We had a dream week from 28 Dec to 3 Jan 2021. The management was pleasant helpful and efficient. We took our dog with us and were treated with care and kindness. The room was clean and very close to the lake and the city center. We were able to eat outside in the garden just beside our unit door. We highly recommend the motel but, above all, the management of Bella Vista Rotorua

POSITIVE the room was clean and tidy and the beds were comfortable. The WiFi was free and very good. NEGATIVE For three people the room was too small , we were falling over each other and tripping up on suitcases. CONCLUSION For two people the room would be fine, but with any more than that the room ismtoo small. I probably would not stay here again.

Bella Vista Motel is located in the nice ocnvenient location in Rotorua near to multiple popular activities. The room was tidy and clean although it was a bit small for family. If toilet was separate from the shower, it was better. The staff is nice and friendly very much!

The typical Bella Vista formula but on a major road. The turn to get in the car park is immediately after you turn off the main road. The manager was very helpful providing some great tourist recommendations. He responded as soon as we made his aware of an issue with the room. As the title says good base for taking tours, many of which collect from the motel, and walking into town. The rooms are a little tired.
