We stayed for 2 nights at Bella Vista Motel and felt quite at home by the time we left... The bath room was cleverly designed & functional, main room clean & bright. We enjoyed the service, nothing was too hard. When we had trouble waiting for the laundry room to clear, Murray offered to do "mind" the laundry for us,... More

Strategically located right on SH1, that leads from New Zealand's top to its very bottom. We booked a slightly upgraded room for my birthday, which is a bit more spacious with a large bed, good lighting, built-in desk with convenient power supply, nicely carpeted with attractive patterned tiles in the kitchenette and bathroom. Kitchenette contains a good sized refrigerator, microwave,... More
