The location of the hotel is just a short walk down to Cobh Heritage Centre which is worth a visit. We stayed in suite 7 for six days which was lovely, comfortable with great views of the harbour. The staff and service was excellent and we were made very welcome. Looking forward to our next stay.

Location is excellent and sea view are breathtaking. Very friendly staff and spotlessly clean accommodation. Good value for money. Town and tourist hotspots are within walking distance. The food is excellent. s
