1) Room was small and gloomy, under a staircase, VERY UNLIKE other Bella Vistas. Badly done paint touch up in small bathroom. 2) No sink in kitchen area - just a plastic collapsible bowl as in a Third World country! 3) VERY POOR WIFI, we need it for both work and leisure, so will not stay again. NOTE:staff and cleaning both excellent.

Sorry you did not enjoy your stay, the compact studios throughout Bella vista motels are of the same specs, perhaps try our superior studios for a better experience. As for the WiFi, we recognized this issue within 10 minutes of this occurring and took action to rectified this issue before it was reported by testing our speed and restarting our devices. This was then monitored closely and we did not have any further issues recorded since.
