Ian travelled extensively for both business and pleasure around New Zealand. Whilst travelling, Ian realised consistency and reliability were two key components necessary to ease the stress of travelling. He understood that predictability can ease the numerous choices faced by guests so that they can focus on the business or pleasure at hand. Hence his vision of a nationwide network to accommodate guests was borne.
Ian’s life was cut short when he died at the age of 52 from multiple myeloma. The success of the Bella Vista Accommodation Network is a tribute to Ian’s zest and passion for life. He took solace from the fact that he had a lived a full life for 52 years whereas some of his fellow cancer sufferers are not as fortunate. As he would often say; ‘We are the sum total of our experiences, both good and bad’.
Individual motels within this network benefit from the same building design and colour scheme, therefore making each site easily recognisable and convenient to access. The business model is designed around individual ownership of the 27 motel businesses. This means that each motel has separate business owners so guests can enjoy the help and assistance of hosts who intimately know the surrounding area.
