I stayed at Hayfield Manor as part of a weekend break in Cork with a friend. From the moment we arrived the level of service and warmth of greeting was exemplary. I have been fortunate enough to have travelled extensively and stayed in many excellent hotels around the world but the Hayfield Manor could teach the best of them a thing or two about service. Attentive without being intrusive and where nothing was too much trouble, smiling, friendly, and prestinely turned-out staff saw to our every need.
The room was beautifully and stylishly furnished with everything you would need for a comfortable stay. The bathroom however let it down a little, the sealant around the bath being discoloured and in need of some attention, and the bath taps a little tempramental.
The breakfast was very good, well presented, attentively served, and with an excellent selection of Items. The Irish cooked Breakfast however was a little weak, the sausages being very small indeed and accompanied by a surfeit of sautéed potatoes that looked a little out of place on the plate, though possibly this is more an issue of personal taste (my preference being potato bread/hash browns as an accompaniment). The Eggs Benedict however were the best I've yet tasted, just perfection.
We also used the hotels wonderful leisure facilities, the pool, steam room and Jacuzzi all being of the highest standard easily accessed and scrupulously maintained.
All in all we had a wonderful stay. The Hayfield Manor is arguably one of the best hotels I've stayed at in Ireland. In the tradition of the great family-run grand Irish hotels of the past but even better. I would have no hesitation recommending it, and will definitely be back.
