Recent guest reviews

Perfect, value for money place for our overnight stop in Taupo. Our accommodation was clean and a good size, (room 9 with bedroom for the kids). Hosts were friendly and helpful. Close to town, we walked there for breakfast.

We stayed overnight and were very happy. The staff were very welcoming . The room was clean and had all we needed. The bed was comfy. The shower had great pressure ( which we don’t find often in hotels ). Close to everything you need yet in a quiet area.

My partner and I were looking for somewhere to stay and came across Bella Vista. The staff were friendly and chatty. The room had what you could ask for, tidy and clean with amenities. It's close to town, could walk if you wanted. Definitely get your money's worth and would happily stay again.

Very warm welcome by staff. The room was lovely and clean, a double bed and a single, basic kitchen facilities, compact but functional. The bathroom was generous and again lovely and clean. We stayed 3 nights, tea and coffee was replaced each day. We even had plunger coffee which was a real treat. The hotel was within walking distance to the lake and the town centre.

Arrived Taupo for overnight stay in early evening without prebooking anything. So glad we found Bella Vista which had room that night for 4 adults. Modern furnishings and decor, comfortable, clean, warm and enough space, plus well equipped kitchen. Queen bed in living room, and separate bedroom with 2 single beds. Spa bath was bonus in bathroom. On quiet road, short drive to shops and attractions. Had really good lighting in the rooms. Very friendly and helpful manager

This motel is definitely no frills, but that is reflected in its decent value pricing. Our stay was pleasant however, the room was clean and modern and the beds were comfortable. The motel owner was very a genuinely pleasant person and very down to earth - making our short stay here all the more enjoyable.

We stayed here for 2 nights while travelling round North Island. Very clean and comfortable. Had everything you needed. In a quiet road within 15 mins of lake and shops which wasn't a problem as it's a nice walk.

I booked on line without seeing the motel. Its on a really quiet street yet close to the town. The rooms are very clean, tidy, modern and well kept. Parking is right at the door and even a morning paper without having to request one. It was a very cold night when I stayed but the room had a fantastic heater which quickly warmed the room. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly when I booked in.

Bella Vista is close enough to walk to town or the lake front. The room was immaculate and very comfortable. The staff friendly and helpful. Although we got a deal we still think the cost of accommodation in Taupo is expensive by comparison with other venues for instance our recent stay in Raglan was much less expensive for larger accommodation. However we would still go back.

Located within walking distance to town was probably the best attribute of this motel. It was very affordable, as a last minute booking should be, but the rooms were a bit small and cold. Taking a long time to warm up on what was a very cold night. Could of done with a few comforts to make the place a cosy spot to spend the night.
