“Overpriced for nothing too special”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Stayed here in January, found the staff quite rude. Room was freezing and the water in the bathroom sink ran brown. I know it was in the middle of a storm but no mention of a discount when I complained at the desk. Don't think I'd stay here again

Dear mumofonehappybaby

Thank you for your recent review of your stay with us in January which you posted on Tripadvisor recently. I am truly sorry that we did not meet with your expectations on yuor visit. Yes there have been a number of issues as a result of stoms over the winter and for this I sincerely apologise.

I have put in place some measures to track such incidents and hopefully we are armed to respond more positively now.

My thanks for bringing this to light

Yours sincerely

It almost feels as if we are part of the furniture here at this stage, but that's what keeps us coming back. There is so much that they do well here it is hard to know where to start. We stayed here for a week and were treated like family from the moment we arrived until the time we left. All staff were very attentive and nothing was too mush trouble.

Special mention goes to philly for sorting out some light bulb glitches in his usual cheery manner and to all the staff, great job once again and we'll be back again soon.

Dear aoreilly_13

Glad we kept up to your usual expectations guys and thanks for the mention on Tripadvisor. Return guests are the backbone of any business and I am glad that we are doing so well in your case. Maybe there is a point for suggesting loyaltycards :-)

Kind regards

A large fairly modern well appointed hotel right on the water front and just a few minutes from the centre of Bantry. Went for 4 night stay with my son to research our Irish roots. Staff were unfailingly cheerful and helpful. Room spacious and well equipped, comfortable beds, large luxurious bathroom. Breakfast was superb, plenty of choice and comfortable dinning room. Bar was the centre of activity at night, bar staff very chatty and live music good. Hugh car park under the hotel with direct access to the hotel. Would certainly go back if visiting the area again.

Room Tip: One facing Bantry Bay

Very nice hotel close to the city center and overlooking the bay. Friendly service, multi-lingual. Good breakfasts, tasty bacon. Rooms comfortable and clean. Sauna, pool and gym is open from 7am already. In the evenings, live music. Really no negatives.

Very comfortable room
Excellent friendly helpful staff but exceptionally drab dark interior decor does not uplift the spirits
Roadside location could be noisy at night
Good swimming pool and leisure centre
Good full Irish breakfast
Evening dinner menu did not attract us - we ate at the Waterfront nearby which was excellent
Potential noise from wedding parties well contained
Very handy for town centre
Basement car parking accessed by hotel lift very convenient

Dear Ralph D

Thank you for your review recently posted on Tripadvisor about your recent stay with us. I am currently undertaking a bit of renewal with regard to the interior lighting and a number of areas are now completed with dramatic uplifting effect which you will appreciate on your next visit.

I am glad that you found the team to be excellent & friendly and I am sure they will be pleased also. We look forward to you returning to see if the improvements are to your satisfaction.

Kind regards

We stayed here one night, and what a wonderful night it was. We had a room on the 4th floor which is the highest floor with a balcony with the most amazing view of the bay. Room was of the highest standard with a large bathroom and an extremely comfortable bed with tv with multiple channels. Free wifi in all areas as some of you will love. Had dinner in the restaurant downstairs, wonderful staff and food but some might find it had to pick from the menu. Spa facilities and leisure facilities available, we did both had a thoroughly enjoyed an hour massage and a quick dip in the pool. Breakfast the following morning was lovely very filling and plenty available. Staff through out the hotel were lovely. Only dislike was we had to take too lifts to get to our room nothing major though would get over it for every other good thing about this place.

Dear Mairead H

I am delighted with your very kind Tripadvisor review about your recent stay with us at the Maritime. Those views are spectacular......mind you they are a little daunting when the Wild Atlantic breaks forth in stormy fury, like last February. What I love about them is that they are ever changing.

I was very pleased that you enjoyed the quality of food and the high praise for the team which I will be passing on. I am sorry about the lifts but then we can never be perfect.

Kind regards
