“Accommodation with Heart”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2011

I was very pleasantly surprised by the personal attention. Starting from the warm and welcoming reception to beyond the time of check out. Although there is a 20min walk to town (think: healthier option) the walk by the river makes the extra time worthwhile. The breakfasts were hot and always on time. The supermarket and Helm for dining are but a few minutes stroll from this location. Thank you Roger and Mrs Roger !

Have stayed at this Motel twice so far and will be staying there again in November 2011.
Roger & Jenny are always smiling, nothing is to much of an issue for them. If the beds and showers are not the best I have ever had in any motel, then they certainly rank in the top 2

We stayed at the Bella Vista Motel in Hamilton with our 4 and 5 year old daughters. It was great. The rooms were clean, the facilities fantastic and everything we needed was supplied in our room. We were made to feel welcome and told to let them know if we needed anything else, which we didn't. Very friendly, convinient to town by car. Great place to stay. Would go there again without a doubt.

Room Tip: The one bedroom studio with twin beds in the room and king bed in the kitchen lounge area was great...

We stayed in the Bella Vista motel during our stay in Hamilton and were not disappointed. The rooms were well equipped with microwave, fridge and kitchen utensils so you could easily make your own food or get takeaway from the local shops. Supermarkets nearby and although a little bit further to town its a lovely walk and no different to most motels which are mostly altogether. The room was lovely, clean and light with a really good sized and spotless bathroom. You can even borrow the BBQ and sit outside if you like which is fab. Plus, really close to the river walk which I would highly recommend. Hosts Roger and his wife were so friendly and helpful. Would definitely go back!

We've enjoyed our 3 different stays at the Bella Vista. Roger and his wife are the happiest moteliers I've ever struck. Nothing was a problem, and they just made you feel so welcome. Room had everything we needed. And the walk to the CBD is only 15 minutes away. Definitely recommend the Bella Vista!

After staying at the Bella Vista in Blenheim we decided to stay at the Bella Vista in Hamilton. We were not disappointed, the room and hospitality were great. However the motel is a 20 minute walk into the town centre. On the recommendation of the host we went to The Helm about a five minute walk away and had a lovely steak dinner (although we did find the drinks abit pricey compared to other bar/restaurants we had been to).

Just spent two wonderful nights at the Bella Vista having received a cheerful welcome from Roger who by the way was ever so helpful with the choice of restaurants available in the area.
The room was all I could have wanted, very clean and well equiped with a good selection of TV channels and a comfy bed . It's in an ideal location for rugby fans with Rugby Park just around the corner. Overall this was an excellent choice and I will definitely be returning maybe next time for a rugby match.
