We used the Bella Vista as our launching point for many different trips around the area. The service was great, room was clean, and was nice and quiet at night so we could sleep well. We used the kitchen quite a lot while we were there, breakfasts and dinners. The bathroom was clean and water pressure fantastic. A great stay!

I have been more than pleased with Bella Vista Motel. The hosts are amazing and couldn't do enough for you when it comes to planning what to do. The Motel was comfortable and was situated within walking distance from the town. A must stay.

This hotel had just been purchased by new owners and they were very attentive. It is clear they have many improvements in mind. They were quick to fix a broken fixture in our bathroom. The room itself was well laid out and had all we needed but the bathroom was a little dated. The road noise was quiet loud as...

Stayed one night. I suggest any booking preferences be confirmed with owner before visit. I asked for a quiet room on the ground floor ( as travelling with 89 year old mother) - no response upon booking 7 days before visit, but neither request was satisfied. We were given a room on the first floor closest to Lakes road -...

Hi Brian, We thank you for your review and apologise for any inconvenience you had with your room. Although we try to accommodate guests requests where possible, there are times where we are limited to meet a requested room type. This was one of those instances due to it being the height of the Busy season with limited room availability,...

The room was pretty small, but we just stayed there one night. Sue checked us in and was very helpful with activities and directions to downtown. The room was clean, the bed comfortable and we would stay there again if passing through.

We have had a very pleasant stay in Belle Vista Motel in Rotorua. Hosts were very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable, clean and modern. The local attractions are in walking distance from the motel. I can surely recommend the motel to everyone.

As most, also this Bella Vista Motel is a good place to stay for a desent price. The host was welcoming and accomodating (as to my early check-out before the normal office hours). The motel is in walking distance through from the city center (through the park) and therefore great for exploring the local attractions. Rooms are clean and equipped...

One night stay during school holidays. Very friendly staff, room was very clean and bed comfortable. Some plates and cutlery available. Reasonable cost considering the vacation time and crowds of visitors in the area

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.
