Stayed here with my family at last minute on the weekend. Fitting in 5 was never a problem and we received wonderful hospitality! Would come back in a flash! Hosts were great for sourcing information. Thank you :)

Lovely service, clean facilities, free wifi, and fairly modern. The studio room was a little small with little space to put a full sized suitcase but this was only a minor thing. Would recommend for a quick stay in Whangerei.

I have stayed at the Bella Vista Whangarei twice during the past month. What warm and welcoming hospitality! Over this past weekend, the weather was atrocious; cold, wet, & miserable. I returned to the motel very late in the afternoon to find the curtains drawn, lights and heating in my room were on and the room was welcoming and very... More

This motel was spotless, with comfortable beds and spacious bathrooms. The location on State Highway One was surprisingly quiet for our room at the back of the complex. The shower pressure was impressive, and the bathroom had a lot of space. Our host was very knowledgable and made some helpful recommendations about our trip further up north. The location is... More

Very compact, comfortable room and bed. Rooms are nicely appointed with a good size tele on the wall! We were well back on the property and did not hear any road noise from SH1 and slept very well. While situated on SH1 it's only a short walk to town.

I stayed there for one very long night. Unfortunately there was also a rally on the same day and half the drivers and their cars were also at the motel. After the crew stayed up most of the night drinking and being very loud at 6am they decided to start their rally cars and make sure they were warmed up... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your views. Regretfully as owners we were away from the property on this night and apologise for the lack of sleep you endured. A firm approach from management was exercised for the following evening but sadly we were disappointed with the noise level created by these guests. We had given very clear... More

We stayed for one night here. As advertised, very new Motel. The room was well equipped with good facilities and very clean and tidy. Easy to locate, as is on the main highway (SH1). As you would expect with this location, gets very noisy when traffic builds up. Good location for a short stay.

We stayed here only overnight, arriving late after driving from Auckland airport, and leaving by 8.30. But the room was very well appointed and scrupulously clean, and had everything you need for a comfortable few days if you wanted. I was a little concerned about traffic noise, but need not have been. Didn't hear a thing! Only met one staff... More

Stayed here on arriving in New Zealand after moving across the world. Through the jet lag and big emotions, everything settled and turned out just right, thanks to the very comfortable room (from kitchen to shower to comfy bed); but it's really the hotel staff that made it great. The room service lady showed incredible act of kindness by bringing... More
