After a 4 hour drive to the unreal Bay of Islands we came across Casa Bella Motel. This place is so charming and quaint. Check-in was speedy and personal. We were taken to our room and explained how everything works. The bonus is free parking and right outside your room. The motel is older in design with a Mediterranean feel.... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. The motel is basic but clean and has all facilities you need. As my suitcase got stuck in hongkong on the way to NZ, the owner was so kind to borrow us some suncream. And, he received the suitcase and out it in out room. We would stay here again :-).

the manager was very helpful and friendly and the room was very comfortable. There are some amazing shops within an easy stroll and in general it is a lovely town to visit. Highly recommended... I would rather have had a cooked breakfast though

While on holiday from Sydney staying with family, we had a two day break for some r&r and stayed at the Casa Bella. The staff were very welcoming and friendly, our room was clean and spacious. Will definitely recommend this motel to friends and family

Pleasant stay. Room was clean and comfortable.friendly staff, and good spa! Pool needed a clean, but it is off season and it looked like they were doing maintainence on it. Overall I enjoyed my stay there and was great as a stop over. Nice and quiet.

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry that your wi-fi experience wasn't optimal. Usually it is fine but sometimes the modem loses it's marbles and needs resetting. If I had been aware of the problem I may have been able to remedy it. Thanks again, Gary More

I chose this motel because it was just off the main highway, so I though it would be quiet - and it was. We did hear a couple of car doors, but nothing to disturb the peace. The room was clean and tidy, the bed comfortable, and the hosts very warm and friendly.
