We chose this motel as it was close to the stadium where we were attending the Ride The Wave.
There are an abundance of fast food outlets close by, this has pluses and minuses, handy for food but noisy first thing in the morning, with delivery's and rubbish removal. A party in the flats opposite also detracted from a good nights sleep, though no fault of the motel. The bed was so, so with foam chip pillows also a negative. The toilet seat had to be held up otherwise it snapped down in an alarming fashion. Even the lid had a nasty habit of self closing when least expected.
That said the place was clean and for the most part reasonably comfortable, the staff were very helpful. Maybe we were expecting a bit much as we had an excellent night at the Asure Timaru the previous night.

Four of us spent five days at the Bella Vista around Christmas 2013. Any bookings were made on the spot with no fuss and a smile. I only had to mention an interest in seakayaking and Robin was on the phone investigating all aspects, even down to whether they could drop me off at a spot convenient to my hubby and friends, who'd pick me up in the rental car.
The atmosphere was great. It reminded me of staying with friends, it was so relaxed and comfortable.

We have stayed at Bella Vista Dunedin three times in the past few months. Robyn and John have been consistently helpful each time - accommodated our post-earthquake (Christchurch) jitters about being any higher than the ground floor - and helped us with information about our holiday destination at Stewart Island. There is a real family feel about this motel, and we highly recommend it. All the usual of clean, tidy, spacious, well appointed with mini cooking stove and microwave etc., but it is the friendly service that make it special. We will return!!

Room Tip: Ask Robyn and John for what you want when you are booking

Spent two nights in Dunedin at Bella Vista, travelling with two teenage girls they picked the motel after driving the length of the main road, twice! Being located near Mcdonalds, pizza, KFC & a restaurant/bar we sold!
Checking in we learnt they were out of family studio rooms. Robyn was so friendly & helpful we ended up booking two rooms, to the delight of the girls. With internet access, Sky TV, food close by, I didnt have to worry about the girls as I relaxed in the spa bath!!
Both rooms were spacious, very clean & well equipted. Hosts were wonderful.
Highly reccommend to all. Thanks again Robyn & John
