cork city also
A pleasant visit for afternoon tea. Would recommend
I think that the afternoon tea here was very disappointing... for what your paying It definitely was not worth it. The sandwich selection was very small.. the top tier was full of macaroons and truffles which weren’t very satisfying. The second tier was scones which were delicious. However if I was to return I would just return for a tea and scone as I think you do not get value for your money here.
Afternoon tea selection was a little under whelming, there were big hot cross buns and scones on the second plate which was very ordinary. Maybe small hot cross buns and scones would have been more appealing? Chicken and beef was lovely. Maybe chicken cucumber sandwich too for an option. As an option for afternoon tea in addition to coffee/tea maybe some elderflower water or something like that too would be nice?
Lovely Afternoon Tea service for my Mom on Mothers Day. The food, Tea and Coffee were Fantastic. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing afternoon or to treat someone.
Myself and my Mother stayed over night for a spa break. The spa was lovely few more of the thermal suite pool areas not working even since the last time we visited. We ate in the restaurant. I asked for my steak medium/well and unfortunately it was very well done. The room was lovely and spacious. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. Def be back :)
Really enjoyable afternoon tea. Will be returning.
Amazing afternoon tea
I was really disappointed with our two night stay at Fota. On arrival we were not made feel very welcome as we did not have a voucher printed. We had to sit in reception for 15 mins while we tried to get it printed. In the restaurant I asked for my beef medium- well. It came well done if not over done. I was looking forward to using the spa and was sent a voucher by my friend when i arrived. I could not book any treatments as the spa was full. The jacuzzi in the spa was not even working son could not even make use of that. My friend sent me a bottle of champagne for my birthday to my room- when it arrived I had to ring down to reception to ask who it was from Because they forgot to leave a note. Overall very poor experience. Not worth the money, nothing 5 star about your hotel.
We had to ask twice for Milk & sugar and when they came tea was cold ..However from then on service was grand ..Appreciated the extra thought behind the birthday presemtation plate ..top marks for that ..
