We just stayed at the Court lodges on the Fota Island Resort for the Easter weekend. Our lodge was really lovely. Very modern and comfortable, immaculately clean. Everything you would need to stay home from home. The beds were really comfy just a tad small. The bathrooms could do with more shelves up high to keep toiletries away from small hands but on the positive side the showers were real powerful unlike some places you can stay.

The resort is also in a wonderful location. Just next door to the wildlife park, which is wonderful for kids. We also went for a lovely walk around the grounds of Fota house. We had a lovely lunch close by in Bramble lodge, which seemed to be a very popular spot.

The swimming pool was great. The changing area was well laid out. The shower cubicles were huge.

On the Sunday night my parents babysat and we enjoyed a lovely meal in the hotel restaurant.

Checkout time for the lodges is 10.30am, which is very early. Other than that we had a wonderful stay. I would definitely recommend and hope to visit again in the future.

We arrived to be met by concierge and sat at reception where we were checked in by Hazel. Alan, the porter then took luggage to room (120). Rooms are fantastic. Bathrooms are huge, about 5m x 5m!!! Massive power rain shower and bath.

Food in restaurant is excellent. However, although chateaubriand was on the menu as the April special, we were told that chef was not able to prepare it so it was not available (10th April). This was disappointing as I wanted to see if Fota's was as nice as my own! We then chose the table d'hote instead and this was excellent value. Desert was unbelievable (Chocolate tart). Breakfast is huge. The choice is massive and goes from catering for the healthy to the obese!!

Spa treatments are very good and good value.

All other facilities, pool, steam room, hydrotherapy suite and gym are of a very high standard, but pool is a bit on the small side if one wanted to swim lengths etc.

Only flaw was that the window cills are covered in metal and the rain was dripping on the cill which kept us awake the first night.

However, as ever, the test is would I return and the answer must be YES.....................and sooner than later!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Impressive and beautiful hotel, very friendly staff, nice and clean rooms with extra large beds, TV and tea/coffee facilities. Breakfast was amazing and most definetly THE BEST breakfast have had in any hotel so far (ireland or abroad). Didn't use spa but seeing hotels overall high quality I believe it should be nice. Although check the price list for spa before you go there. Very happy with experience and would definetely come back some time again. Highly recommended! I think this must be one of the greatest hotels in Ireland.

Room Tip: Ask for room with forest view, lots of hares to watch, real joy for kids.

Stayed 2 nights mid week during school holidays. Overall excellent hotel, very clean, best breakfast I've had in any hotel, spa was great. On the downside, 25 euro to use hydro therapy pool was very expensive and defiantly not worth it, also had to wait for staff to clear tables for breakfast.

Stayed in courseside lodges- Great option for families with a number of kids; resort has lots of space for children to play; tennis courts and golf acadamy a great asset; standard of lodges is high very clean and good quality furnishings; food in the hotel and golf club was good; a great base to explore parts of cork. Although we didn't use the spa looks to be of a very high quality. Note- childrens times in leisure centre are limitied to certain hours and while we were at the pool during these designated hours nearly half the pool was cleared by a manager to facilitate a training session for a hurling team in the pool. As the pool was busy with families at the time I though it to be in poor taste and judging by the reaction of parents most people there agreed.

Despite this I would recommend the resort lodges for a relaxing family getaway.
