I stayed at the Montenotte in September of this year and had a pretty bad experience due to two weddings taking place over the weekend. Both wedding parties made excessive noise and were abusive to other guests as late as 4am and 5am. I had contacted the reception but they were unable to monitor every floor housing wedding guests. When...

Following my recent stay, the first since the refurb, I am seriously impressed with the Montenotte Hotel. It is stylish but calm, elegant but friendly, contemporary and with a real Cork feel to it and not to mention one of the best views in the city. I highly recommend the Montenotte whatever our reason for travel. This is a game...

Parking is difficult early to late evening with a small tight lot that seems to be shared with an apartment/club in the rear. Drop your bags prior to finding a spot since the hotel is built on the side of a hill and also difficult to maneuver around. The hotel is built like a set of steps so depending on...

We called in to catch some Live Jazz during the Jazz festival and had a great couple of hours in a very relaxed atmosphere. The place was jumping with loads on all day. But hey what do you expect from the Montenotte Hotel which is a cornerstone of the music scene in Cork city.

I spent two peaceful nights here. Even though I arrived about three hours before check-in, they allowed me to check in without issue. The desk staff was very helpful. The room was clean and the views from the back side of the hotel overlooking the city are lovely. The on site restaurant serves great food with a friendly staff and...

Myself & 3 others stayed at the Montenotte Hotel for two nights on the October Bank Holiday weekend. We were attending a wedding in Glanmire and this was the closest we could get a room as it coincided with the Jazz Festival. However, we were so glad we stayed here! From start to finish, it was a great experience. Having...

This Hotel has had a €1m makeover I am told and this is ongoing. Every member of staff we had contact with were brilliant and could not have been more pleasant or helpful. Strongly recommend a stay here. Food is superb. Male pianist was too loud and when we commented a member of staff immediately asked him to turn down...
