Have stayed at a few Bella Vistas over the years and they are all pretty much the same. A few issues checking in. Couldn't find the reservation and the booking number I had was "not much use" Had an issue with the TV which was sorted out quickly and the owners were friendly and helpful Pretty reasonable value for money....

Hi Shayne, sorry couldn't find your booking, was a bit confusing with the different companies. We have always used names to find a guests booking, is usually quicker than the booking number. Thank you for staying with us Regards Marilyn & Trevor More

Our studio room was upstairs and very small. However the bed was reasonably comfortable and the shower was hot and had really good water pressure. The room was fine for a one-night sty but I wouldn't want to be staying for several days as it was just so confined.

Thank you for your feedback, we appreciate you staying with us. The compact studios are a smaller unit, we do have larger studios that we can upgrade to if requested. Regards Marilyn & Trevor More

We stayed here while travelling through Westport. The rooms were spotless, but our one complaint was that the rooms was small. This however was not a big issue for us since we only stayed one night. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

A comfortable and pleasant stay. Room was adequate and it was great to have a chance to use the laundry! Handy to town and everything was within walking distance. Weather was what can be expected on the West Coast, which the motel has no control over! Reception at check in was great.

We had the pleasure of staying here a couple of days ago and what a lovely stay we had. I have booked a few Bella Vista motels on our trip and this was the first one, if they are all as nice as this one I will be very happy. It was very very clean, neat and well laid out.... More

The Bella Vista was very conveniently located, and our room was tidy and well appointed. We arrived later than planned, past normal check in hours, and were so grateful that the hosts were willing to meet us. We would gladly stay here again.
