Being located just along from the Len Lye Centre is definitely a bonus for this place. Having parking available also helps. Otherwise, things are fairly standard without being stand out. Small things like unknown heating, no newspaper and rattling doors not fixed (after requesting this) let things down slightly.

My wife and I were in town for a beer festival, where we needed to serve our beer, then depart early the next day. Unfortunately, neither she, nor I checked office hours. We arrived early, and were checked in to our ready, clean, and comfortable room with a smile. We departed to the festival... then the after-fest drinks... and we...

On arrival we went to the office and checked in....very quick and no fuss. There are plenty of parking spaces. Our room was a studio because it was on special rates.

Visited New Plymouth to see the Len Lye Gallery, this motel is literally metres from the gallery so no car parking problems. The motel is close to shops, cafes etc Our room was comfortable but a bit tied, the chair backs needed a good clean but we were made welcome and would stay there again.

We stayed five nights at Bella Vista during our visit to Taranaki Garden Show (so nice gardens!). Comfortable, clean and quiet room, practical bathroom and free wifi. Located near restaurants, cafés and The Costal Walkway. And friendly service, we got all the information what we needed.

The best thing about this motel is the price and location, which is right on the edge of the CBD and only metres from the new Len Lye art galley. Unfortunately my wife and I found the bed pretty poor and uncomfortable. Besides that the facilities were fine and the shower was particularly good.

First time staying at the Bella Vista Motel. We chose one of the compact studios and was very impressed with configuration, plenty of room to move about. Very clean and quiet. Located close to cafes and shops. Ideal for our needs. We will be back. Thanks you.
