“Guernsey Break - Cobo Bay Hotel”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

We have just returned from our first visit to Guernsey.
We stayed for five nights at the Cobo Bay Hotel.
It is an excellent place to stay, good location overlooking the sea, we went with two friends and we both had standard bedrooms that had side sea views. The rooms (216 and 115) were spacious and finished to a high standard with lots of great extras like bathrobes, slippers, fruit, drinks and biscuits etc.
The staff are brilliant and really make you feel welcome. Special thanks to lady in the bar (Vicky - Chelsea fan !)
The breakfasts were very good, although we only dined once in the evening we were very impressed with the quality of the food, its presentation and service. The restaurant staff were very attentive, smart and very pleasant.
Well done everybody.

Room Tip: We had side rooms that were on the side away from the road that runs in front of the hotel, so we ha...

I have been staying in Guernsey for business for the lasttren years staying at various hotels. Cobo Bay Hotel has had a major refurbish in the last couple of years and I had used this hotel before the refurbishment which I had always found a good value hotel. Since the refurbish this hotel has set an amazing standard rooms are comfortable and beautifully furnished, little additions like afresh fruit in your room, excellent tea/coffee facilities and beautiful bathrooms. For the price this hotel is great value and so comfortable.
On my last trip I had a delay in arriving but staff were there when I arrived at 11.15 at night. Friendly staff and very helpful.
Breakfast is fantastic with a very high quality of food and so much choise.
Great walks as this hotel looks out onto the beautiful Cobo Bay. You will not be dissappointed if you book a stay here.

Staff good, very friendly. We had a standard side room which was lovely and still had side sea views and was also quiet as it was not on the main road. Our evening meal was superb and the breakfast was excellent.

We had a rather small room with not much room between the bed and dressing table, however the balcony and lovely sea views made up for that. The restaurant service and food was excellent, but the smell of disinfectant on the way to breakfast as they had washed the floors was rather off-putting. The outside bar was open even though it was freezing but the heaters took the edge off. Reception were a bit offhand and were on the phone when we were checking out.

I feel in love with the Island of Guernsey, especially Cobo Bay and this great hotel there!

The staff were so friendly and helpful, the food was always fresh and cooked to perfection and the facilities and the room were more than sufficient and clean!

I will be going back to Guernsey and I will be staying at the Cobo Bay Hotel!

We've just returned from our second stay at the Cobo Bay Hotel. The service was excellent without being over the top. There is nothing worse than someone hovering round the table all the time when you are eating. Here they get it just right- there when you want something then leave you in peace and the food quality and choice is excellent. I have a dietary problem but it wasn't a problem here - they made sure that I had what I needed. The rooms are superb, they even provide robe and slippers. Nothing is too much trouble. Many hotel beds are not comfortable but the beds at Cobo Bay Hotel are fantastic. We lacked for nothing. Many thanks to ALL the staff who worked so hard and made our stay really enjoyable.

Room Tip: We have stayed in a seafront room and a side room at the hotel. Both rooms were excellent. This time...

Just been to Guernsey for the first time. Stayed at the Cobo Bay Hotel with a room (and balcony) overlooking the sea. Extremely comfortable with all the usual facilities - Iron and ironing board, hairdryer, tea and coffee making things. Wall mounted TV with Sky Sports! (Important because it was The Masters from Augusta!). The food was outstanding. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the free WiFi so able to keep in touch with family via email from my phone. I would not even look at another hotel if we were to return to Guernsey - I would ask for the same room.

Room Tip: It is worth having a sea view room, the view of the sea can be quite spectacular if it is windy.
