Spent 1 night here and would have stayed longer if itinerary allowed. Couple who own the motel were very friendly, happy to store luggage after we checked out, pointed us in the direction of local supermarkets and attractions we asked about. Motel is on Hastings Street behind the seafront parade, so no view, but this is perhaps the quieter road. First floor room was well appointed, large bathroom with walk-in shower. We opted to buy some food and prepare it in the microwave after a lot of eating out. Other motels came with a hob, but this just had the microwave, which we tested ourselves using, but we managed. As it isn't designed as a kitchenette/diner was such the room didn't have anywhere to eat, so one of us had the meal on our lap the other at the dressing table/desk. We did our own breakfast too, rather than get the motel's delivery. Comfortable night's sleep to give us the energy to walk to and up Bluff Hill in the morning after a full afternoon on the art deco trail before hand. Bella vista is in easy reach of the aquarium as well as the town centre.
