We stayed at the Bella Vista for one night en route to our next destination as we were touring both islands in a relatively short amount of time. I wish that we had more time in our schedule to stay additional nights. It was clean, comfortable and very convenient to the geothermal park and a breakfast bakery. We would certainly...

We stayed here for one night and were allocated a room on the second floor, which we were very happy about. The staff at the reception was kind and welcoming, making recommendations on activities and local attractions, restaurants and cafes. Our room was tidy, very clean, modern and bright. The only downside of this place is the location, as it...

It was a bonus to the Bella Vista Group to purchase such a well situated site so close to all Rotorua’s amenities. This area is also designated a quiet zone as it is 100 metres from the Hospital. Police and Ambulance do not usually use sirens at night as there is no other traffic on the road at this time....

Nice clean room, easy 10 minute to the city centre through the local park full of steam vents and bubbling mud. Make sure to tell them if your going to any local attractions as they have a good selection of discount vouchers....

With Bella Vista motel you know what you'll get - similar good quality clean motels across the country at reasonable prices. This one did not disappoint and it is close to central Rotorua's restaurants and lake front attractions. But it is situated right on a major road out of town which seemed to be busy the whole night with Police...

Close to town centre and hospital, excellent value, clean and quiet - everything I wanted. Host Sue offered to take me to the bus terminal on my day of departure - much appreciated! Thank you again, Sue.

Staff could not have helped more, offered lock up and hose to wash down bikes amongst other thinks. This modern, very tidy motel was a short walk round lake road to a hilltop cafe with the best views over the lake or you could walk or bike through the park with its steaming and bubbling pools to the town centre...

Quiet, clean and friendly. Kevin and Sue really care about making it a great stay. You don't get a better motel experience so it's an easy choice. I've stayed before and I'll stay again because it's consistently top notch.

This was everything we wanted. Excellent value for money without cutting any corners. Modern accommodation. Very clean and well maintained. Friendly and very helpful,staff. And the ideal location. Only a short walk to the town centre, restaurants etc, through a public park featuring thermal pools and bubbling muds that were better than some of the commercial sites. Also close to...

Our room was clean and comfortable. The rooms have microwave, fridge, and kitchenware. There is a washer and dryer to use for a nominal fee. The manager Sue and her husband were great hosts, making sure our needs were met, and days were filled with all things Rotorua. We would gladly stay again.
