Arrived at 1am, and easily got our key to an apartment that permitted 4 adult stay. Elizabeth operates a friendly business. Motel is relatively close to airport and car hire firms, but not close enough for walking. After our 1 week tour of NZ south, we returned to spend a further night before flying out. Affordability and friendliness won our... More

We have been staying at this motel for many years and enjoying it's excellent location and friendly staff. Well worth a mention is their car storage if you're flying out for a holiday and don't feel like donating a small fortune to the airport, also it has a good Wi-Fi service. Mostly we like the comfortable rooms.

Rather tired motel, old room décor. Was close to the airport and within walking distance of restaurants but I thought rather overpriced in comparison to other hotels I stayed in in the area. Staff were friendly and good wifi. But I wouldn't stay here again at the price I paid.

$195 a night for a 2 bedroom unit. The fan heater could not keep the place close to warm. This is a very tired old motel. Have to say I felt completely scammed by the individuals who left good reviews and the management who clearly know better. As I reread other reviews there is a pattern here of motel owner... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. Belle Bonne Motel is under the new management since the 6th of June 2013. We have been 90% occupied since we took over last year up to the end of April 2014. Belle Bonne Motel is not 5 star motel. However, it is a solid, cosy, clean and comfortable motel with all cooking... More

Following my previous review (months ago) I received a phone call today from the business owner. He started by saying that I had left something at the hotel and continued by saying that my "lies" on tripadvisor were "absolute sh**". He added that I was a "low life" and how dare I leave a bad review. So add to my... More

We recently stayed 6 nights at Belle Bonne and found the unit ideal for a longer stay. The unit was quiet and roomy, it was very clean and tidy and all amenities were provided to ensure our stay was most comfortable. The full kitchen is certainly a bonus, along with the fast Wifi and excellent service. The only complaint we... More

We stayed 3 nights, 3 adults and 2 kids. We found the place very homely and nice. Service was excellent. Trampoline and swings were enjoyed by our kids and the balcony was great size. It was everything we needed and we found it very reasonably priced. We stayed there Feb 2013. Thank you :)

Our room had clearly not been cleaned recently with cob webs across the room, thick dust everywhere and the musty smell that suggested it hadn't had fresh air for years. $145 per night was definitely too much! Not recommended at all.

KB, We absolutely refute your claims of the unit no 8 that it was dirty, smelly , had thick layers of dust and cobwebs everywhere. I know how fastidious our cleaners are especially with vacuuming on every departure, even if guests have stayed only one night. As for dust, well the cleaning ladies go over the top with their dusting... More

We needed somewhere for the 6 of us to rest our heads on the last night of our 2 week holiday.
