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.

Bella Tuscany Motel. We were received by the owner Ben, although we arrived well before check in time he showed us to the rooms . Parking is just in front of the room. This motel is on a busy road, but has effective double glazing. My room was facing the road , I was not disturbed by the traffic. We had a two double room suite.
Simply furnished, the king bed in the sitting room/kitchen. The kitchen was compact, well thought out and fully equipped.Dining table with four chairs and a settee with small side tables. The bathroom was a good size , wonderful water pressure. The towels good quality and size and plenty goodies in soap, shampoo etc The second bedroom had twin beds and a door opening on a small terrace with table and chairs.
The Motel is a ten minute drive from the centre of town.
The rooms and bathroom very perfectly clean. Ben was helpful in suggesting places to go and how to get there. We stayed two nights and the lady cleaner popped in after the first night to remove rubbish and see if we needed anything.
I recommend this Bella Tuscany as a simple but nice, friendly place to stay for a few nights.

Motel, so place for car. Large room with lovely comfortable bed. Nice touch in bathroom with towel art.
We were in room 11.
Large unusual shower, it is flush with floor and has curtains to pull around. Lovely hot shower,with great ecostick products.
Well stocked coffee bar with a Nespresso machine, bliss 😁.
You do need to drive into town, but plenty of parking.
The owners are very helpful and friendly.
Would recommend staying here if you are in Napier New Zealand.

Quick stopover on our way south, room was clean with ample tea and coffee. Wifi was unable to login, host tried to help without success. Got our washing done and dried outside which was a bonus. Friendly staff, would recommend.

Small room, clean and tidy, shower great however bathroom very small. The street lights shine in this place needs blackout curtains, if they had blackout curtains we would have had a great nights sleep. The car park is very small around room 9 - 10.

Only have continental breakfasts which was a shame, there really should e priced at around $80 - $90 a night.

The place was not very clean, peeling paint work filling the shower, very dirty toilet. Stained and dirty furniture. Many of the advertised features, including in the room guide, were not available - no Sky or local radio/tv. No coffee maker, not coffee filter pot, poor quality beverages, no iron. Dead plants and little courtyard full of weeds.
The website still has the previous owner's details. I visited four years ago and then it was a really lovely experience. No this time.

The hotel owners were so rude. As tourist, spent time with many hotels many countries, this is the worst hotel I've ever stay. As already paid fee by internet when they saw us as Asia people to check in they asked for additional cash deposit and also asking for credit card to hold some amount for any damage if possible. When I ask why need to deposit cash and withhold credit line together they said it is hotel policy however when I walked back to their counter again the new white customer check in with out and deposit. Why Asia customer who already paid for the hotel need to pay them cash deposit and also credit card for hold amount credit line. If I didnot already paid the hotel I will not diffinitely stay in this hotel. They look down at us, in the morning they return us with full amount without say anything.
The location is far away from everything, very tiny garden which cannot use for anything. The room was look clean but when I look under the bed I found the empty bottle of beer.
It is small hotel The owner may not employ anyone to take care they look like a rich people so always look down other people. If you don't beleive then try yourself and god bless you.

Response from johnno540, Manager at Bella Tuscany Motel
Responded 2 May 2014
We enjoy guests from all countries & nationalities. However, we were pre warned from the previous Motel these guests stayed in, where they tried to get 9 adults into two units booked for only 6 guests maximum. They also left the previous property in a disgusting state, so we needed to take a cash deposit in case this happened to us. They tried to again get 9 adults (hiding the extra three adults in a van down the road) and pay for 6 only. We refused to accept the extra guests and advised them to book elsewhere ( as we were unable to accommodate due to being full). They were certainly not happy that we challenged the numbers, which we believe we had every right to do. These guests have done the same thing throughout their NZ trip. When challenged they have turned to trip advisor to pull the Motel down when in fact they are clearly in the wrong. We appreciate this right of reply to show our side of the writeup.

We stayed at the Bella Tuscany for 3 nights in Dec 06. Facilities are good, it is clean and well managed by a very friendly helpful couple.

Convenient for all Napier and surrounding attractions.

Motel unit clean and comfortable, the service from the office was excellent, The unit was very quiet and we would have no problem staying there again. We were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary and had no problem going into the city for our evening outing. Would recommend to our friends.

We spent two nights here this week, in a small unit (12) next to office. Not a lot of natural light in the room and although small, there was enough room as were out all day. Room was nice and tidy and nice décor. Good heat pump for the colder evenings. As other reviewers have said it is a drive to town and no shops very close but as we had our own car it wasn't a problem. What we found a bit odd was, that the owners had closed office by 6pm and had left the premises on both nights, just leaving a note stuck on the door for guests who were yet to arrive. And an emergency no. And that they would be back 7.30am. It was a bit of a problem the first night as we went to go out to dinner and discovered they hadn't given us a room key, so we couldn't lock up, When rung the owners son put us on to his mother who said she'd come back and put key under mat. Not very good when most moteliers are on site for any help that is needed. Also we were supposed to get continental breakfast both mornings as she had offered it as part of our stay. We got it one morning but not the next. As we had gone out to dinner again 2nd night at about 6.15 and office was closed as per previous night, we thought they would bring breakfast in the morning. No the night before as previous evening, so didn't contact them. Breakfast did not arrive, but we didn't bother to let them know. A little disappointing tho. And breakfast was ok 2 pieces of toast each and cereal (mine was stale) even tho I was from new packet. Milk was supplied in a coffee cup that was a bit messy to pour into bowls or coffee cups. And although unit was clean and tidy and looked good, it was disturbing to find a large cockroach crawling across the table not long before we left. So not sure about this motel, I think the moteliers need to make a few changes re being on site and making sure they do what they have said they will. As we left another lady checking out let the owners son that she had had to put up with smoke alarm making noises all night and she had taken out battery to stop it. Just little things that make a stay not the best and not having people on site to remedy these things.

Responded 3 May 2014
Thank you for your review. We do value all comments regarding Bella Tuscany Motel. Not sure we understand the non natural light in unit 12 as this has not only a large glass ranch slider, alongside another opening window the length of the unit, and a further two windows on the opposite side. More than a lot of Motel units would have. Regarding the temporary absence of the managers ( visiting a very sick relative in Hospital) we can only assume the notice was read incorrectly as it stated return at 7.30pm (not am) It was necessary to have the property unattended for a couple of hours, at short notice and we did leave an emergency number. We apologise for missing a continental breakfast the following morning - our mistake. We do thank you for your comments.
