“Great Location, Clean comfortable rooms”

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2007

This motel is located on a main road - and is therefore very easy to find. Reception staff were helpful in giving us ideas of places to visit, eat etc during our short stay.
Room was quite small, though had a kitchen area and drop-down table for eating at. Bathroom reasonable size.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2005

Clean well appointed room but slightly too small. Nice table and chairs outside room on walkway but you'll need to bring your own breakfast if you want to enjoy this facility. Hotelier was very helpful and invited us to park there for the day after we checked out.

Motel is about 20 minutes walk from downtown.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2004

They call these "motels" but they really have all the comforts of a regular hotel. AC, heat, refrigerator, microwave, nice bathroom, cable tv and helpful owners. They are small rooms but they are modern and super clean and consistent in nearly every city. We stayed in the bella vista in Christchurch, queenstown and Dunedin on the south island and it was the same everywhere. They are usually about a 10 minute walk outside of the city center, but it is a nice way to see local life. They are also inexpensive which makes them even more worth it. I recommend the rooms for couples or singles. For a family you may need extra rooms.
