My other half and me needed to head to Dunedin for the weekend but we had to take our Border Collie with us. The lovely staff at Bella Vista were more than happy to accommodate us and most importantly our lovely pup! It is so rare to come across a place that allows you to take your dog let alone... More

Loved it! Loved it! Loved it! Very tidy, clean, upmarket affordable accommodation if you're planning a trip to Dunedin. The bonus for us was that we could take our fur babies with us and they were welcome to stay as well. Very central to parks, the city center and other popular amenities. Please stay here next time.

I found this motel very comfortable and spotlessly clean. It had all the amenities I needed and the heater was able to handle freezing temperatures outside. Cheryl is friendly and helpful and I especially appreciated a later check-out on Sunday morning. Thanks very much.
