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

Ideal place to stay on arriving in New Zealand. Wonderful friendly welcome. Extremely comfortable and modern rooms Spotlessly clean. Varied and very tasty breakfasts that set us up for our days of exploring. Easy walking distance to the waterfront of the city. The above summarises our opinion of Bella's. Sandra and Doug were perfect hosts and we would like to... More

Tripadviser Our three weeks motorbike holiday through New Zealand we had planned with the assistance of Tripadviser. We picked our daily distances what we wanted to drive and choose a place to sleep or a restaurant via the reviews of Tripadviser. The first night we had chosen Bella 's Bed & Breakfast in Auckland. This was a good choice which... More

We stayed at Bella´s Bed and Breakfast in February (better late than never to write a Review), and we enjoyed our stay immensely. It was perfect in every aspect. The very nice hosts Sandra and Doug were ever so nice and we had many interesting conversations. Thank you for your generous hospitality. The whole house and the small garden were... More

Many would know by now that this bed and breakfast was named after the host's pet puppy, Bella, instead of the host. This shows the quirkiness of our hosts and also their 'others-centred' nature. During our stay, Sandra was extremely affable and generous in sharing her knowledge of Auckland, but what stood out most was the effort she made to... More

Fantastic B&B in Ponsonby. Excellent location, easy walk to Ponsonby restaurants. We were upgraded from the Magnolia to the City Lights suite (large roon with city view, small balcony, bath), which was a treat after a long intercontinental flight. Loved the style of the B&B! Great service and restaurant tips. Breakfast was superb! Would definitely recommend to stay here.
