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.

A great motel used this chain a lot on our travels. Owners where pkeasent gent offered to carry case upstairs, which was a lovely gesture. The motel was a short walk to the centre of town easy walk to the beach and coastal walkway. Owners provide great knowledge of the area. Would happily go back.

The Bella Vista Motel in New Plymouth was clean and fresh. The location was very central. Upon arrival Jim talked us through where to go to eat and explore the city. He then proceeded to take our luggage upstairs, even though we are perfectly able to do so ourselves. Our stay was fabulous.

We were accommodated at very short notice. Reception was friendly and helpful. Unit was exactly what we needed. Central location is superb - allowed us to walk to favourite cafes and places of interest. Have been before and will definitely be back.

Very clean, comfortable rooms. As we booked direct, we had a very good price. Easy walking distance to the coastal walkway, restaurants, town and the Festival of Light, which was on in Pukekura Park. Management were friendly and helpful..

This is in an excellent location for New Plymouth. Not far from the Coastal Walkway and in the central shopping area. Two minute walk to the intercity bus stop. Very impressed how clean and comfortable the rooms are. Would highly recommend.

This is a chain motel but in one of the best locations in New Plymouth. Very central - a very short walk to the Govett-Brewster and close to the coastal walkway. Also an easy walk to the Main Devon Street shops and not far to the shopping mall. Good restaurants and cafes within easy walking distance. Rooms are not big but clean and comfortable.

Very close to all amenities and centre of town. A couple of minutes walk to the beach. The motel has all the facilities you may need. The staff are delightful. If I return to New Plymouth for another break this where I would stay. Highly recommended.
