Stayed here for 1 night based on other good reviews. The main points to note are that it is very cheap and very clean. The room had all the amenities you need and is only a 10 minute walk into Paihia. Very impressed and would definitely stay here again and recommend to others!

I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the motel for the price I paid. The room was clean and tidy, the bed was comfortable. Within a short walk of the amenities in Paihia. I didn't try the spa, but it was available to use for free. I was given 1GB of wifi.

Lovely motel and so are the owners. Stayed for three nights, and took advantage of what the motel had to offer. We took the double kayak for a paddle in the ocean, went for morning swims in the pool, evening spas after exploring, and played tennis in the neighbouring courts. There is also a BBQ. We had a queen studio... More

The staff here are so pleasant and helpful. We only had a small room but it was perfect for us! The rooms were very clean and comfortable. It would have been great if the hotel had a bit more of a view but it's situated within walking distance to Paihia centre. Great value.

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
