The best Bella Vista due to small extras touches like bed side lamp, proper ironing board, paper delivered, and great hosts. Free internet and 50 sky channels! 50! Sky includes radio stations - an often overlooked feature in motels who's bedside radio alarms are always useless and have no arial for FM. I NEED national radio! Great location close to...

A nice place to stay overnight. We needed a unit for the night and Bella Vista filled the bill. Modern and tastefully furnished. In a good location not too far from the centre of town. The staff were very friendly and efficient. All the usual facilities for an overnight stay were on hand and the request for more sugar was...

We stayed at the Bella Vista for a night. Unfortunately it was a Saturday night, and being down the student end of town it was very noisy.
