“friendly small hotel”
Reviewed 19 October 2013

Nice hotel, very friendly staff, quiet and plenty of room round the pool. food was quite good but better option is eating out as there are many great restaurants in the area. twenty minute walk up into Bellapais village, well illuminated at night. Our only real complaint was we were put into room 109 on arrival and this small claustophobic room was unacceptable. Fortunately we were moved the next day into a mountain view room which was much better, more spacious and with lovely views. Overall it was a very pleasant hotel, which we would visit again as long as we could be assured we would definately not be in rooms 109,110,111.

Room Tip: Mountain view rooms for sunny balcony, Sea view for shade.

I find it very difficult to be negative about the Bella View Hotel. It has to be one of the cleanest friendliest hotels we have visited, all the staff were cheerful and happy to help and the room was cleaned to a high standard with fresh towels every day.We stayed on a bed & breakfast option and found the choice perfectly adequate, scrambled egg, mushrooms, grilled tomatoes, potatoes and the usual ham cheese olives etc. We had an evening meal on a couple of occasions which was ok without being too exciting but at 45TL for 3 courses wasn`t bad value. The overall theme of the Hotel was intimate English Country House, regency style wallpaper, brass sockets and heavily framed pictures, not to everyone's taste but executed to a high standard never the less.
The Hotel offers a courtesy bus service to Girne 6 days a week but car hire is the best option for Northern Cyprus, we did however walk to Bellapais and back a couple of times which is a 30 minute walk up a steep hill.
I would have no hesitation in recommending The Bella View as a comfortable base for exploring or as a do nothing chillout break, we would certainly return.

We have just returned from the Bella view hotel.1st visit to N Cyprus. It certainly is not 5 star as billed, but a small very friendly hotel which was spotlessly clean. The staff were very helpfull nothing to much trouble. We were in room 107 the bedroom was very dark a small courtyard outside a solid stone wall for a view.Ask for a room overlooking pool. We were bed and breakfast which was ok.You do need a car as you are 3 miles out of the centre. Only £4 in a taxi.Where you are spoilt for choice for food options. Niazzi's restaurant very good.We had car for 3 days ( British rent a car) £23 per day . The drive out to the Karpaz penninsula, was well worth the 3 hour drive, and sit on golden beach for a couple on hours, virtually deserted. 2 good restaurants as well for lunch.We also went on a boat trip for the day ( The Blue Bird ) 2 stops for swimming and a very good lunch, fish, Chicken, and Meze. 40 TL each. vV good value
booze was extra but reasonably priced. We strolled down to the harbour and booked on the day, rather than book it thro hotel. All boats go out at 10.30 back at 16.30. Salamis and Famagusta also worth a visit. All in all a very enjoyable week

Room Tip: Go for pool view or 1st floor for better views

First visit to North Cyprus, we wanted a small quiet hotel with views of the coast.
Bella View is very friendly, staff and residents too.
Agreed the breakfasts didn't suit everyone, fresh fruit and muesli would be a great addition for me! We were half board so evening meal was included, mostly pretty good, some interesting concoctions. Al a Carte available at extra cost!
The bedroom was a little dark, we were at the back, ground floor, courtyard view, decor was dated dark wood, dark furniture, and dark wallpaper, lighting was also dim.
En suite shower room could do with a replacement shower, step in was high, not easy for older residents.
Staff were friendly and helpful, some not quite sure of the English language.
Outside furniture also a little tired, pool area had a few hazards.
We hired a car so explored quite a few areas, went to a concert in Bellapais Abby, which was lovely,
Overall we really enjoyed North Cyprus with its unspoilt mountains and coast,

Room Tip: Rooms with a view are first floor at the front.

This is a lovely comfortable hotel, situated half way between Bellapais and Kyrenia. Car hire is really necessary unless you are happy to just sit around the lovely pool area. Plenty of seating, including a couple of hammocks. Ideal bedrooms are on the first floor overlooking the pool. The bedrooms are very comfortable with a vintage theme of furnishing. The hotel is spotlessly clean and so to are the outside areas. The only downside is the breakfast, which at best is basic and repetitive. Also, its not worth paying for half-board on booking your holiday, as the prices are the same locally at the hotel. Far better to dine at Bellapais where restaurants offer free transport to and from the hotel. Kyrenia is also only a £3 taxi ride away with ample eating places.

We have just returned from the Bella View after a very pleasant two weeks. I agree with most of the plus points, certainly the rooms are extremely well looked after by the housekeeping staff, and the shower rooms are spotless, the outside areas are kept clean by a hard working senior citizen. The location can be quiet apart from a saturday afternoon when Bellerpais united play Kyrenia town just across the road, also there is a steady stream of coaches on their way up the hill to the village, plus some construction noise but not really enough to spoil the pool area. Do however be careful walking around the pool, during our visit one lady fell and broke an arm, and another cut her foot. The food is perfectly adequate without being terribly exciting, but is fair value. You will need to hire a car if you want more than just a lazy week, we paid £15 per day for a Ford Focus in good condition, petrol is cheaper than UK and the traffic much lighter. The four major restaurants in Bellapais will all collect, and return you to the hotel free of charge.Whist all the rooms are spotless there is quite a variation in size, both of the rooms and the shower area. We were lucky with 213 but some people did have issues. Avoid 109 which is really only a single and 110 which is an annexe. Would we go again? To Northern Cypres, most definately, to the Bella View? probably not,as we enjoy walking out at night and sampling new restaurants, so as a previous reviewer said. Its probably the Colony.

My husband and I visited bella View for the third year, and we were certainly not disappointed. The management remembered us as did the staff!! The chef is the same as when we first visited and he has just got better and better his food is amazing. Admittedly the two choices do not appear to be very much, but in 14days we did not have the same meal twice. I have food allergies and the chef did more than most English restaurants to accommodate my diet. The cleanliness of the hotel is second to none. There was no time when we were disappointed - we want to return next year!!! The wine is great and very reasonably priced as are the other bar drinks. Emrah will always go out of his way to help if you need anything, for taxis to car rental to fishing trips etc!!!!
