Hotel was lovely bar one thing , we were given a room with faulty toilet pipes that kept us awake at night that led us to complain in the end. Staff member was accommodating but still think we should of been giving something else as compensation

Went to Bantry for staycation and stayed in Maritime Hotel. Very efficiently-run hotel with friendly and helpful management and staff.

Stayed in the Maritime Hotel in Bantry for my wedding anniversary and must say it was beautiful. The staff were so friendly and couldn't do enough for us. They even left a card in our room congratulating us on our anniversary, a very nice touch. The room was beautifully decorated, very comfortable with plenty of space and had every convenience we could need. We had a lovely meal in the Restaurant and a few welcome drinks in the bar. Overall I would highly recommend this hotel for either a romantic getaway or with kids as the pool is fabulous. It is also so convenient to the town of Bantry where you can take a little wander around the cafe's and shops or go to the pictures if you so wish. Unfortunately we had to leave early as one of our children got sick but we will definitely be returning to enjoy the delights of Bantry again soon. Thanks Maritime for a lovely stay, Catherine & Martin

Great location, perfect food, very friendly staff. I made mistake when booking - booked for 1 night starting on Friday but actually meant to arrive on Saturday - mixed up the dates - 100% my mistake - got the phone call on Saturday morning and was asked why didn't we arrive on Friday - nearly had a heart attack - we would have gone there not realizing that the room was booked for the night before. The receptionst told me that we could come anyway at no extra cost - all you'd want to hear but you couldn't complain being told that you have to pay again - so it was purely good wil and understandig - I wish all hotels were like this - Thanks again. Regardless my particular situation I'd recommend The Maritime to anyone and will definitely be back.

Enjoyed our stay at the Maritime Checkin went well Room clean and warm though the windows did rattle a fair bit with the wind but it added to the atmosphere Went for a swim and a steam which we really enjoyed Booked our meal for 8pm which was included in our package The restaurant was busy but not overly so We ordered a bottle of wine and twice the waitress told us she had to go downstairs to get it which would take her a couple of minutes Our starter came and it was good Eventually the wine came with the main course and was literally "plonked" on the table We called another waitress and asked could we have a wine cooler We were informed that they had only one and someone else was using it Unacceptable when paying for a decent bottle of wine for it to be served in such a way Other than that our main course was good We spent the night in the bar which had good entertainment and a nice atmosphere We slept well Breakfast the following morning was good with I must say pleasant efficient staff Overall a good break

Young scored 3 / 5 on 30/12/2012

We have stayed in Maritime Hotel for 1 night during Xmas break. Rooms were very nice, bed large and comfortable. Hotel has facilities like pool, gym, spa, bar and restaurant. Bar food was only ok, I had to send back bbq chicken wings because hey were covered in hard bread crumbs and uneatable. Pool was very nice, unusual design, long and wide. There were 2 saunas and jacuzzi. Pool area lacked chairs or any sort of sitting. Spa was only ok, placed far away from the pool. It did not have any relaxation area. Also there were no robes or slippers so to go back to the pool area we had to get dressed again. My facial was of very poor quality but massage was good. Hotel location is good with few restaurants and cinema within few minutes walk. We did not use hotel restaurant instead went to The Brick Oven nearby which was very nice and reasonable.

We recently stayed in the Maritime hotel in Bantry. We had booked 2 twin rooms for a girlie night away but when one couldn't make it we checked with the hotel on arrival if we could swap to a triple room instead. The hotel was very accomadating and moved us to a one bedroom suite with a lovely balcony and views over the bay. We used the pool and jacuzzi which was lovely. The rooms had everything we needed ... even a fridge to keep the champagne cool :-) As part of our package we had dinner included which was gorgeous. There was then live music in the bar which was fab. The breakfast the following morning was excellent and was followed by a lovely walk around bantry which was much needed after all the food. The rooms and corridors were well kept and all staff were lovely and friendly. All in all we had a great time in the Maritime. Thanks to all the staff.

Dolores scored 4 / 5 on 10/04/2012

Stayed in the Maritime Hotel for the Easter Bank Holiday week-end (3 nights). Found all the staff very friendly and helpful. Room was lovely. Breakfast was very good. Dinner menu changed slightly each evening, but the choice of starters could have been better (only one hot starter - soup). However, overall, I wouldn't fault the food and I most certainly would stay at the hotel again and would recommend it highly. Would also recommend the Spa treatments - both my husband and I availed of massages which were very good. Spa staff also were very friendly and good at their job.

Friends scored 5 / 5 on 09/04/2012

lovely hotel, lovely staff and a great place to escape to. Only negative point we had was a comment by one of the restaurant staff that we were on "the course dinner (included with the lidl offer) - same as everybody else!" - we felt this was uncalled for. otherwise, a great hotel

Roisin scored 5 / 5 on 08/03/2012

Had a fabulous time the best value ever. The rooms were only great! ! The only bad thing I could say is the entertainment in the bar did not entertain us so we went elsewhere to have a drink. I feel for such a standard of hotel the entertainment was very poor. Will return again and again to stay here

Kathy scored 4 / 5 on 29/02/2012

Very nice location and good service. However the evening meal I felt wasn't great. But then again I'm vegaterian so I only had one choice. A dish I would never normally go for with too much cheese and very stodgy.The portions were massive! I really could only eat a third of my plate.The staff were lovely and breakfast was super. The movie service in the room is a great idea and an excellent choice of wine.

Michael scored 5 / 5 on 28/02/2012

Reviewer82412806 scored 4 / 5 on 17/02/2012

Stayed here with my husband for three days from Feb 11th to the 14th. Room very nice, very clean and very comfortable. Staff excellent and efficient. Breakfast lovely and choices offered. Parking was free but the entrance to the car park a bit odd and the blue hoarding spoiled the view from the hotel. If this was cleaned up and rectified I would have no hesitation in giving five stars. I would recommend this hotel and I would stay again. Bantry is a lovely place and the people were very friendly. Co Wicklow Couple.

Ann scored 5 / 5 on 06/12/2011

This was absolutely fabulous value for money! The hotel was really lovely and right in the middle of everything in Bantry. The staff could not have been more friendly and nothing was too much bother for them. The pool and leisure centre are state of the art and again the staff were wonderful there too. The evening meal which was included in the price was to die for and there was even music in the bar afterwards. Just when we thought it could not get any better the breakfast surpassed all expectations. Anything you wanted to eat was there and as much of it as you could eat. I would highlky recommend this hotel and I cant wait for the next excuse to visit!

Enjoyed the stay. Nice hotel and nice staff, food was good (found the supplement on the steak a little too prices at €6.50 extra). Rooms were clean well laid out and had bottled water , tea/coffee making facilities and ironing board. Bathroom was very nice only thing was the bath towels were a little on the small size ( and I ain't overweight). But really nice spot and I would definitely stay there again. P.S. Found a lovely pub up the road called The Anchor. Lovely Guinness, warm fire and friendly .

Fergal scored 3 / 5 on 02/03/2011

The room and hotel itself were really lovely! However the food and service really let the hotel down. We were waiting way too long for surprisingly ordinary food, and any requests e.g. for butter, had to be repeated. This is disappointing. Even at value prices. Are the staff inexperienced or were too few staff on duty? Not sure I could recommend at current service levels. Regards.

The hotel was fantastic from the staff to the food.

However this would not stop me staying there again.

Geraldine scored 3 / 5 on 15/10/2010

Firstly i m not kocking the Hotel but just pointing out a few comments that can be improved.When we arrived the guy at the desk didn't greet us just saying im not sure how to check you in ,can you just wait for someone to come who can check in.When she came eventually she smiled and checked us in. We found the room clean and very modern and very fresh,When we arrived for evening meal a guy showed us to our table and didnt speak.For the Starter dont try the smoked chicken with fetta cheese very dissapointed 4 tiny wafer slices of chicken dropped on ordinary lettuce no dressing.Main course was very nice The hake we both had.In the morning we arrived down at 9.30 by then most of the hot food was gone and not stocked up again,and the 2 fried eggs that were left were stone cold,but the rest was tasty.On departure we checked out and the recptionist never asked us did we enjoy our stay or anything else.But beggars cant be choosers and it was a cheap break but wouldnt like to be paying top dollar for what we got anyway.Overall 6/10

John scored 5 / 5 on 06/08/2010

We booked the 2 night stay for last Monday and Tuesday evening. I had checked other reviews on trip advisor and other such sites before I arrived so I was not too sure what to expect as there had been contrasting views but wow was I impressed. The room was gorgeous, staff friendly and helpful and the food while it was not Michelin star it was perfect comfort food cooked to perfection and all seemed to be home made. We were absolutely thrilled with our stay and will definitely be returning. Some reviews had complained about the entrance to the car park being too tight and it was but come on that is a very very very small complaint. There was one issue with the water that was served at dinner, it came in a bottle to suggest it had been bottled water but it was simply tap water cooled in the fridge but again very very very small complaint- pool and sauna were also perfect! Thank you Lidl and thanks you The Maritime.

Enjoyed our stay very much, staff in both hotel and leisure centre were very friendly. They gave us a change of room without quibble, even though they were very busy with a wedding.

We got the most beautiful evening meal and a delicious breakfast the following morning. The room was beautiful overlooking the sea. I couldn't find any thing to critisise during our stay.

Bedrooms are very spacious and well appointed with all the necessary amenities. Luxurious & decadent decor. Top-notch staff, the breakfast & dinner at the hotel restaurant is amazingly good. I've never had soft-shelled crabs until that night and it was delicious! Leisure centre was fab as well. Highly recommended & I would definitely come back here again! Absolutely loved it!
