Had my wedding there just a couple of weeks ago but honestly not much negociation.....corkage..... Ended up getting all my family and friends to book rooms online through a separate web site as prices were way more competitive. Otherwise found they looked after us so well. Attention to deail outstanding. No sloppy service, tables set up imaculately....etc...

Hey Midsummer2010, I've booked the Sheraton Fota for April 2010 and I can't wait, my cousin was there recently for a wedding and he said the level of service was outstanding. I would try and negotiate for as much as possible, the corkage, the room prices, the gym before the wedding, the choice for the meal. The advise I got was to try to negotiate things not related to the main menu price, but to try to get more things included in the package. Have you signed your conract yet?

Hi cutekitten.... we have booked it for june 2010... really like the hotel & have found them very helpful so far, agree that there is not much room for negotiation but felt it was the right venue for us! what do you think about the name change & no longer being a Sheraton hotel?

It is a lovely hotel and I adore the room, my photographer said at night with all the spotlights on the room is fab. I'm not worried at all about the name change at all. The word on the street is that you have to pay the Sheraton group to use their name and he chose to stop doing that. I'd say they're doin so well that they are able to go ahead on thier own.
