Bella Vista Motel Hamilton
Ranked #20 of 63 Hotels in Hamilton
Reviewed 16 September 2012

I spent 3 nights in this establishment. It was very well appointed, extremely clean and well organised.
I feel that I cannot stress enough the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff and management, which, together with the qualities of the motel itself, made my stay in Hamilton an extremely enjoyable one.

Bells Vista consistently good. Stayed at four (Napier, Fox Glacier, Wanaka and Hamilton) and they were all great. There is always a bit of risk in picking motels out of the blue so being able to stay with a well managed chain may seem somewhat mundane to the B&B/hostel crowd but comfort, good sleep are important. This one was no different from the others in terms of quality and comfort.

Room Tip: We were on the main floor. Just fine. Good parking.

We pulled into this hotel after having a great experience at a Bella Vista earlier in the week. Everything turned out great except for when we went to check out, the price was suddenly $130, so much more than we had planned on. Earlier in the week when we had stayed at the Bella Vista near the airport we were told that if we got the Extra "frequent Stayer" card instead of being $99 a night they hotels would be $89. When we had checked in last night we showed the man at the desk that we would be using the card. He said he would just get it from us in the morning. We were shocked when we checked out that he charged us $130 when we were told that it would be $89!! We asked to get the price back down to $89 from what we were told but he said he couldn't do anything about the price because he wasn't the owner......VERY disappointing!! We will not be back there nor recommend anyone else go there!

In Hamilton from Western Australia for a couple of days, (April 16, 17) looking at property and chose Bella Vista on the strength of Tripadvisor reviews. Great choice. Initially when we tried to book the website said full, so not to be deterred, we emailed them direct. Immediate response with our required choice being available. V8 Supercars on the following weekend so some mixup with the website booking system. One bedroom apartment - plenty of room, only minutes from the "eating" part of town and very pleasant hosts. Complimentary paper each morning and a cable for the free internet - $29.99 for 24 hours at Crowne Plaza in Queenstown!!!!!! Go figure????? Importantly it is only minutes from excellent shopping and wine supply!! Definitely our base for future visits to Hamilton, until we find a place of our own. Well done guys and thank you.

Room Tip: We had Unit 4 - ground floor and very convenient.

We stayed at this motel on 13th and 20th February. We chose to stay here because of our other pleasant experiences at Bella Vista motels and we were very pleased that we did. Jenny was lovely and went out of her way to help us and we would have been in trouble if Roger had not given us detailed instructions of how to get to Auckland airport, Our accommodation was excellent and included a Spa bath. We would have no hesitation in recommending this motel.

As always, it's a pleasant experience to stay at a Bella Vista Motel. We really enjoyed the free internet access. Friendly owner and clean and comfortable room. Would stay there again if ever back in Hamilton.
