“Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

It took me a while to get to the lodge, because my map app gave me the wrong directions! But once I got there I understood its location. Its about 1 1/2 miles from the train station (easy walk) and 2 miles from the coach station. A taxi would be very quick, but the walk is pleasant! It's a really nice, homey place to stay. Its very charming on the inside, with antique decoration. The room was a good size, and the bathroom had a tub! Everything was great, no complaints.

My husband and I were extremely pleased! We were given room #10 which could not have been more perfect, ground floor room with a patio door to the quiet and lovely garden courtyard! Super breakfast to get us started for 4 busy days, staff was wonderful and Vincent (owner) gave us a ride to the train station for our day of touring in Cobh and great suggestions for Fota Island etc enroute back to Cork. Coming from the heat in Arizona in August, we especially appreciated being in room #10 as we just sat in the garden for hours at night enjoying the perfect cool weather. All the taxi drivers we used knew exactly where the Inn was and that was great (especially after spending a bit too much time in the pubs)!
Thank you Belvedere Lodge,
Gina and Alan

I found the Belvedere Lodge very quaint and most comfortable. The staff was great and very helpful. Stayed there for over a week and they took care of everything for us! The breakfasts were very nice variety, hot and fresh. We would highly recommend!!

We stayed at the Belvedere Lodge over the weekend. We had a very comfortable stay, lots of aminities, free WF, a great room and comfortable bed. The staff were very friendly. The place was easy to find in Cork, and lots of parking space. I would stay there again as the price was also very good. One little disappointment was that there was no glutenfree bread available while I had requested it when booking online in the section where it asked 'Any special requests' but to be honest I did not take it up with management afterwards as I had some glutenfree bread with me.

Room Tip: Rooms at the garden side are quieter.

A very spacious comfortable room, free wifi, excellent breakfasts, friendly staff, and not a bad location.

Ample off road parking in-front of the lodge, and on the main road out of the city - great for exploring. The signage is not 100% easy to spot - we almost missed it in the rain.

Since it is a B&B, you do have to go out for evening meals, but you aren't far from the Silver Sands hotel (with it's excellent restaurant), and within easy travelling from the city centre, and access to the public bus system.

The breakfasts were lovely, although never exactly as requested - this didn't detract from our experience.

Room Tip: There are no lifts, so if you have heavy bags accept the offer of help, especially if you are alloca...

Location was great, just a short drive to the city. The room was really spacious and breakfast was lovely and there was plenty of parking. Excellent value for money.

The water in the shower went from really hot to really cold. While having breakfast a group of choir singers started singing / practising in the room next door. I assume they were guests but it felt like we were at mass trying to eat our breakfast. It was only 9.30am & they would have woken anyone who was still in bed. We just thought it was strange that the owners thought this was ok.

fantastic parking, warm welcome, they even tried to get me to eat some cake and tea on arrival, but I couldn't accept as I was to tired from the traveling. I booked this bed and breakfast as it allowed pets, I checked in and was shown to a ground floor room which had its own private access door out to the garden, perfect for little dogs, the garden was kept beautifully and had stunning flowers on display. I really enjoyed sitting out in the garden which my little monkey enjoyed a little run around. room was very clean and nice very old fashioned in a good way, there is a petrol station with small shop with in 2 min walking distance
