Great value motel

We really enjoyed our short stay at Bella Vista. The hosts were so welcoming, and the room was warm, spacious, and impeccably clean. Comfy beds, good quality bed linen, a fully equipped kitchen, spa bath, and sky tv made it very pleasant, despite having two toddlers with us! We would definitely recommend this place for a low budget family friendly accommodation choice.

Were charged for an extra child $75per night but when we cancelled (several nights beforehand) this we were only given a refund of $20 per night which we had to ask for. When queried they said it was what they charged and that the rest was book fees paid to WOTIF.
