The reception was helpful and efficient. The room was well appointed with a large bathroom and adequate kitchen. There is a heater on the wall which was needed as it got quite cold. There is a McDonalds next door that is open late and other fast food restaurants nearby.

Nice average room. Be aware the only heating is a wall fan heater on a thermostat set into the wall right next to the bed so if you cant put up with the noise you have to turn off at night. Unfortunately small tour coaches are allowed to park in car park so this is a problem in the morning...

This motel appears to be in the car park of the McDonalds next door! It's clean, comfortable and near to restaurants, including fast food such as McDonalds (next door). Free parking outside our room which was handy for bringing cases in and out. It's not luxury, but neither is it awful. It's ideal for one night's accommodation whilst touring New...

This was our third Bellavista experience on our 5 week New Zealand trip, and again, we were not disapointed. Friendly staff, clean Queen Studio, which means a kitchenette with kitchen sink to wash your dishes in, very nice large bathroom, spotless of course, and enough cooking equipment for the microwave. We usually eat a large salad, with may be a...

You can do better than coming here. Clean enough, and pleasant bloke on the desk, but way too expensive for what is on offer. Having the soap and shampoo together as one in the shower dispenser tells you that this is a cheap offer - I have never in my life seen this. Along with no conditioner. So you need...

Friendly host and extra clean room with comfortable bed. Close to shops and restaurants. Good off street parking. We had a studio room which was very small, so really only suitable to sleep the night in and make a cup of tea.
