Once again, Kevin and staff at Bella Vista made our return visit to Cobh, our home away from home, simply perfect. We always look forward to our trips, spending time with friends, and relaxing. The Bella Vista ensures to make that happen; always welcoming and accommodating. Can't wait until our next visit!

Just home from a very enjoyable break. We stayed in the self catering suite. The rooms were very comfortable. The staff were fantastic and the scones in the morning were very much appreciated. Many thanks.

The hospitality was second to none with great views, clean rooms, and an all around wonderful atmosphere. The hotel is a quick walk down to the center of the city, although I will mention they have a great bar and restaurant on site.

This is a great place to stay although not conducive to walkers due to the hillside. Plenty of parking is available. The breakfast was very good and the staff was very accommodating.

As the name implies, the view is great of the town and harbor, and on clear days, you can see out to the ocean. Bella Vista is a cozy place, a bit of a mix between a B&B and a hotel, and I feel like it's a temporary home while far from home. The staff is friendly and helpful.
