Frik and Marise were very warm and welcoming. The room was spotless and surprisingly quite. A good variety of tea and coffee was available. No complaints about the bed which was very comfortable. It would have been very easy to have extended my stay longer.

Room Tip: Ground floor convenient

Bella Vista motels are pretty much the same throughout the country but what sets them apart is the attitude of the Manager. The Manager at Gisborne is one of the best who extended a very warm welcome and was most obliging for the small needs I had for an overnight stay.
Very comfortable and well appointed room, comfortable bed - very quiet night's sleep.

Very functional motel. Has everything you need. Extremely clean which is always good. Staff friendly. Well placed for business and a quick drive into town for restaurants. Surprisingly quiet given it is on a reasonably busy road.

On behalf of our Indoors Bowls Team we would like to say a huge thank you for your hospitality over the weekend when we stayed at your complex.

From the time we arrived to our rooms all closed up with a light on and heater going to the day we departed and when our bus driver came back to collect his shoes that he left there and you said you were going to bring them to him.

That is what we call “going the extra mile”.

Hope to be able to use your facility again in the future.

Kind Regards

Stayed here with work a few weeks ago, nice clean accomodation but the studio room I had room 13 was pretty compact great for one night. Have stayed here in the past and had upstairs room which are very generous in size with spa bath etc so guess i must have been spoilt previously. Bella Vista Gisborne is nicely located close to town on the main road, a short walk to town and dining options 15 or 20 min walk,beautiful beach nearby . good value
