Stayed there for 1 night enroute to Auckland from Wellington. Arrived there 2200 Friday night 1hr before they closed the Desert Road due to snow. Lovely touch for the owners to have the heater on in the room and milk so we entered a warm room. Although the room is small it was a great size for one nights accommodation.... More

Have just stayed for 3 nights at the Bella Vista, very comfortable room with great amenities. Lovely hosts who were extremely friendly and welcomed my dog like their own. Would happily stay again and hope to sometime in the future. Great value.

Stayed for two nights en route further North. Good sized room, comfortable bed, decent bathroom, fine WiFi. Handy for wandering into the town for shops and places to eat. Owners were lovely - very helpful with lots of local advice. I managed to leave some stuff behind when I left and they kept hold of it for me so I... More

It's a roof over your head. Basic room and pretty compact in size. If you're a light sleeper - bring earplugs. The noise from the car park and other units is pretty loud with the paper things walls. The rooms are poorly lit and you certainly wouldn't want to be spending too much time at this place. Go out and... More

We stayed here for a night on our way to Wanderlust. It was a pleasant stay. Room was tidy and clean. Not much space around the bed but it was ok. TV reception good. Bathroom spacious with a great shower. The grounds/gardens are well kept. Free limited WiFi, wasn't great. Parking right outside. Great for a short stay. Would stay... More

This is the second Bella Vista we have stayed at, and was identical to the one at Rotorua. The big plus with the chain is that they are all within walking distance of the town, and the daily room clean up is superb. Well priced vis-à-vis competitors.

Warm welcome, lovely people, clean unit although small. Paid extra for a King exec studio with a large bed and cooking facilities. Found the camping stove under the sink and the King bed was two old singles pushed together. A rubbish bin in the kitchen would go a long way. Clean, nice people, average rooms. Wifi doesn't work.
