“Enjoyed our stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

We stayed in a clean and functional studio, with a large comfortable bed. This was well suited to our one night stay, and was priced very reasonably ($140) for Taupo in the peak season. The motel is in a fairly quiet street and is solidly constructed - even though it was full, we heard very little noise from the other guests. Our room was very clean, and the shower was good. We were checked in by a very helpful and friendly owner, who offered help with anything we might want to know about Taupo.

We booked Bella Vista in Taupo for a small family holiday. Upon arrival we discovered that we had somehow managed to book a room that only had a Queen bed and no single for our 2.5 year old as we thought we had. As it was Easter weekend and their larger rooms were fully booked the hosts were apologetic and kindly offered a porta cot for our son ( thankfully he's not a large 2year old). Having the porta cot in a Queen room made things a little cosy but it was fine. The room was modern, clean and had everything we needed. The staff were very helpful and friendly! We stayed three nights and it was a comfortable break away! I would recommend Bella Vista to others and we will be back.

We arrived early but that wasn't a problem. This was the third Bella Vista motel we stayed in during our trip, and the only one with a bedside table on each side of the bed! Our car had been splashed with cement-spray shortly before our arrival at the motel, and the owner very kindly allowed us to use the hose to wash the car clean. It was much appreciated. Very clean, and just a short walk to the city centre. Great laundry facilities, and great wi-fi. Would happily stay again.

This place is clean, well kitted out, and an easy 10 minute stroll from town/5 min stroll to lake front. The best thing about it is the family running it, who are welcoming and very helpful and knowledgeable about the area.
Would recommend if you are looking for a good value and comfy base but plan to be out and about doing activities.

It was a good stay, just a suggestion to either dim the outside lights or to make the curtains longer. We had problems with the light coming from under the curtains, which weren't long enough. A bit of noise came from people going up and down the steps that were outside our room. Other than that the room was nice and the shower was good.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the steps.

we had to go urgently to Wellington and needed to make a last minute booking. I found the Bella Vista on the web and called in for a reservation. As we were not going to be arriving before 10 pm I asked owner if OK. She said they would stay up for us. a nice welcoming touch as we were sure to have a room and it drives more relaxing. we stayed in a small studio. it was clean and just what we needed for a short stop over, leaving VERY early again the next morning.
