Due to the role I am in for my company, I am out of Auckland every 2 weeks. I stay at the Bella Vista when I'm in Hamilton every time (usually about 2-3 nights) and it's my favourite place to stay whilst on the road. Roger and Jenny are great hosts, very clean and tidy, hygienic, nice facilities, good internet... More

Loved the fact that the door to the room is a sliding glass door. Too cool. The Room was clean, comfortable and well maintained. The Owner was courteous and very helpful. He gave us plenty of ideas as to what we could do in the area. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it.

As far as motels go, this is a pretty good bet, especially if you find yourself in Hamilton for a night or two. Located on what seems to be the motel strip, the place was clean and check in was efficient. Complimentary milk on arrival to complement the complimentary tea/coffee in room was a nice touch. Room itself was a... More

Great Room it was huge beautifully appointed and well equipped. Beautiful linen on the bed .It had a fully equipped Kitchen which was ideal because we had been to lots of expensive resturants so it was nice to have a meal in the room. Very quiet which is what you want after a busy day travelling.Fully recommended.

Located on Hamilton's main motel strip this is a convenient, quiet motel. Clean and bigger than average rooms with good parking and free WiFi. Booked at short notice the rooms were very reasonable in price.

Fantastic service, excellently equipped room, with good lighting, heating, a fan, and even an oven! There was heaps of room, and nothing was too much trouble. A pleasant 20 minute walk to many fine restaurants in downtown. Fully recommended!

..but this place is nothing short of great! This motel is pretty unremarkable in appearance and is located in a long strip of nondescript hotels in the lodging district of suburban Hamilton. I made a reservation there because I stayed at the airport Bella Vista in Auckland and felt it was a good hotel for the money. We got a... More

I stayed in a studio room for 5 nights on business and enjoyed my stay very much. My room was quiet and warmed up quickly with the wall heater on, and there was an electric blanket too. My collegues complained of traffic noise from the road, but my room was furthest from the street and I didnt experience noise. I... More
