We have had a very pleasant stay in Belle Vista Motel in Rotorua. Hosts were very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable, clean and modern. The local attractions are in walking distance from the motel. I can surely recommend the motel to everyone.

As most, also this Bella Vista Motel is a good place to stay for a desent price. The host was welcoming and accomodating (as to my early check-out before the normal office hours). The motel is in walking distance through from the city center (through the park) and therefore great for exploring the local attractions. Rooms are clean and equipped...

One night stay during school holidays. Very friendly staff, room was very clean and bed comfortable. Some plates and cutlery available. Reasonable cost considering the vacation time and crowds of visitors in the area

Stayed one night here. Hosts were warm and welcoming and their willingness to share their local knowledge was great. Room was a little small but very comfortable. Bathroom was roomy though. I would stay again.

A basic motel room good enough for a night's stay. The beds were not the most comfy and bed linen seemed a little old but we got a good night's rest. The motel is located close to the park, shops and restaurants which was good and the receptionist was really helpful in telling us what to see and do.

We stayed at Bella Vista for one night on our way through to Auckland. Sue and Kevin were great hosts and had plenty of tips for things we could do in Rotorua. Our king spa studio was clean, comfortable and very quiet despite the motel's proximity to a busy road. Very good value and would book again.

Brilliant location, had exactly what we needed. There were 8 of us from melbourne, sue and Kevin gave us discounts to sights and shows, handy walking tips, directions. Nothing was left out. Great location. We would all recommend Bella Vista, and promise we'll be back.

The motel is situated near town and a lovely park. The rooms are modern and clean, beds very comfortable. The owners were friendly and helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Bella Vista and would gladly stay there again.
