My husband and I were welcomed very warmly. We were directed to a comfortable sitting room and offered something to drink. My husband had tea and I had a glass of wine. We chatted with our hostess about the house and the area and asked for directions for a good place to go for dinner. We were given a suggestion that we filled up on and it was all that Deidre has told is. After getting acquainted we were shown to our lovely room.
Deirdre was very welcoming and chatted with us on our arrival. We had a drink by the fire, very nice! Our ensuite room was cosy, quiet and very comfortable with nice touches. Deirdre told us of a discounted meal deal in Cobh, which we took advantage of. We had a great nights sleep and were up and on on our way early. We would recommend this accommodation.
Deirdre's home is gorgeous, tranquil and homely. She was very kind, welcoming and genuinely friendly. We slept so well in the lovely beds, and peacefully quiet area. However the home is a long walk from the centre of Cobh, at least 30 minutes I would say.
The breakfast of pancakes and mushrooms were excellent, but I had assumed breakfast was included, which it wasn't. Overall we had a lovely stay.
Delighted you enjoyed your stay. Just to clarify we are 15 mins walk from Cobh. A €5 taxi ride if you don't feel like walking.
We never marketed ourselves to be in the middle of Cobh town. That's what makes Robin Hill so peaceful.
We offer quality accommodation in a Grade 2 listed 19th Century Victorian house with beautiful views and garden at affordable prices with an extensive breakfast (website hidden) states quite clearly on (website hidden) that we are room only so I am not sure why you assumed breakfast was included. We offer complimentary welcome drinks on arrival which is all part of the centre of excellence status we have been awarded.Good luck with your work in Taiwan.
Had a lovely time staying at Deirdre's place. She is a great hostess and we had the most wonderful warm welcome when we arrived at her cozy place. I can only recommend it to everyone and hope to return whenever I'm around the area again! Thanks again Deirdre for the lovely experience
