Friendly at reception at first. OK room. Limited WiFi. Calling reception at 10:45pm lead to a poor customer service experience. This is not a hostel, this is a motel, therefore a minimum in communication politeness is to be expected when the customer calls in for help politely. There is no air-con, and the sun warms this property alot, which can... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our business. At Bella Vista Napier, we offer 1000MB (1GB) of FREE Internet access, (Cable or WiFi) per day., if the allocation is exhausted, the service will stop. On this occasion we provided a second 1000MB Free of Charge. Our reception is open from 7.30am to 8.30pm daily. We are a husband... More

We booked a room to stay while visiting family. Everything was so easy. We booked online, our room was ready and it was clean. The owners were absolutely lovely and made our stay there hassle free. Will definitely be staying here again!

We booked the compact room to stay 1 night while we attended a friend's wedding. We found the room to be very clean and tidy, plus well equipped with everything we needed. My only gripe would be that the be was very hard. The pillows on the bed were very comfortable. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating and i... More

We stayed 3 nights at Bella Vista and really enjoyed it. We requested an upgrade to the room we had booked and the Manager Ian was very accommodating. Our room was spotlessly clean, bed comfortable and location is great.

Easy walking distance even to those who are less active. After that comes cleansiness and service, place was neat and clean and service good,... More

We stayed at the Bella Vista Motel in Napier - it was just a random booking. John & Jenny Colvin are the hosts and they couldn't do enough to help. We wanted a downstairs room which they organized for us even though they were close to full. The room size was excellent, all facilities were there from coffee and tea... More

LOCATION: Within walking distance from the beach, dining, cafes and the art deco downtown. TIDINESS: Aceptable STLYE: Compact, traditional but showing signs of wear. The room size may be an issue for those travelling with excessive luggage.

Thank you for your review, following your stay late last year. You are quite right, Bella Vista Napier is situated very close to the centre of Town, and all things associated with our Art Deco heritage. It would be most unusual in NZ for a Motel to provide only one type of unit...We have 8 different sizes, offering a variety... More

A nice tidy and very clean room. A little small but was ok for my needs. The kitchen equipment was outstanding and super clean. The only little gripe was the layout of the room; the tv was placed at the left hand side of the bed so you had to sit at an unusual angle to watch, you couldn't lean... More
