A Nice Stay

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 28 Feb 2023
Nothing not to like here. Comfortable and clean, quiet and a very comfortable bed. We would recommend this motel to anyone and the gentleman on reception was so kind to stay up for us after our sailing was delayed from the North Island. We arrived after 10 pm and he was there to greet us. This went a long way, thank you.
Date of stay: February 2023
Trip type: Travelled as a couple

Booked at 6pm for a 10.30pm arrival that same day. The hosts were so accommodating, lights were left on in our unit and after a 12hour drive it was so lovely to see a lovely clean, comfty room. We slept so well, so happy we happened to book at Bella Vista. Would not hesitate to stay again. Thanks so much!

We ended up being stuck overnight in Nelson due to the airport being closed. We managed to get accomodation here.The owner Bruce was extremely accomodating and helpful. When we were still stranded the next day he found us a room, AND even lent us his car to go into the city.It was an amazing gesture,as he didn’t even know us.
The rooms were clean and very comfortable ,we just had a studio type unit with microwave, excellent shower.highly recommended.

Room tip: We had a room near the front and had no road noise,if you struggle with stairs you would need a ground floor unit.

Thanks for taking the time to review us. We understand that it is really annoying when plans get changed due to circumstances outside of your control and we will always try and help out as much as possible where we can. We are very proud of our newly refurbished bathrooms and are always happy to hear feedback that we made the right choice in fixtures and fittings. #trustbellavista

We stayed 3 nights that were split (2 and then 1) as we visited Able Tasman. Accommodation was clean with very comfy beds. Everything we needed in the room coffee tea fridge etc.
Bruce the manager was fantastic. Directed us to 2 local restaurants Smuggler and the Indian. Both great. Bruce also kindly kept out luggage whilst we were out of town and on our last morning even dropped us off at the car hire place. Above and beyond for sure.
Motel is about 6km from centre but closer to the lovely beach.
