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. STAFF: Upon arrival the staff was a little curt (I think she may have been running late for an appointment), but the check-out... More

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

We stayed two nights and again really happy with the Bella Vista standards of accommodation and service. Nothing is too much trouble for the hosts. Everything you need is there. The Bella Vista is in a great location for walks along the beautiful shore line and the small town centre with its lovely art deco buildings and features. If you... More

We had a smaller upstairs room, queen sized bed, but no air conditioning which would have helped on the very balmy night we stayed. Very clean and tidy, well maintained. Guest laundry with 1 dryer and 1 washer. Room contained a microwave and small fridge. Free wifi. Hotel is one block from the sea front, and 2 blocks in the... More

We stayed at Bella Vista Napier for two nights in January 2014. The room was compact but had everything we needed. The mini kitchen had a very modern stainless steel kettle and toaster and lots of plates, bowls, utensils etc to make our own breakfasts and lunches. The bathroom had a heated towel rack and a decent sized vanity. The... More

We ended up spending four nights in the Bella Vista Napier due to a mistake by our Travel Agent. My initial disappointment at not having a room with a sea view was soon replaced by great satisfaction with our suite at the Bella Vista. The spacious main area contained a comfortable queen size bed, table and chairs, tv & desk,... More

We had the Super King Spa room and it was very comfortable for our 6 night stay. Almost in the centre of Napier and handy to the waterfront and all the activities going on down there. Within walking distance from the excellent shops in the city. Restaurants are in great abundance at West Shore.

Thank you. Glad you found the Westshore/Ahuriri area, another example of how you can turn a working area, into a super recreational space to be enjoyed by everyone. The Water is always a great draw card, who doesn't love to spend time there! Napier is well served with place to eat..from Casual Bistro to something more special, we have lots... More

Lovely motel with attention to detail. Free access to the Internet and Sky. Great bed and an awesome shower. Efficient heating. Central location to restaurants (RSA is opposite), Marine Parade and the CBD. We will be back for longer next time.

The motel is well placed being 5 mins walk from the centre of Napier and just one block back from the beach front. A good location for the 4 nights I stayed.
