We stayed here for 3 nights and loved it. Had room numbers 10 right up at the top. I see other reviews saying they didn't like the sloped ceiling but I think it adds character to the room. If you want plain and boring go stay in a Travelodge :-) Staff were the friendliest I have ever met and I look forward to returning for hopefully a longer stay next time. If there was one thing I could change it would have been the bedding ,from blanket to a duvet, but as the weather was gorgeous all we needed was a sheet anyway. 11 out of 10

Hello Joanna,
Thank you so much for your review. We are glad that you had an enjoyable stay with us. As you say our rooms at the top of the building do have character, and we are glad to like them. We do also have modern suites at the other side of the hotel to cater to everyone’s taste not everyone likes the classic style even though they are also our favourite. Next time you stay with us make sure to mention if you would like a duvet when you arrive as our rooms have different bedding as some people do not like duvets. It will be no trouble to arrange a duvet if one is not in our room. I will certainly pass your great comments on to the rest of the staff at Bellavista. We’re glad you got to enjoy the lovely sunshine and got to experience Cobh, and it’s festivals in the sun. Thank you again for your feedback.
Kind Regards,
Aisling.

Spacious, clean room, friendly staff and delicious breakfast. Fantastic location with view over Cobh Harbour. 5min walk to town centre. Big carpark, nice pub and takeaway option. I am looking forward to visit Cobh again and stay in Bellavista of course.

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. It has all the basics required, clean room, excellent bar and the breakfast was first class. Staff were always friendly and willing to help. The only down side was that our room was above the reception and facing the car park (Smoke area) which can be noisy depending on the other guess staying at the time.
Excellent value for money, close to the town.

Hello,
Thank you very much for taking the time to write about your stay with us. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your time here. We are extremely lucky to have such nice staff that do their best to ensure every guest has an enjoyable stay. We are disappointed to hear that you were disturbed by other guests. We do have a designated smoking area in the hotel but given the lovely weather some people chose not to use this. Thank you for the positive feedback and we will certainly rectify this for future guests staying at the hotel. Thanks again for choosing The Bellavista Hotel and Self Catering Suites; we would love to welcome you back in the future.
Kind regards,
Aisling.

Ticked most of the boxes. Parking, free wifi, clean, spacious room and ensuite with bath and good shower pressure. Easy walking distance to town centre. Friendly staff. For the price, should include breakfast. Would recommend Cobh as a tourist destination. Quay restaurant had great food.

Hello there, thank you so much for reviewing our hotel, all of our rooms are individually decorated to a high standard and we are very proud of this. Our on-site restaurant and bar can offer a quite alternative to the hustle and bustle of the town, yet the town is only a 5 minute walk away. Cobh is a town of many hills and to appreciate the view it's always at the top !! We would love to welcome you back here the next time you are in the area.
Kind regards

Room was clean and fresh, staff were excellent.
Go to the "Roaring Donkey" on wednesday evening for the best (free) irish music.
Train into Cork City takes the nightmare out of a complicated traffic system and pay to park system.
Recommend the Quays restaurant for excellent food

Room Tip: We were lucky enough to get a seaview side room - would ask for that.

Hi Denise, It was wonderful you had the time to post such a lovely review, we really do appreciate it. Cobh is a super town with buckets of character and always has loads going on, from regattas, to music festivals. We are so lucky to have such a great reliable train link to the city, only 25 minutes, and the train station is only a 5 minute walk from the hotel. We pride ourselves in ensuring that all our guests have an enjoyable stay here in Cobh, and would love to welcome you back again in the future.
