Bella vista was a lovely place to stay! We booked an executive double and ended up with a "suite" - a self catering one bed apartment! It was lovely! Very clean and absolutely ideal for what we wanted! We were thrilled to have a living area as we checked in early in the evening and couldn't head out as we...

We had a wonderful experience from start to finish with Bella Vista. We rented one of the apartments with 2 bedrooms. The apartment is located in the perfect location, at the bottom of the hill, which we appreciated. It has recently been renovated and is very modern and lovely. All of the facilities were fantastic. Cobh itself feels like the...

We've stayed in any hotels & have been pleased when first entering the room but this was more of a WOW! The bathroom was as big as some of the hotel rooms we've stayed in...The room was full of character & the self catering facilities were excellent. I'm looking forward to a return visit soon.

We wanted to be near Cork, without staying in Cork city itself. Cobh and the Bella Vista fitted the bill perfectly. Our room - the Cathedral View - had big glass windows onto a verandah which had a direct view of the cathedral, the harbour and Spike Island. As well as the verandah, the room had a large lounge/dining area...
