We were able to do our washing no problem. We were within walking distance. We arrived early and were able to leave our bags there while we walked back into town before being able to be checked in. Unit very small but adequate. Shower great. Owners did not seem to keen to take us to station so we took the local shuttle, very nice man

Modern clean and tidy motel.

Pros: Modern and clean. Nice outdoor garden area and coffee tables on decks.
Rooms were very clean and tidy. Everything you needed in the kitchinette, plus a well-stocked supply of tea and coffee. Handy walk to the hospital and into the town centre. Staff friendly and helpful. Would certainly love to stay at Bella Vista again.
