I had one night's stay at the Bella Vista recently. The double bed was comfortable, but in the middle of the summer the choice for cool air was either windows open (heavy traffic noise in the mornings) or small wall fan on (giving slightly warm air on the fan only setting). Air conditioning would be something worth investing in, on...

Thank you for you review. We will be looking at air conditioning in the new future. Having just purchased this motel and this being our first summer here we are still learning what is needed to be improved. We hope you will consider staying again when you are in Northland.

We had stayed at this motel twice. Once at unit 3 (Executive Queen) and another time at unit 9 (One Bedroom Executive unit) which was at the upper level. The units were clean and comfortable, and came with spa bathtub in both. On our first stay on the ground floor unit we were disturbed by noise from the adjoining unit...

We enjoyed our stay. The manager was very friendly and helpful. There was a fair bit of road noise but we weren't worried by it. The bathroom is splendid Wonderful shower and lots of space to put things. Only problem for us were the beds. Every time you turned over it felt as though you were on a trampoline. Maybe...

We got herded back inside from the public footpath for standing out there having a cigarette, because apparently it is a corporate motel...didn't see that anywhere in the information provided about this place. Rooms were immaculate and well maintained. Just management that possibly need a bit of training with people skills. A little cramped and not a relaxed atmosphere, so...

We stayed for one night on our way north. This motel is highly recommended, immaculately clean and fresh inside, very good facilities and a beautiful big bathroom with excellent shower. Rooms not large but plenty of space for us and our daughter. Would stay here again.

Only a one night stay, but will use this motel again for sure. Everything was spotless and very comfortable. Convenient off street parking and a really helpful manager added to the ease of the stay. Free wifi and Sky TV to watch the movies and the All Blacks!
