Loved the location. But very disappointed that the bed had no bed pad on it, just a raw mattress with a sheet. So it stunk bad of body odor. There was hair all over the bed, so I didn't feel it was cleaned very well. Good thing I brought my own pillowcase for this place! The shower leaked outside of... More

The hotel is well located on a central square in Cobh. The rooms are located above the Bistro but the entry is through a forbidding, large steel door round the back of the bistro in a rather rundown street. The room was OK, clean but lacked air conditioning or wifi. The small window opened onto a fire escape at the... More

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here for one night during a roadtrip around the southwest coast. Gilbert's was a great first stop on our trip. Situated in a very central location, with parking right outside, the room was simple but clean and the staff very accommodating. The double room had a large four-poster bed which was very comfortable and the... More

Food was clean and fresh and all served by very friendly staff. I looked for a vegetarian option and found a bruschetta that was very tasty. That was followed by mediterranean vegetable salad with goats cheese. My husband had the tempura fish and chips which he thought was wonderful.
