Booked this motel as we were travelling to Napier, and the staff were lovely. Made it really simple - and let us know the differences between the rooms (we were wanting a microwave). We stayed in a Queen studio room on the first floor, it was well equipped (microwave, toaster, tea/coffee etc) - and looked much larger than the standard...

I have traveled the world for 40 years and this is the worst motel I have ever stayed in. It was booked in September 2016 as part of a 16 day vacation package to New Zealand. I can't say for sure, but I believe that I got stuck in the handicapped room because they had given mine to someone else....

Thank you for your review we appreciate all feedback as they can often help us make improvements for the future. We would however like to point out a couple of things that you may want to consider for the future also. 1) You were not “stuck in a handicapped room”. We do not have “handicapped rooms” but we do have...

Location good for town part of napier (although would probably recommend staying closer to the harbour next time as there are nicer bars and restaurants and a good family beach there). Wifi was atrocious and it right by the road-the view is of the car park and main road. Was clean and no other complaints.

From the moment we arrived we were impressed with the staff and the unit we checked into. The manager assisted us with our luggage and was very friendly. The unit was more than adequate and had everything one needed and was very clean. Location was perfect and centrally located. Couldn't have been better

We have booked a small studio for 2 nights, and reviews on here seemed to say it's pretty good having booked it at the beginning of the year thought price would be OK. We got one of the rooms on ground floor by carpark. The room was dirty, tiny and very old style decor. The walls are paper thin so...

Due to snow storm, me and my friend end up here as the inter city bus was cancelled. A perfect place if you are on budget. Rooms space can be really small. The insulation and warmer system in the room is perfect during winter. During summer they placed a fan in the room and no A/C in all their rooms....

Friendly manager - so helpful! Very welcoming. A great facility with comfortable rooms and very clean. Excellent value for money. The location is excellent as well. We were a family group and had two rooms which the manager changed so we could be together with interconnecting door.

We were over-nighting in Napier on the way to a funeral, so we wanted somewhere clean and comfortable, close to a decent restaurant and town not to mention reasonably priced. Brian took my reservation the night before and was on the desk when we arrived. Friendly and helpful. The Napier RSA is directly across the road - they provide a...

If you are after a place to stay within walking distance of Napier's town center then Bella Vista is perfecto. The rooms are comfortable and priced well for what amenities they have. The manager was also very pleasant and helpful. 10/10 for overall satisfaction
