We stayed in Gisborne for over a week in Bella Vista Motel. Room was very clean and fully furnished. Owners helped us a lot to make the most of our stay. Really quiet nights and great french petit-déjeuner !! Will definitely come back !

Upon Arrival we were met by a very friendly manager. We asked about attractions and her local knowledge was excellent with what to see how far to go and where to eat. The room is very roomy and clean. We will definitely stay here again when in Gisborne.

Our first time in Gisborne and decided to stay at Bella Vista. Lovely clean tidy room not too far from the town centre. The Manager was really friendly with some good tips on things to do and places to eat.

Eric and Helen made us real welcome for our recent one night stay. They explained everything to us and the room was just what we needed. All very clean and quiet. Steps to the first floor were no hassle and Eric even asked to make sure we were ok with a room on the first floor. Well done and we... More

We stayed for 3 nights in March and couldn't have wanted for more. Our room was very clean, with a comfortable bed, free WiFi and in a quiet position upstairs. Small well stocked kitchenette and tea and coffee making facilities. Eric and Helen were very welcoming hosts and helpful with information on places to see and great restaurants to experience....

From the moment we walked in, Bella Vista was welcoming. Genuine, warm, friendly and helpful service. We were able to view several rooms before making our choice of a suite, which had a large living/dining area with a single bed, a separate bedroom with queen sized bed and a spa bath with shower over in the bathroom. Great little but... More

We discovered the Bella Vista chain in July 2013, and we love staying at them. They're good value for money, reliable, and best of all they're always owned by the most charming locals. This one is owned by a Kiwi/French family who were lovely and enthusiastic. The place is very nice, and not far to town if you have a... More
