We arrived later on Friday evening and we couldn't have been made more welcome. The hosts were really lovely and couldn't do enough for us. We were in a king size studio and it had everything in it we could want for. It was really comfortable and we would absolutely go back there.

We booked the room an hour before arrival. Murray was very helpful on the phone and later when we arrived he came to our room to deliver us a fan and to show us how the sky tv worked. All the while being very friendly and he seemed happy to help. Good value for money.

Comfortable bed, room cleaned well and staff really friendly and helpful. Location is good with just a short walk to the lake and town, so not noisy as some lake front motels are. Will look at booking again as was reasonable for busy long weekend.

Business trip and the height of summer holidays, second to last room. Very small room, lucky I didn't bring my cat to swing round, but very clean and tidy. Very warm night and no fan!? Windows open only slightly with security stays, and with curtains drawn not much chance of a breeze. Never mind... I'd still go back, especially in... More

Although not on the lakefront, the Bella Vista Motel is a very handy part of Taupo to be in. Only 10 minutes walk into town, and the same to the waterfront. In fact it could be said to be an advantage, because you're not buffeted by the constant winds coming off the lake. We found the rooms comfortable and the... More

We stayed here for one night while visiting the area. Our room was pleasant, clean and comfortable with good facilities. We were able to wash our clothes at the laundry facilities and the manager was very helpful. The bath was really lovely after a dip in the lake. We hope to visit again soon.

This was one of four Bella Vista motels we used during our road trip in New Zealand. This one matched the standard of all the others. Decent sized, clean accommodation with the usual features you would expect in a motel; nice sized bed with spotless linen and towels, fridge, cooking facilities on-site parking. Friendly, helpful management happy to pass on... More

Convenient to all amenities a couple of blocks from the centre of town this motel is ideal for a short stay. Room was clean and all facilities needed for a short stay were present. Management was helpful; a very efficient place to stay.
