Lovely hotel overlooking Bantry Bay and in comfortable walking distance to all of Bantry's amenities. Fabulous room and gorgeous breakfast. We also enjoyed use of the leisure centre and pool with heated steam room, sauna and Jacuzzi. Will be back!

Great hotel. Lovely room, views & location. All staff were friendly and helpful - service with a smile down to a fine art. Restaurant food was excellent with lots of choice for non meat eaters. We were delighted we'd booked an option including meals. Have already recommended to family & friends and look forward to going back again sometime soon.

Hotel was great, staff very friendly, particularly Aileen in the restaurant. The restaurant was able to accommodate our late arrival on Friday night. Breakfast was fantastic, loads of selection. Our room was nice and quiet, bed was very comfy. Our only minor complaint was that the room did not overlook the water. Would definitely recommend to others.

We had an excellent visit to the Maritime Hotel. The room was spotless and spacious, overlooking Bantry Bay. We had dinner and it was superb. The service and friendliness of the staff was faultless. I don't often write reviews but I felt it was so necessary to comment on our experience. We will definitely be back. Gerry and Betty

Stayed here with my husband recently. Requested Sea View and birthday celebration. Staff could not be nicer from reception and dining room. They upgraded our room and left birthday card and strawberries in our room. We really had a lovely break and will definitely be returning. The food and service was excellent.

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

Fabulous food, nice pool/spa - room was a bit of a trek to get to - down a long corridor and up multiple lifts but apart from that a great value for money experience

we really enjoyed our stay in the hotel, staff were very friendly, helpful. The hotel itself is lovely, the rooms are fab.... we had dinner in the restaurant, which was beautiful, we had a lovely young waitress, I cant remember her name, began with A? , she was so friendly and chatty - not formal at all like some restaurants, we took a stroll up the town afterwards, to walk off the dinner lol, but came back to the hotel for the evening, could not find a single fault with this hotel, we will definitely be returning here again soon,

Really pleased with our stay in the Maritime. Staff were lovely, we has a great room with a view overlooking Bantry Bay. We paid a small supplement to order from the a la carte menu and had a very enjoyable dinner. All in all it was great value for money and would highly recommend it. Anne Thornton

Kevin Barry My wife and I stayed at the Maritime on August 11th, 2013 and had a great time. The room was spacious and clean with a lovely sea view. The staff were friendly and courteous and the food was delicious. We enjoyed a delicious evening meal (after a refreshing swim in the hotel pool) and buffet breakfast the following morning with the extra specials on offer. Would recommend this hotel to a friend!

First impressions of the hotel weren't very good from the outside. It could do with being re-painted. But apart from that we didn't find any faults. Service was good. Friendly helpful staff. The bedroom was a good size, nice decor, good sized bathroom, lovely shower. Breakfast was also very good. Nice swimmimg pool and kiddies pool. And the aromatherapy massage was really good.
