Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I travel often for work. And would return to this Bella Vista if the current hosts are in place. The host was gracious and welcoming, managing all requests kindly. The room was neat and clean. Great place to stay whilst in Gisborne.

I booked a room for a stay on Jan 1st back in September and now, one week out from my trip I have been advised that the room is no longer available and despite an emailed confirmation they will not honour my reservation. There is NO way this is a ‘technical fault’ or I would have been advised a lot earlier. I have been offered another hotel at 50% higher rate then my reserved booking. This is a Motel, you have to be able to trust that the room you booked so far in advance will be available. Just deceitful and conniving.

Stayed in a compact queen studio, it was clean, tidy and very comfortable. I haven’t slept that well in months! While small it has everything you need, a mini fridge, microwave, kettle etc. Certainly enough to see you through a few days. I’d also like to shout out to the shower. While low (is 5 foot 6 or 168cm and I had to bend). It was so much fun to feel like you’re in a sci fi movie.

Disappointed as advice is to book directly and will price match with booking.com. Was advised on phone would not price match and to receive the cheaper price would need to book via booking.com. On arrival was advised as since I rung directly unable to price match and should have booked via Bella Vista website. In the room the book advising facilities had a bit about booking directly and they will price match, clearly this is not correct as turned down twice. The room was over priced at 135.00 per night when compared to motels in Napier and Taupo for same trip. Example Taupo large room with full kitchen facilities and spa bath, cooked buffet breakfast for two 139.00 per night (same as pre covid). Room just big enough for the double bed and only one side table. Microwave and some dishes, cups ect provided however these needed to be washed in the bathroom sink being the same space as the toilet. Not hygienic especially with the current climate and emphasis on hygiene. Would be better motel does the dishes or not provide dishes and microwave cooking facilities.

It seems that even on a Monday night Gisborne is the place to party, drag furniture around the cement floors and teach dogs to bark. And that’s all within the Bella Vista. The rooms are small with VERY limited Sky channels (basically sport1 and some cheap ones) and even fewer normal TV channels. On the up side; the reception lady was very pleasant, the bed comfortable, long cation good and it’s always nice to be handed fresh milk for the room. Would I stay again? For the cost, no; I would add the extra few $ and stay in a hotel that had more to offer and less in the way of noise.

The room was average, small and with two small windows. Breakfast was delivered for you to cook. Next day the coffee wasn’t replenished. The owner was pleasant but just that. I will be looking for my usual stay and advising that this place doesn’t make the grade.
