We thoroughly enjoyed our stay: hotel has quite a unique location; it's a great size at only 18 bedrooms; lovely relaxed, friendly atmosphere; very friendly, helpful staff; great view from our bedroom; lovely food; very pleasant decor throughout hotel. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Only negatives (none serious, didn;t detract from our enjoyment) hotel could do with a lounge / seating area for guests - there's only the bar, outside terrace and 2 tables in reception area. And worst thing was the piped music in public areas..... bit weird at times! All in all a great value, great hotel! Cobh itself is quite a sad town - bit neglected and rundown. Heritage Centre was superb and harbour / quayside activities were good entertainment. Cobh well-sitauted though for visiting the surrounding area.
