Bella Vista Motel New Plymouth
Ranked #24 of 30 Hotels in New Plymouth
Reviewed April 8, 2010

We chose the Bella Vista Motel for a weekend away as it was within walking distance to all the main attactions in New Plymouth. The rooms were spotless and the free bikes were a welcome bonus to cycle the fabulous waterfront walkway/cycleway. Our hosts Mark and Denise made us very welcome and ensured our visit to New Plymouth and our stay at the Bella Vista was memorable. We would highly recommend the Bella Vista in New Plymouth.

Hosts Mark and Denise are absolute diamonds. The Bella Vista maintains records of guest preferences to ensure one is greeted as an old friend and immediately handed a glass of one's preferred tipple. The rooms are spacious, airy and immaculately clean. Location is handy to the CBD but remarkably peaceful. Beds are huge, very comfortable, with crisp linen and clean covers. A delicious breakfast of your choice, including full English, is delivered to your door at your selected time. No detail is overlooked to ensure that guests are provided for. The hosts' local knowledge is extensive regarding enquiries for tourist locations or the best places to dine. Absolutely recommended.

This motel is centrally located in New Plymouth, across the road from the Govet Brewster Art Gallery and only a few minutes stroll from the waterfront walkway, te Puke Ariki Museum and central shopping, cafes and restaurants. Free wireless internet access, bicycles to use, and daily paper. The rooms are a little small but are immaculately clean and the hosts are very friendly and helpful.

Having stayed in a number of hotels & motels in New Plymouth over the past 6 or 7 years (and was somewhat disappointed every time in my choice of accommodation) I thankfully found the Bella Vista. Situated right across the road from the wonderful Govett Brewster Art Gallery and its fabulous cafe, this motel is perfect. The hotel management are tremendous and just couldnt do more for you. Rooms are clean and comfortable, and they are well serviced every day. Nice bathrooms. Clean spacious showers with big shower heads that feel great when you get under them. Warm comfy beds that make for a peaceful sleep. TV, internet, lots of tea and coffee etc. What else could you ask for? I have always found the staff to be extremely helpful and friendly and of all the hotels that have stayed in every year, this is the one that I look forward to returning to the most.

We have traveled monthly to New Plymouth for the last 2 1/2 years. We always stay at this motel due to its fantastic hosts, who are always there for you, and the great central location. Walking distance to everything.

For a first time stay in New Plymouth we struck it lucky. We were there for a Concert and accommodation was tight in the city with other large events on, so we had very little choice, even 6 months out! A very helpful staff member at the Information Centre found a room at this motel for us. We were delighted to find it was in an ideal location - the shops, restaurants and parks nearby one way, and the waterfront and fabulous coastal boardwalk close by the other way. The motel owners, Denise & Mark, were very friendly and helpful despite being rushed off their feet and extremely busy themselves. Everything was within walking distance but a real bonus for us was being able to use the bikes provided by the motel and free for guests' use. As we did not have a car this was the perfect way to explore a bit further afield and we used them every day. They were top bikes.
As we got the last room available it was a smaller one but was well appointed and clean, and quite adequate for 2 people. The motel complex comprises 18 units of varying sizes, and is nice and new, only 4 years old.
The owners provided exceptional service and are highly thought of by their many regular clients.

Nice rooms and great location for walks along the board walk and visiting all the attractions in town. Lovely hosts who really go the extra mile. They treat you like one of the family. In fact, another member of our family almost lives there and has never complained about a thing!
