Location was on a main road so was good access to everywhere we wanted to go, staff were very helpful and friendly, so for value overall for couple nights stopover suited us very well, its not a destination, but as a base for sightseeing etc was perfect. was within walking distance of the town centre, though a little poorly lit...

nice service and good location. When we arrived there, the reception lady was very friendly to help us check-in. The room was very clean and tidy. Although we lived in the ground level where near the parking area closely, we feel very quite and private.

We arrived in the afternoon; the motel manager greeted us at the office and walked through the to-sees and to-dos around Rotorua. When she heard we were planning to go to Polynesian Spa that night, she gave us some towels for the spa. On top of that, she also gave us a lot of discount vouchers for all sorts of... More

I stayed two nights in the Bella Vista and was pleasantly surprised at the motel. Kevin and Sue were exceptionally friendly and helpful and this continued throughout the stay. The room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. Despite being close to the main highway, you do not hear the traffic at night. The car park is large with enough space... More

Tidy Motel in a handy location room was clean but rather small, (studio unit), so only one lounge chair not the place for more than one night. Owner was helpful but never did give me the Wifi code, no real milk provided nor any real coffee. Busy road but not too noisy at night. Good value for money.

Nice and clean motel with a helpful host whom helped to suggest a number of sight seeing attractions. The motel location is superb as it is near to most attractions. The washing machine is free to be use.

The Bella Vista motel is set on a busy road but it was very quiet at night. The motel had a spacious garden area with a barbeque. The room was clean, comfortable and well appointed. The motel was close to the town centre
