Bella Vista Motel Kariong
Ranked #1 of 1 Kariong B&B and Inns
Reviewed 9 July 2016

What a shocker. Every aspect is in need of serious maintenance. It shifts this 3 star place to 2 stars or less. From not being able to get into the room because the barrel of the lock was so worn to no o-ring seal in the sink pop up plug so you could hold water in the sink. Sticky remote controls, the cheapest and nastiest Chinese TV I have ever seen (What is a pangoo), towel rail fell off the wall, dodgy furniture, broken blinds, home made grouting, it just oozes slime. Now for the "nice" lady at reception. When I brought some of the mission critical things to her attention her first response was to argue and her second was to provide lip service in a monotone so that you would go away. My worst experience in a motel on the planet. Really dangerous entry and exit onto the highway too. Find somewhere else. Anywhere else.

Room Tip: Tip is to find another venue

Close to shops
Quiet Rooms (we couldn't hear people next door)
Nice View out back (we were near the highway)
Staff were nice

Very loud highway we didn't like it ( could hear even with the doors closed)
Smelly Bathroom ( Bathroom smells like it didn't get cleaned!)
internet was very slow for the price you paid (theres a limit if you are on a business trip i wouldn't use their internet!)

other then that beds where comfy & we had a nice stay.

We stayed there. Had no problem . Value for money. Its not a five star hotel. You get what you paid for. Overall happy.

We went for family holiday and stayed there overnight. The guy was ok. Gave us a nice room . Room was clean. A bit noisy but close to Reptile park and walkabout zoo.

Very small, old rooms with very little parking and outdoor space for children to play. Pool is at the back of the premises right next to the dusty driveway. Bathrooms are tiny. Bunk beds are cheap and nasty and make a squeaky noise every time you move. Reception smells like a curry spice store, not very appealing.

Very noisy, very shabby rooms no hot water and felt dirty. Sorry
Very slippery footing out front of rooms, my 2 yrs old almost fell between the rails when slipped on first floor. Not safe enough for my liking.
