The original Villa Bella Hotel was located in the town of Christiana, Manchester, in the house which is now the home of Mr. Audley Shaw, sitting Member of Parliament for the area.

Villa Bella Hotel was opened in 1941 by Ida Steers - the 40-year-old daughter of John Foreman, the leading businessman in Christiana at the time. Mrs. Steers was a lady of impeccable taste and this was reflected in her selection of china and silverware pieces some of which still remain today.

These were imported from England and bore the Hotel's Crest. A woman of great charm, she was the perfect hostess and was known to go to great lengths to make her guests comfortable.
