When we first arrived I was concerned due to no air con or pool given the temps in the 30s. However the friendliness of the owners and the exceptional level of cleanliness won us over. The configuration of the room was well suited to our needs with the queen bed in the lounge and the 2 single beds in the...

Clean, spacious and close to botanical gardens Short driving distance to supermarkets and CBD. We had a one bedroom unit with a single bed in lounge. With three of us we had plenty of room. Our unit was upstairs at the back so no main road noise which is always a plus. Helpful friendly hosts.

Hi Moira, Thank you for your kind review. We're sorry to hear that you found the bed to be too soft, unfortunately it is always difficult to find the exact "one feel fits all bed" that caters for everyone's taste. We have a marvelous team that cleans our motel and we're glad that you noticed the excellent work they do....

Stayed for just one night at the Bella Vista but would definitely go back. Very comfortable beds, plenty of easy parking, good powerful shower, nice fast wireless internet, and helpful hosts. What more could you ask for?

The hotel is in a great location. It was extremely cleansed well set out. The manager went out of her way to assist us with the problem we had with our next town booking. She said to leave it with her and sorted out our problem of accidentally double booking the night. The motel is excellent value for money.

Nice friendly welcome. 6 of us turned up on 3 motorcycles and a car, and were warmly received. One couple got a free upgrade. Rooms are small but well presented. Not much room to move around but quite adequate.
