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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

From the moment you check in you know this will be good! Fantastic friendly greeting by the gentleman in the office, and our room was wonderful. Great parking and location, and our room was spotlessly clean. Great job will definitely be back!

Spotless ! We've stayed here before and it certainly would be in the top 3 of places we would try on future visits to the town. Everything we needed or would ever require are here, including walking proximity to the lake and town, car parking and of course, great facilities. We'll try to return if they're not fully booked (as they often are).

We find Bella Vista motels very consistent with their units through NZ. Always clean and provide the basic necessities. The price is within our budget. Appreciated the disability unit as it was ground level and easy parking outside.

One night at this very good Bella Vista Motel. We have stayed at many Bella Vistas and the room layout is nearly the same always. Here we stayed at first floor studio. It was super clean, comfortable beds and heat pump. WiFi connection was fast. Friendly service, too. One of the best Bella Vista accommodations so far. Location is about 20 min. walking distance (3 min. by car) from Taupo center but round the corner there is FourSquare supermarket, café and little further at sea side good pub-restaurant.

A little difficult to find to begin with as two motels use the one driveway. Once there I was given an upstairs room, but I had requested and downstairs room and that was very quickly rectified. I was impressed the room had a heatpump AND a fan. There are some weirdo's out there, me, who like air moving across them as they sleep, and the fan on the wall was perfect. The room was very clean, the bed very comfy and staff were friendly. I will be staying there again in the future

An absolutely perfect stop for the night! The room was cosy and had everything I needed. The bed was incredibly comfortable - especially after a long day of travelling - and the shower pressure was just right. Overall a lovely stay & convenient distance to the town centre!

Comfortable, clean and quiet room. Can't ask for more. In Taupo overnight unexpectedly due to car trouble, friendly staff and thanks for the use of the phone charger. Shower pressure was the best I've experienced in a motel for a long time.

Good basic accommodation, comfortable bed and pillows, good location that was close to shops etc. Very clean room and good shower and amenities. Be careful with the parking, no dedicated spaces to any of the units.
