4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This motel is located near enough to the city but without all the hassles of juggling the traffic. Great little beaches within easy walking distance. Airport, shopping centre and supermarkets a short drive away. Our unit was clean and very comfortable, and Richard was most helpful. We look forward to returning here later in the year. Parking excellent

We needed a motel near the airport but not under the flight path. The location on Evans Bay Rd is very good as it provides two routes downtown. The pretty route through to Oriental Bay following the coastline or the more direct (but traffic-jammed) route through the Mt Victoria Tunnel. You should have a car in Wellington if you are... More

Nice big unit, spacious and clean, good sized bathroom with heater. Nice quality towels. Friendly owners, very helpful. Not far to Te Papa or in other direction, Weta Cave. Plenty of car parking. Only 1 restaurant within walking distance.

We chose this nice Motel for its convenient location for dropping off our Rental Car at Miramar before departing from Wellington Airport. It is an economical option given its location - so convenient to the City and the scenic bay drive around to Oriental Bay and Te Papa. Surprisingly we found the Bella Vista to be super clean and very... More

A really handy discovery for a motel close to Wellington CBD without the hassles of inner city car travel and parking. Usual Bella Vista set up - modestly sized rooms - but really friendly owners, good parking and super clean units. A 4o min walk to Te Papa along the coast, Oriental Parade is less - so a great spot.... More

This motel is well placed for getting in and out of the city. There is a nice walk along the shore opposite and two eateries within walking distance. The owners of the motel are very friendly and took great paind to ensure we were comfortable during our stay. would recommend this motel.

We really enjoyed our stay.We were wanting somewhere quiet away from the city.Bella Vista was perfect as it is situated at Evans Bay which is really nice.Bus goes right past to get you to the city or shops at Kilbirnie.Hosts Richard and Christine looked after a couple of requests and were very friendly and welcoming.

After a long day of driving, we were looking forward to getting a good nights sleep in a motel that had very good reviews on Trip Advisor. However, to say that we were disappointed is an understatement. Apart from the stained duvet and outer covers, we both felt like we should have slept in the car to get a better... More

Hotel was in an excellent location as we were going to Weta Workshop first thing and the Te Papa later in the day, the staff were helpful, except we were told there was no free WIFI and there was. The beds were comfortable but the motel is in need of an upgrade as a bit tired, and the rooms very... More

This place is ok to crash last minute or just passing through. Room was very clean but slightly cramped, wouldn't be a good stay for a family. Does have kitchenette, bed was very comfortable, hotel was quiet, free parking friendly service.
