Food is extremely expensive & having to pay extra for sides just leaves a poor taste. The food however was delicious but fish is overpriced for Cork. On arrival there was no Carlsberg on sale at all which was very disappointing for both men in our group. They didn’t like any beers on offer. They went to order Captain Morgan and this was also not available. Not a good start for a large hotel to have limited options. For dinner wine was very slow coming to the table and this should be brought as soon as possible. The table was lovely & staff were good. Some were quite young and inexperienced but this is not their fault and require more training on the menu and drink options. It was a very enjoyable meal but could do with few changes to make me go back again.

I Booked an area in the bar for my friends 30th birthday, i went to view the area and confirm the location the day before where i was confirmed the location i wanted. When we arrived we were given another location that i specifically said i did not want and said this to the staff and they simply brushed it off and said they feel like they were doing us a favour giving us this area, again i specifically said where we wanted. We then had dinner booked for 7pm, we went to the restaurant to be seated for dinner to be told the table was not ready, at 7.25pm when we were brought to the table they were still dressing it and we were made to feel as if again they were doing us a favour! By 8.30pm we then only received our food and we all had only ordered mains. we then had to ask for the bill before people had finished there dinner as we had another location booked for 9 pm. Overall i felt the service was extremely poor and unsatisfactory for a premium hotel. I am also more disappointed in the fact that this was for a special occasion and i had spent time with the manager the day before in the hotel to confirm all the details. I will not be recommending this venue again due to the service from the staff in the bar and restaurant.

I had a reservation and no one explained to me that our group of 9 would be sat at 2 different tables. They only told me we would be sat at the high tables. So when we arrived to find we were seated seperately, it was quite disappointing. Also, I was given very dirty (lip marked) glasses twice. The service was not great, and it took ages for them to clear away our plates after we had finished eating. It seems that the staff need to be organized better by management so that things run more smoothly. That said, the food and drinks were good. The setting is gorgeous, and the DJ spun really good 'Loveboat-esque' tunes. I would go back, but maybe not with a large group.

Dear Sara Thank you for your Response. I am disappointing to hear that you felt let down on your last visit. I will certainly be taking this up with our hosting team as our policy on group seating should have been highlighted at booking stage. I will also be highlighting your feedback regarding the level of service you experienced with the team here. If you are ever looking to make another reservation for dinner or lunch, please don't hesitate to contact me directly and i will ensure a more enjoyable occasion We look forward to welcoming you back!
