“Exceptional Service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

My husband & I stayed here in May for our wedding anniversary - the hotel is fab & the view from our room of Cobh Harbour was breath-taking. Unfortunately I suffered a medical emergency while dining down the town, & due to the kind assistance of the manager I seeked medical attention fast, she escorted us to the nearest doctor & I am very grateful to her for this. The following day once I returned from the hospital we were offered our room, for the day free of charge so I could rest. I thought this was just wonderful. We plan to come back again soon as this hotel well & truly deserves the business. The breakfast room was gorgeous & again fantastic views.

Dear Guest,

Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. It is greatly appreciated! We hope that you have recovered back to your full health following your recent illness. It was no problem at all offering you your room. We hope your medical emergency didn't dampen the trip to much and hopefully your husband and yourself still had a relaxing time.

Wishing you both many more happy years of health and happiness. Hope to see you again soon,
Warm Regards,
Ryan.

Good facilities in the very spacious 1 bedroom unit we had for a few days. Everything was very clean and the view across the bay was beautiful. Only complaint was that the guests in the room above were quite noisy until late at night, otherwise would recommend this hotel in Cobh which is a really beautiful town with lots to see and do.

Stayed here for a week mid July self catering with my family and cannot fault the place. It was nice and relaxing just what I was looking for.
Advantages:
- Bedrooms were very large and the beds are very comfortable.
- Supermarkets 1KM away for hotel
- Good selection of channels on the TV
- Power Showers
- On Site Bar and Chinese restaurant (which will serve until the wee hours)
- Cobh is a beautiful little coastal town steeped in history that seems to be more alive during the day that at night. The train station is very neat the Bella Vista and trains go from the station nearly every half hour to bring you to an from Cork City.
Disadvantages:
- We didn't drive so the only drawback are the very steep hills that lead up the apartments which can be quite challenging at the best of times.

I would definitely go back here for another week but this time bring my car.
P.S The nice staff even managed to provide us with fresh scones most day's which was a lovely touch.

I stayed here with my grandparents and my sister. I loved the hotel. The room was really spacious and peaceful. Breakfast was excellent. The man in reception was really nice and helpful. Stay here!
Cobh was lovely, the Titanic trail was brilliant!
