Nice room, clean well presented. Not far from town. This is a two storey building so has some views with outside balcony. Lovely on a sunny day. The room has all that you would expect hairdryers etc. Great water pressure for shower. Good WiFi.

A motel which was close to town, easy to find and a nice place to stay. We stayed here with family from Auckland for a family internment and a 65th birthday party, all close by. There is good off street parking

Bella Vista Is well located on the road as you come into Ashburton from the North. The studio room was clean, well set out, equiped with a fridge and plenty of kitchen utensils. I would recommend the addition of a microwave.
