Awesome and friendly service. Got there after check in closed but a quick phone call to the hotel before arriving sorted the issue straight away. Great off street parking, comfy beds, cozy rooms & great hospitality. Will definitely recommend!

We stayed here three nights in a studio unit which was certainly ample for us. The unit was cosy, absolutely spotless and well-equipped, with a very good shower too. The housekeeping team made sure towels were replaced daily and bins emptied and were delightful people too ! Free wi-fi is available, with clear reception for that and the TV. There...

Great friendly staff and nice welcoming at reception. Value for money wise its pretty good, handy location that you can pretty much walk back into town as well if you want to. Rooms were clean and tidy and fitted the bill for a one night stay. Good place for the price thats for sure

Bella Vista Taupo is extremely clean however the rooms are small. This wasnt an issue for our stay as it was just the two of us and we were out most of the time. There is no extra facilities such as a pool, spa or gym which would have been nice to have in summer. The bathrooms are large but...

We stayed a night on our way through Taupo. The hotel is a nice walking distance from the town itself, but not overly far. The rooms looked like it was refreshed recently. It was a compact fit, but comfy. Good for a one-night sleep over!

It seems to have been recently renovated. It is by far the most modern motel we've stayed in in NZ. It was clean, the bed was comfy, the staff were friendly enough (didn't really see them). We were happy enough, we'd stay there again if we go back to Taupo

My husband and I together with four other friends had booked one night however the earthquake happened and we were unable to head for Wellington as planned and Murray was very gracious and organised for us to stay for three nights prior to the original night - we were fondly referred to as the Wellington Refugees!

I entered the Taupo Cycle Challenge late (that's another story!) and needed a place to stay. The Bella Vista looked ideal; about 1km from the centre of Taupo - and so it proved to be. Super-friendly owners were really helpful; locking my bike in their garage overnight and giving local advice. The upstairs room was large, well-appointed and comfortable; everything...
