Motel is modern looking, rooms are clean and well appointed. Situated on the main road north it is easy to find and handy to the city centre. Owners were friendly and welcoming. Despite being on the main road it was very quiet. I would stay again when in Whangarei.

We had a lovely short stay at the Bella Vista in Whangarei. Our room was lovely and exceptionally clean , big enough for two adults and our children. The kitchenette was well equipped. Two televisions, one in the bedroom and the other in lounge with good channel selection. Highlight was most definitely that spa bath and the plentiful supply of...

So this is our fourth experience in a Bellavista motel, this time in Whangarei. We had no idea about this chain, when we reserved our first one from Canada! We have been reserving a Queen Studio each time, but there wasn't one, only the King, which we took in spite of its higher price. (thank you, Sharon, for your generosity)....

I had one night's stay at the Bella Vista recently. The double bed was comfortable, but in the middle of the summer the choice for cool air was either windows open (heavy traffic noise in the mornings) or small wall fan on (giving slightly warm air on the fan only setting). Air conditioning would be something worth investing in, on...

Thank you for you review. We will be looking at air conditioning in the new future. Having just purchased this motel and this being our first summer here we are still learning what is needed to be improved. We hope you will consider staying again when you are in Northland.

We had stayed at this motel twice. Once at unit 3 (Executive Queen) and another time at unit 9 (One Bedroom Executive unit) which was at the upper level. The units were clean and comfortable, and came with spa bathtub in both. On our first stay on the ground floor unit we were disturbed by noise from the adjoining unit...

We enjoyed our stay. The manager was very friendly and helpful. There was a fair bit of road noise but we weren't worried by it.

We got herded back inside from the public footpath for standing out there having a cigarette, because apparently it is a corporate motel...didn't see that anywhere in the information provided about this place.

We stayed for one night on our way north. This motel is highly recommended, immaculately clean and fresh inside, very good facilities and a beautiful big bathroom with excellent shower. Rooms not large but plenty of space for us and our daughter. Would stay here again.
