Lovely clean and tidy room also very spacious all we needed for our one night in Whangarei. Nice and handy to the central city, thought it may have been noisey due to it's close proximity to the main road but no it was lovely and quiet.

Very nice hotel in a very convenient location, close to local town and central for loads of attractions. Made to feel very welcome by the very nice owners, room was clean and spacious. This hotel is excellent value for money. Many thanks for all the trouble you went to to locate us when we left a wedding present behind. You... More

Clean and modern room. Pleasant and helpful check-in process. Our 1st stop after arrival into Auckland from overseas. Lots to see in the immediate local area and it would be recommended to stay 2 nights and enjoy a more leisurely exploration of the nearby beaches. In room wifi was fast and easy to access. The gardens at the old Quarry... More

Whangarei has a lot to offer and after driving through it, we decided to come back for a night's stay. Motel is conveniently located by the highway, but it is a bit of a hike to the downtown business area. Room was clean and comfortable and on site laundry was a nice touch. Lots of counter space made was a... More

Situated on the busy S1 road with ample off-road parking. The manager was welcoming and the rooms were clean, well decorated and very well equiped although for anybody staying for a length of time, storage space is a bit limited. The motel has no restaurant although they will provide a Continental Breakfast (delivered to your room the night before). The... More

On arrival, received a very warm welcome from friendly host. Grounds are tidy and very well kept and even the entry level room type is perfect. Modern bathroom, clean room and decent facilites. Would highly recommend for anyone wanting the basics done well and at a good rate.

In Whangarei for one day on business with a colleague. The room was very clean and spacious, however if you need wifi for work then I cannot recommend this place. It was unreliable, and you only get 200mb free which isn't even enough to open a couple of pdfs depending on the size. I must say though that the bathroom... More

Thank you for your feedback. Once we were advised at reception, by a couple of guests staying that there appeared to be a problem with the wifi we notified the technician who has been on the property to reset the channel. Internet is always a source of frustration as it is not our area of expertise and we rely on... More

Nice place and comfortable rooms. I stayed here on a business trip and so part of that having internet in the room is nice. Unfortunately the WiFi in the room I was in was pretty poor. I connected well enough but the connection was patchy. I work in IT so i knew what i was looking for also (just to... More

I stayed here for business. Great room, wonderfully comfortable bed and a good rate. The staff were warm, welcoming and very helpful. Considering it is on the main road it was very quiet. Ten minute walk into town for breakfast and a stroll round the marina.

The Bella Vista was easy to find, had plenty of off street parking, a quiet garden area to sit in the sun, and the units were well designed and appointed. The motel was in easy walking distance to the centre of the city and the owners were very helpful and friendly. I would happily stay here on my next visit.
