Very helpful staff, last minute booking and late check were not an issue. Rooms were clean and well equipped with standard kettle, microwave etc. Complimentary milk on check in is a nice touch in the middle of dairy country. Remember to ask for the wi-fi password!

Units exceptionally well presented and owner went out of his way to help us with all our questions. Information in the rooms was plentiful, very good King size bed and very spacious room. Would highly recommend Bella Vista Hamilton.

Nice large rooms well equipped. We had two bedrooms, kitchen unit and bathroom with a tub. Very clean and quiet for sleep. Beds very good. Large parking area for cars, although late in the evening it was completely full of cars as the motel then had no vacancies. The manager was very helpful and advised us to have dinner at... More

Checkin was very smooth and the caretaker personally took us to our room, showed us all the amenities and things related to our room. He told us about the various things around town and was helpful with the navigation around town. The beds were a little small but manageable for a night. The bathroom was sufficient and the experience was... More

Rooms are very clean and relatively modern. Attention to detail maintained with information package well placed and relevant. Beds are very comfy with good thought put into making it a comfortable stay. Well positioned to main road and Waikato stadium - short walk to CBD and supermarkets. Nice friendly relaxed welcome too!!

The room is so clean, highly recommended! Roger and Jenny are really great hosts. My family had a great stay here. If you have to stay in hamilton, you should go to Bella Vista, and you will not regret.

Spotlessly clean room. Ideal for the stadium around the corner. We stayed in the one bed studio, which was perfect as the kids had their own room. Very friendly host. Would definitely stay here again next time we are in Hamilton. Few minutes drive into the town centre and there are supermarkets within walking distance. Overall highly recommend this motel.

This motel was recommended to us by i-site. We stayed in a few Bella Vista Motels throughout our NZ trip. This motel is by far the best one. The room was very clean and neat. Laundry facilities was free including the dryer. Wifi was very good and free. Location was great, 5 minutes drive to town. Highly recommended!

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
