“Nice place in a great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

We spent a night in the WatersEdge hotel and we can say we were happy with the choice. While everything, starting from reception, room, beds or breakfast can be summarised as good, the best thing about the hotel is the sea view. The room that we stayed in was kind of on the side of the hotel, but still, it was great to see the golf & the ships just from your window.

I definitely recommend the hotel, with the observation that one must thing to make the experience complete is to get one of the sea view rooms.

Room Tip: Ask for sea view - it really makes a difference.

I stayed here on my recent visit to Ireland - the hotel was clean and very well presented. The views from my room were stunning and I had a balcony overlooking the harbour where I sat enjoying watching the ships both merchant and Irish Naval go past. The staff were very attentive and nothing was too much for them - they made me feel very welcome. They were informative of the local area and gave good recommendations of local attractions and eating places. Bonus points were free parking and Wi-Fi.

Room Tip: Room with a balcony

We stayed at the WatersEdge Hotel during a recent visit to Ireland. The staff was nothing but professional while providing a quality personal service. They assisted in making golf arrangements for my husband and provided excellent recommends for restaurants. The rooms were attractive, clean and well maintained. The views overlooking the water are amazing. Our first night we at the restaurant and our dinners were excellent. Our booking included breakfast which had a small buffet and then an order off the menu Fully Irish Breakfast selection.

We chose this hotel in Cobh for it's location and it did not disappoint! We had one of the rooms with a balcony - which was separated from the others with potted plants. Room was spotless, views were fantastic! A US Naval ship was docked just outside of the balcony. The hotel was within walking distant of shops, restaurants, and churches. That evening I had the best hot chocolate made in the restaurant! Breakfast was good. My only complaint would be the towels were rather worn. Besides that, everything else was great - location, food, room, employees. Parking was included as well as wifi. Great value!

Room Tip: Balcony rooms are quite spacious, views fantastic!

Only spent one night here on our way from CastleGregory to Dublin. Wish we could have stayed longer. Beautifully decorated. Very affordable and brilliant view. The continental breakfast was fresh and delicious. Rooms were big and very comfy. It was rather nostalgic staying in the last Port of Call for the Titanic.

We've just spent 3 nights at this super little hotel. Location room and facilities are splendid but what really sets this little gem apart is the hospitality. Friendly welcoming attentive staff for whom nothing is too much trouble. The bigger chains could learn a lot! Thank you

Arrived by train to the joy of seeing a cruise liner tied up alongside the station - then finding the hotel is next door and so what a view from the room window!. The hotel is 1 min walk from the station so thats perfect for me. The greeting was exceptional and the room quite superb. Everything to the highest standard with a very good ensuite. The view from the window was over the harbour and the approachs. Looking right across at the islands. The restaurant served a very good meal again with great views across the harbour. Very quite in a very nice town. Really enjoyed this hotel and intend to return for a longer period.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the harbour - not sure how many do.
