I Have stayed in many motel and hotels around the world and new Zealand and the vista is one of the best motels I say in .
Peter the owner will go out of his why to make your stay happy and enjoyable . .
The rooms are nice and very clean ,most have good kitchens with full sized ovens ,the showers are great to (no water saving shower heads in this motel , only full pressure ones) .
The on site Restaurant really good .
If your room has no microwave or fan and you need one just ask peter and he will get one .
i stay in this motel regularly when i work in Wairoa .
Sure there are newer more modern motels in new Zealand but for a small rural town with only 5000 people i think the vista is the best :)
