My girlfriend dragged me to this place and must say that I liked it a lot. Usually these quieter places are not for me, but this place made me do some soul-searching for the first time. A place one should go with your friends and partners.

Amazing B&B that makes you feel like it is your home away from home! We stayed at Bella's for five nights in February and I can't say enough good things about it. From the hosts, superb breakfasts, excellent location and every little detail of the luxury rooms is perfect. Highly recommend if you visit Auckland!

This B & B was about to be sold and a new one nearby renovated by the same hosts, so this rating is about them. They kept an immaculate old house that was very modern on the inside.

We stayed for 2 nights at the end of our 5 week adventure in New Zealand. The house is immaculate in every way.

We stayed here in November 2014 for one night on arrival into New Zealand. Couldn't have wished for a better place for our first night. I had booked it on recommendation of the owner of the now-closed 23 Hepburn B&B ( which got great write ups in lots of places) after getting fed up with the prices and boring, tired... More

Bella's lived up to its high rating. The rooms are lovely and guests get a lot of communal space to use. Sandra makes you feel very welcome and nothing is too much trouble. She accommodated our 1am arrival without any fuss. She also put some of our dirty washing that we had left in the wardrobe through the wash unbidden.... More

This is a wonderful boutique bed & breakfast in Auckland. The host made us most and the home made breakfast was delicious. We would love to return. The accommodation is architect designed with a wonderful eclectic feel.

After 3 weeks in a campervan we treated ourselves to spend the last two nights in New Zealand at Bella's. The house is in a perfect location walking distance to the bars, shops and restaurants of Ponsonby as well as downtown Auckland but with sufficient free parking on the streets. The room and the bathrooms are super clean and modern.... More
