My husband and I together with four other friends had booked one night however the earthquake happened and we were unable to head for Wellington as planned and Murray was very gracious and organised for us to stay for three nights prior to the original night - we were fondly referred to as the Wellington Refugees!

I entered the Taupo Cycle Challenge late (that's another story!) and needed a place to stay. The Bella Vista looked ideal; about 1km from the centre of Taupo - and so it proved to be. Super-friendly owners were really helpful; locking my bike in their garage overnight and giving local advice. The upstairs room was large, well-appointed and comfortable; everything... More

The room (16) was quite small for the big price we paid. We were there for 2 nights to attend a soccer tournament where our grandson was playing. Prices in this hotel seem to be hiked during such seasons although the room was just sufficient to sleep. While the room has a mini bar, iron and table, toaster and a... More

We like booking a Bella Vista motel as you know what you are getting as far as the quality of the accommodation goes. This was the 2nd time at Bella Vista Taupo & certainly no complaints. A nice friendly welcome, clean & comfortable room, while not overly spacious, adequate for a short stay & reasonably priced. While not as close... More

Stayed there for 1 night enroute to Auckland from Wellington. Arrived there 2200 Friday night 1hr before they closed the Desert Road due to snow. Lovely touch for the owners to have the heater on in the room and milk so we entered a warm room. Although the room is small it was a great size for one nights accommodation.... More

Stayed for two nights en route further North. Good sized room, comfortable bed, decent bathroom, fine WiFi. Handy for wandering into the town for shops and places to eat.

It's a roof over your head. Basic room and pretty compact in size. If you're a light sleeper - bring earplugs. The noise from the car park and other units is pretty loud with the paper things walls. The rooms are poorly lit and you certainly wouldn't want to be spending too much time at this place. Go out and... More
