Reviewed February 5, 2011

Had a lovely stay in Gisborne - made all the nicer by our hosts who pointed us to some attractions - this wasn't our first stay, but we were guided to the Gisborne Wine Centre (where we tried 5 local wines for just $12 - GREAT value) and Fettucine Brothers (where we had a delicious meal). The motel was clean and modern - and free internet too!

Welcoming reception, clean, relaxing, well serviced for our requirements. Great parking for motor bikes, ideal location to walk to town. Definitely a place to stay if you are wanting that extra obliging service. Will definitely recommend to others. Thank you Bella Vista for a wonderful stay, shame it wasn't longer. Next time!!!!

We arrived in Gisborne unsure what we should see and do. The staff at Bella Vista provided excellent advice about walking tours and attractions, along with maps and brochures. The best advice was where to find a off-the-main-street parking spot so that we could enjoy the sights without delay. We found both the Bella Vista and Gisborne exceeded our expectations.

Stayed here 2 nights on my North Island round trip.Professional and friendly check in.Was interested in the city map and got tips for
shopping and dinning.
Very clean Queen room with shower and toilet.
The room seems to be quite new and everything is in top condition.
Had a very good sleep on a comfortable mattress.
As already mentioned there is no air conditioning.Since the max temperature were 23 degrees in mid march this wasn't a problem for me.
The internet access is free(ask for the cable on check in)and it has very good up and download speeds !

my hubby and I stayed here for one night in Dec 09 after a drive down from te araroa. check in and checkout were easy and the staff were really nice and helpful. Queen room with toilet, shower and vanity (all very clean) in a separate room. kitchenette (no cooking facilities) with ample sized fridge. only complaint, if I did have one, would be the lack of air conditioning because gisborne was 30 degrees when we were there! would stay here again.
