The food in cobo bays restraunt with fantastic sea views is an experience I will not forget. Whilst over from Jersey with friends I was amazed at the service I recieved from the Gold Award restaurant. Next time I am over in August I will be back again. Great service and Quality and worth every penny.

We had a side room with a sea view, away from the building work on the other side of the hotel. The room standard was very good and we appreciated the fresh fruit and the regular supplies of bottled spring water. Breakfasts were excellent and the staff looked after us very well. Without exception, all of the staff were friendly and helpful. The Guernsey bus service is efficient, good value for money and bus stops are very close to the hotel so you can enjoy some wonderful leisurely walking and catch the bus back to the hotel afterwards. The views from the terrace and the restaurant are exactly how they appear in the photographs and the sunset sparks a rush of guests with cameras, trying to capture the moment, as the vista is so beautiful.

What a great hotel. Must have the best location on the island with stunning views of the sunset out to sea. Our bedroom was on the second floor with a balcony to enjoy the view. Great food and friendly staff. Must mention the lovely bar waitress from Latvia. Very good service with a smile which is always appreciated. Mind you all the staff were excellent. Nothing too much trouble - even making a Margarita cocktail for someone! The breakfast options were just too much for us. Fruit juice, cereals with yoghurt, raisins, apricots, raspberries, blueberries etc etc, then full English and more besides! You would struggle not to enjoy this place!

Room Tip: Try for a room with a sea view.

The Cobo Bay Hotel is a recently refurbished property in a great location. It does, however, have its problems!
The hotel next to the Cobo Bay is currently being rebuilt, and the area to one side, and directly behind the Cobo Bay is a building site, with work (including angle grinding) commencing early in the morning!
Upon arrival we were surprised to find that the Cobo Bay no longer has an adjoining car park and has just four spaces (for a 30+ room hotel, bar and large restaurant) and no on street parking. The hotel now has a car park about a quarter of a mile away – not so good for elderly guests. It would appear that the old Cobo Bay car park now belongs to the hotel currently being rebuilt.
On check-in we were told that we were being upgraded to superior rooms – which didn’t happen. We were told that one room would definitely be upgraded the following day – which didn’t happen either
Overall, it’s a good hotel – the staff were friendly, and there were nice ‘touches’ in the rooms (bath robes, slippers, fresh fruit & mineral water etc.) – it just needs to do something about the car parking!

If you are looking for a hotel that treats it's guests like royalty then this is the one to choose. Nothing was too much bother, the food and service was terrific. If you are disabled then room 201 is the room to ask for, it has a wet room with well appointed hand rails and a non slip floor there are comfy bathrobes for you to use and slippers to wear after the lovely shower. This room also has a balcony with 2 comfy chairs and a small table for you G&T or afternoon cuppa of which is there in your room for you to make whenever you want.
Disabled parking is limited but having said that we were able to park outside the door every day.
