Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Friendly welcome, attentive service from the front desk, and great Chinese food too! I had the panorama suite, which was very clean and comfortable. I had a tremendous view of the cathedral and the port. It’s a healthy walk down to the town and back.

Having stayed here a few times for buisness trips, this is by far one of the most friendly comfortable and hospitable hotels that I have stayed in. All the staff are great really friendly approachable and go above to make sure you have a great stay. All the rooms I have stayed in have always been immaculatly presented and very clean and fresh. The views from the front are fantastic as you look across the bay with the catherdral in your eye line also. Deffinatly worth a stay.

I could not fault Bella Vista Hotel & Self Catering Suites, Everything was immaculate lovely clean rooms,comfortable beds,spotless bathrooms and breathtaking views unfortunately the weather wasn't on our side for our stay but that didn't take away from the experience we had we had views of spike island and st colemans cathedral right from our room at Bella Vista we watched tankers and ships pass by our window at night it was so picturisque Cobh town is literally a 5 minutes walk away with some stunning restaurants and all essential shops the staff at Bella Vista were so friendly and always on hand to help whenever needed on our last morning before we departed we enjoyed a delicious buffet style breakfast at Bella Vista's own restaurant, Bella Vista also sell some lovely souvenirs such as fridge magnets and keyrings which we purchased as a little reminder of our family trip we stayed as a family of four and our little girls had the best time we can't wait to go back in the summer months.

The hotel with modern furniture sits up on a hill and has great views. The staff were friendly and showed us to our room. The made to order breakfast was delicious and served by a courteous staff. My only complaint is the Chinese restaurant, some of the worse Chinese food I have ever had.

The room itself was very basic, like an airport hotel room. I found the bed was quite hard which made it uncomfortable. It was however very clean. A desk fan was left in the room which was very much appreciated given the humid nights we've been having. The bathroom is nicely decorated and a good size with a nice walk-in shower. The car parking situation is kind of hit and miss. The receptionist was very friendly on check in and booked us a table in the Chinese restaurant. He walked us to our room while politely chatting with us. The staff in the restaurant were also very friendly. The smart TV in the room is nice and big.

We had a good visit to Cobh. Bella Vista was perfect for the 9 of us. Everything worked and the staff was helpful. The bar was nice and the restaurant was good. We were thankful for the parking lot. We found many things to do there. One should know that it is hilly there. You

If you’re arriving by train, do NOT listen to Google Maps. It says it’s an 8 minute Correct!!!! But it doesn’t say it’s all uphill including 92 stairs on the “shortcut”. Lol. Call the hotel. They will come get you. The check in was seem less. Daniela was magnifico!! She’s Italian. There’s a pub and restaurant on site. Great breakfast. Wonderful Chinese food restaurant. Locals eat here is your first clue. Rooms were good. I found the bed hard but my wife didn’t. Short walk to St Colmans church, a must see. Several pubs in walking distance as is the Titanic Experience. We stayed for 4 nights.

I enjoyed my stay at the Bella Vista and would highly recommend to anyone staying in Cobh. It is a lovely walk down to the water. The room was very nice and staff were so helpful with arranging a ride to the train station, early breakfast, and anything else we needed.
