Mine Hosts are the best you can get. No problem is too big. Had a problem with Sky Tv fixed, in an instant with a smile. One of the most important things is to have a good nights sleep. The bed was exceptional. The Unit was spotlessly clean. Highly recommend.

Nice room, clean and comfortable with friendly service. A good price as has all amenities. No comparison to cheaper places as they don't have the facilities of Bella Vista. Breakfast is available or you can make your own meals in the room.
