We took the last motel in our price bracket we could find when we tried to book a room during a graduation weekend in Dunedin. The blurb on a number of sites told us we would get a small room and they were 100% correct, However, it was clean and warm and was perfectly fine for our planned one night visit. The motel staff we met were helpful and as much free internet as we wanted. The bed was fine and heating more than adequate for the small room. The motel even supplied earplugs as the room was on the one way system north but I certainly did not find the noise an issue - even not using the earplugs.

On the positive side, the motel was clean and tidy, and the staff were helpful. The bed was comfortable, and noise was minimal.
However, the units were showing their age, with cramped rooms, with the bed taking up most of the space. There were no cooking facilities apart from the microwave. We felt that the unit was rather overpriced for what it offered.

This property is very convenient to the University, fast food, pubs etc. The owners/managers are very helpful and friendly. The room was only 99% clean when I moved in but after that, it was spotless. Shower is nice and hot. Bed very comfortable.

Room Tip: Room downstairs lacks privacy but is worth it, if you dont want to climb stairs with your baggage.

If you are not familiar with Bella Vista, it is a chain of motels across NZ, similar to Motel 6 category, but all are way overpriced by US standards. I stayed in 3 of them and each exceeded 140 NZD which is ridiculous for what they offer, a compact room and bathroom with hardly any space to move around. However, they are all clean and tidy with ample parking, and best of all, free and fast wifi which is a rarity in NZ. Breakfast is extra if you like and is served in the room. I never tried it.

This Bella Vista was disappointing and the worst of the 3 I stayed in. The room was really tiny and hardly any space to move around. Lighting was very poor and inadequate. Like most other motels in NZ, this one too does not have a water mixer in the sink, making it very difficult to us the hot and cold water. Make sure you get an upper level room unless you have mobility issues. Privacy and quiet are at a premium at all Bella Vistas. .

If you are planning to stay at more than 1 Bella Vista, make sure you enroll in their loyalty program, and encash your balance at the next stay. It is very easy and practical.

A very clean room situated on a fairly busy road within walking distance of the town centre. This motel is near the University and close to well priced eateries. Wifi is free but we did find it kept dropping the connection.
