Stayed one night here. Hosts were warm and welcoming and their willingness to share their local knowledge was great. Room was a little small but very comfortable. Bathroom was roomy though. I would stay again.

A basic motel room good enough for a night's stay. The beds were not the most comfy and bed linen seemed a little old but we got a good night's rest. The motel is located close to the park, shops and restaurants which was good and the receptionist was really helpful in telling us what to see and do.

We stayed at Bella Vista for one night on our way through to Auckland. Sue and Kevin were great hosts and had plenty of tips for things we could do in Rotorua. Our king spa studio was clean, comfortable and very quiet despite the motel's proximity to a busy road. Very good value and would book again.

Brilliant location, had exactly what we needed. There were 8 of us from melbourne, sue and Kevin gave us discounts to sights and shows, handy walking tips, directions. Nothing was left out. Great location. We would all recommend Bella Vista, and promise we'll be back.

The motel is situated near town and a lovely park. The rooms are modern and clean, beds very comfortable. The owners were friendly and helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Bella Vista and would gladly stay there again.

For a reasonable rate, we had a very comfortable two-night stay in this Rotorua establishment. Although the room was a little on the small side, the rooms were neat and tidy and bathrooms -recently renovated- had that new look about them. Not only is the park a hop and a skip away, a dairy sits practically on the motel's doorstep....

Our stay was quite enjoyable. Everyone was very helpful. They provided great suggestions as far as what to do as well as helping with bookings. Room was comfortable. No complaints. Would go again. Wish there was more than instant coffee.
