Reviews for `Clayton Hotel Silversprings`

Paul scored 4 / 5 on 03/09/2019

Lovely hotel check in quick and easy,Room was nice bed lovely and comfortable.staff were very helpful.would love to stay again.


Pat scored 4 / 5 on 16/07/2018

Very good location - we got the older wing of the hotel and the windows are not the best in terms of soundproofing, so could hear the traffic quite clearly. Great breakfast & friendly staff.


Niamh scored 5 / 5 on 06/11/2017

We have stayed here several times, staff are top notch, always efficient, friendly and helpful. Rooms are large and comfortable. Location is ideal for visiting further afield in County Cork and just a ten minute drive to the city centre. Breakfast is excellent, fantastic selection of food. One criticism might be that the bar and restaurant are not big enough for the volume of business they do


Mick scored 4 / 5 on 01/11/2017

A very enjoyable stay in this hotel, the bar menu is limited and the seating not suitable when trying to eat (sofas too deep and stools not comfortable). The breakfast menu was excellent with plenty of choice. The staff are excellent and really helpful, the door card kept deactivating itself which was really annoying (up and down lifts). Location of the hotel is excellent and it's a hotel I would go back to and recommend to friends.


Paul scored 4 / 5 on 31/10/2017

Just back from a two day break in Cork at the Clayton Hotel Silversprings. The hotel location is excellent, easy to get to from the M8 and on a couple of minutes drive to St Pauls street in the city centre. The staff were very helpful with directions to sights around the city and offered very friendly service. The rooms were clean, confortable and nicely decorated with Iron, Ironing board and tea/coffee making facilities. We ate in the bar one night and the restuarant on another. The food was good, but to be very critical I thought the menu a little limited. Overall, I would recommend this hotel to a friend.


Angela scored 4 / 5 on 15/07/2017

The hotel was ideal to stay in while attending a concert in the marquee as they provided a bus to and from there also staff very friendly and hotel clean and comfortable would recommend this to anyone

Marian scored 3 / 5 on 08/11/2016

I had previously stayed in the Silversprings hotel on numerous occasions in the past number of years and found the hotel to be of 5-star quality. However, on my recent visit to the now named Clayton-Silversprings- I thought that it lacked the 5 star qualities I was used to: ie cleaniness of toilets both in the bedroom and the main toilets on ground floor. I met a number of staff who were very friendly but found some lacking in customer service (both in reception and bar food areas). I will return as the food was lovely and the value of price I paid was GREAT.


Dolores scored 5 / 5 on 29/10/2016

My husband and i stayed in tbe Clayton very recently and found the whole experience absolutely wonderful. The reception staff couldnt have been more welcoming and friendly. They upgraded us to a more luxurious room when we arrived as it was my husband's birthday -very thoughtful and kind of them. We had a lovely evening meal in the bar area and got fantastic service-thanks to all the various staff. would highly recommend this hotel to anybody. 5 star

Stayed here the 23rd September (received a generous upgrade to a suite)... The suite was fabulous (Tivoli Suite), with generous space size. Our stay was really good and too short (would have liked to stay longer !!!). The hotel is currently being upgraded and has new rooms for an extra €25 per night !

Very friendly welcome on arrival, we found the staff very helpful and friendly. would stay again


Ann scored 3 / 5 on 27/04/2016

We had a group of four adults staying overnight. We would recommend the hotel for value, friendliness and the standard of food. Some small suggestions which would have added to the stay are: The receptionsist was very busy and under pressure dealing with personal customers while the phone continually rang. It was annoying to be continually interrupted when checking in as answering the phone took priority. The rooms were very warm and there was no access to the radiator to lower the temperature. It was not obvious beforehand that the swimming pool was a ten minute walk away. Consider making the bar menu available in the restaurant as it was more extensive than the restaurant menu. Overall though, good service and friendly staff.


Amanda scored 3 / 5 on 12/04/2016

Very pleasantly surprised. Very good value for two nights with breakfast and dinner provided. The breakfast could have done with being presented a little better. A lot of the food was swimming in grease but, nonetheless, we enjoyed it. The dinner in the restaurant the first night was nice and all four of us were happy with what we got. On the second night we used our dinner voucher in the bar. I ordered the stir fry. It was so loaded with salt that it was completely inedible which was very disappointing. The rooms (we had connection twin rooms) were very nice, clean, very warm. No complaints there and the young man who came to do housekeeping was very friendly and thorough. All staff were exceptionally friendly and accommodating. Overall, we really enjoyed our experience and would definitely return for another visit (but wouldn't order the stir fry)


Brian scored 1 / 5 on 06/04/2016

Very dissapointed...My husband has been very unwell and we were looking forward to a nice relaxing night away....I went to have a nice bath before dinner but water wasnt hot...contacted reception and someone came to have a look and we were told we may have to change to a different room...After waiting some time we were again moved to a different room but as we entered we felt it very cold...The porter that helped us move went to the heating settings and assured us that we would have heat in while ...We had our bath and went dwn for dinner.....Again another disaster , waited well over an hour to get our food which was very dissapointing. My steak was cremated and my husbands order was not what we asked for...Our whole night from start to finish was ruined... What was supposed to be a nice night away was anything BUT!!!! And to top it all off we went back to a freezing cold room...NO HEATING!!!! As i said earlier my husband has had very bad health and he was cold all night..... not the nice romantic night away we had planned....VERY VERY DISSAPOINTED ...

Nora scored 3 / 5 on 08/03/2016

Excellent food & accommodation, staff friendly but a little chaotic. Leisure centre up the hill very old fashioned, water in pool was cold & staff there obnoxious.


Reviewer56764226 scored 3 / 5 on 08/03/2016

Stayed here on Saturday 05th March and received a great welcome when checking in, We got a family room on the 2nd floor and the room was very clean and loads of space. There was a generator in use outside the back of the hotel which was very loud and when i enquired in reception was told it would be switched off at 22:15 for the night. Only other fault i would have would be the leisure centre as it is not actually in the hotel. As it is a good 10 mins walk up a very steep hill and it was raining we had to leave the hotel and drive up to the leisure centre. Overall it is a very nice and relaxing hotel to stay in.


Colin scored 3 / 5 on 24/02/2016

The hotel was fine but the staff could do with lessons in manners. I would definitely eat out rather than get the evening meal in future especially where there are childrens meals. They looked like they were dipped in a deep fat fryer and thrown out. Children could not eat what was served up. Adult meals 2 out of 10. The facility is good other than the food and staff..


Bridewell scored 5 / 5 on 23/02/2016

A beautiful hotel we stayed two nights and opted for an upgrade to a suite on the second night absolutely gorgeous could highly recommend it . The staff on reception were very pleaasant and welcoming which was more than I could say for the staff in the breakfast room. We came down at 10.20 my husband had porridge and after finishing that he went up for a cooked breakfast to find the hot food taken away he asked one of the girls who said no it was gone this was at 10.35 really bad form, I would expect them to llook at the people who were dining to see if they were finished, I heard a few more people complaining about this also. That was annoying but the room and staff on reception made up for it. The staff in the dining room could do with few lessons in good manners and dealing with people.


Karen scored 4 / 5 on 23/02/2016

We stayed in the family room at the Clayton Silver Springs on an overnight recently and would definitely recommend it. The staff we very friendly and accommodating. We travelled with two older children and of course there was conflict between them over sharing the double bed! It had been suggested to me at reception if there was an issue there would be no problem in supplying a fold out bed. There was plenty of room to add the fold out bed and the room was comfortable clean and roomy! The beds and pillows were also exceptionally comfortable and I'm fussy! Food was fab and we were only sad it was for one night only. Only drawback is having the leisure centre outside the hotel but not a serious problem.


Breda scored 5 / 5 on 23/02/2016

Lovely comfortable hotel. Great food, nice atmosphere. Really enjoyed my stay. Staff very courteous and helpful.


Bridget scored 5 / 5 on 21/02/2016

Hi we had a fantastic time lovely food and lovely staff would definitely go back loved the dinners at night and a great atmosphere with loads of people around and a 5:star rating


John scored 3 / 5 on 21/02/2016

Hotel was very nice, a bit of refurb needed in hallways and stairwells, but can't really recommend if going with young kids as the windows are unsafe. Can't relax knowing the bedroom windows at probably less than 1m high open fully and easily (a toddler could easily open them, and this in a family room) with high drop (6 floors of rooms). What's the point of going to a hotel if you can't relax? Also room we had was very noisey and cold due draught from gap in window when closed (busy road, railway, port outside). Bar and food was very nice. Play area for kids in reception alone would bring me back with family (brilliant idea), as would secure playground for kids. Staff really friendly. Would go back with family if I knew the windows were sorted.


J scored 5 / 5 on 21/02/2016

We booked to stay at the Silver Springs for four days to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary and my wife's birthday. We were upgraded to a spacious and well equipped suite. The room was quite exceptional although we had a couple of issues. The safe stopped working and we couldn't access out items. Hotel responded within twenty minutes and opened it and after we went out replaced the safe with a working replacement. Great! The refrigerator did not work and although reported on the first morning was not attended to during our four days. As we only had some water in it and a complimentary fruit gift this was not s major problem. Overall great room experience. The Watermarq restaurant was closed for dinner during our entire trip although the website indicated it was open for three of our four night stay. This was a bit problematic as dinner was in the bar and on occasion there was no space, no space reserved for diners who had paid for dinner in advance. Bar service was slow at times. On one night there was only standing room in the bar areas. The quality of the food was truly excellent and it was the same food that would have been available in the main restaurant. Breakfast was at a high standard. Nitpicking one would expect some smoked salmon to be available. Although staff service was patchy at times and the dining areas problematic through a level of insufficient planning the staff listened to ones legitimate concerns and did try and help. Car parking at times was challenging. Overall I have given a five star rating because of the positive responses to guests queries and concerns and the application of a high level of customer care. Planning could be improved somewhat. Highly recommended.


Jacqueline scored 2 / 5 on 01/01/2016

The star rating is a little difficult for me between 2 and 3 but if you said would I stay there again, it would be no. I mentioned the broken window and television problem at reception and there was no quibble and a gratuity was given which was appreciated I didn't mention any of the below points at reception but as you have asked for a survey I mention them now. I was surprised the hotel had a 4 star rating - decor somewhat shabby frayed carpets and a musty damp smell as if there had been a leak in the corridors. The stay was disappointing for the following reasons:- Short staffed which impacted in the following ways: Dinner, we had to wait 55 minutes before our food arrived, extra sauce took at least 10 - 15 mins to arrive that again, but was requested at order. In all it was two hours before dessert was finished and we had planned to go out, which by then we could not go. The waitress who served us was lovely and we enjoyed the meal. I've never experienced a breakfast like it in a hotel, due to staff shortage. We arrived to breakfast at 10am. There were no sausages or fried eggs and we had to go back up to get those when they were ready, the juice completely ran out. But the main problem was, there was no clean table to sit at. A girl sent us away from a table she was clearing and saw us go to another table nearby, but instead of coming over to us to clear that table, she went to the other side of the room to clear another table. She just left us standing beside 3 dirty tables and had no intention of speaking with us again or following up with us. When I went over to her to ask if she could clear the table (we were all standing around), she said "you can sit at this one when I've cleared it". And then to top it all she never asked us if we wanted tea and toast and never came near us again to ask it, but did look at us several times (quite clearly) as she went in and out of the kitchen. She was clearly ticked off due to being short staffed. Another lovely girl got tea and toast for us after a while, when we went over and asked her for some. I hate to personalise it to one girl because I work in the service industry and know how difficult it can be. But to be left standing beside 3 dirty tables and for her to then say you can sit here when I'm ready( more or less). I could sense her mood when she sent us away from the first table and I actually didn't want to go back over to her but at that point there was no one else on the floor. I did look for a damp cloth and a tray (but there weren't any trays) to clear the table myself. The staff shortage was not her fault so she can't solve that for you.

We got a room that was the smallest room I have ever stayed in. There was damp patches all over the ceiling. Breakfast was the worst I have ever had in a hotel. Staff not helpful. Waitress at breakfast had no interest in serving us even though restaurant was empty. Very disappointing.

Very disappointed with hotel not a hotel for kids leisure centre swimming pool a disaster the pool not suitable for kids water was cold too deep for young kids and nothing there to have fun with its like an old wear house and not that clean either so def not 4 star more like 1 star and that's for the nice staff at desk hotel itself was ok food was grand room ok best thing again was staff nice and friendly not a very fussy person but would not be going back

Lovely room with view as requested. Exceptional value. Amanda was very facilitating at dinner. Nothing was a problem. Highly recommend Lidl breaks.Breakfast was very good for a buffet and plenty fresh squeezed juice.. overall fantastic experience.


Dissapointed scored 5 / 5 on 01/10/2015

Have always enjoyed our breaks with Silver Springs before, this time upon registering was informed that restaurant was closed for Sunday and Monday evening. As we had booked for evening meals for both nights, our only other option was to drive into Cork City ( which would have been awkward as my husband now has very reduced mobility) or avail of the bar menu. As this was a special anniversary it was a disappointment that could have been avoided as we would have changed days of stay if we had been advised prior to arrival. Have stayed in Silver Springs many times over the years and have always enjoyed stay before now.


Sarah scored 4 / 5 on 29/09/2015

Tracey scored 2 / 5 on 02/09/2015

Check in was easy, friendly front of house staff. The room was nice, clean and spacious. The meal was a disaster, we received no starter or food apart from my daughters soup after an hour. Then after an hour and twenty minutes we finally got our main course, the starter never came. When we complained we were told there was not enough staff on. To be honest having worked in the catering industry myself for a number of years, that is not the customers problem or concern and they do not need to hear about internal processes such as staff rotas. We did receive a free drink each and dessert for my daughter. But the overall service on the night was not up to standard. We had to get clean cups from another table and some of the cutlery was dirty. When the chips came they were re-heated and only we were so hungry at this point we would have left. We did request a quiet room on our booking form. But from 2am till well after 3am we had wedding guests walking up and down the corridor. Twice we had to go outside and ask them to move and and keep the noise down. One group actually stood outside singing a chorus of up town funk. We also had a grown man knocking at our door at 4 am. Knowing we were not with the wedding party, I am baffled as to why we were put on the corridor where the exited from their venue, especially since we had a child and requested a quiet room.


Cmf scored 3 / 5 on 12/07/2015

The staff were nice. We had a lovely big family room. The only down side was the poor choice on the summer menu I was in the restaurant for just less than an hour and in that time 7 people walked out and into the bar for food. The next day I asked at reception if I could eat in the bar and that was no problem. The food was Fab with generous portions and a great atmosphere so much better and nicer than the restaurant.

Kazza scored 2 / 5 on 27/04/2015

Booked a triple room for 3 adults. The room was actually a double room with a camp bed stuck in the corner. Not suitable for an adult and very uncomfortable. The room was also extremely hot at night and due to roadside location you could not open the window. Asked to be moved but the hotel was booked out. Food in the restaurant was delicious though.


Melissa scored 3 / 5 on 14/04/2015

This is a really nice hotel. Very up to date. Reception staff were very professional and had excellent manners I wish I could say the same for the bar staff. We waited over 20 minutes for someone to take our food order in the bar ( which I had to get up and ask them do take it). The food took over 40 mins to be served (only a steak sandwich and a curry) Others ordered after us but had their food before us (some order steak) . The food was very good when it did finally arrive. The rooms and bathrooms are fabulous and very clean. I have booked my parents in to this hotel many times and have used it myself for business but this was the first time I booked it with booking.com (not sure if that had am impact on their behaviours towards us)

Very nice hotel to stay in. We had our wedding there and had a large number our guests staying in the hotel afterwards, and any of them we spoke (or overheard people say) to had nothing but good things to say about the place. The staff are very pleasant to deal with, food was great, excellent gym and pool setup (there's just a bit of a walk up a hill to get there but you could always make that part if your workout). Highly recommended.

Nigel scored 4 / 5 on 19/04/2014

We had 3 nights -2 adults and one 8year old. The room was very good and spacious and recently done up- very clean with good bathroom and shower. The first night we couldn't figure how to turn off the heating and left the windows open. It's noisy from the nearby main road. The leisure centre has an excellent big swimming pool. It's up a very steep hill in the grounds of the hotel and you need to drive up to it. The staff were helpful and pleasant. More of a business hotel than a family hotel but very convenient for Cork city and Kinsale / Fota wildlife parks which is what we wanted. The breakfasts were the usual Irish buffet and good. The meal we had was not good - which was in the bar and the restaurant was closed on Monday night. Loads of good places to eat in Kinsale/Cork.


Reviewer19520848 scored 4 / 5 on 28/03/2014

Staff very friendly and helpful. One evening meal we had was excellent. Breakfast excellent too. Disappointed to discover when we arrived on Sunday that restaurant was not opened Sunday or Monday (would have appreciated knowing this beforehand!). Room clean. Had to tweak heating to turn it on. Overall would give this hotel and its facilities 3 start rating.


Amya scored 4 / 5 on 20/03/2014

Stayed here over the Paddys bank holiday weekend and thought the hotel was gorgeous. The room was spotless and bright and all modern furnishings. Breakfast was included and that was lovely too. Friendly staff overall warm atmosphere. Only thing was the annoying walk out to the 'leisure center/spa' which was basically a public swimming pool and very grubby and outdated. However all in all a lovely stay and would definitely go back again!

Stayed for 2 nights/ B&B/1 evening meal package. Overall dissapointed with hotel. 1. Evening meal wasn't particular good. Breakfast is basic enough. 2. Announcements over the PA system in the restuarant was more akin to an Airport that a restuarant. 3. The swimming pool was not part of the hotel at all and a 5-10 min walk away. 4. Bedroom was acceptable, bathroom was smaller than expected. Finally the staff were very good and helpful.

It was a nice break in Cork. The hotel has very good facility to accommodate people. Very kind and helpful people working up there!!! Will give a few comments: 1. The arm chairs were wet, you can't sit on them. 2. The food on our dinner were over salted and wasn't really tasteful. Need defenetly to improve.


Aidan scored 3 / 5 on 02/01/2014

We stayed for 2 nights on a B&B & evening meal package in this hotel. The room was adequate, clean with a spacious bathroom. Breakfast was average and staff seemed a little scarce. However the most infuriating situation was that the restaurant did not open on either night of our stay between Christmas and new year leaving guests to eat dinner in a lounge cum reception area with inadequate seating. One would expect that at this busy time of year their main restaurant would be open in the evening time. If felt sorry for the lounge staff who couldn't do anything but apologise to disgruntled guests. This hotel has potential but needs better preparation for busy times of the year.

Stayed here on Saturday night and was very happy with my stay. After returning from the city on Saturday we went into the bar for a night cap and the band playing in the bar were so good. We stayed over an hour until they finished for the night and it ended off a really nice evening. A nice hotel out of the city a little but suited our needs exactly.

Stayed for 3 nights dinner B & B with our two children who are aged 2 & 3 and really enjoyed our stay. Rooms very clean & spacious, we had a family room. Food was excellent & staff were extremely friendly and helpful. There was a childrens play room which kept kids entertained in the evenings which meant that you could relax but also keep an eye on them at all times. Would highly recommend this hotel to families and will definitely stay again.

Karen scored 3 / 5 on 18/07/2013

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights on a dinner (2 course), B & B package. The meal was to include tea or coffee but we were told that this was an extra course so we could not have it unless we payed for it !! (even though it states B & B, 2 course meal and tea or coffee). On the 3rd night of our stay we were then told the menu had changed and there would be a supplement charged with some of the dishes. It wasn't an issue but really they should have stated it at the beginning of our stay and not half way through. It was also very hard to actually enjoy the food as there was a door at the side of the bar left open and the seating area was full of flies. It was so bad on one occasion that I held on to the menu to try and keep them off our food. When I pointed this out to the waiter that was serving us he just said 'yeah but sure there is nothing we can do about it' !! We ate in our room or the restaurant after that. This was our 2nd time staying for a 5 night break here and I really did feel this time it was all about what they could add on to your bill which I found disappointing. Obviously when you are staying in a hotel for 5 nights you are spending quite a bit of money there and in the area. The majority of the staff at the hotel were very polite, helpful and pleasant and the hotel itself is very clean and comfortable. If we are visiting the area again I would probably try another hotel next time but we would stay here again in the future.

The receptionist who checked us could have done with a personality. Despite our best efforts Elma as that was her name made no attempt to interact with us or to reply to the lines we fed her. Watch out in case you happen to be met by her at some stage in the future. Our room was very well appointed, it had everything we could have wished for except bathrobes. We mentioned that lack on the comment card we completed for the hotel itself. Dinner was delicious and the staff were very attentative. Breakfast was also a treat, the staff who this time were Irish not that that made any difference could'nt have been more helpful and engaged in the type of banter we would have liked from the receptionist! As we have stayed in the Silver Springs and knew what we would experience, we would and will definately return, especially on a Lidl hotel break! Regards, Anthony

Bedroom very comfortable however mould was growing around the window. Bathroom decor very dated. Cold tap did not work in bathroom sink. I ate bar food during the afternoon. I ordered a toasted special on brown bread however i got it on white bread. I was so hungry I just ate it. Chips that accompanied the sandwich were only average. No very crispy. The Guinness was quiet stale. Watched the Ireland rugby match in bar. Surround sounds system was very good. The leisure centre was basic and dated and could do with some maintenance especially in the area of the Jacuzzi. Our evening meal in the restaurant was lovely and service was very good. Breakfast was average. Black pudding had a strange after taste and beans were quiet hard. Rashers looked horrible and very fatty and did not get any. The individual jams on the table were a very nice touch.

the hotel and meals were fine but the leisure club was a big dissapointment. I asked hotel staff to give me a voucher for leisure club at 7.00am and set out walking up the eerie road that led to leisure club no one told me it was so far I got scared and turned back as I was on my own so I ended not having any swim. I cant believe that the staff left me off on my own up there. You would need a car to get there and it was certainly no place for a woman to be. Was very dissapointed. I handed back my towel and voucher and the girl at the reception didn't even appologise. It is misleading advertisment to say they have a leisure club when it is so far from hotel. Also the car parking is very tight and very hard to manover a car in and out of.

On calling reception, a young lad made a couple of attempts to get the heat on but to no avail and after another phone call we were given another room which was gorgeous and warm and we were very happy that our problem had been rectified.

After having a very bad stay at the sliver springs hotel last year i decided to go back this year and give it another chance seeming as i had been promised a stay to remember this time around, unfortunatly myself and my sister had a horrible stay again,we had been promised an upgraded room because of the nightmare stay last year so when we arrived at reception i asked the girl was the room upgraded and she said yes,when we went to our room we discovered the room was no upgrade just simply a family room with a thrown in bowl of fruit, i decided to ring reception as i wasnt happy about the promise of a nice room and then to get thrown into a family room,the receptionist told me they had us booked for a nice room but they got a booking for the same room and then had to change our room but agreed to change the room to a better room which they had a cancellation for,so we went to the bar for lunch while we were waiting for our room to be ready,lunch at the bar was fantastic,after waiting around for ages we decided to ask again at reception was the room ready to discover it had been ready ages just the receptionist that had said she would follow us into the bar with the key was now gone home, so its now gone 4.30 and finally we are in our room and the room is lovely, when we went down to the restuarant for dinner that evening we were served dry horrible chicken and bacon for starters and the main course was no better the worst meal we had ever been served in our life, couldnt believe how bad the food was especially when lunch had been so nice To top it all off the next morning we went down for breakfast and the girl who was taking the room numbers seated us,everything was fine when suddenly she arrived at our table and was so rude,she wanted to know ''our real room number'' and was so rude the way she spoke to us it was like we had walked in off the street and were getting a free breakfast the way she was going on, we had given the wrong room number by mistake we gave the first room number we were in instead of the upgraded one,she stormed off after i showed her our room key card and did not offer tea or coffee, we were so anoyed and just left, i didnt complain when leaving the hotel because there was no point waste of time, i will never be back there again.

Stayed here for two days, our room was on the top floor and we had a lovely scenic view. On our way up the steps to the hotel I noticed a broken glass outside the restaurant and when leaving two days later it was still there. Had dinner included for one night in the hotel and had a large bottle of water with it. On our way out I was followed up the steps and asked to return to the grim faced guy at front of house to pay for my bottle of water. I expected any extras to be added to my bill, so i felt like a naughty schoolboy trying to nick something from a shop. Despite that the rest of the staff were lovely the food was nice, the room was lovely and i would stay there again.

This is my forth time staying at the silver springs and iv loved it there,but this time a diidnt.The hotel room was freezing all the time. For a 4 star hotel you would expect alot better. We complained on the first day and the staff were very helpful. they turned up the heating but thats on a timer,and the rad was covered so hardly any heat came out.On the second night no heating came on at all in the day or the evening. We complained again at 10pm and by 10.45pm nobody arrived. We had or 3 year old with us so we needed to get her to bed. We phoned again and said we were still waiting and she said ( ohh sorry, has nobody called yet???) i told her to forget about it, that it was getting late and we needed to put the child to bed and not to send anybody up as it was now 11pm.Its the coldest hotel iv ever stayed in. When we cheaked out,we werent even asked,did you enjoy your stay and was everything ok???Very dissapointing.My daughter ended up with a nasty chesty cough as the room was so cold. Not good enough for a four ****

Vadim scored 2 / 5 on 17/09/2011

This wasn't the best hotel experience in my life at all... If not to say more.. We have been treated as if we "robbed" the place. Reception had checked our booking form several times before checking us in, and then they were looking at it over and over again, whenever we were going into the restaurant for dinner, etc. (as if they couldn't believe that the hotel was offering such a deal), making us feel uncomfortable. The first night in the restaurant wasn't too bad. The hotel staff in general is quite helpful. However, on the second night, the supervisor did not even bring the water to our table, she has not checked if we were ok; moreover in front of all the guests sitting in the restaurant at the time she reiterated that our rate would only include the meal for two, children’s meals are not included, and that we have to pay for the drinks separately. We said, - it was fine, of course we knew what the conditions of the offer were, and that kids meals were not included, and that, obviously, we would have to pay for our drinks.. It wasn’t nice at all from her side speaking it all out loud in front of the other guests.. At the same time she approached other “more important tables� at least twice each during the evening, asking if the guests were ok and if they had everything they needed (needless to repeat myself that we weren’t offered even a jug of water!!).. So, while the food was great, and some members of the staff were particularly nice and helpful, this kind of “second class� citizens’ treatment towards us killed the whole experience…

The food was excellent and the staff were very nice all round. The downfalls was the noise from the road outside in the morning as we had to leave the bedroom window open due to the heat during the night as there was no airconditioning. this wouldn't stop me returning again though as we all really enjoyed the stay and it was very suitable for families with kids!

We stayed here for 2 nights .Room was clean but for four of us not very spacious .Bathroom very dated .shower difficult to work ,bath very slippy ,antislip mat was hidden away with the sign saying please use hidden under it !.Staff were friendly .Breakfast was excellent .while the hotel states the leisure centre is on site it isnt !.I asked could I walk to it and was told yes even though i had 2 children with me .It is up a very steep hill and a good 10 min walk .The leisure center is dated .only 1 family changing room and no shower .More worrying was on check out They tried to charge me a higher rate per night .even taking into account the charge for breakfast for children ,it was more then that .The hotel is on the out skirts of cork so a car is necessary .This is not a four star hotel

I have been to several hotels through Lidl Breaks and i would not recommend the Silver Springs. Did not find the reception staff friendly, room was small and not very clean. I would not return to that hotel again.

Ann scored 4 / 5 on 12/04/2011

Had a lovely time at this hotel, staff very pleasant and courteous, bar food was excellent and service was prompt. The Source leisure centre was great, we spent a few hours there on both days of our stay. The rooms were good, if a little too warm, but it was up to us to turn the heating down if wished, only complaint was that the pillows were too firm for my liking!


Una scored 5 / 5 on 11/04/2011

My husband and I along with other guests stayed in the Silver Springs Hotel last weekend after a family wedding. I must say, it ticked all the boxes. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and suprisingly quiet, consideriing its proximity to the main road. The staff are friendly and approachable. As regards value for money, again, ticked the box! I would definitely stay here again.

Anita scored 5 / 5 on 05/04/2011

Had a great stay at the sliver springs hotel recently, staff were great and food in the resturant was of an execellent standard, Hotel was quiet full and so there was a good flow of people around, there was a great band playing on the saturday night which i enjoyed and the over all experience was very good compared to some other hotels i have stayed at in Cork, Breakfast was lovely and they had a gerat selection of things to suit everyone, i would recomend this hotel to anyone looking for a relaxing break but i didnt see any children around so i wouldnt reomend it for children.

Vivienne scored 5 / 5 on 14/03/2011

We enjoyed our stay very much at the Silver springs hotel. The room and the dinner were excellent especially the service in the dining room. We would recommend this hotel. The only thing was that we were charged for the full amount including the deposit of 11.86e which we had already paid. The bill came to 108e which was 98e plus 10e for 2 glasses of wine. We are contacting the hotel to the rectify this. It could be because we booked with one credit card and paid the hotel with a different one.


Nicola scored 5 / 5 on 08/03/2011

I wasn't happy with the fact that the leisure centre is in a seperate building to the hotel. we had young children and as it was up a very steep hill we had to drive to it. The pool itself was freezing and the changing rooms were not very clean. The bar on Saturday night was completly reserved for a party and we had no where it sit for a drink so we had to go up to our room. The chef at the counter for breakfast was extremly rude and not a bit helpful.


Natalie scored 4 / 5 on 22/02/2011

Great hotel at a great price. Convenient location, plenty of parking, nice rooms, music in the bar & a great breakfast. 5/5 for value!


John scored 4 / 5 on 15/02/2011

We enjoyed our stay recently at this hotel. The breakfast was good and had a lot of choice. We had the set dinner here and loved the chicken dish. Would stay at this hotel again. The only negative point is that the leisure centre is not in the hotel and is a 10 minute walk away.


Clare scored 5 / 5 on 15/02/2011

I rate this hotel 5 star, it was comfortable and beautiful all at the same time, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the food was second to none. The freedom for the kids in hotel was great and the family room size was perfect. Would definetly recommend this hotel to any family looking for a break away. The leuiure centre is just a short walk away and very clean and well run. The value of the break was outstanding with Lidl Family of 5 from Clonmel.

Patricia scored 4 / 5 on 06/12/2010

We had a very enjoyable stay at the Silver Springs Hotel. Food was excellent especially the breakfasts, staff were friendly and helpful. The only drawback was that we were celebrating our anniversary and the dining room is closed Sundays & Mondays which we were not told about until we arrived.

The hotel was well worth the price, rooms were gorgeous, food was lovely and staff very friendly! The only draw back was that the hotel is a little bit out of the town %u20AC10 in a taxi every time, but saying that, taxis were easy to get and all the drivers were lovely and really helpful. Would definitely go back!

Lisa scored 5 / 5 on 15/09/2010

This was my 2nd visit to the hotel with a lidl break and I was disappointed this time. I stayed on a Sunday night and the restaurant was closed and dinner was the BAR menu, we could not get veg or potatoes with our meal only fries and salad. We sat in the bar and had to bend over a small table to eat our dinner. The room was very nice and spacious and the staff were friendly and professional. I would not stay again on a Sunday night.

Nicky scored 5 / 5 on 08/09/2010

The Hotel was lovely, the reception staff were excellent and very friendly. Rooms a little shabby though. Food excellent only downside was that the staff were at great pains to enphasise that we were staying on a LIdl break. Leisure centre was quite a walk up a steep hill away from the hotel - would have been nice to have been informed about before hand.


Banana scored 4 / 5 on 07/09/2010

Our stay at the hotel was great. Food and accomodation were very good. Didnt get to leisure centre at all but i believe it was in a seperate building away from hotel so that would of been a bit of a disapointment. Otherwise i would definitely recommend hotel for food, accomodation and location.. All excellend.

i would rate the hotel with four stars, the hotel room was very comfortable and clean, the staff were very courteous and friendly. overall i had no problems with the hotel, as for the value for money aspect, it definitely was and it was a great plus that you didnt have to collect so called points to use the breaks. it makes someone more willing to use the website again and t


Karen scored 5 / 5 on 03/08/2010

We had a lovely stay in the Hotel. The location was perfect for our needs (visited Fota 1 day and the city the next day). The staff were very friendly and the family room was spacious with all our requirements. We visited the leisure centre on the 2nd day which was nice, the only drawback was that although it is on the grounds of the hotel, we had to drive to it as it's a long walk up a big hill and not suitable for children. Good value for money, breakfast super with all requirements for adults & children. Overall, an enjoyable stay and I would stay tehre again, Thanks, Karen


Burkeys scored 5 / 5 on 02/08/2010

We stayed here in July and I have to say it was a wonderful stay. The hotel is very modern, the staff are extremely helpful, the food was magnificent and the leisure facilities were second to none. Couple that with the incredible Lidl value deal and the proximinty to Fota and Cobh and I can assure you I will be going back. Go for this deal as I don't know how long you will get value like this !!!!

Dodi scored 5 / 5 on 12/07/2010

Had a brilliant weekend in Silversprings in Cork. It is a lively hotel and the weekend we stayed there were a number of functions - undoubtedly a popular hotel. Its proximity to Cork City and the ample parking also add to its allure. The special dinner menu which is available for the Lidl value break is good - although you get the feeling that the hotel waiting staff do not pay as much attention to you if you avail of this option meal and give more attention to those guests who have ordered from the a la carte. Having said that the Lidl offer and the facilities of the hotel make the break unquestionably good value.


Maggie scored 4 / 5 on 08/07/2010

on arrival to hotel, i had booked a double room, however when we checked in we were given a twin room, complained a reception and was send to the 6th floor to a double room, when we entered this floor there was a bad smell of mould and the room was stinking of cigerette smoke, so we complained a second time. we were than upgraded to the suite room which was beautiful.. i found the staff to be very helpful and accomadating.. the food was beautiful also... enjoyed our stay eventually...


Lisa scored 3 / 5 on 08/07/2010

We enjoyed our stay in the hotel the staff,rooms and breakfast were a high standard. The leisure center was a drive away as we have small children, the pool etc was clean but very dated the surrounding pool area was not very pleasant. On checking out we were asked to pay an extra suppliment for our childrens breakfast although all that they ate were the cereals. It was a good base for the Cork area Fota etc.

Josie scored 4 / 5 on 05/07/2010

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Silver Springs Hotel. The accommodation was very good and we could not find fault with the choice of food. The staff, without exception, were very friendly and efficient. We spent our days in Cork city and the evenings in the hotel itself for a quiet drink. The only negative for us was the distance from the hotel to the Leisure Centre for swimming - it was quite a walk up a very steep hill, although technically still on the grounds of the hotel.

The room is quite old..needs a renovation especially the toilet...I'm a traveler myself I've been to other countries and for a 4star hotel Silver Springs Moran Hotel doesn't impress me. T^he food was delicious and staff members are very accommodating & pleasant.


Colette scored 5 / 5 on 29/06/2010

Rooms were comfortable and staff were very pleasant and helpful. Food was very disappointing. We stayed Sunday and Monday night and the restaurant wasnt open so we had to make do with the bar food. There was a very limited choice available with many items apparently 'sold out' even though we were in there for dinner at 6.30pm.

Christopher scored 4 / 5 on 29/06/2010

We were a bit worried on arrival as the hotel doesn't look pleasant from the outside, but once we got inside our worries eased. Very clean hotel, rooms were adequate and food was top notch. We had the car with us and it was about 10 mins drive to Blarney Castle and also 10 mins to Fota Wildlife Park it was about 5 mins from the city centre so all in all the hotel is in a good location. I will be returning to this hotel if i ever return to Cork :-)


Triona scored 4 / 5 on 29/06/2010

We really enjoyed our stay here at the Silversprings Hotel - our family room was of generous proportions and the food was excellent, really good value. The kids had a lot of fun, especially at the pool, which is a steep uphill walk/drive from the hotel and operated separately. This hotel is in a great location, affording fabulous views over the port. However, the downside of this was the number of steps up and down to the carparks, up to the hotel, down to the restaurant... my mother, for whom steps are difficult, found this a challenge. Overall though, I would definitely return.


Ann scored 5 / 5 on 29/06/2010

Stayed in silver springs on a lidl-break this year for a long week-end. Very good value for money, hotel is bout 10 min drive to cork city centre or bout 40 min walk. Hotel was very comfortable, staff excellent, swimming pool in need of an update. Hotel is very close to the train station.
