Bella Vista chain is good value and this one is no exception. The staff are very friendly and ready with good dining advice, I can recommend it. Very close to the city dining spots and also to the boardwalk.

We stayed with the Bella Vista for three nights. The units are well situated within walking distance of town (2 minutes away), and to the beautiful coastal walkway (5 minutes away). We had a 2 bedroomed unit which was clean and well maintained. The motel staff were efficient and very friendly and only too happy to help with advice. Would...

Bella Vista units are quite small, but perfectly adequate for a few nights stay. The location is first class, being so close to the Coastal Walkway and lots of great restaurants. The warm welcome we received from Karyn, and the friendly helpful advice regarding New Plymouth was also much-appreciated.

Check in was interesting - a phone call to say reception closes at 7:00pm and we will leave the key in your room! A little unsettling when you are arriving by yourself at 9:30pm. Studio room was clean, tidy but on the small side given it was $144. Left thinking it was ok but over priced for the offering. Multiple...

It's near the stunning waterfront, great service, and very quiet and relaxing. The rooms are lovely and warm and inviting, and fairly spacious which is what our family required. Receptionist was nice enough. I would stay again.

I travel a lot with work (internationally) and we are often, by default booked into the local business hotel. As luck would have it, the Bella Vista had availability for two nights when the other hotel didn't. The service is excellent, the rooms are lovely and warm, quiet, ample space, and you have a little fridge if you want to...

My wife and i stayed here in mid June for 2 nights. We booked at the last minute and said we would arrive after reception hours to which the receptionist offered putting the heater on for us so the room would be nice and warm on our arrival. The room was clean, had a nice shower and toilet. Free 100MB...

Bella Vista is a good, simple motel, located just around the corner from the waterfront. It was a very short walk to the playground at the end of the road, and to a couple of good cafes (Arborio was great for dinner). The queen-bed room was a good size, with plenty of space for the two of us. Staff were...

We booked 2 rooms for a 1 night stay and thoroughly enjoyed staying here. It was very clean, our rooms had plenty of space and the hosts are marvellous. We got lots of information from them and they made us feel very welcome. The location is ideal and they even have bikes for you to use. New Plymouth in general...
