“Great location and value for money”
Reviewed 13 December 2011

Motel is clean and is short walk to all facilities. Friendly owner who is always ready to help. This is my 2nd year staying there. Price is reasonable for a single person. I agree with most of the other positive reviews. Highly recommended.

Just one block from Lake Wanaka the Bella Vista is a great place to stay. The price-quality ratio is excellent, especially like me just visiting for one night and looking for a good place to sleep and shower.
The owner is more then helpfull to give you all the information you need about the neighborhood and where to go. He can even book the next Bella Vista for you with a great discount.
If I'm ever in the neighberhood again this will be a sure stopover for the night.

This was our 2nd stay at Bella Vista so knew what to expect. Previously dissapointed with minimum Kitchenette facilities as not as well equipped as most we stayed at in N.Z. on 2 trips.
Nevertheless if looking for a clean ,ideally located Motel with very friendly Management & good parking for a short stay, do not hesitate .Gave us a top recommendation to Capriccio Restaurant only 300 metres away where charming owner gave us 10% off top class meal when mentioned Bella Vista. Meal was exceptionally tasty at reasonable price with great atmosphere. Suggest book table especially if want Lake view.

The motel's location is good, walking distance to lots of eateries, shops and Wanaka lake. The room was clean, well equipped with heater in the room. Fresh milk was given when we checked in. Very basic kitchenware, no microware and no sink for washing. Hair dryer was provided. We found the room was relatively small for two persons. Difficult to find a place to put our baggage and hard for two persons to move around. We understand it's a compact studio room; the motel does provide bigger room for other price range. Nevertheless, we found it too small as compare to other motel with similar range of pricing. It's alright for a single person to stay.

If you need a shower cap, please bring it along as the motel does not provide it. Other difficulty we encountered was the tap water. The hot and cold water tap was separated. So you either get too hot or too cold water running.

Overall, the motel is alright to stay for a short period of time if you do not mind the small room.
