“Beautiful Hotel with the nicest staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

Myself and my friend stayed here 6th and 7th June 2014. The hotel is beautiful and the food was amazing. The only thing better was how helpful and nice the staff were. A special mention of Kitty in the restaurant and Jenny in reception who couldn't do enough for us. The only very minor negative was the the steep steps at the entrance as I have arthritis in my knees but it's a small price to pay for such a lovely hotel and we had a ground floor room which had it's own little balcony which was spectacular. The Leisure facilities were exceptional too. A truly relaxing and luxurious experience. Will definitely be going back. I can't recommend this hotel enough.

Dear Margaret M,

Thank you for your recent review regarding your experiences at The Maryborough. We’re thrilled you and your friend chose our hotel for your holiday. Thank you so much for the compliments regarding the hotel surroundings, food, and especially our staff. I’ll be sure to pass your kind remarks along to them, and I’m so glad they were able to add value to your stay. I would like to offer my apologies if our entry steps were any inconvenience.

Thank you again for your review and recommendation, and we hope to welcome you back again soon.

Kind Regards,

Had a lovely stay here for two nights for a friend's wedding. The hotel is beautiful, the food was lovely, the spa was very relaxing but the thing that thing that struck me the most was how attentive and friendly the staff were, without being overpowering. Thanks to all for a lovely stay.

John and Mairead

We stayed for two nights, Friday and Saturday 6th and 7th June and had a wonderful time. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the room was lovely, looking out on the beautiful garden. The breakfast is amazing, everything you could want is available, right down to a homebaked apple pie. We found the loacation very convenient, just off the South Link, yet the garden gives a feeling of being in an oasis of calm.

Room Tip: We were on the ground floor looking out on the garden so you could sit out and relax on the patio...

We had a wonderful time staying at the Maryborough. The rooms are very updated and the hotel grounds are lovely. Also, the staff were very helpful, for example when we discovered our electricity converter was not working for charging all our electronics. They supplied a converter, which worked great. We found that the hotel is not situated close to the center of Cork, but it was a small inconvenience since the hotel is such a restful haven. We would stay there again if we visited Cork.

The place is just amazing. The staff are so friendly, not just polite, they are genuinely engaging and really make you feel at home. It has all the grandeur of an upmarket hotel but none of the snobbery. I've stayed in 5 star resorts where I felt awkward sitting on the furniture incase I'd crease a cushion, but the atmosphere in the Maryborough is so relaxed. The food was divine. Loved every minute of it, the spa, the leisure centre, our balcony overlooking the gardens, the banter in the bar. Would happily go back in the morning. I genuinely can't think of a fault with the place.
