Stayed here the other night. Dined in bar and quality of food was excellent. There was a Christmas party there as well, but they left to move to their own room. They were a lovely crowd and not rowdy or loud.
Rooms are definitely 4 star quality. One cannot fault the rooms. They are very well decorated and kitted out. Air conditioning is a plus. A separate shower rather than one over the bath would be a bonus. Still, the water pressure was fantastic. It certainly wakes one up and the management must be complimented for the water pressure. Many hotels of a more recent vintage have poor pressure.
Leisure centre has a pool, steam room jaccuzi and gym. The gym is well equipped and staff are very helpful. The pool is not huge, but it is not advertised as huge either. The only thing that would prevent me giving the place a 4 star rating is the lack of a sauna. There is a steam room, but personally, I prefer the sauna. herself is a steam room fan though.
We overheard the party crowd the following morning, who were very satisfied with the food as well as the quality of the rooms.
There is secure parking provided. Its a bit hard to find it, but it is signposted. Macroom is a motorists nightmare for traffic jams, so if you miss the turn, you could be half an hour turning back to find it! As a guide, find the Post Office on Main Street, if coming from Cork, turn Right just at PO and if coming from Killarney, it's just before it.
As a half way house between Cork and Killarney, I'd certainly recommend it.
