This was our first visit but it won't be our last. It's a clean, friendly, family run hotel in the centre of Cobh. Staff took care to make sure my breakfast was gluten free as requested. We were happy with our stay.

Bella Vista Hotel was located in a perfect spot in Cobh and had beautiful views of the city and water. It is worth it to pay the little extra and get a room with a water view. The hotel staff was very helpful and recommended places to eat and gave some history of the town.

Fab hotel in fab location, overlooking the harbour.Trad night on the Saturday night and Sports night on the Sunday night for the Masters. Only a short walk from Cobh town centre. And less than 10km to Fota Island Wildlife and Golf Resort. A very scenic and busy part of Ireland.
