Met my Mum at this motel & stayed in a family unit. Very friendly reception staff & the unit was very clean & comfortable. One of the plusses we found, was they give you a small carton of milk, not those little plastic containers that other places seem to favour. The complimentary shampoos etc supplied, were really nice. We were... More

Better internal fit out than many hotels, lovely helpful front desk, and an awesome spa bath that the kids loved. You can't go wrong here. As my husband said, it's the little things: the fresh milk they gave us, the plunger in the room with decent coffee, really nice soap etc in the bathroom and super clean and new looking.... More

This was the highlight of our 10day holiday.here at Taupo.NZ. Fairly close to ski fields and white Water Rafting. We had a great view from our room and would definitely stay here again next time. The skiing was even better than the South Island. It was about 5hours drive to Wellington and just south of Rotorua.

Four of us stayed here recently went we went to Taupo to run the Half Marathon. Very friendly service and nothing was too much trouble. They even washed and dried our running gear for us - and supplied us with extra towels as they knew we would be needing additional showers (after the run and because it was very wet).... More

Stayed one night en route to Rotorua. Clean tidy rooms and helpful staff made the short stay excellent value for money. Used the laundry which was good value and took on board the advice for local pubs, shops and sights. All in all another great stay in a Bella Vista - well done

The Bella Vista motels may not be pretty but they do what it says on the tin.This motel is great value, and great location - just a 10 minute walk down the road and you're in the heart of the town. Very well equipped, incredibly clean, comfortable beds and spacious rooms with a small sitting area. Only negative comment would... More

This motel has it all. The young family staff greeted us warmly and showed us to the room. It was spotless, felt brand new, and even had towel warmers. In a quiet area but still within a nice walking distance of the restaurants and clubs. Would definitely stay at this small chain of motels again.

We stayed at Bella Vista on our way down to Napier and on our way back to Auckland. The rooms we stayed in were clean, modern and comfortable. It was in easy walking distance to all the restaurants and bars and very close to the Lake. The owners were really friendly and happy to help us out when we needed... More

Stayed here for one night as seeing Taupo lake the next day before continuing on to Napier! Arriving late evening after a long drive greeted by a friendly face who was very helpful Great night sleep, only issue was we think there was an open sewage plant near by as there was an awful smell. Possibly we were just unlucky... More

You always know what you are getting when you stay at a bella vista and this one is no exception. Friendly host. Clean and pleasant room. Good shower and comfy bed. This is the first time we've stayed in a small studio and it was small but perfectly acceptable for an overnight stay. Recommend bella vista.
