In retail I pride myself on good customer service, and I expect anyone else working in customer service to do the same. I noticed and enjoyed the high levels of attention to detail and enthusiasm in the staff at Bella Vista Motel. My room was always tidy when I got back from my job and usually enjoyed complimentary cookies when... More

Travelling to Tutukaka and getting late, so decided to stay here. We had Unit 1 on the ground floor, next to the office. Even though motel is on the main road, we didn't hear any noise at all. The room itself, catering for disabled people, was nearly brand new. Don't know if room had been refurbished or the motel itself... More

Check in was very efficient ad we were offered fresh milk for coffee/tea if we wanted some. It was quite cold when we arrived however the heater had been switched on prior to our arrival so the room temperature was fine. The room was spotlessly clean and the bathroom was very good. Decent size shower and good amenities. The downsides... More

Stayed here 2 nights, rooms were very clean, everything in top working order. Free Wifi, free parking. No road traffic noise at night stayed in Rm 1. Hosts were pleasant and helpful. Easy 5min walk to our venue, which saved on an $8 all day public parking! Excellent overall rating.

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.

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
