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

Stayed here for one night after a trip overseas and wished we could have stayed longer. The stay was outstanding from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. The bath was so amazing I nearly didn't bother going out for dinner!!!! A very romantic setting with great views. Breakfast was very nice and the whole experience amazing. Well... 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.

Bella's provided a us with a great start to our 3+ weeks in New Zealand. Although we landed at 7AM and arrived at the B&B by 9AM, Sandra had gone out of her way to insure that our room was clean and ready for us when we got there. A much appreciated surprise! Located a leisurely 15-20 minute walk from... More

Bella's is a stylish, modern house in a great location for shops & restaurants. Our room was themed & had nice little touches that help to make a place special. Everything is spotlessly clean. Sandra is helpful & efficient & provides a great breakfast. If you are looking for somewhere exceptional, then this is the place to stay.

Unfortunately we only had one night at Bella's, but we really enjoyed our stay at this stylish B&B. We had a lovely room, clean, comfortable & with lots of special touches like the homemade fudge & biscuits, & a delicious breakfast next day (Sandra's muffins are yummy!).It's a beautiful property very close to the cafes & boutiques of Ponsonby Rd,&...

We were greeted by a blackboard welcoming us to Bella's. Fabulous hosts, very friendly, amazing omlettes and breakfast the next morning. The City Lights Suite was just perfect for a romantic wedding anniversary. The view from the balcony while sipping Moet was perfect. The bath was also a highlight for the evening. Thank you for making the stay so welcoming.... More

My Mum and I stayed at Bella's Bed and Breakfast for 4 nights in August this year and would highly recommend this gorgeous B&B to everyone! The B&B is beautifully decorated with lovely private spaces to relax but also friendly spaces to chat with other guests (including a gorgeous large living area with fire place and kitchen / dining space)....

What a wonderful detailed review you have given us. Having you and your Mum stay was a very special time indeed for yourselves and such a delight for Doug and I as well.
