Reviewed November 12, 2013

I've stayed at the Bella Vista several times over the past eight years. I've gone on fishing breaks using the fantastic Bella Vista self drive boats, and on family holidays.
The hotel is first class with great well serviced rooms. The staff is very helpful and nothing is too much trouble. As for the boats and fishing, a sea fishermans paradise. Looking forward to the next visit.

We stayed in the top floor apartment with fantastic views out over Cobh harbour. The apartment was spacious, bright and well equipped. We loved that they brought us fresh scones and jam every morning, that was a really nice gesture. The Chinese restaurant serves great food and there is a nice bar to relax in also with live music on the nights that we stayed there. Will definitely be going back there.

As always, the team at Bella Vista outdid themselves to make our trip back to Cobh memorable! We have stayed at Bella Vista for each of our visits since 2007 and have always had exceptional service, clean and comfy rooms, and not to mention the spectacular views! The self-catering suite we booked this trip was like a small apartment with all we needed to relax and enjoy our vacation. Everyone is always friendly and more than willing to go the extra effort to make our stays extra special. We have a special place in our heart for the hotel and all the staff! Cannot wait to see everyone again soon!

Lovely homely hotel. Great service. Spotless room. Easy to get a parking space. Chinese restaurant on site was lovely and staff so friendly. Breakfast was great too and the homemade brown bread was to die for.

Room Tip: No lift so think about this when booking.

The hotel is not fancy but our rooms were spacious and the staff was very accommodating. They don't have an exercise facility but tipped me off to the local gym within walking distance. You can walk down to the harbor but very big hill. Close to the cathedral. I would stay here again if in the area.

Once again the team at Bella Vista excelled themselves. Straightforward check-in. Beautiful , warm, clean, comfy room with a fabulous view of the Harbour. A full Irish breakfast cooked to order and/or a continental buffet to suit everyone.
A "proper" coal fire in the cosy bar area. Very helpful, friendly, smiley staff. Good Irish hospitality at its best.
When in Cobh we wouldnt consider staying anywhere else.
Cant wait to go back !

Our stay in Suite 7 - Cathedral View was fantastic. Our 1 bed apartment was spotless and had every thing we needed, the beds were very comfortable and there was no problem getting extra towles each day also. Amazing view of the harbour, Spike Island and the Catherdral. Staff very helpful and made us feel very welcome. Lovely quaint little bar on-site and fantastic food in the on-site Chinese restaurant. Will definately stay again in Bella Vista, ideal for a relaxing break away.

Room Tip: If you are looking for a 1 bed self catering apartment, Suite 7 - Catherdral View is excellent.
