“Fantasic location, fast internet, very clean, friendly people.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

We stayed for 3 nights , and found the bella tuscany to be a lovely hotel.
The owners Keith and Rae went out of their way to help us out with places to go, and recommended the mission winery as a place to visit, which we did and had a great time.
Very clean and private units, and a good night sleep was had.
Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Ask for a one bedroom unit as you will get a private courtyard, and all units have air conditioning...

I would sincerely like to thank Keith and Rae for their wonderful hospitality. We have just returned from spending three nights. The rooms was ideal, the location was perfect as we did not have a car but the bus service was right outside the door. Keith and Rae were very considerate, I had two children and they would wait for us to emerge every morning before they would service the room. Also, they would share their local knowledge to ensure we were able to enjoy the Hawkes Bay. Highly recommend especially if you have kids, great value for money.

We only stayed one night and wished we were there longer. Although there were no views or attractions right near the Motor Lodge it was only a short drive to many wonderful places. The owners were very friendly and helpful and recommended that we drive to Te Mata Peak lookout. I would not have known about it otherwise and, while it was one of the scariest roads I have driven on, the views were truly spectacular. We visited the Silky Oak Chocolate Factory and enjoyed a delicious lunch there. The Mission Winery was amazing, despite being a non-drinker, as it is steeped in history. We loved the Art Deco buildings in Napier and would definitely stay at the Bella Tuscany again as it was one of the nicest places we stayed in NZ!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 7 which had twin single beds in the lounge/dining/kitchen area as well as a separa...

We just spent a night at the Bella Tuscany in Napier. What a wonderful little hotel. Our room was small, but so well equipped we were in awe of the detail that the owners have gone to. We had a charming outdoor patio where we drank tea and ate breakfast. The owners were extremely nice and helpful. I highly recommend this hotel.

Great motel with lovely staff to look after you. Spacious rooms with good heat pumps and air conditioning, needed in Napier. Rooms a little dark if you were staying in all day but ideal for those planning to spend time out and about. Will be staying there again, great value for money.

Room Tip: If you dont like road noise, just ask for a room at the back.

I would love to Thank Keith and Rae Burrows, for their hospitality on Saturday 17th September 2011..
With the World Cup season underway here in New Zealand, we had a last minute dash to find urgent accommodation ASAP, to be exact, we only booked two units the night before we got there, i was shocked to here that they were the last two as because Napier was fully booked for the Canada vs France game..
We booked Room 11 ( LOVE IT) the mirror in the bathroom was too DIE FOR... every woman's dream to have something like that! i loved the unit, its cosy, warm and VERY clean.. i had the best nights sleep there.. thank you sooo much!!

We also hired out Room 4 (the other group) they loved their rooms just as much as we loved ours!

You guys are very central, close to a lot of shopping centers and yummy cafes!!

Cant wait for my relaxing weekend in January, already have decided to come back here

Thanks Guys!! Krystal and Kenny

I regularly travel to Napier on business and since staying at Bella Tuscany I have not stayed elsewhere. The hosts are friendly and personable, the rooms are nice and always spotless. The location is handy to everything. I also like the fact I can park my car directly in front of my room. I will continue to keep coming back.
