Well done to the fab staff. The food was lovely and even though we were a big group with all sorts of needs and tastes, it worked beautifully. Every time we stay at the Maritime, it is consistently excellent.

Very little options for the plainer eater, not too many varied desserts. Dinner I got was scrumptious and my friends was delish too.

Prawns in seafood platter starter were not great and tasted like cheap shop bought And veg tasted frozen and bland. Scallops were amazing as was lamb shank and the 2 desserts we got. Staff were so lovely and helpful but could have been slightly more knowledgeable re the food.

Our meal last night was delicious it was so favoursome and fresh, the presentation was also lovely. The coctails (old fashioned and rum coctail) were refreshing and well balanced..staff were great, very friendly. We are going to the county cooking championship and were delighted to hear this morning that Adrian Biffen is competing in it... can't wait to cheer him on!

We booked for a birthday meal for 3.45,the starter was basic,chowder lacked fish,main course from the carvery had to be bought back out from the kitchen. The food was dry,lacked taste and was sparse, very disappointing and embarrassing for me as I had booked for us,so sad.

We had a lovely meal served up by very friendly staff. However the one disappointment is the background music that is playing. So much good music out there readily available but the chosen style is 80's gold... really? The same music was playing again at breakfast the following morning. There is a time and a place for this but to me it is not conducive to setting an atmosphere for dining. I did mention this to reception when checking out to be told very politely that the staff have no control over this as it is a subscribed to service, not good enough in my opinion. I am sure that the hotel can request the genres and styles that they want and more importantly don't want I hope this is taken as constructive feedback, and I will certainly recommend the hotel and will also return in the future. Thank you

Charge ten euro for a steak or black sole extra which leaves the menu very limited a clever move I would be saying as these two item were the best choice so I paid it as I didn’t like the other options which was a very disappointing part

Great service and nice atmosphere, perhaps a little expensive for the quality of the food which was ok but not stunning. A lovely evening.
