Bella Vista Motel New Plymouth
Ranked #23 of 30 Hotels in New Plymouth
Reviewed 18 June 2009

We stayed at the Bella Vista in March 2009. It's a good location near the centre of town and the coastal walkway. It was quiet and the staff were friendly and helpful. The room had everything we needed and the laundry machines worked very well (the dryer was MUCH faster than any others we used on our 3-week trip). We also enjoyed meeting Teddy, the resident wire-haired Jack Russell terrier...a very lovable guy who greeted us immediately on our arrival.

This was a great motel. We booked a Superior Super King room which had a great bed, simple kitchen facilities and a good bathroom. It was clean and tidy and down a quiet street just off Devon St (which appears to be New Plymouth's party zone) and about 3 mins walk to the sea. The guy at reception was friendly and helpful and gave us a couple of Candy Canes, so he deserves a mention.

It's also directly opposite a free modern art gallery which has a superb cafe (open at 08:00 for breakfast). For dinner we ate at India Today on Devon St. which was spectacularly good.

New Plymouth's youth appear to have a habit of buying really bad cars and then drawing everybody's attention to this by fitting monstorous exhausts and cruising up and down Devon St. They clearly have no shame!

Didn't know what to expect from this chain but if all Bella Vistas are like this then we would stay in one in each location! The owners were great, very friendly, including Ted their dog who checks out new arrivals in case they might give him something to eat!!! His owners depair of him! Owners very helpful with where to eat etc. Clean comfortablbe accommodation in walking distance of all New Plymouth has to offer. Good laundry facilities and although on a corner not too
noisy. The prices were excellent value.

This is a nice new property and the folks running it are very pleasant. Our accommodation was good except we were on the end of the building beside a fairly busy street. There was no air conditioning, so you had to leave the windows open. There was too much traffic noise to be acceptable for us. There tended to be the occasional hot rodder during the night to disturb your sleep.

Check out the modern art museum across the street and do the walk along the oceanfront, only a couple of blocks from the hotel. It was excellent.

The large park in the city was good too.

We had an excellent meal at Cobb & Co in the city.
