On arrival I was warmly welcomed. The room was very clean, comfortable and well equipped. Although located on the main road outside noise was minimal. Shower fittings could do with a bit of an update.

We made a late booking at the Bella Vista Motel, after arriving at our previously booked motel (Boundary Court Motor Inn) where it was nothing like the advertising & decided it was so bad we couldn't stay there. The Bella Vista Motel was perfect - clean, modern & great value. The service was lovely, with a great sense of humour...

Great accommodation, large room, clean & tidy, with everything you need to look after yourself and family. Parking outside of rooms for ground floor rooms or within 5-10m other wise. Very friendly manager. Close to city and other locations.

Stayed 1 night in a one bedroom unit. Great motel, good sized unit that was spotlessly clean with very comfortable beds, plenty of towels/soaps etc and well equipped kitchen. Helpful and welcoming hosts. Would definitely stay again and highly recommended.

We stayed only one night, but the gentleman host was very friendly and helped us find our way. The upstairs room was large with a comfortable bed and a large bathroom. We then stayed at another Bella Vista in Queenstown, but this one in Hamilton was better.

Booked this stay from the UK so not sure what to expect. We were not disappointed. We arrived early but that was not a problem. The room was large and clean with all the facilities needed for our stay including a guest laundry. Our visit to Hamilton was over the new year and it appeared that the whole place was...

This was the first of four Bella Vista motels we used during our road trip in New Zealand. This one set the standard that was later matched by all the others. Decent sized, clean accommodation with the usual features you would expect in a motel; nice sized bed with spotless linen and towels, fridge, cooking facilities on-site parking. Friendly, helpful...

Our family of 6 stayed here for 2 nights in December 2016. We had a one bedroom room with a double bed in the living room and an additional rollaway bed. It had a very clean kitchen and wonderfully large bathroom with both shower (great pressure) and spa bath! The gentleman running the place was very friendly and helpful. I...

I travel to Hamilton a lot for work, but this was my first time at Bella Vista. The internet was the stand out - fast wi-fi that doesn't cut in and out and can actually stream video (including Netflix!) A must for business travelers. So many accommodation providers do not realise how important good internet is. The rooms are clean...

I stayed here a couple of years ago and it was interesting to return. My previous experiences were repeated. It was clean, comfortable and conveniently located with safe parking. On the main motel 'strip' close to the Waikato Stadium but it does not seem to be effected by traffic noise. Friendly, helpful staff.
