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.

Clean and modern

Cons: Cooking facilities in the room.
This is a reasonably modern complex in a good location. We were unaware when we booked that the "kitchenette" did not include any cooking or wash-up facilities - not even a microwave oven. We were there for one night only, so we made do, but it would be helpful if the description of the room included this information.

Business

Stayed overnight after arriving after 8:30 returning to the north island. Room and communication excellent, owners left key in room for my arrival and coned off a car park for the truck Only disappointing thing is hotel is close to main road and trucks can sometimes wake you up during the night, fortunate for me I was one of the rooms set back from road but could still hear them. If you are walking to get food make sure you turn right and head to the west end.
