The Suite we stayed in was gorgeous! Fresh fruit and chocolates were on the table complimentary as we walked in. It was spotless and clean, towels were provided. The beds were great and comfy! Since we are a large family, we did not want to be separated into different hotel rooms, and the suite was ideal as it was large... More

Not only was this concern genuine it permeated through ALL the staff we encountered and appered to stem from the philosophy of the management. This was... More

We were staying a couple of nights at the Bella Vista to explore the region around Cobh. The Hotel was great with a perfect breakfast menu. Everyone from the staff was very friendly and helpful. An extra thank you to the bar keeper, who organised a surprise for my birthday night. To get the excellent rating at our next visit,... More

We arrived after our long drive and ferry crossing very tried and hungry. The place was great. Staff very friendly and just so helpful. Hobh is a great town and a must for all visitors to Ireland. If we are back this way again will certainly give you a call.
