This is a terrific motel, truly best in class. My family and I were warmly welcomed and well looked after. Our room was impeccably clean and a lot of thought had been given to how to make guests comfortable and not want for anything. Decent bed, all the necessary cooking and eating equipment to make simple meals possible, good heating,... More

The room was cozy, basic and clean, had a spacious bathroom and was located at the heart of the city. Even though Bella Vista didn't have the biggest rooms, I particularly appreciated our small kitchen complete with cutlery, plates, a mini-fridge, a kettle, and a microwave. Our room was close to the parking lot, so any noise from the road... More

Very friendly and helpful staff both in person and on the phone. Wouldn't hesitate staying again as in my opinion good service goes a long way. We had a very clean and tidy room, although it was a little small it had everything we needed. It's about a 20 minute walk from the city centre but not really an issue... More

We only stayed one night for a brief visit to Christchurch. The room was the usual small Bella Vista room. Nice and quiet and very clean but basic. The staff were really friendly and could offer lots of advice. We had to drive to anything, not really walking distance to anywhere.

Stayed at the Bella Vista Motel for 2 nights with my wife in March 2014. The room was comfortable and clean. The staff were friendly. We ordered breakfast in our room and enjoyed that. Handy for restaurants and within walking distance of the city centre.

Flew down early in the morning to have a short visit to Christchurch to see the extent of damage to the city. It was sad to see what damage the earthquake has done, affecting so many lives. I managed to book in early, change and set off on my 'look and see' of the city centre. After a number of... More

We had three nights at this motel in Bealey Ave, Christchurch. From the moment we arrived, it exuded a sense of home. Comfortable room with a cosy atmosphere. It was close to a hotel, which served top meals, and a few other facilities were nearby. The rooms were very clean and the staff were meticulous in keeping it like that.... More

Stayed here while on business, and the room was perfect for the one night. Had a bit of a conversation with the staff who showed me the earthquake damage around the motel. Still very evident, but safe to stay at. The room was a basic Queen bed, flat screen Tv, and Hot drink making facilities, the shower was amazing, one... More

It is not exceptional, but it is cheery, well-run, clean & staffed by very nice folks. I liked the walking distance to downtown & restaurants. I was happy that I travel lightly since I was on the second floor. But the little kitchen was handy & the hosts' delivered a substantial, fresh breakfast that evening so I could get off... More
