Owning and Operating a Bella Vista Motel


The Bella Vista business model is designed around individual ownership of the Bella Vista Accommodation network's motel businesses.  Each Bella Vista Motel has separate business owners who are absolutely dedicated to the success of their motel while guests can enjoy the help and assistance of hosts who are proud of their property and intimately know the local and surrounding area.

Buying a Bella Vista Motel not only delivers you a hospitality business to manage which includes a generously sized, private three bedroom owners home but importantly, it also buys you into the Bella Vista network, a well respected Qualmark endorsed nationwide brand.

Our business framework is a key facet of our network and we encourage an open and supportive culture within all our business relationships.  No stone is left unturned and we continually improve and enhance our guest experience. All Bella Vista business owners are encouraged to contribute their ideas.  Ongoing education and inspiration is vital.
